Leaked image of the 2012 Nissan GT-R is up and running in the web and the car is expected to be unveiled later this year. This comes about two months after some spy pictures had revealed one of the two Nissan GT-R prototypes doing some tests at the Nurburgring circuit (in Germany).

The latest photo reveals that the 2012 Nissan GT-R will be coming with minor changes. This includes a modified grille, lighter wheels, LED daytime running lights and a rear diffuser which is said to increase downforce by 10%.

There will also be two new color choices: Aurora Flare Blue Pearl and Nebula Opal Black. The car will be coming with the twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6 engine. We can expect some minor modifications which should enable the engine to produce more than 485 hp (492 PS / 362 kW) and 434 lb-ft (588 Nm) of torque.

Bentley Motors has unveiled two special-edition Continental models for the Middle East – the Continental Flying Spur Arabia and the Continental Flying Spur Speed Arabia. Besides retaining all the performance of the company’s Continental Flying Spur and Spur Speed, the limited 50 units of the two new models comes with some additional exterior and interior features.

The Continental Flying Spur Arabia which is designed with an elegant 14-spoke diamond alloy wheel has Bentley’s highly acclaimed W12, 6-litre engine and is capable of achieving a top speed of 312 km/h and sprints to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds. Its twin turbo engine comes with 552 bhp (412kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque. The Continental Flying Spur Speed Arabia is equipped with bright silver, 10-spoke, 20-inch wheels which are also compatible with optional carbon ceramic brakes. Its W12 engine offers 600 bhp (610 ps, 449 kW) with 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque. It will drive from 0-100 km/h in 4.8 seconds with a top speed of 322 km/h.
To add to comfort, it includes ventilated seats that can cool or warm passengers. Both cars are further distinguished by an exterior front fender badge, tread plate and ashtray lid badge – all bearing the Arabia signature.

Lamborghini’s senior executive Stephan Winkelmann has hinted at the company’s plans of adding another model to the Lamborghini line-up. Going by what he has said, a third model in the line up would fit Lamborghini very well. Though not many details have been revealed, it is expected that the new vehicle would be a four-door car.

We are yet to confirm whether the upcoming car would be the much anticipated Estoque. If you would remember, we had earlier been told that the company had plans to launch the Estoque in 2011, but was forced to halt the decision due to the global economic recession.

If plans to launch the Estoque reach the final stage, it would most likely feature a 5.2-liter V10 engine with approximately 550 PS (405 kW / 542 hp) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque and it would compete with potential rivals like Aston Martin Rapide, Porsche Panamera Turbo, and next-generation Maserati Quattroporte.  We have for you a series of pictures of the car in concept stage.
