Can someone imagine a vehicle that at 110 mph is twice as efficient
as a high-tech diesel compact car? Or another that achieves 280 mph
with just 50% throttle? What if one could have both with the same
vehicle? Well, it is possible. With the Acabion!
Horse-drawn carriages could be named “the first generation of
individual vehicles“ and cars as “the second generation“. According
to this context the Acabion paves the way for a third generation of
individual human mobility.
A new way of thinking is expressed by the Acabion. It combines the
best of different traditional approaches. Additionally it integrates
certain sophisticated aeronautic and bionic concepts. This way it
excels in both at the same time. The Acabion achieves more than the
efficiency of a high-tech diesel compact car and the dynamics of
even the most powerful supercars.
With the Acabion, automotive values are newly defined. The new
standard means slim instead of wide. It means light instead of
heavy. It means truly bionic and streamlined instead of bulky. Most
of all it means to be fundamentally innovative throughout the entire
concept, instead of following isolated trends just in isolated
So how does the Acabion solve traditional contradictions? It is
light AND secure. It is slim AND comfortable. It is useful AND
beautiful. It is tremendously effective AND extremely fast. A total
weight of 359 kg combined with an engine power of 360 hp enables the
Acabion to exceed 1000 hp per ton of vehicle-weight. It achieves an
electronically limited 280 mph with just 50% of its engine power,
accelerating from 180 mph to 280 mph in approximately 10 seconds,
which is impossible even for Formula 1 cars. Even with such a
performance it consumes 5 to 10 times less fuel than a state of the
art two-seater supercar. More than this, cruising at a constant
speed, e.g. 120 mph, it is so efficient that it even consumes half
the amount of fuel than a 2006 high-tech diesel compact-car.
Tailor-made versions of the Acabion can be provided anything up to
700 hp, and a range of internal fittings. All those types are even
more dynamic but not less efficient.
The Acabion is a vehicle with a passenger-compartment for two
adults. Its security is based on the concept of Formula 1 race-cars.
On top of that the passengers are additionally protected with
Each Acabion is a masterpiece of German car design and manufacturing
competence, based on most reliable Japanese as well as US-American
components, combined with Swiss quality and precision. All Acabions
will be equiped with an additional electric drive for zero-emission
operation on short distances like on private terrain, in car park
areas or central urban regions. A computer network is on board for
the passengers, providing a high-tech modular structure and storage
capacity in a multi-terrabyte region. All Acabions are conceptually
prepared, even for a future, fully-automated, individual
The Acabion is the mobile trendsetter of the 21st century. This
trend means: the environment and the global natural resources are
much better protected for our children and for their children, too.
Plus, for all generations to come, everyone can be mobile in an
almost unlimited way. The Acabion combines this
environment-protecting, comfortable and extended mobility with a
never known sensation of both dynamics and efficiency.
We will start production
in April 2006. And we will deliver to the USA too. No better country
for cruising around in an Acabion. This is not depending on speed.
Production time per unit is about 2 years: One man builds one
Acabion. The producer is an airplane builder. The Acabion is the
Gerald Genta of future road traffic.
We have hundreds of unique and very special features to offer in the
unique Acabion. Just a very few samples:
A) You decide the precise shape of your Acabion: Length, width, and
height will be adjusted to your feeling of perfect proportions and
dynamics. The Acabion shown in Geneva ist the smallest possible
version in terms of width and height. It has 1/3 projected area of a
B) The Acabion is to come with a computer cockpit, a fast ethernet
computer-network with 3 terrabyte capacity plus fast WLAN and
internet access (UMTS in Europe).
C) The Acabion provides an ultimately precise and brilliant Syrincs
Oxygen Soundsystem 2 times Dolby 5.1 digital for driver and copilot
separately, a sound system developed exclusively for Acabion. There
is one huge acoustical advantage of the Acabions cockpit towards any
car: It is symmetric. And we make a full use out of this advantage.
The GTBO 36 System represents a value of about 100.000 Euro.
D) Engine with US dragster components. 300 modifications to serial
E) All parts of body and interiour from Carbon / Kevlar and
handmade, in accordance to high airplane quality standards.
F) Seats in accordance to the Acabion patent: Protection for the
complete passengers’ body is like inside a helmet.
G) Fail-safe structure with ultralight steelframe and carbon
H) Perfect maintainability: The body is completely disassemblable.
350 torx screws take the static and dynamic forces. The engine is
acousticaly isolated from the cockpit. It has a seperate steelframe
and can be disassembled for inspection by removing just three
I) The Acabion can drive as a cabriolet: Pilots hood can be fixed
J) Electric drive for backward movement, also capable of moving the
Acabion foreward at 30 mph and for about 10 miles distance.
(Strategy in behind: Avoiding engine coldstarts).
This list could be continued for hours.
An Acabion will always be absolute individually and tailormade for
customer-needs. Quality is handmande swiss precision, throughout the
complete vehicle on a level as the most sophisticated swiss
mechanical watches. Price GTBO 36 starts at 540.000 Euro. A complete
individual toolset (carbon forms interiour and exteriour ...) for
any later parts supply is included.
For later years from 2012 onwards we plan a second brand with a
different name and concept. Aluminium-body standardized streamliners
will then be produced like todays cars. Power around 150 hp. Prices
around 60.000 Euro then. Anyhow the Acabion will for all times stay
the ''Genta'' of future road traffic. It will stay extremely rare
and extremely capable. Production volume will never exceed just a
handful of Acabion in a year.
