  • McLaren Super Series goes Next Level: 720s Australian Launch

    EFTM’s good friend Greg Rust attended the Australian launch of the new 720S in Melbourne and was seriously in awe of the company’s latest offering. Since the debut of its first car, the MP4-12C, back in 2011 many reviewers talked about how impressive McLaren’s road cars were but how...
  • First Drive: BMW 530e – A Plug-in Hybrid Luxury car

    What form of technology will help save the world from cars, who knows? Will it be electric battery only cars, tried and trusted hybrids, hydrogen fuel cell driven cars or plug-in hybrids to name a few. Personally, it seems to me battery power is where we’re headed. But some...
  • Now THATS a Supercar: Holden’s 2019 Commodore Supercar revealed

    There’s no shying away from my love for the modern Volvo.  The Stunning S90 luxury sedan stole the show for us last year, taking out our Best Car award for 2016, so when the opportunity to sample the Cross Country wagon variant presented itself, we grabbed the keys! As...
  • Built Ford Tough, The Ranger Review

    My dad grew up in a different country and worked on a farm from a young age. Manual labour was the tool of trade and the donkey was the animal to keep things moving. As years went on, trucks would take the largest loads and slowly the humble ute...

    Talk about having the cash to throw around, the Shannons Sydney Autumn Auction set new records for a bunch of items that will have your eyes watering. A little bit close to my heart, a simple number plate went for $750,000.  Number 29 it was – now my dad...
