Development of ultra-light record-breaking automobile

One of the directions of student design and process bureau Delta is development of ultra-light efficient automobile for participation in Shell Eco-marathon.

The event's history stretches back over seventy years. In 1939, a group of Shell scientists based in a research laboratory in Wood River, Illinois, USA, had a friendly bet to see who could drive their own car furthest on one gallon of fuel. The Eco-Marathon is an annual competition sponsored by Shell, in which participants build special vehicles to achieve the highest possible fuel efficiency. The Eco-Marathon is held around the world with events in Finland, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Japan, and the USA. The event also took place in the UK until 2010.

The events are entered by a range of participants from enthusiastic amateurs to university teams and major motor manufacturers with a variety of designs.

Initial data for design:

  • weight – 30 kg;
  • capacity – 1 person.;
  • max. speed – 60 km/h;
  • length – 3 m;
  • width – 0,968 m.
