The new Continental GT gets a more upright grille, along with the double horseshoe rear design first seen in the Bentley Mulsanne. Most notably, the rear fenders are much more pronounced, which hints at the car's wider track.
The Continental GT still comes with the same twin-turbocharged 12-cylinder engine as the previous generation, although power has been increased to 567 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. This engine can now be fueled with E85 or even regular unleaded gasoline.
For 2011, the X3 gets new body styling, a new power train, and new cabin tech. It is an entirely different car than the model that launched in 2004. Under the hood, the X3 gets the latest twin-scroll turbocharged 3-liter inline six-cylinder engine, earning it the xDrive35i badge. That engine makes 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The eight-speed automatic is similar to what's now available in the BMW 5-series.
An active suspension helps keep the X3 stable while cornering, and a Performance Control feature applies braking to the inside rear wheel in a turn, helping the car rotate. Beyond road agility, BMW boasts of some off-road capability, and includes descent control on the X3.
The CLS debuts a new powerplant from Mercedes-Benz, a direct-injection 4.6-liter V-8 with twin turbochargers. This engine tech means more power and less fuel consumption than the previous 5.5-liter V-8.
Inspired by the 1953 356, the Speedster features a double-bubble hardcover for the manual soft top. The limited-edition two-seat roadster will have a run of 356 units worldwide, with only about 100 heading to the U.S.
Volvo showed off a new generation of its V60 station wagon. Although a variety of engines will be available in Europe, the U.S. will probably only get the turbocharged 3-liter six-cylinder, which churns out 304 horsepower. The six-cylinder V60 comes standard with all-wheel drive.
