The Mazda MX-5 GT RS is a new enthusiast focussed variant of the famed sports car. It’s available in Roadster and RF forms and is an Australian market model. The updated Mazda MX-5 range will go on-sale in January, 2021.
The year 2001 was a long time ago now, but I still remember how good the Australian GT Production Car Championship was back then. The racing was great because of the number of different classes and manufacturers included.
GT3 racer Maro Engel has set a new overall lap record for production cars around the Nurburgring Nordschleife in a Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series, with an officially certified time of 6 minutes 43.616 seconds for the 20.6 kilometre-long track.
It’s been roughly two years since I purchased my 1990 Nissan 300ZX Z32. The following list mentions all the upgrades and maintenance items that have been done to the car in that time.
– Inspired by the i20 WRC rally car and joins the i30N and i30 Fastback N in Hyundai’s high performance line-up.
– Powered by a new generation 1.6-litre turbo GDi flat power engine with 150kW and 275Nm of torque, paired with a six-speed manual transmission.
Race results from the 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix.
– A 2.5 litre-five cylinder turbocharged engine from Audi, that produces 390kW (530hp) of power and 650Nm of torque, sending drive to the rear wheels. The injection valves, wastegate, intake system, exhaust system and software have been adapted.
– A 3.0 litre, six-cylinder in-line powerplant with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology, with the M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe having outputs of 353kw and 550Nm. In Competition specification, these outputs rise to 375kW and 650Nm.
The new Toyota GR Yaris will storm onto the local market as a single high specification model, with an introductory price of $39,950 – limited to the first 1,000 launch vehicles sold. Online and in-dealer reservations started on the 23 September 2020, with the car arriving in November 2020. A limited edition model designed for circuit racing is due next year, called the GR Yaris Rallye.
– The new MC20 (MC for Maserati Corse and 20 for 2020) is a worthy successor to the MC12.
