ATS Automobili’s new division, ATS Corsa, has unveiled a new in-house developed track car. Powered by a Honda-sourced I4 2-liter turbo engine, the RR Turbo will generate 600hp at 8500rpm and 530Nm of torque with a flat curve from 4000 to 7000rpm.
The heart of the RR Turbo was reworked by ATS Corsa with a closed-deck construction, and is equipped with forged pistons, head with bespoke intake and exhaust manifolds and Garret turbine. The IC unit, which is managed by an Hondata ECU, is paired to a six-speed 3MO FTX sequential transmission with limited slip differential.
As is the case with Formula cars, the engine and the gearbox are linked together by a monoblock ergal bellhousing, which acts as a support for the suspension, dampers, wing mount and exhaust.
The RR Turbo has been engineered around a chromium molybdenum spaceframe chassis weighing only 40 kg (without roll-bar). The chassis’ tubing is welded to form a central tub-core which is paired with the FIA homologated roll-cage, giving high torsional rigidity and maximum safety.
Aside from the official technical partners such as Michelin Motorsport, Sicom, Nardi Personal, D-Factory and Dtales, technical suppliers such as Tractive Suspension, Teknogear, 3MO Performance, Atech and AIM also provided support to the development.
