Italian race car constructor Dallara is about to get into the road car business. A prototype for the company’s first model, a track-focused sports car to challenge the Lotus Elise and KTM X-Bow, was recently spotted.

Lexus says the NX has been selling well above expectation. To keep the party going, the automaker has just introduced a round of worthwhile updates for the compact crossover SUV.

BMW has revived the "CS" tag as a new performance level for M cars. The first is an M4 CS that benefits from extra power, new aerodynamic mods and more aggressive tuning of the various chassis systems.
