Jaguar has been staging quite the comeback turning what was once a stodgy, decaying marque into a high performance powerhouse that is putting the British motoring back on the map in a big way. This Thursday, Jaguar will fully unveil their most incredible Special Operations project, a collection of six Lightweight E-Types.

Hand-built in England by Jaguar Heritage, the "new" E-Types will be available for sale as period competition vehicles of which six will be built and sold. The cars will feature a six-cylinder XK engine, aluminum block, wide-angle aluminum cylinder head, and a laundry list of components, all made of aluminum to the original spec.

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.

Volkswagen Golf R 400

Looks like Volkswagen isn't going to let its stablemates at Audi and Lamborghini have all the high-speed fun. They've put together a supercar-grade Golf Concept (yes, we said Golf) that can certainly keep up with some of the fastest marques out there. The Golf R 400 can hit 62 mph from 0 in just 3.9 seconds and hit a top speed of almost 174 mph. That all comes from a 2.0L four-cylinder that is turbocharged and has 395 hp 332 lb-ft of torque. Will they build it? Probably not, but here's hoping it builds enough attention for a limited run in the near future.
