Aston Martin DB11 v Vantage GT8 drag race - video

In something of an unintentional old v new battle, Mat Watson from the UK's Carwow pitted a DB11 V8 against a previous-generation Vantage GT8 – the latter owned by popular YouTube personality, Shmee150...

McLaren 720S vs Tesla Model S P100D drag race - video

The Tesla Model S is very, very quick in a straight line. The McLaren 720S is also very, very quick in a straight line, albeit through different means to the Tesla. You can probably see where this is headed. The team at CarWow has teamed up with YouTube personality Shmee150 to deliver a few interesting head-to-heads, one of which is published below...

Off-road test: 2018 Nissan Navara ST-X

While it took Nissan three cracks at getting the Navara's ride and handling tune right, the 2018 Nissan Navara Series III builds on what is an already impressive platform that needed some minor tweaks. We've driven and reviewed the Navara previously, but how does it perform as an off-road lifestyle utility? We hit the road to see how it stacks up when the going gets tough...

Lewis Hamilton puts the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door through its paces - video

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe has a clumsy name, but it promises to bring range-topping AMG performance to a wider audience, with four seats and a 470kW/900Nm twin-turbo V8 engine. To put its family credentials to the test, Mercedes-AMG has turned to F1 champion Lewis Hamilton and a carload of stuffed toys...

BMW 740Le v Lexus LS500h 0-250km/h - video

The BMW 740Le and Lexus LS500h are two hybrid-powered luxury limousines which wouldn't necessarily be your first choice for a drag race. In a new YouTube clip, however, AutoTopNL has compared the acceleration from the two upper-large land yachts from 0 to 250km/h – and the result may surprise you. Powering the plug-in hybrid BMW is a 190kW/400Nm 2...

2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class review: Australian launch

Our first look at the all-new Mercedes-Benz A-Class has revealed a surprise package that will really redefine this segment. It makes the BMW 1 Series look ancient in comparison and the Audi A3 like a vanilla-coloured appliance.

Mark Webber might have spent the majority of his career in a Red Bull Racing F1 car, but he's forged a strong connection to Porsche since leaving the world of single-seaters. Having raced the 919 Hybrid, he's now serving as an ambassador for the brand – and it appears the role is more than just a financial arrangement...

The limited-edition Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign is a show-stopping take on the R35 GT-R formula, debuted at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Now it's been let loose on Spa-Francorchamps, in a manufacturer-produced video. It might be a special car worth almost $1.5 million, but the driver isn't holding back...

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo has a claimed top speed of 286km/h, though you'll never get to those speeds Down Under thanks to our strict  laws. However, back in Europe, AutoTopNL has taken a Cayenne Turbo to the limit, demonstrating the performance SUV's ferocious straight-line acceleration and top speed capabilities in a couple of videos on YouTube...

Audi RS3 vs Jaguar I-Pace drag race - video

Internal combustion or electric power – which is quicker? Tesla has highlighted how hard electric vehicles can accelerate, but Jaguar has taken a slightly different approach with the I-Pace, shying away from bonkers 0-100km/h times. For now, anyway. With a handy 294kW and 680Nm on tap, the first all-electric Jaguar has exactly the same amount of power as the Audi RS3...

The new engine in this Mazda 6 isn't exactly going to set the world on fire in terms of performance, but it's a perfect match for the chassis and provides enough sportiness if you want to have a crack on occasion.

2018 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera review: First drive

Driving any Aston Martin is a privilege, and this DBS Superleggera is no different. It’s stunningly fast, properly premium, different and classy. The fact that it can also be so easy to drive and benign is a sign of the times at the highest end of the buying scale. It will be rare Down Under too, and that in itself is priceless.

Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4-door hits the Nurburgring - video

The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-door (breathes deeply) is the second standalone model to be launched under Benz's performance arm, and now we have vision of some early examples roaring around the Nurburgring circuit in Germany. Powered by a 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 making a stonking 470kW of power and 900Nm of torque, put to a rear-biased 4Matic+ all-wheel drive system via a nine-speed automatic transmission, the GT 4-door is a seriously powerful beast...
