The car that is faster than the peregrine falcon

Another novelty is the famous GEN2. For the Spanish newspaper El Mundo, the GEN2 is a single-seated car that can reach 100 kilometers in just 2.8 seconds. The formula E has already accustomed its fans to great acceleration speeds. However, 2.8 seconds further shortens the gap between the fast and the extra fast.

In addition, this same portal exposed how the creators of the vehicle made a test: "The organization of the competition has faced in a 'race' the new car with one of the fastest animals on the planet, the peregrine falcon, capable to reach 390 km / h for the more than 300 km / h that a Formula E can achieve."

Rome repeats

Last year Formula E surprised the world by announcing that one of its circuits was to be made in one of the world heritage cities (UNESCO) Rome. Now, the newspaper La Vanguardia has announced that the city, capital of the Roman Empire, will once again be the scene of this competition due to the reception it has had among the followers of this sport.

The mentioned portal portrayed in words the reception that this city had in the Formula E: "After the great results of the last edition, we are enthusiastic to officially celebrate the return of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship to Rome, with the beginning of the ticket sales, waiting to return to the capital."
