After a disastrous season in this year’s World Endurance Championship, in which it contested just one race, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Nissan has decided it's best not to proceed with another humiliating year and thus has ended its endurance racing campaign. The trouble for Nissan is that its front-wheel-drive racer simply failed to perform, though this was due more so to a defective hybrid system than its radical layout.

BMW may finally have a performance-oriented 7-Series sedan to take on the likes of the Audi S8 and Mercedes-AMG S63 and S65 duo. The car is expected to be an M Performance model called the M760Li and powered by a V-12 engine.

The Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible built for 1970 and ‘71 is one of the rarest and most sought after muscle cars ever produced. Incredibly, two of them are now coming up for auction.

You'll find all of these stories and more in today's car news, right here at Motor Authority.
