MotoGP 19 Historical Challenges

Milestone recently released a trailer for MotoGP 19. That trailer is focused on Historical challenges, meaning that we will get some riders who wrote history.

It mentions 50 historical drivers with 35 bikes and 3 historical tracks. Those tracks will be Laguna Seca 2013, Donington 2009 and Catalunya 2015. From the trailer, that does not seems to go further than the year 2000’s, which is a bit sad.
However, the game will get a lot of different categories: Red Bull MotoGP™ Rookies Cup, Moto3™, Moto2™, and MotoGP™ and the brand-new MotoE™. And some tools to personalize your rider.

The creator also promise a better AI based on machine learning: “thanks to the Neural AI and to the Machine Learning, you’ll now face smarter, faster opponents who will exploit your mistakes. The challenge is about to get real.”

MotoGP 19 will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on June 6  and on Nintendo Switch (oh yes!) on June 27. Which is not that far, thank you Milestone for that!

 

 

Pininfarina Battista electric hypercar ready for production

Automobili Pininfarina just announced that their monster Battista (electric car with 1900bhp) will be produced and available in 2020.
The car has 4 electric motors and can do the 0-60 miles/h in under 2 seconds, while still getting up to 300 miles of autonomy with a single charge.

However, only 150 models will be made with a price tag at $2.25 million… and half of them are already sold.

Automobili Pininfarina also announced the release of SUV which will be shown later this year and probably available in 2020 too.

Porsche just announced the Porsche 911 Speedster, last of the 991 generation and limited at 1948 cars!

The car was on display this week at the New York motor show. It will get the same flat-6, 4 litters engine than the GT3, get 495bhp and 346lb ft of torque. With the manual 6 gears box, this will give a max speed of 192mph (309km/h) and a  0-60mph in 3.8 seconds.
For weight saving, the air conditioning is optional,  no sat nav,  while the ceramic breaks are standard and the roof will have manual operation.  This car is made for driving.

In terms of price, the Porsche 911 Speedster will be available in May in the US from $275,750 and not announced yet in the UK and Europe.

Well … good things come with a price.
