It’s not a new fire levy, it’s a fairer fire levy. On 1 July 2013, as recommended by the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission, the Victorian Government is replacing the old fire services levy with a fairer system. Rather than being added to insurance premiums, the levy will now be collected with council rates. This means all property owners contribute a fair share to the Country Fire Authority or the Metropolitan Fire Brigade. The levy is a fixed charge of $100 for residential properties and $200 for non-residential properties, plus a variable charge based on the property’s capital improved value. All funds will go towards supporting Victoria’s fire services. GST and stamp duty charged on the old levy have been removed and, for the first time, eligible pensioners and veterans will receive a $50 concession. These reforms will save households and business around $100 million a year. F•S•A/DPC0018

Test car \ Land Rover Australia

Motoring \ ron hammerton is at home in the rangie

M

any new vehicles are trumpeted as game-changers, but few are. When Britain’s original Range Rover arrived on the scene in 1970, it truly shook the status quo, introducing an unprecedented blend of luxury, road manners and supreme off-road capability. I will never forget my introduction to this SUV icon, from the passenger seat of a Rangie driven by a Land Rover staffer who intentionally drove head-on over a high kerb. Fearing the front suspension would be ripped out by the roots, I braced for a huge bang, only to be amazed by a muted thump as the big beast took the obstacle without a hair out of place. It was a revelation. Four decades on, the new fourth-generation Range Rover from this British brand, now Indian-owned, still sets the pace as one of the few luxury four-wheel-drives capable of supple mountain-goat feats while looking the part in the Flemington car park at the spring carnival. The new Range Rover gets an evolutionary styling update, but the biggest change is under the skin, with all-aluminium construction. This helps rid the vehicle of a staggering 420 kilograms of unwanted fat, although it still weighs north of two tonnes. The big question is whether this form of car-like construction – called a monocoque – can deliver the same hard-core performance, on road and off. The Range Rover has lost none of its on-bitumen performance, riding and cornering with a belligerence that belies its bulk and tall stance, thanks to a large extent to its active air suspension that works overtime to keep it floating on an even keel. Whopping 21-inch wheels help, too. The weight savings deliver improvements in acceleration and fuel economy, with the test car – a high-end supercharged V8 Vogue SE – gliding from zero to 100km/h in a sporty 5.4 seconds. Thirst has been chopped 9 per cent but, at 13.8 litres per 100 kilometres, the force-fed 5.0-litre petrol Range Rover’s fuel economy is not for the environmental warrior. In town, the glug-glugging of fuel soars to more than 20L/100km, hence most buyers will opt for diesel variants – the 3.0-litre TDV6 (7.5L/100km) or stump-ripping 4.4-litre SDV8 (8.7L/100km).

Sadly, an old-style rainy week in Melbourne prevented us from stretching the Range Rover’s talents in the bush. We suspect the vehicle could handle it, but ploughing up sodden bush tracks is environmental vandalism. We are assured that the latest model has lost none of its long-legged climbing ability using its low-range gearing, massive wheel travel, deep well of torque and, on the test car, active rear differential. It can even wade through 900mm of water. As before, the Range Rover’s suspension can be raised or lowered with the twist of a dial to meet conditions. Of course, most Range Rovers spend their days wading through commuter traffic, with the driver seated high above the riff-raff, cosseted behind laminated acoustic glass range rover vogue se What is it? Four-wheel-drive luxury SUV What’s in it? Supercharged 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine. Power: 375kW. 0-100km/h: 5.4 sec is it thirsty? 13.8 litres per 100 kilometres – 2.5 stars price

