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.

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.
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.

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.
