“Once a driver has understood how the sports car reacts, he becomes more confident. The sports car becomes a part of him.”
Lars König knows exactly what is important when it comes to the ultimate driving experience. “For us, performance not only means this one absolutely top time, we want controllability. A sports car must always feel safe and reliable. The driver must not be taken by surprise.” This principle is also reflected in the latest technical development.
In recent years, vehicle dynamics have been significantly improved by predictive and integrative systems, and safety continuously optimized. This is where Lars König envisages the continued development path for sports cars: “For the future generation of sports cars, the aim is to improve all systems in such a way that a vehicle is no longer able to come off the road.”
With the safety-optimized and individualized solutions from Bosch, driving fun will definitely not fall by the wayside in the future.
From the roaring classic racing series to the relatively low-noise Formula E: motorsports have undergone major changes over many years. Klaus Böttcher has witnessed many of these innovations which he summarizes as follows: “Developments in motorsports are also always driven by those things that interest consumers.”
One thing, however, has remained the same over the years: the demand for performance.
“When we think of motorsports, we usually think of high performance and high speeds. But performance also has to do with the right timing – which means making the right solution available to our customers at the right time.”
With these products and solutions, Bosch has been at the forefront of vehicle development in motorsports for many years.
