The Car Edition – Luxury, Innovations and Technology Insights
As part of our initiative to spread the knowledge we’ve acquired, we bring you the Car Edition. (In case you missed the introduction here is the link).
1. The underrated torque
What determines how much power you can apply to an engine is not the horsepower but the torque, torque can be described as how flexible or how much force can be expressed in a given gear.
2. The RPM VS The Crankshaft
RPM are misconstrued to be the speed at which the wheels rotate.
When in reality the RPM is actually the number of revolutions the crankshaft is making per minute, not the tires.
RPM: Revolutions per minute.
Crankshaft: Located in the engine of the car, it creates a force that moves the wheels in a circular motion making the car go forward.
3. The future
Self-driven cars will have their own special license in order to be “driven” on the road. But that’s not all, future car developments will include a camera system that will be able to determine highway markings and make gentle warning sounds to alert the driver if the vehicle is drifting. This is to prevent car crashes by drivers who have fallen asleep.
4. The lubricant
Car lubricants provide a variety of benefits that helps the engine run at optimal performance.
Don’t miss the chance to visit Shell at BBT’s Supercar Test Drive Pit to learn about the benefits offered by Shell’s Helix Ultra lubricant.
