Aro - romanian plant on release of off-road cars. — IMS-57 — released the first car in 1957. The car was constructed on the basis of GAZ-69. More than 90% of the released cars were exported to more than 100 countries. This plant was bankrupt in 2006.
The history of ARO plant began in 1885 when the factory on cellulose processing was created, but in 1899 it stopped working, and in 1933 was preserved. During the period from 1941 to 1944 it was used as a warehouse. From 1945 to 1950 it was used for car repairs of the Romanian and Soviet troops. In 1953 tried to adjust release of the IMS-53 motorcycles, all 12 units were let out. Since 1957 the plant started making auto parts — engines and transmissions, and release of cars IMS 57, M 59, ARO M 461 the same year begins. For all the time of existence of plant it released about 380 000 cars.
1972 put an end to a break in production ARO, having let out a row from five models. The ARO 24 model kept the success till 80th years, there was no new ARO 10 series yet.
Passed 4 more years then engineers of ARO developed the first diesel engine, L 27. And in 1989 some months prior to the end of a communistic era of Romania, the improved petrol engine came to replacement.
It is excessive to say that the country endured a little difficult period in the early nineties to that the international mass media paid much attention. Meanwhile, ARO which resolved issues of possession and the fast-falling share actions, in 1997 let out the new ARO 10 model also known as Spartana.
The same year engineers started looking for inspiration in east culture, and after several plates of sushi and uncountable bowls to Saca, created a military model range of Dragon.
At the beginning of the new millennium of ARO entered the new market as all cars were developed, being based only on ideas of usefulness and advantage. Despite good intentions and good strategic plans, at ARO problems with management of funds and absence of large investments began. It led to the inevitable end, and in the next years ARO became the bankrupt.
Though it not the well-known brand, about 380 000 Aro cars were made for the 45-year period two thirds from which were exported to 110 countries, including Spain and Portugal.
The only thing with what the majority of you, perhaps, we aren't so well familiar, is that ARO, but not Dacia, was the producer who created the fastest Romanian car of that time, sports Ford Cosworth with h.p. V6 180 engine which could accelerate quite big car practically to 120 miles an hour.
