2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 to use 3D-printed brake parts

The upcoming Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will make use of two 3D-printed parts in its brakes, developed at its Advanced Manufacturing Centre in Michigan. Along with the GT500, printed parts will be used in the interior of the F-150 bound for the Chinese market. The company says it has a bank of 23 3D printers at the facility in Redford, Michigan, where around 100 people are employed.

Mercedes-Benz E300e announced for the UK

Mercedes-Benz UK has detailed the plug-in hybrid E300e, which commences deliveries in Great Britain from 'spring 2019'. Unlike the E300de, which teams a turbo-diesel engine with plug-in hybrid tech, the E300e uses a more conventional petrol-electric setup. Power comes from a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine making 211hp (157kW) and 350Nm, while the electric motor makes 122hp (91kW) and 440Nm. Mercedes-Benz claims a beefy system torque output of 700Nm, not bad at all.

508, Q3, S60/V60, X5 score five-star Euro NCAP ratings

Euro NCAP has awarded five-star safety ratings to several new models, including the Audi Q3, BMW X5, Peugeot 508, along with the Volvo S60/V60. The Q3, 508, S60 and V60 all scored over 90 per cent in the area of Adult Occupant Protection, while the X5 managed 89 per cent – largely due to the driver's knee airbag not deploying properly in the front offset test.
