Nissan Titan Warrior Concept

Truck that speaks for itself.  The recently revealed Nissan Titan Warrior Concept vehicle took everyone by storm with it's mouth dropping designed.  A mixture of the Raptor and Reaper then times it by 10.  You have the Titan Warrior.  

Everything about the truck was immaculate.  This particular concept will stay where it is but gives many truck enthusiast a glimpse of what the recently release Nissan Titan can be.  The cummings diesel in the new XD had been getting many intrigue and it's just the beginning.  With a slight lift, aftermarket wheels, bigger tires, exhaust and a mean looking facelift, who wouldn't want to drive this?  You'll have your hard core Chevy, Ford & Dodge die hard fans dissing this truck but deep down, you know they won't hesitate when you hand over the keys.  

Below is a video made by Nissan.  Here brief information will be mentioned about this concept vehicles.  Who knows, maybe one day Nissan will decide to make this a truck we can own.  Till then, we can just dream about it.

Gymkhana 7 by Ken Block

Highly anticipated video from Ken Block called Gymkhana 7 was just released earlier today and did not disappoint.  

This custom made 1965 "Notchback" Ford Mustang with 845hp took on the streets of L.A.  Here he showed off great control drifting through the city making some ruckus.  

What is more impressive than drifting through obstacles is that this is the ONLY all wheel drive performance Mustang ever built.  Not to delay any further, check out the video below of this immaculate showcase of vehicle control tearing up the streets of L.A.  

Like to thank all who was involved in the project and making it possible.  All footage and information were gathered through online sources.

Bentley Motorsports Returns to North America

 I’d like to share some exciting news straight from the masterminds at Bentley 

 

 

-Continental GT3 to compete in North America with Dyson Racing

-First race to be Pirelli World Challenge round at Road America

-Development over 2014 in preparation for 2015 championship

-New Continental GT3 race car on display at NYIAS

 

(New York, 16th April 2014) After an impressive performance at the opening round of the Blancpain Endurance Series in Monza, Italy last weekend, the new Bentley Continental GT3 is set to reintroduce the celebrated British marque to North American motorsports with Dyson Racing. The premier sports car racing team in the U.S., Dyson will race a pair of Continental GT3s in the second half of the 2014 Pirelli World Challenge in preparation for a full season of competition in 2015.

 

The new partnership returns Bentley to the racetracks of North America for the first time since 2003. The Continental GT3 will be on display on the Bentley stand at the New York International Auto Show on April 16 and 17. Bentley’s Director of Motorsport, Brian Gush, comments from the show:

 

“Now that our European motorsport programme is up and running, securing a return to racing in our biggest market is the natural next step. It’s extremely exciting to be back here with a racecar, and I’m delighted to be working with the Dyson team. Their operation reflects and embodies so many Bentley values, and I’m very confident in their abilities. This venture is the next step in the Continental GT3 plan, which we hope will eventually see our customers racing in Bentleys all around the world.”


Pending testing and development results, Bentley’s U.S. racing programme will begin with the entry of a single Continental GT3 in the Road America round of the Pirelli World Challenge at Elkhart Lake in Wisconsin on June 21. A second car will be added later in the season.


Development work and assignments for the single-driver sprint races will be shared among Chris Dyson and long-time Dyson Racing team members Guy Smith and Butch Leitzinger. The latter are also veteran Bentley Boys, Leitzinger as a driver of the class-winning Bentley EXP-8 at Le Mans in 2001 and 2002, Smith as a driver of the Le Mans overall-winning Bentley Speed 8 in 2003. Smith, who was also a development driver for the current Bentley Continental GT3 program and who is now piloting one in five races of the 2014 European Blancpain Series, will drive with Dyson Racing Team Bentley as his European commitments permit.


Team Principal Rob Dyson comments:


“Our team is proud to be demonstrating to Americans that Bentley is not only one of the great names in automotive history, but also today the producer of the finest high-performance luxury cars available. As Dyson Racing begins its fourth decade in professional motorsports, it’s an honor for all of us on the team to be racing the Continental GT3 with Bentley in the Pirelli World Challenge.”
