2018 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance


#21

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.


#25

Nice car, not a fan of the headlights though.


#26

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.


#27

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.
