Toyota HiLux GR Sport revealed in São Paulo

Toyota has used the São Paulo motor show in Brazil to reveal the HiLux GR Sport, a sport-themed version of its top-selling ute featuring various enhancements from the company's Gazoo Racing performance division. Before you ask, it's not a Ranger Raptor rival. The HiLux GR Sport is more or less a visual and equipment package rather than a standalone performance variant – much like the dark-themed Rogue available locally.

Lexus LFA: Mystery prototype spied at the Nurburgring

A mystery development vehicle based on the Lexus LFA supercar has been spied at the Nurburgring, raising questions as to what the company is working on. This particular LFA appears to be equipped with the Nurburgring pack – which added a more aggressive aero package including a larger front splitter and side skirts along with a fixed rear wing – though the camouflage on the front and rear guards indicates there could be something else going on underneath the skin.
