Tesla Nurburgring record attempt postponed 

Tesla is inching closer to its electric car lap record attempt at the Nurburgring, having been spotted doing several shakedown runs at the German circuit overnight. What appears to be a modified Model S sedan – with wider wheel arches, wider wheels, carbon ceramic brakes, semi-slick racing tyres, a rear wing, and a new 100D+ badge – was caught on camera having only done five laps on Thursday.

McLaren: “We will not build an SUV”

McLaren will not follow its sports car rivals by adding an SUV to its stable. The British supercar maker has just released its most practical model yet, the GT. It’s a McLaren aimed at the grand touring segment and, despite its mid-engine layout, offers a luggage capacity of 570L via a specially created cargo bay above the lowered V8 that combines with the front compartment familiar from the company’s other models.
