Aljoša Tušek - the first Slovenian constructor of super sports cars
Stories of Slovenian entrepreneurs in the world can be significantly more successful than at home, the global market can offer opportunities to compatriots who decide to try in one of the boutique industries, which many people do not like at home, and there are enough customers in the world lives and grows. This category also includes supercars, which are among the fastest and most expensive (and supposedly the most beautiful) cars in the world.
Crowds dream of super sports cars, but only a few lucky people can drive them. Because of the astronomical price, of course. Super sports cars have long been a part of Aljoša Tušek's everyday life. They are his dreams and a great obsession, as he can boast that he has been constructing them together with his colleagues for a decade. It is not easy for him, there is always not enough money for development.His path in the automotive business has been long and thorny to this day. It has been developing prototypes under its Tushek brand since 2004, and the latest product is a hybrid car. With it, he wants to offer the best of the world of petrol and electric engines on the road and racetracks.
The Tushek company was founded by Aljoša Tušek, born in 1965 in Ptuj, Slovenia. At the age of 14, Tushek quickly became interested in racing. He started riding a dealer and motorcycles and won the Alpe Adria Cup for three years in a row. However, when he obtained a driver’s license, Tushek devoted his racing efforts only to cars. In 1999, he was named the pioneer of the year in the Fiat Seicento Cup. A year later, he joined and quickly became the top competitor in the Petrol Racing Team. Tushek ended his racing career in the Target Citroen Factory competition team with the Citroen Xsara N-Group during the Slovenian National Cup in 2003. Tušek in Slovenia boasts great cars that can match the best in the world.In 2004, Tushek used his experience with racing cars to build his own supercar. The original idea was for Tushek to produce a range of prestigious and efficient K1 Attack sports cars. There is no real understanding and no real support for car development in Slovenia. It is this support and better working environment that he received in Austria, where he works with AVL, which is one of the largest engineering companies in the world, and is also assisted by other manufacturers, such as carbon parts, tools and the like. In any case, the industry in Austria is better developed. He is now, co-owner of the Slovenian-Austrian niche manufacturer of super sports cars Tushek & Spigel Supercars.
Later, however, he decided to develop his own model of superstars. In 2008, he started designing the first prototype of the Renovatio TS 500. Renovatio means "rebirth", as it is the first Slovenian supercar, which is 70% different from the previous Slovak K1 Attack. The Tushek T 500 has been highly accepted in the global Supercars market. The Tushek Supercars Group has received good coverage in many international publications as well as customers.
2008-2012: Tushek built the TS 500 Renovatio and was unveiled at the Top Marquez in Monaco.The hand-crafted small-series sports car is powered by Audi’s 4.2-liter V8 engine with a maximum output of 331 kW and a maximum torque of 428 Nm. This is enough for the car to accelerate to 100 km / h in 3.7 seconds, and its top speed is measured at 310 kilometers per hour.One of the main features of Tušek supercars is their low weight.
Tushek built and disassembled the second TS 600 in TopMarquez Monaco in 2014. According to Autocar, the TS 600 is ranked fourth among the Top 10 Supercars in 2014 and the same car still remains on the top 10 lists of super cars!
At the beginning of 2014, Aljoša Tušek gave a hand to the Austrian investor Jacob Carl Spiegel, and moved the production to the Austrian Cmurek / Mureck, a town right on the border with Slovenia. There, they developed an even lighter and more efficient TS600, built around a carbon fiber monocoque with titanium components. The car is powered by a 4.2-liter V8 engine with 630 hp, which provides exceptional acceleration to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds, 200 km / h in 7.4 seconds and 300 km / h in 17.4 seconds. The speedometer stops only at 351 kilometers per hour. Due to its exceptional power and light construction, for the needs of efficient braking, the car is equipped with high-tech carbon-ceramic brakes, which stop the car at a speed of 200 km / h in less than 4.2 seconds. The Tushek TS 600 will be produced in just 33 units, while its price remains unknown. For comparison, for the T500 model, around € 300,000 had to be deducted.
Developing a supercar requires a lot of money.It’s hard to talk about exact amounts, and it all revolves around millions of euros.The demand for luxury products is really high, as there are more and more rich people around the world and they are representatives of the trend of owning something that not everyone has. Those who have money adore things that are rare and consequently expensive.
The supercar is very uncomfortable and of limited use for everyday use, but many people want to drive it. The example of the Bugatti is eloquent - it is one of the fastest cars in the world. People want to have something of quality and above all different in the garage, so they want it. Many are happy just to have it in their garage. The rich have a lot of prestigious cars and just by looking at them they are happy. Most of their potential buyers have at least 20 cars in the garage. No one is thinking of buying a Tushek car instead of a Ferrari, but Ferrari already has one. And not just one.
Tušek has made eight prototypes so far. The TS 500 (the latter went to Germany) and the TS 600 were created under the Tushek brand. The ninth prototype is the hybrid TS 900 apex.
Tushek TS900 Apex, It is a technological revolution on four wheels that demonstrates the true use of new technologies. It creates new dimensions of driving enabled by hyper-hybrid technology.The aggressive sporty exterior adds new dimensions to the aerodynamics. The drivetrain has many patent-protected solutions that provide exceptional super car performance.The car is certainly extremely striking, design-wild and futuristic enough. From some points of view, there is a noticeable resemblance to the Lamborghini brand.
The car is powered by Audi's 4.2-liter FSI V8 engine at the rear, and two more electric motors are installed at the front. Together, they produce a power of 480 kilowatts and a thousand newton meters of torque. It will be possible to drive this hybrid up to 50 kilometers on electricity alone.The system power of the car will thus amount to a poor megawatt (1,340 "horsepower") and 1,600 newton meters of torque. The theoretical top speed of such a car can reach up to 380 kilometers per hour, and mainly thanks to electric motors, the car will also have instantaneous accelerations or immediate torque.DriveThe TS900 is powered by two units. Each drives its own pair of wheels, each its own axle. The Apex is thus actually a four-wheel-drive supercar that will ensure its constructors have no problems with grip and tor
Buyers of the lightest hybrid in the world will be mostly home from Europe, as well as from the Middle East and China. “Hypercars are niche products aimed at a narrow circle of customers. Mostly these are car enthusiasts and athletes.
It is an extremely powerful sports car both on the open road and on the racetrack. "Just under one megawatt of power, both powertrains offer the driver, which means that the TS900 accelerates to a hundred kilometers per hour in just 2.5 seconds. The top speed outside the racetrack is just an academic number and hard to reach at the moment: it reaches 380 kilometers per hour in ideal conditions.
Aljoša Tušek believes in her dreams and potential in the demanding global market of petite (wealthy) buyers.
