TROIA SUPERCAR RUN

 

From the first to last build each Tramontana is customised to the needs and wants of the driver. Unlike automobiles before it, a Tramontana is created and built from the imagination of the client. From its technical mechanical specifications to the driver inspired cockpit, it is customised to the individual, making each Tramontana a one-of-a-kind original, never to be replicated again. It is because of this, a Tramontana should not be seen as mere car, but a unique work of art for all the world to see.

It has a V-12 720/888 hp engine

 

All this makes the car accelerates under 3.3 seconds from 0 to 100km/h.

 

The power is sent directly to the rear wheels.

No Tramontana is exactly the same, and that’s the key attribute of its personality. Carbon fiber, titanium, gold and wood are just an example of materials used in its construction. Seats are arranged in tandem to achieve superior aerodynamics and a better weight distribution.

Each specimen is unique and tailored at the customer’s taste: colours, materials, technical specifications, etc. In addition, an in-depth study of the personal ergonomics is conducted in every car.

The Aero GT is the ultimate ensemble of this formula.”

- Steve Morris, Managing Director

The Morgan Motor Company has today revealed its most extreme road- going model to date, the Aero GT. The family owned, British manufacturer officially unveiled the car at the 88th International Geneva Motor Show.

The longest established independent automotive manufacturer, Morgan Motor Company will produce just eight of the special Aero GT variants. All vehicles will be individually built to the exacting specification of each customer. The Aero GT represents the end of Aero 8 production, guaranteeing that every Aero 8 owner will be the custodian of a very significant piece of Morgan history.

All 8 examples have been allocated through the Morgan Global Retailor network, and will be built with a manual transmission. Powered by the same 367bhp BMW N62 V8 engine used in the Aero 8, the Aero GT will travel from 0- 62mph in 4.5 seconds, reaching a top speed of 170mph. Each Aero GT will benefit from Morgan’s latest adjustable suspension.

The Aero GT will be built by the Morgan Special Projects department, which has an established history of producing models with even greater levels of

exclusivity along with one off, individually commissioned vehicles. Morgan’s approach will see each Aero GT built as an individual special edition, rather than eight identical examples.

From placing their order, each customer will have the opportunity to receive an individual design consultancy from Jon Wells, Morgan’s Head of Design. Following this stage, the car will then enter production, remaining in build for between 8-10 weeks. As with any Morgan, each customer will have the opportunity to follow the build of their vehicle closely and witness their car come to life.

The dramatic evolution of the Aero GT is most striking in its restyled wing impressions and louvres. Their addition is one that serves both functional and aesthetic advantages, and were developed alongside the design of the latest Aero 8 in 2015.

Development of the latest Aero 8 focused on redeveloping the aluminium chassis to make it stiffer and introduce all-new front and rear suspension to improve driving dynamics. The introduction of a newly developed soft-top and the redesign of the rear of the car lead to further research by Morgan Special Projects into the effects that body form features have on aerodynamic performance.

Taking inspiration from the aggressive aerodynamic profiles seen on Morgan’s striking 2009 GT3 race car, similar body form functions were explored during the development of the Aero 8. However, these were not immediately put into production but paved the way for future exploration of what a ‘gloves off’ Aero 8 could look like.

For the final eight Aero 8 vehicles, Morgan’s design department applied knowledge developed throughout the research process of the latest Aero 8 in order to introduce the aerodynamic enhancements as seen on the Aero GT.

It was crucial that the new styling features did not seem purely functional, and remained true to Morgan’s iconic design approach, striking a balance of exhilarating performance along with head-turning aesthetics.

The striking body panels of the Aero GT have been sculpted in such a way to ensure that tension and elegance is expressed in each line. All surfacing of the new panels was proven digitally via Computation Fluid Dynamics simulation prior to full scale validation. Each panel is created using the technologically advanced Superforming process synonymous with modern Morgans, before being hand finished and transformed into Aero GT panels.

Acting in conjunction with the front canard details, the wing top louvre vents are proven to reduce low pressure on the sides of the Aero body, making a notable difference in frontal downforce. At the rear, the dramatic diffuser reduces air pressure from beneath the vehicle, increasing rear downforce. This feature has the added benefit of reducing the visual weight of the rear- end.

All Aero GT’s have the option of a carbon fibre hard-top. Taking inspiration from 1960s race cars, the hard-top on the Aero GT benefits from the addition of a rearward facing roof vent that reflects the rear graphic of the tail-light, whilst improving the drag coefficient of the vehicle.

Finite enamelled ‘GT’ badges signify the model variant. Each is individually hand made by a British Jeweller.

