2018 DS 7 Cross spied testing

A heavily-disguised prototype believed to be the new DS 7 Cross SUV has been spied this week during cold weather testing. The swathes of black-and-white camouflage don't give much away in terms of the vehicle's design, but we can make out the general proportions, raised ride height and chunky bumpers common to SUVs. The disguise is so heavy you can't even see the head- or tail-lights clearly - DS is definitely trying to keep the DS 7 Cross's design under wraps (if you'll forgive the pun).

McLaren 650S successor revealed in 'leaked' photo

A single, show-all photo of the new supercar known to its engineers as the P14 and in the press as the McLaren 720S, has surfaced online today. Although reports are describing the photo above as a leak, the presence of snap-happy guests in the background suggests McLaren isn't too fussed about its new second-generation Super Series car appearing early. Very early, in fact, with the new car's official Geneva motor show debut still some six weeks away.

Ford resisted Mustang testing, ANCAP alleges: A deep-dive into this week’s shocking two-star crash test result

ANCAP says it unsuccessfully attempted to secure Ford Mustangs to crash test on several occasions, before encouraging its European sister organisation Euro NCAP to pick up the baton. The result was the sensational and “shocking” two-star result announced for the GT Fastback this week, which Euro NCAP alleges came about because Ford did not expect — and therefore did not design — the Mustang to be tested outside of America, which has different testing regimes.
