2017 Zenshi Kamata (5th generation, XGN55)
The 5th generation Zenshi Kamata compact sports hatchback made it’s debut on a live stream Zenshi did over at its headquarters in Japan, only giving a brief viewing of it. For the 2017 Antyita International Auto Show, the XGN55 Kamata can now be viewed by the public, both inside and out.
In comparision to the more rotund XGN54, The XGN55 is considerably smaller in size. Lighter as well, as the base model has a coincidental weight of just 1234.5 kg, about 70 kg lighter than the outgoing generation.
Given the Shinka Design like many other new and current Zenshi models, the Kamata is given a more aggressive look that will for sure compliment the performance potential the “True Japanese Hot Hatch” has.
The base Kamata, like the older generations, will be equipped with the QS20GDA 2.0L I4 engine making around 176 HP. The 210 HP QS25GDA 2.5L I4 engine that can be found in the Altrea is also available as an option. These engines will be mated to a 6-Speed Manual standard, with 6-Speed AvanTec being optional.
Interior wise, the base model will have a cloth upholstered interior and standard leather wrapped steering wheel. Higher trims will have leather upholstery, power front row seats, and a Nakamichi™ sourced audio system.
This is also the second model in Zenshi’s lineup to introduce the D-ACT driving system, which carefully analyze’s the drivers parameters while driving: accelerating, braking, turning, and even shifting, and scores the driver accordingly once the car is set to N + Handbrake (Manual) or P (AvanTec). the first car to do this was the SF roadster.
No news of a Kamata GT-R has been reported to this day, but ZMD has already expressed a strong amount of interest in being involved with this hatchback.

Starting MSRP in Japan will be at ¥2,313,300.
The Kamata is more of a shooting brake than a hot hatch due to its rear-drive configuration, but there is not a trace of doubt that the new XGN55 will deliver the goods… I’d order mine in orange, with the more powerful engine, if I had the chance!

Zorg Takes Over Stalled AVD Project, Launches Production Version in Antiyita
Due to financial issues, AVD recently sold the rights to the Peregrine and its 5-liter V8, and the buyer was none other than the Zorg Motor Corporation, which developed the car further, even adding a 12-cylinder variant.
The resulting car, now called the Kuti, is offered in two trims. The ZS58 now boasts a reworked, more powerful version of the 5-liter V8 and wider front tires, as well as an electronically-controlled differential. Cooling capacity has been increased in accordance with the increased output.
The 12-cylinder version, the ZS65, is a more upmarket version of the base Kuti, and in addition to sharing the E-Diff with the ZS58, rides on 20-inch lightweight forged alloys wrapped in 305mm-wide tires front and rear. Both variants are on sale as you read this, and are available with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Other options include a lightweight sports interior (replacing the full leather trim offered as standard) and an extra set of semi-slick tires for track use.
Meanwhile, the Sotapanna 2.0, the little brother of the Kuti, remains unchanged from last year…
…as does the more powerful 3.0 trim. However, unlike the Kuti, the Sotapanna is exclusively available with a six-speed manual - at least for now. Zorg has not made a small FR coupe since the ZS36 ended production in 2009 (it was first introduced in 2000), and the Sotapanna should fill that void nicely; company execs have stated that it will compete primarily with WMD’s CBX6 and CBX8.

Anikatia has achieved an incredible record of growth and integration into high-tech modern world economy. It is considered to be one of the most successful to transitions from a socialist centrally planned economy to free-market capitalism. Four decades ago the GDP per capita was comparable with levels in the poorer countries of Africa and Asia.
This success through the late 1980s was achieved by socialist market economic reforms with close government & business ties, import restrictions, sponsorship of specific industries, and a strong labour effort. The world is now turning its attraction to Anikatia as it has identified as a market with huge untapped potential.
The number of vehicle sales was largely boosted by the governments’ stimulus policies for lifting market demand, which included tax cuts on small-displacement automobiles, subsidies for trade-ins and subsidies for farmers to buy vehicles.
The government’s continued support for the industry promises to fuel its rise for the coming years. The market is poised to accelerate again, supported by expensive cars, cheap cars, the government, and increasingly by electric cars. Anikatia will remain an exciting place for the car industry for a long time coming; the place to be and the spot to watch.
Northeast Asia is quickly rising as the world’s largest automobile producer and consumer at the same time. With more than 3.5 Mio. produced units (9 % cars, 7 % trucks and 3 % buses) and about 2 Mio. registered cars in 2009, the Anikatian automobile industry is an important customer for international suppliers.
International companies benefit from the sustained openness of the domestic market towards foreign products. The market share of import cars was 3,87 % in 2009. European manufacturers ranking on position two behind Asia with a market share of 38 % of imported cars.
Quality upgrades and attractive production volumes offer great chances for the international automotive supplier industry. With the increase in auto parts demand, the Northeast Asian region has become one of the world’s most vital markets.
Northeast Asia is rising as the world’s greatest cluster of auto parts Industries. The potential of this region is unlimited, considering the synergy effects displayed by the coupling of the technological and price competition of the four countries.
Key Region - Focus on Antiytia
Antiytia leads the way of the development of the country. The metropolis is the cultural and economic heart of the nation. Antiytia is an intriguing city that is transforming itself from the capital of the Mijwa Dynasty to a major centre for industrial, business, world trade, entertainment, transportation, and tourism in Anikatia and the world, especially in the field of commerce and culture.
It was the location of Antiytia at the delta of the Bajin, one of the most important river in Anikatia, which caused this fantastic rise. Today Antiytia shelters a massive beautiful harbour, is the capital, largest city and home to the most important stock-market in Antiytia the Anikatian National Exchange Group (ANEG).

