It's that time of year, Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este will showcase the most exclusive cars and whatnot. As per usual, BMW always displays a special concept or hommage, or both.
 
This time, they paid a tribute to the very special 2002 turbo model, which was their first car to feature turbocharged technology and it was one of the most appreciated car in those times.

2016 Honda Civic TypeR

After all the teasing, spies, more teasing and more spies, the real deal is here, here is the new Civic TypeR and it comes with a pompous name "a race car for the road". 
 
Exterior wise, Honda really went all in, it features a wide-body aerodynamic kit, with large flares, large front air intakes and generous bumper splitter. Along the back, there's an aggressive diffuser, 4 round tail pipes and a devilish looking spoiler - which unfortunately, didn't house the concept LED tails.

2015 Ferrari 488 GTB

 
This is not just a facelift for the 458, this model welcomes the turbo technology at Ferrari, because at the heart of the 488, sits a twin-turbo V8 which develops 670HP and 760NM of torque. Needs 3s flat to reach to 100km and 8.3s for 200km.h.
 
After the number diet, we move to styling - the most intriguing feature has to be the large scoop behind the doors, which as we can see, it's been divided in two, not for design purposes, but for efficiency, as it channels the air in two distinctive ways.
