Acura's 300-plus horsepower HSC (High-Performance Sports Concept) makes its domestic debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
The HSC is a design study combining the ultimate in supercar performance with the interior comfort and handling ease of a daily driver. It features a lightweight body, a compact yet powerful engine and a racing-inspired interior.
The High-Performance Sports Concept body is composed of carbon fiber panels over an all-aluminum unit body frame. Short overhangs and a 104.7-inch wheelbase maximize handling and agility. The HSC features a lightweight 3.5-liter V-6 engine located midship for optimum balance and superior handling. Shifting is accomplished through a unique dial shifter located on the center console or an F-1 style paddle shifter located on the steering wheel.
The HSC features a 4-wheel double wishbone suspension with six-piston caliper Brembo disc brakes on each wheel. Five-spoke forged aluminum alloy racing wheels are shod with 245/35ZR19 tires in front and 295/30ZR20 tires in the rear.
Airex T92 structural PET foam core material from 3A Composites was selected for the construction of the Agena Marin taxi catamaran.
Scigrip has expanded its agreement with Biesterfeld Spezialchemie to include France and the French territories in Northern Africa, with immediate effect.
The next Marine-i Discovery Room event will shine a spotlight on composite materials and the vital role they will play in the marine industry in future.
