Audi joins Takata airbag recall

Audi Australia has issued a recall for the previous-generation Q5, A3 and A5 as part of the ongoing and ever-growing Takata airbag campaign. The German marque reported that affected vehicles are fitted with the more serious 'alpha' airbags – rather the less-dangerous, but still potentially deadly, 'beta' inflators. First cab off the rank will be the '8R' Q5 from model years 2009-12 (9244 units), believed to be fitted with faulty driver's side airbags. This recall is active from 13 July.

2018 Ford Mustang GT Eagle Squadron unveiled

The Ford Mustang GT Eagle Squadron has made its debut at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed, where it will be driven up the hill climb by drifting champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. The one-off model pays tribute to Eagle Squadron, a group of volunteer pilots who flew combat missions alongside the Royal Air Force prior to the US' official entry into World War II. Fittingly, the squadron operated from airfields not far from Goodwood.
