MOTOR Hot Tuner


MOTOR’s unique and long-running Hot Tuner programme has taken a significant turn to meet the changing needs of Australia’s vibrant and world-leading performance aftermarket.

Originally instigated as a multi-discipline motorsport showdown pitching vehicles of all makes and models against one another over two days, MOTOR has updated the Hot Tuner model to focus on more in-depth reviews on some of the country’s most cutting-edge late model performance vehicles.

These enhanced road cars will be thoroughly reviewed by MOTOR’s talented journalists and the results laid bare. As always, we’re rewarding tuners that can formulate refined enhancement packages for their customers that deliver awesome performance without compromising drivability.
