2019 BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe spied

These photos of two BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe prototypes seemingly confirm the styling details of a four-door flagship with a sloping roofline, revealed earlier this year in a trademark filing. It also follows the template set out by the M8 Gran Coupe concept, which was unveiled at this year's Geneva motor show. The Gran Coupe is expected to round out the new 8 Series' body style offerings, which also include a coupe and will expand to encompass a yet-to-be-launched convertible.

Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4-door hits the Nurburgring - video

The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-door (breathes deeply) is the second standalone model to be launched under Benz's performance arm, and now we have vision of some early examples roaring around the Nurburgring circuit in Germany. Powered by a 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 making a stonking 470kW of power and 900Nm of torque, put to a rear-biased 4Matic+ all-wheel drive system via a nine-speed automatic transmission, the GT 4-door is a seriously powerful beast.

NSW: 40km/h limit past emergency services to be trialled

New South Wales motorists will need to slow to 40km/h as they pass emergency services on the side of the road, as part of a road rule trial kicking off on September 1. Drivers moving in both directions on undivided roads are impacted by the rule, and face a $448 fine and three demerit points if they don't comply. Only once they're a 'safe distance' past the emergency vehicles can motorists accelerate back to the speed limit.
