The motoring world took a deep breath this week to recover from the Paris motor show - but that doesn't mean there hasn't been plenty to keep us occupied at autocar.co.uk.
The week started with one of the fastest cars on the planet going relatively slowly. We've followed the Caparo T1 with interest and enthusiasm, while simultaneously wondering if it might ever make it off the drawing board. It did exactly that earlier this week, when its creators gave it its first shakedown test.
Industry-wise, the big news came on Thursday, when it emerged that General Motors and Renault-Nissan were calling off talks about an alliance. It seems they couldn't agree on the value of any deal - but the collapse of discussions leaves GM out on a limb once again.
Autumn is well and truly with us - you can tell that because manufacturers are wheeling out the special editions and cut-price offers to shift stock pre-Christmas. VW reckons a third of all Golfs sold will be variants of its Match special edition, while Honda has knocked £2000 off old-model CR-Vs as its builds up to the new model's arrival in January.
Look out next week for some great video on autocar.co.uk, including Volvo's chunky-but-cute C30 and Alfa Romeo's stunning 8C Competizione on the road.
