MOTOR Magazine January 2019 issue preview

By MOTOR Staff, 11 Jan 2019 News

MOTOR Magazine January 2019 issue preview update

First mag for the year packs a Godzilla-sized punch

New Year, more MOTOR.

Our first issue of the year is on sale now, and that means you can pick up a shiny new magazine full of high-performance heroes and the cars we’ve tested to help you decide what to buy.

You can find our gorgeous mags at retailers around Australia. Or you can subscribe and save yourself some cash, there’s even a digital subscription.

Subscribers often receive their mags earlier, depending on the postal system, so you’ll get to see what MOTOR has to offer before anyone else.

Or, if you want to give us feedback and see behind the scenes, you can follow us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram where we interact with our followers regularly.

GODZILLA AWAKENS – Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign
Even as 50th Birthday presents go, $1.5 million is steep. This is the amazing story behind the ultimate version of the R35 GT-R.

BLOOD LINES – Nissan’s Skyline GT-R Dynasty
To understand the significance of the GT-R50, you need to know where it’s come from. We drive three cars that forged the GT-R legend.

Classic MOTOR: Skyline showdown - R32 v R33 v R34 v R35

FREE BREATHERS – Lamborghini Aventador SVJ vs Ferrari 812 Superfast
Forget it’s an endangered species with us for a moment. The big bore atmo V12 has never been as good as this. We take to the Italian countryside to name the ultimate N/A bent 12.

MIDDLE CHILD – Mercedes-AMG A35 driven
If the A250 is too soft and the A45 is too hardcore for you, Mercedes has found the ‘Goldilocks Zone’ with the new 225kW A35 hot hatch.

POLO PLAY – VW Polo GTI vs Subaru BRZ tS vs Mazda MX-5 2.0
VW’s new Polo GTI must knock off a coupe and a convertible if it’s to return as the king of affordable fun.

MOTOR comparison: BRZ tS v MX-5 RF Limited Edition v 86 Performance Pack

CALIFORNIA DREAMS – Porsche at the Petersen Museum
From rare road cars to priceless racers, the Petersen Museum in LA celebrates Porsche in style.

AND THE USUALS – First Drives, MOTOR Garage, Cool Kit, New vs Used and more

This month we’ve steered no less than nine other cars for our regular review section, including the new Mégane RS Trophy and the Aventador S Roadster (two Lambo V12s in one issue!).

We also check in on Newman’s i30 N, dive into what the WLTP means for new performance cars, and list the things we really wanted for Christmas.

WhichCar explains: Will WLTP end fantasy fuel economy figures?
