Fast Lane: New highly configurable Bentley, Lamborghini updates GT3 race car
Lamborghini presents the new Huracan GT3 EVO2, a racing car based on the Huracan STO, with which it shares important design elements, rear-wheel drive only and a naturally aspirated V10 engine.
Compared to the Huracan GT3 EVO, which was homologated in 2019 and based on the Huracan EVO road car, the GT3 EVO2 is fully compliant with the new 2022 Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile technical regulations and offers completely new aerodynamic solutions and an admissions system.
The car will be delivered to customers from the second half of 2022 and the previous model Huracan GT3 EVO can be upgraded to GT3 EVO2 specifications with an evolution kit. Its track debut is scheduled for the 2023 24 Hours of Daytona.
Self-driving cars operate in heavy snow
Finnish self-driving technology company Sensible 4 has successfully completed a self-driving pilot project in Tampere, Finland, in the midst of the worst winter in years.
The 2.5-month pilot project, which started in January, involved two self-driving Toyota Proace vehicles driving along a mainline tram line in suburban Tampere. The vehicles were driven in temperatures well below minus 20 degrees Celsius on slippery roads with snowy lane markings and with high piles of snow along the route.
They covered 5,569 km, carried 1,663 passengers and traveled at a maximum speed of 30 km/h.
