At the turn of September and October, in Warsaw and at MotoPark Ulez, Arrinera Automotive’s team performed tests of the Arrinera Hussarya supercar rolling chassis.
Lee Noble, a notable British car designer who has manufactured more than 2000 cars during his lifelong career, also participated in the tests.
Hussarya has been equipped with the 6,2-liter, V8 engine manufactured by General Motors and a manual, 6-gear gearbox, model T906HE (with torque sensing differential, self-adapting to the ground, friction coefficient), supplied by the notable Italian company - Cima. The maximum input torque of the gearbox is 900 Nm and maximum output torque - 6000 Nm.
For tests Arrinera Automotive used a driving performance analyzing device supplied by Racelogic. According to data gathered by the device, the lateral acceleration was 1,4 g. The series of tests have been designed to check the chassis for low and medium speed, therefore the maximal speed limit was set at a safe level of 250 km/h. Tests with the speed ranging from 250km/h to 350 km/h of the complete vehicle with the body have been planned for the forthcoming year and will be performed at a different R&D facility, i. a. in the United Kingdom.
During the tests lasting several days, the rolling chassis was checked extensively for the functionality and ergonomics. The construction requirements, kinematics of the control system as well as the positioning and performance of other systems have been verified. The team also tested the aerodynamic brakes (symmetric and non-symmetric flaps deflection). Mr Janusz Piechna Ph.D. D.Sc from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Energetics & Aviation from the Warsaw University of Technology also participated in testing. The chassis was tested on tires of the following sizes: 285/30/19 and 325/30/19 in the rear and 245/35/19 on the front, supplied by four different manufacturers.
