MOTOR Magazine March 2018 issue preview

New Mégane RS driven, the Supra scoop, and 720S v NSX in Tokyo!

Here’s your first look at the new issue of MOTOR Magazine!

You might already have yours if you’re a subscriber, but if you aren’t you can become one at MagShop, subscribe digitally on Zinio (where you can also buy individual issues) , or you can find issues of MOTOR in newsagents and stores around Australia.

Want to know what you’ll get in the March issue? Let’s get started…

RETURN SERVE – THE NEW MÉGANE RS: Renault has brought its hot hatch hero back to fight for the crown. Is it better than everything else available? We find out.

ALL PAW WAR – FOCUS RS v GOLF R v WRX STI: Three AWD legends go head to head to sort out which is the best of the best.

BASIC INSTINCT – PORSCHE 911 GT3 TOURING & PORSCHE 911 CARERRA T: They might look similar, but the T and Touring approach the 911 from different angles.

CHEAP THRILLS – MINI HOT HATCHES: We take Suzuki’s new Swift Sport out for a blast, while Euro correspondent Matt Saunders drives the new Polo GTI.

STREET FIGHTERS – MCLAREN 720S v HONDA NSX: Honda and McLaren… this is awkward. From Tokyo to the touge, these two supercars tackle the NSX’s home turf.

ADVANTAGE ASTON – ASTON MARTIN VANTAGE V8: A deep-dive into the reasons why Aston Martin’s new Vantage V8 should make Jaguar very, very scared.

BLACK BEAUTY – JPS BMW 635CSi: Uncorking Jim Richards’ black-and-gold monster from Australia’s Group C era… at Silverstone.

HEAVY ARTILLERY – AUDI RS6 AVANT TUNED BY BWA: The RS6’s twin-turbo V8 never needed more power, but that’s exactly what BWA has gone and done.

FIRST DRIVES: We find ourselves in the driver’s seat (not all at once) of Ferrari’s California replacement, the Portofino, plus we get to grips with the new Holden Commodore. Can ZB trump VF?

AND MORE: From Our Garage to Geek Speak, we bring back all of MOTOR’s staple ingredients on last time before we mix it all up, throw in some new bits, and give you what we’ve been working on for quite some time… the all-new MOTOR Magazine.
