In this week's Weekly Racing Video Game News round-up, Polyphony go all Grand Designs on us with the debut of the BMW Vision GT for Gran Turismo 6, the latest dream machine in their coveted concept car catalogue. It may have been influenced by BMW's tired touring cars of the '70s, but there's no denying it coincidentally looks like a racing variant of their new M2.

But wait, there's more: remember that special Senna content announced several moons ago? Well, it's racing off the line later this month. Time to dust off GT6, then. 

Over on the next-gen consoles, DriveClub steered into controversy once again with the revelation that micro-transactions will be featured, before swooning us with its promise of innovative socially-connected racing in a series of informative videos.

Elsewhere, new purdy next-gen MotoGP '14 screenshots rode in, finally revealing that most essential ingredient for a bike racing game: the bikes. Cue chlidish imitation of bike noises. 

We also had two new pricey peripherals from Fanatec joining the ClubSport Wheel rim family: the stock car-inspired Oval Rim and GT-esque Round 1 Rim.

All this and more can be found in the Weekly Racing Video Game News round-up embedded below. Links to all articles discussed in the article can also be found below.
