Toyota’s motorsport division, TMG, has confirmed that it is developing a high-performance Lexus LS sedan that it will be showing at the end of this month at the 2012 Essen Motor Show. It hints at the kind of performance upgrades we can expect from a TMG-enhanced Lexus and could even be put into production should there be sufficient demand.

Mercedes-Benz has taken the wraps off its long-awaited SLS AMG Black Series model. The vehicle gets a more powerful version of AMG’s 6.2-liter V-8, plus a series of chassis and weight-saving mods.

Ferrari has announced that it will auction off the first of its F12 Berlinettas to be offered in the U.S. to help raise funds for the American Red Cross and its relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy. The new supercar lists for $315,888, but this one is expected to go for considerably more.

All of this and more can be found in today's car news headlines here at Motor Authority.
