The one-off Ferrari Modulo concept is not immune to such a fate, as the spaceship of a car recently caught on fire while out driving. In fact, it's certainly far more likely for an untested concept car to experience more issues than any kind of a production car that's gone through years of testing and development. This particular incident was documented on Twitter by Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus.
Singer is celebrating 10 years of existence at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and it's bringing along a few special 911s for the party. The one we're most excited to see again is the DLS study Singer being built in collaboration with Williams. Apparently Singer has been hard at work testing and working on perfecting the model that debuted at last year's Goodwood, and they'd like to share the results of that testing.
Pricing for the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is officially out. Hurrah! We learned it would produce 760 horsepower the other day, and now we know it'll cost $73,995 after the $1,095 destination charge and $2,600 gas-guzzler tax. With all the option boxes checked, you can get the price beyond $90,000.
Canada doesn't mess around with excessive speeding, as a McLaren 600LT owner just found out the hard way. The West Vancouver police department caught the 39-year-old McLaren owner doing 161 km/h (100 mph) in a 90 km/h (56 mph) zone. Unfortunately for the owner, Canada impounds cars for speeding that much, and so police impounded the McLaren.
Cadillac already teased us once with the hotter CT4-V and CT5-V at the Belle Isle Grand Prix, but these photos are still the best look yet at what's next for the Cadillac V-Series. Cadillac hasn't said, so it could be anything. The middle, raised section of the hood is a little taller and the whole front-end design looks a lot like the one teased in Belle Isle.
You're looking at photos of a Pacifica with a Voyager badge on it, because that's essentially what the new Voyager is. Chrysler took the lower trim levels of the Pacifica and decided those would now be Voyagers. Higher trim levels of the Pacifica are still the Pacifica.
Despite just participating in a flurry of hyped, electrified car reveals, BMW isn't convinced that the end is nigh for the internal combustion engine. The diesel engine still has oodles of time left in the world, and the shift to electrification is overhyped, says the BMW Group board member for development, Klaus Frohlich. A report from Automotive News quotes Frohlich declaring that the diesel engine still has at least 20 more years, and the gasoline engine, at least 30 years.
More specifically, Ford is introducing the 2020 F-Series Super Duty Tremor Off-Road package. It's not an entirely new model, but the Tremor package is a rather comprehensive bit of kit Ford has put together. You may have fond memories of the Tremor from earlier this decade.
Volvo just halfway took the wraps off its new XC90 Armored. For example, the three-row family crossover has 360-degree ballistic resistance, as well as explosive resistance. To get extra granular, this Volvo is rated to withstand full steel jacket rounds, but you'll need VR9 protection to stop full copper alloy jacket bullets, according to the armor company working with Volvo.
The three-row SUV is the largest Audi SUV out there, and it gets slightly (0.4 inch) longer with this update. Audi positioned the smaller Q8 as its flagship SUV this year, but this improved Q7 is out to make your decision a bit tougher. Both the front and rear fascias are massaged to adopt the newest SUV styling from Audi, looking a bit more like the Q8 from the front.
A CarMax in Bakersfield, Calif., just witnessed $2.1 million of its cars go up in flames after a brush fire spread to the lot. Once the fire started, it quickly spread across 20 acres before reaching the CarMax lot. Fire officials assessed the damages — 26 cars were incinerated, and an additional 60 burned in some way or another.
Today marks the next step in BMW's "Next" concept program, previewing the company's future. It's the most exciting step, too, because this particular concept is called the BMW Vision M Next. As this "Next" ground is still relatively untrodden, we'll make it clear that M means the same thing here as it does for every BMW M car.
It's endurance racing season, folks. Or, at least for the last couple weekends it has been. This past weekend's 24 Hours of Nürburgring had its fair share of adventures. Audi won the race after taking advantage of a time penalty served by the Porsche that led most of the race.
Porsche announced a recall for about 100,000 cars due to a rollaway risk. Porsche found that the bushing may degrade over time, causing it to detach. Porsche says one would be able to put the car in Park, take the key out, leave the vehicle, but the car wouldn't actually be in Park.
The body on the chassis is clearly that of a Lynk and Co. 01 SUV, but the underpinnings are something different entirely. Using a Lynk and Co. body to test the Lotus SUV makes sense when you take into account who owns both companies. Geely happens to own Lotus, Lynk and Co. and Volvo, so they're all under the same roof at this point.
Ford just dropped this teaser of a shadowy, winged GT supercar staring back at us, and it certainly has our hearts pounding. If you're in the UK for Goodwood, you'll want to be at the Ford stand in the Drift Paddock for the news. Also, it has a roof scoop, which is something the normal Ford GT doesn't have.
Perhaps our future is going to be filled with electric sports cars all making over 1,000 horsepower. At least that's what it feels like some days as electric car startups continue to come out of the woodwork. Today we're told that a company called Drako Motors is going to be introducing its first production car this August in Monterey at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering.
As we peruse the listings on sites like Autotrader and Cars.com, another thing becomes obviously clear: Dealers are marking Gladiators up substantially. Take a look yourself and you'll find Gladiators of all trim levels listed for $10,000-$20,000 more than their MSRP, as pointed out by Car and Driver. Others are just normal Gladiators that dealers are looking to make a healthy profit on.
The Pininfarina Battista may be the wildest car revealed this year. None of the performance specs have budged, but there are a few styling elements that have been tweaked. Pininfarina justifies the changes in the name of aerodynamics.
A new IIHS study found that a scary amount of people are confused about the driver assistance systems found in cars today. One portion of the study involved the IIHS surveying participants about certain unsafe behaviors behind the wheel, given only the name of the driver assistance system. People weren't given the name of the brand for this section, and were instead told to answer the questions about Autopilot (Tesla), Traffic Jam Assist (Audi and Acura), Super Cruise (Cadillac), Driving Assistant Plus (BMW) and ProPilot Assist (Nissan).
Cadillac decided to reveal the mid-cycle refresh of its crossover on that side of the world, so the vehicle you're looking at here is a China-spec XT5. Cadillac told us it will be able to confirm U.S. specifics in the near future. The grille has been swapped for one that better matches all the other grilles in Cadillac's newest crossovers like the XT4 and XT6.
Acura is coming back to Pikes Peak for the 2019 edition of the hillclimb, and it's bringing four vehicles to attack the mountain. Not the fastest, but perhaps the most interesting of the bunch is a race-prepped 2019 MDX Sport Hybrid. Engineers took the 3.5-liter V6 from the non-hybrid version (Hybrid has a 3.0-liter V6) of the MDX and bored it out to 3.7-liters.
Henrik Fisker looks like he plans on feeding us a slow drip of teasers for his upcoming electric crossover. Today's nugget of news is about the car's solar roof, and the fact that there is one. The Karma Revero (formerly the Fisker Karma) has a solar roof of its own, so this detail isn't as surprising as it may seem at first.
Driving a Santa Fe has never made much of a statement to the world beyond declaring your preference for respectable utility and excellent value. The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe, by contrast, offers to do more thanks to a compelling redesign that includes a sleeker exterior and more visually interesting interior. Basically, you're less likely to say you chose a Santa Fe because you got a great price.
The force is strong with the Mercedes crossover game right now. New, tall vehicles of all sizes seem to be sprouting up constantly with the three-pointed star, including the new GLE, GLS and GLB that we've seen in a rather short timespan. This batch of spy photos shows us a much more complete prototype vehicle, giving us a better sense of what to expect come launch time.
