Autobahn to remain derestricted, despite climate push

Germany will maintain its derestricted sections of autobahn, despite a government-appointed report suggesting lower limits could help cut carbon emissions. Speaking with reporters in Berlin, a government spokesperson said there are "more intelligent control mechanisms" than a 130km/h speed limit. That sentiment was backed by German transport minister, Andreas Scheuer, who said the push "goes against all common sense".

2019 Opel Corsa spied

A prototype for the next-generation Opel Corsa has been snapped during winter testing in Northern Europe, wearing a full-body wrap. As such, it's easy to discern the car's overall shape and form, but hard to make out many of its details. Despite this, we can see it will look substantially different to the next-generation Peugeot 208, which was spied earlier this month. The new Corsa could sport some of the brand's new "bold and pure" design language, debuted on a pair of concept cars.

Detroit motor show: 10 of the worst concepts from history

The 2019 Detroit motor show didn’t deliver any concepts to send the world recoiling in horror, but its track record hasn’t always been clean. As a counterpoint to some of the best over the last 20 years, we’ve also dug up a few of the less agreeable stars to grace the Detroit stage.
