Volkswagen ART3on: Apprentice-built special hits 100km/h in 3.9 seconds

A team of Volkswagen Australia apprentices has made the Arteon 206TSI into a sub-4.0-second car, as a showcase for the World Time Attack Challenge at Sydney Motorsport Park. The modified five-door, dubbed ART3on, makes 360kW and 600Nm from its 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, up from 206kW and 350Nm. That extra grunt has been liberated by a raft of 'Stage 3' parts from RacingLine, including software tweaks and hardware changes like a bigger turbocharger.

While the Stonic has been leaked online, it looks like Australia won't be getting the compact SUV.

Sydney Motorsport Park Drift Festival coming in January

Sydney Motorsport Park will be filled with smoke and the sound of screeching tyres when the track's redeveloped South Circuit hosts its inaugural drift meeting in January 2013. With 150 entries, including some of the country's best master sliders, as well as special guests, trade stands and music, the Sydney Motorsport Park Drift Festival will light up the circuit, formerly known as Eastern Creek Raceway, on January 26, 2013 for almost 12 hours.
