Goodyear concept tire helps power electric cars

As the market for electric cars continues to grow, the main concern that remains for consumers is the vehicles' potential limited range, or how far they can drive before needing to be recharged. While bigger, longer-lasting batteries would always be nice, a possible solution may come from the cars' own tires. At the recent Geneva International Auto Show, Goodyear unveiled its BH03 concept tire, which generates electricity by converting the heat it builds up while driving down the road.

I drooled a little on the 2016 Ford Focus RS

Sorry Ford, but you can't bring a ridiculously appealing 315HP hot-hatch along to a motor show and not expect car fans to drool around it.

Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6: Look out world, the Brits are back

When Bentley makes a concept, it doesn’t do things by halves, and the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 is the best evidence of that we’ve seen in years. Dropping jaws here at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the deep green two-seater isn’t just a design exercise - even though that alone would be enough to have us interested - but, teasingly, the forebear of a new age of styling for the heritage company and potentially even a new line of more performance-focused models to sit alongside the Continental GT grand tourer. And, while you might associate Bentley with old-school luxury, if anything the EXP 10 Speed 6 could be the most technologically forward-looking car at the show.
