Aston Martin's stunning new DB12 grand tourer has spawned its Volante convertible variant. The car delivers similar performance to the coupe but couples this with the ability to drop the roof on those long summer days.

A redesigned Mercedes-Benz E-Class is on its way to showrooms later this year, and a prototype for the car's AMG E 53 variant has been spotted. The outgoing E 53 generates 429 hp from an inline-6 and mild-hybrid combination, and a similar setup likely boasting even more power should feature in the new generation.

Pininfarina will be busy during this week's 2023 Monterey Car Week. In addition to showing off a new version of its Battista hypercar and previewing an upcoming SUV with the Pura Vision concept, Pininfarina will also show off a new production-bound model, a teaser for which has been released.
