Bugatti Divo silhouette teased

Bugatti has offered a final peek at the upcoming Divo, giving us a glimpse at the hypercar's silhouette before its reveal at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance later this week From what we can see, the Divo will have its own uniquely-styled body, even though it will be based on the platform and running gear of the Chiron. Changes seemingly include a new glasshouse design, large rear wings, and puffed up wheel arches.

The automotive name of thrones: Conventions

Car companies put a lot of time and effort into the names of their vehicles. Some are overnight successes, while others are more of a slow road to success and others still are just plain embarrassing. There’s no doubt some car names have become icons unto themselves to the point where they almost overshadow the brands they come from. Take Mustang and Corvette for instance, which have broken the bonds of their Ford and Chevrolet parents and grown into brands of their own.

Configurator Challenge: Personalised plates

Customisation is in vogue at the moment, but choice can be seriously confusing. In our configurator challenge, we let the CarAdvice team loose on a manufacturer’s website to create their ideal spec of a certain model.

2019 AMG GT R Roadster spied

A drop-top take on the hottest Mercedes-AMG, the GT R, has been spied during development testing. The AMG GT R Roadster will sit alongside its Nurburgring-conquering coupe sibling, with power from a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 making 430kW and 700Nm, sent exclusively to the rear wheels. That should be good for a 100km/h sprint time of around 3.6 seconds, and a top speed in excess of 300km/h. In other words, fast enough to make your hair stand on end.

BMW patents bottom-filling champagne glasses

Imagine this: you're being transported at 189km/h down an autobahn on your way to an important meeting. You've just finished haranguing your personal assistant about his use of Comic Sans on an important document. You're a little stressed out, and need to relax. So, you begin pouring a small pre-meeting drink into your car's bespoke, hand-engraved champagne flute, and then your driver hits the brakes because some lowly Civic Type R thinks he belongs in the left lane.
