The New Kazume 7-Seat Crossover


“With an ever-growing market of crossovers around the world, manufactures have to adapt to the times. We at Kazume have made SUVs before, but never big enough for bigger storage space, families, and bigger futures.”

“And to support these futures, we made the KX7.”

The KX7 is engineered and equipped to set the bar for affordable 7-passenger SUVs. Our legacy of leadership means that KX7 includes benchmarks like the Xenia and the Azura. And our new SUV is eager to lead your family anywhere in bold and brilliant style, from its LED lighting, to wheels from 18 to 21 inches, to a body that’s at once muscular and aerodynamic.

This is our bigger future.


Suave Style


Designed to turn heads, on-road or off, KX7 features a muscular stance, rugged design touches, and enough luxurious features inside to make any expedition feel like a day at the spa. A rugged design greets you from every angle, while the signature character lines flow low on the body, providing a spacious interior filled with light. Strategically located spoilers and deflectors help improve KX7’s aerodynamic performance.


Premium Seating, for Your Whole Family


Consider it your base camp for big adventures. KX7 offers a premium, spacious interior with available navigation, Apple CarPlay, and Bose Premium Audio System coming through an 8.8-inch touchscreen display. KX7 provides its premium touch with the use of leather-appointed seats, available wood-tone trim to metallic accents - the signs of a high-quality, crafted interior are on full display. The available Dual Panel Panoramic Moonroof allows for a room with a view, whichever seat you choose. It stretches over all three rows of seats. Whether you’re in the city, on the highway, or cruising through the mountains, everyone can enjoy the scenery.
Capability goes way beyond taking on rugged conditions, it’s conquering the real world you face every day. That’s why KX7 offers seating for up to 8 with impressive amounts of leg room, and a reclining third row for added comfort. It boasts a best-in-class 7 USB ports, and 19 available cup holders.


Not the Subaru Ascent shown

Unbeatable Durability


To power all of your adventures, you need a rock solid powertrain. KX7 offers a host of proven and efficient engines to get you through wherever you go without breaking a sweat. A standard 3.6L boxer 6-cylinder from our recent HR-engine line makes an impressive 308 horsepower, while being frugal enough to score 24 combined MPG(US). If you’d like, you can also opt for a torquier and more fuel efficient 2.5L turbocharged boxer 4-cylinder that can reach up to the brst in its class 29 combined MPG(US).
All engines are paired to an 8-speed automatic and front or all wheel drive.

A Bigger Future for All


The KX7 will start from $21,850 for a 2.5L turbo, and $26,050 for a 3.6L model.

250T FWD - $26,800 - 25/36/29 MPG
250T AWD - $29,250 - 24/35/28 MPG
300 FWD - $30,250 - 22/32/26 MPG
300 AWD - $32,500 - 21/31/25 MPG

Auto-Dimming Exterior Mirror with Approach Light, $241.00 · Auto-Dimming Mirror with Compass and HomeLink, $365.00 · Fog Light Kit, $439.00 · Remote Engine Start, $446.00 · Bose Audio, $549.00 · KazuMedia Entertainment, $970.00 · Sunshade - 2nd Row, $299.95 · Sunshade - 3rd Row, $52.00 · USB Charging Ports, $230.00

Owl Motors at NYIAS 2019


The new Owl Divo. Producing 800hp and 664 lb-ft of torque, this new supercar isn’t one to be messed with.

0-100 km/h takes just 2.6 seconds and will go on to 187mph. You won’t feel like it’s a deathtrap either. With a luxurious interior with many standard features such as a 10" touch screen display with Apple CarPlay. As this car is not on sale as of yet, prices are not official, but expect to pay less than $130,000.


The 2020 Owl GranTurismo Coupe. The ultimate GT car. With 633hp, this car is perfect for those crazy cross-country rallys. With comfort, power and style, this is one of the best in a growing market.

