Land Rover and its performance partner Bowler have started a new one-make rally series for the iconic Defender. The series, which looks like a lot of fun, is billed as a feeder series to train up-and-coming drivers for the Dakar rally and other rally raid-style events.
Video of a 2014 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 lapping the Nürburgring has hit the web. It shows the car needs about 7:40 to complete a lap, which makes it slower than the Camaro Z/28 but faster than the Camaro ZL1.
You'll find all of this and more in today's car news headlines from around the High Gear Media network, right here at Motor Authority.
