AutoComplete: Rolls-Royce debuts its EVTOL flying car concept
Here's what's making news on Road Show.
Rolls Royce PLC think airplane engines, not ghosts and phantoms, pulled the digital sheets off of it's EVTOL flying car concept.
That stands for electric vertical take off and landing.
But it's not the coolest part of the concept.
That honor goes to the propulsion system, which uses electric motors to power the propellers, the power of which comes from a more traditional gas turbine engine.
This means that it runs on regular old jet fuel, and can work within existing infrastructures.
The new Macan is doing some high-altitude testing in the tiny, land-locked nation of Wakanda, sorry, Lesotho.
And while Porsche engineers are keeping the visual changes under camouflage, the car seems like it will be more of a major refresh than a total reboot.
We were expecting more power and torque to further cement its reputation as the hot rod in the luxury crossover segment.
Not content to just smash the Pikes Peak Hill Plan record, Volkswagen brought its IDR electric racer to the Goodwood Festival of Sped.
Where it blitzed Lord March's driveway more than three seconds faster than the previous record holder.
With a time of just 43.86 seconds.
Mind you, this is still practically a geological age off of the regular record holder, a 1999 McLaren MP4-13 Formula One car which made the trip in 41.6 seconds.
Still, nonetheless, it's an impressive feat for VW and driver Romain Dumas.
