Old skool Land Rover goodness

Land Rover will be celebrating 67 years of production at this year’s Goodwood Revival (11–13 September). To do that they’ll be rocking the show with a display of Series I and Defender models. Included in the mirth will be ‘The Defender 2,000,000’, which as you might have already guessed, is the 2 millionth Defender to […]

BMW Motorsport icons never die

BMW USA will be participating in the 2015 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion later this month and has come up trumps with a few photos of its past motorsport icons. We liked the pics of the 3.0 CSL aka the Batmobile and the mid-engined M1. And because we’re nice folks here at AUSmotive we sharing these […]

Classic Mini Clubman Estate wallpapers

It’s safe to say the release of the new MINI Clubman didn’t exactly capture the attention of the readers. “What a hideous turd,” was the first comment left here on AUSmotive and elsewhere the feedback given freely to MINI wasn’t exactly flattering. It may surprise a few of you to learn that with the release […]

McLaren F1 GT wallpapers

Only three road going McLaren F1 GTs were ever made. This was done to homologate the F1 GTR ‘Longtail’ for racing. The car you see here is chassis #58F1GT and will be on display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend. We thank McLaren for sharing these images with us and even though the […]

1995 McLaren F1 GTR #06R

This is the 1995 McLaren F1 GTR, chassis #06R, and it is the inspiration for the livery of the just revealed P1 GTR. Driven by a team of Derek Bell, his son Justin Bell and Andy Wallace car #51 finished third in the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans. McLaren gave us these pics as […]

Alfa Romeo 2000 Sportiva

Alfa Romeo is the gold sponsor for the 2014 Mille Miglia regularity race, which takes place later this week. Under current regulations cars that compete in the modern Mille Miglia must have competed in the original era of the event (1927–1957). Thankfully for our eyes this 1954 Alfa Romeo 2000 Sportiva did just that. The […]

Random wallpaper: 1966 Jaguar XJ13

It’s been a long while since we brought you a random wallpaper, an image we offer up for no other reason than the car in question must be shared with you. So when this image of a 1966 Jaguar XJ13 prototype came our way we knew exactly what we had to do. Those of you […]

Sauber F1.08 cutaway wallpapers

Back in May we saw the awesome video from the Sauber F1 Team showing their F1.08 cut in half. Chief designer, Matt Morris, was on hand to guide us through the maze and at the time we declared it the “coolest behind the scenes F1 video you will see all year.” Nothing we’ve seen since […]

Even an E64 BMW M6 looks better on nice rims

The E64 BMW M6, in our eyes it’s one of BMW’s greatest cock-ups. A glorious V10 engine wrapped up in styling you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy. But, as these pics show, there’s nothing a lowered ride and choice rims can’t fix. D2FORGED are responsible for the wheels, they’re 21″ CV11 Deep Concave running […]

Ken Block Gymkhana FIVE wallpapers

Can you believe that Ken Block’s Gymkhana FIVE video has surpassed 20 million views in just one week! To celebrate we’ve taken advantage of Ford UK making these wallpapers of Ken tearing around San Francisco available for download. Simply click on each pic to load a 2000px super image.

Vintage automotive typography

For us, the beauty and style of vintage vehicle logotypes is as worthy of admiration as the cars themselves. So we thank AUSmotive reader Michael for sending in this link to a collection of 1950s automotive typography captured from a car fair in Minnesota, USA. There’s over 80 images in all, so if this is […]

The friendly folk from D2FORGED have been in touch to share with us some wallpapers of a BMW 750Li rolling on some pretty damn nice 22″ FMS-09 wheels. The wheels are three-piece and feature brushed aluminium centres with polished chrome lips. There’s nine more pics after the break and all you need to do to […]
