2019 Ferrari P80/C: 'Most extreme' one-off revealed

Ferrari has whipped the covers off its latest, 'most extreme' one-off customer design yet, in the form of the retro-futuristic P80/C. Inspired by the 330 P3/P4 and 1966 Dino 206 S, development on the P80/C started in 2015, giving the car the longest gestation period of any one-off Ferrari. Rather than slapping a set of fresh body panels over the 488 GTB's base structure, the design team took a 488 GT3 and set about creating the track-ready weapon you see here.

2018-19 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, E-Class, S-Class recalled

Mercedes-Benz has recalled a smattering of 2018 and 2019 C-Class, E-Class and S-Class models, over concerns about an issue with the seatbelt detection system. According to the company, it's possible affected cars will not register a correctly-engaged seatbelt. A warning light and tone will sound in the instrument cluster, and there's a risk the car's Pre-Safe system won't function.
