Also designed thanks to the racing experience linked to the supply of engines for the Motorcycle Championship, it offers a simply thrilling riding experience. It is also more responsive and responsive, spins 650 rpm higher than the 1,050 unit, and delivers a sporty and exciting intake and exhaust tone.

Audi e-tron GT Exterior Design in Kemora gray
Following the Audi prologue design study, which offered a preview of the design language of the subsequent full-size class models as a show car in 2014, the e-tron GT constitutes the next evolutionary stage of the Audi design language. As a gran turismo, it fascinates with its sculptural design. What applies for the current full-size class models applies here, too: Proportions are the foundation of good design. In other words: a long wheelbase, wide track, large wheels, and a flat silhouette. The e-tron GT has precisely these ideal proportions. Its design language is the starting point for the design of future electric models from Audi – they will have a significantly more flowing exterior design than today’s models. As is always the case at Audi, the design is not an end in itself but rather the connection between form and function: In line with electric mobility, the design of the e-tron GT,enables sophisticated aerodynamics – aesthetics thus also arise from efficiency. The e-tron GT deliberately adopts established design elements of the e-tron, the first electric car from Audi, and refines them in a targeted manner. These elements include the strongly modeled insert above the door sill trims. It emphasizes the battery pack in the center of the vehicle as the car’s powerhouse.
Behind the wheel of the Jaguar XF, Mitch Evans is pursued across the British capital by renowned Parkour athlete Lynn Jung
To mark the eagerly anticipated release of No Time To Die, Jaguar’s latest XF Saloon found itself involved in a thrilling chase across London, as Jaguar Racing’s Formula E driver Mitch Evans aimed to be amongst the very first to see the film. The action is set against some of the capital’s most iconic landmarks including the Shard, Tower Bridge, City Hall and Millennium Bridge. Mitch, who is at the wheel of the Santorini Black XF R-Dynamic HSE, is unaware he is being pursued by free runner and Parkour athlete Lynn Jung. The reason for their chase? He has unwittingly dropped his tickets to the screening and Lynn is determined to ensure his wait to see No Time To Die is over. The six-mile chase starts in Laffone Street, close to Tower Bridge, and weaves its way across the city with Lynn running, jumping and somersaulting in pursuit of Mitch, who is enjoying the XF’s luxury, comfort and serenity thanks to its Active Noise Cancellation and Cabin Air Ionisation technology. Distanced from the noise and chaos of the city around him, Mitch focuses on the drive, making the most of the XF’s precise, intuitive steering – and the responsive, refined performance of its 300PS Ingenium engine. The action concludes in London’s famous Baker Street, where the tickets are returned in spectacular style, allowing Mitch to finally enjoy No Time to Die.
Few tracks in the world present the technical and handling difficulties of the all-encompassing Spa-Francorchamps. The 7004-metre Belgian circuit is fittingly nicknamed “the Driving Academy” and, as Mauro Barbieri, Performance and Simulations Coordinator of Ferrari Competizioni GT explains, requires a high level of compromise if one wants to be competitive.
