In 2016, as the anniversary of the brand's centenary, BMW is expected to delight its fans with a very special gift - the first real supercar to be called the M9. Whether this will actually happen or not remains to be seen, though we don’t hope too much. Romanian designer Razvan Radion has followed a vision of what the M9 is supposed to represent - a true high-performance car that could compete with Porsches, Ferraris and Lamborghinis.
On Sunday, Formula One teams will drive the first kilometers in Jerez with new race cars. Well, almost everything, for example, the team of current world champions, Mercedes, has already tested its challenger on the track in Silverstone. Nico Rosberg was already sitting in the car during the filming of the promotional material.
According to Williams, they have also shown their car for this year’s season, called VJM08, at Force India. It will be driven by Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez, who also showed off their newly painted helmets alongside the new car.
Today, for the first time in his career, Sebastian Vettel drove a (more modern) Ferrari Formula One car. The four-time world champion passed the first test for a new employer in a 2012 season Fiorano car after his contract with the Red Bull team expired yesterday. Due to the valid contract, Vettel was not allowed to perform at the last test in Abu Dhabi, although he only slightly violated this by visiting Ferrari's garage. The rules allow teams to do this kind of testing with two-year-old race cars, and although Ferrari can't help itself with the extra miles, they only helped Vettle make a custom-made seat and get used to the new environment. Vettel had the number five on his helmet and race car, his chosen start number with which he will race next season, on it
The Formula One caravan will test a new system in Abu Dhabi called the Info Wing (roughly translated, data wings). It is an LED screen mounted on the car above the racer's head, which will show where the racer is driving. This will make it easier for spectators in the stands to watch the races, and from the stands it will also be possible to see on which tires the racer will drive and who set the fastest lap. The system will receive data directly from the race management and was invented by Anthony Hamilton, the father and former manager of Lewis Hamilton. The FIA will initially test the system on Thursday or Friday on its safety car, and later, on Tuesday, when the two-day test will take place, on the Force Indie race cars. "It is a system that will inform viewers about the racer 's place, as well as some other information
Today, as part of a promotional filming day, McLaren put a Honda-powered race car on the track in Silverston for the first time. The McLaren MP4-29H, an updated chassis this year, has made sure Honda has gathered a lot of data on its powertrain, meaning work on the race car for the 2015 season, the MP4-30, will be able to flow forward. The FIA allows so-called filming days, where teams can drive up to 100 kilometers on special tires.
This year's SEMA, in addition to the usual extremisms and crazy alterations, also put the Hoonicorna RTR on display. It is a redesigned Ford Mustang in 1965 with all-wheel drive, which hides 845 horsepower under the hood, and its owner is none other than Ken Block. Hoonicorn will perform at Block’s Gymkhana 7. “I’m happy to be able to present this car to the public at SEMA, at Ford’s showroom,” Block said. "I worked on this project for two years and the feeling was amazing when I was finally able to drive it on the set of Gymkhana 7. I knew Vaughn Gittin along with his RTR team was the right choice as they live for the Mustangs. But on this car they are it really turned out. It's the best car I've ever driven in Gymkhana, "the American added. Inspiration for the outdoor floor
When Audi launched the first TT in 1998, it represented a minor design revolution. The second generation has become a kind of icon with a touch of racing spirit due to the generous use of light aluminum. With the third generation Audi TT, this is considered a modern classic vehicle, with top performance. Therefore, it is not surprising that the latest incarnation of TT was chosen for the new cup competition, which will take place as part of the races of the German DTM championship, the Audi TT Cup. The German company Quattro Gmbh will produce 24 Audi Sport TT Cup drills for the cup competition, 18 of which will be occupied by the best candidates of all who are willing to pay around 100.000 euros to enter a multi-level elimination process called "Challengers Welcome". The remaining six race cars will be i
Sebastian Vettel has replaced a former Ferrari racer, Gerhard Berger, at the Red Bull Ring in Austria, where the next Formula One World Championship race will take place. Berger lent Vettl his Ferrari F1-87 / 88C with which he raced in 1988 and won the Italian Grand Prix. Berger, who last raced in Formula One in 1997, was able to test Vettl’s 2012 Red Bull Renault race car, from the 2012 season, with which Sebastian won the championship. “The car is so clean, so direct,” Vettel said of driving a 16-year-old Ferrari with a 1.5-liter turbo engine. "Due to the lower vacuum, the speeds in corners are lower than in modern racing cars, but it doesn't say anything, as it has a lot of power at its disposal. Driving is a lot of fun. Great!"
Force Indie racer Nico Hulkenberg was the fastest on the first day of winter testing in Bahrain. The current world champions, Red Bull Racing, are still in trouble, as their race car failed again after only 14 laps. Mercedes teams continued to show exceptional form, with team cars from German-made engines running reliably. With a lap time of 1: 36.880, Nico Hulkenberg was one second faster than the others, noting that he set the time with a softer version of the tires. They had a few more problems at Williams, where Felipe Massa drove only five laps with FW36. At Red Bull, testing began just a quarter before 14 p.m., local time. Sebastian Vettel set the fifth time of the day, but he only managed XNUMX laps with the car. Still
