Renault T-Wing-O

Is this a very lucky German?
My initial thoughts are "No - he drives on old Twingo."

But he has just saved £93 by having most of his face obscured by a dove in the speed camera photo.

And he has managed to get an old Twingo up to 34mph.

The story is here with German Police citing Divine Intervention.  Apparently a number plate and an ear are not enough for a conviction over there.

I think it just means that God does not approve of 18.6mph speed zones.

Ferrari Testadrivaoffa

The BBC are today reporting how a rare 1985 Ferrari 280 GTO was stolen during a test-drive.  It happened in Düsseldorf.

They claim it was once owned by Eddie Irvine:
I don't know if it really is the same car but his WAS red.
 
Anyway, they reckon the car would be too difficult to sell on due to its rarity - it was found in a garage nearby.
 
Police are looking for Alan Carr:

Coming and Going

Am I into pornography?

All I'll say is that I don't own a pornograph.

But, like Elon Musk, I am aware that there is a very popular piece of pornography that has allegedly been produced in a Tesla Model X being driven on Autopilot.  I know Elon knows about it because Car+Driver have the story of his tweets on the subject.

Is the unnamed star of the film to be referred to as "Model X"?

And who has got their hands on the wheel?

Sucking

In August 2017 I reported about the possibility nay probability of a Dyson Electric Car.

Autocar today report on a patent for a Dyson Electric Car.

Here is a picture from their story:
And here is one of the patent document diagrams:
It appears to incorporate a BMW badge on the front.
 
Autocar tell us that it "is likely to be a long, sleek crossover-style premium saloon that will have roughly the same footprint as a Range Rover but with completely different proportions from the classic British 4x4 – and every other production car on the road."
 
Maybe they have forgotten about the Renault Avantime:
