Gordon Murray Automotive T.50: the 980kg supercar

British supercar maker Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA) has this week confirmed its T.50 supercar will weigh in at only 980kg – fulfilling a target set for the car last year. Last year, Gordon Murray – head of GMA and designer of the iconic McLaren F1 – set an ambitious goal of a 980kg weight for the three-seater T.50, rendering it the lightest supercar ever produced. For context, this figure undercuts the average weight of 1436kg for modern supercars by almost a third, GMA claims.

Tom Brady is selling his heavily modified stretch Cadillac Escalade

American NFL player Tom Brady is selling his 2018 Cadillac Escalade ESV – giving football fans and car lovers alike a chance to buy a so-called "piece of the Brady legacy" for US$300,000 (AU$451,219). The massive luxury SUV, which Brady originally purchased for US$350,000, has only 13,000 miles – or 20,921km – on the odometer and is up for sale at Becker Automotive Design, the California-based custom vehicle shop that originally modified the car.

Truth about Ford Ranger Raptor V8: why it’s not coming this year or possibly ever

A Ford Ranger Raptor V8 will not arrive in Australian showrooms this year – or likely ever – an extensive investigation by CarAdvice has found. Contrary to media reports that claimed a Ford Ranger Raptor V8 “is coming”, “has been sanctioned by Ford Australia”, will be “sold through Ford dealers (with) full five-year warranty”, and is “anticipated” by the end of 2020, CarAdvice has learned the program was never close to approval stage.

Bentley files patent for steering wheel that tucks away

British luxury brand Bentley has filed a patent application for a steering wheel that is able to be moved out of the way on self-driving cars. Patent images of the radical design first surfaced on US forum Cybertrucktalk, showing a hinged mechanism that allows the ‘wheel’ to swing. The mechanism allows the controls to occupy the position of a conventional steering wheel or retract into a recess in the driver’s door.
