Microchip Brain - Sportscar Heart - Swiss Spirit
Who says that a sports car can’t be comfortable? Or that high performance can’t also be practical? And how about having a state-of-the-art, smart car at an affordable price point?
It isn’t science fiction - it’s real life. With the new Helvetia 540S, you don’t have to compromise on anything. Based on our Uniquely Swiss flagship sedan, this car features the sharp design and meticulous engineering of its mainline cousins, all while dusting off some of the world’s fastest sports cars.
Is 150 MPH and 0-60 in under 7 seconds fast enough for you? Thanks to its turbocharged 5-cylinder engine, you get the performance and smoothness of a 6-cylinder with the quietness and efficiency of a 4-cylinder. With an aerodynamics package inspired by the fighter jets in the Helvetia’s home town of Emmen, this sedan merely sips fuel compared to its gas-chugging competitors. Rounding out the exceptional driving experience is engine electronic control, all-wheel drive, trip computer, variable assist power steering, and even ABS, all possible thanks to one of the most electronically “intelligent” sedan designs on the road.
Slipping into the front seat, both new and experienced drivers will recognize the ergonomic Helvetia interior in the 540S, updated for the 1988 facelift. Derived from the latest in combat aircraft design, the Helvetia cockpit fuses high-tech and comfort like almost no other. A warm, inviting, roomy interior with 3 passenger seats brings to mind the other Helvetia models, but careful differences in style and lightweight materials will remind everyone that this is a full-fledged sports car. Would you also believe that its extremely safe? The driver-side airbag is just one clue to the advanced active and passive safety features engineered into this sedan.
If you are still undecided about this make, then think about this this. Our competitors will charge you upwards of $50,000 for a machine without all of these features. But the Helvetia 540S pictured here? It goes for just under $34,000.
Now, wouldn’t you like to feel it yourself? All that’s left between you and a test drive is a trip to your nearest dealer.
And remember - the Helvetia 540S isn’t just a sports sedan. It is a true Swiss car.
