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).
A 1954 Jaguar XK120 that features unique bodywork by famed Italian coachbuilder Pininfarina was seen at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in California, USA over the weekend. It could be the rarest Jaguar ever. The full nut and bolt restoration took 6,725 hours by world-class specialists Classic Motor Cars. In 2015, CMC purchased the car from a German gentleman who had owned it since 1978 but without ever restoring it. CMC took on the challenge and have restored every nut and bolt of the vehicle. David Barzilay, Chairman of CMC's operating board, said: "Some of the original parts were impossible to find so we had to remake items such as the bumpers and chrome work by hand from photographs." The full body restoration included a complete new front end, new rear quarter panels, inner arch panels, boot floor, sills and door skins as well as a full chassis repair and repaint. Part that were remade included the front and rear bumpers, 80% of the original chrome work, rear screen and screen surround, along with a full interior re-trim.
