These elements have been carefully considered to capture the fluidic design philosophy of craftsmanship inspired by nature. Stand back and see it for yourself. You can be sure others will be doing the same. The i30 is turning heads, in more ways than one. When you see how far the re-invented i30 has come, you begin to realise how serious we are about offering premium as standard. From fuel efficiency to powerful performance, there is an engine to suit your needs. We won’t settle for anything less than 7 airbags and 5-star ANCAP rating. The i30 has been fitted with some of the most advanced safety features, and the 53 per cent ultra-high tensile steel chassis makes it the strongest i30 ever. Whether it’s for leisure, protection or safety, there’s a wide range of accessories to help you get the most from your i30. It also features a suite of intelligent technology you wouldn’t expect from a small car. The i30’s ultra-modern interior offer’s all of the amenities of next generation motoring whilst enjoying class leading practicality and ergonomics.

From the standard 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system to the quality of the materials and fit and finish the all new i30’s cabin is a place that you will be happy to call your second home.

BEAUT SCOOT

From its striking new look, LED lights all around including daytime running lights, panoramic sunroof, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the heated and ventilated seats and a whole lot more – every

detail of i30 is a statement of perfection and beauty. Highlight the best moments of your life with the brilliance of Hyundai’s stunning i30.

Your favourite hatch. Redesigned.

Welcome to the all new i30, representing the latest Hyundai has to offer in technology, safety, performance and design.

W

elcome to your ‘haveyour-cake-and-eat-it-too’ scooter, Honda’s neat little PCX 150. This is the choice for those who want it all. You can do big trips without making a dent on your petrol gauge. You can hit over 100kph on the motorway and not hear a struggle from the engine. You can even take a passenger and both your bags with its 25L under-seat

storage and new optional 35L top box. The secret behind this picture-perfect model is its stop-start engine system, a world-first in a scooter. This money-saving technology shuts down the engine on cue when its 14-inch wheels stop rotating, and instantly starts up again as soon as the throttle is given a twist. This gives a miraculous fuel economy. Doing any trip will soon be a nobrainer. Much like this beauty of a scooter.

Developed & tested across the world to ensure that you, the driver not only gets to your destination in safety and comfort but also with a smile on your face. The all new i30, your favourite hatchback. Redesigned.

Bond’s DB5 revisited T

he iconic Aston Martin DB5 is back, thanks to a unique collaboration between Aston Martin and EON Productions, the company that produces the James Bond films. Following the successful DB4 G.T. continuation project, a series of 25 Goldfinger DB5 continuation editions, will be created for customers by Aston Martin Works and EON Productions. The Goldfinger DB5 continuation will be based on James Bond’s legendary car from 1964 and built by Aston Martin Works at Newport Pagnell – the original home of the DB5. They will be authentic reproductions of the DB5 seen on screen, with some sympathetic modifications to ensure the highest levels of build quality and reliability. This authenticity will extend to include functioning gadgets such as revolving number plates and more, which were made famous in Goldfinger. The gadgets will be co-developed with Oscar®-winner Chris Corbould, special effects supervisor from the James Bond films. Officially sanctioned by Aston Martin and EON Productions, all the Goldfinger edition cars will be produced to one specification – Silver Birch paint – just like the original. The most instantly recognisable car of all-time, the DB5 made its first appearance in the third James Bond movie, Goldfinger, alongside Sean Connery as James Bond. Laden with gadgets and armaments installed by Q Branch, the secret agent’s Aston Martin became an instant hit with moviegoers. Since its seminal appearance in Goldfinger the DB5 has featured in a further six James Bond movies: Thunderball (1965), again with Connery; GoldenEye (1995) and Tomorrow Never

