    Hello all, welcome to the Amaterasu Automotive company's thread! All vehicles shown here are designed by me. :cool:



    Amaterasu is based in Yokohama, Japan. They specialize in passenger vehicles in a range of sizes and levels of performance, and are known for their quality, reliability, and affordability. Their entire list of vehicles produced from past to present will be shown below.

    M50GroupShot.png
    The Amaterasu M50 is the fifth generation sedan in the M-Series. It's design features a steel monocogue chassis, and steel panels. The engine is located in the front, is mounted longitudinally, and is RWD. The M60 was available in 3 different trim levels, both the Maxim and Marquis trims were released in 1984, and the Monarch trim, which was released in 1986. The M50 was produced until 1988. Consider the Maxim as more of a 'base model' trim, while the Marquis is the higher end luxury trim, and the Monarch is the faster, sportier trim.

    M50Maxim8.png
    M50Maxim1.png M50Maxim2.png

    The Maxim trim weighs in at 2759 lbs (55% front / 45% rear), and features a double wishbone front, and a solid axle coil rear suspension configuration, open differential, as well as hydropneumatic springs, twin-tube dampers, and passive sway bars. The braking system includes 275mm solid discs up front with 2 piston calipers, and 245mm solid discs in the rear with 1 piston calipers. It is equipped with 205 medium compound radial tires wrapped around 15 inch alloy rims.

    The Maxim is powered by the Amaterasu J2000-SE, which is an aluminum block 2.0L (2000cc) inline six making 102 hp @ 6000 RPM, and 116 lb-ft @ 3300 RPM. It features a 12V SOHC aluminum head, cast crankshaft, connecting rods, and pistons, multi point electronic fuel injection in a single configuration, standard intake, short cast exhaust manifold, three-way catalytic converter, and reverse flow mufflers.

    Thank you! This vehicle has by far been the most time and effort I've put into an Automation build so I'm glad someone likes it. :D
    --- Post updated ---
    Made some good progress on the Marquis and Monarch trims. Don't have pics since I need to get to bed for work tomorrow, lol... :p
    I also realized I had both the Marquis and Monarch trims mixed up in my first post so I switched them around. The M50 Monarch is the top of the line trim that was produced from 1986-1988.

    I've completed the other two M50s. The Marquis being the high end luxury trim shown in black, and the Monarch being the sportier trim shown in white.

    Now that you say it I can see what you mean. The M50 was heavily inspired by the Toyota GX71 Mark II and Nissan Leopard more so than the Pessima, however.

    I've noticed a flaw in my designs. The windshield wipers are backwards... :p
    I'm gonna change them now, lol. I live in Canada so while the way they're placed currently is normal for me, it's not normal in Japan.

    --- Post updated ---

    The issue has been fixed. Now time to continue working on the next project!

    --- Post updated ---


    With the huge success of the Amaterasu M50, It's not a big surprise that some design elements would carry over for the next generation of the M-Series.

    i kinda see a maxima lol

    rate my car:
    1995 Hirochi Fūjin base and VT (Variable Turbocharged) editions

    With the jump in sales from the 1991 Hirochi Steadfast (small economy car, competitor to the Covet), Hirochi needed a halo car. It would use the boxer technology they have so far advanced and a bit of design help from Civetta. So Hirochi went on a mission for the perfect supercar- but fate is a wild mistress, and had much more in store for Hirochi than they would have liked. The first hurtle was securing an engine design- with the recent death of Arigamu Hirochi, head of Engineering and Founder, the team had to scramble, to say the least. They decided on a full aluminium flat 6 cylinder with over 492 HP N/A and 627 turbocharged. The engine went through rigorous testing, and continued to fail from bad piston rings. Due to this setback, Hirochi could not make it to the 1992 Detroit Auto show to display their new engine and its stunning new advancements, such as early GDI systems. Hirochi settled for EFI per cylinder- not what they would have liked. This solved the piston ring issues.

    So off they went. The engine was now fool proof and nearly indestructible. But now for the next hurtle. The aluminium processing plant Hirochi was using for the, at the time concept, Fūjin had just burned to the ground due to a faulty gas line. This severely limited production of a car that once was to be mass produced. With that in mind, Hirochi's sports division, OKUDAI, was consulted and given full access to the new concept. This is where things turned around for the wavering project. With the one condition that they were to not mess with the engine, Okudai and Civetta set out to finish the project. After another 3 full years of development, the finished Hirochi Fūjin was slated to start production on January 2nd of 1995 and start to be sold in December after all pre-orders were approved and built. The car was only offered as a pre-order, and only 650 were sold in its 2 year lifespan. the VT was introduced in 1996 and only ever sold 60 units. No roadster or spyder editions were ever produced, though some believe they were to be made before the aluminium factory burned.

    all in all, it was a car to advanced for its time.

    Specs:
    492 WHP/338 LB-FT (627 WHP/486 LB-FT for VT) out of a N/A (or turbocharged) 4.0L F6 mid-longitudinal mounted motor.
    RWD (AWD for VT)
    DOHC 30V
    12.4:1 compression (9.6:1 for VT)
    4 piston front/rear vented brakes 17" front 13" rear
    Luxury interior w/ luxury CD player (fancy XD)
    Aluminium panels w/ carbon fibre chassis
    redline @8800 RPM

    I love the background story into the Fūjin. Performance stats are impressive for a car from '91. The design is wild and aggressive which I like. I think it deserves a 8.5-9/10

    yeah-
    the engine was reworked multiple times throughout the cars development.
    in 91 the N/A version originally made 383 WHP and 481 with the turbocharged one. after subsequent changes in materials and tweaks, the engine was completed in 94 by Hirochi alone. at the listed power figures in my OP. the engine was 'pubically announced' in 91 to be done to keep people interested. So it was technically completed in 91 but subject to massive change even OKUDAI didnt know about. So it did end up being a bit more convoluted than they needed to make it- but it blew people away when the new power figures were finally released in 94.

    Sorry that I've been so inactive, I'll try to put more time into Automation than I have lately... :p
    In terms of progress on the 6th Gen M-Series, I've gotten the design for the rear laid out and I'm quite happy with the result.

    Let me know what you guys think! :D

    Slowly but surely getting closer to the finished product, the M60 is really coming along nicely!
    HiResPhoto88.png
    --- Post updated ---
    To explain further in detail what I’ve done so far, adjusted the trim so I can use the two tone option this body has, split the grille in the bumper into two, and I’m redesigning the taillights to be a lot cleaner. I can’t wait to work on it some more tomorrow and finally get it finished! :cool:

    Well, here it is! The Amaterasu M60 Maxim.

    I'm too tired to even begin writing up the specs so I'll do it at some point soon. At least you can take in these images and let my know what you think of the final product! :D
