Radical Rapture: Road-legal racer revealed

Radical has used the Goodwood Festival of Speed to reveal its latest road-legal weapon, the Rapture. Capable of hitting 98km/h (60mph) in just 3.0 seconds, and with a top speed north of 260km/h, the Rapture's performance claims are impressive, especially when you consider power comes from a 2.3-litre turbo four-cylinder engine nicked from Ford. More specifically, from the Focus RS.

Lexus confirms LC Convertible for production, local arm ‘very keen’

Lexus has confirmed it will produce the LC Convertible, debuting a camouflaged pre-production prototype at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Timing and specification of the LC Convertible is still yet to be announced, though we’d say the new model isn’t far off. “It will broaden the LC line-up and bring a sense of a completeness to the brand's flagship models,” the company said in its press release.

2007-09 Dodge Nitro, 2008-09 Jeep Cherokee recalled

Fiat Chrysler Australia has recalled the 2007-09 Dodge Nitro and 2008-09 Jeep Cherokee, over concerns about their tyre placards. According to the company, the placard on the Cherokee lists an incorrect load and speed rating, while the placard in the Nitro has the wrong speed rating and lacks a 'p-metric qualifier'. The incorrect information on the tyre placard could encourage owners to use their cars incorrectly, which could impact the safety of owners and other road users.

Toyota Supra GT4 revealed

Toyota Gazoo Racing has revealed the production version of the Supra GT4 race car, set to compete in various championships in 2020. Based on the Supra GT4 concept revealed at the Geneva motor show in March, the production race car forms part of Toyota’s efforts to “strengthen its focus on customer motorsports”. GT4 cars are much closer to the road cars they’re based on compared to other GT classes, making them more affordable and therefore more accessible to private race teams.
