Subaru Forester, Impreza, XV and BRZ recalled

Subaru has recalled the 2012/13 Impreza, Forester, and XV, along with the 2013 BRZ, over concerns about a defective engine valve spring. According to the company, there's a chance the valve spring will fracture, making the engine stall and not restart. If the car stalls unexpectedly and can't be restarted, there's a safety risk to the driver and other road users around them.

Uber self-driving crash has made manufacturers 'cautious' on autonomy

We've seen some bold claims from car manufacturers about their autonomous programs. General Motors wants to deliver a car without pedals or a steering wheel in 2019, while BMW and Ford are targeting 2021 with their self-driving programs. But the push to automation hasn't been smooth – far from it, in fact. Earlier this year, an Uber test vehicle struck and killed a pedestrian in Tempe, Arizona, garnering the attention of media around the world.

Peugeot 508 maxed on the autobahn - video

With a trendy, compact new shape and frameless doors, there's no doubt the Peugeot 508 is a stylish customer. But its engine line-up consists only of 1.6-litre engines, which seems like minimal displacement in what should be an effortless flagship for the French brand. Turns out, the range-topping 508 GT can still shift, thanks to 169kW and 300Nm channeled through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Put through its paces on the autobahn by AutoTopNL, the sedan runs happily out to 241km/h.

McLaren Senna GTR: Downforce, suspension specifics revealed

McLaren has revealed specifics about its upcoming Senna GTR track flagship, offering details about the car's suspension and monstrous aerodynamics package. The Senna GTR will draw on a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine making 607kW and 800Nm, but the headline figure is the 1000kg of downforce it'll make thanks to a revised aerodynamics package. McLaren hasn't confirmed how fast you need to be to actually create those numbers, but we'd suggest the speedo will need to be showing north of 250km/h.
