Lexus just dropped the first teaser image on a new F model that will be unveiled next month at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show . All the image shows in the front wheel, fender and part of the headlight, but most the model in question is likely the F variant of the recently launched 2015 Lexus RC .

While no concrete details were offered, Lexus did describe the new model as "engineered from scratch, one performance layer at a time, the newest F model promises a bold, gritty, experience synonymous with the famed Lexus F heritage."

The RC F was caught testing plenty of times, and it will be offered as a cheaper alternative to the likes of the BMW M4 Coupe and Audi RS5 .

If the model shown here is indeed the RC F, then you should expect it to simply look like an RC updated with the usual F model elements, like the more aggressive body kit, the larger wheels, sports suspension, high-performance brakes and the obligatory more potent engine.

BMW M4 Coupe

We all were expecting to see the BMW M4 unveiled at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show , but it looks like BMW has a little surprise prepared for us.

From what we’re hearing, both new M Series models will make their online reveal this on December 12th as a part of a DLC package for Gran Turismo 6, which is now available for PS3 .

We already knew that the BMW M4 Coupe will come to life in the GT6. According to an announcement made by Sony, the M4 "will be made available through a free update shortly after the release of GT6, allowing car enthusiasts around the world to drive it before it arrives in BMW showrooms" in 2014.

Since the model will be revealed in GT6, it would make no sense for BMW to keep it a secret until January, so we’ll have the first details on both models this Thursday.

Lightweight, track-ready sports cars have turned into its own market these days, so much so that more and more companies are coming out with their own versions. We’ve seen a number of them in recent years, including the Ariel Atom , the KTM X-Bow , and heck, even the Flip Car from Fast & Furious 6.

Recently, two companies are joining in on the fun, and they’re preparing a car that will pack a chest-caving punch.

The companies are Palatov Motorsport and Sector 111 and their mission is to build an 1,800-pound sports car that will not only make use of an emissions-compliant, V-8 engine, but do so while also producing 430 horsepower. Using Palatov Motorsport’s D2 racer as the base car, the vehicle, which has been coined "Project Dragon," is being developed with the purpose of turning it into a full-fledged pocket rocket that can give its more esteemed competitors a serious run for their money.

Other than their ambitious plans and stated goals, both Palatov and Sector 111 are keeping tight-lipped on the progress of Project Dragon. Rest assured, though, the two are serious are about this project, and with Sector 111 having some experience in building the US-market BAC Mono s, this project figures to gain more traction in the coming months.

Someday, we’ll probably see Project Dragon get an official name and someday, we might even see it go toe-to-toe with the Atoms and X-Bows of the world. Like everybody else, that’s a day we can’t wait to see.

How often do you get to experience a super fast luxury station wagon doing insane speeds on test bowl or even a twisty, complicated and undulating test track? Audi UK recently ran a campaign where guests were invited to experience Audi’s ’S’ and ’RS’ range of premium sports cars .

Millbrook proving grounds is a purpose-built test facility in Bedfordshire, England. It includes a high-speed bowl where the cars can be maxed, plus a twisty Alpine test course with elevation changes and tight bends. The Alpine course was designed to mimic actual mountain roads where the car’s high speed handling and stability are pushed to the limit.

Guests got a chance to ride alongside a seasoned driver and experience the limits of the cars. The new Audi RS6 Avant was the star of the show, much to the surprise of just about no one. Despite its immense size and weight, the RS6 was pretty quick around the Alpine track, and on the high-speed bowl, the RS6 hit speeds in excess of 170 mph.

Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series

"Lairy" is defined as cunning or conceited; ostentatiously attractive or flashy; or aggressive or rowdy. Is this how you would define the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Edition ? Well, this is exactly how the fellas over at TopGear feel about it...

According to TopGear magazine, the last iteration of the SLS AMG GT Black Series is more manageable than its predecessors and Jeremy Clarkson loved it for its power and tire life. However, for the rest of the world, it’s an inconvenience. And this put the ’Black Series’ in the top position as TopGear’s "Lairy Car of the Year."

It is lairy, but in a good way, they say. It lets you have all the fun and still assists you if you get slightly overboard. “It looks like it wants to bite your leg off, but actually it bear hugs you and covers your back like a best mate. It is lairy but not scary.” We’re willing to bet that those convoluted, yet genius, words came from Clarkson’s own mouth.

Tom Ford (@tomwookieford) quoted Tobias Moers, Chairman of Mercedes AMG GmbH, as responding to the award with "Thanks - that’s pretty much what we were aiming for with the car." Ah, a tongue0in-cheek response to a even more tongue-in-cheek award — isn’t the world of automotive journalism such a wonderful world!

