Engineering the Acabion GTBO

The GTBO has a good balance of aerodynamics and power — a for speed.

As we’ve seen so the Acabion GTBO is more than car. It stands to then that the Acabion need a pretty stout engine, right? Well exactly what’s buried inside the inner workings of the canopy and chassis.

To build a motorbike with ideas of at speeds in excess of 300 mph (482.8 Dr. Maskus looked no further the Holy Grail of motorcycles, the Hayabusa, for the power plant. At 185 the stock Hayabusa motor is for Suzuki to propel the superbike to approaching 200 mph (321.9 km/h).

But the Acabion pushes the limits further and the street fighter a heavily modified 1300 (1.3-liter) turbo-charged Hayabusa that puts out 354 bhp. claims the engine can be tuned to put out than 700 bhp.

Acabion also claims the consumes half as much as a high-tech diesel compact car cruising at 110 mph (177 km/h); is of traveling 280 mph (450.6 km/h) at half throttle; can accelerate 180 mph to 280 mph (289.7 km/h to 450.6 in just 10 seconds and can reach a top of 342 mph (550.4 km/h). Below is a of the Acabion GTBO specifications. Are claims even possible?

a look at the numbers and you decide.

To build a car for speed, engineers and look at the balance of weight, and power. The specifications suggest these three elements together in perfect harmony and may the Acabion to reach such speeds. With a nearly drag coefficient of .14, and only 661.5 lbs. kg), the Acabion blends aerodynamics and feather-like weight.

these engineering feats a 354 bhp engine and you get a recipe for speed.

Aerodynamics certainly aid in fuel too as the miniscule drag coefficient the GTBO can cruise at speed using hardly any throttle The seating position also a part as the same vehicle in a configuration would use twice as fuel. Some of the technical suggests amazing fuel

To cruise at 100 mph (160.9 km/h), you only need to use 1.7 percent of the and would get 98.79 mpg (42 km/l). If you in a real hurry and you decided to at 250 mph (402.3 km/h), you would get a very reasonable 24.7 mpg km/l) [source: Swissinfo ].

The Acabion’s high-speed and excellent economy sound great, but can you drive a vehicle like on the highway? How much does an cost, anyway? And how long it take to build if you were to one?
