Footnotes

  • Hand made in Switzerland, this 0.66-scale evocation of the 1927 Amilcar C6 is the last of 16 built. The prototype competed in the 'Little Big Mans' event at the Le Mans Classic in 2014 (photographs on file) following which 15 'production' cars were completed. The body is new and made entirely of aluminium. The chassis is steel, and the entire car is built to the original pattern. Reproduced at 0.66-scale by a sculptor, the 'Pegasus' radiator mascot was cast in brass and then chromium plated.
    The car is electrically powered, using a 48-volt, 1,000-Watt, brush-less motor, which drives the rear axle via a differential. Power is drawn from a high-capacity lithium-ion battery; charging is said to be easy and relatively fast. Top speed is 40km/h, and the car is stopped by drum brakes. To warn of its approach, it is equipped with an adjustable sounder replicating the noise made by an original Amilcar C6. For demonstrations, it is possible to operate the sounder without rotating the wheels. The seats are trimmed in best quality leather, while the two control pedals can be adjusted to suit drivers of different heights. Perfect for any collector's garage and said to behave perfectly on the racetrack, the car is sold with a book explaining how the 16 chassis were built.

    Châssis n°16

    •Reproduction précise de l'Amilcar C6 de 1927, à l'échelle 0,66
    •Carrosserie aluminium sur châssis acier. Sièges en cuir de la meilleure qualité
    •Moteur électrique
    •Générateur acoustique reproduisant le son de la véritable Amilcar C6
    •Pédalier réglable

    Cette reproduction à l'échelle 0,66 de l'Amilcar C6 de 1927, fabriquée à la main en Suisse, est la dernière des 16 à avoir été construites. Leur prototype a disputé le 'Little Big Mans' lors du Le Mans Classic de 2014 (photos dans le dossier), à la suite de quoi 15 voitures "de série" ont été produites. Sa carrosserie faite à la main est neuve, entièrement en aluminium, son châssis est en acier et la voiture tout entière est construite selon la définition d'origine. Le "Pégase" qui orne le radiateur a été reproduit par un sculpteur à l'échelle 0,66 et coulé en laiton, puis chromé.

    La voiture est équipée d'un moteur électrique sans balai de 1 000 watts sous 48 volts, qui entraîne les roues arrière via un différentiel, et est alimenté par une batterie lithium-ion de forte capacité, dont la recharge est annoncée comme facile et assez rapide. La voiture atteint une vitesse de 40 km/h ; elle est dotée de freins à tambours. Elle se fait remarquer par son générateur acoustique réglable, qui reproduit le son de la véritable Amilcar C6, et qui peut aussi être actionné alors que les roues ne tournent pas. Ses sièges sont garnis du cuir de la meilleure qualité, et ses deux pédales peuvent se régler en fonction des différentes tailles de conducteurs. Cette voiture est réputée avoir un comportement parfait sur circuit ; elle est vendue avec un livre retraçant la construction des 16 châssis. Elle est d'un intérêt particulier pour un collectionneur.
    Le plaisir de la voir et de l'entendre relève de l'enchantement !
