Mercedes-AMG has finally started public road trials of prototypes for the convertible version of its GT sports car. The first in the lineup will be called the GT C Roadster and is confirmed for a debut in early 2017.

Another vehicle spotted testing is a new compact SUV being developed by Chinese automaker Geely. While we won’t see this vehicle in the United States, a reskinned version will be sold here as the Volvo XC40.

The convertible version of Ferrari’s [NYSE:RACE] LaFerrari hypercar has been spotted in the wild. The car is due to make its formal debut in late September at the 2016 Paris Auto Show.
