Spinali Design Essential smart jeans

Spinali Design has come up with jeans that cram in vibrating pockets which Bluetooth connect to a smartphone. Why? For directions.

Toyota GT86

T3 took to the snow to put the latest Toyota GT86 through its paces. Yes, it’s rear wheel drive. Yes, the snow made that challenging. And yes, this car is a whole lot of fun.

The new model looks like the previous as there really wasn’t a lot to improve on. Even the engine is the same naturally aspirated 2.0-litre engine. It’s been tweaked with an enhanced injection technology to help throttle response, power and torque. Check out our drive experience to learn more at the link below.
