Lexus Australia: Strong sales driven by hybrid demand

Lexus has defied the downwards trend in the luxury market throughout 2019, and it's crediting its range of hybrid vehicles for the results. Toyota's luxury arm was up 5.9 per cent in May and has exactly matched 2018 sales year-to-date. That's in stark contrast with BMW (down 3.8 per cent year-to-date), Audi (down 29 per cent), and Mercedes-Benz cars (down 14 per cent).

Race-inspired Ford GT coming to Goodwood

A new variant of the Ford GT has been teased ahead of its debut at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The most obvious change we can see from the shadowy preview image is the addition of a large rear wing, and a roof-mounted air intake. More than this we don't know, as Ford has yet to provide any details about the car.
