Presents a racing coupe with a 600-horsepower Honda engineSeptember 18, 2019
Hill Clim Track Car Built by Italian ATS Automobili
The Italian company ATS Automobili, founded in 2011, introduced the track supercar RR Turbo. The coupe is designed and built on its own by the newly formed ATS Corsa and homologated in accordance with the technical requirements of the Italian Motorsport Federation ACI Sport and FIA.
ATS RR Turbo is positioned as a track car for private teams and riders who are looking for an affordable car, but with high-level components. Dvuhdverka has an admission to all championships of class GT and Challenge, including the German national racing series VLN, as well as European competitions in high-speed climbing. The price of the car is 110 thousand euros, excluding taxes.
The basis of the RR Turbo is a chassis with a spatial frame made of chrome-molybdenum steel, which weighs 40 kilograms without a safety cage. Tubular structural elements are welded in the form of a core, providing high rigidity and safety. Levers of push-rod type of suspension, shock absorbers, wing support and exhaust are fixed as on sport prototypes – to the monoblock “bell” of aluminum alloy 7075.
The track car is driven by a two-liter Honda turbo engine from Civic Type R. The unit has been seriously modified: it has forged pistons, a cylinder head with original intake and exhaust manifold, a Garrett turbine and a Hondata control unit. The return is 600 horsepower and 630 Nm of torque.
The thrust is fed to the rear axle through a six-speed 3MO FTX sequencer with paddle shifters and a limited slip differential. The base brakes are steel discs (335 millimeters in the front and 305 millimeters in the rear) with Brembo four-piston calipers, but 350 mm carbon-ceramic rotors and ATS-Sicom monoblock calipers are available for a surcharge
Well-known companies such as Michelin Motorsport, Sicom, Nardi Personal, D-Factory and Dtale helped build the ATS Corsa, and Tractive Suspension, Teknogear, 3MO Performance, Atech, and AIM were the component suppliers. The first cars buyers will receive next spring.
