Also watch out for the new Phoenix III being launched too. All that to look forward to in the next couple of days!
#Press day announcement
Ok, it is press only day here at Geneva, So we at Galt decided to give some more information. Some of you may have been wondering why the 2016 Riviera was still being sold this far into 2017. Well here is your Answer, the rumors are false that the Riviera is cancelled, instead, we were working hard on a whole new platform for 2017. It is Sleek, Fast, and aerodynamic, and the numbers prove it, all while remaining Rear wheel drive. I managed to convince the higher-ups to reveal a production base model to you guys today.
As you can see, this definitely is the base model. I wasn’t allowed to disclose the Engine yet, However i am allowed to open it up and reveal the starting price. As can be seen, even the interior screams base model, a lot of generic cloth and Fabric, a manual Transmission, yadda yadda yadda. However this does result in a low starting MSRP of only $14,520. Now in closing of this announcement, There are two things I can say. 1: Those cars you have been seeing being transported or sitting behind Galt dealerships with all those Tarps over them are indeed these new Riviera’s, they Will be ready to be sold as soon as we do the official reveal for the Lineup. I cannot say in which order it will be revealed though. The 2nd thing i have to say is yes, this is the Platform the Fiend is on, It’s official name is the Riviera Fiend
(Now that I’m home and on my computer I can actually do a proper reveal)
With the introduction of the MS Argonaught, Emperor Emerald, and Emperor K series, MAC gives you the MS R55 LMP concept. It comes equipped with a 5.5L naturally aspirated DOHC crossplane V8 sourced from the MAC 56L8 V8 that produces 816 HP, propelling it to 60 MPH in 2.5 seconds. Equipped with a carbon fibre chassis and body, and pushrod suspension in both front and rear makes the R55 a fierce competitor.
As of right now, there is no decision of whether or not MAC will compete in any WEC races.
Changing the Small Sport Market Forever
The Hodan Rizun Concept
A mid-engined chassis, with a small, 220hp Inline 3 engine at the heart.
We took our liberties, pushing the boundaries away from the current ideals, and went back to what made these cars enjoyable.
Lightweight, affordable fun for anyone involved.
Pushrods front and back, and full aluminium within, this puts the weight at slightly over 930kg. With a 220hp Inline 3 at the core, she is a fun and maneuverable weapon. More indepth information soon, along with some more angles.
STAY TUNED TO #HodanGeneva17 FOR MORE DETAILS.
An advantage by technology?
Audi is that you?
you’ve posted a DOHC, not a SOHC, you donut.
A txt from DSDR Ceo Noble Romeo to Gavin.
Gday Gavin mate hows the Alpine weather?
Just a quick question. We have a couple of our French customers heading to Geneva this year and are huge fans of yours, they have asked DSDR if there is anyway that we could perhaps setup a meet and great? They just want to have lunch with you and maybe have you drive thier cars? One owns a DSDR Maesima 384, and the other owns a modified historical Erin that was purchased feom DS5.
The other question I had for you mate was, before everyone packs up DSD would like a photoshoot with all of the sub 100k sports coupes in the same categorie as the 'Toga and a photo of all the super mini/city cars?
Cheers mate enjoy the swiss spring.
Noble Romeo DSDR ceo
May EADC join in? We’ve got our classic rally cars hanging around, with not much to do…apart from having some fun around the Alps. Think of it as a joint fan meet up for two companies so enthusiasts can share experiences and drive around in each others cars. We’ve even brought along our main driver for WRC, so he could take fans for a spin in some of our cars.
Under the bonnet, expect a development of the current model’s 2.0-liter i-VIC TURBO with a redline of 7000RPM delivering up to 310HP/410Nm via a six-speed manual transmission, which should see it lower its 0-100km/h time to 5.4 seconds and raise its top speed to as much as 275km/h.
The new Type-R also claims to lose as much as 50kg and a more rigid chassis to handle it hardcore performance , only available in FWD.
To U.S buyers , Saminda has confirmed that it has no intention in selling the Type-R in the States as the C3 Spec-V is already competitive over there and is uniquely only for the U.S market.
Thank you for your requests on these ideas, you’ll be glad to hear I’m interested. I’m tagging in the editor of S.A.M. and the general email for the auto show crew to keep them updated.
So what are we thinking here? Schedule an afternoon to go and do stuff basically? Start off with some lunch and then head out for some driving perhaps, the DSDR fans and EADC crew can all meet up with the cars and then we’ll take it from there.
I already have a day of driving some EADC rally cars booked for next week, so this will be a chance to drive some more of them and even give the fans a chance too. Either way, I’d be very interesting in doing some writing for this.
