The Alfa Romeo Brera is most certainly one of the nicest looking motor vehicles sold in Australia in the last couple of decades.

The pick of the two models is the V6 all-wheel-drive Manual Brera with it’s Holden-sourced engine block that received an extensive over-haul from the Alfa Romeo design team.

SUZUKI JIMNY: This off-roader is priced to sell

The long awaited Suzuki Jimny has returned to Australian and the new model fully embodies the core character of the off-roader that has been around for almost 50 years.

Suzuki has certainly given the value-for-money playing card very careful consideration and the price-point starting price of $23,990 plus on-roads for the manual will be very well received by buyers across Australia.

Ford Cortina GT500
A car seldom remembered or even seen on our roads these days is the Ford Cortina GT500 which was the brainchild of Harry Firth.

The donor car for the GT500 was the Ford Cortina GT 1500 which was modified into a race car by Harry and his team.



The Cortina GT500 was built for Ford Australia to satisfy homologation rules that then to allowed it to race in the Armstrong 500 at Bathurst which it won in 1965 in a winning time of 7 hours, 16 minutes and 45 seconds.
