ARVW Volkswagen: diesel prototype important piece in the history a 364 kilometers.
Better know the ARVW, important piece in the history of the company. But important, yes very curious. We came across a 1980 diesel prototype that was able to beat speed records, what's more, I would say that there are no cars of this type today that move at 362 kilometers per hour. Obviously not all motor, the trick is to create a car too aerodynamic in which everything that does not help to run more, spare. They had enough to get the engine inside a truck, with its six turbocharged cylinders with intercooler and 2,400 cc of capacity. This combination was to generate 175 horses, which are few today for what they have managed to pull in diesel cars on the street, but aerodynamics and weight also count in the equation. By the way, for the more curious to say that ARVW comes from Aerodynamic Research Volkswagen. At that time what was intended with ARVW was to teach the world that diesel vehicles could be fast, also wanted to set up a mobile laboratory to improve concepts that should go hand in hand like aerodynamics and consumption. The body of this concept was made of aluminum and composite materials.
