Rolls-Royce 'Sweptail' one-off debuts in Italy

The one-off Rolls-Royce 'Sweptail' was unveiled over the weekend at the Concorso d’Eleganza at Villa d’Este. According to Rolls-Royce, the history of the Sweptail commission began in 2013 when a "connoisseur and collector of distinctive, one-off items including super-yachts and private aircraft" came to the company with an idea for a bespoke luxury coupe.

Rolls-Royce 'Project Cullinan' SUV coming in 2019

The upcoming Rolls-Royce SUV, dubbed 'Project Cullinan' has been confirmed for a 2019 debut, the company has revealed. While the British luxury marque refuses to call it something as pedestrian as an SUV - rather referring to it as an "all-terrain, high-sided vehicle" - the new Rolls-Royce will aim to become the most opulent and desirable high-riding vehicle on sale when it launches sometime during 2019.

EVs to be cheaper than regular cars by 2025, study finds

Tumbling battery prices will see the cost of electric vehicles (EVs) drop below their internal combustion (ICEs) rivals within a decade, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. The tipping point would see arguments for buying EVs and plug-in hybrids (PHEV) no longer relying on cheaper running costs or green credentials alone, but instead on entry price.

Volkswagen Group's allegedly autocratic former culture proving hard to change

Volkswagen Group CEO Matthias Mueller has admitted that the near-autocratic corporate structures that lied about diesel emissions and shattered the company's reputation is proving hard to break apart. A report from Reuters this week, run by Automotive News Europe, contained some remarkably frank quotes from the former Porsche AG chief, who was appointed Group chief shortly after the diesel scandal broke in September 2015.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS Lego crash test is weirdly satisfying

German automotive organisation, ADAC (equivalent of NRMA, RACQ or RACV), has performed a crash test on the Porsche 911 GT3 RS Lego Technic set, and it is sensational - not least because you're unlikely to see a real 911 crash-tested anytime soon. The three-minute video starts with a short time-lapse of the build, followed by setting up the ill-fated Porsche on a remote-controlled mini conveyor belt, with a glimpse of the crash wall ahead.
