The July issue of MOTOR magazine drops a bombshell as we finally get behind the wheel of 2019’s most eagerly anticipated – and controversial – performance car, the Toyota GR Supra.
While the Supra is months away from its Australian debut, we get cracking on finding the best value for money performance cars you can buy right now with our annual Bang For Your Bucks event. This year’s edition will feature 10 new contenders going up against the 2018 champ, the Honda Civic Type R!
Moving on from down to earth stuff, and onto the metal of starry-eyed dreams, we fang the $2.26 million Adelaide-built Brabham BT62 on track and the $600k Porsche 911 Speedster on the road.
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, so you’ll get to see what MOTOR has to offer before anyone else.
