2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Up Close (22 Photos)

Spider

Sometimes sports cars don't look all that great when they're transformed into convertibles, but the new 4C Spider doesn't suffer that fate. It's just as striking and stylish as the 4C coupe, with the biggest changes to the car’s rear.

A new rear deck covers the engine, and it's bordered by buttresses leading to the roll bar. Like the coupe, the A-pillar is made of carbon fiber, but it's not painted on the Spider, which gives the frame a unique look.

2016 Acura NSX

The NSX had a lot to live up to with all the hype that's developed around the car's return over the last few years, but the finally arrived production model did. It's modern, sleek and aggressive, yet it retains a clear design connection with the original NSX. During the car's reveal, Acura said team members from the original NSX project were part of the group working on the new car.

The front-end looks good and appropriately exotic. It's covered with cooling inlets and a slim version of Acura's corporate shield grille. The car is designed so air flows through the front inlets and out the hood and fender vents, both of which are new design elements since the last NSX concept. The rear gets a prominent diffuser and quad exhaust outlets. The overall look is more McLaren than Ferrari or Lamborghini.

2016 Ford Shelby GT350R Mustang Details and Photos

350GTRfirstphoto

We're just glad there was some of the new Shelby GT350R Mustang left over to photograph after Ford got done removing features in the pursuit of saving weight for performance. The GT350R takes road-racing track prowess to the next level over the Shelby GT350 announced last year by ditching anything that wasn't imperative for speed.

Say goodbye to air conditioning, the stereo, a backup camera, the backseat and more; though some can be added for convenience as options. Total weight savings adds up to more than 130 pounds compared with the GT350 Track Pack.

Looks like: Ford's nostalgic GT meets a modern-day racecar

Drivetrain: 600-plus-hp, twin-turbocharged V-6, seven-speed dual-clutch automatic rear transaxle, rear-wheel drive

Ford's supercar stable has been empty since the departure of the limited-run Ford GT in 2006, but that's about to end with the introduction of the next-generation Ford GT announced at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The new GT is a radical street car with heavy inspiration from Ford's involvement in racing.

Strong, lightweight carbon fiber is used extensively throughout the GT as the cockpit's primary construction material and used heavily elsewhere. Ford expects the GT to have one of the best power-to-weight ratios of any production car thanks to the use of carbon fiber paired with the more than 600-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V-6, which is Ford's most powerful EcoBoost engine to date.

Mercedes Rolls Out AMG 'Light' Models to Compete With Audi S Lineup

AMGLine1

If you're scratching your head over the high-performance designations from certain luxury brands, Mercedes figures to become just as confusing. The brand's AMG performance badge will grace bona fide AMG cars complete with hand-built engines from Mercedes' Affalterbach plant in southern Germany. But Mercedes will also bequeath the name to AMG-light cars from its mass-market plants as "AMG Sport." You know, in case the brand's recent naming overhaul wasn't complicated enough.

The first example is the GLE-Class, a coupelike SUV similar to the BMW X6. Once production ramps up, you'll be able to buy a Mercedes-Benz GLE450 AMG Sport or, for all-out performance, a Mercedes-AMG GLE63. Mercedes also replaced the short-lived C400 sedan with the C450 AMG Sport, and it's all but inevitable that we'll see a Mercedes-AMG C63 at some point.

The AMG sub-brand was expected. We reported in November 2014 that Mercedes owner Daimler would relaunch its Maybach and AMG brands with Benz-free nomenclature — respectively, Mercedes-Maybach and Mercedes-AMG. Both initiatives have born fruit: the Mercedes-Maybach S600 sedan and Mercedes-AMG GT sports car.

The AMG multiplication came as a surprise.
