EXCLUSIVE: A rare snail never before detected in Australia has slammed the brakes on 900 brand-new Mercedes-Benz vehicles worth more than $50 million – after being turned around at shipping ports and stopped from entering the country. The Department of Agriculture has demanded all 900 cars be exported after “the detection of a number of exotic snails” on five separate shipments of vehicles “imported from Europe”.

TRD GR Supra 3000GT Concept teased

Toyota Racing Development (TRD) is preparing a Supra that's been cranked up to 11 for SEMA, having drawn inspiration from a classic Supra concept. At this point we only have a shadowy video to work with, but the Supra 3000GT Concept certainly looks like something special. Down back there's a towering rear wing with a smaller spoiler worked into the bootlid. Although it's tough to tell, it looks like there'll be an angry diffuser as well.
