Abstract:
The AVL Spectros engine is a version of a potential engine family concept and an example of lightweight and modular design. The model shown and described in detail is a powerful V8 spark-ignited engine developed for the sporty limousine called I.DE.A One.The design objectives were high power density, compact overall dimensions and enhanced efficiency.These objectives have been achieved by means of downsizing, lightweight design, direct injection with exhaust gas turbo-charging and modular heat management system.One of the design targets was to match the design of the engine compartment with the outer appearance of the I.DE.A One vehicle.This was achieved by the integration of all tubes and cables in modules and the conscious avoidance of covers.The starter-alternator concept allows almost all secondary systems to be powered electrically and thus to omit any auxiliary belt drives.
