Donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70 revealed

Donkervoort has revealed an impressive 70th birthday present for its founder, Joop Donkervoort, in the form of a sub-700kg supercar killer. The D8 GTO-JD70 is powered by a 2.5-litre five-cylinder Audi Sport engine, 'optimised' by the boffins at Donkervoort to make 415hp (309kW) and 520Nm. There's a side exhaust system, which should free up plenty of angry five-cylinder noise as well.

Tesla sued for wrongful death, door handles blamed

A wrongful death suit alleges the driver of a Tesla Model S died because emergency responders were unable to open his Tesla’s flush door handles. According to US industry journal Automotive News and news agency Bloomberg, Omar Awan, a 48-year-old anaesthesiologist, died of smoke inhalation when a fire broke out in his 2016 Tesla Model S, after he lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a tree. The crash occurred in February of this year in Davie, Florida.

Toyota Australia flags hybrid growth, demands action on emissions mitigation

Toyota Australia’s (TMCA) hybrid rollout continues at pace, with one-in-five vehicles it sells here next year expected to be petrol-electric. That’s equivalent to 40,000 cars. Moreover, the company’s local arm — which sells about double the number of cars as its closest competitors Mazda and Hyundai — says it continues to lobby government to formulate more stringent regulations on CO2 output across industry.
