Aston-Martin AM-RB 003 revealed

If you are having difficulty keeping up with Aston Martin's plans for mid-engined cars, we fully understand. We've already seen near-final images of the Valkyrie – set to become the world's fastest road car – as well as seen the concept of the track-only AMR Pro version. Now the Geneva motor show brings two more for our delight and delectation: the chunkily code-named AM-RB 003 that you see here, and also the Vanquish Vision concept which will complete the family, for now at least.

Kia's growth continues, closing the gap on Hyundai

Overall new vehicle sales continue to go backwards in Australia, but one brand that keeps bucking the trend is Kia, having doubled its sales between 2014-18 and continuing to climb so far in 2019 to boot. The ‘second’ Korean brand after Hyundai has gone from also-ran, to fast-growing upstart, to established brand hovering around the top 5 overall position in impressively rapid time, clawing its way ahead of Volkswagen, Nissan, Honda, Holden and Subaru in the process.

VFACTS: February 2019 new vehicle sales

New vehicle sales in Australia continued to hit the brakes in February, down 9.3 per cent over the same last year, to 87,102 units. Finance sector reform, the flat housing market and a looming election all continue to act as cited headwinds. With just two full sales months completed in 2019, annual sales are already 15,500 units (8.4 per cent) lower than 2018’s then-running tally.

Skoda Vision iV Concept reveals new design direction for Czech brand

If you squint at it for long enough you could be forgiven for thinking this car has some resemblance to the Lamborghini Urus. It is in fact the latest Skoda concept called the Vision iV. And while it’s an electric-only vehicle for now – based on Volkswagen’s modular EV platform – the Vision iV holds another secret.

2021 BMW i4 spied in the snow

A prototype believed to be the BMW i4 electric vehicle has been spotted tearing up the white stuff in Europe, ahead of an anticipated market launch next decade. While it was originally thought the new model would draw heavily from the futuristic-designed i Vision Dynamics concept that previewed it, the i4's design looks like it will be quite conventional – so much so you could mistake it for a 4 Series.
