H Genty Automobile παρουσίασε σήμερα το νέο της supercar, το Akylone. Οι Γάλλοι το αναπτύσσουν εδώ και 4 χρόνια και μηχανικά φορά έναν V8 twin-turbo κινητήρα τοποθετημένο στο κέντρο ο οποίος αποδίδει 1000 άλογα στις 8.000 σ.α.λ με 1.200 Nm ροπής. Συνδυάζεται με ένα 7-τάχυτο σειριακό κιβώτιο με paddles στο τιμόνι και ζυγίζει 1.100 κιλά. Έχει μήκος 4.467 μέτρα, πλάτος 2.050 μέτρα, ύψος 1.115 μέτρα με μετατρόχιο 2.780 μέτρα. Έχει αναλογία βάρους 42/58 μπροστά-πίσω, και τα 0-100 χλμ/ώρα τα κάνει σε 2.7 δευτ, τα 0-200 χλμ/ώρα σε 7.2 δευτ, τα 0-300 χλμ/ώρα σε 14 δευτ, το 400άρι σε 9.8 δευτ, το 1.000μετρο 16.6 δευτ. με την τελική να αγγίζει τα 350 χλμ/ώρα.

Το αυτοκίνητο έχει αεροδυναμικό συντελεστή 0.35 Cd και φορά ένα monoblock σασί από carbon με αλουμινένια μέρη. Οι αναρτήσεις του είναι της Ohlins και έχουνε αρχιτεκτονική με διπλά ψαλίδια μπροστά/πίσω με αντιστρεπτικές ράβδους. Τα φρένα του είναι της MOV’IT με 6-πίστονες δαγκάνες μπροστά και carbon δίσκους 396 mm και 4-πίστονες δαγκάνες πίσω με carbon δίσκους 380 mm. Τέλος πατά πάνω σε ζάντες 20″ με ελαστικά 265/30 μπροστά και 335/30 πίσω.

Το supercar θα κατασκευαστεί σε μόλις 15 μονάδες και θα μπορεί να παραμετροποιηθεί αναλόγως με τις επιθυμίες του πελάτη. Μην περιμένεις να δεις gadget και άλλες τέτοιες ανέσεις στο αυτοκίνητο, αφού βασικός στόχος ήταν από την αρχή να κρατηθεί όσο γίνεται χαμηλότερο το βάρος του. Το μόνο που μπορεί να κάνει η εταιρία, είναι να σου αφαιρέσει όποια στοιχεία άνεσης διαθέτει το Akylone, αν το θέλεις ακόμη ελαφρύτερο.

Το αυτοκίνητο θα παρουσιαστεί στην έκθεση του Παρισιού τον Οκτώβριο του 2012 και η τιμή του θα ανακοινωθεί μόνο στους ενδιαφερόμενους. H εταιρία θα το πάει και στο Nurburgring έτσι ώστε να προσπαθήσει να κάνει νέο ρεκόρ ταχύτερου γύρου αυτοκινήτου παραγωγής, ενώ δεν αποκλείει το ενδεχόμενο να το βάλει να συμμετέχει και στον 24-ωρο αγώνα του Le Mans. Περισσότερες λεπτομέρειες μπορείς να βρεις στο δελτίο τύπου που ακολουθεί, αλλά αν έχεις χρόνο ρίξε και μια ματιά στο site του.

1/ What are the origins of the project ?

First of all, this project was born from a boy’s dream who grew up with posters of the Ferrari F40, FORD GT 40 or Lamborghini and was thinking out mad mechanical adventures in the straight line of Hunaudières (Le Mans).

Since then, the world of super cars has evolved with new brands like Pagani, Koenigsegg or the return of Bugatti under the reign of VAG Group. This has imposed new standards of performance, strength, technology, security, and luxury … but there is a price to pay: the weight, which counteracts the efficiency of the dynamical behavior on the road and has a direct effect on the decrease of driving sensation.

With this in mind the idea of AKYLONE was born: the whole concept will be dedicated to the pleasure of driving and to real unfiltered sensations. Moreover, why should France with its own glorious racing past deny itself the creation of such a machine? This is the challenge we have taken on.

2/ Is it a car exclusively for track use or will it have an official approval and homologation for road service?

This car, although a racecar by its looks, it will be homologated for road service by Idiada, the Spanish homologation services in Barcelona, who homologate most super cars.

Idiada has already audited our project with result that Akylone complies with all specified requirements. Only a physical crash test has still to be carried out.

For countries, which are not covered by this homologation we commit ourselves to obtain an individual type approval on the demand of the client.

3/ How many times will AKYLONE be produced?

Akylone will only be produced in 15 units. Akylone doesn’t compromise between power and lightweight, between technology and design or beauty and efficiency. This perfect synthesis is only possible through an extreme care, which is taken throughout its mainly manual construction process and through the use of the most advanced materials and technologies. This turns Akylone into a very desirable but rare object, a real object of art, born out of and for the emotions of real enthusiasts.

4/ Can AKYLONE be personalised?

On the basis of its largely manual construction in line with the prestigious French craftsmanship industry the possibilities of personalising Akylone will probably turn each finished car into one of a kind. Combining exceptional materials for the interior with an individual exterior colour is exclusively subject to the imagination of the future owner supported by the advice and a helping hand from our technicians.

All the equipment of Akylone is standard equipment, which is either technically or functionally necessary. The design of Akylone, rigorously orientated towards the reduction of weight, did not leave any room for gadgets or the unnecessary. For the most extreme purists and in the interest of further weight reduction, Akylone can be cleared in part or completely of any comfort elements.

5/ Where will the production site of AKYLONE be situated?

Production will be situated in St Pourcain sur Sioule, a little town in the center of France for different reasons: It is the home town of Frederic GENTY, the manager of GENTY AUTOMOBILE and creator of AKYLONE This is a region where many well known luxury craftsmen are based Preliminary testing of AKYLONE will take place on the airfield of VICHY CHARMEIL and further development on the MICHELIN DE LADOUX test tracks.

6/ How will it be possible to buy AKYLONE ?

AKYLONE will be sold in two different ways: Directly from the manufacturer where it will be possible for clients to follow the different stages of production of their car. Through French or international agents and dealers who are specialized in the trade of luxury products.

The price of Akylone will be disclosed on special request.

7/ Where and when will it be possible to discover AKYLONE?

Akylone will be presented for the first time at the 2012 Paris motor show, on the stand of our sponsor, the watchmaker BRM (Bernard Richards Manufacture). Afterwards the car will be displayed on national and international specialized fairs.

Furthermore we shall organize press days and public days as well as individual special events on our site.

8/ Are you going to participate in tentative records and races?

Akylone has been conceived for performance and success on the track. Akylone will not avoid competition, to the contrary, it has been written into its genes. And what could be better to prove this than the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife? There, with Akylone Genty Automobile will try to beat the lap record for road-approved cars. But Akylone will not stop there and could in the medium term try to prove its excellence and endurance in the 24 hours of Le Mans, thus reviving the epical stories of our, of your childhood …
