From million-dollar supercars to the best value performance cars, July has something for everyone

MOTOR Magazine July 2019 issue preview

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!
