Want to jump right into racing? Audi has you covered with their new RS 3 LMS. Built around the new roadgoing sedan, the race car packs 330hp 2.0L turbo 4 cylinder engine that actually makes less power than the standard car's 2.5L 400hp engine. But what it lacks in power, it makes up in handling and grip. The RS 3 LMS is built to fit the TCR league standards and can reach 150mph in 4.5 seconds. The car features performance enhancements including upgraded brakes, body panels, wings and spoilers, a wider track and safety gear required to go racing. All this for $130,000. Sounds like a bargain.

Following Volvo's reveal of the new 90 series lineup, they have added to it the new V90 Cross Country.

The car still maintains a high level of luxury to go with their Scandinavian sense of style. Whiles specs for this particular V90 Cross Country were not released, it is safe to assume that the engines and features will be very similar to the regular V90 wagon. Read on for press release, videos, and high res wallpapers.
The wildest concept car of the Paris Auto Show title probably goes to the Renault Trezor Concept. This thing is insame! The entire top of the car slides up and forward to enable driver and passengery entry and exit, and the shape of the is pure sex. Powering the car is a drivetrain taken directly from Formula E race cars and make 350 HP and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque. The car can reach 0-62 mph in less than four seconds.

No official pricing has been released either, but some people are saying it will start at $33K, thus undercutting the competition.
