Got a question: Can you help me with the configurations list for my ETK P2-Series suggestion?
Will think about it, although the BV3 has taken my suggestion time until now.
Though I don't really get the point of the layout - sports car buyers usually prefer RWD when they want eeight balance.
Thanks for the info. I'll fix that to RWD/AWD.
Still, that's literally a K-Series - an SLK/Crossfire/Z4 style German roadster.
The sort of thing I'd imagine rear-engine FWD being fit into is some sort of car where the engineers were allowed to experiment. Something like a Previa, Twingo, idk...
Yeah, that was kind of the idea for the car - a experimental predecessor of the K-Series. The only predecessor we have officially is the Old Pessima, but that's more of a generational type predecessor than a model conversion predecessor (in other words, changing from one separate model to another separate model that shares similar characteristics).
I told you that Volga's dimensions were nowhere near executive class.
It was between the family car Moskvitch and luxury Chaika.
Moskvitch was compact.
I remind you that the Volga was bigger or the same size as the typical Euro executive (Opel Rekord, Ford Taunus, Citroen DS, etc.) of that time.
Volga was created to be like US cars, so it should be compared to them.
Then it's a fullsize, being quite close to the time's fullsize Chevies.
Sure, with Volga being 4770 and Chevies over 5000-5300 mm...
I have an idea for an older K-series that I haven't made yet,
The ETK K1 based of a Z1
Interesting... not sure that it should be called K1, but that's your choice (atleast for now).
2015 - present Legacy CX-Line - Lexus NX, Acura RDX, Infiniti QX50
Modern Japanese luxury, AWD, front engined compact SUV, sold internationally, but primarily in USA. It's based on Lexus NX, but with Acura RDX headlights and rear end, Infiniti QX50-styled grille and side line. Interior would be like Infiniti's but with Lexus NX steering wheel and gauge cluster. It would have 4 trim levels, including R sports one. All trim levels would be richly equipped and would have various safety systems. There would be some versions such as police, etc. It would have 3 engine choices, 2 petrol and 1 hybrid: 1.9 Turbo I4 with 240 HP, 2.2 I4 with 225 HP and hybrid engine with combined 205 HP. Transmissions would be 7-speed manual and CVT automatic. Dimensions would be similar to all 3 above mentioned cars.
-Why it should be added?
-We don't have any modern luxury SUVs, nor modern Japanese and compact SUVs, nor hybrids.
1937-1938 Ibishu Cargo Automobile - Nissan Van, Dodge Airflow
It is a...
late 1930s Japanese limited production semi-cabover vehicle. Mainly based off the Nissan Van, but with the front and wheels of the Dodge Airflow.
Why do we need it?
Because we don't have any pre-war vehicles, nor do we have any Japanese vehicles older than post-war (basically the Miramar).
SMA AG/AH (1970-73 (AG), 1973-77 (AH)).
It is a...
...1970s French coach in 2 generations. Ladder frame, 3-axle configuration, rear engine RWD, drum brakes, 6-spd manual. The older model uses leaf springs and a 7.8 210 HP I6 diesel, while the newer one has air springs and an 8.3 235 HP engine, but both share the same frame, gearbox and floorpan. The older one is mostly inspired by the CBM TD5, with a Volvo B59 front end, while the newer one would be based on the CBM LMC12 with a Kutter 9 front end.
Configs (shared ideas between the two models):
Base - Equipped with a paintjob for a Pyrenees-area coach company and premium brake pads.
School - As above, but with a school bus paintjob.
Beater - Equipped with a Polish coach company's paintjob, worn suspension, brakes with basic pads and cheap tires.
Great suggestion, we really need some Euro vehicles.
2016 - present Hirochi Beaver 775SXR -
Yamaha Grizzly 700EPS/SE, Can Am Outlander 450
Modern Japanese AWD ATV. It's based on above mentioned Yamaha, but with Can Am Outlander 450 front end. It would have many versions, including: police, fire&rescue, border patrol, versions with and without luggage boxes, versions with alloy wheels, tracked version, etc. It would have electronic power steering system, as well. Only available engine would be 723cc 4-stroke DOHC with CVT automatic gearbox. Dimensions would be similar to Yamaha and Can Am.
-Why it should be added?
-We don't have any ATVs and it would be good offroad vehicle, more capable than existing ones.
Nice suggestion, but isn't 500X already copyrighted?
