Toyota has revealed the first details on its new TS040 Hybrid Le Mans prototype. The car will be competing against the Audi R18 e-tron quattro and Porsche 919 Hybrid in the 2014 World Endurance Championship, which includes the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The guys at Switzer Performance have managed to extract 1,212 horsepower from a Nissan GT-R. That’s about double what a stock R35 GT-R is making, but more importantly it’s more than what a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is making!

A prototype for BMW’s next-generation X6 crossover coupe was recently spotted, and we have a video of it. The new vehicle is expected to debut later this year, and you can bet a high-performance X6 M model will return.

You'll find all of this and more in today's car news headlines from around the High Gear Media network, right here at Motor Authority.
