British manufacturers not committing to lower prices in Australia, despite free trade agreement

Manufacturers that build cars in Britain are yet to commit to lower Australian prices, despite the announcement of a new Free Trade Agreement "immediately eliminating" an existing 5 per cent automotive import tariff. Affected British-built cars include Nissan's Juke, Leaf, and Qashqai small SUVs, and the majority of vehicles built by Jaguar, Land Rover, Mini, Aston Martin, McLaren, Bentley and Rolls-Royce.

A hypercar for your desk: LEGO Technic McLaren Senna GTR

Better clear some shelf space, as the latest LEGO Technic ‘real’ car model has arrived, a LEGO McLaren Senna GTR. The McLaren Senna was launched in 2018 as the third in the McLaren Ultimate Series lineup (trailing the F1 and P1). Designed as a textbook function-over-form laptime crusher, the Senna features a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 that pumps out 588kW and 800Nm, which are massive numbers for a car with a mass of just 1198kg (lighter than a Toyota Corolla).

McLaren Tiger Stripe: Young Aussie engineers design the drift car of tomorrow

A futuristic drift car has been designed by students at Adelaide’s St Francis Primary School, as part of a program to promote “science, maths, and design skills.” The two-metre long papier-mache concept – known as Tiger Stripe – reportedly took 10 weeks to build, and is loosely based on the McLaren Senna GTR. The name references the vehicle’s orange rims, which, according to the year-three students who built them, “look like fire” when spinning.
