Mercedes-Benz C-Class, E-Class recalled

Mercedes-Benz has recalled the C-Class and E-Class, over concerns about incorrectly-installed panelling on the exhaust system. According to the company, the left cutout for the exhaust system isn't installed correctly, and could make contact with hot components. If it touches a hot exhaust component during 'full-load operation' could make the paneling catch fire. A total of five units, sold during May 2018, are included in the recall – a VIN list is attached here.

2019 BMW 3 Series Touring spied

The next-generation BMW 3 Series Touring has been spied again, this time giving us an early look and the new 3er's interior. While still heavily camouflaged, we can see the new-gen 3 Series Touring will look very much like a shrunken version of the new 5 Series Touring – which is no bad thing. A quick look at the interior images adds to the 'mini-me' design, though the next 3 Series will adopt several new cabin elements from the company's latest models – namely the all-new X5 and 8 Series.

Aston Martin and Red Bull keen to enter new car in Le Mans 24 Hour

Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing are keen to enter their upcoming hypercar project in the 24 Hour of Le Mans race. The Automobile Club de l'Ouest, organisers of the race, and the FIA have proposed a new classification, which will allow road-going hypercars and concept cars with hybrid drivetrains to take part. Set to come into effect for the 2020/21 season, the new rules aim to slash entry costs to a quarter of their present amount, and prioritise aesthetics over aerodynamics.

Lotus Exige Sport 410 priced from $159,990

Lotus Cars Australia has confirmed it will offer the Exige Sport 410 Down Under, priced from $159,990 before on-road costs. The version headed Down Under will adopt a "slightly altered specification" compared to the vehicle revealed in May, however. Aussie Exige Sport 410's will get sports seats like the ones in the Exige Sport 350, rather than the carbon-fibre racing buckets standard overseas, though the latter will be available as an option.
