    The devs said this was added in as a joke. It has also been in for months now.

    Hmm.. I'm looking at those revolving beacons, I'm wondering if we'll see those in amber too - I'd like to have a pair of those to put on top of the T-series.

    Along that same line, I'm surprised to not see the '60s-'70s style non-enclosed lightbar represented in some capacity.

    I hope there is a super base variant of the "new" (updated) covet that will have the engine out of the pigeon (i4 or i3), no back seats or hubcaps, and a 3-speed manual tranny

    me to. It will be cool to see some new engines. Like a inline 3. Possibly a MEGA basic inline 2! lol


    As well possibly a V6 ( maybe in the rear )

    I cant wait to make ( if we get sedan and said base engine ) The most basic sedan. Then added old paint ( or rusty ) and weld the doors and make a derby sedan :)

    I can see an I2 coming because in the files of automation there are sounds for it.

    I don't think that will be possible. Small I4 and I3 is fine but I2, I leave that to the bike and microcar.

    Fiat 500 is a smaller car while the Covet is too big for 2-cyl engine.

    3-Speed Manual without the Covet being made in 1965 is a bit wrong. Plus the existing base Covet engine (1.5 Inline-4 SOHC with Carburetor) is just fine for the car. The 1.3 Inline-4 you're talking about has ITBs while the 550cc Inline-3 was designed for a car half the weight of the Covet and is just too powerless for moving the Covet in a decent manner.
    No back seats means we're talking about a cargo version (after all, cargo versions of 3-door Hatchbacks were offered once) and that also means rear panels instead of rear windows. Only the absence of the hubcaps passes.

    The Fiat Panda also uses the TwinAir, and it's not that far from the size of the Covet, plus it makes 85 hp which is more than the 1.5 DX
    It could be passed off as a prototype ultra-eco engine that didn't quite work out due to technological limitations

    The Fiat 500 (and the Panda and the mk3 Lancia Ypsilon for that matter - all 3 of them were based on the same chassis) had the 875cc TwinAir Inline-2 from ~2010 to ~2016. In its turbocharged versions, it made 85 and 105hp, while it made 65hp in its only NA version. The Ypsilon was the heaviest of the 3 cars (at about 1.1 tonnes), the others weighed about a tonne, more or less.
    With that said, a modern European city car with a Turbocharged Inline-2 could definitely enter the BeamNG lore. :D

    The problem with an I2 is no sound samples for it, as cool as it would be it most likely won't happen

    The devs can add new samples. Like they did for the vivace when it came out.
    But with that being said. I don't think traces of some placeholder items ingame is always a great indicator for what is to come in the next update.

    Automation files, not BeamNG files
