Jaguar will produce a 'limited run' of Ian Callum's Jaguar Mk. II
Ian Callum, Jaguar's director of design, sought the assistance of renowned restorers Classic Motor Cars Limited when he wanted to design himself a unique Jag for his own personal use. The resulting car turned out to be gorgeous, and the response has been so overwhelming that CMC decided to knock out a special limited line of them. Ian Callum was surprised at the news: “I have been both astounded and delighted with the response. I am pleased that a few more cars are going to be built.” Prices will range from £350,000 to £375,000.
Euro NCAP have released their latest test results
This selection of crash tests includes the Mercedes-Benz GLA mini-SUV, the Citroen Berlingo mini-MPV, the Renault Twingo and Toyota Aygo. The Aygo and Twingo were awarded four stars, falling short only in the safety assist systems category. The GLA successfully matched its rival, the BMW X1, with a five star score, doing well in all four of the NCAP's categories. The Citroen Berlingo, however, failed to adequately protect passengers in the front seat, and so only picked up three stars.
