Chiron could go fastest, but probably won't - Bugatti boss

Bugatti has held the bragging rights of producing the world's fastest production car for most of the 21st century, but new CEO, Stefan Winkelmann, says he doesn't see the speed record as being integral to the future of the brand. Despite having a quad-turbocharged W16 engine making 223kW more than the one in the Veyron Grand Sport, the Chiron is currently pegged to at a lower top speed, with production versions limited to 420km/h.

Bugatti Chiron production set back by awkward doors - report

Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG: Brabus-tuned beast joins Dubai police force

The Dubai police force has a new recruit, a Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG tuned by Brabus. Based on the 400kW/760Nm twin-turbocharged 5.5-litre V8-powered Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG, the Brabus-tuned beast – dubbed the Brabus B63S 700 Widestar – sees power rise another 114kW, creating a genuine 514kW, body-on-frame performance off-roader.
