Photographers have snapped images of the upcoming Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante without camouflage this week, giving a very clear look at what to expect from the drop-top super-GT.

2019 BMW M5 CS spied

BMW has been snapped testing what appears to be a more focused M5 'CS' on the Nurburgring. Although it's very similar to the 'regular' M5 visually, there are a few hints this car is packing an extra punch. For one, it's wearing a carbon gurney flap on the boot lid, something BMW fitted to the M3 and M4 CS variants released last year.

2016 Jaguar XE, XF added to Takata recall

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has initiated a recall for the 2016 'X760' XE and 'X260' XF as part of the ongoing Takata airbag campaign. As with previous Takata-related recalls, affected airbag inflators could degrade over time when exposed to high temperatures and humidity over time. If the condition occurs, the airbag propellant can degrade, and if the vehicle is involved in a collision the metal inflator housing could rupture upon deployment, sending shrapnel-like fragments into the cabin.

Carbon fibre can be used to store electricity: study

Electric cars could soon be able to store their energy within carbon-fibre body panels, enabling manufactures to conserve weight and space, according to a new study. The paper from Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden found carbon fibres could function as battery electrodes. Because of this, the carbon-fibre structure of a car could act as a battery, holding charge for the electric motors.
