NO HALT­ING AMG

Mercedes-AMG has knocked Porsche from its perch as Aus­tralia’s favourite go-fast brand. More than 14 per cent of all Ben­zes sold here are from the AMG hot­house at Af­fal­ter­bach in Ger­many, enough to give the Mercedes sub-brand a sales lead of 832 cars over Porsche last year.

MOUN­TAIN ROY­ALTY

A La­Fer­rari is set for a tilt at the Mount Panorama road car lap record next month. Some of the world’s quick­est cars will run in spe­cial timed ses­sions dur­ing the Bathurst 12-Hour meet. A Nis­san GT-R Nismo, Mercedes-AMG GT R and Bent­ley Con­ti­nen­tal Su­per­sports are likely ri­vals.

BRONCO HON­CHOS

Ford Aus­tralia’s devel­op­ment team has kicked another goal, pro­vid­ing the me­chan­i­cal foun­da­tions for a born-again Ford Bronco in the US. The new-age Bronco, a short-wheel­base off-roader sim­i­lar to the Jeep Wran­gler, will roll on the same plat­form as the Ranger and Ever­est.
