Just after we got word of an SAE-certified Charger Hellcat, prototypes have been spied testing on Detroit roads.

The 707-horsepower Charger will become the world’s most powerful sedan if put into production. Even though its arch-rival, the Chevrolet SS, will get a manual transmission starting in the 2015 model year, I’m becoming increasingly comfortable with the idea of an automatic only Charger Hellcat. The 8-speed automatic is not only a great gearbox, but I love the idea of perfect, launch control starts at every occassion. It’s better than the alternative: wrapping the thing around a telephone pole.

I was already in a wagon state of mind when, driving home on the Lodge freeway after a stop in downtown Detroit, I spotted a camo’d car with manufacturer’s plates up ahead. It was some kind of hatchback or wagon and it had a Blue Oval on the hatch/tailgate so it was undoubtedly a Ford.

As I passed it, it was obviously a five door wagon. I couldn’t get a great look at the front end because of traffic and because it peeled off onto I-94 but from what I caught in the rear view mirror it looked like the new Fusion’s Aston Martinish front end. Checking what the wagon version of the Fusion’s European cousin, the Mondeo, looks like, and comparing it to what I saw and the one photo that I was able to shoot, I’m pretty sure that this is close to the same car. From the way the hatch splits the taillights and the location of the exhausts, and from what I can make out of the contouring on the mystery car’s flanks, I’ll go out on a limb and say that this is the new Fusion station wagon. Other pics of the new Mondeo Estate fit my recollection of what the car looked like. What say you?

Honda/Acura fansite Temple of VTEC has a series of spy photos of the Acura RLX taken in China, revealing the car’s interior details, and one lone exterior shot.

As you can see, the car is non-descript in that special Acura sort of way The faux-BMW Hoffmeister kink is there at the rear window, while the front is indistinguishable from the rest of the lineup. The interior looks well finished, but again, there’s little to distinguish it from the rest of the pack. Tomorrow, we’ll get a proper look at the RLX when it’s unveiled at the L.A. Auto Show.
