A very special prototype version of the previous-generation Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] GT supercar is headed for auction. As a prototype, it features a few quirks not found on the production model. One of these is a carbon fiber clamshell cover for the engine bay.

Subaru has just launched a redesigned Impreza but don’t hold your breath for the WRX model. A Subaru engineer says the redesigned WRX is still some years off. In the interim, the current WRX will be updated.

Volkswagen’s GTI Clubsport S has just beaten its own record at the Nürburgring. The record is for the fastest front-wheel-drive production car at the notorious German race track.
