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.
