We’ve now spent considerable time with the second-generation Audi R8. For our latest drive we took to North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. We concluded the trip with some time spent at the Daytona International Speedway where we could fully unleash the supercar’s 610 horsepower.

Lexus is planning to unveil an updated version of its IS at next week’s 2016 Beijing Auto Show. We’ll likely see the sedan in showrooms this fall as a 2017 model.

Another car we drove recently was the Mercedes-Benz SLC. It’s an updated version of the SLK but it sports a new look and interior as well as a new SLC43 variant developed by Mercedes-AMG.

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