Mercedes-AMG is out testing a prototype for a GT R Roadster. The car is expected to debut next year alongside a mid-cycle update for the entire GT range. Rivals include the Audi R8 V10 Plus Spyder, Aston Martin Vantage Roadster, and a possible Porsche 911 GT3 Cabrio.

Germany's Opel has unveiled a concept previewing the new design language that will shape its cars coming in the next decade. The concept is in the form of a compact crossover, which makes sense considering Opel predicts that 40 percent of its sales will be crossovers by 2021.

Before SSC started work on the Tuatara hypercar, the company offered a model called the Ultimate Aero. The range-topping version was the Ultimate Aero TT, and it at one point held the land speed record for production cars. One is currently up for sale.
