Calling for speed, the modern REUGE chassis strikes with dynamic curves and its sharp design. Made entirely of aluminium, the chassis is sprayed with vivid colors by a coachbuilder just like on race cars. The colors refer to the competing nations from the heydays: red for Italy, blue for France, green for the UK and yellow for Belgium.
To look like a real sports car, REUGE applies two independent symmetric movements in an automaton, inspired by the 16-cylinder powerhouse of the Auto Union series from the 1930s. The air inlet on each side of the sports car hosts another moving part, the flying wheels. Their mission this time is not to cool the engine, but to regulate the rotation of each cylinder for the right music speed.
Being a mechanical automaton, the energy required to operate the movements is manually generated with a carbon-coated steel winding key. The two independent movements have two barrels situated in the cockpit and their mainsprings can be wound up with the key through the two exhaust pipes. Are you ready for a musical ride ?
