An extraordinarily rare 1986 Ford RS200 Evolution is currently up for sale and perfect for anyone who is a fan of the iconic Group B rally era.

Ford unveiled the car in 1984 to meet FIA Group B racing homologation requirements. Just 146 examples were produced for the road, and of them, a mere 24 are the hugely-desirable Evolution variant. This one is chassis 106 and, according to Canepa, could be the finest example ever produced.

Chassis 106 was custom-tailored to its first owner and painted white with a fully-trimmed interior that includes a suede-wrapped MOMO steering wheel. As if that wasn’t enough, this car’s 2.1-liter turbocharged engine develops approximately 600 hp, roughly 100 hp more than a standard Evolution thanks to a ported Mk II head, larger turbocharger, IMSA-spec intercooler, cockpit adjustable boost dial, and a 4-inch rally exhaust system.

Despite the upgrades Ford made at the factory, the original owner wanted more performance and sent the engine to Brian Hart Limited in the UK for further tuning. With a new ECU and some other modifications, output was lifted to 704 hp at 8,000 rpm and 535 lb-ft (725 Nm) of torque at 5,550 rpm.

The original owner sold the car in 2003 and it has since been restored with the cosmetics given a fresh new finish and the chassis and mechanical components being meticulously overhauled. Later on during the car’s life, Canepa worked extensively on improving its streetability, as well as the engine, so it now delivers 615 hp and 510 lb-ft (691 Nm) but has a better power and torque curve.

The all-electric Volkswagen ID.4 is the automaker’s first-ever electric SUV and is also expected to be the best selling model in the ID family. This clip from YouTuber Bjørn Nyland gives us an up-close look at the EV just a few weeks after it was unveiled.

Underpinning the ID.4 is VW’s module electric drive architecture (MEB) with power provided by a single electric motor driving the rear axle and producing 201 hp and 228 lb-ft (309 Nm) of torque. This motor is fed by an 82 kWh battery pack that is positioned in the underbody. In the United States, the SUV has an estimated driving range of 250 miles (402 km).

Much of this video is focused on the cabin of the ID.4, which is quite a bit larger than the smaller ID.3 hatchback. Key features include a prominent Head-Up Display, a larger infotainment screen than the ID.3, and an electronic tailgate. The reviewer notes that the cabin offers ample space for five adults, while one of the rear seats can be used to support a rear-facing child seat.

While the ID.4 is initially only available with a single, rear-mounted electric motor, a variant with two electric motors delivering 302 hp and all-wheel drive is just around the corner.

All Volkswagen ID.4 models come with an 11 kW onboard charger that allows for both AC and DC fast-charging. When plugged in to a 125 kW DC fast-charging station, the ID.4’s battery can go from five to 80 per cent in 38 minutes.

 

Road safety is very important not only for the regular passenger vehicles, but for the big rigs too, like Scania’s new electric truck, which was recently subjected to a crash test.

Normally, these tests are carried out using barriers and poles designed to replicate the impact with another car. However, in this instance, the side barrier was replaced by an actual car: a Volkswagen Golf.

The Mk7 Golf was chosen because the engineers wanted “the crash test to be as authentic as possible”, said Scania’s chief of Mechanical Testing, Mikael Littmann. “We use a real car for the impact, as that puts a lot more stress on the structure than if we’d used a barrier.”

Despite being over in less than a second, the test took months of precision planning. They got all the details just right and then ran numerous computer simulations at different speeds and angles. “The actual crash test is ultimately only to confirm that our calculations were accurate”, Scania’s Research and Development test engineer Jakob Leygraf explained.

In this scenario, they replicated what happens to the battery when a vehicle hits it head-on. The impact energy has to be distributed and spread throughout the structure that surrounds the battery. Firefighters stood by just in case, but ultimately, everything went on as planned, there were no fires and the battery emerged unscathed.
