BMW takes control of its Chinese joint venture

BMW and Brilliance have just signed an extension to their joint venture operations in China, with the new contract seeing the two automakers working together until 2040. As part of the contract renewal, BMW will grow its stake in the joint venture from 50 to 75 per cent. When this change occurs is unclear, as the move still needs to be approved by Brilliance's shareholders and the Chinese authorities.

McLaren Senna vs 720S - which is more fun?

There are good days at the office, and then there are days where your only job is to thrash a pair of McLaren supercars around a scenic, coastal circuit. The team at Autocar has been putting the 720S head-to-head with its more expensive, track-focused sibling lately, but the comparison has been purely numbers-based. In the final instalment of the four-part series, Dan Prosser throws science to the wind and flogs the two cars around around a track to see which is more fun.

Audi Q7 3.0TDI temporarily removed from sale in Australia

Audi Australia has temporarily removed the non-S Q7 from its line-up, as the factory in Germany revises the car's AdBlue diesel exhaust treatment system.

The car will be back on sale when the AdBlue system "optimisation" is given the tick of approval by the relevant authorities in Europe.
