Scuderi Engine to Make European Debut This Week at Engine Expo in Stuttgart
Scuderi Split-Cycle Engine Technology Gives Automakers New Internal Combustion Process
The cutaway model of the first Scuderi Engine prototype, unveiled to the global automotive engineering industry over a month ago in Detroit, will make its European debut at the Engine Expo taking place June 16-18 at the messe in Stuttgart, Germany.
The one-liter, naturally-aspirated gasoline prototype is expected to produce up to 80 percent fewer toxins than a typical internal combustion engine. When fully developed with its turbocharged and Air-Hybrid components, the engine is expected to achieve significant gains in fuel efficiency -- the most since the inception of the Otto cycle over 130 years ago.
The Scuderi Engine split-cycle design gives automotive OEMs an immediate solution for complying with higher emissions and efficiency standards without having to make large investments to modify current production processes.
"Since we introduced this concept and engine design three years ago, we have had overwhelming interest from the European automotive community. We are pleased to exhibit the prototype in this region and share this milestone with those who have been following our development," said Lutz Deyerling, Vice President of European Operations for the Scuderi Group. "We strongly encourage automakers to take advantage of the opportunity that the Scuderi Engine presents to make more fuel-efficient engines."
With assembly of the naturally-aspirated Scuderi Engine now complete, the Scuderi Group and its independent laboratory continue to work on the next prototypes. Completion of the turbocharged Scuderi Engine and the Scuderi Air-Hybrid are expected in 2010.
Based in West Springfield, Mass., USA, with offices in Frankfurt, Germany, the Scuderi Group is a research and development company focused on proliferating its technology through R&D and licensing. Its revolutionary Scuderi Engine technology, when fully developed, is expected to be the most significant improvement in engine efficiency in over 130 years. The Scuderi Group's global patent portfolio contains more than 200 patents including 72 issued in more than 50 countries. For more information call 1-413-439-0343 or visit www.ScuderiEngine.com.
