The 10 quickest cars for sale in Australia in 2021

As it turns out, identifying the quickest cars in Australia for 2021 is not an easy feat. Not only do they need to be available locally, they also need to meet our criterion of completing the 0-100km/h sprint in under three seconds. You may be expecting to see brands such as BMW, Audi and Mercedes, but interestingly, they don't make the cut. Audi's R8 Performance misses out, clocking a time of 3.3 seconds, while the BMW M8 and Mercedes-Benz AMG GT 63 S both get there in 3.2 seconds.

Tesla disputes Chinese recall of almost 30,000 cars – report

Tesla has reportedly challenged a recall for almost 30,000 American-made Model X and Model S cars imported into China, disputing claims there is an issue with the vehicles' suspension and instead blaming the problem on "driver abuse". The recall, lodged with China's State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) by Tesla Motor's Beijing arm, apparently affects Model X and S cars produced between September 17, 2013 and January 15, 2018, and imported into China.

Audi e-tron recalled in the US for fire risk

Audi and Jaguar are facing issues with the e-tron and I-Pace overseas, with the German marque issuing a recall over a potential fire risk, while the British brand is investigating a report of a fire in Europe. In the US, Audi has issued a safety recall for the e-tron quattro over concerns water can get into the charging port.
