This weekend is the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans and there’s a lot to be excited about as Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] is making its return, competing in the GTE Pro class alongside illustrious brands such as Aston Martin, Ferrari [NYSE:RACE] and Porsche. Ford and its new GT are off to a good start, having secured a pole position.

Mopar has rolled out its latest special edition model. It’s based on the 2016 Ram Rebel and will be built in a limited run of just 500 units.

Like BMW and Rolls-Royce, Mini has presented its own Vision Next 100 concept car to celebrate the centennial this year of its BMW Group parent. The concept is a small, fully autonomous electric car that Mini envisages people sharing rather than owning.

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