The time tested motorcycle company, Triumph, has witnessed a losing streak in this period, issuing three recalls for its products.
Two of the recalls involve the Speed Triple bike, while the third is addressed to the Daytona 675.
Reports indicate that 61 units of the Daytona 675 have an issue with the throttle cable guide that went missing on the assembly line. This problem might make the throttle work improperly, witnessing faulty opening or closing. So if you own one of the affected motorcycles, the guide will be installed for free, and if the throttle cable was damaged, a new one will take its place.
Hamann released new details and photos for the Range Rover Mystere, a model shown in world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show this March.
The main feature of the British SUV is the pink exterior finish while new LED daytime running lights, revised bumpers, s23-inch forged wheels with 305/30/23 tires and front wings are also available.
A new set of side skirts is also offered alongside a new rear spoiler, leather and Alcantara inside, carbon fiber trim, velour floor mats and door sills. A retuned suspension brings the Range Rover closer to the ground by 40mm while the new dampers and shocks improve the ride.
The 2014 Audi Q7 was caught on camera in Spain, revealing what the future holds for the German SUV.
With the official launch being somewhere next summer, the 2014 Audi Q7 will be built in Slovakia, along side the Tuareg and Cayenne.
From what we can glean from the photos, the next generation Q7 will look similar to the V12 TDi version, with slightly wider fenders and shorter overhangs. The word on the internet is that the 2014 Audi Q7 will also come as a plug-in hybrid.
Some cars are so rare and expensive, you just can’t really risk driving them. Even keeping them in a garage might seem abusive, so the best solution is to bring them in the house with you, where you can keep an eye on them.
To do this, you can either take the car apart, and re-assemble it inside, but that is the least desirable option. Most would choose to cut a hole in the wall, bring the car in and then repair the wall.
But there are a certain few that have the know-how, money and ambition to actually build the house around the car. This is exactly what architect Holger Schubert did for his Ferrari 512 BBi.
Over the time, Vespa has made a name for itself, delivering great fun and quality for two wheel machines.
The latest news from the manufacturer concerns the American market, which is set to receive the brand new 2014 Vespa 946.
Canada was first considered as an opening market, but then again, US is just as good a market, so the Italian builder will make the scooter available south of the border, too. Coming this November to American dealers, the 2014 Vespa 946 is a very styling scooter, living up to the standards expected from Vespa.
As a vehicle is getting older and less appealing, car makers often use a trick of the trade to keep it in production just a little longer.
They provide a facelift of the model, adding some minor features and modifications without meddling with the underpinnings too much.
The same is the case with the 2014 Volkswagen Polo, which is set to receive such a treatment. And for being out there for about four years, the changes we can witness so far are not that big. From the spy photos taken of the Polo hatchback, we can see just a restyled front bumper and a smaller antenna.
Right now, Saab is for all intents and purposes, dead. The new owner might be trying to revitalize it, but nothing concrete has been brought to table so far.
Yet, for a car maker that doesn’t really make any cars, Saab has a strong presence in the media these days.
One of the reason for the attention is the incarceration of three, yet undisclosed, former Saab executives. The Sweedish prosecutor Olof Sahlgren says that these three individuals are “suspected of aggravated attempts to avoid tax controls”.
Mitsubishi unveiled a new sedan model designed for the European, U.S. and Asian markets. The new Attrage is very similar to the Mirage hatchback but comes with improved dimensions and more luggage space.
The new model measures 4,095mm and is also inspired by the G4 concept, a prototype seen for the first time at the Bangkok Motor Show.
Power will be provided by a 1.2-liter MIVEC engine capable to return a fuel economy of 4,5 liters/100km (51,7mpg US) when linked to a five-speed manual transmission.
Renault plans to debut the Megane Renaultsport Red Bull Racing RB8 edition in the UK in the coming weeks. The model will be sold in a limited series of 30 units, being the result of partnership between Renaultsport and Red Bull.
The French model wears a special Twilight Blue finish, new alloy wheels, red brake calipers, silver inserts, revised door mirror housings and door handles.

Nissan unveiled a special edition of the GT-R model for the French market. We talk about the Gentleman Edition, a model which is based on the previous Black Edition and comes with a series of styling improvements.
Under the hood sits the same 3.8-liter V6 engine producing 542 horsepower, providing the same performance figures. At the exterior, the Japanese carmaker offers a revised front bumper, a special Grey Squale exterior finish and new badges.
Inside, buyers will get leather inserts with special stitching, red leather upholstery, a new sunglass case and a titanium plaque.
