A cross between a Quad bike with a supercar has a length of 4670 mm, height 950, and the wheelbase is 2650 mm. the Body is made of carbon fiber.

Slovak company Engler Automotive Limited unveiled at the Geneva motor show exotic vehicle named Engler F. F., which she describes as Superquad — “the world’s first superquadratic”. The manufacturer officially does not advertise the Foundation, although it is clear that hiding inside the chassis components and powertrain, and engine from the Audi R8.

The company reports that its founder Victor Engler (pictured) dreamed of creating your own car in ten years. And set a goal: the machine needs to be unique and to create an unusual feeling of driving.

In any case, borrowing can definitely identify the 5.2 V10 engine, which in F. F. received two driven supercharger that raised the power up to 800 forces. They have only 800 kg curb weight, so from zero to hundreds accelerates Superquad for 2.5 s, and the maximum speed exceeds 350 km/h. All of these dynamics is comparable to sportbike, however, it seems that in the saddle Engler, the driver will feel less confident, because the turns of the F. F. is not tilted.

The manufacturer has not specified the price or the potential circulation of the new model. However, even if it remains a concept, it’ll work as is. Following the Engler machine might be more traditional.

Note that the idea in any way to cross different worlds (cars, motorcycles, quads and ATV) do not just come into the heads of enthusiasts. But most developers still has paid considerable attention to the protection of the driver and passengers. Most controversial in this case was a single unit Honda Project 2&4, but at least there seat with racing belts were present. And if the designers turned to the driver “motor” (actually lying on his chest, head forward), surrounded by a protective cocoon (machine-suit), as in the projects Ultimate McLaren and Chaparral 2X VGT. In Slovak the monster in case, say, of the revolution the inhabitants to not count on that.

Plerodomiana brake is then matched to what supercars do wheels and tires, but the driver is not fixed. But back theoretically and passengers may be. But for overclocking both will get a full package of sensations, including sound compressor “ten” coming from the original titanium exhaust system.

The emblem of the brand, a stylized horse head, has its own history (more on that below). Form of the symbol, however, alludes to the letter S, the first word in the Superquad.

However, the angler is full of optimism: “We will not surrender, we are going to leave your mark in history.” Source of inspiration the company calls the horse — that became the emblem. This is not just an abstract fiction, and the Secretariat, aka Big Red, the famous American racehorse, who in 1973 won three prestigious competitions for three years old for the first time in 25 years, setting speed records. After the death of Secretariat in 1989, an autopsy revealed that he had a heart weighing ten pounds, about three times more than the average horse.

Quick release bonnet and rear from talking about sports the purpose of the prototype. Upon closer inspection, also found the skeleton in the cabin and racing seats.

Unusual Dacia Duster first generation (and even previous) recently spotted by the photographers near the Arctic circle. The engineers of Renault Sport Department has tested this unit on one of the frozen lakes. The car is noteworthy in many respects. First, it is fully electric. Secondly, racing and three-door (or rather two, because the back opens with no wing, and a body section).

On the front of the prototype mounted Brembo brake calipers, rear — Renault Alpine.

Explanation the prototype, there are several. First: experts Dacia and Renault Duster use this as a prototype for testing some solutions racing all-wheel drive electric vehicle. This brings to mind the French championship races on ice Andros Trophy, which was made by Dacia. Interestingly, it even was used adapted ice track compact MPV Lodgy. However, the next racing partner apparatus can be battery-operated Duster.

In the championship, the Andros Trophy for several years there is an electric class. It uses the same rear-wheel drive 122-horsepower electric company Exagon engineering (pictured). In 2020 there should appear in its own category electric poluprovodnikov, reminds the edition Autoevolution.

It is not known yet what form the electric apparatus will be presented. But at least for the Duster wouldn’t be the first insight into the Motorsport, including a thorough processing of the entire structure. Suffice it to recall the mid-engined 850-horsepower rally car Duster No Limit with barbastelle from the Nissan GT-R, created several years ago for pikes Peak.

Indirectly, the prototype says about another. Brand Dacia, with the assistance of its partners, the group gains experience with electric drive. So, in the future can to please buyers of any serial electric vehicles. On this scenario, that is, the conversion of electric vehicles from expensive products in bulk and more affordable, and talk to other brands of the Alliance Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi. And even show you an example of conceptsthat hold the course. So in a perspective of road Duster on batteries may not be such a fantasy.

The pictures in the news car shows in the snow, but she was taken out and on the ice. The tires were studded.

There is an alternative explanation for the experiment. In the body of the Duster can hide units future electric SUV brand Alpine. Then we are not talking about budget machines, and on their direct opposites — prestigious models on batteries. In this case, Duster paves the way rival such SUVs as the Mercedes-Benz EQC, I Jaguar-Pace and Audi e-tron.

Suzuki clear benefits, what about Toyota? It needs support in the markets of India and Africa.
