Audi, Jaguar and Land Rover sales stall, BMW and Mercedes stabilise, Lexus posts record result

Audi had a year it would rather forget after being hamstrung by supply of new models due to certification delays out of Europe, while German rivals BMW and Mercedes weathered the 2019 storm by holding their own in a declining market.

Aston Martin announces new V12 Speedster

Ferrari crashes into Sydney shopfront, cops catch three supercars during high-speed chase

A series of supercar skirmishes in the past 24 hours have proven in no uncertain terms that just because you can afford a fast car doesn't necessarily mean you know how to drive one.
