Mercedes-AMG: No standalone SUV coming

The Mercedes-AMG performance sub-brand has no plans to develop its own mega-power crossover, arguing such a car would cannibalise existing Mercedes-Benz products. The ever-growing performance division this week launched the new GT 4-Door super-limo, expanding its line-up into the ‘family’ space for the first time. The obvious question is, what’s next? Company boss, Tobias Moers, told us an SUV option wouldn't be given the green light – at least not any time soon.

2007-2010 Holden Captiva diesel recalled

Holden has recalled the 2007-2010 Captiva, over concerns vehicles fitted with the 2.0-litre diesel could catch fire. According to the company, a fracture on the fuel-feed connector hose could make the hose disconnect, causing a fuel leak. If there is a leak, Holden says there's a risk of stalling or an engine bay fire. A total of 22,705 units are affected – a VIN list is attached here. Holden will contact owners of the affected vehicles, and advise them to have their car fixed by a dealer.

Morgan Plus 8 50th and Aero GT revealed

Morgan has waved farewell to the Aero and Plus 8 with the GT and 50th, unveiled this week at the Geneva motor show. Both cars will be put to pasture after these two special-editions are done, ending 50 years of Plus 8 production and 18 years of the Aero. BMW no longer builds the N62 V8 engine used in both models, which means it's time for engine and car to shuffle off to the garage in the sky.

Aston Martin Valkyrie coming to Australia

UPDATE: Turns out the vehicles sold are allocated to Australia and New Zealand as a combined market, with the current sales allocated to New Zealand. Although, the brand says there is a great deal of interest in the Valkyrie for the Australian market. Australia is home to a number of hypercars, but most of them can't be driven on the road. The Aston Martin Valkyrie will be an exception to the rule.
