Jaguar F-Type rally convertibles unveiled

Jaguar has modified a pair of F-Type convertibles for rallying, as it looks to celebrate the XK120's rally exploits during the 1950s. The rally-ready F-Type convertibles have new front and rear grooved brakes with four-piston calipers, hand-built competition dampers with three-way adjustment, a limited-slip differential, and a hydraulic hand brake for those hairpin bends. As you can probably see from the pictures, it'll happily emulate the leaping cat stuck on its rear three-quarter panel.

Mercedes-Benz C300 Hybrid, C350e recalled

Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall for the C300 BlueTec Hybrid and C350e plug-in hybrid due to a wiring issue. The German luxury marque reports the diesel-electric and petrol-electric (respectively) variants could have an incorrectly-routed electric line in the engine bay, which could chafe on a reinforcement strut while the vehicle is being operated. If the condition occurs, the chafing line could cause a short circuit and start a fire, posing a hazard to occupants of the vehicle.

Ford patents method for removing new car smell

Ford has a filed a patent application for an automated new-car-smell removal method, designed to make your brand-new vehicle smell less, well, new. According to the company's filing with the US Patent and Trademark Office, new car smell is caused by volatile organic compounds (VOCs) given off by leather, plastic and vinyl materials in a car's interior. Adhesives, sealants and glass cleaners may also contribute to the odour.
