Koenigsegg Regera KNC: Naked carbon hypercar revealed

Koenigsegg has revealed its latest special-edition Regera, touting its high-tech new carbon exterior finish. The KNC, or Koenigsegg Naked Carbon, finish involved no lacquer, varnish or alternative coating. Instead, the thin layer of epoxy usually used to coat a cured piece of carbon is gently hand-removed until only the naked carbon remains.

Ghosn may have hidden $95 million in pay from Nissan - reports

When Carlos Ghosn was arrested a few weeks ago, he was accused by Nissan of under-reporting his income in official stock exchange filings. Now details are beginning to emerge of just how he managed it. Various reports have suggested Ghosn hid between ¥5 and ¥9.5 billion ($60 to $110 million), with Bloomberg estimating a figure around $95 million.

2019 BMW M8 Competition spied undisguised

Spy photographers have struck in BMW's warehouses again, snapping the upcoming M8 Competition months ahead of its official reveal. How do we know it's a Competition? BMW has a formula, and this car appears to follow it perfectly. It rides on slim-spoked wheels, and the mirrors, grille, air intakes and door trims are all finished in gloss black – all of which have been used to differentiate Competition models from their less-focused brethren across the existing M range.

2018 Hyundai iMax, iLoad recalled

Hyundai Australia has recalled the 2018 iMax and iLoad, over concerns about the locking mechanism on the rear doors. According to the company, the locking mechanism on the rear sliding door could be defective and unable to hold the door open. When the vehicle is parked facing downhill, the holding mechanism could fail, making the door slide forward and slam shut. This puts people – "especially the limbs" – at risk of "serious bodily injury".
