30km/h speed limits coming to Melbourne's north

Collingwood and Fitzroy residents in Melbourne will be subjected to a 30km/h speed limit trial from 'late September', as Yarra Council seeks to make life easier for pedestrians and cyclists in residential areas. The new limits, which are a first in Australia, will be applied to the residential zone bordered by Alexandra Parade, Hoddle, Johnston and Nicholson streets. Smith Street and Brunswick Street – the busiest thoroughfares in the area – will maintain their 40km/h limits.

It appears the new 500X will draw heavily from the latest Fiat 500 in terms of design, getting similar headlight, fog-light and LED daytime-running light treatments as its smaller stablemate.

2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA45 spied

The next-generation Mercedes-AMG CLA45 has been caught for the first time, a week-and-a-half after a regular CLA was spied doing laps of the Nurburgring. Sitting low and squat on low-profile rubber, the CLA45 is easily distinguished from its more pedestrian siblings thanks to a small spoiler on the boot lip, massive quad exhaust tips, a prominent rear diffuser, and vertical vents on the rear bumper.

Lotus Elise meets the girl it was named after

The Lotus Elise has been around for some 22 years, and this week the lightweight sports car reunited with the girl that inspired its name – Elisa Artioli. Her grandfather is former chairman of Lotus, Romano Artioli, who was overseeing the British sports car manufacturer when the Elise was launched in 1995. Elisa inspired the sports car's name, and was even present at the launch with the first production line-built example 22 years ago (below) which is the same car she's pictured with today.
