Bentley has released a driver-focused version of its Continental GT in the form of the new limited edition GT3-R. With a 100 kg weight saving over the standard car GT V8, the GT3-R is Bentley's take on what a road-going Gentleman's Racer should be.  Read More

The TOSA buses charge as they stand at a bus stop

It’s one thing to invent an electric bus, a hydrogen car, or other green transportation technology, but quite another for it to work in the real world. For example, the Trolleybus Optimisation Système Alimentation (TOSA) flash-charging electric bus system may be the most brilliant idea ever, but if it can’t stay in the black, then might as well be drawn by diesel-powered horses.

The Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo is Nissan's glimpse at the supercar of the future

“Cor, I’d like to take that for a spin.” It's what most of us think when looking at concept cars, but the chances of that ever happening are usually less than slim.

That’s because next month, the just revealed supercar concept becomes available for download for Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo 6 video game for the Playstation console.  Read More

The Audi team proved that it knows how to win

For the last decade and a half, Audi has dominated the World Endurance Championship racing. It would be easy to dismiss yesterday's 13th Le Mans 24 Hour Race win for the company in 16 years as "same stuff, different year." In that time, it has significantly changed the world's perception of both diesel engines and hybrid power trains. Yet yesterday's win is probably its finest achievement.  Read More
