After DB11, Aston Martin immediately open the latest Vantage sheath

Aston Martin Vantage actually can be regarded as one of the handsome looking supercar with modern standards. However, it does not seem to be the latest Aston Martin Vantage model that has been present since 2005 ago, so the British car manufacturer feels it is mandatory to replace it.
Two new pictures of the Aston Martin Vantage have been released showing its front and rear light designs. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2AjrTud)
The sign of Aston Martin to launch the latest generation of Vantage wafted because the British manufacturer was found to have shown a car teaser that is believed to be a Vantage. More interesting, because Aston Martin will also introduce the racing variant of these new car, nicknamed Vantage GTE.
The car has been caught testing on the Continent. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2AjrTud)
And for the engine behind its front hood is almost certainly the same as that of its predecessor Aston Martin DB11, which is a unit of twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter belongs to Mercedes-AMG, and a twin-turbo V12 5.2 liter option.

As in the DB11, Aston Martin Vantage will get a similar design, but minus the Curlicue ventilation, as well as the  Aston Martin's typical grille is located further down, with the headlamps are more flattened. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOCAR]

When the Aventador successor candidate starts to peek

Has been emblazoned since along time as the world's greatest supercar icon, and various works from Lamborghini manufacturer were always make the excitement among the world's automotive lovers, especially those who are crazy about high-performance cars.

Since 2015 ago, when Lamborghini first introduced a sexy supercar variant which the more 'hot and extreme' called Lamborghini Aventador. And not half-hearted to this day Lamborghini factory in Sant'Agatha, Italy has spawned at least 7,000 units of these supercars.

Although the age of the Aventador is estimated to be long, apparently these Italian raging bull manufacturer is already preparing to show the successor. Yes, Lamborghini is now preparing to launch a supercar study concept on November 6, 2017, with a design language that will later be used on Aventador's successor.

There is still no more detailed data from this concept car revealed by Lamborghini, in addition to having a look with a keen eye that is characteristic of Lamborghini, but seems more humane than Aventador. And as qouted from Carscoops on November 4, 2107, at this point but Lamborghini teamed up with MIT to "write an important page in the future of super sports cars for the third millennium." The partnership is primarily focused on creating new materials for the automotive sector and had the goal of developing a "super sports car ready for the challenges of the third millennium."

The automaker recently said the Aventador’s replacement will retain the naturally aspirated V12 engine and won’t be a plug-in hybrid, so it doesn’t seem as though the concept’s powertrain will inspire the flagship Lambo. The Huracan replacement, meanwhile, is expected to marry a V10 engine with a battery electric powertrain for greater efficiency.

The car is currently being overseen by Mitja Borkner who is the head of Lamborghini design and has previously worked on a handful Porsche models including the Mission E and Panamera Sport Turismo. The concept car is still not known its name was mentioned will be the face of these Italian supercar manufacturer in the future. Okay, we'll wait from now on! *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOGUIDE | CARSCOOPS]

In the vicinity of the driver's and passenger's seats there is an agent feature and an adjustable touch screen. The function of the feature is to adjust the flexible suitability of the driver's and passenger's posture and also function in accessing the driving information. On the other hand, there is also an infotainment screen located inside the cabin to completes the car luxury.
It seems that Toyota is deliberately preparing an artificial intelligence system called AI Agent, which is intended to assist drivers in driving safely and comfortably. Indeed what for that the Toyota Fine-Comfort Ride concept is made and also suitable to be used as a family car. Finally from here we can also look the Toyota's seriousness to participate in realizing the future vehicle mobility. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOEXPRESS]

Nissan presents a GT-R that can be driven through a joystick

Nissan brings together the excitement of playing virtual games with reality through the Nissan GT-R/C, this is a dream car of the gamers that can be controlled completely through the DualShock®4 joystick. This is part of the celebration of the launch of the Gran Turismo Sport game in Europe on October 18, 2017 and commemorates 20 years of Nissan's involvement in the Gran Turismo game series.

These GT-R car can be controlled simply by using a DualShock®4 joystick. The vehicles with remote control is able to reach speeds up to 196 mph without anyone sitting behind the wheel. The speed of GT-R/C was tested by NISMO driver Jann Mardenborough at Silverstone. Jann controls the GT-R/C of the Robinson R44 Raven II helicopter cockpit, which already has a special permit to fly in low altitude.

Mardenborough is one of the most successful Nissan GT Academy winners, a revolutionary program from Nissan that seeks out and develops the gamers into real racing driver. Jann is the first racer to drive a GT-R/C because of his unrivaled talent at Gran Turismo and the real race.

"It's a great car and the first experience of a lifetime. The GT-R/C has merged my two worlds (virtual gaming and real racing world) in an unexpected way. The reaction of the car when controlled remotely is more interesting than I imagined. The designs by JLB are extraordinary in making everything react very well," says Jann Mardenborough.

"I'm happy to say all these challenges are passable, but this is also inseparable from Jann's unique capabilities that can control the vehicle in a very short time and produce a truly impressive lap times," he added.

Nissan has dedicated its best creativity and innovation to the racing world for over 80 years by combining technology and performance for competitive advantage. Since 2008, Nissan has also made the racing world more accessible to the public through the Nissan GT Academy, which can transform the game enthusiasts into professional drivers.

The GT-R/C was modified in the UK by JLB Design Ltd., by using the R35 V62011-specific engine that can be spewed the power up to 542 bhp of the same year when Jann Mardenborough won the Nissan GT Academy.

In the fastest lap recorded by Mardenborough (1:17:47), the average speed of the GT-R/C reaches 76 mph (122 kph) and the top speed at 131 mph (211 kph). Meanwhile, the average speed on the circuit with the lenghth of 1.6 mile/2.6 km is around 83 mph/134 kph.

The GT-R/C is equipped with four robots that control the car's steering, transmission, brake and gas lever. Meanwhile, there are six computers are installed to update the control up to 100 times per second. The steering position is also measured to 1/65,000 positions.

The DualShock®4 controls unmodified with a microcomputer that translates signals from buttons and joysticks to forward to the GT-R/C on-board system. This wireless operation has a main control range of up to one kilometer.

To help Mardenborough assess the speed of the vehicle in the corner, there's the Racelogic VBOX Motorsport sensor is installed to transmit speed data to the LCD screen in the helicopter cockpit.

The GT-R/C is also equipped with two independent safety systems that operate on different radio frequencies. This allows for two additional operators to brake the full ABS and shut down the engine if the primary operator loses its control.

"The GT-R/C has presented unique challenges and a number of our first engineering experiences. We must ensure effective robotic operation during acceleration/deceleration, as well as the power in sharp turns; provide real control and secure the car at all speeds; maintaining a strong relationship between the car and DualShock®4 with varying distances and with minimal conditions at the time of the robot in action," said James Brighton of the JLB Design Ltd.
In 2018, Nissan GT-R/C will be taken on the tour to primary and secondary schools in the UK to promote future careers in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | EVO]
