The Cars of Fuji Speedway

How do you capture the essence of a city or town? What makes a particular place hum, sing and buzz? Is it the people? The culture? The architecture? Food? It is, of course, all of these things. And more. For us at CarAdvice, it is, unsurprisingly, also the cars...

Riding shotgun in a B-double truck: a CarAdvice podcast special

Driving and reviewing cars is something we do best at CarAdvice. We pretty much know them inside-out, but when it comes to trucks, we're not so knowledgeable. Every motorist shares the road with trucks, so we decided to take a look inside the world of trucks and their drivers, by riding shotgun in an International ProStar B-double truck with driver René Bueman...


Interview: McLaren ambassador, Amanda McLaren

Interview: McLaren ambassador, Amanda McLaren

Three years after our exclusive chat with Amanda McLaren at the 675LT reveal, we once again had the chance to catch up with the McLaren brand ambassador and daughter of founder, Bruce McLaren, at the launch of the 600LT at Goodwood Festival of Speed. But this time, we got a bit more candid and personal. Read the words below or listen to the interview...

Driven: Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Edition

We get to do some pretty cool things at CarAdvice sometimes. Like this, the time we visited Porsche's Exclusive Manufaktur facility at its German headquarters. Immediately after, we were beckoned across the road, where a fleet of 911s belonging to the Porsche Museum sat gleaming in the Stuttgart sun. Take your pick, we were told...

Inside the McLaren Technology Centre

Ask any McLaren fan where heaven is, and most likely they’ll tell you it’s in Woking, England, the home of the McLaren Technology Centre. From classic to modern, road and race cars, this is where McLarens are born and bred. It’s all housed under one roof, and we were lucky enough to be given a tour of the facility, which is usually only open to loyal McLaren customers...

2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed: Touring the grounds

If you have a strong passion for cars and haven't been to the Goodwood Festival of Speed, what have you been doing? It's one of the most celebrated car events in the world, where vehicles with a strong racing history have the chance to race down the Duke of Richmond’s (formerly Lord March, courtesy of the Royal Family's peculiar naming structure) driveway with the stunning Goodwood House as a backdrop, while more than 200,000 people watch on...

Behind the wheel of the first-generation Honda Civic

Usually, when we have a classic car visit our garage, we undertake an old versus new comparison, pointing out differences in driving, exterior, and technology etc. But not this time. When Honda offered us a drive of the first-generation 1973 Honda Civic it recently acquired, we wanted to give it the spotlight, as its younger sibling, the tenth-generation 2018 Honda Civic, has seen plenty of it since its launch in 2016...

Slingin' mud in the Yamaha Wolverine X4

Bungee jumping, skydiving, stunt boats, black-run heli-skiing… There’s legitimacy to the claim that New Zealand’s Queenstown is the adventure capital of the world. It’s certainly a fitting venue for CarAdvice’s introduction to a developing breed of transport that aims to offer recreational fun for families, as well as serving as a utility vehicle for farms and commercial businesses...

Sand driving tips: Stuck? Here's how to get out

Right now, dual-cab utes sit number one and two on the list of highest-selling cars in Australia. They’re bought by tradies and 4WDers right? Wrong. Many of them are bought as an everyday run-around and rarely, if ever, hit the dirt or sand. As a keen off-roader, I find it upsetting that many 4WDs never heed their calling...

Van Life: 2018 Volkswagen Transporter Trakkadu 400

With the never-ending rise of house prices in this country – although, even as I write this, the news pages have swung around to the gloom and doom of predicting massive price drops – it’s enough to have me dreaming of something else. An escape from the mundaneness of the endless news cycle. Good news, bad news, indifferent news, any news really...

CarAdvice at Custom Cars and Coffee, Sandown – Gallery

CarAdvice was on the ground at Custom Cars and Coffee at Sandown Raceway, Victoria, last weekend, showing off some of the cars in our garage and checking out the cool metal on show. From wild, wide-body rotaries to stunning classic Porsches – and every single Ford hot hatch built in the past decade – there was something for everyone...
