Revived British sports car marque TVR stunned us on Friday with the reveal of a modern-day Griffith. We talked with the man leading the revival and found out just what’s in store for the new TVR’s future.

Bugatti’s new Chiron has already claimed its first world record: the time it takes for a production car to accelerate to 248 mph and then slow back down to a standstill. The all-important production car land speed record won’t be attempted until 2018, unfortunately.

Someone just bid $10 million to purchase a Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta. Before you scoff at the insanity of the price, note that all proceeds from the sale will be going to charity.

You'll find these stories and more in today's car news, right here at Motor Authority.
