Bonham is proud to present the all-new Fleming
The Fleming is available with two engine options, a 3.0 turbocharged straight-six with 500 hp, lifted from the Chaucer Brooklands, and a naturally-aspirated 6.0 V12, with 644 hp, courtesy of Agnelli-Dumont. Both engines use a 7-speed dual clutch automatic to send power to the rear wheels only.
We can also confirm this car will be the basis of the next GTE and GT3 Bonhams.
Further details and a whole photo gallery can be found on the Bonham page here.
Welcome to the Maine Motors Tokyo stand!
We’re proud to present two new models for the 2018 year as well as two classics we’ve brought with us! Let’s get started with the preview of our stand…and our reveals!
(The music that will play in the stand will be similar to this)
The new 2018 Imperator.
We said we would reveal it the 22nd but we have decided to reveal it before the press days instead.
The Imperator, our flagship luxury sedan. But from 2018 onwards, it will recover its early 70s heritage: a luxury muscle car. Front engined, and rear wheel driven, this car keeps the traditional formula, mated of course to a 5L V8, producing 406hp, or an optional 3.8L twin turbocharged V6, making 350hp. The V8 is mated to a dual clutch, 7 speed sequential transmission for optimal power delivery and sporty feel, as well as the convenience of an automatic mode. This will allow the car to go from 0 to 62mph in only 4.8 seconds.
But comfort is one of its strongest points. Finely clothed seats, with optional leather, a premium infotainment system, comfortably tuned suspension and advanced safety will make you feel right at home.
The car will start being sold in early 2018 for $45000.
Scorcher: our premium hatchback!
The new Scorcher will be offered with just as much comfort as always, with more tech, and in two trims! The 1.8 ‘Delirium’ trim, developing 115hp from a 1.8L inline 4 naturally aspirated engine, allowing the car to get 40 MPG, and the 2.0 ‘Dream’ trim, developing 135hp from a stroked variant displacing 2.0L, also naturally aspirated, getting 36 MPG. This car offers a mix of comfort, premiumness and fun driving.
The 1.8 Delirium will be offered with clothed seats and a touchscreen from $18000, and the 2.0 Dream, with leather seats and a complete infotainment system, from $22000.
Let’s give our classics some love!
We brought a classic from 1984! Let’s take a look at it.
A muscle pickup; the fusion of a fun muscle car and an utility vehicle. It was created to offer the best of both worlds. Powered by a 6.2L big block V8, with a single point injection system, it made a poor for the displacement 260hp. It was mated to either a 4 speed manual transmission or a 4 speed torque converter automatic. A comfortable leather bench seat can be found inside, as well as a nicely trimmed interior, giving it the Maine Motors premium touch.
It accelerates from 0 to 62 in 6.8 seconds, and tops out at 130mph. However, this car surprisingly corners considerably well if we keep in mind that the rear suspension is a solid axle attached to leaf springs: 0.95Gs (20m) and 0.93Gs (250m).
The Miller Automobile Company is proud to reveal to Tokyo, Japan, and the world, the new Miller J series hatchback!
The J series will be an affordable entry to the Miller lineup. It will feature either a 6 speed manual or a 9 speed automatic sending power to the front wheels with an AWD option available.
The first model up is for you lovers of the kei car category, the J-660. It features a 660cc turbocharged DOHC I3 making 63 HP and 60 lb-ft. of torque which is sent to the front wheels via the 6 speed manual only.
The next trim is the J-21 which will feature a 2.1L turbocharged SOHC I4 making 130 HP and 155 lb-ft. of torque. This trim will come with the 6 speed manual as standard with the 9 speed automatic as an option.
The J-34 will be the top of the line model. It will come with a 3.4L turbocharged DOHC I6 making 261 HP and 264 lb-ft. of torque. This trim will come with only the 9 speed automatic. AWD is available for this trim.
And of course we can’t have a Miller model without an MS variant. The MS will feature a tuned version of the 3.4L I6 producing 375 HP and 359 lb-ft. of torque which is sent to all four wheels via the 6 speed manual. It goes from 0-100 kph (because we’re in Tokyo) in 4.2 seconds and will top out at 287 kph.

The rear looks decidedly…
What’s the point of having a kei-car engine in a car that’s too big for that category?
The design of the car - great.
Under a ton of weight with a small 10000 rpm V10 - awesome.
The music - superb.
The look of that black F40 - sub-zero and properly 80s (and it’s worth noting that I don’t like Ferrari)
Because MAC is an American company and freedom can’t fit into packaging smaller than size gargantuan. Also, why not? #murica
While Airborne doesn’t do any official preview of their Tokyo cars just yet, Madoka Matsusaka herself uploaded a picture of unknown blue car on her Instagram account.