Dies (1997) with Pierce Brosnan and three appearances alongside Daniel Craig in Casino Royale (2006), Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015). James Bond and his DB5 have become two icons of popular culture and one of the most successful and enduring movie partnerships of all-time. Such was its popularity, the DB5’s movie debut even spawned a Corgi die-cast model, an astonishing 2.5m of which were sold in its first year of production (1965). No wonder an entire generation of children grew-up aspiring to own an Aston Martin. Now, thanks to the remarkable Goldfinger DB5 continuation project, a fortunate 25 of them can now own a faithful and authentic tribute to that original car. A further three cars will be built – one each for EON and Aston Martin, plus another to be auctioned for charity. Andy Palmer, President and Chief Executive Officer, Aston Martin, said: “The connection between Aston Martin and James Bond is something of which we are very proud and it is remarkable that the DB5 remains the definitive James Bond car after so many years. “To own an Aston Martin has long been an aspiration for James Bond fans, but to own a Silver Birch DB5, complete with gadgets and built to the highest standards in the very same factory as the original James Bond cars? “Well, that is surely the ultimate collectors’ fantasy. “The skilled craftspeople at Aston Martin Works and the expert special effects team from the James Bond films are about to make this fantasy real for 25 very lucky customers.” Each Goldfinger DB5 continuation car will be priced at £2.75m plus taxes. First deliveries to customers will commence in 2020.

Going coast to coast

T

he drive across the USA, from sea to shining sea, is one of the must do trips on many a driver’s bucket list. Whichever roads you choose, this trans-continental odyssey is sure to captivate you as it has for countless other travelers, writers and artists over the years. Throw in an element of competition and timing, along with an exquisite vintage Bentley motor car and, what you end up with, could be argued to be the journey of a lifetime. The third edition of the Endurance Rally Associations’ classic American road trip was acclaimed by some as the best yet and, along with another 32 crews, Bill and Julie Holroyd, in a William Medcalf prepared 1927 Bentley 4 ½, took up the challenge. Their route to the chequered flag was a typically tough one and it led them from the charming southern city of Charleston, on the hot and humid South Carolina coast, all the way to Seattle in the cold, clear Pacific Northwest. Covering an impressive 8000km over 22 days, the rally saw everything that only such an epic road trip could produce. Temperatures in the Deep South approached a fuel boiling 40°c, a tropical storm, Alberta, soaked everything and everybody to the bone, the 4302m altitude and thin air of the legendary Pikes Peak tested the fuel/air mixtures and the brakes and steering in equal measure. Bill himself admitted that the rally was very demanding. “One day was 750km long and I felt like I had undergone a full-body workout each day. “Thankfully, the car was faultless for the entire trip which is a credit to William and the team. “Credit must also go to my absolute rookie navigator who started the rally telling me to slow down for every corner but by the end of the trip was exhorting me to drive like a madman!”

E-Type Made good as new P

eople dream of escaping the rat race, but turning a dream into reality can be harder than it sounds. Late in 2016, father and son team Dominic and Marcus Holland managed it, quitting respective jobs in IT and digital marketing in the City of London to acquire a classic car restoration business, E-Type UK Ltd, in Kent. “We were opposite ends of the career timeline,” explained Dominic. “I was coming to the end of a job in the City, working in IT and Marcus was making his way in digital marketing in the City as well. “Over time, you become conscious of the fact that time itself is a scarce resource.” “We both loved cars and thought we’d do something we were passionate about rather than being a cog in a big corporate wheel, which had been my life so far and was going to be his.” At first, neither of the two men knew where to start but dismissed the initial idea of setting up shop in a shed and inspired by other businesses they had seen, started looking for a going concern to buy. E-Type UK Ltd appeared advertised simply as a “classic car business for sale”. A visit revealed a well-established firm with a large customer base that the pair both fell in love with, but also felt was ripe for development. “There was no stock, a small restoration team with only one full-time employee and four part-time, so there was plenty to do,” said Dominic. It was a substantial challenge, not least because neither of the two men came from an automotive or restoration background – but what they did have was considerable experience in customer relations.

They could not have picked a trickier subject, since the E-Type was highly sophisticated for its day, with fully independent suspension and exotic, aircraft-like construction. Three series of E-Type were built between 1961 and 1975. The first was powered first by a 3.8-litre, six-cylinder engine which was later replaced by a more driveable 4.2-litre version. A slightly more practical, if uncomfortably styled, 2+2 also joined the family, while the final Series 3 E-Type was powered by a 5.3-litre V12 engine. One of the challenges all restorers of classic cars face is managing expectations but, said Dominic, “we have always had the desire to do whatever it takes to get people what they want”. It’s a useful mindset, because however good the condition, classic cars are notoriously fickle in their ways and, by modern standards, not big on reliability. “Customers new to classics are sometimes unprepared for what goes with classic car ownership,” said Marcus. “As people have become accustomed to modern cars that are completely reliable, we sometimes have to explain that a component designed in the 1960s is still just that.” The workshop staff now total 11, the longest serving of whom has been with the business for eight years. The team now undertakes everything from maintenance to full-blown, nut and bolt restorations. “We try to understand what a customer wants to achieve and then deliver a car that meets their expectations,” said Marcus. For instance, an immaculate, show-winning “concours” car rebuilt to the original factory specification is not necessarily

