One of the first test mules for Volkswagen’s third-generation Touareg has been spotted. The new SUV is expected on the market in the second half of 2017, as a 2018 model, and will once again be twinned by Porsche’s Cayenne.

Following on the heels of yesterday’s M4 DTM Champion Edition special edition coupe, BMW today unveiled a 1-Series Hatchback that also celebrates the German automaker’s recent title in the DTM touring car series.  The arrival of the latest special edition also coincides with the 10th anniversary of the 1-series.

Ferrari’s LaFerrari doesn’t have an all-electric mode, officially speaking, but one owner has shown that it is possible to drive the car without using its V-12. You can see the car moving silently in a new video that’s hit the web.

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