2019 Hyundai Veloster N revealed among leaked images

Images of the new 2018 Hyundai Veloster have surfaced online, revealing not only the regular car but also the top-shelf, high-performance Veloster N. This isn't our first look at the new Veloster without disguise, although it is certainly the clearest sight yet. Likewise, the N variant had previously been seen only in heavy camouflage, spied during test. Above: the regular new Veloster. Top of article: the hero N variant

2018 Kia Cee'd Sportswagon caught with Cerato on its face

The next-generation Kia Cee'd wagon has been spied undergoing testing in Germany, trying to hide a front-end design that looks awfully like the new Cerato. Unfortunately, the test driver spotted the photographer from our spy agency, and promptly reversed away out of sight, meaning there are no pictures of the car's rear.

2019 Audi A1 snapped during winter testing

The 2019 Audi A1 has been spied during cold-weather testing, previewing a new face and bigger body for the littlest member of the four-ringed family. When it lands, the car will likely ride on a slightly longer version of the Volkswagen Polo's platform, designed to deliver the extra legroom and luxury expected of an Audi.

BMW smashes longest continuous drift record

The 2018 BMW M5 has smashed the record for the longest continuous drift, with the time of eight hours, the German sedan blitzed the previous record by a massive 230-kilometres, with a new distance of 374km. The 4.4-litre V8-powered BMW has 441kW of power and 750Nm of torque, reaching 100km/h in 3.4 seconds. But speed was not a factor in this record, with the average speed set around the BMW Performance Centre in South California being 46.6km/h.

2018 Summernats 31 wrap-up and image gallery

The 31st instalment of Street Machine Summernats has been run and won. Despite the temperature being in the high thirties, plenty of punters made their way through the gates to experience the annual automotive festival. Personally, it was my first time at Summernats, and I regret not having gone earlier! Australia’s wildest car show has something for everyone: modified street cars, elite show cars, car audio sound-off, dyno competition, motorkhana and of course, burnouts. Lots of burnouts.
