It was either DOHC or Pushrod
Pushrod would be realistic for the era, but I’m not sure you could get that much power from it.
DOHC 4-pots were occasionally seen back then, but anything over 2.5L with DOHC or even SOHC would be highly unrealistic.
Ekhm… Alfa Romeo, Jaguar, Aston Martin/Lagonda? Those were straight sixes, but still over 2.5, all DOHC. I’d say that anything quad cam in that era would be quite unrealistic (in the end Maserati started making series road cars with a DOHC V8 just a few years later).
Yeah, I should’ve specified 4v
Well the brand is mental so…
Developed in 1982, the Atlas Racing Team #002 LM056 was entered into the 24 hours of Le mans. The LM056 was the successor to the LM038 and saw 2 wins in its season. The 3.0L Flat 12 was replaced by a 3.2L twin turbocharged Flat 8 for the 1982 season.The signature magnesium wheels were carried over, because they worked so well and were still extremely light, so it was easier to keep them instead of investing additional budget on developing new rims. The new Aluminum monocoque and Fiber glass tub were extremely light, bringing the weight to 1850lbs, which was 47 pounds lighter than the preceding LM038.
the engine, the LM32 DE TT motor was an entirely new development using the underpinnings of the LM30 DE Flat 12 that preceded it. Using a new Aluminum casting technique, a lighter block and heads were made. The Turbochargers were made out of a combination of alumium and light weight steel(mostly used on the surface, with the core being made from aluminum). They made 15 psi of boost, which helped the engine to produce 610 horsepower and 436 lb-ft of torque.
The LM056’s career had 2 1st place wins, 3rd, 7th, and 9th place finishes in various races. Th LM056 was eventually replaced with the LM064 for the 1984 season.
1982 Atlas LM056 Atlas Racing Team(A.R.T) #002
Engine: 3.2L Flat 8 Twin Turbo DOHC Horsepower: 610hp @ 7500rpm
Torque: 436 lb-ft @ 7200rpm Top speed: 190mph
Weight: 1850LB(dry) 0-60(MPH): 2.85s
(Note: stats won’t match in automation in regards to weight and 0-60 because it doesn’t allow for racing modifications in terms of race tires, straight cut gearing, and weight saving techniques(and its odd weight values)).

Great looking car!
Now we only need Flat 8’s and 12’s… (don’t link the FAQ I already know)
Thank you, I decided to make the LM056 to give my company some additional history and participate here at 2018 pebble beach.
I’d honestly like to do some Le mans racing with some of the other people here, so all companies can get some racing history perhaps if they had any. I hope they do some changes to the weight values, cause I have no clue how the numbers are made and aren’t realistic(sometimes).
That’s why I suggested race safety, though I think that everyone saying it would be broken has a good point.
I can imagine that it would be tough to get safe racing. The LM056 I made isn’t entirely easy to handle in BeamNG(though the handling in that game feels really weird at times, atleast compared to games like Forza where cars behave much more realistically) and I can easily see a bunch of crashes.
Hades Automobile Display
84 Years since the founding of Hades Automobile, and 70 years from the first production Hades.
2018 Marks a special year for us.
For this, we have something to show. That, however will come later.
For now, we have 3 influential models from the Past of Hades out on display.
Display Piece One: 1948 Hades V16 "Touring"
Entered by Étienne Laporte’s Son, Hugo Laporte into many Touring events from 1951 to 1956. The most famous of these was the 1952 Corso di Fruinia event.
The Car was a slightly modified V16, with much of the lavish interior removed, and a non-standard paint scheme applied.
It was less than a competitive racing machine, as it faltered to the same issues as the road car. However, it resides in the Hades Collection
Display Piece Two: 1986 Hades Lethe
The Lethe was a spectacular vehicle for its time. This vehicle put Hades into the more public light, with an automobile going much faster than any before it. Reaching an astounding speed of 433km/h just weeks after being shown at Geneva that same year.
The Lethe is not the most beautifully designed automobile, however it is functional. The Airbrakes on the rear assisting in slowing the vehicle down once it passes 250km/h.
This example is Lethe Number 1, the vehicle that set the famous speed record back in 1986.
Our Third presentation vehicle will be shown soon, a commemoration of the first Hades model produced, and a sneak preview at the next Hades model. Stay tuned.
Mosport Poseidon V16
In 2015 Mosport introduced an even crazier version of the Poseidon, one powered by a 9.7L twin-turbo V16 to replace the “modest” V12. With the engine producing 1156 hp and 1172 lb-ft of torque, the Poseidon V16 will sprint to 100 km/h in 2.2 seconds then go up to a top speed of 364 km/h. While it’s no top speed record holder, the Poseidon V16 will shine on the track. Its current track time on the Nürburgring is 6:52.68, putting it in the prestigious sub-7 minute club. This also makes it the fastest Mosport ever built.
Construction wise, the Poseidon V16 has not changed. The chassis and body are all carbon fibre and it has pushrod suspension on both axles. The aerodynamics have been improved, with a large wing and splitter being the obvious changes, while the interior has been stripped down some to reduce weight.
This example of the Mosport Poseidon V16 is currently up for auction at a bargain price. This is your chance to own a piece of Mosport history today.

2012 Aero HPC Monza Performante
This entry to the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is really just a taster for a new company I will be rolling out soon, so if you like it be sure to be on the lookout for a new company starting up. I’ve been building a lot of cars for it, but I need to get some actual lore and writing set up before I start rolling cars off the assembly line. Anyway, on with the show!
The Monza features a 500hp, 8700RPM 4.5L V10 coupled to a 7 speed DSG and can reach 190 MPH.
This was my first real attempt to get creative with the fixtures while maintaining an elegant design. Aside from the NSX taillights and wheels by I502K1s all the fixtures are stock. I think I did a decent job, but I’d be happy to get feedback, whether on this thread or in a PM.
Nice car, not a fan of the headlights though.
Thanks, I agree about the headlights. After doing the rear end the front looked kinda stock, but I don’t know what I would have done. Like I said, I tried sticking with stock assets, so it made it more of a challenge. I would have liked to create some sort of recessed square lights, but I don’t know of a good way to accomplish that without mods.
A classic 1964 Rennen Bellezza Futura Concept will be showcased at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours.
More information on the vehicle can be seen in the Rennen Historical Collection.
To mark the 60th anniversary of Vexata, the company is bringing two cars to Pebble Beach.
the company’s first production car, the 1958 Vexata 833.
This carefully restored model, serial number 8339060, will be displayed at Pebble Beach, along with our other exhibit, shown below.
Showcasing Vexata’s new innovative design language is the 2020 Nordwand concept hypercar.
Find us in the concept car section to see the Nordwand in person.
Shromet has unveiled the Dragon Vision Gran Turismo
An all electric race car with 1300 Horsepower, Shromet sources say the dragon VGT has been “A great source of inspiration for the 2019MY Dragon.” Though how much they drew inspiration, and whether or not the production dragon will be an EV is unspecified. Click the Image for more details.
