BMW has revealed what looks to be the sweet spot in the new 3-Series range. The car is the M340i, an M Performance model with a 382-horsepower six and some pretty sophisticated chassis technology. Both rear- and all-wheel drive will be offered, but unfortunately no manual transmission.

Mercedes-Benz's E-Class is about to go under the knife for a mid-cycle facelift. A number of prototypes for the facelifted E-Class have been spotted, revealing some substantial changes are in store for the luxury mid-sizer. The latest shots show a prototype for the sedan body style.

What might the Ferrari F40 look like if it was launched today? A budding designer by the name of Samir Sadikhov has attempted to come up with the answer. The result is his F40 Tribute which does a good job of honoring the Ferrari icon without blatantly copying its lines.
