AMG's F1-based Project One rewrites the hypercar rulebook

AMG has finally shown the mechanical layout of its thousand-horsepower, Formula 1-inspired Project One hypercar at a sneak reveal at the Nürburgring 24 Hour race. AMG Chairman Tobias Moers insists the car will become the new hypercar benchmark, with an F1-based 1.6-liter, electrified, turbocharged V6 and four electric motors. The all-wheel drive hypercar won't just deliver levels of performance unparalleled outside the world's racetracks, but will be able to run as a pure battery-electric…

Can Fernando Alonso win Indy? Here's why and why maybe not

SPEEDWAY, IN – The month of May has been a joy ride for Fernando Alonso at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The two-time Formula 1 champion came to Indy having never turned left in a race car without also turning right. But he acquired such a feel for Indy's 2½-mile rectangle during a month of practice and qualifying that he's considered a strong contender to win the 101st Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, rookie or not.

BMW shows Motorrad Concept Link zero-emissions bike

At the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este 2017 in Italy, BMW made a big splash yesterday with its sleek 8 Series concept. But not all the elegance was on four wheels. BMW also introduced the Motorrad Concept Link, a zero-emissions electric bike. The Link is inspired by another concept, the even-more-futuristic-looking Motorrad Vision Next 100 that BMW showed last fall at the LA Auto Show. This connected motorcycle - it's probably more accurate to call it a scooter - is designed to get you around…
