Lamborghini thinking of four-seat sports car, and a Miura successor

Lamborghini is mulling over new ways to expand its range of sports cars, with a four-seat vehicle and a modern take on the Miura possible. Stefano Domenicali, CEO of Lamborghini, told attendees at the Automotive News Europe congress the company is "already thinking about" a four-seat sports car. If that's got you itching to call up your bank manager, he warned any possible four-seat Lamborghini sports car wouldn't materialise until the "2025 to 2030 horizon".

2018 Ford Mustang safety not on local boss’s mind yet

When a two-star ANCAP crash score was announced for the Ford Mustang earlier this year, many of us expected that there would be major consumer recoil. But there hasn’t been. The Ford Mustang just saw its best month ever in Australia, with a huge 1351 units sold, and it is easily the highest-selling sports car in the country at this point in time, with 3772 units sold to the end of May 2017.

Peugeot Pick Up: Rebadged Chinese ute to go on sale in Africa

The new Peugeot Pick Up sees the French brand return to the world of rough-and-ready utes, although only for the African market. The Pick Up marks a return to the African ute market, which Peugeot exited when Nigeria stopped producing the 504 pickup in 2005, and is basically a Dongfeng Rich ute with a new grille, and a tailgate emblazoned with the Peugeot brand. Given the fact that Dongfeng has owned around 13 per cent of Peugeot since 2014, this tie up makes easy corporate sense.
