But increased scrutiny has also brought government assistance to the automotive sector into the spotlight. In the face of declining sales the public is asking why […]
Sebastien Ogier’s good fortune has continued after he fought back to win Rally de Espana on the weekend. Jari-Matti Latvala’s second place ensured Volkswagen secured the manufacturers’ championship in style, too, registering the team’s first one-two finish. Rally de Espana is a diverse event covering tarmac and gravel with the extra dimension of night stages. […]
Video of a Shelby Daytona Cobra, filmed at full noise on a race track is a very rare thing indeed. Especially when you consider only six of these American muscle cars were made (between 1964–65). Powered by a Ford 289 V8 this example sounds like thunder. We thank Marchettino for sharing this video with the […]
If you’re a fan of the Mad Max trilogy—let’s face it, who isn’t—we’re guessing you have a broad grin on your face right about now. Up for sale in England is this 1974 Ford Falcon XB GT Coupe V8 Interceptor. It’s understood to be one of six cars used in the filming of the movies. […]
It’s back to earth with a thud for Chris Harris who has followed his epic Ferrari film with a test in a couple of mini hot hatchbacks. Not that he seems to mind too much. And after finishing his duties in the road cars, Harris has a nice surprise for Renault fans at the end.

Imagine this, you’re about to tackle the Nürburgring in a car powered by a 1.0 litre three cylinder engine. Hardly seems worth getting worried about. How fast can it be? Allow Chris Harris to tweet, fart and whistle his way around the Nordschleife and show you. [Thanks to Tiaan for the tip]
WRC driver Michal Kosciuszko has ended his relationship with MINI and the Motorsport Italia team due to ongoing mechanical and technical issues. With immediate effect he will now start preparations to race a Ford Fiesta WRC with M-Sport. It’s fair to say MINI’s comeback to the world rally stage, while accompanied with great fanfare and […]
Ford Australia has confirmed it will cease all local production at its Broadmeadows and Geelong factories from October 2016. Declining Falcon and Territory sales, along with combined losses of $430 million over the last two years would appear to be the main reasons behind today’s announcement.

The new MINI John Cooper Works GP has arrived in Australia and it might be about to kick a few goals down under. That’s certainly the case if this video from Evo magazine is anything to go by. Perhaps for local relevance the cars they tested the GP2 against are not very worthy, but as […]
