Some of Batista's remarks on the recording, including a comment that he would never go to jail, have further enraged Brazilians. The former chairman of JBS SA, Joesley Batista, turned himself in after a high-court judge issued a warrant for his arrest.

Mercedes has fielded over 1,000 applications for the Project ONE, and 275 lucky buyers will have a chance to purchase one. Mercedes says the Project One is the first vehicle with Formula One underpinnings that is approved for road use by Britain's Ministry of Transportation (MOT).

We are talking about a turbocharged, 1.6-liter V6 that's helped by two electric motors, one attached straight to the crank and the other one in charge of boosting the turbo and thus say goodbye to any type of turbo lag. A hypercar with an F1 engine that can be driven on the road, simple as that. The rev limit has dropped from 16,000rpm to "only" 11,000.

As Hurricane Irma took aim at central Florida on Monday, police around the state are working day and night to keep residents safe. Deputies were notified after the homeowners were monitoring their homes via surveillance.

As we mentioned, the engine is a 1.6-litre V6 with a "split turbo" that is created to keep the hot turbine away from the actual compressor. The Formula 1 designation for this unit is MGU-H (Motor Generator Unit Heat).

KERS-style energy recovery features on the front wheel motors, too.When coasting off-throttle, the system switches back to electric drive on the front axle to recuperate energy, fed back into the batteries. The large rear spoiler extends in two stages to improve aero efficiency and stability as the air speed increases, while a cluster of smaller fins above each front wheel also control air flow according to road speed. Each electric motor is controlled by its own power electronics located in close proximity to the electric motors in the floor assembly.

Meanwhile, the transmission is an 8-speed automated manual.
