Driving impression: BMW M3 and M4
The new BMW M3 and its M4 twin have launched and with this, comes a new era of turbocharging. No one knew what the new M3 (and M4) would be like, but we all suspected it would impress. Did it...

Driving impression: Ferrari LaFerrari
The Enzo's successor is finally here. LaFerrari costs R18 million and has 700+ kW from a hybrid V12. So, just how good is it...

Group bike test
The bikers in the team took a BMW F 700 GS, an F 800 GS Adventure and an R 1200 GS Adventure on a multiterrain trip to test their mettle.

Engines of our time
We take a look at the iconic V12 engine that made the cat purr and growl.

How to jumpstart a car
Most of us have been in a situation where we've had to jumpstart a car. We explain how to do it properly.
