  1. Sara' ricordato solo per abu Dhabi... Certo che williams con un DeVries / albon avrebbe una signora line up. comunque mercato veramente strano e imprevedibile.
  2. Ormai con la conferma di Tsunoda è chiaro che la galassia RB vuole rimanere attaccata a Honda nel breve ma pure nel lungo termine mi sà. Comunque non capisco una cosa: Albon pilota RB, perchè non lo riporterebbero a Faenza al posto di Gasly, se Pierre và in Alpine? De Vries, Mercedes dice nulla a farselo portare via cosi da Alpine? CHe presumo gli possa offrire un pluriennale? Appunto lo potrebbero facilmente posteggiarlo in WIlliams... sopratutto se ALbon se ne andasse. A che pro un team dovrebbe scegliere Giovinazzi? E lui che è legato a Ferrari perchè andare in ALpine contro il francese.... OCON , quando potrebbe puntare Le Mans con la rossa? E fare 3° pilota Ferrari/Haas?
  3. troppo poco caratterizzate rispetto una volgare amg line queste pepate vanno bmabate. Meccanicamente è una c43 con aggiunto il modulo plug in delle altre C plug in....
  4. vero ma è da dire che tutta l'attrezzatura è credo replicata in 5 set per le trasferte extra europee che viaggiano via nave. Sono solo le macchine e i motori e i ricambi a volare, ma sono un peso minimo rispetto al totale. Vero che devi muovere almeno 50/60 persone quello si. Ma mi dicevano che i tripli back to back extra europei sono comunque carissimi, dato che devi tenere il personale almeno 1 mese a spese dei team nel continente, non economico ma sicuramente più eco FRIENDLIIIIIII.
  5. Con la morte della regina, vedremo se i team britannici e i piloti sceglieranno di correre o meno. Oppure sceglieranno livree particolari e altri tipi di omaggi.
  6. fortuna che doveva essere un anno tranquillo per i sedili....... Comunque attenzione che nel WEC con tutti i team ufficiali serviranno tanti factory driver di grido (un prototipo non è un gt3..).
  7. Un paio di precisazioni, queste nankang non sono semislick, sono come le neova gomme molto molto sportive, a mescola generalmente tenera. Ma le vere semislick omologate sono le varie toyo 888, yoko a052,a48 , nankang ar1 , kumho v70 ; queste hanno differenze molto più marcate e su auto non adeguate porterebbero a grossi problemi di assetto e affidabilità. Ps ma i freni spero tu li abbia rifatti completamente con tubi in treccia, sennò come fai a girare in pista??
  8. “Ready to Race” isn’t simply a slogan at KTM, it’s the very DNA of the Austrian manufacturer. It defines the approach to new projects and the motivation behind them. It’s the vision for developing, testing and producing cars to win races around the world. Where second place is no option. All of these qualities apply just as much to the latest KTM Sportcar GmbH project, the KTM X-BOW GT-XR. We caught up with Hubert Trunkenpolz, Managing Director of KTM Sportcar GmbH and KTM AG Executive Board member, to find out more. KTM launched its first four-wheeled vehicle, the X-BOW, in 2008. The X-BOW quickly became one of the leading lightweight sportscars on the market. At the time KTM was mostly known as a motorcycle manufacturer, so this marked a major milestone for the whole company. What were the biggest challenges with the X-BOW back then? Right from day one we wanted to produce a car that reflected KTM values such as uncompromising lightweight construction, pure performance and outstanding design. We had to find a number of special technical solutions, such as the extraordinary carbon monocoque. We also had to build an entirely new production facility. Those were major challenges, but we were certainly up to the task. Ultimately we established a new KTM manufacturing facility in Graz, with the most high-tech small-series production in Europe. When the idea became a reality and the first X-BOW emerged out of the plant, petrolheads from around the world were blown away. There’s no question that it was all worth it. A lot has happened since then and new X-BOW models and evolutions have been released. How happy are you with the development of the X-BOW range? I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that we are very proud to see how everything has developed. Since we began production, we have delivered more than 1,400 X-BOWs to people who want to enjoy pure driving pleasure. We have become one of the world’s most successful small-series sportscar manufacturer. In addition, with the X-BOW BATTLE, we have created one of the most successful amateur racing series in Europe, which has also helped us to continue developing the X-BOW. We have recorded countless victories in many categories