Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid all but ruled out for Australia

The chance of the innovative Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid ever being sold Australia are fading fast, despite the Scandinavian brand showcasing a sporty new R-Design version of the diesel-electric wagon destined for Europe. The Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid R-Design gets a more stylish look than the standard version, with a sports aero kit and 18-inch alloy wheels differentiating it from the outside, while the interior gains sports seats trimmed in perforated leather and a black headlining.

2015 Ford Mustang Convertible tops Empire State Building to mark 50th anniversary

A 2015 Ford Mustang Convertible is now on display 305m (1000 feet) into the Manhattan sky, atop the 86th floor observation deck of New York's Empire State Building. Celebrating 50 years since the iconic pony car first went on sale, the process of getting the new Ford Mustang onto the famous 443-metre-tall sky scraper's open-air deck mirrors a task first completed in 1965 with a prototype of the original Ford Mustang Convertible – a car 180mm shorter and 100mm narrower.
