Honda just said this "a race car for the road", they preview the next year's Civic TypeR, which features and aerodynamic body, with fender flares, lower bumper valances, lower skirts, a drop in stance and large wheels.
The engine will be a turbocharged 2.0L unit, which will probably have around 280HP and if we're to judge what they said, they going to beat the Nurgburgring lap record.

The DTM regulations are very strict so there's no big changes, just some inter suspension adjustments and most of the other changes will be done before the race.

Besides being that green, the car's wow factor comes from the drag coefficient, a whooping 0.26, thanks to it's "emotionally-charged design", how the design team calls it.
Engine is a 1.4TSi unit, Euro 6 compliant, kicks 110HP and reaches 214km.h.

The roaring unit is a 5.0 L, V8 engine, although Lexus didn't provide any specs, it is expected to punch over 540HP.
The car will be provided next year and will compete in races such as SuperGT and 24hrs LeMans Series.

The racer weights as little as 1170kg and it's being powered by a NA V8 engine which develops 480HP and 500NM of torque, i believe this car flies. Transmission magic happens due to a 6speed sequential gearbox, with the help of 2 hydraulic flappy paddles.

Prior to Geneva's Auto Salon, MINI has revealed near-production Clubman Concept. This right here, is the largest MINI, measuring 4223mm long, 1844mm wide and 1450mm tall. Comparing it with the previous model, this one features four frameless front-hinged doors while the split rear doors have been retained.
The interior looks more conceptual than the exterior, MINI sustains that this is a hint of what we can expect from the future models - premium materials, like real wood, with chrome and alluminium inserts, LCD displays with all sorts of informations.

But, a few years ago, everything changed, the Estate cars have wonderful shapes, they attract even the most critic eye and aren't meant for families only.
This just happened with Volvo, which revealed their Estate Concept, which is based on their new SPA platform (Scalable Product Architecture) - and it looks absolutely gorgeous, just look at that full roof glass panel. Volvo also worked on the spacious interior, with quality materials and live colors.
