Goodyear unveils tyre concepts to get autonomous vehicles rolling

Tyre maker Goodyear has unveiled two futuristic concepts at this year's Geneva motor show, headlined by the Eagle-360, a radical new design intended for the driverless cars of tomorrow. Yes, if you were wondering, the ‘360’ in the concept’s name refers to the totally round shape of the tyre - a ballsy proposition, right? In a press release, Goodyear believes that the autonomous vehicle revolution will not only redefine the role of drivers, but also the role (and the roll) of tyres.

How does the Koenigsegg Regera drive without a gearbox? Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD) explained

If you're anything like me, you would have become weak at the knees when the Bugatti Chiron was unveiled at the 2016 Geneva motor show. That knee weakness then turned to hot flushes when the wraps were taken off the Koenigsegg Regera. While it's not as quick as the Chiron to 100km/h (a little over 2.8 seconds v. 2.5s), the limitation of being rear-wheel drive wears off very quickly as it races to 400km/h from standstill in around 20 seconds.
