2020 Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ revealed

Earlier this year, Bugatti once again broke the record for the fastest road car. Andy Wallace took a modified Chiron past 300mph (482km/h) to a record 304.77mph (490.48km/h) at the Ehra-Lessien test track in Germany. To celebrate, Bugatti is producing 30 versions of the monumental prototype, fittingly called the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+. It’s making its official debut at this month’s Frankfurt Motor Show and Bugatti has confirmed the price tag is a cool €3.5 million (A$5.6 million).

An investigation conducted by the audit committee tasked with finding out and detailing the crimes and misdemeanours of former CEO Carlos Ghosn and former board member Greg Kelly has unearthed evidence of an improper payment to Saikawa back in 2013, when he was an executive vice president.

Volkswagen Amarok and Ford Ranger likely to miss out on electrification

It's no secret Ford and Volkswagen are co-developing commercial vehicles, including the next-generation Amarok and Ranger dual-cab utes. Ford is responsible for the medium-sized pickup truck, while Volkswagen is leading development of small vans. The two companies are also signed up to share Volkswagen's MEB platform. Hot on the heels of the ID.3 reveal in Frankfurt, a Volkswagen board member revealed the entire VW range will be electrified by 2025... not including the Amarok.

Mitsubishi not planning Ford Ranger Raptor rival

Mitsubishi says it has no plans to introduce a rival to the Ford Ranger Raptor ute – or mount a counterattack with a high-powered turbo diesel V6 even though it has access to one thanks to the recent alliance with Nissan-Renault. Ford and Volkswagen are expected to have turbo-diesel V6 power as part of their next generation pickups due within a few years from now, and Toyota is on record as saying it wants to make up for the HiLux’s power deficit.
