Bugatti Chiron gains 'Sky View' option

Bugatti has added a new Sky View option to the Chiron, letting a bit of extra light into the lives of its pampered customers. The option, which is available to order now, consists of two laminated glass panels over the front seats. Measuring 65cm long and 44cm wide, the panels are fixed presumably because sunroofs at 400km/h seem like a recipe for disaster.

Sergio Marchionne: A brief history of his time as CEO of Fiat and Chrysler

Sergio Marchionne, head of Fiat since 2004 and Chrysler from 2009, has passed away aged 66 after complications arising from surgery. Known for his straight-talking style, workaholic lifestyle, and love of black wooly sweaters, Marchionne was not a noted "car guy", but his legacy includes turning around not one, but two automakers. He is survived by his partner Manuela Battezzato, and his sons Alessio and Tyler.

Ford Ranger Raptor: "People wouldn't even consider" EcoBoost V6

Ford's head of product development for Asia Pacific has explained that there isn't a market for a diesel or petrol V6 in the Ranger Raptor, which is why it wasn't considered as part of the product plan. The massive hype behind the Ranger Raptor took a slight hit when Ford announced a 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel instead of a petrol V6 like the one found in the F-150 Raptor, or a more powerful V6 diesel engine.
