    Merry Christmas… I guess? :p

    What is it?

    It’s a small family car, intended to compete with cars like the VW Golf , Renault Clio , Hyundai i20 etc. But from a brand that values lightness.

    There are also a bunch of variations, including an electric race car, WRC inspired Rally Car, and even a stripped hardcore electric off roader. As well as this there are bunch of mythical (aka unrealistic) components that can be added to the vehicle, these are denoted with a ‘~’ in front of their names in the parts selector (for example, a 1000hp engine).

    The stock models are tuned to be safe and controllable to drive everyday, however, with the ESC disabled it is possible to get the rear end sliding a small amount. If fiddling with wheel alignments is your thing, the chassis responds well to going sideways.

    The jbeam was built from scratch specifically for this vehicle. It features independent mcpherson strut suspension on all 4 corners (unorthodox I know). It also includes a towing hitch option, as well as a roof box and bike rack, should you want them.


    The Interactive Digital Dashboard

    Yes, this car has a fully digital interactive dashboard!
    It has its own integrated cruise control systems and a G-Meter.

    Controls:
    Up = 't'
    Down = 'g'
    Menu/Select = 'y'


    A Massive Thank You to:
    All the BeamNG devs, your mod support has been invaluable. Without you, this car wouldn't be 10% of what it is currently.
    @gabester , for allowing me to use his album art on the infotainment system.
    @roy99669 for user testing at many stages throughout development.



    Backstory (Why "Alpha"?)

    The R60 is the first jbeam I ever started, it is the vehicle that I used to learn how to mod BeamNG. However, as is always the case with “learning on the job”, lots of mistakes were made. While I have had massive amounts of fun working on and driving the R60, it’s been over 4 years since development started, and its clearer than ever that it will never be finished. So, I am releasing it as is. It may receive updates with cool new things, it may never receive an update. This is a hobby for me, so it will depend entirely on whether I feel like working on it or not. Now that it is public, hopefully other people (ie. You) will be able to have fun with it too :).

    By releasing the R60 as is, I can allow myself to spend more time working on newer more exciting things, rather than constantly trying to tie up loose ends on this mod.



    Tldr: This mod will never be finished, but it may still receive updates from time to time.​

    It is a really great mod! Question: Does the drive mod selector actually change how the car perform? Thank you.

      Thanks :)
      The drive mode selector does not change the cars performance. It is purely for changing the dashboard display mode.

    I downloaded it mainly to try the digital dashboard and I have to say that it's pretty good! The car has a nice design overrall and the dashboard adds a futuristic look to the car.
    - 5 stars for the dashboard and all the thingies associated with it
    - 5 stars for the body design
    - 3.75 stars for the jbeam which is pretty basic but at least is available and makes relatively good looking crashes

    A "Good job" from me and keep improving it since it's a very solid base for an even better mod :)

    really good mod although there's something i can't quite put my finger on that makes it look unrealistic, it's not the styling or anything like that, maybe the lights? im not sure its a good mod but just doesnt *feel* like a realistic car

    Its a interesting mod, Sure it has weird styling, but that's what makes it cool. More features will make this way better

    It's a nice mod, gave 3 stars because of quality, which is above average. Half of the configs don't have thumbnails and the car lacks EU plate support and horn. But it's a nice start for a vehicle mod. :)

    Pretty good. But there's not much details in the interior tho. Still all my 5 stars go to this. I suggest you make textures for the interior.
