Back to the Future-themed V8 Supercar for Gold Coast 600

The No. 6 V8 Supercar is going to look a little different when it hits the streets of Surfers Paradise in Australia for this weekend’s Gold Coast 600, Prodrive Racing turning it into a ‘time machine’ in honour of the iconic film franchise Back to the Future.

Wednesday 21 October, 2015 is the date that Doc and Marty McFly arrive in the future in the second film of the trilogy, and to mark the date Prodrive have taken the wraps off a Ford V8 Supercar that has been suitably modified to mimic the DeLorean that is the star of the movie.

Complete with gull-wing doors, flux capacitor, ‘Mr Fusion’ device and DeLorean-esque stainless steel paintwork, the machine will also ditch its Pepsi Max backing for the weekend to run in the colours of ‘Pepsi Perfect’, the cola brand that appears in the film.

The team revealed the machine in a short film starring drivers Mark Winterbottom and Chaz Mostert, paying tribute to the trilogy.

“This is without doubt one of the best activations I’ve seen in nearly 30 years in the motorsport industry,” Tim Edwards, Prodrive team principal, said.

“The lengths the entire team have gone to in order to prepare the car are just fantastic. Every department has played some role and the finished product looks amazing on the big screen and in the flesh.”

The project kept Prodrive’s fabrication shop busy, the modifying the car’s standard doors into gas-powered gull-wing doors.

“We were surprised when we were asked to turn our Ford V8 Supercar into a DeLorean time machine but once we worked out what we needed to achieve, it became a real passion project for everyone involved in preparing the car,” Ben Cockerell, leader of the team’s fabrication shop, said.

“Modifying and making the gull-wing doors without changing the car was a big challenge. Making them look like they were actually part of the car was the hardest part so I hope our fans and fans of the movie appreciate how much effort has gone into this car.”

While all the time-machine hardware is strictly for the show car, the real No. 6 Pepsi Perfect Ford Falcon will hit the track in the hands of Cameron Waters and supersub Russell Ingall for practice on Friday.

Australian police appear to have a very expensive, very fast supercar

Australian police appear to have a very expensive, very fast supercar

The New South Wales police force may have watched The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift one too many times.

On Friday, the Instagram account of THE-LOWDOWN.com, an automotive-focused website, posted a photo of a pretty fancy sports car marked with police livery sitting on the back of a truck. The caption? Simply, “Game over.”

Spotted by news.com.au journalist Harry Tucker, who identified it as a McLaren 650S, the highly-powerful British car is apparently worth around A$450,000.

In his driving test for The Verge, Chris Ziegler reported the devastating experience of running over a pothole in another low-slung McLaren 650S. “The entire car shuddered with a smack that woke me more effectively than the La Colombe coffee I’d just finished,” he wrote. “It echoed in my brain for the next several hours. I can still hear it. No one wants to hear that sound; it’s the sound of sadness.”

Sadly, it became apparent there will be no lucky coppers cruising the streets in this thing. NSW Police have confirmed it’s only a sponsored vehicle that will not be in operation.

McDonalds use a Lamborghini and Ferrari to deliver meals

McDonalds use a Lamborghini and Ferrari to deliver meals

Forget the zippy motorbikes to get the delivery of burgers and fries to arrive on your doorstep as fast as possible – McDonald’s fast food giant has pulled out the big guns with flashy sports cars.

A white Lamborghini and red Ferrari were parked outside the South Melbourne outlet which was one of the first suburbs to trial the home delivery service back in July.

The gleaming cars attracted a lot of attention from impressed customers who were taking photos on their phones of the new high-end delivery vehicles.

The extravagant delivery service comes as the global net income of the major food supplier has recorded a profit drop of 30 per cent in the last quarter ending September 30.

Meanwhile, 20 restaurants throughout Brisbane will join the home delivery trial during November and December.

There are least seven Sydney outlets and three stores in Melbourne that have already jumped on board the online delivery service trial.

Australia’s First Supercar

Australia's First Supercar

Australia’s very own supercar, the Joss JP1, is taking another run at the world stage.

With a mid- mounted all-alloy V8, a claimed top speed of around 340 km/h (211 mph), and all of the current technical innovations expected in a modern day supercar, the Joss JP1 is the culmination of years of design and development work aimed squarely at producing a world-beating exotic machine.

Despite all of this engineering work, though, the Australian design regulations are amongst the toughest and most intractable in the world, and would take more money and time to comply with than is reasonably available to a boutique auto maker. The upshot of which means that the first five vehicles built and sold by Joss will only be available as track-day cars.

No official date has been given for a possible launch or impending production. Though, based on the proposed timeline and all going to plan, it would appear that it will be somewhere around two years by the time the first new prototype is produced.

Underworld Gangster Mick Gatto Reviews Mercedes-Benz’s G63 AMG

Underworld Gangster Mick Gatto reviews Mercedes-Benz’s G63 AMG

Mick Gatto is best known in Australia for surviving Melbourne’s gangland wars and beating a murder rap.

That’s why the underworld figure turned corporate “mediator’’ was the perfect person to take a few test laps in a new pimped-up, heavy-hitting Mercedes-Benz SUV favoured by mobsters and gangsta rappers alike.

In his review for Wheels magazine, Gatto reveals himself to be a bit of a speedster, admiring the G63 AMG’s “zing” and running a few red-lights with the assurance: “Yep, that was a bit illegal, but not to worry.’’

A former boxer and still a heavyweight in every sense of the word, Gatto abhors sports cars, saying that driving a Ferrari made him feel like a crab “driving a lawnmower”, and complains even the G63 “doesn’t feel all that roomy inside.”

“We figured who better to review a gangster car than a real-life gangster,” said Wheels editor Glenn Butler, “It’s a brute of a car, perhaps not as refined as the rest of Mercedes-Benz’s range.”

The interview is repeatedly interrupted by wellwishers keen to pay their respects to Gatto, who says he is often recognised on the street since the Underbelly TV series lifted his profile.

“I never turn down an autograph or a photo,” Gatto said. “As my lawyer said: ‘You never know when they might be on a jury.’ ”
