– Given chance for official exportation to Europe.
– Oullim Networks Inc. finally aquired European standard certification with Spirra.
– Official sales to Germany, Switzerland, Holland and other European countries is now possible.
Spirra is the very first domestic handmade super car installed with turbo engine performing the maximum output of 500HP, the maximum torque 58.3kg/m. Only limited quantity will be hand-produced, so it won’t be distributed broadly.
Spirra began domestic distribution from last May, and has been proceeding with certification process since. Oullim Motors Inc. has been preparing the process thru Oullim Motors, the subsidiary company, contracting with TUV Rheinland Korea, the international certification service company, in November 2007. In June 2008, they signed a service contract with Korea Automobile Testing & Research Institute of Korea Transportation Safety Authority (KATRI), and have been researching for 14 months.
In order to begin sales in Europe, a vehicle needs to pass tests on 32 system clauses of safety and environmental regulations and 7 single clauses designated to minor-production cars among Whole Vehicle Type Approval(WVTA). And Spirra has passed them all successfully.
Oullim Networks Inc., in charge of sales and marketing, succeeded in concluding exportcontract with Miles Benelux in Holland, and planned to 145 models for 3 years. However, as the certification process slowed down, the export procedure has been postponed as well. Acquisition of Europe certification process has made the export feasible again.
PARK, Dong-Hyuck, representative at Oullim Networks Inc. stated, ‘I am very overwhelmed and proud that super car made part by part by our won hands will soon compete with world-class cars like Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Porches. I hope what we have achieved today can spread hope to many dedicated engineers and students in automotive studies.’
Oullim Networks Inc. has received the official statement stating Spirra’s eligibility to all tests from TUV Rheinland Korea. The certificate will be issued this coming August.
