Ferrari scares fans 4-cylinder engine. But it’s not so scary!

“Is downsizing has come to the Scuderia?!” — cried the fans of the brand Ferrari saw the news about patented naduvnoj the Quartet. Unfortunately or fortunately, but we still don’t know what the Italian engineers had patented the unusual unit — maybe it will be a “heart” for reincarnated Dino may prescribe under the hood, a new Maserati or Alfa Romeo, maybe this is an engineering exercise without any industrial prospects. But the idea is interesting.

Mounted in the exhaust manifold, the impeller spins the generator and that generates electricity and stores it in the battery. The energy is then used for traction motor and to drive the second impeller (compressor) installed in the intake manifold. The lack of a rigid connection between the two impellers allows you to smoothly adjust the exhaust back pressure and thus get rid of the effect plugged the pharynx, common to all turbo engines, that is the Ferrari engine will sing! The electrical component of the system completely eliminates turbojam, so you can expect a strong acceleration throughout the Rev range.

Extra bonus — excellent environmental performance and economy. But only 4 cylinder… budget For the previous conditional models Dino Ferrari did a 2.0-liter engine, but those were at least 6 cylinders, but the “Quartet” on the serial Ferrari had never used. However, it may not be.

Bentley adds to its production of solar panels

Bentley will equip its plant Crewe the UK’s largest installation of solar panels.

It is expected that the area of 10 thousand solar cells will meet a quarter of the Bentley’s electricity.

To complete its equipment is planned in six months. That brings the total number of solar panels will be thirty thousand. This will be enough, for example, to provide light for nearly 1,800 houses.

Bentley noted that the company’s philosophy on the use of alternative sources of energy is passed on the cars. In the near future, the model line will appear as electric cars and hybrid specimens.

So, at the moment is working on an electric vehicle powered by the Porsche Mission E. it is Expected that on execution it will be a four-door coupe.

There are rumors also about that all-electric may be renewed Continental. However, the appearance of this car should be expected before 2020.
