Overall dimensions looks unchanged but a longer wheelbase should provide passengers with more legroom; it'll come with three and four-cylinder engines The next Ford Focus is ramping up for a 2019 launch, with engineers currently testing late-build prototypes. Spotted by Autocar photographers, these new images show the fourth-generation model’s real skin beneath a disguise being tested in arctic conditions. Such testing only takes place when the car’s look and specification are mature, to prove that the finished model works well under extreme conditions and to fine-tune its braking and stability electronics. The new Focus, set to be revealed in early 2018 ahead of a launch the following year, will follow the same evolutionary path as the recently unveiled Fiesta , using Ford’s highly flexible global C-class platform. It will only come as a five-door saloon: Ford is keeping its development funds for making more SUVs, which European president Jim Farley believes are turning into “preferred family cars”.

Who knows what they'll turn up? The TRAPPIST family TRAPPIST-1 got its name from the telescope that first spotted the planets, the Transiting Planets and Planetesimals Small Telescope, although researcher Emmanuël Jehin noted, "By the way, Trappist is the name of a famous Belgian special beer." It's a Belgian project that searches nearby dwarf stars for the presence of planets, since the dim star would make observations of planetary atmospheres much easier. The team's first telescope is based in Chile's Atacama desert, but it has since added a second in Morocco. Read 12 remaining paragraphs | Comments

The P14's monocoque, called Monocage II, uses a T-bar-shaped roof structure that allows for the extended dihedral doors, along with a wider entrance and lower sills for better access, similar to the iconic F1. The P14 will weigh 1283kg – almost 200g less than its rival, the Ferrari 488 GTB , and 18kg less than its predecessor. That weight reduction is largely due to the monocoque too, which uses carbonfibre to offer “an ultra-lightweight” and “immensely rigidarchitecture, according to the supercar brand. McLaren also claims the structure enables a lower centre of gravity “further sharpening the dynamic performance” of the Super Series model. McLaren boss Mike Flewitt said: “This is the first time we have replaced a product family. The new Super Series will be a revolutionary leap forward, both for our brand and the supercar segment. "Super Series is the core of the McLaren business and personifies the blend of extreme performance, crafted luxury and unparalleled driver involvement that is the McLaren heartland," he added.
