2020 Lamborghini V12 Vision Gran Turismo
Just when you thought it was safe to call the recently unveiled Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo one of the edgiest VGT cars to come out of the video game racing program, a certain Italian automaker comes out and smacks you over the head with its own Vision Gran Turismo. This one comes from Lamborghini, and it’s called the V12 Vision Gran Turismo. For a company that’s known for designing some of the most aerodynamically outrageous cars in the world, the V12 Vision Gran Turismo makes all of those models look like doodles on a sketch pad. It doesn’t hurt that the V12 VGT carries the same powertrain as Lambo’s other recent madness-of-a-creation, the Sian FKP 37. Just like every other Vision Gran Turismo model that has come before, the Lamborghini V12 Vision Gran Turismo is not earmarked for real-world production. It will instead be available in Gran Turismo Sport for the PlayStation 4 in 2020.
2019 Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo
Not content with its current lineup of models, Jaguar has announced the arrival of its latest masterpiece, the completely digital Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo. It’s not a real supercar that will terrorize roads in the near future; the Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo is a low-slung all-electric supercar that will terrorize all the hapless racers that get in its way in the Gran Turismo Sport racing game. The sleek two-door supercar takes design cues from a lot of Jaguar’s existing model lineup. It’s also powered by a stuffing of electric motors that combine to produce four-digit levels of power. In other words, the Jaguar Vision Gran Turismo is a monster, and this monster will make its way to the video game world by the end of November.
The Porsche Taycan Turbo S Was Made to Be Driven Hard…in Gran Turismo Sport
There’s something about car launches these days. The Land Rover Defender received its own Lego Technic set right as it was taking a bow in Frankfurt, and something similar can be said about Porsche’s Taycan.
Porsche’s first all-electric sports car made its public debut at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, although we knew everything there was to know about it from its online reveal, yet Porsche kept to work with Japanese video game development studio Polyphony Digital Inc. towards the Taycan’s debut in Gran Turismo Sport.
5 New JDM Cars Added to Gran Turismo Sport Via This Month’s Free Update
There once was a time when Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) cars were deemed as forbidden fruits for a lot of American buyers. We can blame the Imported Motor Vehicle Safety Compliance Act of 1988 for that, but, in a roundabout way, we can also thank the same law, or at least a small concession within the law that indicated that any car can enter the U.S., fully exempt from federal safety and emissions standards, provided that said car is 25 years old according to the date of manufacture. This concession is important because a lot of the sought-after JDM cars from the ’80s and ‘90s have been finding their way into the U.S. market in recent years. Most of these cars can be bought for $10,000 to $25,000 depending on the model, but for those without that kind of scratch, Gran Turismo Sport is offering a cheaper alternative in the form of a new downloadable car pack made up exclusively of some of our favorite JDM cars. The new pack is a JDM fanatic’s dream come to (virtual) life, and you better believe that I’m one of those people.
Two Cool Car Games You Should Be Stoked For That Are Not NFS Heat
In a world where social media dictates the tempo of everyday life, it’s still quite astonishing what sort of fruits a proper marketing campaign can actually bear, whether we’re talking about already launched products or drop-by-drop teasers and trailers meant to keep people on their toes regarding a particular item. Let’s take games, for example. This fall’s hottest topic when it comes to new car games is undoubtedly the launch of Need for Speed Heat, the latest installment in a franchise that is turning 25 this year.
However, the car gaming world is so diverse these days that there are other options out there other than NFS, Forza, and the lot. YES, there are. Two such games have been presented at this year’s Gamescom; they’re called SnowRunner and Overpass and yes, both offer a different take on the off-roading side of car gaming.
Get ready for the 24th installment in the long-running Need for Speed racing game series, Need for Speed: Heat, a new title that will be released this year for PC, PS4 and Xbox. Its release coincides with the franchise’s 25th anniversary, so we really do hope it’s going to be a good one - oh, and yes, that’s right, a quarter-century has passed since the 1994 launch of the first ever Need for Speed.
Grand Theft Auto VI: What We Know so Far
Whenever there is news of an upcoming Grand Theft Auto game it is BIG news. The current GTA game has so far grossed $6-billion, which is more than any blockbuster movie in history and it’s still being bought today, nearly six years after it was released. Now we know there is a new installment in the works, GTA IV, and this is what we know about it so far.
It’s likely going to feature a multiple city setup that will see the characters travel from one city to another via airplane. Seamless integration of all platforms is also one of the rumors - you’ll essentially even be able to play the game with the best possible graphics settings on your smartphone via streaming and play with people connecting through different platforms. GTA IV will have several main characters which the player will be able to cycle through to advance the story, however there is a chance that one of these characters is a cop or female... or maybe even both.
