I want to know how their international customers go pronouncing that.
Actually they are Iceland exclusive.

More like asking if I should port it...
A rough visual mockup of a Ferrari FF/GTC4Lusso-style Civetta.
You shouldn't .
Any constructive criticism?
It looks plain. No mirrors, and a lot of place to do some more.
Two words: "rough mockup".
That's why you shouldn't port it.
I'm not porting this yet, it's a rough mockup.
Body seems to have a bit of an older look than the design placed upon it. As in, the parts on the body look more modern than the body itself, which the body looks like it came from the late 90s/early 2000s.
It is inspired by the current Camaro and Mustang, but could be used as a Ferrari/Lamborghini-style shooting brake.
If only the front could be more sloped...
I also think that you could shorten the grille a bit and tilt the headlights differently, or make them more similar to the FF.
So, I made a sorta-diesel 6-liter multi-point-EFI mid-'80s straight-six in Automation, and decided that the best car to swap that sucker into was not a pickup truck or an SUV, but a luxury muscle car. The resulting mashup is called...
1978-1989 Gatz Valerian Mk4 600-6TDE (VSX40/D) (1986 second facelift shown)
This, folks, is insanity and ingenuity wrapped up in one oddball malaise-era premium muscle car. The Mk4 Gatz Valerian (which by now had become pretty much a rebadged and re-tuned KZNG Statesman coupe), although smaller and lighter than the Mk3 that it replaced, was still a bit too big and gas-guzzling for the 1980 CAFE standards. Obviously, since Gatz only had its big V8s and V12s and KZNG’s many straight-sixes on standby (and because Gatz refused to use anything smaller than 6 liters in their biggest model), they decided to go the wild route. This meant swapping the mighty KR-60-O/TDE 6-liter turbodiesel pushrod mechanically-injected straight-six from KZNG’s pickup trucks into a new trim of their halo GT/muscle car, with a specially-built 4-speed manual to handle the torque.
The combination, called the 600-6TDE, proved to be an instant success with those who still wanted to buy a Valerian, but didn’t want to have to pay out of their pockets for single-digit gas mileage or lose the performance of the V12s. It was plenty powerful for the time, with almost 500 pound-feet of torque at 2,600 RPM and almost 300 horsepower at 4,000 RPM. It could crack 135 miles per hour and reach 60 miles per hour in less than 8 seconds - seriously quick for a 3,700-pound muscle car. It wasn’t that bad-handling, either, with the Valerian’s all-around double-wishbone suspension and clutch-pack LSD (swapped to a geared LSD for the '82 first facelift, then a viscous LSD in '86) giving it decent cornering grip and driveability. It got even faster once the KR-Series received EFI for the 1986 second facelift, providing it with a mild boost in power, fuel efficiency, and torque.
But after the release of the ZD-Series quad-cam all-alloy twin-turbo V12s in 1985, the TDE no longer had much of a use in Gatz’s lineup - for the elite minority, at least. It was now too heavy for the corners, too slow for drag racing, and not as economical of a choice as it had been before '85. Neither did it have enough prestige for most Valerian buyers, as it was now viewed as only a poverty-spec eco model for those who couldn’t afford a “proper” model. Nor was it satisfactory for Gatz’s chairman, Jordan Marshmallow, who found a diesel model to be harmful to the Valerian’s reputation. A shame, really, for the 1986-1989 final edition proved to be a fine choice in the lineup with over 500 pound-feet of torque and over 300 horsepower. It cracked 144 miles per hour and hit 60 in 7 seconds, all while still getting 17 mpg from its multi-point-EFI-equipped engine.
(This thing doesn't really drive all that well in BeamNG, though - especially when starting up. It does REALLY great as a highway cruiser, though, but it's not the first car I think of if I wanted to do some city bruising.)
It’s a diesel LTD Crown Vic!
so......how many of yall went through with posting your ports?
This is exactly why some people should not have access to this great power. 800hp 5L V12 in a shell that I smile just looking at more than I have driving anything in game to date. My favorite vehicle yet.
I didn't really go for quality screen shots obviously. Not really necessary with a subject as gorgeous as this thing.
The 2020 Civetta Bolide,1495 Hp, and a top speed of 296 mph. luxury and speed have never been so well combined.
