Gavril Mione | 80s American Coupe&Hatch Pack 1.0

Moment of nostalgia

    GAVRIL Mione
    An 80s compact American coupe and hatchback.

    Hello, everyone. And I want to show you the new complete mod of mine.
    It is an 80s American compact car that is 'dark' period of the American car industry. There was no old compact car of America on BeamNG.drive currently, so I want to make that one.

    I have benchmarked Mercury Capri, Dodge 400, Honda prelude, Buick Riviera/Reatta, and Dodge Daytona for a coupe, Chevrolet Citation, Hyundai Excel for the hatchback.

    The development process of the vehicle was made by joint development with Japan's Ibishu Corp. The era of the car's creation was a difficult time for many U.S. auto industries that failed to keep up with strict U.S. auto regulations. The independent development did not perform well due to U.S. auto regulations, and many people were trying to turn to Japanese or German products. In order to break through these difficult times, Gavril briefly laid down its existing independent development route and proposed to Japan's Ibishu to develop a subcompact based on compact cars sold at the time. Ibishu, who is on a roll with the bubble economy, is willing to accept the development of the project to advance into the field of large cars that were struggling at the time.
    The Mione, a vehicle from the process, was developed based on Ibishu's U.S. market compact Corvette. The existing corvettes' short battlefields have been increased to enhance collision stability and improve hatchback structure to have a wider interior space. On the other hand, the absence of a sports coupe has led to the development of a two-door coupe model using a corvettes chassis. In the driving line, there was little change except for the four-wheel drive system, and instead it is equipped with Gavril's six-cylinder engine, focusing on high-performance models. The engine, like the Volkswagen VR engine, had a very short bank angle between the pistons, which made it easy to fit into the engine room of narrow corvettes.
    In 1987, Mione makes her debut splendidly throughout the United States. From 2.2-liter passenger van specifications to 3.3-liter sports coupe specifications, the company showed efforts to recognize and sell various consumers. Gavril will not stop there and build a rally car based on the vehicle. Although he did not perform well, he achieved some success in his efforts to shake off the image of American cars as dull and heavy. Based on this, Gavril plans to sell the vehicle in Europe as well, and in fact has shown significant sales in its European branch. Confidently, Gavril decided to help Ibishu develop a semi-large car and emerge as a business partner, leading to a technical partnership until the economic crisis hit in 1998.

    its a fun thing to drive around, but the wonky proportions and the fact it looks like an elongated manana and covet hybrid just makes it look wrong.
    but its a really good first mod! it just needs a bit of polishing.

    This is a really cool concept. However, it is still rough around the edges. The biggest problem is the proportions, the front and rear overhang aren't very well proportioned, and the roofline/beltline is kinda weird.

    Not that bad of a vehicle, especially for a new modder. A couple of noticeable problems with this car is that if you drive the AWD models of the car in reverse, the back wheels tend to fly off. Another being some issues with the JBeam structure being a tad wonky. In other words, a good car, but would need updating in the future.

    You got something, now polish it. For now its very rough on the edges but i see an interesting future for this if you keep working on it

    Initially I was a bit skeptical because it looks so much like the Covet but the longer wheelbase makes it feel great to drive, at least to me using a controller. Yeah it's a bit wonky, but then so were the real American economy hatchbacks in the 80s.

    In all seriousness though, great first mod. However, as many others have said, it has some pretty off-putting issues. I'm looking forward to updates though.

    This car is a neat idea and I love that it's similar to the GTAIII/VC Manana but the car is lazily put together (Is basically an elongated Covet) and has really bad driving issues when using a FFB Wheel, with horrible torque steer and weird jolts to the wheel when setting off. This car needs polish and originality with it's parts and model

      That means I need to give a nerf of engine torque
