Abarth 124 GT, Fiat S-Design models revealed

Abarth has unveiled a special-edition hardtop version of the 124 Spider, ahead of a full reveal in Geneva next week. Unlike the Mazda MX-5/Miata-aping soft-top on regular 124 Spiders, the GT packs a removable carbon-fibre hardtop and a number of lightweight touches around its exterior. Abarth says the roof, which weighs just 16kg, helps improve the "compactness" and torsional rigidity of the car. It's lined on the inside, and the rear glass window is equipped with proper de-mister.

McLaren Senna Carbon Theme by MSO revealed

McLaren Special Operations has worked its magic on the Senna, creating the 'Carbon Theme' ahead of next week's Geneva motor show. According to MSO, the carbon finish you see here took almost 1000 hours to produce. It's made up of 67 parts, offset by Sonar Yellow detailing that, according to the company, took 250 hours to apply. Coupled with the Laurel Green brake calipers, the yellow detailing is designed to pay homage Ayrton Senna's legendary helmet and, by extension, the Brazilian flag.

Renault Australia wants Kadjar crossover

The relatively-new Renault Australia management has put the Kadjar small-SUV back on its radar, preferably in updated guise during 2019. The Kadjar, which shares its platform with the big-selling Nissan Qashqai, would allow Renault Australia to fill the smaller Captur and larger Koleos in its range. Given the SUV market's continued growth — it accounts for more of the market than traditional passenger cars — the car would clearly help Renault shift more cars.
