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.
Turbina’s first proper sports car, the 1955 Torpedo.
Pushing 427 ponies and 462 torques all to the rear wheels from a 6666 cc V12 made from two bolted-together inline sixes, it sold surprisingly well and Turbina’s factory couldn’t keep up. Only 93 examples were completed until it stopped production in 1957. The Torpedo wasn’t revived until 1966.
Chassis 000 will be appearing at this year’s Concours d’Elegance.
A day prior to the main event at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Rennen unveils the Bellezza Futura Tribute Concept.
More information on the vehicle can be seen in the Rennen Automotive Thread.
TSR in Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance, Part 1
This is the latest generarion of the TSR Kansai.
The 2019 TSR Kansai GT equipped with the Premium package
The TSR Kansai is now on it’s 5th generation. The latest Kansai is now using a lightweight carbon fibre unibody to reduce weight. It also uses a new low drag and aerodynamic body to decrease fuel consumption and to make it faster. It is also more beautiful to look at. The GT is also equipped with the Matrix design wheels, they will be in future passenger vehicles , that will surely attract people. With a newly designed 4.0 litre turbocharged Inline-6 producing 517HP in the GT (and can do 26.5 mpg) and the new top-of-the-line V8 found only in the NR5 models (naturally aspirated 5.3 litres for the Enthusiast Edition, turbocharged 5.0 litre for the Spec B and turbocharged 5.5 litre for the Spec A).

2018 Hades Elysium V16 d'Elegance Concept
Designed to celebrate 70 years of Hades Production models, the Elysium is the peak of Hades design and research. With Aerodynamic advances and technology taken from Prototype and Formula Racing, the Elysium is designed to be striking in every fashion.
The Elysium in it’s current form features a 4L Twin Turbocharged V16, sending all 742hp to the rear wheels. This allows an aero limited top speed of 332km/h, and a run to 100km/h in 3.1s
The Elysium is the expected base for the next production Hades to come next year.
We would like to present three cars out of its private collection for public viewing at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance. In chronological order:
The 1961 Epoch M20 S2600
The second generation to wear the M20 nameplate, this was the car that defined what the M20 series was supposed to be about. This vehicle featured Epoch’s first V8 engine, which was completely designed and built in-house. The heart of the car, the 2598cc (159cui) 60 degree V8 was conservatively rated at 99.5kW (133HP) and 188Nm (139 ft lbs), and could spin out to 6000 rpm. The S2600 managed a 0-100 time in 9.5 seconds, and was only subtly differentiated from the “regular” A2200 model through small V8 badging on the C-Pillar.
1967 Epoch Artemus 3000
Unveiled at the British International Motor Show at Earls Court, London, the Artemus 3000 was like no other Epoch ever released before, and was always intended to be something truly special. Effectively a birthday present to Epoch itself, the Epoch Artemus 3000 was released in a limited production run of only 200 examples. With a mid-mounted 2996cc (183cui) 60-degree OHC V8 (a tweaked version of the M20 V8), fed by a single 4-barrel carb and featuring a tubular exhaust manifold, the focus of the car was unquestionable. This car was both Epoch’s first recorded use of a monocoque chassis on a production car and first recorded use of double-wishbone suspension front and rear. All of this gave the Artemus 3000 a 0-100 time of just under 7.3 seconds and a top speed of 200km/h (124mi/h). The interior of the Artemus was also trimmed in quality materials and contained features and comforts that would not be out of place in a premium sedan, as well as offering a radio as standard.
1971 Epoch M30 Regalis Rex
Recently restored, this is one of the very few surviving examples of Epoch’s only ever muscle car. Featuring our first engine designed and built in the USA, the M30 Regalis Rex epitomises everything that made this automotive era special. The production engine came in at a monstrous 8619cc (526cui), with performance figures of 270kW (362HP) at 4500rpm, and 634.5Nm (468ft lbs) at 2400rpm, all whilst being unleaded-fuel compatible. Featuring a smooth and tough 3-speed automatic gearbox, the M30 Regalis Rex could reach a theoretical top speed of 233 km/h (145 mi/h), dispatch the 0-100km/h sprint in 7.1 seconds, and represented a time that could never be repeated.
Kyoki Siren Concept
Brand new hypercar with a whooping 1260Hp and still as comfortable as a GT.A thristy beast which drinks all the oil instantly.
Kyoki Siren is powered by a MASSIVE 9-Litre turbocharged V12.Producing a whooping 1260Hp and 1580Nm maximum.
The extensive use of aerodynamic parts and fine tuned suspension to Siren stable at high speed.And the Handmade high quality interior can give you a comfort driving experience you never have before.On top of that is the overwhelming performance.This is not a yacht(shots fired to bugatti),this,is a hypercar.

