The Lotus Evija is now in production and Lotus has marked the occasion with the reveal of a special edition dubbed the Evija Fittipaldi. As the name suggests, the car honors Emerson Fittipaldi, who won the 1972 Formula 1 title while driving for Lotus.

BMW was once again spotted testing a prototype for its redesigned M5, and this time the tester was sporting the production-bound lights and wheels. The new super sedan is confirmed with a hybrid powertrain, but there are rumors of an electric powertrain being offered as an alternative.

After dropping the option back in spring, Mini is adding back the manual transmission for the 2023 model year. However, it's only been added back to the signature Hardtop, and Mini hasn't said whether it will be returning to other models.
