Driveline

- Full Time All Wheel Drive
- SADEV Sequential Gearbox, Transfer Case and front Differential
- Lightweight 300m Axles

Aerodynamics

- CFD validated and developed by Verus Engineering
-
- Front splitter accounts for 35%-45% of total vehicle downforce depending on ride height
- Adjustable Winglets for Aero Balance control
- Floor produces between 35% and 40% of the total vehicle downforce
- The rear diffuser’s design was specific to the high ride heights and to
reduce ride height sensitivity, ensuring downforce production when
attacking the mountain
- Vortex generators behind the front wheels utilize dirty air to re-energize
the flow on the underside of the floor
- The rear wing is the Verus Engineering V2X, featuring a 300mm main element, and a 200mm second element
to produce high levels of rear end downforce.
- The endplates control airflow from around the body to improve rear wing performance. The vents decrease the
endplate vortex and decrease drag. This vent is 3D printed and bonded to the carbon endplate.
- The bargeboard is a complex airflow conditioner that fixes the fact the car is substantially wider than a factory
car. This creates aerodynamic issues from dirty air from the front tires and front fenders which this unit corrects.
- The radiator ducting was optimized for maximum airflow to the radiator and pressure control which is supplied by PWR.

Design

- Exterior design by Oil Stain Lab
- Hoonipigasus is based on an early 911, sharing the roof and some of the rear quarter panels
- Maintaining 911 greenhouse and contours while accomodating a mid-engine wheelbase and RSR like proportions
- Infusing modern aero tech to mesh with vintage feel

Braking

- PFC Brakes Forged Lightweight Calipers, Front and Rear
- Carbon Ceramic Lightweight Rotors

Electronics

- Engine Management and Electronics package developed by Obsidian Motorsport Group
- Twin Motect ECU and a Bosch Motorsport PDM to manage the vehicle
- Obsidian IMU for traction control, vehicle dynamics management
- 18 Injectors, 4 Throttle Bodies, 2 Electronic Wastegates, Full Sensor Package
- Active Ride Height System with real time adjustments and GPS based changes
- KSV Looms made the harness and supported the build

BBi Autosport

BBi Autosport

BBi Autosport built the Hoonipigasus, managing the overall project, assembly with tehcnical partners. BBi completed the power train development and is running full race support on the car.

Scarbo Performance

Scarbo Performance

Scarbo Performance orginally conceptualized the idea of a modern, AWD driveline and chasis in a vintage Porsche. Scarbo was comissioned to develop the chassis for the BBi SVRSR.

Verus Engineering

Verus Engineering

Verus Engineering came on board to shape the car and to push the boundaries of aerodynamics, specificaly for the hillcimb. Verus developed and CFD validated the complete aero package for the car with unique features to achieve maximum downforce, working around the vintage 911 silhouette.

Oil Stain Lab

Oil Stain Lab

Oil Stain Lab was working on the SVRSR early on, shaping a car to maintain vintage 911 outlines yet within modern day Porsche RSR like proportions. Oilstain shaped the visual elements of the car for a one of a kind creation that no one has seen before.

Obsidian Motorsport Group

Obsidian Motorsport Group

Sander Marques of Obsidian Motorsport developed the complete engine managment and chassis electronics package. Implemented the latest in traction control and bringing the active ride height system to life.

PFC Brakes

PFC Brakes

PFC has been a long time BBi partner for braking setups. PFC advised and supplied lightweight forged calipers and pad selections for an optimized setup for the hillclimb.
