Motor Authority reader Martin Desormeaux has sent in some spy shots of a new Chevrolet Corvette model thought to be a ZR1. Chevy is thought to be reviving the nameplate at the 2017 Detroit auto show, and the car it will be attached to may end up as the last Corvette with an engine mounted in front of the cabin.

Mercedes-Benz’s GLC Coupe is the latest recipient of the Mercedes-AMG division’s mid-range “43” series treatment. Like the similar GLC43, the GLC43 Coupe comes with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 good for 362 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque.

Startup supercar manufacturer and race team Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is attempting to get its first product, the SCG003, registered for the road in the United States. To avoid costly airbag and crash-test requirements, the company has decided to offer the SCG003 as a kit car.
