2019/20 Hyundai Sonata, Kia Cerato tow bar wiring harness recalled

Hyundai and Kia have issued a recall for the tow bar wiring harness sold through official dealers and fitted to the Sonata and Cerato. Due to incorrect wiring, the faulty tow bar wiring harness might not allow the trailer hazard lights to flash when the car is turned off. If the hazards aren't operating correctly, there's a risk other road users mightn't see a stopped or slowing car, increasing the risk of accident. The original recall advertisement is attached here.

Tesla Model X tows Boeing 787 Dreamliner - Video

Avid motoring enthusiasts probably remember Volkswagen towing a Boeing 747 with a diesel V10 Touareg. People saw diesel very differently in 2008, and the 747 was still alive and kicking. Now, Tesla and Qantas have teamed up for a more up-to-date take on the same stunt. The tow car in the video is a Model X P100D, and the plane is the latest Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, carrying a "small amount of fuel on board" but no passengers.

Porsche tows its way to a new Nurburgring record

The race to set Nurburgring records reached fever pitch this year, with a glut of attempts (successful or otherwise) from manufacturers desperate to prove their sports car mettle. Porsche was among the crowd of new record holders, but its latest attempt makes the GT2 RS lap look a bit, well, conventional. A Panamera Sport Turismo towing a classic Porsche Junior 108 tractor has lapped the legendary North Loop in 12:06, topping out at 180 km/h in the process.
