The most revealing prototype of the next-generation BMW X1 we’ve seen was recently spotted hot-weather testing in the Californian desert sun. The new vehicle adopts a sleeker and sportier look than the current X1, and should be on sale late next year or in early 2016.

Another Ferrari has set records at auction this week. A 1962 250 GTO, just one of 39 ever built, went under the hammer during The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering and its final bid is now the highest price ever paid for a car at auction.

Toyota plans to eventually have a three-tier sports car lineup, and today we have details on the entry-level model. Sitting above it will be the GT 86 (sold here as the Scion FR-S) and the new Supra successor.

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