After driving the 2015 Nissan GT-R in Japan late last year, we finally got to test the car on U.S. soil. We’re not talking about the insane NISMO edition, but a regular model, still one of the quickest road cars at any price.

Ford’s Australian division has revealed the last of its Falcon muscle sedans built by its FPV performance division. The car features a supercharged version of the Mustang’s 5.0-liter V-8 and is officially rated at 470 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque.

Lincoln is looking at entering new segments as it races to catch up with rivals, and one of the brand’s new entries could be a rear-wheel-drive sports car or sedan based on the platform developed for the 2015 Ford Mustang. Unfortunately, we won’t see any such car for a while, even if it is approved, as Lincoln is focusing on the most popular segments such as the compact crossover segment.

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.
