Bentley Continental GT3-R

Coming off their huge win in Silverstone, Bentley announces a street-legal version of their GT3 racer with the fastest accelerating Bentley ever produced, the GT3-R.

The Continental might be a big GT, but the engineers have retuned the car's 4.0L V8 and have accomplished a 3.6 second 0-60 time, which is one hell of an engineering feat for such a large coupe. The GT3-R can produce 572 hp and can reach a top speed of 170 mph. Also contributing to the car's performance is a loss in overall weight as the car is 100 kg lighter than their stock GT V8S. All the cars will be painted in a gloss white finish with green accents and will be limited to 300 examples worldwide.

Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo

Forget Geneva or Detroit, Gran Turismo has become the epicenter for the latest and greatest concepts that aren't just eye candy for the masses, but concepts you can actually drive...digitally, of course.

The latest contribution to the Vision Gran Turismo series is a wild concept from Nissan called Concept 2020. Conceived by a team from the company's European design division, the 2020 made such an impact that Nissan's Technical Centre took notice and provided input on the creation. Only time will tell if this is the face of the new GT-R, but with all the excitement from Nissan Japan we can only assume it definitely is a big hint of what's to come. See the car in motion after the jump and drive it yourself when it's available in Gran Turismo 6 next month.

BMW's "Sport Utility Coupe" gets a redesign for the 2015 model year and it has arrived with an aggressive new design that touts more power, and even more space. Though its design may have been considered polarizing, fans of the car have spoken and they've made their presence felt with sales of over 250,000 X6s globally so it looks like the X6 is definitely here to stay.

New to the second generation model is a much stronger and athletic look that follows the styling of the recent BMW design language. A new, twin circular headlight design complements the bold kidney grille and can be spec'd with standard Xenons or the optional LED headlights. Behind the grille is two new engine options: a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline 6 which is available in the xDrive35i and the new rear-wheel-drive sDrive35i. Both cars are capable of a 0-60 time of six seconds. The top of the line model will boast BMW's latest V8 in xDrive50i which is a 4.4L TwinPower Turbo V8 that produces 445 hp and a 0-60 time of 4.8 seconds. The 2015 X6 is due to hit showrooms later this year.
