Kangaroo avoidance tech coming to new Volvos
While we might not really have an issue with kangeroos hopping across the road in the UK, Volvo has been working on technology for the Australian market which will help prevent one of the biggest causes of car collisions on the country’s roads! A fleet of XC90s had the software added utilizing the car’s existing cameras and radars to spot the ‘roos and avoid them!
New Audi RS4 spotted
Audi’s fifth-generation A4 range has only just landed in showrooms, but we’ve spotted the much racier ‘RS’ on the road already. To the untrained eye this might simply look like the S4 Avant, and it does have those badges to throw you off the scent, but look closer and you’ll spot the extended wheel arches featured on the RS models.
Mazda MX-5 Spyder and Speedster teased
Mazda has revealed an image previewing two concepts adapted from the fourth generation MX-5, which will go on display at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. The Speedster and Spyder concepts show what Mazda is calling “vastly different takes” on the roadster.
The Specialty Equipment Market Association trade show has also seen a series of tuned Ford Mustang’s. They generate an incredible 887bhp from the car’s 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine, while also looking suitable for a Fast & Furious film with new bodykits.
