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).
