Axon Automotive - Could be using TRK technology in their IVT

BB poster (Hornchurch Homer) of iii earlier this year(27.05.08)phoned AXON Automotive - said that company confirmed TRK-IVT would be used in their production car.

"I phoned up Axon and asked. Apparently the transmission in the current car is a French CVT belt and pulley affair the production car is planned to have a Torotrak IVT.

PS all the directors are in Cornwall I spoke to a senior technical person"

Technology Strategy Board - Project :

"The Axon 60 is a vehicle for the very low CO2/km fleets of the future delivering 100+ mpg whilst meeting EU vehicle legislation. It is light weight (less than 500kg), low drag and is powered by a best practice 500cc engine and Infinitely Variable Transmission (IVT)."

Ugar Sahin : 2009 Z03 Chevrolet Corvette - Flybrid a partner in this project

http://www.ugursahindesign.com/partners.html

Probably this project is not on target and possibly still waiting to get funding

"Founded in 2007, Ugur Sahin Design is the brainchild of Axel van Mourik and Ugur Sahin. The Corvette Z03 Concept is the first in what the company intends to be a series of high-end, high-performance limited edition vehicles based on existing cars. Supercars.net reports that Ugur Sahin Design teamed up with suppliers such as Flybrid Systems, Modesi Design, Fischer Motorsports and Kirkham Motorsports on the Z03 Concept. Pricing will be announced some time in March, and sales are expected to begin in late 2008."

AMG-massaged Mercedes Hybrid V8 - Bluepower - TRK-FLY-XTR KERS system

AMG is looking to a new hybrid-equipped V8, dubbed BluePower, that will either come with the X-Trac Flybrid system or a 100-hp electric motor integrated into the transmission.