in sumptuous captain’s chairs that have 18-way electrical adjustment. And now we are getting to the crux of why well-heeled buyers shell out such a big wad of cash. This is extremely comfortable. The decor is a mix of old English drawing room and up-to-the-minute gizmos. For example, the heated steering wheel was cloaked in optional ($980) traditional wood and leather. The new eight-speed automatic transmission, a German-made ZF unit shared with sister company Jaguar and other car-makers such as BMW, offers two more gears than the previous generation and is controlled by a round selector knob that pops out of the console. A big sat-nav screen dominates a dash swathed in leather. Above it, the windscreen has fine wires embedded in it – the anti-icing and de-fogging system for snow country. In the limo-style back seat, passengers who tire of watching the countryside rushing past can switch to the touch-control TV screens, complete with headphones, embedded in each of the front headrests. Behind the split-fold seats, a capacious luggage compartment swallows a large lump of cargo, making maximum use of the extra stretch in the car’s overall length. The two-piece rear hatch has an upper door that rises and lowers majestically at the push of a button, and a lower tailgate that swings down to transform into a convenient carpeted seat at the polo or picnic table at the cup. Apart from three engine choices, the new Range Rover comes in four equipment levels – HSE, Vogue, Vogue SE and Autobiography – with prices starting at $168,900 (plus on-road costs) for the V6 diesel HSE and rising to $240,100 for the supercharged V8 petrol Autobiography. Oddly, only the Autobiography gets auto-braking adaptive cruise control as standard, with buyers of other levels having to fork out $3240 for the privilege. But all Range Rover owners can bask in the glow of the convenient “puddle lights” that don’t merely light the way into the cabin at night, but also spell out “Range Rover” on the ground. Just in case you forget what you paid for. \ rhammerton@theweeklyreview.com.au AUGUST 21, 2013 \ The weekly review 17


Man of steel \ ANDREW McUTCHEN’s DiviNE MovEMENTs

O

nce, “What are you wearing?” was the standard query. But with the popularity of mechanical watches, there’s a second question: “Nice watch, is it an in-house movement?” This refers to whether the movement is made by the maison, or a generic one. Here are three in-house movements to make that awkward moment go away. “Why yes, yes it is … ” \ amcutchen@theweeklyreviewcom.au

the manual

There are two things to love about this 2013 edition of the Carrera, featuring the in-house 1887 calibre. One, the horizontal subdials. Two, the “bullhead”-style case with angled dial. It places the crown and chronograph pushers at the top of the case, giving it the appearance of the two-part stopwatches Jack Heuer supplied to pro-racing circuits. “I’m not a watch man, I’m a product man,” Jack told The Weekly Review at the Carrera’s 50th birthday party in Geneva. “But as a product, this watch is a classic.”

Breitling \ Breitling for Bentley B06 Chronograph

(SUPPLIED)

2003 was a big year for Bentley. The car manufacturer won the Le Mans 24-hour race and decided to partner with Breitling on a range of watches. The masculine 49-millimetre case has a bezel motif that emulates a Bentley grill and an oscillating weight inspired by Bentley wheel rims. The Bentley B06 movement is distinguished by its “30-second chronograph” system. Available in steel or red gold, with steel or crocodile leather bracelet.

rolex \ oyster perpetUal CosMograph Daytona

Platinum is said to be 30 times more expensive than gold. The cachet in the story of Rolex’s iconic Daytona model would be worth even more. This version of the legendary chronograph released in 1963 and made famous by Paul Newman – he wore one continuously from 1972 until his death in 2008 – is equipped with a chestnut-brown monobloc Cerachrom bezel in ceramic and an ice-blue dial that is like air-conditioning for the eye. Crisp, classic and driven by an in-house 4130 self-winding mechanical chronograph movement.

taking it to the market - the fine art of presentation living in a consumer-based society, australians are used to having products or services presented in a professional and concise manner - whether it be on tV, radio or an ad in a glossy magazine. an endless array of consumer products have soared or soured based on the strength of their marketing campaigns. and this same rule applies to property. when i started in real estate, things were a bit different - a few lines in the real estate classifieds, a small ad in the local paper and brochures with a sketch of the home (remember those!). today, it’s a whole new ball game - and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Buyers are treated with an amazing array of online tools to assist in locating, researching and comparing properties in their suburb, city or literally anywhere in the world. this is why the marketing of your most precious asset is so crucial. and it’s not simply about getting the most buyers through your HOCKINGSTUART.COM.AU

home - it’s about getting the most suitable buyers through your home! Remember, first impressions count. Potential buyers will first see your home online, in a local paper or real estate agent’s windows. so it’s important your home stands out from the crowd. Depending on the property, there are a number of industry professionals we call on to assist in putting together the most appropriate marketing campaign. if a home is vacant, we may suggest having it furnished. a stylist might assist in re-arranging rooms and furniture for optimum impact. and of course we always suggest a floorplan, as well as the keen eye of a professional photographer and the creative spark of a professional copywriter. every home is unique, and so every marketing campaign. it’s not about the biggest or most expensive options, it’s more about what’s appropriate for your home to attract the right buyers.
