    It's not an exact copy, probably just inspiration, no parts are directly copied

    the ibishu dove used a shrunk H-series fascia.
    the Pre-facelift D-Series is inspired by the ford f150 "bullnose" front end.
    completely different parts.

    the fact that there are two different ibishu doves (one based off of the pigeon and the other is based off the d series)
    is confusing lmao

    I actually kind of hope for a V6 as well, as there isn't a V6 in the vanilla BeamNG. Multiple V8s would also be good. Personally I want a supercharger in the game just to hear the whine.

    Nice. It looks like new car will be RWD (with probably AWD option?) based on new post in Development media.

    Yeah, because if you see the wheel slip graph in the video, it only shows the rear wheels so that's why it will be RWD.

    Ok so what versions ( aftermarket non factory do you think we will get with new car ) it's hard to judge. As we know nothing about it.

    But probably a race version. Maybe a cheaper less powerful race and a full on rave version.

    Also a hill climb version.

    Probably no demo derby version


    I bet a cop version.

    And depending on cost a taxi version. ( Lol imagine a luxury super sedan taxi lol .)


    Any other ideas?

    I'm starting to think the new vehicle isn't any known brand we have considering the teases we have so far.

    i'm still sticking with the theory of it being a grand marshal successor, the body resemblance to the omega is just too damn close.
    considering how frequently US manufacturers shuffled through names, it's not inconcievable for it to be an as-of-yet unseen gavril trim name. Alternatively, it could also be a burnside.

    At least we know that it is rear-wheel-drive (RWD) drivetrain, and that (in my humble opinion) should mean that there will be no front-wheel-drive (FWD). At best, RWD and AWD.

    Regarding the configurations - I don't really see it as a taxi (it could be, if it looked much older), unless it is in the style of German taxis that have a lot of new Mercedes Benzs in their fleet.

    Besides that, it is still too difficult to know what it is. We do know that it is RWD and a typical full-size sedan - it could be Korean, German, American, Italian, Japanese, etc. RWD and a full-size sedan still doesn't narrow the options.

    I think the sounds are great as they are, especially the engine sounds. Even if some gasoline Inline-4 powered cars (like the Hirochi Sunburst and the 4-cylinder modern ETKs) seem to sound older than they actually are.
    As for the size, I'd like to see the dimensions of each car written in its infobox.
    I'd also like to see the various different engines in a car have different physical sizes as well, instead of only being defined by their weight, their displacement and their power/torque curves. For example, the two Inline-4s and the two V6s of the LeGran seem to have exactly the same physical dimensions, even if they have different displacements (2.2 vs 2.5 Inline-4, 3.3 vs 3.8 V6). Same goes for the 2.4 and 3.0 Inline-6s of the ETK I-Series and the Flat-4 engines of the Autobello Piccolina (1.1 vs 1.3 vs 1.5 F4) and the Hirochi SBR4 (2.0 vs 2.5 F4).
    And this is even more apparent in the V8 engine choices for the Gavril vehicles because the displacement differences are greater between each other (4.5 V8, 291ci FleetPower V8, 313ci TurboFleet V8, 5.5 V8, 353ci SuperThrust V8, 6.0 Turbodiesel V8, 6.9 V8, 423ci MegaThrust/UltraThrust V8). It can't be logical for the 6.9/423ci V8 engines to be the same physical size as any smaller V8 engine below them.
    I was reading the Devblog about the modular meshes of the Cherrier FCV engines and thought "Trimming or extending the mesh to make either a 3-cylinder or a 5-cylinder out of a 4-cylinder is great but what happens when we have engines with the same amount of cylinders but with different displacements?".
    Something to think about.

    i4, i6, v8, and perhaps a v10?

    If it is American, it could very well be a Taxi too, with steel wheels and a ram bar up front! And (why not) a separating panel behind the front seats!

    The car seems to be a high end vehicle judging by the size and design, meaning it most likely as more complicated engineering and electronics, which, if broken, would be expensive to replace. That, coupled with the FR layout that leaves less cabin room and is less fuel efficient, would make it a very surprising choice for a fleet vehicle.

    An Inline-4 is out of the question in my book.
    I'd say a V6 and some V8s, both NA and Supercharged, are certain for this car. And since the car seems fairly new chronologically, I also expect the engines to be coupled to a modern multi-speed automatic transmission.

    So, basically the engines from a Dodge Charger. The displacements would probably be different as to not get some sort of infringement, but yeah. I think it would be like a 3.7 V6, 5.3 V8, and a 6.0 V8 and a 6.3 V8 supercharged.
