Aston Martin knows what it takes to build a new race car alongside a new road car and now fans can follow this process is a specially-commissioned film. The nine-minute film documents the birth of the Vantage GTE, Aston Martin Racing's brand-new challenger, from initial concept to launch. Aston Martin President and CEO, Dr Andy Palmer said: "We decided to replace the current Vantage road car and - since it's really necessary to take race technology from the track to the road and from the road to the track - it's really important that we design both simultaneously. It's always important that you have a champion and Vantage is our champion." The film covers the 18 months it took to turn a concept into a thoroughbred race car, a car that will take on the might of Ferrari, Porsche, Ford, Corvette and BMW at Le Mans next summer. After completing a successful shakedown in August, the Vantage GTE has so far completed over 14,000kms of testing, in the UK, Spain and at Sebring in the U.S. For the Vantage GTE, the race to be champion has just begun.

It consists of four, 14-spoke Lightweight Forged wheels in Stealth finish, fitted with Pirelli MC Sottozero 3 winter tyres and incorporating the McLaren tyre pressure monitoring system, that were developed especially by McLaren and Pirelli engineers for the McLaren Sports Series family - the 540C, 570S, 570GT and new 570S Spider. The McLaren-approved Pirelli MC Sottozero 3 winter tyres provide better grip and braking in adverse conditions when temperatures drop below 7 degrees Celsius. The set comes fully assembled and ready to fit, so owners can combat the worst of the salt and other winter road debris as well as protecting their 'summer wheels'.

The shear pulling power of the 2018 Land Rover Discovery has been demonstrated in the Australian Outback, with the sight of a 110-tonne road train being towed by the renowned SUV. Land Rover took on the ultimate towing test by pulling the massive road train across a closed section of the Lasseter Highway in the remote Northern Territory, Australia. With 600Nm of torque, the Discovery Td6 is well suited to pulling heavy loads. The 258PS 3.0-litre single-turbo engine features low-pressure exhaust recirculation and a two-stage oil pump for improved responses, refinement and efficiency. As a result, the diesel model delivers CO2 emissions of 189g/km and fuel economy of 39.2mpg (7.2l/100 km).
