BMW turned 100 today and the automaker is celebrating with a look towards the future. That look came in the form of a wild concept car with autonomous driving capability and shape-shifting skin.

While BMW’s concept hints at a future much further out, Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer sat down with us to reveal what’s in the immediate future for his own company. Some of the things we learned from Palmer include a seven-car lineup and the return of the Lagonda brand.

Ferrari [NYSE:RACE] is allegedly showing an open-top version of its LaFerrari supercar to potential customers. The car, tipped to be called a LaFerrari Spider, would be the third LaFerrari variant.

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