Honda Civic Tourer for Frankfurt debut alongside NSX, Renault says goodbye to Twingo Renaultsport 133, Historic Jaguars in action at the Nurburgring

Honda's Civic Tourer will make its public debut at the Frankfurt motor show. The British-built Tourer is set to go on sale in 2014, and will be shown alongside Honda's NSX and a refreshed version of the Civic hatchback.

Renault is bidding a fond farewell to the Twingo Renaultsport 133. It says that with a replacement Twingo being readied for launch next year, it is time for the entry-level Renaultsport model to retire. That said, the last six examples of the car are still available for sale.

Jaguar will celebrate its motorsport heritage at the upcoming Oldtimer Grand Prix this weekend. The event, which is held at the Nürburgring, will see Jaguar put its C-type and Mk II into action with Le Mans winner Andy Wallace piloting the latter. The hybrid C-X75 hypercar will also be present.