The interior is hand-finished with a series of painted stitching and pinstripe accents, and an extended choice of wood options.

“The Aero GT, unlike its predecessors adopts an unconventionally aggressive aesthetic. However, a purist approach to achieving a design in which ‘form follows function’ has been rigidly adhered to. This is most apparent in the new additions to the body work.

The additional wing top louvres, side impressions and dramatic rear diffuser have all been tested extensively to ensure they work together to reduce drag and increase road holding capability. The merits of these additions were first unearthed during the early development phases of the 2015 Aero 8 whilst we were exploring the requirements of a more aerodynamically efficient Aero. This was a key requirement of the initial Aero 8 brief.

Each new panel has been sculpted by hand, by Morgan master craftsmen. The beauty of working so closely with talented sheet metal workers and coachbuilders is that designers are relatively unrestrained in their ability to challenge the forms and their functions. Unlike many, we can make special limited-edition vehicles that really exercise the imagination of the designer and the ability of the craftsman.

The Aero range has always offered Morgan the platform to explore the boundaries of mechanical and styling design and I am delighted the family has allowed one of our wildest ideas to become a reality.”

ZENVO AUTOMOTIVE PRESENTS TSR-S

At the Geneva International Motor Show 2018 we unveiled the highly anticipated new model TSR-S: a crossover between the TS1 GT car and its racetrack-bred sibling, the TSR. The TSR-S is a street legal version of the TSR – hence the ’S’ in the model name.

The aerodynamic development of the TSR-S was focused on providing unprecedented driving dynamics. The unique and innovative new features all collaborate to improve stability, cornering and breaking.

Exclusively available on the TSR-S, its Centripetal Wing revolutionises stability and high-speed cornering.The TSR-S delivers 1177bhp at 8,500 RPM in a package over 100kg lighter than the TS1 GT. 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds, 0-200 km/h (124 mph) in just 6.8 seconds.

Advanced aerodynamic design

The new front splitter is designed to improve front to rear downforce distribution by generating front downforce and directing air to the underbody. The front bumper is updated together with the front wheel housing outlets. Together they decrease the front wheel wake and direct air to the intercoolers. At the same time the front wheel housing outlets extracts air from the front underbody, improving downforce and decreasing drag.

The rear body of the car features major updates with an air scoop, new diffuser that is optimized to extract air from the underbody and decrease the rear tyre wake.

The ground-breaking Centripetal Wing has two rotation degrees of freedom enabling it function as an air break and cornering stabilizer. When the TSR-S corners the wing rotates around the car’s longitudinal direction generating an inward force together with the conventional downforce. This boosts inner tyre grip and cornering stability.

The wing concept is focused on delivering high downforce while increasing the tyre load on the inboard tyres when cornering. Conventional movable wing and flap designs, focused on inboard tyre load, function by a penalty concept where downforce is increased on the inboard section of the cornering car but not on the outboard section. The TSR-S Centripetal Wing concept is able to maintain the high downforce and generate a large inwards directed force.

KOENIGSEGG AGERA RS 

The Fastest Car In The World (284.55mph)

The new Agera RS pushes the boundaries and takes the Agera to all new levels of performance. 

The new Koenigsegg Agera RS has its focus set firmly on the track but is still perfect for regular use on the road. It uses advanced technology developed during our exclusive Koenigsegg One:1 program, while maintaining all the functionality of previous S and R models. Such practicalities include a usable luggage compartment and a detachable hardtop that can be stowed internally for top-down motoring at any time.

Agera RS enhancements include: advanced lightweight sound insulation, an all-new front splitter optimized for the track, front winglets, side skirts, advanced dynamic underbody flap system and a dynamically active rear spoiler for added down force (now up to 450 kg at 250 km/h). The RS also features improved side air outlets behind the front wheels, increased power and a raised rpm limit. 

Even with all this added functionality and equipment, we have still managed to lower the curb weight compared to the Agera S and R models, thanks to the use of advanced composites and layup techniques developed during the One:1 program.

On top of the standard equipment, the Agera RS also offers the option to choose the Koenigsegg active and self-levelling chassis package, 3G connected Pre-Active chassis setups, alternative aero packages, active sound cancellation and much more.

The engine – as with the previous Agera S – has been optimized for regular pump gas and now puts out an incredible 1160 bhp on regular petrol. That’s an astonishing 232 bhp per liter with perfect reliability. 

In certain markets, the Agera RS can also be configured to run on E85 for even higher power levels, while the engine management system offers the ability to adjust on-the-fly to any fuel mix at any given time. 

