Maserati is out testing the new mechanical package for a redesigned GranTurismo and is using a makeshift Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio body to keep prying eyes away. A reveal will happen later this year but sales will likely only start sometime in 2022.

Volkswagen will reveal a spiritual successor to the Microbus in 2022 and a few years later enlist it in an automated taxi service. The new van was previewed by 2017's ID.Buzz concept and the latest teaser sketch likely hints at the production version.

The United Kingdom's Bloodhound project may have come to a halt but there's another team aiming to reach 1,000 mph in a steerable car, and in the process set a new land speed record. The speed to beat is the 763.035 mph set in 1997.
