We traveled to the Circuit of the Americas to drive the new 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe. With a twin-turbo V-8 engine rated at 560 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque, power wasn't in short supply. From a standstill we hit 60 mph in 4.1 seconds, and the optional carbon-ceramic brakes slow things down in a hurry. There's no question the M6 Gran Coupe is a beast of a luxury sport sedan.

The Bugatti Veyron is nearing the end of its production run, and the automaker might be planning a much more powerful version for a final sendoff. This Super Veyron could produce upwards of 1,600 horsepower, along with shaving 550 pounds of weight from the standard Veyron Super Sport. The special edition's price tag would be much higher than the already insanely expensive Veyron models.

After a grueling 24 hours Audi took the checkered flag for its 12th win in 14 years at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The race was filled with ups and downs, from the tragic death of Aston Martin race car driver Allan Simonsen, to the number-two Audi crossing the finish line to win it all. There wasn't a moment that wasn't full of action.
