Photos of BMW's new 8-Series coupe have hit the web. They indicate that BMW's designers have toned down the aggressive lines of last year's 8-Series concept for the production model, but that there's still a lot to like.

Redesigning an icon like the Land Rover Defender is a monumental task, but Land Rover is up to the challenge. The automaker has been spotted testing the next-generation model in public for the first time.

Mini's Hardtop and Convertible have come in for some updates. Not much has changed but there is a cool Union Jack motif integrated in the taillights. The changes should eventually filter across to other Mini models like the Clubman and Countryman.
