Подразделение Volkswagen Australia в единственном экземпляре построило самый быстрый Volkswagen Arteon специально для уик-энда World Time Attack Challenge.

Подразделение Volkswagen Australia представило самый мощный Arteon — проект ART3on, созданный на базе серийного Volkswagen Arteon 206TSI R-Line специально для гоночного уик-энда World Time Attack Challenge на трассе Sydney Motorsport Park.

За основу был взят автомобиль с 280-сильным 2-литровым мотором, отдачу которого за счёт нового блока управления, более производительной турбиной и комплекта тюнинга Stage 3 от RacingLine увеличили до 490 л.с.

Кроме более мощного двигателя Volkswagen Arteon получил подвеску Bilstein, полу-слики Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo, а также каркас безопасности, гоночные сиденья с ремнями безопасности, выключатель электропитания и встроенный огнетушитель.

Также новый ART3on отличается особой ливреей, которую разработал специально для этого автомобиля уличный художник из Сиднея Саймон Мюррей.

По итогам тестов на трассе Luddenham Raceway в Новом Южном Уэльсе Volkswagen ART3on смог разогнаться с места до 100 км/ч за 3,9 секунды, а вскоре его ждут шоу-заезды уже в рамках WTAC в Сиднее.

Volkswagen apprentices collaborate with Aussie auto industry to build super car

Volkswagen apprentices collaborate with Aussie auto industry to build super car

 

§  Volkswagen Arteon luxury sedan turned into a race car to debut at World Time Attack Challenge event in Sydney tomorrow and Saturday.

 

 

Chullora, Sydney: Volkswagen Australia has today unveiled an industry-wide collaboration project, dubbed the ART3on: a track-ready customised Arteon sedan built by a team of VW apprentices.

 

Volkswagen Australia’s Apprentice Build Challenge selects a team of high-achieving VW apprentices test their skills on a unique build design.

 

Last year’s team turned a 2.2-tonne Amarok V6 ute into a race-going track vehicle that became a viral superstar on social media and has set impressive lap times around Australia’s premier tracks.

 

This year Volkswagen has offered up another unlikely vehicle to customise: the Arteon luxury saloon. The apprentices had one week to turn the $70,000 sedan into a record breaking track car.

 

The apprentices were monitored by Volkswagen Australia’s technical division and innovators from the Australian automotive community. 

 

Luka Popovac, national customer experience and capability manager, said that the program, now in its second year, is “unique in the Australian automotive sector”.

 

“Not only has the ART3on inspired our apprentices, we hope it will also inspire a new generation of technicians to pick up a trade in Australian automotive,” he said.   

 

The result is also unique: 360 kilowatt race-ready car complete with a one-of artwork created for the car by renowned Sydney street artist Simon Murray, AKA KADE.

 

At its official unveiling at World Time Attack Challenge on Friday the car will be driven at Sydney Motorsport Park by in-demand driver Renato Loberto.

 

The ART3on makes 360kW of power and 600Nm of torque. Tested on an uphill straight at Luddenham Raceway in Sydney it reached 100km/h from standing in 3.9 seconds.
