Yamaha teases sports coupe ahead of Tokyo unveiling

Japanese manufacturer Yamaha has released a teaser image of a sports car concept it’s readying for the 2015 Tokyo motor show later this month. Best known for building vehicles with two wheels rather than four, the company says the coupe concept is “inspired by motorcycles” and “expresses the unique style of Yamaha”. The shadowy sketch reveals little about concept, though does uncover its pumped front and rear wheel arches, low nose, curvaceous roofline, and multi-layer spoiler arrangement.

Toyota FCV Plus fuel cell concept revealed

The hydrogen fuel cell Toyota FCV Plus concept has been revealed prior to its full unveiling at the Tokyo motor show, which starts at the end of this month. For the Tokyo-bound concept, Toyota has placed a fuel cell stack between its front wheels. This generates electricity by combining oxygen drawn from the atmosphere with hydrogen stored in a tank behind the rear seats. The electricity can be used to power compact in-wheel electric motors located in each of the car's four wheels.

Subaru to preview next-gen Forester and Impreza at Tokyo motor show

Subaru will use this month’s Tokyo motor show to preview the replacements for two of its most important models: the Forester mid-sized SUV and the small Impreza. The SUV concept shown here is the latest in Subaru’s ongoing ‘Viziv’ series, known this time as the Viziv Future Concept. Subaru has yet to confirm the Future Concept as a preview of the new Forester, but, apart from its three-door design, it’s no challenge to imagine this stylised SUV transforming into a showroom-ready family car.

Rolls-Royce won't pimp its rides with bigger wheels, says design boss

Rolls-Royce Cars has ruled out offering overly large wheels for its vehicles, despite the brand’s design chief, Giles Taylor, admitting he has an affinity for big rims. Taylor told CarAdvice at the 2015 Frankfurt motor show that there is a limit to what is acceptable for the brand in terms of wheel size on its cars, though he suggested that some high-profile owners have pimped their rides with much larger wheels to help with the street cred of the cars.
