‘Lightweight Race Enhanced Vehicles’

Goy Advanced Automobile summarizes the core philosophy behind its vehicles in the phrase ‘Lightweight Race Enhanced Vehicles’, or LREVs. A variation on the loosely defined category of High Performance Vehicles, Goy ambitiously defines their vision of LREVs in 5 key areas: [ [http://www.goy.com.au/philosophy.html Goy Advanced Automobiles Design and Engineering] . Retrieved 20 April 2008]
*Lightest in class
*Sub 5 seconds acceleration from 0-100km/h
*Great ride and handling
*Excellent fuel efficiency
*Prominent styling

These key strategic functions are the main features of Goy’s concept vehicles, which in turn will make their way into the production vehicles by 2012.

Prototypes

Nomenclature

Goy Automobiles follow a simple nomenclature in the naming of many of the 2008 Concept Vehicles; a single letter followed by a number. The letter indicates the body type, while the number indicates the wheelbase. The system of letter and number is as follows:

Body Type:
*S = Sedan
*H = Hatchback
*K = Convertible
*C = Coupe
*L = Lifestyle vehicle

Wheelbase:
*1 = Long
*2 = Medium
*3 = Compact/Small

For example, the Goy S1 a long wheel base sedan.

The Goy S1 Concept is a full-size LREV. In terms of size, the S1 concept is positioned in direct competition with the range topping full size luxury vehicles offered by other prestige carmakers (including the BMW 7 Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Audi A8, Lexus LS). Whilst the S1 competes with alternative models on the market in terms of Luxury Motoring, the concept importantly represents the introduction of several significant performance advancements which are common to all the Goy concept vehicles, including an ultra-lightweight composite construction, rally-tuned ride and handling, and rapid acceleration (0-100km/h in less than 5 seconds) as claimed on the Goy Website.

The Goy S2 Concept is an executive LREV. Though similar in size to the many premium-brand competitors in this segment (including the BMW 5 Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Audi A6, Lexus ES), like the S1, the S2 showcases a number of ambitious and unique attributes including an ultra-lightweight composite construction, very fast acceleration (0-100km/h in less than 5 seconds) and a rally-tuned drive system.

K2

The Goy K2 Concept is a Convertible LREV. Ambitiously, the convertible will feature four doors – a body style rarely seen on the modern market.

[ [http://www.goy.com.au/s1.html Goy Advanced Automobile K2] .

H2

The H2 Concept is a mid-size luxury Hatchback style LREV. Similar in size to the entry level luxury models from other premium carmakers (including the BMW 1 Series, Audi A3), the H2 possesses features common with other Goy Concept vehicles including lightweight composite construction, rapid acceleration and a rally tuned drive system.
