Nissan Created A R/C GT-R Controlled Via A DualShock4 Controller

Keen eye readers will probably notice something peculiar about the Nissan GT-R featured here. Take a closer look and you will realize that it had opaque red windows. Weird, isn’t it? Even it has a clear as day windshield, opaque windows do not make it a safe car to drive, much less driving it at speeds on the track. Well, the thing is, this Nissan GT-R is not any ordinary GT-R; it is a fully remote control Nissan GT-R, cleverly called Nissan GT-R /C. R/C. Get it, get it?

Toyota GR HV SPORTS Can Switch Between Auto And H-Gate Manual Shift At The Press Of A Button

What see here is NOT a Ferrari, although I do find it bearing an uncanny resemblance with one of the Prancing Horse marque’s exotic ride. This is the Toyota GR HV SPORTS Concept Car, a sports car which you can enjoy without bearing all the guilt of tainting the air because, hybrid. Yeah, it is a hybrid car, alright, but while alleviating your Eco-conscious (somewhat…), it still has a good’ol IC for, you know, the oomph. Toyota said the GR HV SPORTS has a design reminiscing that of Toyota Gazoo Racing’s TS050 Hybrid racing (hence, the ‘GR’ in the moniker), but strangely, it looks nothing like the TS050 as far as design is concerned. Unless you count targa top a design similarity, but really, don’t push it. It looks nothing remotely like the TS050. Period.

It’s Official. As Of September 20, GT2 RS Is The Fastest 911 Of All Time

Porsche fans wanting the fastest 911 ever made without making the workshop their permanent residence, look no further than the Porsche 911 GT2 RS. The road-approved sports car made history on September 20 when it took on the 20.6-kilometer (12.8 miles) Nürburgring Nordschleife, making it in a record time of 6 minutes and 47.3 seconds with an average speed of 184.11 km/h (114.40 mph). The monumental lap time not only surpassed the company’s set goal of 7 minutes and 5 seconds, but it also wiped the previous record for road-approved sports cars set by Lars Kern from Germany and Nick Tandy from the UK with the best timing of 6 minutes, 50 seconds.

One-Of-A-Kind ‘Rally-Spec’ Bentley Continental GT Sold For £40,800

In one episode of the National Geographic’s TV show, Supercar Megabuild, a Bentley Continental GT was ‘brutally’ put under the knife, turning it from a luxury road car into an apocalypse-worthy, luxury off-road vehicle. It was an act not all Bentley enthusiasts will condone and this being a Bentley, nobody would have fancy an off-road version anyways, unless, of course, it is an official factory example. Me, on the other hand, kind of love it, but I could be the minority and minor love it did get because, despite the 101 bids it has attracted when this one-of-a-kind ‘rally-spec’ Bentley Continental GT went on the block, it only managed to conclude with a £40,800 sticker (roughly US$55,000), which is lesser than an untouched Bentley Continental GT would have fetched.

Mercedes-AMG Project ONE Is Basically A Formula 1 Car In A Road Car Shell

Some people aspired to be a Formula One race car driver for, you know, the fame and fortune, but if you really love cars, like cars that are as powerful as the hybrid technology offered by today’s Formula 1 race car, the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE is probably the closest anyone will ever get. The obvious pro of this ride is, it looks like a perfectly normal car that assimilate easily with the rest of the traffic. Never mind the exotic and the obvious, million dollar look. At least, you won’t look out of place or get overlooked by big rigs when you are on the road and also, you can at least bring a friend with you unlike a real Formula 1 race car.

Zarooq SandRacer 500GT: A Supercar That Can Take On The Sandy Dunes

If you are going to make a car in a ridiculously rich country where 80 percent of its landmass is desert, it only makes sense to make a supercar that can take on the sandy desert like a boss. The Zarooq SandRacer 500GT is one such coming from United Arab Emirates (UAE). Previously a concept, this crazy off-road capable sports car from the young and ambitious middle east sports car maker has reportedly commenced production. Not only that, it specifications to have been bumped up according to a report. The concept from two years ago had a V6, but in the production version, it gets a growling 6.2L V8 unit that kicks out 525 horses and 487 lb-ft (660 Nm) of torque.

Jon Olsson’s Latest Ride, A Custom Wraith, Is A Very Angry 810HP Beast

Affectionately called “George the Rolls,” this “slightly” custom Rolls-Royce Wraith coupe is Swedish skier, adventurer, car enthusiast and apparently now, a YouTube star, Jon Olsson‘s latest ride. Jon claims it as slightly custom, but to us, this thing is anything but lightly customized. Really. Just take a look at it. It is not quite recognizable as a Rolls, much less a Wraith, anymore. Hell, it doesn’t even sounds like a Rolls! But all in a good way, of course. Under the hood, the stock V12 twin-turbo motor was massaged to deliver 810 horses by The Netherlands’s Absolute Motors and it was dyno-tested as a proved that it is now a living, breathing 810HP beast. Continue reading Jon Olsson’s Latest Ride, A Custom Wraith, Is A Very Angry 810HP Beast

Don’t Modified A BMW M4 Coupé For Track Until You Have Read This!

If you are planning to turn a lovely BMW M4 into a track-going beast, well, don’t, because BMW wants to save you the hassle with this tuned-for-track 2018 BMW M4 GT4. That’s right. The luscious M4 has a track variant and it wouldn’t be anything less of a ‘yay’ for track enthusiasts and racing car teams. As the name suggests, the GT4 is built upon the M4 Coupé, which means it inherited the engine and transmission, including control electronics, from the M4 Coupé, but being a tuned-for-track ride, it gets some serious upgrades like carbon hood from the BMW M4 GTS, carbon-fiber doors, motorsport-specific splitters and rear wings, a racing exhaust system, and seat, brakes and pedal box borrowed from BMW M6 GT3.
