    Jaguar has finally confirmed the new XF Sportbrake, revealing the first official image in the process. The XF Sportbrake will join the XF sedan in the British automaker's line-up later this year, and is expected to rival the likes of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate and BMW 5 Series Touring (although, like these two German wagons, it seems unlikely the new Jaguar will be offered locally). While the XF Sportbrake is expected to mirror the styling of the sedan with which it will share its al…

    The facelifted Volkswagen Amarok has finally arrived in South Africa, with a new V6 engine doing duty at the very summit of the local line-up. Thing is, the range-topper is not exactly cheap, even if VW SA managed to slice a few rands off the indicative pricing we learned a couple of months before the local launch. So, we thought it prudent to take another look at the most expensive double-cab bakkies currently available on the South African market, as the list has changed somewhat over th…

    You've heard of McLaren's MSO division, right? You know, the one that creates limited edition and one-off models? Well, it seems Mitsubishi Motors in the UK has had a similar idea, launching its new Special Vehicle Projects (SVP) programme with a blinged-up Triton bakkie.

Its first…
