Nissan has announced a bunch of premieres for next year's Tokyo Auto Salon, which opens its gates on January 12, one of them being the Leaf Grand Touring Concept.
The show car is not as aggressively styled as the Leaf Nismo that debuted two months ago, but it does get a few interesting bits, such as the two-tone black and matte silver finish.
If you're going to get a bunch of really fast Honda Civics for a World's Greatest Drag Race-style event, these eight cars seem as good a choice as any.
In total, we're dealing with more than 4,000 HP between them, with some, like that red 1994 Civic Hatchback packing 1,100 HP, looking very hard to beat.
Toyota has turned the C-HR into a turbocharged, 447kW monster for SEMA in Las Vegas. Along with the fire-breathing compact SUV, the Japanese manufacturer leaned on its NASCAR driver lineup to create a range of modified Camrys.
The headline Toyota is undoubtedly the C-HR R-Tuned, designed to see how far the base package could be developed as a track car. Power comes from a 2.4-litre Toyota 2AZ-FE engine with forged internals, a reinforced valve-train and a custom Garrett turbo running 23PSI of boost.
Subaru will be rolling deep at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show next month. The Japanese automaker has announced a number of different models that it will bring to the show, including three concepts, and limited editions of two different STI models.
At the top of the list, teased above, is the Subaru Viziv Performance Concept. This car sounds like it could be a sneak preview of a next-generation WRX, as Subaru describes it as a sport sedan that combines "enjoyment and peace of mind." The very nature of the model encourages active engagement, but Viziv Performance uses Subaru's EyeSight tech to provide advanced driver assistance. The teaser images don't give us much else to go on, but we'll keep our ear to the ground in case Subaru drops any more information ahead of the show on Oct. 25.
