2019 Arrowhead AVR GTE
Possible for Arrowhead motorsport to acquire title sponser to become Petronas-Arrowhead Motorsport competing in V8 Supercars, WEC, IMSA and The Blancpain series
The car is meant to replace the light and nimble Arrowhead Vyil, however the AVR is a whole 100mm wider and 430mm longer complimenting the wheelbase with an inrcease of 300mm. This helped to increase the stability of the car which ia essential in the GTE category. The GTE version however is more wider and come with an array of Aerodynamic features. Extra care was taken to ensure the rear tyre wake was used effectively by the diffuser
Same for the front tyres as fixtures allow the air to escape from within the front wheel arches in an orderly manner contrary to the competition. Also notice the front Canards, especially flow condtioner on top of the wheel arches.
The car uses the 5.0L V8 developed from the V8 supercars category, instead of the 3.0-4.0L Striaght-6 devloped for the AVR production spec. More details to be revealed during the launch of the production spec.
Talks of acquiring Petronas sponser is ongoing amidst introduction of the AVR GTE and future introduction of the LavL Skyerl GT3. The possibly new V8 Supercar regulations allowing Turbo4’s and V6’S has caused delays as pressure from Mercedes’s own, but now defunct V8 Supercar is slowing the deal down.
Production Model to be revealed soon
