Yes! Roadster 3.2
The new Yes! Roadster 3.2 is the perfect conceptual advancement of the yes! and sticks to its own principles: pure driving pleasure.
A powerful 3.2-liter-V6-engine with 255 HP produces an uncompromising driving machine, one that is powerful, vibrant in its performance and supercharged with passion. if 255 BHP is just not enough you can specify the optional power upgrade to 285 BHP! the result is an heir honouring its legacy yet adopting trendsetting shapes and technology – simply a revolutionary evolution! Further more the Yes! Roadster 3.2 has been honoured as "best new car design of the year 2006" by the jury of the chicago athenaeum's good design award , one of the most prestigues design prices world wide.
Compared to its predecessor, the new Yes! has grown significantly. Larger engines and a longer wheelbase have resulted in more overhang at the front as well as the rear leading to a more stretched and full of suspense appearance of the roadster. The wedge-shaped ascending side line and the racy accentuated wings in the front and rear do remain the striking attributes.
For the Yes! Roadster 3.2 Turbo the concept was taken one step further: an especially developed rear wing spoiler assures the necessary down force, to bring 355 HP safely onto the street.
The Yes! Roadster 3.2 Turbo is a driving machine that relocates limits.
With a power to weight ratio of 381 BHP per ton and 485 Nm torque and a 0-62 mph in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 175 mph, the Yes! Roadster turbo requires your total concentration! there is an optional upgrade to in crease the power even further equivalent to 446 BHP per ton with a 0-62 mph of 3.4 seconds. The Yes! Roadster and Turbo both pride them selves with precise and tactile handling. The power is transferred to the wheels with very little transmission losses onto the road. Rewarded with a unique and sensational sense of driving. An experience you will never forget!
The high-strength aluminium-space-frame takes care of the passive safety. Also, driver and passenger are protected by driver and passenger airbags. High-quality materials combined with chrome and leather applications turn the interior into a sporty yet welcoming place to be. Optional equipment and accessories are available, for example the modern multimedia navigation system and the three-way sound system.
With variable camshaft settings the renowned V6 four valve engine equipped with 3,189 cm3 of engine displacement — in the naturally aspirated as well as in the turbo version — combined with a max. Torque already at 2,001 1/min has virtually an easy job with the 890 and 930 kg respectively of the Yes! Roadster 3.2 and 3.2 Turbo. In doing so, the fuel consumpti on is only at 25.3 mpg (Yes! Roadster 3.2) and 22.8 mpg (Yes! Roadster 3.2 Turbo).
A 6-speed-manual transmission or alternatively the 5-speed-automatic transmission (optional, only roadster 3.2) together with a mid engined power train taking care of the power drive is provided to the rear wheels. Gear changes require little shifting effort. Gear changes are precise, short shifting travels allow fast and exact gear changes.
Chassis / Axle / Steering
Light double wishbones at the front and rear axle, adopted from race use, provide in combination with the adjustable spring and damper elements a high responsiveness and precise wheel guidance (optional sports suspension – after sales option). The steering is also adjustable for reach and height to find your perfect driving position.
In addition to the usual high level of passive safety, full-size driver's and passenger's airbag are included for the Yes! Roadster 3.2 and 3.2 Turbo.
Ventilated brake discs on the front axle as well as on the rear axle provide a maximum deceleration and well balanced and stable braking power. The braking power is transferred by 4-piston fixed callipers onto the brake discs. The pedal force is transferred by a multi-channel abs-system which is directly derived from racing.
The exhaust system, consisting of two exhaust pipes made of high-quality steel, does not only release a powerful and individual sound via its two shape integrated pipe ends but also meets the demanding emission standards (lev 1 in the u.s.a, euro 4 in europe.). Optionally, you can obtain a stainless steel-version. Engine with variable camshaft settings and the renowned V6 24 valve engine equipped with 3,189 cm3 of engine displacement — in the naturally aspirated as well as in the turbo version.
