Daihatsu Copen transformed into mini-Nissan GT-R convertible

Japanese tuner Liberty Walk has unveiled a new body kit package, which turns the cute little convertible hardtop Daihatsu Copen into baby Godzilla. We're not sure why Liberty Walk chose the Copen as its starting point, although the convertible's easily-removable resin body panels may have played a part in the decision.

Self-driving Mustang wobbles its way up Goodwood hillclimb - video

We wrote about a self-driving Mustang preparing for the first autonomous run up the hill at Goodwood yesterday. We all had a good laugh about the possibility of it crashing on the big stage, with the world's motoring enthusiasts watching online. Remember that? It was a fun time... Turns out all that laughing and joking was kind of accurate. We're not going to spoil the ending, but suffice to say the Siemens team behind the 1965 Mustang project aren't likely to enjoy watching the footage below.
