Fast and Furious 6 is set to arrive on theaters on May 24th and we’ve already seen lots of trailers for it, but of course none of them were as impressive as the actual movie will be --- at least we hope so. Today it’s time for a new trailer - the final one - that will make the wait even more unbearable.
The sixth installment of the movie series brings back three of the greatest names: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson. Fan favorites — Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez — are also going to make their return. The movie’s plot starts on the idea that Dom (Diesel) and Brian (Walker) aren’t able to return home due to a series of previous problems. Meanwhile, Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary and he needs the team to help out.
Please remember that the Fast and Furious 7 has already been confirmed for July 11, 2014, so we have even more to look forward to.
2013 marks McLaren’s 50th anniversary and as a celebration of the event, McLaren will showcase a selection of legendary models from the company’s heritage collection at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.
This lineup will include some of the most famous race and championship-winning models from the brand’s illustrious past, as well as the new 12C Can-Am Edition which was announced last year at the Pebble Beach Concours.
The McLaren race team participated in Can-Am racing throughout the 1960s and 1970s, during which the race team claimed five back-to-back world championships between 1969 and 1974, making it the most successful team in the history of the championship.
With its 630-horsepower 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine, the current Can-Am is the most powerful 12C produced to date. It will be produced in strictly limited numbers, as McLaren announced that no more than 30 units will be produced globally.

The new GRID 2 racing game will be officially released on May 28th, but it has been available for pre-ordered since March 6th. Until now, we have had numerous trailers, but all of them were for the single-player variant. With the latest one, we brought you a trailer revealing the European locations of the game.
The multiplayer trailer reveals a few more details on the next game. First, you can see the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway Circuit in-game - the spiritual home of American motorsport for over a century. Second, you can also see the livery editor in action, which features up to 6 billion different design combinations, so players can stamp their own identity online.
The game modes presented in the trailer are Checkpoint racing in Paris and street racing in Chicago.
All we can say after watching this new trailer is that we can’t wait playing the new GRID 2.
Porsche’s comeback in Le Mans was a long time in the making. As the automaker with the most wins in the race’s history at 16, Porsche returning to the scene of its glory has put the clock on its rivals.
But it wasn’t the only racing series the automaker was considering.
Before deciding on a Le Mans comeback, Porsche R&D boss, Wolfgang Hatz, told Autocar that the company also considered Formula One. In the end, however, the decision was made to return to Le Mans because conditions in Formula one were so "extreme that it cannot result in any development in our road car understanding."
It’s a valid reason, especially considering that Formula One technology seemingly has a life of its own and it didn’t make sense for Porsche to spend valuable resources and finances in a series that wouldn’t translate to its production development.
So there it is. Formula One’s loss - if it cares - is Le Mans’ gain. And with the competitiveness of the latter in the past few years, the return of the king will only make Le Mans even more fun to watch.

We have brought you many spy shots of the next Mercedes S-Class, but this is the first video that shows the car on public roads. The car is still wearing camouflage, but no need to worry, as we will get to see it in all of its glory in May.
The new 2014 S-Class will feature a new design language inspired by the F800 Style Concept, but at the same time, you should expect some elements from the recently launched models, like the one-piece headlamps with LED daytime running lights we have seen in the new E-Class.
Under the hood, rumors suggest that Mercedes will likely place a revised version of the current engine lineup. This means that customers will be able to choose between a revised twin-turbocharged 4.7-liter V-8 engine with 429 horsepower; a 510-horsepower twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-12; or an AMG twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-8 that delivers somewhere between 536 and 550 horsepower.
Hyundai’s record-setting performance with Rhys Millen at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb last year was met with widespread praise from all corners of the industry.
The record time of 9:46.164 was blistering to say the least and gave the Korean automaker something to shoot for when it returns to Pikes Peak later this year.
In preparation for its Pikes Peak run, Hyundai has released a pair of videos on how it plans to have a successful encore to its 2012 performance. The early discussions call for dropping the weight of its racer by about 1,000 pounds, using titanium and carbon fiber. On top of that, Hyundai is preparing a modified version of its Genesis Coupe V-6 engine; one that will produce 900 horsepower.
With the tremendous success it had last year, a lot is riding on Hyundai to have a successful encore. Whether or not it does remains to be seen, but what we do know is that Pikes Peak is scheduled for June 30, 2013 and whatever questions we might have now will be answered then.

In the latest episode of his show, Jay Leno got behind the wheel of one of his personal cars: an original 1963 Jaguar E-Type (XKE to be more precise). This is the second classic E-Type owned by Leno; the other one is a Roadster model that is heavily modified.
However, as Jay Leno is a big fan of the original cars, he bought this 1963 XKE from a lady which owned it for 50 years.
The 1963 XKE is powered by a 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that delivers a total of 265 horsepower. The model could sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 7.1 seconds and could go up to a top speed of 149 mph – all respectable numbers for an older car.
Check this video to see what Jay Leno has to say about this amazing sports car and if he is pleased or not about his acquisition.
