<B>Tuesday, September 13, 2005</B>: 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.<p> <B>Sharp Style Emphasizes Sporting Nature</B> <br>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.<p> <B>Performance as Number One</B> <br>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.<p> <B>Comfort Still a Priority</B> <br>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.<p>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.<p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v402/spamthechan/img014.jpg" BORDER="0"><p> <B>JC Vurig R</B>: blinding speed and world-conquering ability, poised to overtake the WRC next season.<p>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.<p>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.<p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v402/spamthechan/img015.jpg" BORDER="0"><BR><BR>

knihc on the production model the perspective is a bit flawed, and the huge wheels throws the design off. The Vurig R is BADA$$!!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

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 <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/icondrool.gif" BORDER="0"> are you going to do an interior view?<p>p.s. is there a particular country that JC is supposed to be from?

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!

I've been wanting to redraw the Vurig for a while now. The original never came out quite how I wanted it to, and I figured I'd give it another go. These drawings were a bit too small for me to give them details like the last Voltaire drawing I did, but overall they are closer to what I had in mind. Enjoy!<p><B>Vurig Powers Into 2nd Model Year With Minimal Changes</B> <p>In its second year as a car manufacturer, fledging company JC has seen a marvelous year. The Vurig was the company's vanguard, but it was heralded by a plethora of stunning concepts, such as the Volant and the SpeedCell, not to mention the unveiling of the next JC vehicle, the powerful and stunning Voltaire.<p>The car that brought JC into the spotlight powers on 2007 largely unchanged. It will enjoy a base price drop, decontenting and repackaging. The base price drops from $35,000 to a deal-breaker $31,000. The base car now comes with the eight-spoke 17" wheels pictured on the bottom car (five spoke 18" wheels are available). Other items which have become optional to drive the base price down are such luxuries such as full-leather seats (an alcantara/leatherette combination is standard), power seats, sunroof, and other assorted items (Xenon headlamps are still standard). A new option for the Vurig is a state of the art navigation system. The base Vurig will still come with the amazing 3.3L 280 hp engine and stellar AWD. Also, a new Sports Package is available, with lightweight 19" five-spoke wheels (G-Games, provided by Volk, pictured in the top vehicle), brakes from the Vurig R, a race-tuned sports suspension, a very subtle front and rear spoiler, more supportive seats and 20 more horsepower (up to 300). The sports package will cost $5000 more than the base vehicle, effectively making the sports package the same price as last year's base model (trading sunroof, power seats, and leather for more power).<p>The price drop and repackaging make the Vurig a more attractive choice in the highly competitive sports sedan game than ever.<p> <IMG SRC="http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/28/untitled1rm7.jpg" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

SV does it, knihc2008 does it and I do it. It makes it seem more realistic and most members gere actually favour that. But it's just one man's opinion. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">

It's something that we do a lot over here at CSS. I don't like to present my designs as just shells or lines on a paper; I like to see them take shape as a real car, with purpose and with the intent of it being a real car, or a real concept car. I think it gives them more substance and explanation. I want you guys to know what I think was wrong with my design when I first drew it a year ago, and what I think I did wrong with the finer points of the vehicle, like the wheels, the pricing, the pacakaging, and the specs. Form always follows function; you can't present a design without telling the audience the function it performs.
