Mercedes-Benz has updated its E-Class, and the updates extend to the E53 and E63 from Mercedes-AMG. We've just tested the E53 and find it to deliver a satisfying balance of power, sportiness, and luxury.

Volkswagen will take the wraps off a redesigned Golf R very soon. We'll see it on sale next year and VW has confirmed it will be the most powerful model in the history of the Golf nameplate.

Washington-based SSC North America last month claimed that its Tuatara hypercar made an average speed of 316.11 mph over two runs. For reasons that remain unclear, the information from GPS satellites tracking the run can't be verified so to end any doubt SSC will make a second attempt.