Reactor Research Inc. announces the world’s first mass-produced nuclear fusion engine, which will revolutionize energy generation forever. The i-Fusion powertrain is capable of covering 570.000 miles between recharges, and operates totally free of local emissions. It produces an equivalent of 140kw and needs no maintenance. The i-Fusion range will soon replace the Compaq-iQ series. Larger powertrains with up 15000kw of equivalent power for marine applications are also planned. The first product to reach Showrooms is the F-One compact estate, starting at $19,950.
Finally, here is the new Montes mid-engined 6 cylinder sportscar.
The new RXS-6 generation, like his predecessor, uses a carbon fiber-made body and chassis, with 40% more stiffness than the older one, and changes the old 4.0 inline 6, to a new 3.5l V6. More powerful and lightweight, It gives a better weight distribution, as a lower gravity center.
Available with 2 gearboxes (6-s manual and MDC), and 3 trims: standard, MRP, and MRP Turbo.
Coming soon, more info.

Back in Japan once more, on the agreement with my boss that I don’t go and partake in some rather illegal street racing. No, this time, it’s for the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, the motor show for any company with even the slightest interest in the huge Japanese Domestic Market.
The teasers and reveals have been in full swing, and with the show starting on Wednesday, there’s little else to do other than take a dive in and see what we can expect at this year’s show.
Baltazar have announced a history-packed display as well as a proper reveal of the updated 2018 Quark. More to follow. Airborne followed suit with a similar announcement of two all-new designs, with only one picture of a car to go on so far for details.
The very, very keen AL Autos have posted a large number of teasers through to my inbox, including one of a car call the “Anguis”. It looks very angry and sounds odd, no matter how you pronounce it.
Naturally, on home turf, Saminda poked their heads through the door once more with another concept. We’re still not even sure if they’ve actually released the C2KR, and what about that C5KR from a few months back? Still,
the rumour mill is firmly focused on this car being the reason the Saminda-Maesima sports car project fell through. Drama!
Merciel have teased a new sports coupe-sedan called the JR4. Nothing else to report now other than, like all performance cars these days, it’s blue. It also has a spoiler.
Bonham unveiled the new Fleming, and naturally the whole of SW1 London gasped in shock that they didn’t already have one on order. I don’t really need to report on this do I? It’s another V12 super GT car made in England. Of course it’s going to be good, you dim wit!
Maine launched two new cars, the Imperator and Scorcher. The American brand are updating their luxury Imperator sedan with “70s heritage”, including a big V8 engine choice and a healthy dose of new looks. It’s got just enough vulgarity to make you go “well it must be American”, but also doesn’t actually look that bad either. We can confirm that the entire UK fandom of Bruce Springsteen and Americana music are already asking when it’s coming to the UK.
As for the Scorcher, the new, narrow looks make it feel a bit mixed, though the back certainly has some flair. And of course, being an American supermini, the engine’s are way too big for their own good.
Speaking of American cars, Miller released a car that I’m betting on winning this year’s “Most Perplexing Automotive Ass” award outright. I mean seriously, what is going on at that rear end? It’s like a the original Renault Megane had a love child with some generic after-market lights from the early 00s. Called the J-Series, it’s a very weird looking car, made weirder still by the offering of a 9 speed auto box. Eh? And I’m sorry, but 2.1l of i4 engine should easily be able to make way more than 130 hp. I am thoroughly unconvinced by this whole car.
Hodan announced a new concept - the EV Concept - and a new, homologated version of the Rizun sports car. The EV is a really good looking electric sports coupe kinda-thing that promises the equivalent of 400 hp, though you’ll only get 100 km of driving when it in that power mode. Still, it should a very short lived 100 km.
The Rizun will now be entering into the European GT4 series from next year, with a tastefully homologated version of the car. The big rear wing really just completes the look perfectly.
A whole new company, Reactor Research Inc, have announced a sub-$20k nuclear fusion powered car. That’s right, even JET in Oxfordshire couldn’t have predicted this. A 570k-miles-per-recharge car with, apparently, “no maintainence” required for the micro-fusion engine. How does it work? No idea. The car it’ll be making it’s debut in, the F-One, is compact estate car, making it very accessible indeed. It seems like a miracle. It seems almost too good to be true…
Montes’ new mid-engine sports car, the RXS-6, has been revealed. The V6 powered relaunch of this carbon-fibre constructed machine looks pretty darn fine, with clean styling and some very non-Alfa tail lights that look sweet. More to follow.
Naturally, with the recent release of Gran Turismo Sport, there have been a few Vision GT cars pinned for the show. Kimura revealed a V10 powered, 711 hp, international-collaboration car that seems to be pinned as a major hint at what we can expect from the company’s sportier cars and especially their racing cars in the come years. Contendiente have given us the Esperanza Vision GT 2020, which certainly gets marks for being tasteful, purposeful and yellow. Better still, it’s powered by algae-produced gasoline, with hints that Conte will be pursuing this fuel source in the future.
Well then, it certainly seems the motoring world has learned from its catastrophic teaser period in the build up to the Frankfurt Auto Show, which is good. Roll on Wednesday!
