New small car
We thought it was time for another update on the development of our new small car, progress is going well and a number of parts have already been designed, 3D tested and produced, the mock up chassis is ready for an Aluminium version to be produced and we have even chosen what gearbox the car will use.
Development is on target and many aspects of the new car are starting to fall into place, although there is still no sign of any bodywork yet, it’s more important to get the chassis right first time around. We love the enthusiasm of those who continue to write to us asking for images, but we are afraid you will have to wait just a little bit longer before we have anything to show you.
When producing a car we always start with safety, it’s an imperative subject for anyone producing a race car and something we take very seriously here at Aquila. The chassis has been designed around keeping the driver safe while following regulations and guidelines that all modern race cars use. We will use a crash box in the front of the car and a successful computer simulation has already been completed.
Some of the major developments we are working on include the monocoque, suspension, uprights and wishbone all with completed computer designs. We have already produced uprights that will undergo testing later this month and the mock up monocoque feels fantastic, very safe and spacious. We predict an aluminium version will give the driver a feeling of security with plenty room to get comfortable whilst driving.
