The ‘biggest ever’ supercharger in the world is due to be unveiled on Friday
By James M. DolanPublished September 05, 2018 09:01:57An aerodynamic “biggest-ever” superchargers is due for unveiling next month, with one capable of displacing almost 4,000 tons of air.
Anaerobic performance systems (APS) are used in high-performance cars, but the first of its kind is likely to be the world’s biggest, the Guardian reported, citing engineers at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
It will be capable of pushing the air around the engine from a height of 5,000 feet, which is roughly the height of a football field, according to the article.
It could also generate electricity, potentially generating enough electricity to power up to 100,000 homes.
It’s expected to take about two years to complete.
In the United States, the biggest APS currently is a 5,200-ton superchargor used in the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GLC, but it’s a different story in Europe, where APS are not yet used.
The new APS is expected to be bigger, taller and wider than the SLS’s, which has a total of 1,800 feet of wheelbase.
This means that the APS will have to be a lot bigger to get it up to speed with the world-class performance of the current SLS.
In Europe, APS have been used in Formula One, Formula E and NASCAR.
It’s not clear how much bigger the APs could be.
The APS, which was developed by AEROMotive and built by the German company Brix, is expected for the 2018 season.
It is scheduled to be delivered to a customer in 2019.AEROMotors’ Jeff Johnson, a senior engineer at the firm, told the Guardian that the firm expects to begin testing in 2019, but only if they can get it approved by the European Commission, which oversees APS in Europe.
The European Commission does not yet have an official position on APS.
If approved, the AP is expected in the 2019 or 2020 season, and will be able to be installed by 2019.
