1,183 HP Audi RS3 EV Previews the Future of Performance


By: Sam McEachern
German automotive supplier Schaeffler has converted an Audi RS3 TCR into a ridiculously powerful EV capable of accelerating from 0-124 mph in under seven seconds.
The creation, called the Schaeffler 4ePerformance, features four 295 hp Formula E motors that make a combined output of 1,182 hp. Each wheel receives its own dedicated motor, however each axle has its own a gearbox housing, giving the vehicle two electric twin axles. This allows for torque vectoring all-wheel drive, enabling the software to send the ideal amount of torque to each wheel at exactly the right time. It features two lithium-ion batteries with a combined capacity of 64 kWh.

“For Schaeffler, this vehicle is a test laboratory on wheels thanks to its free scaling options for the drive power. We are currently testing and developing our own driving dynamics controlsystem, which is based on physical vehicle and wheel modeling,”said motorsports director at Schaeffler, Simon Opel. “We have been learning a lot especially in the area of software-based driving dynamics control systems.”
Schaeffler claims the 4ePerformance will accelerate from 0-124 mph (200 km/h) in under seven seconds. It didn’t provide an estimate for its 0-60 mph time, but something in the two-second range is not out of the question. More important than its acceleration is its on-track ability, and thanks to the torque vectoring system, the 4ePerformance should prove to be quite handy around a circuitonce all the development and tuning work is complete.
You can watch ABT Schaeffler Formula E driver Licas di Grassi sample the 4ePeformance in the video embedded.

How VW Made the I.D. R Lightweight


By: Sebastien Bell
You’ve heard by now that VW is going after the electric record at Pikes Peak, but what you might not know is that it will be chasing that record with considerably less horsepower than the car that set the record.
The eO PP100, which set the electric record back in 2016 was making something like 1,600 hp. The I.D. R only makes about 670 hp. 
There are a couple of other areas where it improves over the record holder, though. The VW team went to extreme lengths to cut weight, making the body out of a carbon fiber-kevlar composite and running through countless simulations to ensure that construction was as lightweight as possible.
“Before we actually assembled the I.D. R Pikes Peak, we used computers to analyze a multitude of different configurations,” says Willy Rampf, technical adviser to the project. Every part went through the simulator to make that it was as light as possible, while still being strong enough to contend with the forces exerted through the run.
Even the seatbelts and cushions were made as light as possible, as were Romain Dumas’ racing overalls. In fact, the thread used to attach a Pikes Peak-mandated patch weighs as much as the whole rest of the suit.
After all that, the car only weighs 1,100 kg with the driver in it (about 2,400 lbs), but given the time constraints and a safety system made out of steel and aluminum–rather than the lighter weight titanium that many conventional race cars use–the car only weighs 100 kg (220 lbs) less than the eO PP100 (sans driver).
But racing is about more than just power to weight ratios. Volkswagen’s figures its comparatively low hp figure is its advantage. In electric more power not only means more weight, it means bigger batteries.
By only giving the car 670 hp and requiring it to recover 20% of its energy over the course of the race, it has a relatively compact battery pack that can all be placed alongside and behind the driver (Romain Dumas) meaning that the car will have perfect weight distribution.
Along with the Porsche-aided aero equipment and the expertise of Dumas, who has raced and won at Pikes Peak before, VW is hoping to make it to the top in less than 8:57. Still, with the horsepower deficit, it won’t be an easy feat.

You Can Get a Lamborghini-Themed Sofa for Your Living Room


By: Jason Siu
If you’re a die-hard Lamborghini enthusiast that doesn’t know what to do with your money, here are some Lamborghini-themed sofas.
They come from Design Epicentrum, who recently shared photos of the new sofa design sitting in a two-story hangar in Ontario, Canada. The pair of Lamborghini sofas look right at home among the 50 or so luxury cars in the collection stored at the hangar. The company had a previous design that used the same Lamborghini front end, but the sofa itself didn’t resemble cars seats. A total of 44 units are being produced, so they’re also a collectible, if you’re into that sort of thing.
The company says the standard color of the sofa is deep black, but it can change it to any color for an additional charge. In addition, the customer can personalize the color of the wheels and brake calipers, as well as the Lamborghini front end.
Design Epicentrum also has Lamborghini-themed desks to go along with your brand new sofa.

There are Already 100 Bugatti Chirons in the World


By: Jason Siu
The 100th Bugatti Chiron has rolled off the assembly line and is heading to a customer in the Middle East.
The milestone supercar is a great display of just how personalized a Chiron can get straight from the factory. The exterior body consists entirely of dark blue carbon fiber, topped with a matte finish for the very first time. The iconic Bugatti side line has been painted a contrasting Italian red, while the wheels in mink black are a menacing touch.
Inside the cabin, the contrasting red scheme continues with a full leather interior dominated by the shade. The French automaker said the 100th Bugatti Chiron cost about €2.85 million ($3.34 million USD).
Bugatti said production of the Chiron is running at full speed, with the company producing about 70 units per year. The Bugatti Chiron will be limited to 500 units, so expect a few more years of production.
“I find the 100th Chiron especially pleasing. It is dynamic and elegant in equal measure,” said Stephan Winkelmann, president of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. “This car shows that Bugattiproduces highly individualized masterpieces of automobile craftsmanship that are simply unparalleled.