The Agera RS is the ultimate in road and track versatility. It offers the most extreme performance available today and yet is fully road legal, complying with safety standards and other necessary homologation requirements worldwide.

The RS will be handcrafted in only 25 examples, with 10 pre-sold prior to the first showing.

A Koenigsegg Agera RS driven by factory driver, Niklas Lilja, achieved five new world records for a production vehicle on November 4th, 2017, in Pahrump, Nevada:

THE HIGHEST TOP SPEED FOR A PRODUCTION VEHICLE

Calculated using an average of two runs, one in either direction. The record speed achieved is 447.19 km/h (277.87 mph)

0-400-0 km/h

The 0-400-0 km/h run was completed in 33.29 seconds, beating the previous time of 36.44 seconds set by the same car in Denmark in October 2017.

FLYING KILOMETER ON A PUBLIC ROAD

The highest average speed for a flying kilometer on a public road, calculated after running the car in two directions – 445.63 km/h (276.9 mph)

FLYING MILE ON A PUBLIC ROAD

The highest average speed for a flying mile on a public road, calculated after running the car in two directions – 444.76 km/h (276.36 mph)

HIGHEST SPEED ACHIEVED ON A PUBLIC ROAD

Single direction recorded. Measured at 457.94 km/h (284.55 mph)

 

PORSCHE GT2 RS

On a performance mission

With the new 911 GT2 RS, the Porsche motorsport department has developed the ultimate driving machine. A selected group of journalists had the opportunity to experience the sports car.

The GT2 RS is the fastest and most powerful 911 with approval for use on the road. On September 20 2017, the vehicle achieved a record lap for road-approved sports cars on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, achieving the feat in 6 minutes and 47.3 seconds with Porsche test driver Lars Kern behind the wheel. The 515 kW (700 hp; combined fuel consumption: 11.8 l/100 km; urban: 18.1 l/100 km; extra-urban: 8.2 l/100 km; CO2 emissions: 269 g/km) delivered by the biturbo flat engine catapulted the two-seater vehicle – which weighs 1,470 kilograms – from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds. After 8.3 seconds, the speedometer clocked a speed of 200 km/h and continued moving up to a top speed of 340 km/h.

Discipline in sport means mastering every detail. Powerful air intakes and outlets and the imposing rear wing emphasise that the vehicle’s aerodynamics have mastered both form and design. Its large, wide wheels represent superior brake and lateral forces. The 265/35 ZR 20 (front) and 325/30 ZR 21 (rear) are the widest tyre dimensions that Porsche has fitted on a 911. Numerous elements made of carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic in a matt black carbon-weave finish are visible indications of the lightweight construction throughout.

911 GT2 RS: test in Portimão

How the GT2 RS feels on the racetrack has now been tested by 60 selected journalists from 19 countries. For this purpose, the sports car manufacturer invited to the circuit "Autódromo Internacional do Algarve" in Portimão, Portugal. The event was also joined by some motorsport celebrities: Mark Webber, Walter Röhrl and Hans-Joachim Stuck did not want to miss this opportunity.

“On the road, the GT2 RS recalibrates the space-time continuum. Torque and traction hurl you out of corners, and the lightning-quick shifts of the heavy-duty seven-speed PDK transmission—it uses parts from the 918 Spyder—barely interrupt the relentless acceleration.”
motortrend.com

“The GT2 RS is a pinnacle car, one that sits at the top of the Porsche range in terms of both its price and its level of performance. If you want the fastest and the most viscerally thrilling version then this is undoubtedly it, the ultimate incarnation of a roadgoing 911 to date. This is a sports car that can humble most exotics on a track and a remarkable achievement for the team that developed it. The only certainty on past experience is that, at some point in the not-too-distant future, Porsche will create something even faster.”
caranddriver.com

“The GT team have done an amazing job and the car feels totally progressive, predictable and safe in the hands of an experienced driver.”
carbuzz.com

"The most fearsome, trackworthy Porsche is no longer the naturally aspirated GT3. If Nürburgring Nordschleife lap times mean anything to you, the wondrously capable 918 Spyder has also been eclipsed. The latest King of the ‘Ring and sharpest weapon in the Porsche lineup is the (…) 911 GT2 RS, a twin-turbocharged, 700 horsepower, rear wheel-drive monster that demolished a lap of the 12.9-mile ‘Ring in 6:47.3.”
motorauthority.com

“And it’s an engine that simply does not give up. Top speed is electronically limited to 340km/h, only because the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 rubber isn’t designed for more. Seventh gear can theoretically do 370km/h, although engineers admit that aerodynamics will slow things somewhere in the 350s. Besides, they figured 340km/h was probably enough.”