The GranTurismo has a luxurious interior like the Divo, but with more of a luxury bias whereas the Divo has a more sporty interior. The 5.0L V10 propels the car to 100km/h in 4 seconds and can reach 1.18g on 20m radius cornering pad. Pricing starts at $77,000.


For those who want the speed of the GranTurismo but with 2 more doors and a larger trunk, there’s the GranTurismo Sedan. Built on the same platform as the GranTurismo Coupe, the GranTurismo Sedan can carry 5 passengers in comfort while traveling at it’s top speed of 188mph.

Using the same 5.0L V10 the GranTurismo Sedan makes 595hp and 501 lb-ft of torque. The engine is slightly detuned because the same power as the coupe is simply not needed. The Coupe is perfect to cruise to Leguna Seca, set an astonishingly fast lap, then cruise back home. The Sedan is perfect as a fast, practical and stylish daily driver. Pricing will start from $67,000.

gggg
Anyways, that’s all from us at Owl Motors! Feel free to ask us any questions you have about these models and we hope to see you guys soon! Also if you would like to test drive any of the cars PM me.


#118

Aaaand Just like that, it’s all over folks! If you’re a lazy fuck like me and just want the good stuff. Well here’s what went down this lovely year!


Cardinal Tuning GmbH Released a tuned version of a Shromet Dragon with 800Hp. Now I’ve never really been one for the Dragon myself but I think I could be persuaded by that kind of performance. At least in a different color. Those photos are really bright and eye searing.

Atlas is showing off a V12 hypercar which is apparently a spiritual successor to some sort of other race car they made awhile ago.

Blaire and Gremlin Have just up and yeeted themselves out of the show entirely. Well that’s not a very confidence inspiring move… If I were an investor I’d be looking elsewhere with my money to be honest.

Module’s crossover is here. The XR-20, and it’s got also got a 5L V8, but with 400hp! And apparently it’s RWD! It looks awesome, and jerking off to the 80s is what all the cool hipsters are into these days, so I see that spreading like wildfire.

EVGENIS is unveiling their next generation Typhon, and they’re all Mild Hybrids now, with PHEV and EV models set to drop in the future. No more V8s, even in the ES models. Oh well, such is the times. I do quite like the look of that but I can’t help but feel that D segment sedans have been regulated to a celebratory role these days. Like being the President of Ireland.

RMC are saying goodbye to the PST6 with a performance version with adaptive suspension, and 540Hp. That’s all well and good but I wouldn’t pay nearly double the price of a standard one, especially when the new model is just around the corner. Looks pretty good though I must admit.

YOSEMITE has a couple of different things to show… And the first one is… A Ford Explorer. There’s no other way around it. They’ve just shown an older Ford Explorer.
Next is a compact Crossover called the Cinto, and it’s… admittedly alright. Wouldn’t exactly call it a standout but it fills the gap in the market just fine I suppose.
And lastly the Wildcat, which was already shown in Europe. I’m really not a fan of this one, when there are so many better looking roadsters for less than 40 grand.

Murasaki is dead. A moment of Silence? Didn’t think so. It’s alright though because they have some sort of spiritual successor, who’s promising all sorts of Crossovers and city cars. No actual photos of these cars, obviously… I’d hold onto your checkbooks if I were you. They’re a successor of a brand that just went under and they’re asking for money without proof of a product. Yea that’s a hard no from me dawg.

AL Autos is showing the Aranea… again. But this time they’re really really gonna do it for super realsies this time guys. They pinky promise.

Ursula is Showing the FX1, a compact crossover. With an electric version coming sometime. But Christ it costs 34,000$! and it looks… like that! I would have guessing sub 20 with a 0,60 time of 9.3 seconds. And it just doesn’t look premium.

