Jetfire to nowa wersja kompaktowego F-85 zaopatrzona w turbosprężarkę i wtrysk paliwa.


W styczniu br. zakłady Oldsmobile obchodziły uroczystość wyprodukowania 7.500.000 samochodów. Według oświadczenia dyrektora produkcji W. Slachta, zakłady te otwarte w 1897 roku, milionowy samochód wyprodukowały w roku 1931.
Nie są to jednak duże cyfry w porównaniu z Volkswagenem.

 There's "Something Extra" about owning an OLDS!
 
  Something that transcends the inviting look of rich new fabrics or the crisp response of o precisely-engineered power plant. Something beyond the simple pleasure of threading an Olds through traffic ... or thundering it through its paces on a turnpike ... or merely parking it out front.
  Perhaps it is the sense of pride you feel when you quietly tell a parking lot attendant, "Mine's the '62 Olds." Or the flattering professional respect your Olds earns when you sweep into the neighborhood gas station. Or the calm assurance of knowing that you've invested wisely and well ... and that your investment will hold.
  On the following pages, you'll meet a sparkling array of new Oldsmobiles – magnificent Ninety-Eights ... superb Super 88's ... dazzling Dynamic 88's ... stylish new F-85's ... plus a stunning new Starfire! Any one you choose will amply demonstrate the point: there is ''something extra'' about owning an Olds!

Over three years ago, Oldsmobile engineers set out to develop a revolutionary new engine. It was to lie an engine of incredible smoothness, with extraordinary acceleration characteristics and an almost unlimited performance capacity.
After three years of intensive development and testing, this remarkable new engine is now under the hood of one car – Oldsmobile's JETFIRE!
It is a 215-cubic-inch aluminum V-8 with an exhaust-driven turbocharger and fluid injection system that delivers one horsepower for every cubic inch of displacement.
The turbocharger revolves at ultra-high speed (up to 90,000 rpm) and "force feeds" the fuel charge into the cylinders. This turbocharging increases power by almost 40%. It also helps blend the fuel-air mixture.
That's where fluid injection takes effect. Operation at these high temperatures and pressures is virtually impossible with today's fuels. Therefore, a special water-based Turbo-Rocket Fluid is injected into the fuel-air mixture to cool the charge and lower the temperatures inside the cylinders.
The result is performance that is nothing short of spectacular! Acceleration is exceptional in the low-end speed ranges – and downright sensational from there on up. For passing or hill climbing, the Turbo-Rocket is unsurpassed.
