BMW M4 Convertible Edition 30 Years revealed - UPDATE

BMW has whipped the covers off the limited-run M4 Convertible Edition 30 Years, designed to celebrate – you guessed it – three decades since the first M3 Convertible's launch. Just 300 examples will be built worldwide, all fitted with the Competition Package. That means you get 331kW of power and 550Nm of torque, along with adaptive M suspension, an M Sport exhaust and the Active M Differential, just like the 'regular' M4 Competition Pack.

2018 Renault Zoe R110 revealed

Renault has slotted a more powerful electric motor into its little electric hatch, creating the new Zoe R110. The new motor is the same size as the outgoing R90 unit, but produces 12kW more power, bumping its output to a lofty 80kW. Peak torque is still 225Nm, but the car now runs from 80 to 120km/h two seconds faster than before.

2018 Lexus RX L pricing and specs

Lexus has announced pricing and specs for the seven-seat RX L, with the base Luxury model priced from $84,700 before on-road costs. Two powertrains will be offered: a 216kW V6 in the RX 350L, and a hybrid setup combining a 193kW V6 petrol engine and a 123kW electric motor in the RX 450hL. Where the petrol is hooked up to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, the hybrid puts power to the wheels through a stepped 'six-speed' continuously-variable transmission.

VIDEO: Farewelling the Dodge Viper at the Nurburgring

Dodge farewelled the Viper last year, after almost 26 years of tail-out, terrifying fun. Rather than letting the V10 snake go quietly into the night, 378 dedicated fans paid to send a Viper GTS-R Commemorative Edition ACR to the Nurburgring for a final fang. FoxPro Films was on hand to film the whole thing and, rather than trying to condense all the action into five minutes, turned out a 21-minute documentary.
