New Performance Coupe!

Hello all! This post will feature a brand new car that I am relatively excited to show you!

Here is AL Autos’ brilliant sports coupe!

The AL Autos Volatilis (Trim Shown: 734 S)

The Body

AL Autos wanted to make the Volatilis as sports like as possible, almost intimidating. To accomplish this, we gave the Volatilis a healthy dose of sharp angles (especially in the headlamps), a new fascia design, AL Autos’ brand new taillight design, spoilers to suit the trim, and many other minute details.

The Performance

In this specific trim model, the 734 S, AL Autos has stuffed under hood a 5.5 L Twin Turbo Flatplane V8 churning out 734 HP. In addition, this specific trim comes with a 7 speed double clutch sequential transmission, electric LSD, longitudinal RWD system, 275F/285R AL sport compound tires, and a Double Wishbone (F)/Multilink ® suspension system. All in all, this specific model can go from 0-62 MPH in 3.6 seconds, achieve a top speed of 207.4 MPH (333.8 KPH), and achieve a 1:14.7 on the Top Gear Test Track.

AL Autos has good variety of trims to suit your desires ranging from the 406 S to the 922 R:

The 406 S

0-62 MPH: 4.5 seconds
Top Speed: 185.7 MPH (298.9 KPH)

AL Autos Release! The All New 2019 AL Autos Aranea

Welcome to the brand new AL Autos Aranea, our 2 door convertible sports car. The Aranea is currently one of the newest sports cars to enter our showrooms. Designed for driving pleasure, the Aranea introduces a new age of AL Autos sports cars. Our aim for the Aranea and, for future sports cars, was to lessen the cost of owning our models while hopefully improving the way our cars drive. The Aranea is the embodiment of a lot of tinkering and we here at AL Autos feel that it is ready to release to the public.

Very premium and futuristic design!

You’ll likely get much better fuel economy by using 4v per cylinder and VVL, as opposed to 5 valves.


#42

@Watermelon3878

Thanks for the compliments and constructive criticism/advice! TBH I’ve been meaning to experiment with VVL and not using 5 valves per cylinder but I haven’t gotten around to it. Knowing this, hopefully I will remember your advice when I make the next model year… or other economy cars :slight_smile:

Thanks again!


#43

If I remember correctly the last engine with five-valve heads was discontinued in 2006. So there are valid reasons why this setup is no longer used.


#44

Of are talking about VAG engines, was because the injection sistem dont fit with 5valves


#45

Having two different cam profiles is much more advantageous, although pre-VVL there were no disadvantages to 5v engines.


#46

@Watermelon3878

So I tested your suggestion on my engines and I got some werid results.

Here’s how the experiment went down:

I recorded all measurements and tuning variables on the old engine.

I then created a new engine with the exact same measurements and tuning as the old engine but changed the valve #/cyl to 4 and added VVL

I then fiddled with VVL only to match the old power and torque band as best as I could.

I then re-tuned all the other parts (transmission, suspension, etc) as I usually would.

In the end, I got these results:

Old -> Experimental

224.3 HP @ 6900 RPM -> 226 BHP @ 7000 RPM

191.3 lb-ft @ 4300 RPM -> 189 lb-ft @ 4000 RPM

27.5 MPG -> 26.4 MPG

Now my original intentions were NOT to prove you wrong (as I thought you had a valid point), but to simply see what would happen if I took on your advice. Is there something I’m missing w/ regards to tuning with the new setup?

P.S: I re-tuned the Turbos the match the power and torque band I had originally had and I still only got up to 26.6 MPG as opposed to the original 27.5 MPG.


#47

With VVL the best way to tune is low cam profile (35-50) and high VVL profile (>80 if you’re going for performance 60-80 otherwise) for an optimal combo of efficiency and power.

However this kind of difference can cause a torque valley similar to what’s seen in BRZ’s


#48

I see. Thanks for the insight! I will keep this in mind next time I’m experimenting with VVL profile!
