Not many of us will have the chance to test the new Zonda Revolucion revealed by Pagani the other day. Then again, it is also true that not many of us will actually have the chance to drive any of the Pagani models.
So, all we can do is enjoy those cool videos that feature models like the Zonda F. For example, this video (above) offers you the chance to hear the incredible sound developed by a Zonda F fitted with Cinque spec aero upgrades and the titanium exhaust.
Launched in 2005, Zonda F is powered by the usual 7.3-liter V-12 engine found in all Zonda models. The engine delivers a total of 620 horsepower - 650 in the Clubsport version - and can sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, then top out at a speed of 214 mph.
The recent E3 games conference held in Los Angeles, California this year gave us a good look at some of the upcoming racing video games that are all in the pipeline.
We’ve already seen previews of Gran Turismo 6, Forza 5, and even Need for Speed: Rivals. But there’s still one more game that’s looking to turn some heads.
This one comes Ubisoft and it’s called "The Crew.” If you watch the dedicated preview trailer of the game, you’d think that you were watching the first Fast & Furious movie again. But instead of the old Honda S2000’s they used in the movie, you get the treat of being behind the wheel of a heavily-modified Chevrolet Camaro.
The Crew has been classified as an open-world car action game, which means that there’s probably a strong reliance on online-play wherein you gather up your own outlaw crew with the objective of doing a multitude of law-breaking jobs.
Combine the detailed car customization program with the chance to play your own Fast and Furious storyline, and you have a game that definitely caught our attention.

Mercedes has just start production of the new-generation S-Class, but along with the images from the production plant, it "accidentally" revealed the AMG version of the luxury sedan, making us believe that an official debut is getting closer.
As you can see from this video, the new S63 AMG will offer no big surprises: you are just looking at a new S-Class with the usual AMG updates, like bigger air intakes, marked side sills, a new rear bumper, upgraded wheels and tinted indicators in the mirrors. For the rear, there is also a new exhaust system with four tailpipes.
Under the hood, AMG will place a new twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-8 engine that will deliver somewhere between 536 and 550 horsepower.
Rumors suggest that the new S63 AMG will be making its world debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, but we expect some details on it a little bit sooner.
At the 2010 Paris Auto Show, Audi unveiled a 402-horsepower Quattro Concept Car, which made quite an impression on the masses. Now, for the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, Audi is preparing a successor for the concept.
Apparently this will be the next step made by the company in its attempt to resurrect the legendary Sport Quattro of 1984 and to add a new sports car to its lineup.
The new Quattro concept will feature a radical look and will be sharper and more sculpted than the previous version. It will be built on an A5 platform and will feature a lightweight body that will combine carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP), aluminum and magnesium. This will keep the total weight down to about 2,800 pounds.
Under the hood, Audi will install a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 engine with an output of about 650 horsepower. Of course, permanent all-wheel drive is mandatory and the new concept should go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds.
