Your chance to own an iconic Australian 'movie car'... we think

Remember the Australian TV series, Legacy of the Silver Shadow? Neither do we. It apparently ran for thirteen episodes back in 2002, and as well as featuring a nonsensical plot and a bunch of actors who went on to have minor roles in Neighbours, it included an iconic vehicle known as 'The Shadow Mobile'. The silver machine is a one-off cross between a personnel carrier and some kind of spaceship, and it could be yours!

Lada Niva: There's a new one!

Russia's answer to the Suzuki Jimny and Jeep Wrangler – the Lada Niva – is on track for a complete overhaul by the middle of the decade. Announced as part of parent company Groupe Renault's 'Renaulution' business plan overnight, Lada has confirmed it will introduce four new models by 2025, one of which will be an all-new generation of its Niva off-roader, due sometime in 2024 – a spiritual successor to the iconic, 'first-generation' Niva, introduced in 1977 under Soviet ownership.

Lada 4x4 Vision concept unveiled

The Lada 4x4 Vision was unveiled overnight at the Moscow motor show, previewing what could be a spiritual successor to the legendary Niva. Riding on 21-inch wheels, and finished in a shade of matte bronze, the Vision takes Lada's current design philosophy and cranks it to the max. The X-shaped motif currently used on a variety of production models has not only been applied to the side sculpting, but also the tail-lights, headlight graphics, cabin vents, rear bash plate, and other areas.
