2022 BWT Alpine F1 Team Launch A522 - Interview with Matt Harman, Technical Director
The Lamborghini Sian Roadster - Stefano Domenicali
The Sián Roadster makes its debut in Blu Uranus (Blue), a special shade selected by the Lamborghini Centro Stile together with the Ad Personam department, which works with each Sián customer individually on the color and personalization options of their roadster. The Sián Roadster brings a feeling of freedom and a euphoric driving experience to life with its performance, capturing the blue of the sky and the green of the fields, while its wheels shine in Oro Electrum (gold), the tone chosen by Lamborghini for the electrification. The perfectly tuned interior is an elegant combination of white with details in Blu Glauco (Blue) and aluminum elements in Oro Electrum (Gold). The redesigned air inlets, which are 3D printed, can be personalized with the customer's initials.
With the Concept CE 02, BMW Motorrad is presenting a new interpretation of smart, urban single-track mobility one week before the IAA Mobility 2021. The electric vehicle concept, which is neither a classic motorcycle nor a scooter, is an exciting and highly emotional mobility offer. With its compact dimensions and youthful proportions, it also clearly appeals to a new target group: people aged 16 and over, who have not ridden a motorbike before but are open to new experiences, smart technology and, above all, combining mobility with fun. As a lightweight e-vehicle weighing about 120 kg, the BMW Motorrad Concept CE 02 is ideal for urban use, offering a high fun factor as well as straightforward yet stylish commuting. The 11 kW of output and all the torque available from standstill allow for fast acceleration at traffic lights. A top speed of 90 km/h and a range of 90 km make it easy to get from A to B – and back again – even in heavy city traffic.
The electric single-seater features a new powertrain developed in-house, which will run for the next two seasons. Jaguar Racing engineers have focussed on efficiency gains, reduced weight and lowered the centre of gravity of the I-TYPE 5’s powertrain. New suspension will provide greater adjustment from track to track and a more efficient invertor will improve switching speeds and performance. The state-of-the-art invertor also features 24 carat gold due to its highly conductive properties. Sam Bird and Mitch Evans – one of the strongest pairings on the Formula E grid – will drive the new race car. Evans has been with Jaguar Racing since they joined the all-electric championship in 2016. Bird, who has won races in every Formula E season, joins the British team this season.
