One of the most crucial factors in making a fast car is considering how much down-force the car has. Down-force describes the way air interacts with the aerodynamic design of the car to keep it onto the road. That way, the tyres are always firmly planted to deliver you the best possible acceleration and handling. The McLaren P1 is one such car for which downforce is crucial, but how does it all work? Take a look at how air sculpts these insane hypercars.
In November of 2011, American commercial airlines consumed 1.83 million litres of fuel — every day — and paid a total of $US49.8 billion that month to do so.

Boeing thinks one possible solution is its new plug-in hybrid jet concept that burns 70 per cent less gas per flight with the help of local power grid.
