From Artega press: The renowned designer Henrik Fisker, who created the BMW Z8 and the Aston Martin Vantage, among other models, has created an unmistakable design with the length of a compact car (4.015 meters) and the width of a luxury limousine (1.88 meters). It is both powerful and appealing.
A combination of materials familiar from racing sports, namely an aluminum space frame, high-strength steel and alloys reinforced with carbon fiber, give the Artega®GT an unloaded weight of just 1285 kilograms in spite of the extensive standard equipment built into the vehicle. This makes the sports car one of the lightest in its class. The V6 engine has a cubic capacity of 3597 cubic centimeters and produces 300 horsepower (220 kW), resulting in a performance ratio of 4.28 kilograms per HP. The low weight-to-performance ratio and the state-of-the-art drive train ensure extreme agility and impressive driving performance. The car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds. Its highest speed is 270 kilometers per h our.
The midship concept and direct steering optimize driving pleasure. Average consumption according to EURO 5 standards is just 9.2 liters per 100 kilometers.
Artega has built a factory that produces individual vehicles with great care. One of its trademarks is the high percentage of parts produced in-house, including the chassis, wheel suspension, engine periphery and the fueling and exhaust systems. Each individual vehicle is put together in traditional handwork to meet the specifications of the customer. Highly skilled workers assemble the technical components, the body and the interior.
A front hood made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic and EU5 are standard on the Artega®GT. The model shown at the company’s Geneva exhibit also underscores the benefits of the in-house manufacturing concept, which offers the best potential for creating extraordinary, exclusive vehicles. For starters, there are no limits to the colors available. The Geneva Motor Show version, for example, is in Suzuka grey metallic with matching upholstery in two colors: the top of the instrument panel and the door trim moldings are upholstered in black leather, while the rest of the upholstery is red leather. Other sporty features include the air intakes and the hood with a visible carbon structure, which provide another clear indication of the uncompromising lightweight construction of the GT. The black wheels also underscore the sports car’s high performance.
The Artega will always remain an exclusive product. The factory in Delbrück will manufacture no more than 500 sports cars per year.
