2019 BMW 3 Series Touring spied with less camouflage

The new BMW 3 Series Touring seems to be close to its full public unveiling, as these latest prototype cars have shed a significant amount of camouflage. Compared to the vehicles spied back in August, the vehicles seen here are completely camouflage-free ahead of the B-pillar. And, in a surprise to no-one, the new wagon is identical to the latest 3 Series sedan from the front doors forward.

Uber self-driving crash has made manufacturers 'cautious' on autonomy

We've seen some bold claims from car manufacturers about their autonomous programs. General Motors wants to deliver a car without pedals or a steering wheel in 2019, while BMW and Ford are targeting 2021 with their self-driving programs. But the push to automation hasn't been smooth – far from it, in fact. Earlier this year, an Uber test vehicle struck and killed a pedestrian in Tempe, Arizona, garnering the attention of media around the world.

McLaren Senna GTR: Downforce, suspension specifics revealed

McLaren has revealed specifics about its upcoming Senna GTR track flagship, offering details about the car's suspension and monstrous aerodynamics package. The Senna GTR will draw on a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine making 607kW and 800Nm, but the headline figure is the 1000kg of downforce it'll make thanks to a revised aerodynamics package. McLaren hasn't confirmed how fast you need to be to actually create those numbers, but we'd suggest the speedo will need to be showing north of 250km/h.

The company is calling on the public to come up with a new brand to encompass both its two new bikes: one a compact model, and the other foldable. GM describes the bikes as "innovative, integrated and connected", but hasn't provided any details about their price, range, weight, recharge time or features.
