It's a somber day for news in the car world.
Maria De Villota, test driver for F1's Marussia, has been injured in a crash during testing in the U.K. The latest updates indicate she's conscious and responsive. We hope she pulls through to a full recovery.
Sergio Pininfarina, automotive designer and son of the founder of legendary design house Pininfarina, has died at the age of 85. His son Paolo carries on the family tradition as chairman of the company.
On a lighter note, McLaren has finally taken all of the wraps off its MP4-12C Spider. To our eye, it looks even better than the coupe--a rare feat for a super sports car.
