2019 Range Rover Velar updates announced

The Range Rover Velar has received some minor upgrades for the 2019 model year, bringing new engine options and driver assistance technologies to the luxury SUV range. Following similar changes to the closely-related 2019 Jaguar F-Pace line-up, the Velar range sees the addition of two new V6 engine options – one petrol one diesel – while petrol models also get a larger fuel tank, now 82L instead of 63L.

Waymo, self-driving research arm for Google, has been involved in the second major self-driving accident to hit Arizona in a matter of months – but the computer wasn't at fault. According to local police, the self-driving Chrysler was operating in autonomous mode when the accident occurred, while Waymo claims the car was under human control. Regardless of who was in command, the Waymo-branded Pacifica wasn't responsible for the incident.

Mercedes-Benz commissions new metal parts for 300SL Gullwing

Resto-modding is all the rage at the moment, with manufacturers digging out their classic blueprints and diving into the world of hand-beaten panels, all to serve the demands of a very wealthy few.