ideal for driving to the south of France and in that case, added Marcus, “you would probably want a hybrid, something built to a very high standard but with some upgrades”. While purists might cringe at the thought of any modifications to an E-Type Jaguar, improvements can be desirable, such as upgraded front disc brakes to replace originals, which were no match for the Jaguar’s performance. Even in 1961, the top speed of a 3.8-litre E-Type was quoted by the factory at 150mph and acceleration from standstill to 60mph was a whisker over seven seconds. Other modifications include fuel-injection for Series 3 5.3-litre V12 engines originally fitted with four carburettors which could be unpredictable when hot. Stainless steel exhaust systems resist corrosion indefinitely and enhance the unmistakable E-Type sound. The E-Type’s world debut took place at the Geneva motor show in 1961 after the display car was driven flat-out from Coventry to Switzerland by Jaguar’s renowned test driver Norman Dewis, famously arriving only 20 minutes before the reveal was due to take place. Such stories are the stuff of legend and because of that, together with the E-Type’s beauty and character, their value has soared. Ten years ago it was possible to by a useable 4.2-litre Coupé for about £15,000 ($28,000). Now, a fully restored example from E-Type UK will cost about £200,000 ($385,000). That said, as far as classic car investments go, this one is gold plated. “Some customers simply ask for a driveable car,” said E-Type UK managing

www.guardianonline.co.nz

director Marcus Holland – and the company’s own Series 3 V12 E-Type is a perfect example of that. It has been meticulously restored from scratch, with upgrades including AP Racing disc brakes, fuel-injection and unseen details such as alloy radiators with modern electric fans to keep the big engine cool. Grasping the ignition key brings a kind of anticipation lost to owners of most modern cars, and hairs stand to attention on the back of the neck as the V12 engine bursts into life and settles into a civilised purr. The driver’s seat is high and for tall people it pays to snuggle down a little to look out over the long nose beneath the windscreen frame. The upgraded five-speed gearbox is notchy and direct but the engine is so flexible the E-Type moves away with just a murmur, the accelerator pedal almost untouched. We set off along main roads to a nearby town in blistering summer heat; the ride is compliant and comfortable and long journeys would be no hardship in this beautiful car. The steering is direct, too, while the modern brakes are powerful with a solid feel. Throttle response is instantaneous, the 277bhp engine delivering a healthy punch and an intoxicating soundtrack that has to be worth at least half of the Jaguar’s tall price tag. We negotiate the town with its weekday traffic, but the engine doesn’t miss a beat, then reluctantly return to base, reflecting on the fact that this E-type provides an experience that is easily as good as, if not better than, a totally original Series 3 car.

Brabus lights up the G N

ew Mercedes G-Class deliveries have started in some European and American markets, just in time for early customers to start tearing their new SUV apart with help from German-based tuning house Brabus. The Mercedes specialists have just launched a ‘refinement programme’ for the latest evolution of the off-road 4x4, boasting exclusive Brabus design parts, bigger wheels and, of course, more power for the Mercedes-Benz G 500. Like Brabus’ take on the X-Class ute, the G 500 package features the company’s PowerXtra performance upgrade, boosting the four-litre twin-turbo V8’s output by 58kW and 100Nm of torque. In standard Mercedes trim, the engine produces 310kW and 610Nm. But thanks to the Brabus performance kit – a plug-and-play control module replacement – the new Brabustuned G 500 performance is increased to 368kW (500 hp) at 5600 rpm and peak torque of 710Nm constantly between 2250 and 4250 rpm. The increase in oomph is thanks to increased boost pressure and new mapping for injection and ignition, with the new tune tested in the lab and onand off-road. The Brabus G 500 sprints from rest to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds (0.2 faster than stock) and the top speed remains electronically limited to 210 km/h. The engine note is also upgraded with a specially developed stainless sport exhaust system with two chrome tailpipes exiting on each side of the SUV. Brabus say the new pipes offers an optimal mix of sound, performance and longevity. There’s also a Coming Home mode that closes active flaps in the exhaust, keeping

your neighbours happy if you’re an early riser. In the body department, Brabus fit a new front fascia attachment to give the production bumper a more striking profile and reduce front-axle lift at high speeds. The facelift also includes a new tailor-made radiator grille

that lights up in blue when the driver unlocks the car. The new G-Class also features auxiliary headlamps above the windshield. This naked-carbon module on the roof, available with a high-gloss or matte surface finish, is fitted with two powerful lights that act as flashers or, using the high beams, two sets of high-performance LEDs each for off-roading at night. At the back, a roof-mounted wing (or airfoil as Brabus calls it) ensures this G-

