At the International Paris motor show (Mondial de l’automobile) on the 29-th of Sep 2016 INFINITI will introduce the VC-T (Variable Compression-Turbocharged) – the world’s first production engine with a variable compression ratio, and one of the most technologically advanced internal combustion engines in history.
After more than 20 years of scientific and technical work the new four-cylinder petrol engine of the INFINITI VT-C with turbocharger was a major technological breakthrough in the segment of power units of the internal combustions.
The technology of VT-C is a new chapter in the history of internal combustion engines, which are now not constrained to a fixed aspect ratio. Originality VC-T is the engine’s ability to transform and smoothly adjust the height of the stroke of the pistons – it changes the engine displacement and compression ratio from 8:1 for maximum dynamics up to 14:1 for fuel economy. The complex engine management system with 2006 Nissan 350z tail lights automatically applies the optimal ratio depending on the situation.
