Our favourite two F1 boys, Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo, got their new car revealed today and it will be called the Aston Martin-Red Bull Racing-TAG Heuer RB14. Where the previous car, the RB13, was basically the F1 version of a Red Bull soda can, the new one will go for dark blue, and that’s awesome. But, don’t get attached too much, these colours are temporary, the real colours will be revealed next week.
They are going to call it the Cullinan, which is a reference to a 3106-carat jewel unearthed in South Africa in 1905, that’s said to be the largest flawless diamond ever found. It will be packed with a majestic 6.75 Liter V12 with 2 turbochargers, borrowed from the new Phantom.
But to companies, there is one more big advantage, and that’s big data. An example; Nike has track sensors in their shoes so the users can view their running results in an app, see their progress and upload it to Facebook should they want it. But that’s not the reason Nike is interested in that tracking device. Nike sees where its users start and finish their runs. And that information is analyzed and sold to, for instance, Starbucks, who will build a shop at the perfect spot where runners finish their run.
In preparation for the start on 9 February of the 2018 Winter Olympics, ESA took it’s Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission over the host city Pyeongchang, South Korea. About 180 km South-East of Seoul, Pyeongchang is nestled in the Taebaek Mountains. Taken on 30 January, the images shown in the animation show the sites of several events, as well as the Olympic Stadium itself.
In the US, a 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT® Hellcat with a Supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8 Engine with 707 bhp. Costs approximately $70.000 (€55.000). In comparison, that same car is on the Dutch occasion market on sale for a whopping €119.000 (!). If Trump gets his way, this number will go way down, and we might just be seeing Hellcats on our European roads.
The Urus has a 4.0 litre V8 twin-turbo engine and rocks 650 brake horsepower with 850 Nm of torque. So yeah, the thing is fast. So fast, that it will go from 0-100 km/h in 3,6 seconds and will not stop until it reaches 305 km/h. That’s faster than a Cayenne Turbo, but it must be said, the Cayenne can hold four adults, easily.
