Self-driving Mustang wobbles its way up Goodwood hillclimb - video

We wrote about a self-driving Mustang preparing for the first autonomous run up the hill at Goodwood yesterday. We all had a good laugh about the possibility of it crashing on the big stage, with the world's motoring enthusiasts watching online. Remember that? It was a fun time... Turns out all that laughing and joking was kind of accurate. We're not going to spoil the ending, but suffice to say the Siemens team behind the 1965 Mustang project aren't likely to enjoy watching the footage below.

Jaguar XF joins Takata recall

Jaguar Land Rover Australia has added the first-generation XF (model code X250, pre- and post-facelift) to the ever-growing list of cars included in the Takata airbag recall. As with all cars included in the Takata recall, a combination of heat and humidity can make the airbag propellant degrade over time. Should that happen, the metal inflator housing can rupture when the airbag is activated in a crash, sending metal fragments shooting into the cabin.
