I Am Dumbfounded By The Absurdity Of This 1,000 HP Toyota Hilux Rat Rod

Cars Gizmodo Australia

Josh Mazerolle’s truck is a 1977 Toyota Hilux (cool) with an LS V8 (whoa) twin-turbocharged (what?) to “about 1000 wheel horsepower” (!) and the build process itself sounds just as improbable. More »

This Is Why We Watch Racing, Folks

Cars Gizmodo Australia

Watch this Porsche 911 pass a Mercedes AMG GT flat out, with two wheels fully off-road, and listen to the 24 Hours of Nürburgring announcer appropriately freak the hell out. Seriously, it’s nothing short of spectacular. More »

The Holden Acadia Is A Big SUV For People Who Hate Big SUVs

Cars Gizmodo Australia

I'm not a fan of giant SUVs in the city. I'm not comfortable driving them and I get irrationally angry about anyone with massive cars who don't take them off road, camping or at least 20km beyond the outskirts of Sydney's inner west. So I was a
'I'm not a fan of giant SUVs in the city. I'm not comfortable driving them and I get irrationally angry about anyone with massive cars who don't take them off road, camping or at least 20km beyond the outskirts of Sydney's inner west. So I was a somewhat apprehensive about taking on the 2019 Holden Acadia LTZ-V 2WD. At over 2000kg it is a hefty lad and takes up its fair share of room on the road. Imagine my surprise when I was reluctant to hand it back at the end of my loan period. Between the incredibly comprehensive tech package, relative nimbleness and a boot capable of housing many cases of wine, I found myself a bit smitten.\t\t\t\t\t More »'

Newcastle snag to AHG-AP Eagers merger

Cars Australia News Today


'The competition watchdog has expressed “preliminary concerns” about the possible aspect of AP Eagers’ proposed acquisition of rival car dealer Automotive Holdings Group.The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says it has concerns about how the tie-up would affect competition north of Sydney, but says the merger would be unlikely to affect competition nationally or in Australia’s biggest cities. “The ACCC is seeking further feedback from market participants about this proposed transaction, in particular regarding the Newcastle/Hunter Valley region,” Australian Competition and Consumer Commission acting chairwoman Delia Rickard said on Monday.The combined company would have 46 per cent of the new car dealerships in the Newcastle/Hunter Valley region, the ACCC said. “We believe that local consumers generally don’t travel beyond the Newcastle/Hunter Valley region to buy new cars, and it is difficult to find out the final price for a car without visiting a dealership,” Ms Rickard said.But the ACCC said that the acquisition would be unlikely to substantially lessen competition for the supply of new cars in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane or nationally.Neither would it affect the wholesaling and retailing of used cars, the acquisition of car dealerships or the supply and acquisition of finance and insurance products.According to the ACCC, AP Eagers has six of 10 dealerships in Newcastle and AHG has three.AP Eagers has another five dealerships in Cardiff and Glendale and two in Maitland, while AHG has three in Cardiff and Glendale and five in Maitland.Overall, however, the two companies only have a total of 25 dealerships in the region – compared to 204 elsewhere in Australia.The ACCC said it was seeking information about whether a divestiture would address potential competition issues in the Newcastle/Hunter Valley region.The ACCC must make a final decision on the merger by July 26, unless AP Eagers agrees to extend this period.AP Eagers has been approached for comment.At 1127 AEST, AHG shares were down 2.9 per cent and AP Eagers shares were down 3.06 per cent.Originally published as Newcastle snag to AHG-AP Eagers merger Source link Finance News Australia .

'Amazon's push to use drones for deliveries is well known but a new patent that was applied for a few years ago has just become public. In the patent application unmanned aerial vehicles \'may image the property to generate surveillance images\'. While the promise of keeping us safer by letting us know when there are potential security issues on our properties, it all feels very Orwellian to me.\t\t\t\t\t More »'
