2021 Honda Odyssey facelift launches in Japan

The current-generation Honda Odyssey has just passed seven years on sale globally – a full model-cycle for most brands, but in this instance it’s just hit its mid-life update. While not strictly the middle of its expected model-run, the 2021 Honda Odyssey arrives as a second update for the model, with a more comprehensive rework than the last 2017 update.

Lego Creator’s Ghostbusters ECTO-1 kit: $300 supersized kit in Australia from November 15

Ghostbusters fans, before you make a definitive decision as to the merits of Ghostbusters: Afterlife – set for release in 2021 – stop and consider this: without the new movie, there would probably be no new ECTO-1 kit from Lego. While it isn’t the first Lego kit honouring the 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance that took a starring role in the original 1984 Ghostbusters film, this new version is by far the most detailed.

Lamborghini Huracan filmed driving through tropical storm waters in Florida

A Lamborghini Huracan Spyder has been captured on camera attempting to traverse rising flood waters in Florida amid a tropical storm. The owner of the yellow Huracan, which is priced from $429,000 before on-road costs in Australia, wasn't quite prepared to find themselves caught in a torrential downpour while on the road in Miami during the Tropical Storm Eta. Rather than trying to pull off the road, the driver decided to plough on – causing water to surge up and over the car's bonnet.

Flying car actually flies: KleinVision AirCar completes flight tests

The Slovakian KleinVision AirCar has just passed its first flight tests at Nitra Airport in Slovakia, and in doing so, successfully completed the transition from ground driving mode, to flying and back again. Weighing in at 1100kg, the AirCar is powered by a 104kW 1.6-litre BMW engine and has an estimated range of 1000km, with a maximum cruising speed of around 200km/h. The AirCar requires a runway of just 300m to take off – where, for context, a Cessna 172 light aircraft needs almost 500m.
