(from Sportec Press
Release) Sportec SPR1 R: Rumble in the Super Sportscar Jungle
Standing still means
moving backwards – and that is why it is tradition in the Sportec
company to try and make perfection just that bit better. For this
reason the 2010 SPR1 R now not only has a traction enhancing
four-wheel drive but also several other extras suitable for a race
track. Each wheel drive on the SPR1 R can produce 214.5 PS.
That equates to a not
unsporty Golf GTI motorization per wheel and a total performance of
a fantastic 858 PS.
The high revolution 3.6
litre flat twin engine with biturbo charge was in addition equipped
with a Smooth Flow air intake with two fuel injection ducts per
combustion chamber, titan connection rods, a valved exhaust system,
a infinitely variable cam shaft, a carbon Ram Air intake system, a
high performance charge-air cooler and two hybrid turbo chargers.
Each separate part of
the motor electronics is calibrated on Sportec’s four-wheel drive
engine test bench to the latest conditions. The results of this
precision work on the SPR1 R make a top performance of 858 Ps at
8,200/min along with a gigantic torque of 880 NM possible – and that
by just 4,800 revs.
With an optimised
start-up high performance clutch, the new four-wheel drive and a
limited slip differential the record-breaking performance is ideally
brought onto the tarmac. A traction and launch control that can be
individually adjusted by means of an “STS” touchscreen unit in the
centre console ensures an optimum start.
Thus equipped the
R-model achieves acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in only 3 seconds.
The 200 km/h mark is reached by the motorised understatement in just
8.3 seconds and the 300 km/h limit in 18 seconds.
Only on the far side of
380 km/h does the driving resistance put an end to the SPR1 R’s
speed high. For the racing track the vehicle was made a further 50
kg lighter than the M version. In addition the touchscreen unit can
be used as a data logger. It registers diverse telemetric date,
shows lap speeds and provides information on all important engine
values. A combination of Unibal mounted front and rear axles with an
active suspension calibrated for race tracks keeps the SPR1 R on
course at all achievable speeds. A further modified braking system
ensures appropriate negative acceleration – at any speed.
The trimmed down
functional chassis is pleasantly discrete for a vehicle of this
class. Although the power and sportiness of SPR1 R is evident the
overall impression still gives the impression of the understatement
so desired by a daily driver. True to the Sportec company’s motto
“more substance, less style!” Simply a breathtaking consummate
