The development of technology has led to a lot of fantasy science
fiction into reality, such as mentioned in this article can be
both heaven car into the water, ignition
coil replacement it is called "Splash", is a Swiss car
modification company out of the super modified car. The car show
at the same time, but also continue to upgrade its performance
In participating in this year's Geneva Motor Show, Rinspeed company succeeded in Switzerland for the first time trial of the "Splash". After a long trial, the company just announced their conversion secret at the show as well as professional automotive magazines.
Powered by turbocharged two-cylinder gas engine
Splash a lightweight power source capacity of 750 cm3 two-cylinder turbocharged gas engine. Natural gas is a very clean fuel. 200SX coilovers Splash is also the world's first engine equipped with such future-oriented technology amphibious vehicles. This 2-cylinder 4-valve turbo engine was originally used on boats and snowmobiles, it can release a maximum power of 140 hp / 7000 rpm, do not worry about its performance capabilities street, 825 kg curb weight ensures excellent performance. The maximum speed of the car traveling on land close to 200 km / h, while the required acceleration to 100 km / h time of just 5.9 seconds.
As a result of ultra-light carbon fiber body, and the body inside
several additional buoyancy tanks, so when the car pulled into
the water when to float on the water. The body has a rear
propeller clover, usually stored in the rear fold, when water
depth can reach 1.1 meters when spread out. With the rear wheels,
as the propeller is driven by the engine and operated by the
steering wheel, its position is designed to be adjustable to
ensure that the water is in a central location. Engineers have
borrowed the advanced computer-aided design technology. Using the
computer speed, accurate information processing capability of the
car shape to the optimized design. In simple terms, is to travel
on land suitable for water navigation, as well as people in the
eyes of the most beautiful shape all the data entered into the
computer, through the operation of the computer, to find an
optimal shape design.
When the water depth reached 1.3 meters above, 240SX coilovers Splash can also expand a more sci-fi color systems. Usually the rear of the vehicle body as a U-shaped spoiler metal frame can be rotated 180 degrees and placed in the water, is directly beneath the car. And be operated by a hydraulic control system in the body below the folded foil on both sides of this case can be rotated 90 degrees downward to open, then it can be like a boat Splash in water travel the same.
