For instance, the engine revved 20% higher than the existing DOHC/SOHC unit and thus had to resist forced 40% bigger.

History

During 1985 then President of Saminda , have a new objective to make 100 horsepower per liter without any help of turbochargers. In 1990 Takao Ikazuo so invented the i-VIC system , the first i-VIC was introduced in the KE Series , which manage to make 110hp per liter , It was not only powerful, but it also idled more smoothly and had no staring problems.

1990 Saminda CZ10 ‘‘Without Sponsorship Stickers’’


The 1990 Saminda CZ10 were Group C sports prototype racing cars built by Saminda for use in the World Sportscar Championship, All Japan Sports Prototype Championship, as well as the 24 Hours of Le Mans from 1990 to 1991 , Saminda entered Le Mans racing in 1966, just eight years after producing their first road car. They began development of the CZ10 in 1964 with their Japanese factory team. More startling was the fact that Saminda built their own engine and chassis, something only Pauche and Jequar of the other teams still running in 1964 had previously done. Saminda won their first race in 1970 24 Hour Le-Mans , This 1990 CZ10 was the last CZ10 ever built as Saminda decide to withdraw from all motorsport in 1991 to save cost , however the CZ10 is now displayed on Saminda Museum Hall in Japan. also it is probably the last V8 ever to be in a Saminda , as Saminda stated that they will not bulid any V8 passenger car , however Saminda still do bulid V8 for other companies

Saminda C7


The C7 is a full-size car sold under Saminda , Keeping in mind that the 2010 C7 clearly favors comfort above handling, this large car isn’t at all disappointing to drive. Provided the roads are relatively straight, the front-wheel-drive C7 has the goods, with the 278-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission providing strong yet smooth and quiet performance either from stoplights or for highway passing, with the transmission shifting almost undetectably. Handling surely isn’t a strong point, but the C7 is nothing like the comfort-oriented barges of yore—the suspension soaks up nearly every kind of bump, yet the body stays in check if you pitch the C7 into a sharper corner, showing plenty of poise. At 19 mpg city, 28 highway, the C7 fuel economy is quite good for a vehicle with this much space on offer. Chief Excuetive of American Saminda Motor Co , Josh Bryan said that ''Although the 2010 C7 is smaller in size compare to the older C7 but we promise that the 2010 C7 is better.