Class will never be mistaken for a stock model. A hood scoop made from carbon fibers is also added, which not only lends the GClass an even more characteristic profile, but also optimises the exchange of cool and hot air in the engine bay. And tailor-made Monoblock wheels in various designs and sizes – 20 to 23 inch – complete the G-Class’ external transformation. Inside, you can have the G-Class seats and interior finished in any fabric or col-

our you like thanks the the company’s in-house upholstery shop, although they’d prefer you pick from the finest Mastik leather and Alcantara. Exclusive accessories such as aluminum pedals and scuff plates with backlit logo for the passenger cabin and the trunk can also be specified, along with a range of precious-wood components and carbonfibre trim pieces. Like all Brabus packages, the new performance upgrade comes with the threeyear or 100,000-km tuning Warranty. If that’s not enough to quench your thirst, we expect to see a package released for the top-spec Mercedes-AMG G63 soon too.

Sneak preview of the new Corolla

D

riving through Auckland’s Great North Road as it morphs into K Road is good fun for petrol-heads young and old alike. The smorgasbord of new car dealerships is a sight to behold, and on more than a few occasions it’s been the scene of a great four-wheeled ‘first sighting’. I expected to see one new car along the busy stretch – that car being the Tesla Model 3. What I didn’t expect was to also spot the new Toyota Corolla. We’ve been giving the new Corolla plenty of props of late, given its integral role in Toyota’s larger overarching plan of making the brand and its products less of a bore. So having spotted two proudly on display at Auckland City Toyota, curiosity led to a brief visit. One thing led to another, and we were handed the keys to the top-of-the-range Corolla ZR for the morning. The ZR comes loaded with plenty of tech and trim changes. It sports a deeper bodykit and 18-inch wheels on the outside, and heads-up display, a JBL sound system, and ultra comfy heated suede sports seats on the inside. That’s on top of a heap of standard

kit that includes an 8.0-inch infotainment system as well as a stack of safety kit. That safety tech deserves a bit of attention because it’s really quite impressive. Adaptive cruise control that slows the car all the way to 0km/h, lane-tracing assist, vehicle sway warning, autonomous emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and automatic high beam are all standard across the range. Engines? Well, the SX and ZR models share the same naturally aspirated 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine with 125kW and 200Nm to its name. Humble figures on first reading, but that’s 21 per cent more power and 15 per cent more torque than the outgoing 1.8-litre. All from a more compact unit, despite the additional 200cc of capacity. There’s also a Hybrid variant, which comes equipped with a 72kW 1.8-litre petrol engine paired with a supporting hybrid system. But most people considering a Corolla

probably place the engine changes or safety changes second or third on the totem pole of importance, at best. The big story here is how the Corolla looks, inside and out. Interior-wise things are bolted well together, much like the last Corolla’s interior. The difference is that material quality has improved across the board. Soft touch materials don’t just adorn major touch points, but they also find home all over the

dashboard and door cards. The supporting design is also of the more mature variety, with contrast stitching in this ZR model complimenting a few well-weighted licks of silver accenting. And the exterior styling? Well, a shrinking violet the new Corolla certainly is not – particularly in ZR trim. You’ll like it or loath it, much like a lot of the Japanese brand’s other current designs. But we tend to think that it’s one of the most ambitiously styled Corollas since the ‘90s. Sharp edges and defined character lines make it something that not only stands out in its own segment, but also stands on its own two legs. The leering headlights wrap around the nose while feeding into the gaping honeycomb grill, and out back the boot-lid looks like an unfolded piece of origami paper. The new Corolla will launch next month. Pricing is also still to be confirmed, although it’s expected that this range topping ZR will slot in at a similar price as its predecessor in the high $30k-bracket.
