This video has been provided from Marussia Motors Company in Russia. It is the first Russian Super Car Manufacturer ever and has created an outstanding concept with the Marussia B1 and B2 cars. The Marussia cars are powered by a Cosworth 3,5l V6 engines with an output of around 420hp.
KW is the official R&D and line production suspension partner for Marussia, and has developed for the complex push-rod axle construction a functional and unique solution. The entire strut housings are made out of high-tensile & ultra lightweight aluminum, the damping technology reflects the famous KW Variant 3, which is compression and rebound adjustable separately. The compression forces are controlled even with unique and patented by-pass valve technology which grants ultimate control and road handling and finally driving pleasure.
Due to the limited ground clearance of the Marussia car, KW designed and adapted the KW HLS 4 system, which is a hydraulic lift system on all 4 corners to lift the car in case of ground clearance problems, such as speed bumps, entering car parks, etc. Due to this fantastic option it makes such a super sport car to an daily driver even in big cities like Moscow.
The video is about the R&D work which was carried out at KW’s R&D works and also on the 7-Post-Rig dyno. The 7-Post-Rig dyno is a special vehicle dynamics simulation tool for R&D work to get the best setup according to customer requirements.
