New technologies that are previewed include a wraparound cluster of displays that is backed by the company's new user interface design, a Passenger Information Display for accessing services such as buying event tickets, and a new heads up display that can do things like identify road signs such as local speed limits and broadcast that into the driver's field of view. Much attention was paid to the luxury aspects aswell with contoured seats with retractable tables, aniline leather, and a variety of wooden trim details.

Volkswagen Golf R 400

Looks like Volkswagen isn't going to let its stablemates at Audi and Lamborghini have all the high-speed fun. They've put together a supercar-grade Golf Concept (yes, we said Golf) that can certainly keep up with some of the fastest marques out there. The Golf R 400 can hit 62 mph from 0 in just 3.9 seconds and hit a top speed of almost 174 mph. That all comes from a 2.0L four-cylinder that is turbocharged and has 395 hp 332 lb-ft of torque. Will they build it? Probably not, but here's hoping it builds enough attention for a limited run in the near future.

There was quite a bit of disappointment when it was announced that Audi wouldn't be bringing back the diesel-powered A3 hatchback alongside the new A3 sedans. Audi is caving to enthusiast demand and plans to bring back the TDI Sportback stateside next summer as a 2016 model. The car will join the E-Tron electric-gas hybrid and will boast a 150-hp TDI engine coupled with a 6-speed S Tronic transmission.

Aston Martin is revealing a new V8 Vantage called the GT and what's special about it isn't the new paint work or the fact that its a new model, its an Aston Martin that will come in at under $100,000. Priced at $99,900 MSRP, the V8 Vantage GT comes in a range of special paint schemes and is available in a hard top or coupe and is powered by their 430 hp 4.7L V8. Now the hard part? A new 911 or the beast from Britain? We'd have to go Anglo on this one.
