2020 Lamborghini hypercar teased

Lamborghini has provided the world with the first details about its track-only hypercar, which is due to be revealed next year. According to the company, the car will be powered by a naturally-aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine with around 610kW (830hp) of power. It is paired to a six-speed sequential transmission from Xtrac, and a mechanical self-locking differential, which the driver can preload dynamically based on track conditions.

Fully driverless cars ‘aren’t even close’, says Toyota

Futuristic driverless personal cars that can operate safely in rain, hail or shine remain a distant reality, says Toyota. However, autonomous ride-share cars restricted to covering certain areas in certain conditions are a very different story, given they're being prepared for commercial sale inside a decade, and could technically operate today as technology demonstrators with some clever “hacking”.
