Ford testing 'autonomous' food delivery in Miami

Ford has teamed up with Postmates to test a self-driving food truck in Miami, in an attempt to better understand how people interact with unmanned delivery vehicles. When we say unmanned, we mean vehicles that appear unmanned.

2018 Ford Shelby Mustang Super Snake unveiled

The tease is over, and the 2018 Ford Shelby Super Snake has been revealed in the USA, packing a supercharged 5.0-litre V8 making up to 597kW (800hp) of power. That's right, 597kW, good for a 60mph (97km/h) run of just 3.5 seconds. If that's a bit much snake for you to handle, there's also a 710hp (529kW) tune available, although we'd question the logic of buying a high-end muscle car and not optioning the most powerful engine...

Kia Stinger GT drags Ford Mustang GT - video

Mustang or Stinger? Four doors or two doors? Twin-turbo V6 power, or naturally-aspirated V8 power? They're all good questions, and they're all answered by the video you're about to watch. Although the Mustang has a purer bloodline when it comes to drag racing, and it's a more natural sports car than the Stinger, the two are quite closely matched...
