At the base of the Federal Institute of Industrial Property, patent images of a car appeared, which in the documents are called “National Roadster”. Under this name hides the already famous roadster “Crimea”. The renderings show the third version of the model’s appearance.
It is quite difficult to find out “Crimea” on new images at first glance – the model now has the features of an Audi TT and R8. However, based on the fact that the owner patent is the “Youth Design Bureau”, and in the list of authors of the application in the first place is the professor of the “piston engines” department of Bauman Moscow State Technical University Dmitry Onishchenko, the images are of a domestic development roadster.
The applicant’s location also contains the address of Bauman Moscow State Technical University. At the same time, judging by the information on the FIPS website, it was registered a year ago on the same day as the application was filed, December 19, 2018. However, the images were published only now.
The first generation of the Crimea roadster was presented at the end of June 2016. It was built by students of MSTU named after Bauman together with the design bureau “Formula Student”, the presentation was held on the territory of the Crimean Peninsula. The debut modification was based on a spatial tubular frame, and body panels were made of composite materials.
In September 2019, the second generation of the model was introduced. The new “Crimea” has a supporting structure made of sheet metal, made using laser cutting. Also, the roadster received a hydraulic clutch and an upgraded suspension.
Both prototypes are built on the basis of Lada Kalina – the creators borrowed the power plant from it. Both versions of the roadster are equipped with a 1.6-liter engine, which is slightly modified, as a result of which the power increased to 140 forces. Paired with him is a five-speed “mechanics”.
The creators want to establish mass production of a car in the Crimea. According to the plan, three versions should enter the market: the most affordable basic, medium, and high-audience-oriented top versions. The starting price, according to preliminary estimates, should be 650-700 thousand rubles.
