Unveiled earlier this week, the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO LM P1 is, to put it bluntly, one of the craziest ideas to pull out onto a race track in decades. The twin-turbo, V6, kinetic-hybrid, front engined, front-wheel-drive car puts out over 1,200 horsepower (895 kW). Yes, you read that correctly: A front engined, front-wheel-drive racecar. Obviously, we need to take a look under the hood. Read More

Lamborghini has confirmed its intention to tackle the Blancpain Endurance Series in 2015 with its Huracan GT3. The hottest Huracan will be rubbing panels with McLaren's 650S GT3 and BMW's Z4 GT3 across five different tracks, including the legendary Nurburgring. Read More
McLaren is really taking the time to pat itself on the back for winning Le Mans back in 1995. The P1 GTR is being billed as an homage to the F1 GTR Le Mans winner, and we thought that'd be the extent of its anniversary celebration.

After seeing Chevy's sneak preview of the Chaparral 2X Vision Gran Turismo, we got the idea that it was going to be the most extreme Vision Gran Turismo yet, both in terms of styling and technology.
