MOTOR Magazine March 2019 issue preview

MOTOR Magazine March 2019 issue preview news

Premcar’s Holy Grail V8 Falcon tested, a passenger ride with Tom Kristensen, and 24 hours with a Bugatti Chiron, all in March’s MOTOR

March is nothing short of a power trip for MOTOR!

If you thought that the FG X Falcon wasn’t a fitting enough send-off, we strap ourselves into Premcar’s 483kW equipped Falcon Holy Grail that promises to be Ford’s forbidden modern GT-HO. 

Then we attempt to tame Tickford’s 530kW supercharged Mustang, spend a whole 24 hours in the 1103kW Bugatti Chiron, and roll-out the red carpet for a very special 449kW visitor to the MOTOR Garage.

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.

Enjoy!

PREMCAR’S HOLY GRAIL

The architects behind the Miami V8 engine show us what the FG X Falcon could have really been with the Premcar Holy Grail. So we put the fruit of their labour to the test on the road and on the strip.

24 HOURS IN A BUGATTI CHIRON

What is it like to be given the keys to Bugatti’s 1103kW quad-turbo big daddy for a whole day? How about doing 0-100km/h in 2.5 seconds at a whim, hitting 365km/h on the autobahn, and living with $200 fuel bills. There's no better way to spend 24 hours.

RUBBER STAMP: TRACK TYRE TEST

Tyres can make or break a car’s performance, to show you what we mean we pelt around Winton on three very different tyres to reveal the difference they make on lap times.

DANGER ZONE: 2019 RENAULT MEGANE RS vs VOLKSWAGEN GOLF GTI
