    Become The Ultimate Playboy: AMG Gran Turismo 6 Concept Car & Boat Combo

    To recognize the 15th anniversary of the Gran Turismo franchise, Mercedes’ AMG division crafted a “virtual” car in the form of the AMG Vision Gran Turismo. It makes perfect sense, because it’s a car you’re only ever going to be able to drive in Gran Turismo 6. So naturally, they’ve made a boat to go along with it. Enter the Cigarette Racing 50? Vision GT Concept.

    In concert with the Cigarette Racing Team, AMG has stuck its logos on a 50-foot boat with two 1650 hp Mercury Racing engines which is set for a top speed of about 140 mph. That doesn’t sound terrifying at all. And it’s all being presented at the Miami International Boat Show this weekend!

    Unlike the car, which belongs to Mercedes and no one else, you buy this “one-of-a-kind” boat. For $1.5 million. And that price includes the Gran Turismo decal on the back.

    What!? The First Toyota FT-1 Concept Test Drive Is Available To Everyone (VIDEO)

    The FT-1 Concept received a lot of attention when it was first unveiled in Detroit, and immediately sparked speculations that it was a preview of Toyota’s much talked-about Supra revival.

    However, you don’t need to wait around for the Japanese manufacturer to actually start making it in order to get a rough feel for what it’s like, because a drivable version is available in Gran Turismo 6 (GT6).

    Gran Turismo 6 Vision Concept Sees VW Pimp Up The Scirocco!

    While all car-(…and shoe) making companies participating in the Gran Turismo 6 Vision project have the creative freedom to conceive whatever type of vehicle they want for the series, we imagine that they also want their designs to retain strong ties with their respective brands.

    We could be wrong, since for the time being, Volkswagen has limited shared information on its GT6 Vision Concept to the following single sketch, but the first thing we thought upon seeing it was a dynamic and futuristic interpretation of the Scirocco coupe-hatchback. What do you think?

    According to the most recent report, VW doesn’t plan to replace the Scirocco with an all new model before 2017, but it will refresh it with a heavy facelift later this year.

    If Built – The Red Bull X2014 May Be The Fastest Car EVER!

    Take the best Formula 1 designer in the world and ask him to build a car with no restrictions whatsoever. The Red Bull X2014 is born…

    This is the new concept from Red Bull, the X2014 built by F1 designer Adrian Newey.

    His previous designs have been the RedBull X2010 and the second was the follow-up X2011, which recorded a frightlnly fast 3:10 Nurburgring lap time in Gran Turismo 5, which is as closest simulation to real life racing.

    The Red Bull X2014 will appear in the Gran Turismo 6 “X Challenge” game mode. No details have been released on the speed but if the last one is anything to go by this could well be the fastest car in the Gran Turismo franchise and the fastest on the planet if it was ever to be built. 

    Oh, Lord we hope Red Bull build it!