This and plenty more will be analyzed below in this frenzied quest to uncover as much about the next GTA as possible, a quest that was sparked back in March of 2018 when the YouTube channel “The Know” uploaded a video containing several bits of information about the upcoming Rockstar Games title. Back then the big news was the possible return of the series to a familiar and fan-favorite location.
Boutique carmaker Pagani Automobili has joined forces with CSR 2 in unveiling the stunningly sexy Huayra Roadster BC both online and offline. We’re not surprised, though, because we are living in the digital era, where people can witness events from the comfort of their couch. It goes the same with the Huayra Roadster BC’s launch - fans of the CSR 2 franchise get to try out the car on their smartphone, while the 1% and select members of the press get to see it in the metal.
WRC 8 Career Mode Is Cooler and More Challenging Than Ever

Moreover, the game is set to introduce a couple of changes and perhaps the most significant is a revamped Career Mode that will shape your evolution as a rally driver but also challenge your decision-making and team management skills.

Sennheiser GSP 670 Wireless Gaming Set
You can ask any respectable gamer out there, and you’ll get the same answer: gaming nowadays is not just about rocking the latest graphics card or game console that renders immaculate graphics. Sound plays a massive role too in the player’s immersion into the game world. Fortunately, Sennheiser knows this very well, and its response comes in the form of the GSP 670 Wireless gaming set. Here’s what it brings to the table.
The LEGO Speed Champions Expansion for Forza Horizon 4 Is Everything We Thought It would Be
Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios have proven themselves adept at being purveyors of fun and excitement when it comes to injecting a little wackiness into the Forza video game franchise. This time, the developers of the Forza Horizon 4 are venturing off the beaten path into a world where blocky cars and blocky race tracks reign supreme. Following the success of the Hot Wheels expansion pack on Forza Horizon 3, Microsoft has teamed up with LEGO to unleash the LEGO Speed Champions Expansion Pack. Microsoft dropped the bombshell news at the 2019 E3 Gaming Expo. The Lego Speed Champions DLC for Forza Horizon 4 launches June 13.
GRID Is Making a Comeback This September
Codemasters has revealed an emotional video trailer for the upcoming fourth installment of its GRID franchise, which somehow, unsurprisingly, promises to best all the previous iterations when it comes to pretty much every aspect of the game. Until we get to see what exactly that means, here’s everything you need to know about the new GRID game.
Someone Made Art With TrackMania’s Track Builder and Classical Music
In our search for awesome stuff on the internet we stumbled upon a YouTube video that’s nothing short of pure art. And no, it’s not about a painting or a sculpture. Instead, it shows how mixing a lot of effort with TrackMania’s track builder feature and classical music can lead to a masterpiece.
Fosmon’s Quad Xbox Controller Charging Station Is Every Gamer’s Altar
There’s nothing more annoying than controller batteries failing just when your FIFA 2019 Ultimate Team is close to scoring the match-winning goal or you’re finally overpassing that tough rival in NFS Payback. But there’s a solution that will prevent you from sending the controller crashing into the TV in anger: meet Fosmon’s Quad Pro charging station.
It’s not all good news, though – this gizmo is only compatible with Xbox One, Xbox One S, Xbox One X, and Xbox One Elite controllers, so PlayStation users might want to look elsewhere.
5 Retro Car Games You’ll Love to Play Again
1nsane was launched by Invictus and threw a whole new light on off-road racing. Players were no longer constrained by pre-defined tracks – instead, they raced in vast settings ranging from North America, Asia, and Europe. You also got the option of letting the game randomly generate the environment for an extra pinch of unpredictability.
Get it on GOG.
Pros: countless hours of fun, realistic graphics (including car damage) Cons: some vehicles were fictional, others (...)
Forza Street Mobile Game is Out and You Can Get it for Free
Hype around a possible mobile Forza game was extremely high, even though some people in the know warned that the upcoming title wasn’t what people were expecting. In fact, as it turns out, the new Forza Street game is not even a new game, but rather a rebranding of an older game that Microsoft launched last year, one that never really saw much success, called Miami Street.
Dirt Rally 2.0 might be the best hardcore rally simulation game ever
Codemasters decided to give its popular but ultimately arcade style Dirt series a much more simulation-oriented spin when it launched the first Dirt Rally game in late 2015. Now, a sequel to that first Dirt simulation has been released, called Dirt Rally 2.0, and it seems to have impressed many high profile gaming outlets, as well as a series of driving game loving YouTubers. Some even say it could be the best rally game ever, finally surpassing a game that dates back to 2004 (and many avid rally sim fans still swear by it to this day). I am, of course, talking about Richard Burns Rally (RBR), a game that at the time of its launch was considered ahead of its time in many areas.
