The ADESS-03 EVO will hit the track this month for its first tests. It features a new engine – NISSAN VK56 - with 460 hp, a traction control, a new driver safety kit (including side protection zylon panels, reinforced seat and headrest), a twin-elements rear wing, an improved rear suspension geometry and a shorter wheelbase.
ADESS is the chassis partner of the recently unveiled LMPH2G, for GreenGT. The car, presented by GreenGT and the ACO at the European Le Mans Series 4H of Spa-Francorchamps, ran demonstration laps and exhibited a refueling pit-stop, showcasing the car’s features. The LMPH2G has now become the center of the ACO’s Mission H24 campaign.
Pininfarina recently presented its newest track car, the H2 Speed. This Hydrogen-powered track GT rockets from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and flies down the straights at +300km/h. With 653bhp powering the rear wheels and spaceship-like design by the famous Italian house, the H2 Speed is a highlight of alternative-energy technology.
Continuing our previous work in this field, we designed the chassis for the H2 Speed. It features an ADESS LMP3 modified monocoque matched to the powertrain, designed by Green GT. The mechanical assemblies of the car, while based on our LMP3 as well, are dedicated and specific to the H2 Speed.
We are proud to be a partner of GreenGT and Pininfarina in this project. Developing a car with such groundbreaking technology was a great challenge that involved our whole team.
On Tuesday 6th March GreenGT and Pininfarina revealed the rolling chassis of the H2 Speed at the Geneva International Motor Show. ADESS, a partner in the project, supplied the carbon cell around which this electric-hydrogen fuel cell powered supercar is constructed.
The H2 Speed concept presented two years ago by GreenGT has now become a reality that was revealed at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. The prototype electric-hydrogen fuel cell-powered supercar designed by Pininfarina was on display on the Italian company’s stand. It is the first of a series of 12 cars destined for private clients for track use.
LISBON, Portugal – Nov 1, 2017. Throughout the 2017 racing season, the ADESS-03 LMP3 race car competed in the Asian Le Mans Sprint Cup and the “Road to Le Mans” event. The team Infinity Race Engineering achieved encouraging results, scoring six podiums in six races in the Asian Le Mans Sprint Cup and finishing second in the team standings.
In the meantime, Advanced Design and Engineering Systems Solutions AG continued the development of its ADESS-03 LMP3 race car and recently unveiled a new full-carbon bodywork kit and other updates, approved by the ACO (Automobile Club de l’Ouest), that will be fitted on every new ADESS car and is now ready to compete on North American racetracks with the rest of the LMP3 car makers.
Our new home
ADESS is now in Portugal. Our new location is just a few kilometers away from Lisbon, right in the heart of the logistical and industrial district of the capital.
Here we strike the perfect balance between having direct access to suppliers and being close to the distribution network, either by air or freight.
Our new factory allows us to grow and expand our activity. Focusing on increasing our internal production, we now have more control over results and production timing while gaining adaptability and more liberty to produce prototypes and test new components.
