2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio: Australian launch confirmed for early next year

The muscly new 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV will make its Australian debut early next year, the Italian brand's local arm has confirmed. Speaking with press at the launch of the Giulia Quadrifoglio performance sedan, new Fiat Chrysler Australia chief Steve Zanlunghi said buyers can expect full Stelvio details to lob in late 2017, ahead of its market debut. "It's supposed to go on sale in the first quarter of next year, so [pricing and details will come] probably in December," he said.

Alfa Romeo Giulia Sportwagon scrapped

Plans for an Alfa Romeo Giulia wagon have been shelved, with the company believing the Stelvio will fill that market niche. Alfredo Altavilla, Alfa Romeo's head of manufacturing, has told Car the company has "decided not to do a Giulia Sportwagon". Altavilla isn't sure the brand needs a Giulia wagon, given the related Stelvio crossover drives well enough. Indeed, he believes that anyone who would have been in the market for the wagon will end up buying the Stelvio.

'Mad' Mike's original MadBul RX-7 gets old-school facelift

If you're a fan of the mighty Mazda RX-7, you've not doubt heard of New Zealand drifter 'Mad' Mike Whiddett, and surely seen – or indeed heard – his ear-melting quad-rotor Mazda RX-7. Well, after 10 years in his possession, and more than a handful of rebuilds, the professional Kiwi skidder has treated the car to another refresh. And this time it's got an old-school flavour to it.

2018 Audi RS3 Sportback: Faster, lighter, more powerful

Audi’s manic hot hatch, the RS3 Sportback, just got a whole lot more mental, with more power, more torque and a lighter, sleeker body. Due to be launched at next month’s Geneva motor show, Audi is claiming the refreshed RS3 Sportback 0-100km/h sprint time of just 4.2 seconds. That’s remarkable performance from its 2.5-litre five-cylinder engine, now boasting 294kW (that’s 400hp in the old language) and 480Nm of torque.

2017 Audi S4 pricing and specs

The 2017 Audi S4 sedan and Avant wagon have arrived in Australia, eight months after the global launch, bringing improvements to every area and a $6000 sharper price point than ever before – starting under $100,000 for the first time. Audi’s understated muscle car is based off the B9 Audi A4 sedan and wagon range, and will serve as the performance flagship in lieu of a new-gen RS4 – which we might see revealed as soon as next month’s Geneva motor show.
