Honda has released the first images of its 2014 World Touring Car Championship racer. The 2014 WTCC Honda Civic has increased engine power over last year's car, as well as new wheel arch extensions, larger-diameter wheels and an extended rear spoiler. The car will be driven by Gabriele Tarquini and Tiago Monteiro.

Porsche is restoring seveal old racers to stage a parade "like no other" when it returns to Le Mans in 2014. Examples of every Porsche Le Mans winner will take part, while a 550 Spyder, RS60 and a 935 that's never been exhibited before are all being revitalised.

Over 100 virtual Nissan IDx Nismo concepts were produced at the Tokyo motor show. As part of its stand, Nissan invited visitors to design virtual versions of its IDx concepts using virtual reality goggles. The real-life IDx concept has already been tipped to be turned into a production reality in the future.

Honda Civic

The Honda Civic is an impressive achievement and a worthy rival to the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus, but it isn't quite up to class-leading standards
