Carlos Ghosn charged again, but given bail

Late last week Carlos Ghosn walked out of the Tokyo Detention Centre again after posting ¥500 million ($6.3 million) in bail. Unlike his first release from jail, when he donned a construction worker's outfit as disguise, Ghosn left jail this time in a plain white button-up shirt with a dark blue jacket. The court imposed a new condition on his freedom, requiring Ghosn to seek permission before he meets or communicates with his wife Carole.

Toyota opens Nurburgring-inspired test track

Toyota has opened its new Technical Centre in Shimoyama, Japan, complete with a test track inspired by the Nurburgring Nordschleife. Although it's inspired by the 20.8km-long Green Hell, the new Toyota test centre isn't quite as large. The track is a 5.3km loop with a 75m elevation gap between its highest and lowest points, developed "based on long experience of the Nurburgring Nordschleife, which is famous throughout the world for its gruelling driving conditions".
