A brutal Brabus tuned Mercedes C63 AMG spotted at the Motor Yacht Club of Tasmania in Lindisfarne recently. Although we’re unsure of the exact performance of this car, the B63 S package offered by Brabus claims to boost power from the standard 480hp up to 530hp. The modifications made to achieve this include new high-performance catalysts, sport air filters, and reprogrammed engine electronics with custom ignition and injection mapping. Brabus has become famed for some of their absurd creations based on regular Mercedes, however sightings of them in Australia are few and far between.
A sinister looking McLaren 720S spotted in Salamanca this morning. Belonging to McLaren's 'Super Series' the 720S has proven itself to be a straight-line missile, outperforming vastly more expensive cars and creating speculation that its claimed 2.9 second 0 to 100km/h acceleration time was conservatively published to keep P1 owners happy (the actual time is 2.6).
A beautiful and rarely seen Mercedes SLS AMG spotted on Castray Esplanade in Hobart to get us rolling for 2019! Destined to become an ultra-valuable collectors car in the future, the SLS has already achieved modern-classic status within the car community. This one has a Ferrari F40, 812 Superfast and many other impressive machines as stablemates. Thanks to @shuqiyu.mn for the great photo.
Here's a shot of a spectacular Giallo Orion Lamborghini Aventador SV to wrap up what has been an incredible 2018! 
Thanks to everyone who sent in photos over the year regardless of if they were posted, we wouldn't be able to operate without you. With significant economic growth in the state over recent years, there's never been more exciting cars on our roads, and we can't wait to see what the future holds!
We never get tired of seeing this ‘Crayon’ coloured Porsche 911 GT3! The yellow Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (a $21.5k option) contrast extremely well with the colour and the satin black wheels. What colour would you spec a new GT3 in?
This freshly delivered Ferrari 488 GTB isn’t afraid to get a little wet! Spotted in Sandy Bay last week during some inclement weather, it’s fantastic to see the car being used rather than hidden away.
A stunning McLaren 570S Spider spotted enjoying the warm weather in Richmond this morning. The owner also has his 720S in town, which was seen on the wharf in Hobart last night. Thanks to Ben Meyerman for the photo.
The perfect car for a weekend away on Tassie’s East Coast? We certainly wouldn’t say no to a chance to go exploring in this BMW X6 M spotted in Binalong Bay this afternoon. Powered by a 4.4L twin-turbo V8 that pumps out 423kW and 750Nm, the car can haul itself from 0 to 100km/h in 4.2 seconds. Handling is also impressive thanks to massive 285mm front and 325mm rear tyres, keeping this beast firmly planted on the road.
If we could wake up to find a car under the Christmas tree, a Porsche 911 GT2 RS would be pretty high on our list of preferences! This stunning Guards Red example was spotted on Constitution Dock in Hobart last month. Merry Christmas to all of you!
An elegant Aston Martin DB9 spotted in Riverside yesterday morning. This post-2013 facelifted example was purchased earlier this year, replacing a first generation Vanquish in the owners garage. Thanks to Oliver Darrow for the photo.
A fantastic looking BMW M4 Competition spotted in Battery Point this afternoon. Although most buyers opt for BMW's exceptional 7 speed dual-clutch transmission, a 6 speed manual gearbox is also available in the M4, making it the only performance coupé from the big three German luxury automakers to offer three pedals.  Would you choose paddles or the manual?
Recently driven around the state by Mark Webber, this Porsche 911 GT3 looked spotless after receiving a detail before being returned to Porsche Australia earlier this week.  Optioned with the hardcore carbon-fibre bucket seats, six point race harness and 6 speed manual gearbox, this GT3 is every bit the enthusiast car that you might expect a retired F1 driver to take for a blast down some backroads. Thanks to Grant White for the photo.
