AL Autos Section (Release for Press Day 2)
Hello everyone and welcome to the AL Autos Section of the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show! We here at AL Autos are excited to bring a total of 13 individual cars including 8 brand new cars and 5 redesigned/refreshed cars! These cars are a product of AL Autos striving to improve wherever we can so we can bring some pretty exciting machines to the market. So, without further ado, here are the cars that we have brought with us this week! Enjoy!
AL Autos Cursus (Trim Shown: 460 S)
AL Autos decided to make a different sort of car. One that brings back open wheeled design. The Cursus was designed to allow that open wheel design to shine. In some cases, the Cursus is like a bullet with wings. We wanted to make sure that the car’s aerodynamics aren’t compromised. To make sure of this, the wheel arches over the front tires were made relatively thin, smooth, yet strong as possible, and there are just some minor body touch ups to make sure the air flows through like the fins found right behind the wheel arches. To liven up the car as well, we tweaked our sports car fascia a bit to make sure that it fits the car’s nature.
The Cursus features a no-nonsense 5.0 L Naturally Aspirated Flatplane V8 producing 460 HP. The engine is accompanied by a longitudinal AWD system, a 7 speed double clutch sequential gearbox, an electric LSD, 255F/265R AL Sport Compound Tires, designed specifically for the Cursus, Magnesium rims, vented disc brakes, and Double Wishbone F/Multilink R suspension. This allows for the Cursus to go from 0-62 MPH (0-100 KPH) in 2.9 seconds, achieve a top speed of 174.2 MPH (280.3 KPH), and clock a 1:15.2 on the Top Gear Test Track.
The Cursus has AL Autos’ ALDrivingProfile 2, a system that adjusts the car’s characteristics like electronic stability control, power delivery, steering sensitivity, and a couple other stats about the car so that the driver will always be able to drive the Cursus at its best. The driver can also set his own personal settings and save it as his own driving profile.
(To be released soon)
AL Autos Anguis (Trim Shown: 807 R)
Striking is it not. The Anguis was designed to provoke a sense of awe whenever looked at: The curves, the angles found in the fixtures, etc. In addition, to top it all off, AL Autos decided to put a t-top on the car because… well, why not?
The heart of this beast is a 5.7 L Twin Turbo Flatplane V8 churning out 807 HP. This is combined with a longitudinal AWD system, 7 speed double clutch sequential gearbox, double wishbone F/Multilink R suspension, an electric LSD, 295 F and R AL Sports Compound Tires, and vented disc brakes. This allows the Anguis to go from 0-62 MPH (0-100 KPH) in 2.6 seconds, achieve a top speed of 203.7 MPH (327.8 KPH), and clock a 1:13.4 on the Top Gear Test Track.
In the near future, AL Autos will possibly be making a lightened track ready version of this car along with a possible RWD I6 version of this car. Stay tuned
Fully Loaded (Shown): $106,000
Base Price: $89,482
AL Autos Ventus (Trim Shown: 950 R)
A slight departure from normal here at AL Autos, the Ventus
was designed to be insane to look at. The imposing almost psychopath look of the front end, the angles of produced by the rear end vents and grilles, and the different and oddly charming body style.
The heart of the Ventus is another 5.7 L Twin Turbo Flatplane V8 developed for this car churning out 950 HP. The engine is also accompanied by a carbon fiber monocoque chassis, a longitudinal AWD system, a 7 speed double clutch sequential gearbox, pushrod F and R suspension, an electric LSD, magnesium wheels, carbon ceramic brakes, an active wing, and cooling flaps. This allows the Ventus to go from 0-62 MPH (0-100 KPH) in 2.4 seconds, attain a top speed of 234.5 MPH (377.4 KPH), and clock a 1:11.3 on the Top Gear Test Track.
The Advanced Aerodynamics
AL Autos put some aerodynamic trickery on the Ventus. The cooling flaps found in the front vents are designed to open to allow extra air in when needed (mostly at high speeds) and then close when not needed. The wing is designed to move up and down depending on speed and deploys to allow the car to brake faster. The vents found on the top of the rear end of the car also deploy at high speeds to keep the Ventus stable while also allowing more air in to the engine. At low speeds, these retract.

Base Price: $215,009
AL Autos Rursus (Trims Shown: 343 Sv2 and 614 Sv2) (Debuted at the 2017 Antiyita International Motor Show)
AL Autos wanted to put refresh the look of the Rursus, our 2 door sports coupe, debuted at the Antiyita International Motor Show. We decided to go for a simpler, yet more aggressive look in the front: angled vents, geometric grilles, etc. The rear has also been simplified with our current vent/taillamp combination.
The Performance (614 Sv2)
AL Autos has put a new heart into the Rursus: A 3.5 L turbocharged I6 producing 614 HP. This is accompanied by a longitudinal RWD system, a 7 speed double clutch sequential gearbox, Double Wishbone F/Multilink R suspension, an electric LSD, 245F/265R AL Sport Compound Tires, and vented disc brakes. This allows for the Rursus 614 Sv2 to go from 0-62 mph (0-100 KPH) in 3.5 seconds, achieve a top speed of 205.7 MPH (331.0 KPH), and clock a 1:14.3 on the Top Gear Test Track.
The Performance (343 Sv2)
AL Autos put another brand new heart into the Rursus as promised during the 2017 Antiyita International Motor Show: A 2.5 L Turbocharged I4 producing 343 HP. The underpinnings are pretty much the same as the 614 Sv2 apart from 255 R AL Sport Compound tires, solid disc brakes, and a 6 speed manual transmission. This allows for the Rursus 343 Sv2 to go from 0-62 MPH (0-100 KPH) in 4.5 seconds, achieve a top speed of 175.7 MPH (282.8 KPH), and clock a 1:19.6 on the Top Gear Test Track.
