Ford Edge dropped in the UK

Ford has decided to limit availability of its Edge SUV in Europe, known here as the Endura, due to slow sales in certain markets and ever-tightening emissions laws. A new report by Automotive News Europe says the Blue Oval's European arm will pull the Edge from markets like the UK – which also happens to be Ford's largest European market – while soldiering on in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Poland, Austria, Belgium and Romania.

Ultima RS: 400km/h road-legal racer revealed

Ultima has revealed its latest race-inspired road car, with a top speed north of 400km/h and almost 900kW of power in its most powerful tune. The new RS will be offered with three engines, starting with an 'LT1' V8 making 358kW. That's nothing compared to what's theoretically available, but still enough to propel the car to 97km/h in 3.3 seconds, on its way to a top speed just shy of 300km/h.
