    Artega GT (XCLUSIV+++)

    The Artega® GT. Germany’s alternative to the sports car establishment.

    The new car brand Artega® is set to unveil a close-to-production prototype of its debut model.
    Artega®’s aim is the development and production of small-series sports cars that break the mould.
    Artega® was the brainchild of engineers in the development department at paragon, the globally
    successful electronics supplier based in Delbrück, in the German state of North Rhine Westphalia.
    The company’s mission statement commits it to providing a convincing and sustained demonstration
    of both all-round automotive expertise and a passion for sporty cars.

    Artega® and the Artega® GT represent a new beginning, with no brief to bring a historical brand back
    to life and no nostalgia agenda. The challenging, international setting of the Geneva Motor Show
    makes this a fitting venue for the first public unveiling of both brand and car.


     


    The new Artega® GT combines the emotional appeal of a high-performance sports car with the
    defining attributes of a sports tourer. The development of the car hinged on four priorities:

    • A distinctive design language. Renowned designer Henrik Fisker has created proportions with
    an unprecedented purity: broad, flat and compact. Given its restricted dimensions, an interior
    brimming with efficiency comes as something of a surprise. There is room inside the car not just
    for two adults, but also their luggage – and even a child seat can be integrated as an option.

    • Agility, driving dynamics and safety. The key parameters in the development of the Artega® GT
    were lightweight construction and rigidity. A generously sized aluminium space frame teams up
    with a body made from carbon fibre-reinforced composite materials to ensure an impressive
    power-to-weight ratio. High-quality components sourced from the Volkswagen Group and a
    rear-engined arrangement make for top-class performance.The V6 powerplant with a direct-shift
    gearbox and a specially developed inverting stage was built into a compact module made from
    high-strength steel tubing. Active driving dynamics aids are an integral element of the GT, while
    exceptionally effective crash boxes protect the occupants in the event of an accident.

    • Touring suitability. The development engineers attached great importance to creating an occupant-
    oriented package. A wide variety of stowage areas and two luggage compartments exceed
    the usual boundaries for a car with these dimensions. The key to this extraordinary spaciousness
    was the decision to mount the engine horizontally in the rear of the car.

    • Controls. The expertise of the electronics specialists at paragon opened the door to a wide range
    of innovative control and driver information systems.With its groundbreaking new sensor switch
    panels and the unique dual-indicator speedometer/rev counter instrument, paragon’s all-new
    interior ambience represents a significant standout feature of the new Artega® GT.

    By the end of 2007 a state-of-the-art production facility will be constructed in Delbrück for the
    Artega® GT and other potential models.The new location will bring together component manufacturing,
    final assembly and a brand and sales centre, allowing the brand to meet the broadest possible
    range of customer specifications.

    The new Artega® GT is no show car. It documents the nascent brand’s intention to lay down a
    range of models which are designed for the long term and can secure it a place alongside the major
    manufacturers. The target group for these small-volume cars is a select band of enthusiasts who
    value ideas which step outside the norm and are therefore unlikely to be satisfied by large-series
    models.

    Artega® aims to enrich the sports car world rather than providing extra competition.
