LA Auto Show revealed its contenders for the 2008 Design Challenge, Motorsports 2025. First of them is the Audi R25, a car created at Audi Design Center in California.

LA Design Challenge: Audi R25

The inaugural Los Angeles round of the ALMS 2025 incorporates innovative features never previously seen in any form of motor sports, such as high-velocity banks and tunnels, which allow cars to race “inverted” and the opportunity to pass anywhere with aerodynamic racecars. All top sections of the tunnels and banks are also WiTricity wireless electrical charging zones, which encourage the drivers to utilize these free energy zones instead of fuel stops.

Back in September we reported that Mini will bring 500 electric cars to California . Since the cars will be in California, what better place to make its debut than the Los Angeles Auto Show. According to AutoCar, the EV Mini will be a surprise guest at that show.

Technical details are scarce, but its interior will have to be dramatically altered to fit a battery pack – possibly even losing the rear seats. Using modern lithium-ion batteries, the electric Mini is expected to have a range of between 100 and 135 miles after a full recharge.

Ford revealed today a new teaser image of the 2010 Mustang that will make its world debut in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show. If you thought the gas cap or seat teaser was insignificant, Ford has hit a new teaser low with revealing the knob for the gear shifter. SUPRISE, now we can confirm a 5-speed manual will be available, just like all current Mustangs (what no six-speed!?).

Inside Line revealed today more details on the 2009 370Z that will make its world debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show next month. Although the the 370Z will be built on the Nissan’s FM platform (same as the 350Z,) the wheelbase may be shortened by as much as five inches for better handling. Other improvements include wider rear fenders and an improved interior.

It will be powered by the 3.7-liter version of the Nissan VQ engine just like the G37 coupe and sedan. The engine delivers 330 hp and 270 pound-feet of torque.

Nissan will reveal first official images of the car on October 29, followed by technical information on November 11.

After yesterday’s almost uncovered spy shot of the future Z4, here as an exclusive TopSpeed rendering of the future sports car. The Z4 will make its world debut in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

From reports, the next generation Z4 will feature a more aggressive and sportier design. The shoulder line has been smoothed out considerably and will be offered with retractable hard top.

Under the hood of the next Z4 there will be both twin-turbo and naturally-aspirated straight six engines; while the flagship M Roadster is likely to get a brand new high-performance turbo six with around 350hp.

BMW will unveil the next generation Z4 at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November. Latest spy shot reveals the car with almost no camouflage. The shot confirms the rumors that car will be evolutionary rather than revolutionary. The roadster will feature a retractable hard top, trunk integrated brake light and the shoulder line has been smoothed out considerably.

Hopefully there is no unseen camouflage on the door line, and the next Z4 has lost the large and unnecessary side scoops. If so, it seems that Chris Bangle is trying to repent for his earlier sins of the Z4. The new, cleaner lines of the car in this pic almost makes the new Z4 look like a baby Mercedes SL .

After revealing first images and details on the 2010 Mazda3 sedan , Mazda also revealed the first video of the car that will make its world debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The 2010 Mazda3 will not only be offered with new design, more aggressive and sportier, it will also benefit of two more efficient engines: 2.0- and 2.5-liter engines.

Nissan will finally unveil the 2010 370Z coupe on November 19th at the Los Angeles Auto Show. But this latest spy shot reveals a new design, more aggressive and sportier clearly inspired by its bigger brother, the GT-R .

The 370Z may still have a few surprise elements at its debut. When the 350Z made its first appearance in 2002, it was used as Nissan’s North America flagship car, which meant everything had to be right. Now that the GT-R has taken over that role, Nissan has room to take a few risks with the 370Z.

Although the 370Z is an obvious evolution from the 350Z, it will be distinctly its own car. The flatter sides, flared wheelarches, and clean glasswork, will set the 370Z apart (or at least make it look more like a GT-R.) One of the bigger changes is the upgrade to the G37 ’s 3.7-liter V6. The car might also have a new rear-wheel drive system, but we’ll find out all the details in LA.

Ford revealed today the tenth teaser image of the 2010 Mustang . This time it’s the full dashboard. What we can now see is that Ford will continue to retro look of the interior, but with some welcomed new quality.

With design inspired by the Giugiaro concept , the 2010 Mustang, like the current car, will be offered with a V-6 and a variety of V-8 engines. Since the 2010 Mustang will make its world debut next month at the Los Angeles Auto Show, hopefully the teasers will stop and we see the whole car soon.
