26 Sep 2016: McLaren Automotive has already revealed that one of the key strategies of its TRACK 22 business plan is the development of a Pure Electric Vehicle (or EV) to one day sit in its Ultimate Series. Meanwhile a Pure EV based on today's McLaren P1(r) is now available but only to a limited group of potential customers ... those under the age of six. At least that's the official guidance. The diminutive McLaren P1(r) differs from its larger brother in two important areas. Firstly, it has a central driving position, just like the iconic McLaren F1. Then secondly, the young will be able to experience what adults never could: an open-top McLaren P1(r). Yet cleverly the design still retains McLaren's signature dihedral doors. And like every McLaren, its acceleration is startling. The zero to maximum speed dash takes just two seconds.
26 Sep 2016: The 66th edition of the Hannover International Motor Show, the biggest European exhibition of commercial and industrial vehicles, takes place from 22nd to 29th September. The event gathers professionals and major vehicle manufacturers together, including Fiat Professional, in the German city. In Hannover, Fiat Professional is displaying its entire line-up of commercial vehicles. After being completely refreshed in just two years, today the brand is capable of responding to all professional needs by covering 97% of the market. All body types are offered; loading capacities and volumes; a complete choice of wheelbases widths and height variants, in addition to high-efficiency engines and various fuel options. Fiat Professional is also focussing on passenger transport and vehicle conversions. This sector includes shuttles, assisted mobility, mobile workshops, vehicles with cargo beds, vehicles insulated or fitted with cold storage compartments, motorhomes for leisure time and public administration vehicles. In brief, any professional activity or mobility need can be satisfied by Fiat Professional vehicle conversions, as demonstrated by the collaboration with the major European outfitters.

26 Sep 2016: Another eagerly anticipated chapter in the Nissan GT-R success story has begun, with the arrival of the GT-R Track Edition. As the name implies, it's been specifically engineered for thrill-seeking track enthusiasts by the dedicated team at NISMO - Nissan's motorsport division. Designed to deliver a higher level of performance than the standard GT-R, it is priced from £91,995. The Nissan GT-R Track Edition sits above the Premium, Prestige and Black Edition in the model line-up, but below the flagship GT-R NISMO. Performance modifications to further improve the dynamic experience include bespoke Bilstein Damptronic(r) suspension. A race-tuned set-up, this is designed to optimise straight-line and cornering stability. A new lightweight anti-roll bar has also been added to increase body stiffness and reduce weight.
26 Sep 2016: At this year's Paris Motor Show, which opens its doors to media this Thursday (public show days 1 to 16 October), SEAT will reveal a unique stand concept, which is set to deliver a completely different brand experience to anything that has ever gone before. The Spanish brand will be displaying a surprising new stand format made up of two distinct spaces. Firstly, an interactive 4D amphitheatre where a continuous press conference will be held every 30 minutes, together with a car configurator that uses BitBrain technology to configure the SEAT Ateca that best suits users' emotions. And secondly, an informal outdoor area designed for socialising, including a press centre and chill-out zone, among others, so that visitors can live and breathe the brand. The 'Created in Barcelona' theme will also feature prominently across SEAT's spaces in Paris, highlighting qualities such as innovation, technology and urban design, all values shared by the car manufacturer itself and its home city of Barcelona.
