01. Detroit: Bentley Continental GT V8 brings the motor to Motor City

“Bentley has at last debuted its latest beast at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show. The Continental GT V8 arrived in the Motor City boasting a new compact 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 under its hood. With 500 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque on tap, the ultra-luxury coupe offers buyers heaps of performance in an efficient package. Well, efficient by Bentley standards, anyway. The company says the Continental GT V8 has an effective range of 500 miles, which translates to roughly 21 mpg. That’s not a Prius-besting figure by any stretch, but it’s far from embarrassing given the globe-spinning amount of power on tap.” (autoblog)

02. Audi Q3 Vail

“This week Audi reveals the new Q3 Vail SUV at the Detroit Auto Show. The new theme for the smallest SUV in the Audi line-up comes with a powerful 314 hp engine, special Energy Red colorway, a new interior material and all sorts of other features on the interior and exterior, that make it a sporty car for the mountains. Made for the ski and snowboard enthusiasts, the sporty appeal mixed with outdoor functionality, make the Audi Q3 Vail an interesting contender in the category.” (highsnobiety)

03. 2013 Ford Fusion

“Let’s get it out of the way. There’s an undeniably Aston Martin aura about the all-new 2013 Ford Fusion. And rights (or rites) of design or not, we reckon it’s been a while since anyone’s spoken that highly about a mid-size Ford sedan. At least not here in the U.S. and perhaps going all the way back to the long gone, but much beloved, and potent Ford Taurus SHO.” (gearpatrol)