Huangdou is showing off multiple crossovers. Firstly they have a 7 or 8 seater chonker known as the Baolei, which despite being a V6 8 seater, still boasts up to 35MPG. I can only assume they way they’ve achieved this, as well as the incredibly competitive price of 26,000$ is by making the interior out of chopsticks and chewing gum.
They’ve also got a very enticing EV model. One of the few 7 seater Evs on the market. Now this is much more enticing indeed.
They’ve also revived the CC name to put on a compact crossover, which I’d normally protest fervently because tarnishing an old name by putting it on a crossover is just wrong on all levels. But this time I’m going to protest it because the old CC was… well, China in the 90s.
Tuk Tuks were advanced transportation back then. Best not to remind us of that time, things are much better now, with a… rather interesting crossover convertible option, as well as an EV option, with “Big Ass Electric Motors.” Sadly however it seems that they’re so competitive on pricing that they’ve failed to notice one can purchase the EV Balolei, which is much bigger, for less than 10 grand more. So they’ve sort of obsoleted it before it even came out.

Yamanishi is showing the new Mulholland, a super GT car with over 700hp, and all the modern luxury goodies. It’s really steep competition though, espically with LMC turning out such good stuff these days, and plus it just doesn’t look like it costs 180,000$. Looks are everything, people.

Roamer has broken out their bibles and clung to the V8 like its the crucifix itself in what is apparently some sort of sports sedan. That’s cool and all, claiming superiority by displacement, but with just 300hp, I’m pretty sure my non V8, turbocharged Tauga could beat it in a race.
Also they’re claiming their police version with 374Hp is the fastest police car in the world? right…
The petrol is going to run out at some point guys. Just a reminder.

Saminda is here! and so is the C3! And it’s Blue! Very VERY blue! There will be a 1.8L N/A engine with 150 horsepower that nobody will want, and a 1.5L Turbo engine which everybody will. But enough with the minor differences per generation, sell me the heart and soul of this car! What makes it special?

Tanaka is showing off a new full size SUV, called the Okanawa. And it… has a V8 with nearly 400 horsepower. Christ, talk about making an entry. But in order to meet that price of 36,000 for the 5 seat version, it must use an interior sparcer than a Huangdou. Well, we’ll see…

Rigore has claimed to have turned the Caelum to a serious road racer. The 2.1L engine now makes 370Hp. It claims to be literally everything one could want in a compact luxury sedan, quick, thrilling, luxurious, dynamic, technologically advanced… I’d love to believe them at face value, but usually when a car tries to be all things to all people it ends up being none of them. But here’s to hoping at least?

Zenshi is also entering the highly coveted GT halo car market with the Hornet, except this one has a 2.4L 4 Cyllinder engine. That’s… interesting. It claims to be a showcase of technology, but I hope that will make up for the apparently lacking power supply. But apparently it’s a hybrid, and will be able to get from 0-60 in under 4 seconds. Again, fighting an uphill battle in the GT market, but this is certainly a more interesting one, and it has some semblance of style, so it’s at least worth a shortlist I think.


(Intermission because there’s so many damn reveals. I need a hot dog)


#119

Correction, Hornet is a completely different manufacturer. :wink:


#121

The Gyrfalcon is easily one of the better uses of the other 90s supercar body (which resembles a CCX/Agera), especially with the winged longtail look you gave it. I’m guessing it’s the smaller version, with the shorter wheelbase, and not the larger long-wheelbase version. If only Orion decides to actually put it into production in the future - and offer an even more powerful engine (like a V8 or V10) for good measure.


#122

guess who forgot this post again…

Thank you everyone for your participation in this event. We hope you enjoyed taking part.

The next event will be the Goodwood Festival of Speed, on July 4th.

Please do not unveil any more cars. If you would like to continue to provide media coverage, you may feel free to do so.

2019 New York International Auto Show Pre-Show Coverage


This is Carol Lee, and welcome to the pre-show coverage of NYIAS from us Drivers.com! This NYIAS is certainly huge, and loads of automakers are gathering together just to showcase their latest and greatest cars to the public. And also the show isn’t cancelled yet. Like, seriously. We’re only several days (or hours) left for the official show, so yeah, let’s begin.

I know you all guys just need a summary for all those cars launched this year. So we did.

