Inside the Wheels Summer Edition, available this week

Wheels Australia has your holiday reading sorted with our bumper Summer Edition, available in stores Thursday, 8th December 2016.

Looking for some reading material for the Holiday season? We have your back!

Our bumper Summer Edition hits shelves this week, and has all the best automotive content you will need for your time off.

Find yourself a comfortable chair, an appropriate beverage, and settle in for some of the best features of the year.

Senior Journalist Nathan Ponchard has the in-depth analysis from Wheels’ hands-on drive of the 2018 Holden Commodore Prototype. No V8, no manual, and no rear-drive option. Will Aussies warm to this import-only Commo?

Plus, we have your traditional columns from the venerable Inside, John Carey, and Stephen Corby.

Polarising newspaper columnist gives us the most entertaining recap of the wild year that was 2016, covering all the best (and worst) news from the automotive world.

Our European correspondent takes the new Alfa Romeo Guilia QV for an epic mountain blast, tackling the five biggest Italian alpine passes in the M3-hunting Alfa Romeo.

Michael Stahl makes the trek to Japan to celebrate 55-years of the Wankel engine, and meets the fanatical fans which have made the Rotary a cult hero.

On home soil, we take the Porsche Cayman, BMW M2 Pure, and Ford Focus RS for a multi-day showdown. All have three-pedals and are absolute thrill machines. You’ll have to pick up the issue to see who we think is a worthy winner.

Our other mega showdown is between two Italian sportscars from opposite ends of the spectrum, with the Lamborghini LP580-2 battling the Fiat Abarth 124 Spider on the daunting Haunted Hills course. Which Italian comes out on top, and will our brave pilots survive unscathed?

We sent Stephen Corby on a mission to find the craziest garages from around Australia, and he came back with some doozies.

Finally, John Carey goes for a trip into the future, by travelling to the end of the world in the BMW i3.

All that, plus our regular load of the best news, reviews and insights.
