AutoComplete: Range Rover Sport HST goes turbo straight-six
Here's what's making news on Road Show.
The Range Rover Sport is always pretty decent in any of it's myriad forms, but now it's about to get a lot better thanks to a new six cylinder engine laid out in that most noble arrangements in line.
Yep, the new Ranger Sport is getting a turbo charged straight six with an electric supercharger tied to a 48 volt mild hybrid system.
This thing is gonna be awesome.
And we can't wait to give it a rip.
Say what you will about the Mini Cooper and its ever-expanding belt line.
But the hot versions are usually pretty good.
And, in the world of Mini, nothing is hotter than the John Cooper Works GP.
Dang it, we're getting a new one.
This tiny-ish terror will pack an excess of 300 horsepower from the factory and enough aerobics to make a DTM car proud.
Mini is only going to build 3,000 of these, and we're betting they'll not be cheap, so start annoying your dealer now if you want one.
Ford is the latest manufacturer to get visited by the hated recall fairy.
This time the recall is for something called transmission whiplash, which we're guessing isn't the automotive-themed remake of the JK Simmons film we've always dreamed of.
Anyway, upwards of 1.5 million F-150 models are affected but thankfully, fixing the issue only requires a software update that can be done at your friendly local Ford dealer.
