Aston Martin DB9, DBS, Virage and Vanquish recalled

Aston Martin Lagonda has recalled the DB9, DBS, Virage and Vanquish, over concerns an in-cabin battery supply cable could cause a fire. If the driver seat is pushed all the way back in affected cars, it could compress (and damage) the battery supply cable. According to the company, this can happen when the driver manually puts the seat back (likely, if they're tall) or, in some cases, if the seat loses its calibration.

Australians unsure on autonomous cars - study

Ford has released its 2018 Trend Report, with some interesting findings about Australian attitudes to autonomy. According to the study, only 52 per cent of Australians are 'hopeful' about the future of self-driving cars. Although that was on par with Canada and America, both of which returned 50 per cent, it was well behind the Middle East (71 per cent), Brazil (75 per cent), India (81 per cent) and China (83 per cent).

Audi RS4: Through the generations

The 2018 Audi RS4 is nearly here, but how far has is come? Well, we decided to have a look back to see how Audi's small performance wagon has evolved over the last 23 years. While it may not wear the RS4 badge, the Audi RS2 Avant from the early '90s is the one that started it all, combining sports car performance with five seats and a practical boot area. Under the bonnet was a 2.2-litre turbocharged five-cylinder engine, developing 232kW (315hp).
