Bayern receive boost ahead of Frankfurt match

An interesting statistic: Louis Van Gaal, coach at Bayern Munich, has exactly the same record in the Bundesliga as his predecessor, Jurgen Klinsmann, had at this point last season. He will be hoping to move out of the former coach's shadow, however, with a win at home to Eintracht Frankfurt tomorrow.

Kia begins big eco push

BMW started it with EfficientDynamics, Mercedes has BlueEFFICIENCY, while Skoda uses GreenLine and Ford favours ECOnetic. Over at Volkswagen it's BlueMotion. What do all these tags have in common – apart from an appalling disregard for rules of punctuation and capitalisation? They're all eco-brands of the major motor manufacturers.

Battery-powered Benz range unveiled in Frankfurt

BMW shows its Vision at Frankfurt

BMW's latest concept car, The Vision EfficientDynamics, will be seen in the metal for the first time at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The complaint that the motor manufacturers show dramatic concept cars and then disappoint with watered-down production models is probably as old as the industry itself but here the gap between BMW's low-slung slinky Vision EfficientDynamics and its recent production cars such as the lumpy X6 and Gran Turismo, is especially marked.

Stephen Foley: Why we need bonus rules

Maserati gets ready to show the GranCabrio at Frankfurt

This is Maserati's new convertible. What's different about it? Well, it will be the first full four-seat open car that the Italian manufacturer has built in-house. "Rear passengers are not merely supporting actors but co-stars of the journey," the company says. Corny, but likely to be true, because the GranCabrio is a real looker.

Liverpool confirm Kyrgiakos deal

Bentley reveals new Mulsanne

Album: Mahler, Four Movements – FRSO/Järvi, (Virgin)

Paavo Järvi's curious Mahler programme with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra brings together the original versions of three symphonic movements that were either once intended for different purposes ("Blumine" and "Totenfeier") or formed part of an incomplete work (the "Adagio" from the 10th Symphony).
