    Yep, I think I have to agree on this one, there seem to be 4 coils per side but ok, not the absolute entirety of the engine is visible. But it's certainly a V8, to the very least.

    As I already said. We didn't even get to see the panels. And I'm pretty much sure those would add 20/30cm to the length

    Isn't the DCT a worthy transmission to be put in a Supercar? Even normal Torque Converter Automatics are good enough for such an application these days! ;)

    Decided to attempt to recreate the photo with the bolide, seeing that it's a Civetta. One with body panels and one bare chassis.

    I combined the teasers we already got with the dimensions and proportions of this teaser. This is what I came up with:

    A v8 would be lame though in my opinion. There are so many in the game now and a v10 or v12 is completely missing. But im also counting only 4 header tubes and then they are connecting into the muffler. So i think its going to be a v8 sadly.

    With all of the complaining about this new car (that I, for one, am excited about because hey more cars), I REALLY want the devs to release like 10 updates adding no new elements to really put this community in its place.

    It looks great, devs. I love your work, FIX THE DAMN MEMORY LEAK.

    1. A Targa top is amazing. But I expect it to be fully operable with moving parts and linkages. It's a current-era convertible Supercar after all.
    2. It's the absolute first time we see Carbon Ceramics in BeamNG. Apart from the new Civetta, the Hirochi SBR4 TT S2 should also have Carbon Ceramics as should the Cherrier FCV Vivace S 410Q Arsenic and the ETK 856/K-Series ttSport/ttSport+ and any faster version that may appear with the remastering of the modern ETKs.
    3. The engine seems to be Naturally Aspirated because I see no intercoolers in the engine area. Intercoolers must be quite close to the engine area for quicker heat transferring and therefore better performance (just like in the Bolide). The only parts that may be looking like intercoolers lie in front of the front wheels but I don't think they serve any engine cooling purposes right where they are.
    4. Manuals are good but I'm not that much of a die-hard fanatic of them, so I definitely want to see a modern automatic transmission in this car. A DCT is the perfect choice for such a car due to its lightning-fast gearchanges and its Launch Control support. In fact, if you watch the steering wheel more closely, you'll see the left shift paddle. So the new Civetta is already certain to have an Automatic - I just hope it's a DCT unit and it's gonna have at least 8 gears. 7-Speed DCTs are already put into two vehicles in the game - the Hirochi SBR4 and the Cherrier FCVs - and a 6-Speed DCT (like the Hirochi Sunburst has) is out of the question because no modern car uses 6-Speed DCTs anymore.
    5. It looks like the Bolide chassis recipe will be evolved with this car because we see subframes for the front and rear ends. I was the one who mentioned the central tub to be made of carbon fiber because the lower door structure seems tall enough, the door sill area is quite high and it also has the characteristic rounded shape of a typical carbon fiber tub.
    6. There seem to be a couple of headers hidden behind the three exposed ones we see so, without excluding the possibility of the engine being a Flat-Plane V8, I'm pretty certain it is a V10 - and a Naturally Aspirated one too.
    7. I'm going to assume you're talking about the absolute lowest (and outwards-pointing) part of the tub to be playing the role of the scuff plate. Is this the right spot?
    8. Yes, the side intakes are going to be put behind the doors, the chassis members of that area clearly point this out.
    9. Two-tone colour options will look stunning in this car, I believe! Well done for your eagle vision! :cool:

    No problem about your English, you're perfectly understandable! ;)

    As for the name, I'm really hoping it's gonna be called the "Fulmine" because it's a great fit for such a car! :cool:

    Well, Its clear (At least for me) that the Civetta is mostly done. Yes, I know its just the bare body but the parts are textured and usually with modeling cars people start with the shell, than the inside/mechanics.

    I know all these Ferraris you showed are V8-powered but it would seem kinda dumb if I only mentioned Ferraris in my meme answer! :p;)

    I assume I'm the only person here who thinks this is a mix between a 720s and an Audi R8.
