Toyota has updated the GR Yaris, and soon the car's more extreme GRMN Yaris sibling will receive its own round of updates. A prototype has been spotted testing at the Nürburgring, and Toyota Chairman Akio Toyoda was on hand to help with the development, even taking turns behind the wheel.

BMW is working on a new generation of the M5 with plug-in hybrid power, and there will be both sedan and wagon body styles this time around. The debut will take place later this year, and BMW has confirmed that both body styles will make it to the U.S.

Manthey-Racing, a leading racing team with close links to Porsche, is now offering forged wheels developed and produced at its own facility in Germany's Black Forest region. Previously, the company worked with leading supplier BBS for its wheels.
