AL Autos at The 2019 New York International Auto Show (1/2)
Hello one and all! Welcome to the AL Autos booth here at the 2019 New York International Auto Show in wonderful New York! With us today, we have 2 cars to present to the public over the course of the next few days. For today, we have one of our peppy sports cars which we have been itching to show to the world!
The AL Autos Aranea! Time to have some fun!
RGSC2 Shown in AL Blue
Ever since our company started up, we’ve always dreamed of making a fun 2 door sporty convertible that would be incredibly fun to drive and available to all! So early on in our company history, we took on the challenge of making a fun two door sports convertible for the masses. We’ve gone through many trials of it such as the AL Autos Pacto released back at the 2017 Antiyita Motor Show and many other iterations which never made it past the testing phase or just never got released to the public, reason being, it didn’t really match up to our expectations. Now, we’ve decided to take on the challenge again, and here today, we have the results of our work, the Aranea. A lot of focus was put on how the Aranea will handle through the corners. For starters, we stuck on AL Road Sport tires that will hug the road. Next, we tuned the new semi-active AL Road Sport suspension setup to make sure that the car will hug the corners. Being one of our first front engine RWD vehicles, we wanted to make sure that we tamed the oversteer which usually sneaks in from time to time. Afterwards, the peppy engines were focused on. The Aranea comes with a choice of 3 engines. The first two are ALA made: a 1.5 L Turbocharged straight 4 producing 185 BHP and 149 lb-ft torque, and a 1.8 L Turbocharged Straight 4 producing 264 BHP and 193 lb-ft torque.

The third engine marks the return of our specialized tuning division, the Draconis Tuning Division (DTD for short), with a specially tuned 2.0 L Turbocharged Straight 4 producing 305.2 BHP and 216.1 lb-ft torque.
As standard, all engines are mated to either 5 or 6 speed manual transmissions. AL Tech Quickshift automatics are also available upon request (none, however, are available for test drive here at the auto show this year). No matter the trim, however, the Aranea aims to please drivers with a sporty feel and a super fun drive!
RGSC Trim shown in AL Neon Green
The Aranea has three interior trims unique to the three trims of the Aranea. Each of the three trims provide a sporty yet comfortable feel to occupants which set foot in the Aranea. The RGSC trim gets our ALStandard Comfort adjustable seats. The RGSC2 gets ALRoadSport adjustable bucket seats which hug the driver. Finally, the returning RGSC DTD gets specialized DTD bucket seats which hug the driver and provide astounding support. All trims come with inviting sporty interiors. The RGSC2 and RGSC DTD come standard with a 6” screen with our newly designed ALAutos-Infotainmen system. The RGSC DTD trim comes with a few added bells and whistles as well such as DTD exclusive gear lever and DTD inspired trim. The Aranea aims to provide a sporty experience whether you’re in urban areas, city streets, long stretches of highway, or twisty backroads!
