The value of 1000 hp seems to be the new barrier that will reach or even exceed that will more supercars manufacturers. Now we get a new actor on this stage: Genty Akylone. Let’s see what gives French supercar.
A new exclusive brand, a new model who wants to compete with the Bugatti Veyron. This time, the new car comes from France and thrown into battle 1000 hp: Meet Akylone Genty, a supercar that is ready to be launched into production after a gestation period of four years, the creation of a team of specialists from various areas.
On the stylistic level, Genty Akylone cannot say that surprises with a high-life style GTsports, following the shape functions, primarily on the wind, although Cx has a not exactly small of 0.35. Layout is classic central engine, rear-wheel drive, very dynamic profile. However, it may be noted that the inspiration behind is the new McLaren MP4-12C (even if the design is different, ideas for discharges or stops are similar to the British supercar).
In the motorization, the French do not call to register electric motors, as did the CroatsRimac car. Conversely, Genty Akylone services based on a 4.8-liter V8, equipped with two turbochargers, so maximum output amounts to over 1000 hp and 1200 Nm maximum torque reached at only 3,000 rpm.
The gearbox is sequential with 7 speed, and the car benefits from a limited-slip differential. Therefore promises to be excellent performance: 0-100 km / h in 2.7 seconds, 0-200 km / h in 7.2 seconds, 0-300 km / h in 14 seconds, while top speed is 350 km / h and 1,000 meters are driven in only 16.6 seconds.
Genty Akylone still praise and a very good weight / power 1.1 kg / hp, thanks to the chassis piece of carbon and aluminum, bringing the total weight to 1,100 kg empty, while the distribution of axle loads is almost ideal 42% front and 58% on the back.
Unfortunately, for now we have no data on manufacturing cadence, or about the estimated price that will have to pay potential customers interested. So Veyron can stand still: Genty Akylone is still not a realistic rival.
The new Genty Akylone impresses by offering the entire package which is power, beauty, elegance and attitude. Remains to be seen what will happen, because this model was made in approx four years a team of many specialists from different fields.
