2016 BMW M3, M4, M4 Convertible recalled

BMW has recalled a handful of 2016 M3 and M4 models, over concerns about a three-hole flange within the car's driveshaft. According to the company, the car's carbon-fibre driveshaft contains a three-hole flange and a pushing piece which isn't produced with 'sufficient long-term durability'. That means the 'pushing piece' could be pulled out of the driveshaft. If that happens, torque mightn't be transmitted to the rear wheels, putting drivers at risk of accident.

2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter recalled

Mercedes-Benz has recalled the 2018 Sprinter, over concerns about the electronic door locks. According to the company, the electronic door locks could have been installed with an incorrect operating lever. As a result, the front driver's hinged door, load compartment sliding door and rear-right door could be impossible to open from the inside or outside. In an emergency, that means there's a risk drivers or passengers won't be able to escape through the right-hand side of the vehicle.

Toyota HiLux and Fortuner Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) fix begins

Toyota Australia has started issuing a 'Customer Service Exercise Notification' for the Toyota HiLux and Fortuner fitted with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and the 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine. Due to it not being a customer safety issue, this isn't classed as a 'recall' and is instead simply a notice calling for customers to visit their dealers for a fix.

Lamborghini Huracan Evo: How it draws inspiration from the Countach

There’s no mistaking a Lamborghini for anything else – and it’s been that way since Ferruccio Lamborghini formed his sports car company in 1963 in the tiny rural town of Sant’ Agata Bolognese. The 350GT was the first model to roll out of the factory in 1964 (only 131 were ever built), but it was the drop-dead gorgeous Miura that took the motoring world by storm and single-handedly created the supercar segment, well ahead of arch-rival Ferrari.
