FORE TASTE

VW’s fastest Golf vari­ants, the R cars that sit above the GTi, are get­ting an up­date. The Golf R Wolfs­burg hatch is due in Au­gust from $57,990 (wagon $59,990). An R wagon from $57,490 joins the line-up in Jan­uary.

SPRING INTO AC­TION

Thou­sands of ute own­ers could un­know­ingly ex­ceed the front axle weight limit by adding off-road­ing ex­tras such as bull­bars, lights and winches. The po­ten­tial for over­load­ing is high­lighted by Ped­ders Sus­pen­sion, which has a vested in­ter­est — it pro­vides cer­ti­fied spring up­grades to over­come that prob­lem.

GO ONE BET­TER

Mercedes-AMG will join the su­per­car ranks along­side Fer­rari, McLaren and Lam­borgh­ini. What’s known as Project One is sched­uled for un­veil­ing at the Frank­furt mo­tor show but AMG just teased it at the Nur­bur­gring 24-hour. Its 730kW out­put is aided by 120kW elec­tric mo­tors on each front wheel.