Regarding the photoshoots; I’m assuming you mean the ‘Tauga’ when you say ‘Toga’? While I’m keen to get a go in that, I don’t think its quite in the same league as the sports coupes we’ve seen released at the show so far, though I am very interested in doing a photoshoot with them if Miller, Grandea and Garou are too.
With the supermini’s and city cars, would that just involve the ones released at this years show or the ones currently availible on the market in general?
I look forward to all of this!
Maesima Motor Corporation introduces a refreshed Devina for the 2017 model year, offering updated styling with customer-focused technology and features. The Devina stands at the vanguard of our 2017 Geneva Auto Show exhibit. The refreshed features a more distinctive front fascia and all-new LED lights from and rear, 16" alloy wheels, Devina 's new look further enhances the vehicle’s signature styling. And when mated to a standard 1.4-liter Gasoline Direct Injection ActivBoost engine, the formula comes together to deliver a vehicle that both looks and feels compelling while also remarkably efficient. Devina’s acclaimed styling, crisp handling and spacious interior won’t break the bank either, as 2017 Devina pricing will start at just $14,300.
Stay tuned for the full exhibit
WARNING THAT’S A FUCKMASSIVE POST
17:00 (5 PM), Airborne Automotive stand, Geneva Motor Show.
There are 4 car places occupied, standstill is not open yet. All the spectators are waiting for official opening of Airborne’s stand. At 17:20, it finally opens with classic S4 on stand, new Alphas: standard ones, that are coupe, sedan and estate named Gamma (except Alpha Estate name in Italy due to Lancia’s copyright reasons) and sports coupe named Alpha Clubman which is replacing legendary Synth Clubman after 21 years of Clubman name’s absence.
After ten minutes Airborne’s CEO walks on the scene, waves to everyone as he everytime does and begins speech:
Hello people! I guess you’ve went here because you want to see what we have to offer on this stand. Well, today we’ve got one classic beauty (points at S4), but I’ll tell you about it a little later. Now let’s get to the bomb of the show: Alpha Clubman!
CEO: This specific car was initially scheduled to be launched with first generation of Alpha from 2014, but overall since the car was pretty moderate it wasn’t a good platform for the Clubman due to rigidity stuff and fact that the car couldn’t handle good engine at all. When we were designing second-gen Alpha we thought also about possibility to make sportier versions of it. And there we go, there’s the Clubman. Daily-drivable, can be regulated in many matters - don’t worry, if you get one you can adjust everything if it comes to suspension and aero, data shown here is data for default “preset”, let’s name it like that. Engine wise, we took our freshly-developed 3.4 litre direct injection V6 unit that was mounted in S340 C1 Concept first and gave it some power. Final dyno test shown that the car has 340 hp, that is 26 more than S340 C1’s engine.
Now let’s go and compare it with it’s legendary precedessor: Synth Clubman from years 1991-1996. For first, Alpha has better fuel economy. For second, it’s more aerodynamic, for third: it’s better than ever. End. Let’s jump to standard Alphas.
Alpha ST Sedan. ST stands for standard - it has all normal interior, new 2 litre turbocharged economical engine. Just a car for corporations. Note that new Alpha sedan is actually bigger than outgoing model.
This is the Alpha Estate in Italy or Gamma anywhere else. Just a wagon version of the Alpha sedan, this car is more like family oriented. Same 2 liter engine and construction, just additional weight and space.
Alpha coupe for midlife crisis guys and fresh drivers who want to get at least some sporty feel from their car.
At the very end, 1981 Airborne S4. The unit we’ve brought was built in 12/1980 and it’s labelled as Test Car #7. It has unused wheel arch design for easier brake changing and better cooling, but along with some ideas this was scrapped. You can see that the car went here on Porsche Fuchs wheels. Hell, it even has some Porsche plates on the body! The reason is because S4 started as Airborne’s re-entrance into GT market after 1973 collapse and the company asked Porsche for cooperating again like they did with Mirage mass-produced model. But back to S4 - this car was built on unused body of 930 Carrera Flatnose, which wasn’t even presented to public and our construction actually was built in approx. 330 units before going out of scene in early 1983.
The Airborne S4 has some luxury additions but it’s also pretty narrow and can be deadly in uxperienced hands. It can also scare people… (CEO looks somewhere else, laughs and shouts) Gavin, I’m looking at you! How was the journey? (laughs again)
Okay, back to stuff that may interest you. It’s nothing new, so I’ll reminder: three liter V6 with Bosch mechanical injection generated 227 hp and that could launch the car to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds and S4 could reach 257 km/h. It was also the first and last rear-engined car of post-1973 Airborne.
Stay tuned for reveals during next days and feel free to watch the expo! (drops the mic)
2017 Evgenis Nemean
A new standard has been set in the premium supermini segment, with the brand new Evgenis Nemean which will offer new levels of customisation within one of the most upmarket packages. All this while following the motto "Premium. Standard."
