Both President Trump and Putin are set to receive their respective presidential limos this summer. Details are scarce for security reasons but we already have a good idea of what each will look like thanks to our spy shots.

The Brabham race team launched by legendary Australian Formula 1 driver Jack Brabham has spawned an automotive division, and the first product from the new division is a supercar. It's coming with a naturally aspirated V-8 and a dry weight of just over 2,100 pounds.

Volkswagen is making a return to the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb this year. The German automaker will tackle the climb with a dedicated electric race car that looks like a Le Mans prototype blended with one of the recent ID concepts.

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