You’re looking at one of the rarest Porsches in existence. This 1951 356 SL Gmünd Coupe is the first Porsche sports car converted for racing, and it’s the first to claim a victory for the German marque, in the 24 Hours of Le Mans no less.

Now compare the 356 with one of Porsche’s newest sports cars, the 718 Boxster. Read what it’s like to drive in our first drive review.

BMW’s new 5-Series has finally landed. So far only 4- and 6-cylinder models have been announced for the United States. However, we know of at least three V-8 models, the first of which, the M550i xDrive M Performance model, has already been revealed. Shown above is the new 5-Series coming off the production line at a plant in Dingolfing, Germany.

Gymkhana hero Ken Block is back with a new version of his famous Hoonicorn 1965 Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] Mustang. It seems the original’s 800-odd horsepower wasn’t enough, so he’s bolted on two massive turbochargers to help liberate 1,400 horses!

Another Ford that made headlines this week is the 2016 Focus RS. We’ve just driven it, and boy is it a brilliant car. We love it so much we’re happy to call it the hottest hot hatch you can buy right now.

Another car we love is Lamborghini’s Huracán. Soon, a more potent version will be launched, as evidenced by our latest spy shots. The new Huracán variant looks to be getting a much more aggressive design than the standard car, which makes us think that it could be the successor to a past favorite, the Gallardo Superleggera.

Another vehicle we spied is Alfa Romeo’s new Stelvio SUV, which is just a month out from its world debut at the 2016 Los Angeles auto show. The latest prototypes are wearing the least bit of camouflage yet.

Mercedes-Benz’s awesome Unimog turned 70 this week. Pictured here is the original prototype that led to the first Unimog.
