The concept car Holden Time Attack Concept received graphene batteries and a body with a nanocomposite coating
Australian manufacturer Holden, part of the concern General Motors, presented a virtual hypercar Time Attack Concept. Racing dvuhdverka developed by own units of GM Holden Design and Engineering in honor of the 50th anniversary of the first victory of the brand in the 1000-kilometer race Bathurst.
Concept car Holden Time Attack is completely created in a virtual environment. According to the chief designer of the company Richard Ferlazzo, modern technologies have changed the process of designing cars, and this hypercar, in fact, is a digital advertising of the capabilities of his team. With the participation of the Ferlazzo engineering unit, they managed to create the most detailed and thoughtful model, which later, with the help of visualizers, drove along the Australian Mount Panorama Circuit circuit.
According to the engineers, the Holden Time Attack racing will be built around a carbon monocoque with a honeycomb core made of cellulose, integrated deformation zones and a protective cocoon. The body of electro-hypercar is made of carbon-Kevlar panels with polycarbonate-graphene nanocomposite coating. The bottom will be made completely flat: there will be four tunnels for the passage of air, which will bend upward in the back, creating the effect of the Venturi tube and reducing aerodynamic drag.
The hypercar will be equipped with four 250-kilowatt electric motors with individual three-speed automatic transmission. The total power of the power plant will be one megawatt (1360 horsepower) and 3240 Nm of torque. To the 100 km/h Holden Time Attack can accelerate in 1.25 seconds, and its maximum speed will be 480 kilometers per hour.
Electric motors will be powered by a 25 kilowatt-hour graphene battery. It supports connection to 1000-kilowatt charges and is fully filled in 90 seconds.
Holden Time Attack will receive carbon-carbon brakes, active suspension with hydraulic actuators, programmable ride height, protection against tipping and hitting when braking, a complex of active aerodynamics with a moving rear wing and wheel fairing, matrix headlights, a telemetry system and augmented reality helmet.
