The Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI) has promised to review current automotive advertising standards, after complaints from a long-time road-safety activist. Harold Scruby, Pedestrian Council of Australia chief executive, recently raised concerns about Ford's latest Ranger Raptor campaign, which involves the pumped-up dual-cab running at high speed off-road. The ute also gets airborne throughout the ad.

Mercedes-AMG One delayed nine months

The Mercedes-AMG One is an audacious project, aimed at caging Formula 1 power in a road-legal (but track-focused) body. Unsurprisingly, developing such a car hasn't been simple. Speaking with Top Gear in the UK, Mercedes-AMG boss, Tobias Moers, admitted to delays caused by adjustments on the car's powertrain. "My expectation was that we were going to have a time when we have some major issues and we have to solve them," Moers said.
