First car ever to get a speeding fine, heading to UK Concours of Elegance

The first car to ever receive a speeding fine - according to one claim, at least - will be on display at the 2017 Concours of Elegance in the UK. In 1896, the Arnold Benz Motor Carriage was estimated to be speeding at four times the limit, at a blistering 8mph (13km/h), when a policeman on a bicycle pulled him over.

Honda Australia hoping for a large SUV and ute, but chances are slim

The two models we’re talking about are the Pilot large SUV and the Ridgeline pick-up/ute, both of which aren’t built in right-hand drive. The market in North America is big enough to sustain both of them, just in left-hand drive.
