As America prepares to witness the merger of the American Le Mans Series and Grand Am into the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, Ford is preparing its weapon of war: this Daytona prototype powered by a racing version of the automaker’s familiar 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6.

Swedish supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg has finally revealed some details on its next creation, a 1,400-horsepower Agera dubbed the “One:1”.
