Ford Ranger Raptor police car earns its stripes

Pint-sized police cars in the UK – such as the Fiat Panda – have for years been ridiculed because crooks could get away even on foot. But UK cops could soon have the last laugh: police across Britain are testing a Ford Ranger Raptor for special duties.

2021 Jaguar F-Type to debut on 2 December

Jaguar has released a teaser video of the upcoming, revised F-Type coupe and convertible, set to be revealed on 2 December. There’s not much to see in the six-second video – the only part of the car visible is the gauge cluster – but you can hear the intoxicating sound of the F-Type’s V8 engine. That indicates the thunderous, supercharged 5.0-litre V8 will continue. In R guise, the V8 produces 405kW and 680Nm while the range-topping SVR ekes out an additional 18kW and 20Nm.

2021 Audi A3 sedan spied without camouflage

The next-generation Audi A3 and S3 sedans have been photographed, with the front of the regular three-box model seen completely undisguised for the first time. With the sheets pulled back, we can see the design of the new A3's front fascia, which includes a broader single-frame grille. In order to give the new sedan a bit more dynamism, the bulge from the front wheel arch now extends into the front door panels.