of racing. The KTM X-BOW GTX and GT2 were the next major step for us. They laid the groundwork for our dream of building the most uncompromising super sportscar for the road. KTM has now announced a new X-BOW called the KTM X-BOW GT-XR. What does the XR stand for? XR stands for Extreme Racer. The X-BOW GT-XR is by far the most extreme road-going car ever produced by KTM. Our main focus was on overall performance. We wanted to design a car that is capable of setting fastest lap times at any time at a track day. Achieving this aim is all about combining low weight with high performance and sophisticated aerodynamics. That’s why every aspect of development centred on the power to weight ratio. How did motorsport help in the development process? Motorsport is the best test bench for pure performance and endurance. Any deficiency costs time and any error can mean retirement. Perfection is the only way to win, which is why motorsport came first for us, followed by the development of the road-going car. We crystallised the strengths of the car and were able to identify and eliminate any vulnerabilities. What can fans expect from the new car? We are currently conducting our endurance testing in which I have already been able to drive some kilometres. I don’t want to say too much, but fans will be seeing something extraordinary and extreme. The impressive agility combined with raw power and a throaty engine sound give me goosebumps! That’s exactly the feeling we want to create with all our products. There are also a number of technical solutions that we have developed to get the racing car on the road. Racing fans will definitely recognise quite a bit of motorsport technology. We have also made sure that the car is suitable as a daily driver, for instance that you can drive long distances without taking a break and can take some luggage with you. What we are creating here will surprise quite a few people. And then there’s the aggressive and spectacular design. This car is definitely an eyecatcher, and to us simply “a car like no other”. Who is the target group for the new X-BOW GT-XR? It’s definitely not a car for everyone. People who drive an X-BOW GT-XR are a different breed and have individual lifestyles. If you are sitting here in the cockpit then you love the thrill of driving and like to push the boundaries of what you can achieve. You definitely know what you want and don’t do things by halves. When will the new KTM X-BOW GT-XR be officially unveiled and where can you get one? We can’t wait to lift the lid on the new car and are doing everything in our power to unveil the GT-XR in September. We have some digital renderings of the new model for those who can’t wait until then. The computer graphics are a very good likeness of the finished article. The car is available for pre-order now. Those who would like to get their hands on one should contact their KTM X-BOW dealer, as only a very small number will be produced each year.
  9. vista a Misano, auto molto bella e molto più "presente" di 488. CHe dire , secondo me la scelta Oreca è pure commerciale, non stiamo parlando di 4 telai..... ma non credo di sbagliare di pensare ad un centinaio..... Inoltre alcune parti sono Oreca come progettazione, e anche come "concept" lo è. Sulle auto da corsa, l'assemblaggio deve essere fatto anche dai team, tant'è che spesso le consegnano assemblata, ma i team le disassemblano subito per poi ricostruirle , anche per far fare esperienza ai meccanici/tecnici.
  10. Era chiaro che con il programma Hypercar, Ferrari non riuscisse a gestire Gt3 , tant'è che mi pare di capire che questa 296 Gt3 sia progettata in maniera molto diversa dalle 458/488 di Michelotto. Peccato comunque, ma Michelotto ha una stuttura molto più piccola e meno enginering.
  11. io ho sfruttato una megapromozione audi e ho ordinato un etron a nlt. purtroppo è limitata dall'architettura ma almeno ora ha 22kHh in ac di caricabatterie a gestisce i 150kWH in dc. ma secondo me nessuno lo dice la cosa più importante sarebbe avere tutte le colonnine in plug and charge, quello si cambia la vita (audi lo offre solo per auto my22 onward) e rete ionity.
  12. questa vien bene , serve come la pioggia adesso una bella Bmw...
  13. Mi sembra lo stesso monitor centrale di nuova passat, 12" e qualcosa e leva al volante del cambio. Bah , schema come Mb ma sfalsato su due piani, con comandi del clima tutto touch. Ma che dire, il volante non mi piace come filone stilistico.
  14. Dal vivo (visto più volte i prototipi) mi pare che sia più piccola della vecchia granturismo, vi risulta?