The Nemean continues the trend recently offered on all recent models from the Evegnis lineup, including the lightning-bolt LED strip defining the lower section of the headlight cluster. This LED strip serves the dual purpose as our newly introduced sweeping indicator, to be featured as standard on all future models, and these indicators feature on the rear of the car as well. The prominent Evgenis badge, located in the centre of the grille remains, albeit a more circular design for this model. In true Evgenis fashion, we’ve kept the design clean and simple, without coming across as basic.
As mentioned previously, our main design focus was to offer a heavily customisable vehicle, key to this segment. Alloy wheels are fitted as standard across the range, with a multitude of design options being available from 15" to 18". Paint choices are all metallic as standard, something only normally offered on the most upmarket of vehicles, but this car can be customised in one of thousands of possibilities, thanks to the different choices of contrasting roof colour, and the introduction of our new Evgenis Custom Collection, where you can specify exactly what shade you would want your car in.
The Nemean is available with our full range of 1.2-litre petrol engines, ranging from 80 bhp to 120 bhp, with only the latter being available in North American markets, as well as the full range of the new 1.5-litre 3-cylinder turbocharged diesel engines, also ranging from 80 bhp to 120 bhp. Thanks to the car’s relatively low kerb weight, aided by the usage of aluminium in the construction, performance is brisk, with the 1.2T 120 being capable of covering the 0-100 kph sprint in under 9 seconds.
These engines are paired to a 6-speed manual as standard in all markets, with an optional, fine-tuned, 8-speed ZF autoamatic gearbox being available, unheard of in this category.
Of course, efficiency is key in this category, and we have worked hard to offer a competitive package in this area. The 1.2T 100 is capable of 5.2l/100km in mixed, real-world driving, 4.8l/100km on the highway at 120 kph and getting an incredible 3.7l/100 km on the European cycle. We are also proud to announce that the 1.5-litre diesel in its base form is the first diesel vehicle in its class to obtain a sub-3l/100km rating.
On-board technology has always been of the upmost important at Evgenis, and even the smallest of packages don’t go without our latest offerings. As standard, a 6.5" TouchPoint 2.0 touch-screen infotainment system is fitted, which can control almost all of the cars main fuctions, including audio, phone, navigation (if added), and climate controls, with an upgraded 9" TouchPoint Pro system being available with the addition of Apple Car Play and Android Auto as standard (optional on the 6.5" system). 4G connectivity is fitted as standard across the range, being free for the first 3 years of usage, and automatic emergency callout being available for free for life.
Safety technology is also important, particularly in small packages like these which will be used in more urban environments, meaning automatic emergency braking is fitted as standard, working at all speeds and against both other vehicles and pedestrians. The car can also detect inevitable collisions and prepare the cars safety features to deploy at optimal times.
The customisation doesn’t end on the inside of the vehicle either, with there being multiple choices of seat designs, colours and upholstery, steering wheels, inserts and even surrounds for certain elements such as vents. The design is logical yet quirky, reflecting the youthful look of the exterior. This also means that, thanks to the infotainment system, the centre console can be cleaned up, with a minimum number of buttons, with only some audio controls and climate controls keeping a physical form.
Interior quality is something most manufacturers use heavy cost cutting measures on a car of this category, but we’ve made sure that all surfaces are nice to touch and the whole thing is put together in an incredibly solid way to prevent any unwanted creaks from surfacing.
Small cars must have enjoyable handling, and we have made sure that this is the case. The biggest gripe with most modern cars is the lack of steering feel, and with the Nemean we have made sure that we use as little electroncial assistance with the steering in order to maintain the most natural and responsive feel to it. Grip levels are exceptional, and thanks to the low weight we believe we have made a properly fun car to drive. This being said, we also want to make sure that the ride is comfortable, and thanks to the stiff structure we’ve been able to use a softer suspension setup without upsetting the handling. Adapative suspensions are available as an option, meaning even the driving dynamics are customisable.
Available in all markets in Summer/Autumn 2017.
UK pricing starting from £14,495
EU pricing starting from €14,995
US pricing starting from $15,495

#Another model joins the Baltazar RS range - presenting the Kilimanjaro RS.
######Credits to @titleguy1 for the photoshop
Powered by the same 2.0 inline 4 turbo engine found on the Quasar RS, producing the same 325 hp, which power all four-wheels via the same 7-speed twin-clutch gearbox, the Kilimanjaro RS is the car for those who need practicality, yet also want a fast car.
How fast? 0-100 in 5.3 seconds fast. Enough to get the kids sick in the morning, that’s for sure.
The RS comes with 19" wheels, designed to give extra kerb appeal, if not extra kerb proofing. The interior packs a 8.5" infotainment with satnav and bluetooth.
All of this for just $30,050.
