But as they say, you don’t get something for nothing, and so it is here. To get the 575 to handle like a car half its size, the adaptive suspension is set up to be a little on the firm side. The result is an awkwardly inconsistent ride, with the 575 jittering over cracked road surfaces and the occasional expansion joint. Both the Mercedes-AMG S63 and BMW M760Li work far better as continent-crushing luxo-barges.
The two M Sport models both sit on 19in alloy wheels and include unique bumpers and paintwork, as well as heated front seats. The M Sport and M Sport X are inspired by circuit racing and rallying respectively. Both trims receive stiffer M Sport suspension and have a lowered ride height.
With the £5,995 Huntsman Accessory Pack added on, the D-Max Utah Double Cab manual comes in at £36,115 while the automatic version will cost £37,315.
Spy shots also suggest that the car is ready for its full unmasking. The car pictured earlier this year is disguised heavily, but that doesn’t hide the new shape, strongly influenced by the QX50 Concept. As such, the final production model seems likely to take on many of its design cues with little or no change.
The Shelby GT350 and its R-rated twin were revived by Ford in 2016, almost 50 years after retirement. They immediately transcended Mustang performance and earned a spot on our 10Best Cars list. Changes for 2017 were minimal but meaningful. Most notably, the Track package became standard on the GT350. It includes an aluminum strut-tower brace, a rear spoiler, adaptive dampers, and coolers for the engine oil, transmission, and Torsen differential. The improved cooling addresses overheating issues some GT350 owners had while driving at the racetrack. Ford also rejiggered the options and paint choices. The Technology package from the previous year became the Electronics package on the GT350; it has Sync 3 infotainment, voice-activated navigation, and a nine-speaker Sony stereo. The new Convenience package had all that, too, but swapped the standard Recaro front buckets for leather-trimmed, power-adjustable seats. The paint colors Ruby Red Metallic, Lightning Blue, and Grabber Blue replaced Deep Impact Blue and Competition Orange for 2017.
This was also an era, don’t forget, when the green brigade began its inagrual march for fuel efficiency. But unlike today, when it's all about downsized engines and hybrid technology, in the late 1980s the buzzword was aerodynamics. And with its thoroughly modern lines and flush-fitting windows, the Cavalier Mk3 boasted a slippery drag coefficient of just 0.29 versus the Mk2’s 0.37. Overnight, it had made every one of its rivals look faintly prehistoric.
In the mid-1960s, Miller was driving home from his Dearborn, Mich., office in a Lincoln Continental when another car struck him from behind. The Continental spun around and burst into flames. Because he was wearing a shoulder-strap seat belt, Miller was unharmed in the accident, and because the doors of the car didn’t jam, he escaped the flaming wreckage. But memories of the crash stayed with him for years.
When winter looms large, it’s vital that your car is in proper working order so that it's capable of dealing with the bad weather and, more importantly, it won't break down. According to research by recovery firms, you're twice as likely to break down in winter months. While that sounds like a good statistic to get people to sign up with these services, there's some things that you can do to ensure it doesn't happen in the first place.
"Before we left, Henry said, 'I want to hire all of you. Just put your name down and how much money you want," Miller recalled in 2003.
