Ford's new brake warning can "see" through traffic and around corners
Chevrolet has released the official performance figures for the new Corvette Stingray. Cars equipped with the ZR1 performance pack, which is standard on UK models, can acheive a claimed 3.8sec 0-60mph and generate 1.03g in corners. Braking from 60mph takes 107 feet.
Volkswagen tuner Revo has set a new Nürburgring lap record for a commercial vehicle. The firm's 220bhp remapped 2.0-litre twin turbo Transporter T5 set a time of 9 minutes 57 seconds, beating Sabine Schmitz’s record of 10 minutes 8 seconds set in a Ford Transit.
Ford is developing a car-to-car warning system that alerts the driver when vehicles ahead are braking. “Electronic Brake Light”, which transmits a signal that lights up a warning sign on the car’s dashboard, can work through traffic and even around corners.
