Steve Saleen has made good use of his time since regaining his namesake brand in 2012. The timing couldn’t have been any more ideal too, because a little over a year after returning to Saleen , the all-new Ford Mustang made its debut. Yep, sometimes, timing is everything.

The aftermarket company known for building sick specialized Mustangs has prepared its first interpretation of the new Ford muscle car . It’s predictably called the 2015 Saleen 302 Mustang and like its predecessors, and it’s sure to have all of the familiar high-performance modifications that Saleen has come to be known for.

The full scope of details haven’t been released as of 7/3/2014 and we only get a teaser photo to look at, plus an accompanying video. But make no mistake, a lot of the technical components are there for the new Saleen 302, including what we expect to be a robust performance tune that adds even more power to the Mustang’s already gnarly 5.0-liter, V-8 engine.

Without knowing how Saleen reinvented the Mustang into the 302, a look at the front section photo suggests that Mustang was given the full Saleen treatment, including improvements to its aesthetic and aerodynamic qualities. The vented hood now has a scoop, something the standard Mustang doesn’t have. Moreover, the headlights appear to have been cut in favor of a longer front grille. Even the lower bumper is restyled to include visible intakes and what appears to be slit-like indicators.

We expect Saleen to divulge more details soon. For now, enjoy the photo and the video. Let your imagination do the rest.

Updated 09/18/2014: Saleen announced that the all-new 2015 302 Mustang will make its world debut Saturday, September 20, 2014 during the Annual Saleen Show. Stay tuned for more details.

The world’s most popular roadster, the Mazda MX-5, has a whole new look. After 25 years and over 947,00 sales worldwide, the new fourth-generation 2014 Mazda MX-5 (known as the Mazda Miata in the US) has finally been revealed. Shorter, lower and wider than the current model, the new drop top has shed over 100kg in weight and will debut at the Paris Motor Show next month.

The MX-5 will go on sale in the UK early in 2015 at a starting price expected to be in the region of £20,000, that’s similar to the outgoing car.

Engines options remain unconfirmed at this stage but we understand 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre petrol engines featuring the latest SKYACTIV technology will be offered – developing around 130bhp and 165bhp respectively. We do know a six-speed manual gearbox will fitted as standard, with an auto available as an option.

Rumors have also been circulating that Mazda is considering fitting the MX-5 with a diesel engine for the first time, but as yet nothing has been confirmed. It’s a similar situation with a potent high-performance version of the MX-5, however, Mazda’s primary focus at the moment revolves around weight saving and reducing CO2 emissions.

Citroen Divine DS

Citroen has unveiled a new DS concept car and it’s a bit mad. Called the Divine DS, it’s the size of a C4 but carries no Citroen badging. At all. The DS brand is doing rather well at the moment, so it appears to be an attempt to capitalise upon that…

So what is the Divine made up of? The chuffing fast 1.6-litre turbocharged engine from the new Peugeot RCZ R sits under the bonnet of what otherwise appears to be half car, half expensive bauble. Developing 270bhp and 244lb ft of torque, the Divine should certainly be lively to drive.

Aside from the engine, a particular French type of concept madness abounds. The roof has been designed to resemble ‘the scales of a reptile’. The craziness doesn’t end there: its a mixture of opaque and transparent surfaces are intended to play with light, while there’s not actually a rear window.

The effect continues at the front, with a grille made up of ‘floating’ diamond-shaped pieces of chrome which supposedly reflect light. While it all sounds a bit mad, we actually think the Divine looks rather good, and a lot more interesting than the DS4, a car whose replacement it potentially previews.

The madness of the exterior gives way to full-blown lunacy once you’ve opened the doors. ‘Hyper-typage’ is Citroen’s addition to the ever-expanding dictionary of annoying concept words, and refers to the bewildering array of customisation options available. Three ‘dress codes’ (yes, really) for the dashboard and doors are named ‘Mâle’, ‘Parisian Chic’ and ‘Fatale Punk’.

The former uses carbon fibre alongside glazed and burnished leather to give a supposedly ‘highly masculine’ ambience. The second adds silk, satin and beads to the mix, lowering the testosterone levels somewhat. Fatale Punk claims to be the most glamorous, incorporating ‘millions’ of tiny crystals, courtesy of Swarovski.

What else is strange? Well, the dashboard is modelled on a backbone. It folds in half on itself as it slips down into a golden console. Cut stones and gold flecks continue the Divine’s ongoing theme of Versace let loose in an Parisian breaker’s yard.

And you don’t actually have a rear window. A 10.4-inch touchscreen doubles as the driver interface and a rear-view camera. The DS also has new-fangled laser headlights and holographic head-up display.

We’ll see it in the flesh at the Paris motor show early next month. Beautiful outside, bonkers inside. Which bits of the Divine DS should Citroen actually put into production?
