    Produced from 1987 to 1995 by American automaker Bruckell and sold under their luxury marquee Soliad, the Wendover is the epitome of late 1980s technology and styling. Sharing much of its underpinnings with the smaller LeGran, the larger, sleeker coupe body allows for a powerful transverse-mounted V8 engine to be fitted in place of the factory standard V6. The LeGran’s 4 cylinder engines can also be fitted, and all engine options have superchargers available to boost power. The Wendover features advanced mono-leaf rear suspension, allowing for the installation of a rear differential to transform the vehicle into a snappy, responsive handling machine.

    Nestled in the luxurious, comfortable interior is the latest and greatest high-tech digital dashboard; the Wendover Information System, or WIS. Futuristic gauges and easy-to-read display can keep the driver constantly aware of everything they might need to know. The Wendover received a face lift in 1992, adding flip-up headlights, even sleeker, more modern styling and a lightly updated interior. Unable to recapture the initial popularity brought on by Bruckell’s deal with the Belasco 400 to make the Wendover its official pace car, production stopped in 1995.

    Despite its odd weight and size, the Wendover is considered by many to be an excellent performance car given the right modifications, and has been used for everything from track racing, rallies, hillclimb time trials or even demolition derbies. We hope you run the storied Wendover through this entire gamut of activities, and much more!

    I am in love with the FATT already I know its based off KITT from Knight Rider (1982) but damn I love it, I just wish it had a turbine engine in it though, thats apparently what powered the original car got somewhere over 200mpg and a top speed of somewhere around 300mph too...but this one if you get the 3.06:1 gears in it is good for at most 200mph

    Top tip don’t use the nodegraber at the back or your game crashes sometimes!
    EDIT found out whats causing it to crash my game its the things that hold the axles on to the body

    few bugs
    the description for the "base" wendovers says 4 speed auto despite it having a 3 speed
    the floor gear selector says the gears go park, reverse, neutral, overdrive, drive, 2, 1 despite overdrive not being a thing, meaning they dont line up (please can we get overdrive gears)
    this isnt a bug, more of a question - why is the FATT the only model to contain the centre console manual shifter, the other manuals are all floor shifters? personally id think a luxury car would have a console shifter and swaps would be floor shifters

    Any one else have the issue with resetting the car and you can see the frame lines when the car is moved to a different position.
