A prototype for the next-generation Mercedes-Benz A-Class has been spotted. Although the new compact hatchback isn’t expected in the United States, many of its design traits will feature on new versions of the CLA and GLA.

Sports car startup Jannarelly has unveiled a gorgeous roadster. It’s called the Design-1, and Jannarelly is hoping to get the car into U.S. showrooms for just $55k. It sure would be a tasty track toy.

When you think powerful cars out of Italy, forget the likes of Ferrari [NYSE:RACE], Lamborghini and Pagani. The maker of the most powerful road car in Italy is Mazzanti, which today unveiled its 1,000-horsepower Evantra Millecavalli.
