Porsche has obliterated the lap record for the Nürburgring. German racing driver Timo Bernhard took the 919 Evo time-attack car around the 12.9-mile course in just 5:19.55. You'll be stunned after watching the video of his epic run.

Anyone that missed out on last year's Dodge Challenger SRT Demon shouldn't feel too sad. Dodge has just unveiled a new Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye model, and it has almost the same power as the Demon as well as some of its dragstrip technologies.

Nissan has celebrated the 50th anniversary of its GT-R by designing a one-off model with 710 horsepower on tap. Italdesign, which also celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, was tasked with building the car.
