Roadster based on the Snowball: the Crimea? Our!
The prototype, built on the basis of Lada Kalina with a 106-horsepower engine and 5-speed manual gearbox, went to test run in three cities of Central Russia.
The current version is the second one. It took into consideration comments on the work of the suspension and transmission, as well as some structural deficiencies identified during the tests of the first prototype.
The dimensions of the “Crimea”:
- length 3905 mm
- width 1679 mm
- height 1217 mm
- wheelbase — 2470 mm
In the future, the Roadster will be equipped with 140-horsepower engine and automatic gearbox.
You may ask why the students need this? Of course, not only in order to learn how to disassemble and reassemble a domestic car, making any changes. The project aims to create youth cheap sports car fully assembled from Russian components. The estimated price of the Roadster series is about 650 000 rubles in prices of 2019.
The project team has already visited the Yaroslavl and Nizhny Novgorod. In the queue — Vladimir. Results of the tests will identify weak spots and to take into account when building the third prototype that meets all safety requirements and is optimized for serial production.
