Land Rover Defender Works V8 revealed

Land Rover has taken the wraps off a very special creation this week - the Defender Works V8 - as part of its 70th birthday celebrations. Featuring a 297kW/515Nm 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine under the bonnet, the special-edition model is both the most powerful and fastest Defender ever made - it can even sprint from 0-60mph (0-96km/h) in just 5.6 seconds. Top speed is rated at 170km/h (106mph).

Lexus small electrified crossover taking shape, CT hatch on the outer

The CT200h is Lexus’ smallest car, and also its only vehicle sold exclusively with a petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain. Yet its global sales haven’t been spectacular, with the key US market even dropping the model for 2018.
