SRT has increased the base price of the 2014 Viper to $101,309, which excludes the $2,600 gas guzzler tax but includes destination. While the base price has increased, pricing for the Viper GTS model has remained the same as last year at $122,390. The price increase reflects the additional standard equipment for 2014 such as HD Radio, navigation, and a backup camera.

Audi released a second sneak preview of the 2015 A8 luxury sedan. Set to be revealed at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show, the revised A8 will feature updated styling and new technology. The teaser video shows the car under wraps, but the new LED headlights show through the sheet. Expect to see more teasers as we near the car's reveal.

Lexus is hard at work on a two-door IS variant which will bear the name RC. A high-performance variant is in the works and will be called the RC F. We expect the car to used a revised version of the current IS F's 5.0-liter V-8 engine. Reports indicate the RC F will feature carbon fiber and LFA hand-me-down bits to justify a price that's higher than the competitions.