Anyway, so there you have it. TopGear’s "2013 Lairy Car of the Year" is the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series.

Steve Saleen Returns to the Company he Founded

A few days ago, I had the pleasure of speaking to Steve Saleen, former racecar driver and the proud owner of Saleen , Inc, following a court battle to prove his rights to the once-troubled performance-car manufacturer. We discussed many things in our 30-minute conversation, and I learned tons about what brought him back to the company that he brought to greatness in the 1980s and 1990s, what we can expect in the near future and what we can look forward to as time goes on.

We asked Mr. Saleen what brought him back to the company that he founded decades ago, after stepping away in the 2000s. According to Steve, his return to the company was both to protect his namesake and to show Saleen fans that he hasn’t lost the passion to manufacture performance cars and that Saleen is still a player in the performance-car realm. He elaborated that his return to Saleen required a legal battle to prove that he indeed still had the right to the name.

The biggest news is the all-new supercar that Saleen is working on, and I asked him to give us any information he could regarding the pace of the project and where it stands. Unfortunately, I was met with "We are indeed working on the next American supercar and hopefully it is not too far out, but I cannot divulge more information at this time."

Something that always weighs on the mind of many Saleen fans is how far in advance and how much "inside" information Saleen receives to help it in its engineering process. Steve let us know that Saleen’s strong relationship with Ford and other manufacturers does afford it some extra information on models and upcoming projects to help with building Saleen vehicles.

In terms of the future, Steve assured us that Saleen is not going to ramp up slowly, as the economy is primed for fast growth, so the company will take full advantage of this to grow the "new" Saleen as fast as the economy will allow. Part of this growth, according to Mr. Saleen, will be in the electric car realm. He told me "You shouldn’t be surprised to see us doing something in the electric vehicle segment, as well." The company views the EV shift as "less of a fad and more of a long-term trend," according to Steve.

In closing Mr. Saleen left us with this "After 30 years, I have not lost the drive or passion for doing cars, and all of this is possible because of the tremendous we have from our customers and fans around the world."

Who said you can’t enjoy a supercar while it snows? This driver certainly didn’t want to stay indoors on a frosty morning, so he decided to crank up the C7 Corvette Stingray parked in his garage and head to a parking lot.

Yes, an empty parking lot on a snowy day with no one around except for a friend with a camera in his hand. Let’s do some donuts, shall we? And this isn’t just any Chevrolet Corvette Stingray . This one has a supercharger from Pfadt Race Engineering, which spools to bump the power output to 650 horsepower.

Pfadt Performance also offers a Stage 2 conversion for the C7 Corvette Stingray that includes headers, exhaust, tweaked ECU, etc. Also available is a body kit and wheels for the new C7 Vette.

That is more than sufficient to get the rear tires loose on an icy parking lot. And of course, a lot of fun despite the miserable weather.

The outpouring of support Paul Walker’s family and friends have received has been nothing short of amazing. But it’s not really surprising, considering how beloved Walker was by fans and peers alike.

Recently, Universal Studios — the studio behind the successful Fast & Furious franchise — took its turn in paying tribute to its fallen son , releasing an emotional video that will make even the toughest of you choke up a bit.

Set to the music of "Coming Home," the video shows clips of how Walker has grown in the Fast & Furious movies, from his early days in the first movies all the way to a more mature persona in the later movies. Thinking about how he passed still leaves a bad taste in our mouths, and this video was as emotional a tribute as we’ve seen in the days since his passing.

It’s still hard to come to grips why the whole thing happened and the reason that it did, but it’s comforting knowing that so many people have been positively affected by Walker during his short, yet fulfilling, life in this world.

The outpouring of support his family and friends have received during this dark time is living proof of that.

It’s been a few days since Paul Walker’s unexpected passing and the details behind the ordeal are still pretty hard to fathom.

One of the things that have been directly affected by Walker’s death is the Fast & Furious franchise, which is actually in the middle of filming its seventh installment with Walker playing a prominent role in it, as usual.

Recently, leaked footage containing a scene from Fast & Furious 7 made it’s rounds in which Walker’s character, Brian O’Conner, promises "just one more" funeral while attending one held for another member of the "Fast Family," Han Seoul-Oh. You can see the scene above, though the audio is a little low quality.

Not a lot of details are being released about this particular scene, although a recent report from Movies indicated that the scene is actually a spoiler from the Fast & Furious 6 Blu-ray and DVD.

Either way, it’s a particularly goosebump-raising scene given the unfortunate and truly shocking death of Walker last weekend.

Our thoughts and prayers are still with his family and friends.