Cuz I don’t make classic cars so that’s it.
1951 Arkani T40
One of world’s first hypercars, With a pre-war 6.2L 250HP OHC V12 engine, It reaches a top speed of over 230km/h, And it’s very fast on straight line. Well, fast… as long as it’s a very long straight line.
With only 10 units built just before the manufacturer went to bankrupt, it is very rare to even find one at car shows like this.
(T40 Race spec parked at the Gasmean Racing Conservatory)
7 months later… a racing workshop received 1 of the 10 units of the T40. Due to it’s tuning potential, and superb handling, they turned it into a Proper racing machine. Well, Proper… except for the brakes… they cannot take the huge weight of the car…
The colors man, just wow it all looks so good. Easily the best you’ve made yet.
Zacspeed is exultant to announce that it is presenting a car at Pebble Beach. Many would expect a wild supercar or even a hypercar of some form, but we are not the people to fall into such tomfoolery. An occasion of this magnitude deserves much more than the prefixes “super” and “hyper,” hence why we took much time to develop this vehicle.
Performance sans compromise. This company was assembled around this concept, one where the pursuit man must maintain into the future is to soar beyond what is deemed the limits of human ingenuity and technology. By doing this, man will transcend such barriers. It is an ethos that the Zacspeed A1GP firmly concretizes through unyielding handling, biting brakes, and an avalanche of power.
Fifteen years after promising talks with the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile on supplying a power plant and Zacspeed’s upset by Zytec replacing it as the engine supplier for the upcoming A1GP series, the event still left many an employee disgruntled and disillusioned. The 3.0L V10, inspired by that of a Formula One engine, sulked in a glass display. Hopes of becoming an engine supplier in a class of open-wheel racing dissolved at the snap of the FIA’s fingers. There were dreams that the engine would be utilized in a road car, but those never came to full fruition. Frustrated at how the engine was never utilized in a car, the team unanimously voted to build a new version of this engine and shoehorn in a performance car with one goal in mind: performance sans compromise.
Immediately, the power plant was upped in displacement to 11.4L, and watermelon-sized ball-bearing turbochargers were installed. Five valves per cylinder was a mandate the employees were all too excited to hear; an aggressive cam profile, variable valve timing on all camshafts, and 2.77 bar boost furthered the joy’s overflow. Direct injection with one throttle per cylinder, a racing intake, and a fuel mixture richer than the suburbs further sent the boffins bonkers.
What will set everyone else in a frenzy will be the numbers: despite only revving to 8,700 revolutions per minute, it develops 3,119.4 horsepower and 2,417.6 lb-ft of torque. The former figure is the equivalent of 2.33 megawatts, verifying the drastic scale at which the engine was being built.
The magnesium, aluminum, and titanium motor, once fully assembled, fell into the middle of the car just ahead of the rear axle, and its power is transmitted to all four of the car’s 395-millimeter-wide points of contact with the ground. Unpainted carbon fiber enshrouds the engine and the chassis it is a stressed member of. The bodywork was slashed multiple times to open up vents for air and the intercooler, and out of it springs sharp cutlery which provides downforce rivaling, and sometimes trumping, prototype and formula cars. All assembled, the car weighs 3,412.9 pounds. This gives it a power-to-weight ratio of 0.914 horsepower per pound, or 2.015 horsepower per kilogram. It shreds 62 miles per hour in 1.9 seconds, crush 80-120 km/h in 0.6 seconds, vaporize the quarter-mile in 7.62 seconds, and thrash the standing kilometer in 14.23 seconds while only topping out at 212 miles per hour. We didn’t forget about stopping from speed, either; that 80.38 foot braking distance comes courtesy of meaty carbon-ceramic brakes finished in red calipers and trapped behind carbon wheels with red trim.
Standing as a testament to the dedication of these engineers to this magnum opus, the base tune for this car is designed to fly around the Nürburgring Nordschleife in as little as 5:15.60. This is the tune that was used for testing the car at multiple tracks, including the Dunsfold Aerodrome (51.54), Pike’s Peak (6:51.42), Circuit de la Sarthe (3:05.66), and the Automation Test Track (1:27.09). These are among the fastest times that a closed-wheel car set at these tracks, and they were done using an unoptimized tune. As we continue in our quest of obscene speed, a booklet of tuning setups for each track will be made available. Alongside that, each car can be tuned to the owner’s liking.
There is no substitute to, no compromise for, and no equal of the A1GP. Be it evidenced by the monster motor, wild wings, and bleeding-edge technology, it is clear that it represents the pinnacle of closed-wheel race cars. Since this does not conform to any current series’ regulations, it will, ironically, not be eligible to go into any races. This is okay. It is not why the car was built in the first place.
The A1GP arose out of immeasurable, repressed frustration at how it was replaced as an engine supplier. For the company to secure this position in an exciting, upcoming class of motorsport would have embossed its name into the minds of many as a purveyor of pure performance. Zacspeed holds the same hope as before in introducing this car, but now with a crave to dice seconds and acquire records. Performance sans compromise is the explanation, and Colin Chapman described it simply: “a racing car has only ONE objective: to WIN motor races. If it does not do this it is nothing but a waste of time, money, and effort.”
Thus, it is more than just an extreme performance vehicle. It is the asseveration of Zacspeed’s philosophy and allegiance to innovation.

TSR in Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance, Part 2
This is the latest generation of the TSR Ultra
The 2020 TSR Ultra NR5
The Ultra is on its third generation. TSR worked together with NR5 to make this. Still using the Kansai’s engine, the Touring produces 815 HP and the NR5 produces 1177 HP. However, the best part is not here. 2 special world-breaking editions are going to be revealed in the next auto show. Be on the look out!
Trims (for now)
TSR Ultra Touring
This is the base model, equipped with all wheel drive and a 815 HP engine. It is also the most comfortable too.
TSR Ultra NR5
This is the NR5 Spec A. There’s no Spec B version. Still uses all wheel drive and the same engine. Only this thing produces 1177 HP.
Prices are not confirmed yet…
You’re a brave one. Challenge accepted.
I was actually thinking on a 2019 totally not Pike’s Peaks Automation to BeamNG event in October, as the Gasmean event in my series next to my Great Archanean Trek and the Fruinian Corso, so don’t give all your cards away yet.
There’s no point being secretive about this kind of thing, all you need is more power and more downforce
