A quick look at the pages of this month’s issue of Australia’s best fast car magazine

This month, MOTOR has sated our hunger for supercharged muscle by pitting two hi-po tyre-fryers against each other!

But even if that’s not your bag, we’ve got plenty more where that came from. Here’s a look at the new issue of MOTOR, on sale now.

Oh, and we’ll let you know who took out this years coveted Bang For Your Bucks title!

SUPERCHARGED | WALKINSHAW W557 vs HERROD MUSTANG GT: Got a craving for hundreds of killowatts at the disposal of your right foot, and the option of either a V8 Mustang tuned by Herrod or a HSV GTS fettled by Walkinshaw? Let’s see who comes out on top.


RED DEVIL | HONDA CIVIC TYPE R DRIVEN: With the much anticipated hot-hatch joining the fight at a very competitive stage, will the now slightly grown-up legendary red ‘R’ badge impress us? Or will it leave us regretting the flight to German to drive one?

Honda-Civic-Type-R-first-drive.jpgTHE ITALIAN JOB | GIULIA QV vs C63 S vs M3 COMPETTION: The Germans now have a new contender to battle for the ultimate sedan supremacy. The arrival of the alpha-Alfa will surely shake things up, but can it topple the establishment?

Italian-Job-September-Issue.jpgTRACK ATTACK | BANG FOR YOUR BUCKS $50K-$100K AND 2017 WINNER: Another eight cars line up to fight for the right to be our BFYB champ this year, with the stakes now set above the $50K mark. With a V8 ute, the biggest Mini ever, and even a half-century-old sportscar in the mix, the fight is on for the BFYB crown.

BFYB-September-issue.jpgFIRST FANGS | M4 CS; DODGE DEMON; OCTAVIA RS245; BENTLEY CONTINENTAL GT; AND MORE: As ever, MOTOR gets behind the wheel of high-performance carriages ranging from the humble i30 SR to the wildly outlandish Dodge Challenger Demon. Want to know if a Toyota 86 Limited Edition is worth the extra cash? This is the place to find out.

First FangTHE CAPTAIN | ROGER PENSKE INTERVIEW: We sit down with one of the ‘big fish’ of motorsport, racing legend Roger Penske, to discover how he’s become so good at tackling established hierarchies and dominating local series… Namely, ‘the V8s’.

ROGER PENSKE INTERVIEWTHE GARAGE | TOYOTA 86; BMW M140i: We’re on the case when it comes to the updated 86, bringing you the details of what has changed with the recent refresh, plus, we’re handed the keys to BMW’s super-hot-hatch to see just how good it is to live with one of our top BFYB contenders, the M140i – now with LSD!


THE GARAGE | BMW M140iAND MORE: MOTOR is still bringing you the best in exclusive news, motoring market info, and tech-talk to keep you in the loop with what’s going on in our world of all (four-wheeled, usually) things fast.
