Grand touring just got a little more grand
Tradition and innovation. In car design, it is often the case that these two words can pose one of the greatest problems. How can one truly be completely innovative, while also keeping up with tradition? How can one stay true to their traditions while also forging ahead and creating something new and different? It is quite often the case that, as a designer, you must favor one over the other.
Here at Konig, however, our designers and engineers have struck a perfect harmony between the two juxtapositions. This balance takes shape in the new 1992 AV-Class, the newest model in the long line of the ultimate grand-tourers.
Surely a car as beautiful as the new AV-Class is can not possibly perform well.
What if we told you it did?
The Konig AV600 with it’s 6L V12 has a 0-100 km/h time of 5.95 seconds. Of course, straight line speed is not everything. What of it’s handling?
The AV600 handles corners and turns with ease. Effortlessly gliding over the road with the utmost in confidence, stability, and of course, comfort. This is thanks in part to the AV-Class’ newly designed hydropneumatic suspension (LBC). As you wind the AV-Class through turns, the car’s multiple computers monitor every single adjustment and angle, which allows the AV-Class to maintain its remarkable ride comfort, and stay virtually level through even the most extreme of turns.
However, should you want to feel those turns just a bit more, the suspension is electronically adjustable via a button located inside, allowing the driver to change the suspension setting at every whim.
A designer is only as good as the tools they use, and of course how they use them. Luckily for Konig, we have access to not only the newest and most powerful computer software in the industry, we also have the most well trained designers in the industry.
As you look at the new AV-Class, your eye will undoubtedly be drawn to the smooth sculpted lines that effortlessly flow rearward. This smooth look is due, in part, to those aforementioned computer systems, which has allowed us to achieve a drag coefficient of 0.31. Take note, also, of the tight and even panel gaps, and the overall well constructed look of the new AV-Class. Partly responsible is the extensive use of high-tech robots to achieve fit and finish that previously would not have been possible. Humans, however, still have final say, and before you are able to judge the quality for yourself, our team of highly skilled quality assurance experts go over every single car at nearly every step to ensure Konig’s standard of quality is strictly met.
This dedication to quality naturally continues inside. Every singly interior piece is created to tight tolerances, and is fitted perfectly. Before any car leaves our factory, they are put through hundreds of tests to ensure fit and finish, but also material durability so that as the vehicle ages, the build quality doesn’t. Which means you can enjoy the rich and supple calfskin leather, and real burled walnut veneer for longer than any other car on the road.
Surely, all this build quality and luxury must come at a hefty price?
Actually, the new AV-Class is quite competitively priced. Prices start at $75,000, and that includes a 10-year, 100,000 mile warranty, and access to Konig Mo-life for one year, a customer assurance program that includes road side service.
In all, the new AV-Class is almost underpriced for the quality and conviences you are getting.
Here at Konig we strive to create a vehicle that not only satisfies our demands, but satisfies yours as well. The new AV-Class is sure to do this, and beyond.
