    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).

    Official: Gran Turismo 6 Patch Comes with Four New Cars

    The team at Polyphony Digital has released an update for Gran Turismo 6 that adds the second part of the Red Bull X Challenge and four new cars.

    The Red Bull X Challenge is available in the career mode and features Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel, who teaches players how to drive an “authentic Formula car.” As part of the challenge, two new versions of the Gran Turismo Red Bull X2014 are available in the game’s virtual dealerships.

    Following rumors, players will also be able to pick up a new version of the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo by taking part in a new seasonal event. The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Gran Turismo Concept, which we covered at the 2013 SEMA Show, will be available in the game’s dealerships. Gamers will also have the opportunity to win the car in a seasonal event.

    Finally, as a bonus to gamers, the developers will be gifting a car from the year of each gamer’s birth within one week of their birthday. It’s unclear if the gifted car will be chosen at random or if each year gets a predetermined car.

    The version 1.04 patch should be available for download now, so power up your PS3 and start gaming.

    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!
