Skoda recalls MY18 models over airbag fix

Skoda Australia has issued a recall for 27 vehicles across the 2018 model-year Fabia, Karoq, Kodiaq, Octavia, Rapid and Superb lines due to an airbag fault that may see the driver’s unit not inflate properly in the event of a collision. “In some instances, the front driver air bag may not inflate to its fullest capacity fast enough when required,” the company says in the recall notice.

Radical Rapture: Road-legal racer revealed

Radical has used the Goodwood Festival of Speed to reveal its latest road-legal weapon, the Rapture.

More specifically, from the Focus RS.
