Default JC Vurig + JC Vurig R

Tuesday, September 13, 2005: The Vurig sparks a new flame, the first car from the new automotive company JC. The car is a back-to-roots vehicle for those who love to drive; nothing more than is needed for a visceral and emotional driving experience.

Sharp Style Emphasizes Sporting Nature
The Vurig boasts a sporty yet refined look that not only looks ready to tackle any corner that dares approach but also the trendiest nightclub in style. Boasting a 120.1 inch wheelbase yet a 170 inch total length, the Vurig has wheels that are pushed to the very corners of a BMW 3-series sized car, emphasized with large five-spoke 18" wheels. The Vurig looks fast, with a T-shaped grille up front, sweeping double-upward line on the side and a swept-back hatchback profile, sitting on wide and powerful rear fender flares. The look ends in a cut-off rear end with an integrated lip-spoiler.

Performance as Number One
JC and the Vurig stand for one thing: performance. The Vurig was built for performance and there is no denying that once you strap into the deep alcantara-lined bucket seats and wrap your hands around the thick steering wheel. Power comes from a 3.3.L inline-6 engine, mounted in an east-west configuration. This is possible because several engine-mounted components, such as teh battery, are now mounted in the trunk, benefitting weight displacement. The 3.3.L is the only engine available with the Vurig, and it pumps out 280 horsepower and 280 ft. lb of torque through an advanced all-wheel-drive system, with a 30/70 front/rear power split. Power runs through a slick-shifting Honda-sourced six-speed manual, or a Getrag six-speed automatic with paddle shifters. No additional weight has been wasted, and the Vurig's revolutionary aluminum composite manufacturing process makes for a stiffer yet dramatically lighter frame: the car weighs 3230 pounds, even with the all-wheel drive system. This makes for a car that can romp from 0-60 mph in 5.4 seconds, and slices through the slaloms at remarkable speed.

Comfort Still a Priority
The day to day grind is not all racetrack; JC knows a car must behave just as well on the road as on the racetrack. With that in mind, the Vurig has a suspension that is tight yet supple on the city bumps. Inside, deep leather and alcantara buckets surround the driver, and are sourced directly from Recaro. The interior is comfortable yet no-nonsense: simple A/C and radio controls facing the driver, and no extraneous knobs to deal with. The driver is faced with an easy to read, center-mounted tachometer, with a speedometer and various gauges flanking its sides.

The Vurig will prove to be a far more refined option to the ricey Mitsubishi Lancers and Subaru STi's and a faster, more focused option to the BMW 3-series, Infiniti G35, and Lexus IS350. It shall fill this hole in the marketplace, an up-and-rising's dream compromise, when it hits shores this winter, base pricing at around $35,000.

JC Vurig R: blinding speed and world-conquering ability, poised to overtake the WRC next season.

The JC Vurig R is a detuned homologation version of the Vurig WRC vehicle primed to take over the WRC stage next season. The vehicle is not your ordinary Vurig: it boasts wider fender flares, a new front facia, a deep hood-mounted intercooler intake, extensive underbody airflow management, a race-tuned suspension, and various carbon-fiber, in the front fenders, wing, roof, and rear fenders. the Vurig R has a mad body kit with large scoops up front to cool the massive Brembo brakes, and an air-evacuation chamber sits at the back of the front fender to let hot air out. the large Brembo brakes hide behind Vurig R-specific 19" Volk 10-spoke rims. Suspension components are made of lighter, stiffer yet thinner aluminum. The engine is the standard Vurig's inline 6 with two cylinders lopped off and two turbos added on. The result is a 2.0.l twin-turbocharged I-4, producing 320 horsepower to all four wheels. The interior gets racy, too, with deeper carbon-fiber-backed Recaro buckets and a thicker steering wheel, with a new tachometer that reads up to 10 and a speedometer that reads up to 180 mph. Put together, the Vurig R is able to run with the true sports cars, with a 0-60 time of 4.5 seconds, due to a combination of more horses, torque, and lighter weight.

The Vurig R is one for the true racers, and will start its limited production run next Spring for a price of around $45,000, a true bargain for a car of this caliber and speed.

knihc on the production model the perspective is a bit flawed, and the huge wheels throws the design off. The Vurig R is BADA$$!!!

it looks great. i really like the design itself, but ;ike axis said the perspective is off around the front on the vurig and the vurig R (i love the name by the way); mainly, the area around the bottom seems too flat. but the rear 3/4 of the vurig R is spectacular are you going to do an interior view?

p.s. is there a particular country that JC is supposed to be from?

it's nothing major and doesnt detract from the quality of the design, it's just that the bottom area of the bumper doesn't seem to curve enough.

Nice car dude. I love it. The taillights are the coolest rendition of altezzas I have ever seen. The styling is right on in my book. Awesome sketch. Looks like it could be a new Mitsubishi Evo or something. Awesome job!
