McLaren 720S Stealth Edition unveiled

The McLaren 720S Stealth Edition has been unveiled overnight, continuing a long line of one-off MSO takes on the mid-engined rival to the Ferrari 488. Developed by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) for the marque's London dealer, the Stealth Edition has an exterior finished in Sarthe Grey paint, said to be inspired by the McLaren F1 GTR which won the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Audi R8 to stick with V10 for this generation

The Audi R8 will see out its second generation with the existing 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 engine as its sole powertrain option. In the first-generation car, the R8 was offered with a V10, while more affordable variants were powered by a 4.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8. The latter engine disappeared when the second-generation R8 was unveiled in 2015.

2019 Audi A6L unveiled

Audi has unveiled the 2019 A6L at the Guangzhou motor show, capitalising on demand for extended-wheelbase versions of regular models. The A6L measures 100mm longer than the regular A6 sedan, making it longer than even the brand's flagship A8 sedan. Neither the regular wheelbase A6 or A8 are sold in the Chinese market, reflecting the huge demand for cars with generous rear legroom.

Ford Fiesta, Ranger recalled

Ford has recalled the 2010-16 Fiesta and 2011-15 Ranger, over concerns about the pawl spring tab in the side-door latch. According to the company, the spring tab in a side-door latch could break, which usually prevents the door from latching. If the car can be closed, however, the door could open while the vehicle is moving. That increases the risk of accident, and puts some occupants at risk of falling out of the vehicle while it's in motion.

Toyota Yaris GRMN unboxed by James May - video

The internet is full of 'unboxing' videos where YouTubers unpack new iPhones for their millions of subscribers, but what about products that are a little more out of the box – excuse the pun. In this new clip, former Top Gear host James May unboxes a real-life Toyota Yaris GRMN, the performance version of the Japanese manufacturer's run-of-the-mill light hatch. Without giving too much away, May completes the process rather slowly – in keeping with his 'Captain Slow' nickname, naturally.
