Innotech and Mercedes Benz Working on Newer Vehicles for 2014
|   Tuesday, July 30, 2013
Czech based car making company Innotech has unveiled their latest track vehicle, the Aspiron and the vehicle will be officially unveiled at the Good Wood Festival of Speed in the United Kingdom next week. Innotech is known worldwide for its ability and expertise in modifying the Chevrolet Corvette and the company says that the Aspiron is based to attract the Porsche 911 and SRT lovers.

Like the Caparo T1, the Aspiron is inspired by Formula One and as a result many of the design cues and mechanical components have been inspired by Formula One.
The car weighs just 760 kg including all components and is powered by a V8 engine designed by Chevrolet. The V8 blocks displace close to 500 – 800 BHP although a special ethanol powered version is also on the cards. This special version is expected to displace 1000 BHP although the mechanical specifications of the vehicle are yet to be unveiled.
Every engine block is mated to a six speed transmission system while the vehicle is based on a rear wheel platform. The car is composed mainly out of carbon fiber which is also used extensively on the interior as well. Ford's limited slip differential has also been used on the vehicle while the chassis is designed on the credentials of the advanced aluminum space frame technology.

Six point racing safety harnesses have been used while the base price of this car starts at £117,918 for the 500 BHP displacing LS3 vehicle. The higher end 6.3 liter 800 BHP displacing LS9 is priced at £161,445. The prices for the vehicle are standard considering their ability to perform and Innotech claims that their first venture promises to be inspiring.

Also revealed recently was the highly anticipated Mercedes Benz GLA and the vehicle was showcased with the least amount of camouflage. Although the styling on the vehicle is termed as exaggerated by some, most people feel that it is a continuation of the A Class. The latest images showcase the similarities with the A Class while mechanically this vehicle also bears resemblance to the Innotech Aspiron.

Although the GLA is not as aggressive as the concept turned out to be, the vehicles bear similarities. The wheel base for example has been increased over the concept and is at par with most SUVs from Mercedes Benz, although it is more rounded. The Range Rover Evoque, BMW X1 and the Audi Q3 will face a new rival in the form of the GLA. This vehicle is based on the new MFA platform and is designed on the A and B Class vehicles.

The GLA currently draw power from a 2.0 liter 335 BHP displacing turbo charged engine although Mercedes Benz plans on introducing a lower powered version of the vehicle soon. An all wheel drive train based vehicle is also expected to be introduced to the range while Mercedes Benz is also expected to introduce a hybrid power train later on, although nothing has been confirmed by industry officials as of now.
