Already sold out
It's only been a few days since the LPI 800-4 became available to buy, and they have already sold out. According to Top Gear, the main reason for this is because only 112 were built and sold for over 2 million, so it's no surprise there is none left to buy.

Tesla Autopilot is getting investigated after crashes
The US government has opened an investigation into Tesla's Autopilot system, after multiple collisions with parked emergency vehicles.
11 total crashes
NHTSA, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, is carrying out the investigation, after 11 crashes, with a total of 17 people injured, one killed, and potentially affects 765,000 cars.
Crashes may be linked to Tesla's Autopilot
According to the NHTSA, every Tesla which crashed in the past few years has either had its Autopilot or advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) enabled leading up to the incidents, meaning there is a chance0 it is not just a coincidence.
How will they test Tesla's Autopilot?
To see if Tesla's Autopilot is not safe for the road, the NHTSA will “assess the technologies and methods used to monitor, assist and enforce the driver’s engagement with the dynamic driving task during Autopilot mode,” along with looking into other contributing circumstances for the crashes.

Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin and NASA go toe to toe in Federal Court
On Monday, Jeff Bezos’ aerospace company, Blue Origin has brought their fight against NASA’s Moon program to federal court. The company has accused NASA of wrongly evaluating its lunar lander proposal.
Why is Blue Origin suing NASA?
Just days after the announcement of SpaceX receiving the lunar contract and funding back in April, Blue Origin argued with the Government Accountability Office (GAO) that NASA should have canceled or even change the terms of the Moon Program when they learned that NASA would not have enough money to fund two different contracts. Originally Blue Origin was among three aerospace companies trying to get the lunar landing contract, but they were beaten out by Elon Musk's SpaceX.
Blue Origin lawsuit against NASA escalates
With the rejection of Blue Origin's arguments by the GAO in late July, the aerospace company has decided to escalate this lawsuit into federal court where they challenged NASA's decision in picking SpaceX for the lunar lander contract. Blue Origin's earlier challenges had caused SpaceX to delay the start of their lunar landing contract with NASA for 95 days, but with the federal lawsuit, the company has now halted SpaceX's contract once again which hinders NASA's timeline for their Artemis Program.
