2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 engine details revealed

Power and torque figures for the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 have been confirmed ahead of the car's release later this year. Under the bonnet is a 5.2-litre supercharged V8 with 567kW (760hp) of power and 847Nm of torque. That's significantly more than the 522kW (700hp) or so the company promised when it unveiled the GT500 at this year's Detroit motor show. In January, Ford said the GT500 would also feature a carbon-fibre driveshaft and a seven-speed Tremec dual-clutch transmission.

2005-14 Ford Mustang, 2005-06 Ford GT recalled

Crossover Car Conversions has recalled the 2005-2014 Ford Mustang and 2005-2006 Ford GT to replace their faulty Takata airbags. As with all Takata-related recalls, the campaign concerns airbag inflators that degrade due to a combination of heat and humidity. If an affected car is involved in an accident triggering the airbags, the metal inflator can explode or rupture under too much internal pressure.

2019 Toyota Yaris recalled

Toyota has recalled the 2019 Yaris over concerns about the left-rear window glass. According to the company, the glass may have been inadequately tempered because of an improper cooling process during manufacture. If the glass is broken it won't shatter into small pieces, instead breaking into large fragments, increasing occupants' risk of injury in an accident. A total of 26 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

Holden Astra sedan, Sportwagon axed

Holden has removed the best-selling Astra variant, the sedan, from its line-up, with no clear successor in sight. The slow-selling Sportwagon has also been dropped from the range, although both cars will still appear online and in showrooms while remaining stock is shifted. Speaking with CarAdvice, a Holden spokesperson said the company has been managing stock closely and dealers "weren't exactly overburdened" with cars at last check, so we'd suggest neither model will be available for long.
