In the end 1970 Federal ministry has begun development of new technologies and carrying out of researches, within the limits of the innovative project Â«Auto 2000Â». Some manufacturers of cars participated in this project. The then the primary objective of the project consist in that the weight of the car made no more than 2150 kg, and expense of fuel did not exceed 9,5 liters on 100 kilometers. Also, the car should contain in it 4 passengers and have carrying capacity not less than 400 kg. The car Â«Mercedes-benz auto 2000Â» which has satisfied all requirements of the project Â«Auto 2000Â» was possible to create companies Â«Mercedes-BenzÂ». For the first time the car has been presented to general public per 1981 on a motor show in Frankfurt.
Â«Mercedes-benz auto 2000Â» it is possible to carry to the basic advantages of the car: high parameters of durability of operation, a possibility it is easy to carry out repair work, it is safe for an environment. Also the car differs high parameters of controllability and maneuverability.
The main subject matter of a motor show in Frankfurt consist in creation of safe conditions for passengers and the driver, but the main thing is the concept of preservation of the environment. The car Â«Mercedes-benz auto 2000Â» was capable to solve these problems.
The body of the car is executed on the basis of model Â«W126Â». Also designers significantly had been modified a back part of the car which now can be met on many modern cars. The body of the car differs low parameters of resistance to a counter stream of air. The factor of aerodynamics makes 0,28.
Designers have created some modifications of the engine for the given car. On the car was established the diesel 6 cylinder engine in volume of 3,3 liters. Expense of fuel for such power unit makes 7,5 liters on 100 kilometers of a way at speed of 120 kilometers at an o'clock.
It is necessary to carry to the basic advantages of the engine of new generation: low parameters of environmental pollution, insignificant weight, the compact sizes of the power unit, high parameters of a twisting instant and absence of water cooling. The given concept of the car now is realized in model of the car Â«Jaguar C-X75Â» 2010 of release.
