BMW’s 3-Series has just undergone its mid-cycle update. The car’s styling may not have changed much, but underneath the skin there are some significant updates. Some of the highlights include a new 340i variant powered by a new six-cylinder engine, as well as a new 330e variant powered by a plug-in hybrid setup. Some of the changes have also made their way across to the high-performance M3.

Kahn Design today revealed its new WB12 Vengeance grand tourer based on the Aston Martin DB9. The body, which is almost entirely made of aluminum, is crafted by hand and is meant to invoke a sabretooth out on the prowl.

The Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] has revealed some of the features that will make its Mustang Shelby GT350 so formidable at the track. Some of them are Mustang firsts, such as the magnetic dampers and pizza tray-sized brake rotors.

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