Volkswagen Amarok Aventura Exclusive: 190kW ute concept revealed for Frankfurt

Volkswagen is bringing a pair of special utes to the Frankfurt motor show next week: the Amarok Aventura Exclusive concept and the Amarok Dark Label special edition. Headlining the duo is the 'Tumeric Yellow' Aventura Exclusive concept, which features an uprated 190kW version of the current model's 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel, and is said to "offer a look at the future range-topping 3.0-litre TDI engine" - likely a challenger the recently-revealed V6 Mercedes-Benz X-Class.

Ducati not for sale, says Volkswagen - report

Ducati is staying under the Volkswagen Group umbrella - at least that’s according to a report by Bloomberg, which cites ongoing opposition from the German company's powerful labour unions as the reason why the motorcycle company's ‘for sale’ sign has been temporarily removed. The move prompted several or more bidders, including Italy’s Benetton family, US automotive firm Polaris Industries, and Ducati’s former owner Italian company Investindustrial to express dismay in the process.

Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta to go under the hammer for the children

As part of Ferrari’s 70th anniversary year, it will auction a ‘one-of-a-kind’ LaFerrari Aperta, with the proceeds going to long-standing NGO charity fund, Save the Children. On December 3, 2016, a LaFerrari was auctioned off for a staggering US$7 million (8.7 million), making it the most expensive car of the decade ever sold at auction. No doubt, Ferrari will be hoping to raise a similar amount for this worthy cause.
