Mazda MX-5: Manual sales dominating Down Under, and in the USA

We're often told manual cars don't sell in meaningful numbers Down Under, but certain models buck the trend. Models like the Mazda MX-5. A recent report from the USA revealed 76% of MX-5 soft-top buyers are opting for three-pedal cars, and 52% of RF buyers are choosing to row their own. Which got us wondering if the story is the same in Australia. Thankfully, Mazda was happy to indulge our curiosity.

Ferrari hybrid coming May 31 with 735kW - report

Ferrari's first 'mainstream' hybrid model will lob on May 31, and is expected to pump out a whopping 735kW of power thanks to three electric motors. That's according to the Ferrari Chat forum, which this week had an invitation to the hybrid's unveiling posted on one of its threads. Chatter on the forum suggests the 735kW car, which hasn't been named, will blend a V8 engine with three electric motors for performance that puts the 812 Superfast in the shade.
