The big Focus appears to be back!
BMW has confirmed it's making a long-awaited return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The Munich-based company's next endurance racer will be based on the upcoming M8, and it will make its competition debut in late January 2018 at the Daytona 24 Hours.
Lotus and Volvo will soon be part of the same group. The Swedish brand is open to working with its new British sibling on suspension tuning. "I don't see any problem using their knowledge. I think it is pretty applicable all over the board," an engineer told Drive.
Paris-based Renault has confirmed the new Megane RS will be available with both a manual transmission and a dual-clutch automatic. Packing about 300 horsepower, the brand's next hot hatch is also expected to get a four-wheel steering system.
