Images and statistics of the AMG GT R have been released onto the internet and it is quite the striking vehicle. Looking at the GT R it’s clear to see an intentional leap away from traditional Mercedes design style, making this one of their most mean and menacing vehicles they ever let loose into the market.

But don’t mistake the GT R for just being a a great looking car; it’s got a twin-turbo V-8 that is an improved version of the earlier AMG models.

Under that mile-long hood, the GT R sports a twin-turbo V-8 based on the one in lesser AMG GTs, but with a revised intake, new forged aluminum pistons, and a higher compression ratio. The ­output dial gets turned up, from 503 horses to 577, and from 479 pound-feet of torque to 516. A lighter dual-mass flywheel is said to engender quicker responses and powertrain feel akin to that of a naturally aspirated engine.

With a 1,200 mile range between gas stops, it looks like a new hybrid semi manufacturer, Nikola Motor Company, is carving a name for itself in the energy-efficient vehicles market with some very impressive engineering behind it.The company is named after the same inventor that the car manufacturer Tesla was named for (Nikola Tesla) and should have a lot of interesting engine and electrical parts.

 

Tesla is getting into trucking. At least his first name is.

The Nikola Motor Company, a Utah-based startup, has unveiled a compressed natural gas-electric hybrid semi aimed at disrupting the long-haul trucking industry the way the Tesla Model S did the car business.

The company is run by Trevor Milton, a former executive at dHybrid Systems, which developed a CNG system for tractor-trailers that’s now owned by Worthington Industries. Along with Faraday Future, Nikola is the latest automotive outfit named after an electrical pioneer to seemingly appear from the ether.
