Allow us to introduce you to Casey Putsch, a person who describes himself as an automotive designer, engineer, philanthropist, craftsman, artist, and racing driver. Briefly, a “modern-day renaissance man” – his phrases, not ours.
The person is at all times engaged on difficult initiatives on the Genius Storage and the most recent one to catch our eyes is the Omega Automotive, a extremely environment friendly, aerodynamic and recyclable idea automobile constructed from scratch to realize greater than 100 mpg (2.35 lt/100 km).
Whereas it wouldn’t be the primary automobile to be this economical (the Volkswagen XL1 was good for 260 mpg or 0.9 lt/100 km), the Omega Automotive can also be designed to go quick – extra notably, Dodge Viper quick. Sure, Casey hopes the Omega Automotive will out speed up his 1997 Viper GTS, reaching 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in lower than 4 seconds.
In addition to being extraordinarily economical and quick, the Omega Automotive has been designed to be sustainably manufactured with much less environmental influence by utilizing experimental supplies. In response to Casey and his crew shaped of scholars, as soon as testing is baselined they are going to tune the automobile for minimal emissions and get all of the methods prepared for tuning and reaching efficiency figures.
For now, the workforce has shared movies by which we will see the Omega Automotive intimately, together with footage of it being pushed on public roads. Certain, its VW Beetle-sourced 2.0-liter TDI diesel engine doesn’t sound pretty much as good because the Viper’s V10, however the Omega Automotive appears to speed up fairly rapidly and can also be able to burnouts – take that, VW XL1!
After every part is sorted out, the builders will launch the Omega Automotive’s closing specs and Putsch will take it on a tour of the USA. Take a look at the movies to study extra about this exceptional prototype which has been sculpted and constructed from the bottom up utterly by hand in a workshop.
