Maserati is testing the new mechanical package for a redesigned GranTurismo, using a makeshift Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio body to keep prying eyes away. A reveal will be released later this year, but sales are unlikely to begin until sometime in 2022.
Volkswagen will present a spiritual successor to the Microbus in 2022 and include it in an automated taxi service a few years later. The new van was introduced by the ID.Buzz concept in 2017 and the latest teaser sketch probably hints at the production version.
The UK’s Bloodhound project may have stalled, but there is another team aiming to get 1,000 miles per hour in a steerable car, setting a new country speed record in the process. The hitting speed is the 763,035 mph set in 1997.
