Bentley Bentayga V8 brakes are largest, most powerful on a series production car

The standard brakes on the Bentley Bentayga V8 aren't what you'd call 'small'. The steel rotors measure 400mm up front, gripped by six-piston calipers from Brembo. According to Bentley Bentayga product line director, Peter Guest, the package was approved after an exhaustive development process. "Long before we settled on this system, we got through many, many pad combinations and other stuff to get to where we were happy with the braking performance of the standard brakes," Guest said.

Holden recalls 333,000 cars with Takata airbags

Holden has announced an enormous 333,000 vehicles are to be recalled in Australia as part of the ever-widening Takata airbag scandal, the largest automotive recall in history. Vehicles including the Astra, Trax, Barina, Cruze and Cascada, plus the Opel Mokka and Zafira, and Saab 9-3 and 9-5, are affected. The Australia-made Commodore is not. Holden has pointed out that none of its vehicles are fitted with the oldest Takata 'alpha' airbags determined as the biggest risk.