#Baltazar Automóveis - press release
First and foremost, we would like to announce a unification in the naming strategy of our trim levels across new models. Given the good reception to the name Hydrogen in our Zeppelin sports car, the versions will now be named after chemical elements. The three spec level system will now be named as:
Nitrogen - base trim level
Tellurium - mid-range
Lithium - top-spec models
The names GT and RS for the sporty and ultimate versions will be mantained.
The first car to use this new naming system is the brand-new Quasar hatchback, which swiftly brings us to the main release.
#2018 Baltazar Quasar Hatchback
#####Credits to @titleguy1 for the photoshop
After the very successful launch of the Quasar sedan in the North and South American markets, winning several accolades and prizes, it is time for the hatchback model to be launched. This model is aimed squarely at the European market, the main buyers of this kind of bodystyle. The car will also be sold around the globe, including North and South America, Oceania and East Asia.
The car can be equipped with two different engines, in 5 states of tune, all equipped with direct injection. New to the Quasar range and shared with the Quark, the smaller engine comes as a 1.4 with 100 hp, a 123 hp 1.6 or a 1.6 Turbo with 150 hp. The other engine is the already familiar 2.0 unit found on the Quasar sedan, here in 202 hp guise, in the GT model, or 325 hp, as per the RS325 model, already shown in Detroit.
2017 Altrea Newman R (LZAZ50)
The Altrea Newman R based off the XAZ50 Altrea was introduced in the 2017 Tokyo Auto Salon a few months back, showing the performance potential that can be found within the midsize 5-Door sedan, thanks to ZMD.
The “Newman” in the high performance version of the Altrea is a reference to a French-British test driver ZMD had that helped them win multiple races in the 70s and 80s, Thomas-Mathieu Newman, who passed away in 1995. In 1996, Zenshi created the first Altrea Newman R, sporting the LZ3 MTE turbocharged Inline 6 motor with 276 HP and 302 lb-ft of torque. The Newman R line of cars are restricted to only the Altrea and Axia sedans.
Now, being shown in the 2017 Antiyita International Motor Show, is the final version of the 2017 Altrea Newman R. It looks near identical to the one in the TAS, just with more aero elements added to the car.
The LZ4-ACE R-MTE 3.0L Turbocharged I6 engine is a lot more tamer than the one shown on the prototype, making 422 HP compared to 535 HP. Despite the 113 HP decrease, the motor still doesn’t pull punches, launching the car to 100 KM/H in 4.1 seconds and bearing a top speed of 273 KM/H. Compared to other performance sedans in the market, the Altrea Newman R is considerably lightweight for a modern-day midsize performance sedan, weighing just shy of 1640 kg.
Standard equipment of the Altrea Newman R include power hybrid leather-cloth sports front bucket seats, a ZMD designed steering wheel, and a 6-Speed Manual. Optional equipment include leather upholstery, power sunroof, and a Nakamichi audio system. it is confirmed that the Altrea Newman R will be Manual Transmission only.

#An update from Gavin Anderson’s personal blog, A Motoring Man’s Meanderings…
The Arctic isn’t our only car to unveil for 2017.
But we figured the V8 would draw more interest than a small variety of inline-triples. However, we will unveil the full variety of the Sentry Compact and there will be test drives in both versions of the Sentry as well as in the Arctic.
Zorg plans to update at least some of its regular passenger car range for this year; stay tuned…
A relevant historical Monolith vehicle, the 1991 Artisan GA760 Turbo, powered by a 7.6L Turbocharged V12 producing 535hp, effectively the same powertrain of the 1980s M130 Dakar Trucks although detuned. It also has long-travel dual coil suspension front and rear with Raid spec shock absorbers and an integrated roll cage. 400 were built at a price equivalent to $226,486 adjusted for inflation.
