Jeep's vignettes
Jeep has released a 60-second video, titled Portraits, as part of its 75th-anniversary celebrations this year. The clip highlights the people, a dog, vehicles and moments in history that embody the spirit of Jeep.
Famous faces shown include Marilyn Monroe, BB King, Aretha Franklin, Steve McQueen and - in a tribute to Hollywood pop culture - T-800, the Terminator android.

London-based TMB Art Metal produces special personal items by repurposing unwanted materials from historical planes, such as the Concorde, and classic cars, such as the Jaguar D-type.
The firm's latest collectible is a pair of cufflinks (above) handcrafted using original metal from a body panel of the Aston Martin DBR1/2 that won the 1959 Le Mans race.
Fifty pairs of these unique cufflinks have been made.

BMW has added the M2 (above) as a safety car for the 2016 MotoGP season, with the first of 18 rounds kicking off on March 20.
MotoGP is the two-wheelers' equivalent to Formula One racing, so the M2 has been suitably modified for its official role.
The M2 joins the M3 and M4 to ensure that every MotoGP race is safe.

Nissan USA has built one-off versions of its Pathfinder, Murano and Rogue SUVs (above). The three special editions are equipped with heavy-duty snow tracks (in place of tyres and wheels), bumper protectors and roof rail crossbars.
Also ready for winter are the hatch tents on board. Playing in the snow should be fun with these Nissans.

Ferrari has renewed the five- year-old FF and renamed it GTC4Lusso (above). The new name is less snappy, but everything else about the four-seater is sharper, from the styling to the engine.
The 6,262cc 12-cylinder develops 690bhp and 697Nm, compared to the FF's 660bhp and 683Nm, and can take the supercar to 335kmh.
Another mechanical upgrade is the integration of rear-wheel steering with the patented four-wheel drive system.
Inside the cabin, there is a new steering wheel with a smaller airbag, all the controls are more ergonomic and the infotainment has been improved.
The GTC4Lusso will come to Singapore at the end of this year.
