One particularly interesting bit regarded the shooting brake, which Nurnberger said, "we sort of started it and then realized to make a really good shooting brake we had to do a lot more engineering." Thus, the long-roof Vanquish actually has a longer wheelbase than the rest of the cars. According to Nunberger, the rear of the car is taken from a modular platform and is essentially a rear of a Rapide that has been added on. Of course, that required total reengineering, retesting, as well as re-crashing to bring it to production......

Not once, not twice, but thrice did all four drivers manage to link up 1-2-3-4 on Sunday, breaking away from the pack and threatened to pull away from the rest of the field.

Focused and disciplined company
Much like Ford, General Motors has had a difficult time breaking into key emerging markets due to strong incumbent players. Today, the automaker announced it will cut operations in India and South Africa in an effort to focus resources on more profitable markets.
GM will stop selling vehicles in India, although exports from India to other countries will continue. Struggling to compete against rivals such as Suzuki, the American automaker is canceling most of its $1 billion investment to build a new lineup of low-cost vehicles in India, reports Reuters. Meanwhile, GM is selling the remainder of its manufacturing operations in South Africa to Isuzu Motors. Previously, GM held a 30-percent stake in a truck venture with Isuzu.
The Chevrolet brand will exit both South Africa and India by the end of this year. The brand will also withdraw from East Africa now that Isuzu has agreed to purchase the remaining shares of GM’s operations in Kenya. GM’s International Operations headquarters in Singapore will experience staff reduction as part of the overall restructuring effort, although it’s unclear how many workers will be cut. All in all, the plans are expected to save GM $100 million a year.
“As the industry continues to change, we are transforming our business, establishing GM as a more focused and disciplined company,” said GM CEO Mary Barra in a statement. “Globally, we are now in the right markets to drive profitability, strengthen our business performance and capitalize on growth opportunities for the long term.” Barra also noted GM would continue to hone its operations on a market-by-market basis to improve costs.
