Alpina: X7-based mule spied, Australian arm interested

Darcy Foster • Alpina has its eye on an upcoming BMW X7-based model for Australia, based on the success of its smaller XD3. The mid-sized XD3 SUV, which launched locally earlier this year as a rival to the Audi SQ5, has seen “good initial interest” locally, according to an Alpina Australia spokesperson. “It’s natural that we will seriously consider any further SUV options that are made available in [right-hand drive],” the spokesperson told CarAdvice.

Bentley V8 engine turns 60

The motoring world isn't kind to old technology. The average model cycle is eight years, with a styling change halfway through to keep things fresh – if you're really good at facelifts, maybe a model can be stretched to 12 or 13 years. Bentley doesn't really work on the same timelines as the rest of the motoring industry, though. Forget 12 years, the V8 engine in the current Mulsanne has just turned 60.

2020 Mini JCW GP to debut in LA

Mini will finally unveil the third-generation John Cooper Works GP at the Los Angeles motor show, packing a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine making at least 225kW. When it launches, the GP promises to be the fastest-ever road-going Mini. It's the latest in a line of pared-back, track-ready special editions, with production limited to just 3000 units. According to Mini, the previous-generation JCW GP lapped the Nurburgring in 8:23.00, but the new model has already dipped below eight minutes.
