Ultra-rare Lamborghini Diablo expected to sell for $1 million

An ultra-rare Lamborghini Diablo GTR race car is expected to fetch in excess of $1 million when it goes under the hammer in an Australian online auction this weekend. One of just 30 examples ever made, the Diablo GTR was designed for competition, replacing the Diablo SV-R raced in the Diablo Super Trofeo series. The GTR, based on the roadgoing Diablo GT, was unveiled to the public at the 1999 Bologna motor show before making its racing debut in 2000.

2021 Volkswagen Golf adopts conventional automatic, DSG for performance models

Regular versions of the 2021 Volkswagen Mk8 Golf will eschew dual-clutch gearboxes in favour of conventional automatic transmissions. The switch only applies to regular versions of the 2021 Volkswagen Mk8 Golf powered by a 1.4-litre 110kW petrol engine with an automatic, the same combination found in the Skoda Karoq. The 2021 Volkswagen Mk8 Golf R, GTI, and Alltrack models will still use dual-clutch automatic transmissions (known as DSG in Volkswagen parlance).
