2020 Audi S3 interior spied

The interior of the next-generation 2021 Audi S3 has been spied while undergoing cold weather testing in northern Europe. The exterior of the S3 looks to be an evolution of today's hatch, albeit with an all new body, and sharper detailing, especially around the intakes and lights. By comparison, the interior of the new A3 and S3 is quite a radical reinvention. The design of the current car's free-standing infotainment screen, relatively flat dashboard and round vents have all been retired.

Gone in 60 days: Ford Mustang R-Spec sold out despite $100,000 price

Ford dealers are telling customers they have sold out of their allocations of the upcoming Mustang R-Spec – even though the price tops $100,000 by the time it’s in the traffic. The Ford Mustang R-Spec was unveiled in the lead up to the 2019 Bathurst 1000 but dealers were allocated cars within the first 60 days of the announcement. It has taken less than half that time for all examples to be accounted for. Some dealers sold out within 24 hours of informing their customers.
