New Audi RS4, Mazda MX-5 SEMA concepts, Tokyo and kangaroos – Car news in 90 seconds

It’s time for this week’s car news in 90 seconds and there’s been plenty to get our teeth into over the last few days. The 2015 Tokyo Motor Show went off with a bang, lifting the lid on some fantastic new concept cars that look set to shape the production cars of the future. We’re looking ahead to something very special that’s brewing at the SEMA show in Las Vegas and Felipe Massa has been testing the Jaguar C-X75 that stars in James Bond’s latest outing Spectre.

And finally; Volvo is developing a safety system to detect and avoid Kangaroos. As we said, it’s all here…

We’re back every week with a new News in 90 Seconds round-up of the top motoring stories from the past seven days so make sure you subscribe to see it first…

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.

Massa drives the Jag C-X75 from Spectre

And finally, it might have been the UK premier of the James Bond film Spectre this week, but the cast aren’t the only ones getting behind the wheels of the film’s cars. Felipe Massa has been trying out the Jaguar C-X75 developed by Williams Engineering over in Mexico and seems to be enjoying himself!

      This is why M cars will always be better than Audi's RS range. It usually takes at least 18 months after the launch of a new model for M division to release their version. Audi on the other hand knock them out straight away thinking more power and a few badges will do the trick
