Audi has teased an upcoming racing concept, complete with an aggressive aerodynamics package and pure-electric power. The Vision GT will be joining the Gran Turismo Sport video game roster on April 9, following on from similar virtual concepts from the likes of Subaru, Citroen and Bugatti. Graphics on the aero-style wheels reveal the car will draw on e-tron electric power, while the 'quattro' graphics indicate it will be all-wheel drive.

Lamborghini to stick with naturally-aspirated engines, prefers hybrid to turbo

Lamborghini would rather go down the path of hybrid powertrains to maintain the emotional appeal of its engine noise, rather than following everyone else with their turbocharged V8s. Speaking to the CarAdvice at the Geneva motor show this week, Lamborghini chief technical officer, Maurizio Reggiani, admitted the company was forced to go turbo in the Urus, but said the Huracan and Aventador replacements will be naturally aspirated for as long as possible.

Goodyear reveals prototype EV tyres

Goodyear has used the Geneva motor show to unveil a prototype tyre developed specifically for use with electric vehicles. The EfficientGrip Performance is designed to cater for an ever-growing range of battery-powered vehicles. According to Goodyear, tyres on electric cars can wear up to 30 per cent faster than rubber on internal-combustion vehicles. Why? Instant torque from the electric motors and extra weight from the batteries, apparently.

10 Geneva concepts we wish made production

Now the biggest, boldest concepts from the 2018 Geneva motor show have been revealed, and space has been made in dream garages for Supras, Lagondas, and M8 Gran Coupes, we cast a nostalgic eye back on some of the most memorable concepts from the last 20 years. These are the cars we believe should have earned a place in product portfolios from their respective manufacturers. Some were simply too fanciful to ever get a look in, while others fell to the might of a beancounter’s red pen.

Ford Ranger, Econovan, Courier added to Takata recall

Ford has recalled the 2004-06 Courier, 2004-05 Econovan and 2006-11 Ranger as part of the ongoing Takata airbag campaign. According to the Ford, all the vehicles involved in the recall are fitted with the less dangerous 'Beta' inflators. If affected vehicles are involved in an accident and the airbag is activated, the driver and passenger inflators could rupture, causing metal fragments to shoot into the cabin. Occupants are at risk of serious injury, even death if the fault occurs.
