Zagato has came out with their new design to transform Bentley Continental GT’s into something much better. If you give them your Continental GT and a lot of cash they will turn it into this! The Bentley Continental GTZ Zagato keeps most of the original cars powerful mechanics. The outside features a two-tone paint job and curvy body with sharp fenders. Right now we don’t know much about the car, there will be more information after the 2008 Salon International de l’Auto (International Geneva Motor Show). Until then enjoy some more pictures.

The G-Power Hurricane (Є240,000) is a modified E60 BMW M5. The twin-supercharged M5 produces 730 horsepower and was clocked at 225 mph, making it the fastest street legal BMW to date. In perfect conditions the G-Power team expects the car could push around 250 mph. I would choose this as a get-a-way car if I ever robbed a bank. [via] G Power BMW M5 image gallery and press release.

This Audi R8 has been upgraded by Germany’s Abt Sportsline. Since the R8 is already a vehicle of perfection Abt did very little engine work. Most of the modifications were done to the body which include:
- Carbon fiber skirts and rear spoiler.
- Replacement front and rear clips that tone down the oversized factory grillework.
- Front openings are now angled and feature colored CF inserts.
- A new rear bumper cover w/ diffuser-style bottom, smaller vents, and outlets for the exhaust tips.

We all knew it was comin and now is finally here, the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8. The SRT8 Challenger will feature a 6.1-Liter Hemi V8 that pumps out 425hp and 420 lb.-ft. of torque. The SRT8 is expected to reach 0-60 in the low fives as well as a impressive quarter mile time of under 14 seconds. This monster will weigh in at 4,140lb but will sit on forged aluminum 20-inch wheels as well as a set of four-piston Brembo brakes at all four corners. Unfortunately it seems the first run of Challenger SRT8′s will be controlled by Dodge’s five-speed AutoStick transmission but with a Hemi under the hood it shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit just wrapped up. This car is one of my favorites from the event. The Audi R8 V12 TDI concept sports a 6.0L V-12 diesel, with 500-hp, with 738 lb-ft of torque. It can go 62mph in 4.2 seconds and maxes out at 186mph, the R8 concept also manages to get 23 MPG. For those of you in Europe the combination of a 29,000-psi direct-inject fuel injection system, particulate filters and urea injection allows this monster to pass 2014 EuroVI emissions standards. More pictures after the break.

Rolls Royce Celebrated its 100th birthday with a Special Edition Phantom; it is a modern spin on their best known model. The first Silver Ghost concept appeared in 1906 and hit production in 1907 with a six-cylinder 40/50 model engine. The car was well known for its supreme engineering and stealthy engine. The new “Silver” Phantom’s accents are in solid silver, including the retractable hood ornament, key fobs and fountain pen. Only 25 will be made making it almost as valuable as the original from 1907. [via]
