Volkswagen ID. R sets Goodwood Hillclimb record

Volkswagen's all-electric ID. R has smashed the record time up the Goodwood Hillclimb, cutting 1.7 seconds from the time set by Nick Heidfeld in a 1998 McLaren Formula 1 car. Driven by Romain Dumas, the ID. R is the first car ever to complete the climb in less than 40 seconds. The hillclimb record comes after the ID. R set a new marker for electric cars around the Nurburgring Nordschleife, knocking 40 seconds from the existing EV record.

De Tomaso P72 unveiled

The De Tomaso P72 has been unveiled at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Although the new car has been named in honour of the 1965 P70 racing car, the P72 has a modern carbon-fibre chassis borrowed from the Apollo IE. Both Apollo and De Tomaso were brought together under common ownership in 2014. The company says the P72's design "focuses on [bringing the] timeless beauty and timeless proportions of the ’60s Le Mans prototype vehicles into the modern era".
