He’s done it. Mercedes AMG’s Nico Rosberg on Sunday secured his first Formula One World Championship crown. It didn’t come easy, though, as the German was challenged right up until the closing laps of the final race of the season.

BMW’s redesigned X3 has been spied again, this time with the least camouflage gear we’ve seen yet. The new SUV sports a handsome look and should be on the market in 2017.

Also in 2017, Ferrari [NYSE:RACE] will celebrate its 70th anniversary. Part of the celebrations will be the launch of 350 special edition cars wearing liveries inspired by important milestones of the company’s history. All 70 liveries have been revealed.
