For a multi-million dollar limited-production hypercar, the Bugatti Chiron has sure been struck by quite a few recalls recently, including one due to the faulty stability control system that also affects the Chiron Sport and Divo.

The Chiron Sport hasn’t been included in the latest safety recall conducted in cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), but the ‘regular’ Chiron and the Divo have, as both models were made with potentially faulty driveshafts.

Review: Bugatti Divo Is Faster Than The Chiron, Yet As Easy To Drive As A Golf

The recall affects only 4 cars, with a 4 percent estimated defect rate). The Chiron was made on July 24 and the Divos between August 21 and October 23, 2020. The problem is blamed on the supplier, Germany’s CP Tech GmbH, as “the material strength of the rear-left drive shaft is found to not be within the acceptable specification tolerance”.

Under “certain hard-driving conditions”, the driveshaft could fail without any prior warning, and if it breaks, then some parts could detach from the car, which would pose a road hazard to vehicles and/or pedestrians. If the component fails, then the gearbox and engine lights will flicker in the instrument cluster, and the Bugatti will enter the so-called ‘Limp Mode’.

Bugatti will replace all defective driveshafts with new ones and will cover the repair and logistics costs. The planned dealer and owner notification for this recall was November 30, and those who have not heard from Bugatti can contact them at 1-703-826-7545 using the recall number BUGCR032.

Police in New York have revealed that a 12-year-old boy embarked on an ambitious 100-mile joyride in his parents’ Range Rover Evoque with his 7-year-old cousin in the passenger seat.

Authorities report that the 12-year-old drove the Range Rover from his home on 115th Street in South Ozone Park, Queens, across the Verrazzano Bridge and into New Jersey at around 11 a.m. on December 8.

Shortly after crossing into New Jersey, state troopers flashed their lights and sirens to try and get the boy to pull over but he sped off. They opted against pursuing the Range Rover for the safety of the children. CBS Local reports that at 2:15 pm that same day, the boy tried using his dad’s credit card to buy cookies at a rest stop near the Delaware border. The 12-year-old and his cousin were taken into custody shortly after.

The duo were brought to the New York Police Department’s 106th precinct on Monday night. They were soon released to their family and taken home without facing any charges. The boy reportedly told the police the joy ride was part of a social media challenge to drive a vehicle until it runs out of gas.

“The kids are OK. They’re OK,” Joe Gangaram, the boy’s uncle told local media. “I thank the precinct for doing a good job. Everybody’s fine.”

 

新一代 Toyota Harrier 自從今年 6 月於日本首發後,憑著五代 RAV4 加上休旅熱潮,現在可是日本銷售榜大紅人,隨著全球瘋休旅程度,海外近來曝光新一代 Harrier 專利申報圖,表示它即將進軍各地市場。

新一代 Harrier 在日本正紅,上個月交車數達 9,897 輛,位居銷售榜第 4 名。〈圖為原廠申報專利圖。〉

曾是日本限定的 Harrier,隨著大改款與五代 RAV4 共用 TNGA 平台,成為血緣濃厚的親戚關係,即將進軍全球各地市場。Harrier 用料、設計更為講究,被譽為 RAV4 的高級款,在日本當地相當暢銷,當時 Toyota 替 Harrier 訂下一個月 3,100 台的銷售目標,結果當時 1 個月,居然超過月販售目標的 10 倍以上,目前預估需要 1 年才能消化今年訂單。

外型與日規相同,估計內裝鋪陳應同樣比照辦理。

如今這股熱潮將吹向其他市場,海外近來曝光 Harrier 申報專利圖,從圖樣來看,外觀與日規大同小異,車身尺碼為 4,740x1,855x1,660mm 長寬高,軸距為 2,690mm。

內室用料比 RAV4 更高級,風格質感倒是與 Lexus 相近,日規 Harrier 配有 Lexus 招牌的大螢幕,但只支援螢幕觸控,將傳統按鍵精簡化,大多車輛功能均能在螢幕上設定,並具備原廠導航圖資,也可將畫面獨立、顯示分割,但中央鞍座並無 Remote Touch 觸控板設計。

新 Harrier 還有數位後視鏡、智慧型天窗等這些科技配備。
