2019 BMW M8 gets M Performance treatment

Ford to close UK engine plant in 2020

Ford will close its Bridgend engine factory in Wales as part of a wider restructuring of its European business. The factory currently makes various three- and four-cylinder engines, including the Sigma family and the 1.5-litre EcoBoost used in the Fiesta ST and Focus range. As a holdover from Ford's ownership of Jaguar, there's also a factory within the plant making the 5.0-litre V8 used by Jaguar Land Rover.

Jaguar XE Project 8 gains 'Touring' spec, available in Australia

Jaguar has followed in Porsche's footsteps, adding a more subtle 'Touring' specification to its hardcore XE Project 8 sedan range. Gone is the Project 8's ostentatious rear wing and stickers, replaced with a tidy little lip spoiler. Just 15 examples will be built, all of which will be offered with a four-seat interior, as Jaguar looks to reposition the supercharged special edition as a practical family option. Well, as practical as a car with a supercharged V8 making 447kW can be, anyway.
