This year is Aston Martin’s 100th, and as part of the celebrations the British automaker will race a hydrogen-powered Rapide S in one of the world’s most grueling motorsport events, the Nürburgring 24 Hours endurance race. Aston Martin is calling its special Rapide S a Hybrid Hydrogen and it looks like the car is about to set some new world firsts.

Police in Dubai now have a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 among their fleet. So, unless you have a car capable of reaching a top speed in excess of 217 mph, best pull over if you see the Dubai Police Aventador flashing its lights in your rearview mirror.

EcoMotors’ opposed-piston, opposed-cylinder (OPOC) engine that we first saw in 2009 is about to enter production. EcoMotors, which is based in Michigan, has signed a deal with China's Zhongding Power to start manufacturing the engine at a plant in China.

You'll find all of this and more in today's car news headlines from around the High Gear Media network.
