2019 Audi A6 Allroad spied at the Nurburgring

The next-generation Audi A6 Allroad has been spied again, this time around the Nurburgring in Germany, wearing less disguise than previously. We already have a general idea of what to expect from the new Allroad's design, given we've already seen the latest A6 Avant, though the high-riding version will get some unique design elements and off-road technology to take advantage of the extra ride height...

2020 Porsche 911 GT3 spied at the Nurburgring

The new '992' Porsche 911 GT3 has been spied at the Nurburgring this week, spotted with its production body for the first time. Compared to less-extreme versions of the new-generation 911 we've seen recently, the GT3 prototype has a more aggressive body kit, with some bits still covered with black camouflage, along with that massive rear wing – the latter a pre-production component going by the rough look here...

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...

2019 Toyota Supra: Specs leak offers an inside look

A parts catalogue posted on Supra MKV forums has revealed details about the spec of Toyota's upcoming sports coupe. The catalogue, which appears to be a BMW internal document, shows just how heavily Toyota has leant on its German development partner in the Supra's cabin. Before we get into that, though, the engines: on BMW's documentation, the car is listed in 20i, 30i and 40i guises...

Five notable 2018 Paris motor show concept cars

It was a pretty flat Paris motor show this year, with a long list of brands sitting it out (Volkswagen, Ford, Fiat Chrysler to name a few) and a number of others more-or-less phoning it in (looking at you, Audi).
