Russian Innovation:Revolutionary Car Engine

According to news sources, a 74-year-old Russian designer and teacher at the Volgograd Agricultural Academy, named Robert Grigoryants, has developed a car engine to end all other engines before it. He has cited more than twenty principal differences between his car engine and its western counterparts.

 

 

In his own words:

“My engine works without any noise. It is absolutely harmless to our environment. It is the most economic engine ever created and it can work even without transmission. I have already calculated that 10,000 such engines with the 600 horse-power capacity can save up to 2.6 billion rubles ($7.5 million) a year in terms of fuel economy and 16 million rubles ($500,000) in terms of metal economy.”

Quite a statement, isn’t that? The real question, however, is can he convince the Russian government to permit him to use his invention for the good of Russia? The answer lies in the wings or is blowing in the wind, as Bob Dylan to sing. Grigoryants is convinced that his engine will transform Russia into the most competitive car producer in the world.

 


Is he alone in his thoughts? Or could he be right? If that is the case, why then aren’t the world’s greatest carmakers over there begging for use of this engine?

Fair question, no?

Perhaps time will tell as to how effective this new engine is. After all, Henry Ford didn’t build his empire within a day nor did the Romans, as the old saying goes.

What do YOU think about this?

Pravda

Hi Gwenny,

I want to first of all thank you for your response.

I do appreciate it.

You have every right to prefer your sources and this article was featured in several places. I chose Pravda because it was where I found the  info first. I did feel you were being sarcastic and you have to realize that the anonymity provided by this site makes some people think they have the right to vent on me everything that is wrong with their lives. Most of my comments are positive, but I have gotten some uncalled for beauts in my day, believe me.

i don't mind constructive critcism ever. If you come across some good sources for stories about Russia, by all means, if you have the time, please send them along.

I obviously misread your tone and I do apologize for that.

I aim to please my readers as they are the backbone of my column.

Maybe that's why bad comments affect me so.

In any case, thank you for the chance to talk to you and for being senstive to my feelings.

That is a very important quality and one much needed and not enough appreciated in this world of ours.

Keep reading, Gwenny.

Glad to have you onboard.

 

Yours in Words,

I'm confused. There's no real info on this engine and my first few searches have
yeilded no additional material. So, what's the deal? If you can put up more stuff, I'd love to see it.
cheers

From the patents it looks

From the patents it looks like a rotary, not unlike numerous rotary engines of the past. There's nothing new here, so all you conspiracy theorists can relax. There won't be a big cover-up by the oil companies or anyone else.

He is probably right

But for every inventor who makes the headlines there are 100 more with equally good ideas and no money. I am an electrical/mechanical engineer and I have come across several different people all convinced they have invented a new engine which is much better than the existing car engine.

Even if their designs were 30 times better, it still wouldn't be cost-effective for all the car makers to change to a different type of engine, so it will probably never happen. Unfortunately.

Anyway, right or wrong, thanks so much for your comment.
