2007 Dodge Nitro recalled

Fiat Chrysler Australia has recalled the 2007 Dodge Nitro, over concerns about the windscreen wipers. According to the company, the windscreen wipers might become inoperative. If they stop working while it's raining, drivers will be faced with reduced visibility, putting them at greater risk of an accident. A total of 814 units are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

Radical Rapture: Road-legal racer revealed

Radical has used the Goodwood Festival of Speed to reveal its latest road-legal weapon, the Rapture. Capable of hitting 98km/h (60mph) in just 3.0 seconds, and with a top speed north of 260km/h, the Rapture's performance claims are impressive, especially when you consider power comes from a 2.3-litre turbo four-cylinder engine nicked from Ford. More specifically, from the Focus RS.

De Tomaso P72 unveiled

The De Tomaso P72 has been unveiled at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Although the new car has been named in honour of the 1965 P70 racing car, the P72 has a modern carbon-fibre chassis borrowed from the Apollo IE. Both Apollo and De Tomaso were brought together under common ownership in 2014. The company says the P72's design "focuses on [bringing the] timeless beauty and timeless proportions of the ’60s Le Mans prototype vehicles into the modern era".