First on, we have the Atlas Zeta, a flat-12 supercar that sadly looks dated even for a spiritual successor for a some historic race car of some sort. What is the year now? 1996?

Blaire decided that they want to leave the show for some reason. Later Gremlin decided that they should leave the show too and yeeted themselves. Quebec later responded in a same way again. Now that’s what I called crazy.

Module Corporation released their first-ever SUV the XR-20, which looks interesting like your usual MC but it’s more practical and techy like your usual Module. Ironically it’s only available with an archaic RWD setup.

The new Typhon ditches the sedan model (why?) and becoming more prettier than before. There’s no V8, but I don’t mind as long as it has good performance and fuel economy. Guess what, somebody’s going to ditch her old Ursula F3 for a new Evgenis Typhon Mayfair now.

The RMC Pulse 6 is finally going to an end, so they decided to end it with a bang. Meet the PST6 Final Edition. With a turbo L6 generating 540 hp and double the price. Or just wait for the next car instead if you want.

Corsica launches 2 new crossovers here in New York. One big, one small. The Yosemite is actually nice if you want a decent SUV but now it’s equipped with loads of tech even the premium brands could actually worry. Also, look at the company’s first compact SUV, the Cinto. Honestly it looks a bit conservative but people would still suck it anyway since Corsica is pretty good at making SUVs.

RIP Murasaki. I bet anyone isn’t really forgetting or even heard of it…oh well, they aren’t dead yet but another company named Kurokama took over the company and launched Murasaki’s old stock. With no pictures. Except for the Corsac, maybe.

AL Auto’s NYIAS lineup this year is very boring to look at. They still launching their Araena from the last show. Or is it?

…or not. Here comes the Via, from AL Autos themselves. Questionable looks, boring engines and low price. Still boring for sure.

While everyone here is launching large SUVs, Ursula decided that they want to be different and launch a small crossover named the FX1 by teasing them on Twitter and launch them later. But it looks cheap and tacky, and with just 2 engine choices for it, how could they offer them for an expensive price of $34K?. Premium segment leader tax strikes again.

Looks like we’re in a time where everyone wants to launch an SUV of their own. This time China’s Huangdou launches another batch of SUVs, namely the Baolei (fortress in Chinese) an impressive-looking SUV with equally impressive engine lineup. And remember the CC that launched in this Detroit Auto Show? Here’s it’s sister the “allure” version, which includes a hopefully not-so-nasty convertible-coupe SUV that harks back to the 90s CC-100S. And yes, the holographic anime girl is also here too if you’re wondering. Anime fans rejoice.

Yamanishi’s newest Mulholland claims to have supercar-beating performance with unexceptional comfort. With Aston Martin’s help, I’m sure this would be fine. Even if it means like 50K cheaper than the Gaydon company’s offering.

It’s 2019 and everyone wants to sell their sedans for more practical, trendy and techy cars, Meanwhile DeVass somehow became drunk and posting some kinda threatening words for it’s new Roamer with woefully dated specs. No matter how much I want to say that 8 cylinders are awesome, but many turbo sixes now are much more powerful, efficient and reliable these days. But anyway, at least in 10 or 20 years this would be a nice project car that you can get for cheap and can be seen in your local Craigslist listings. Maybe.

Saminda’s C3 coupe is finally here, now with much more performance and more legroom because +1 inches of car length. Anyway, there’s no word about the 1.5 turbocharged 4-pot preforms, we can’t say about anything either.

Look, another SUV in the house. This time is Tanaka Okanawa, which is a full-size SUV with a meaty V8 and loads of seats options. Nothing special. Next.

The Caelum MT-R by Rigore has a 370 hp 2.1L turbo-4, a darn interesting look and loads of luxury. Whoa. With those performance and luxury could other premium companies should scare? Or they have their competitors incoming? But hey, the animals know what’s in store, and they have plenty enough to beg for more.

Korean automaker Hornet releases a pretty different kind of GT called the 21, aka. Ventuno, with an advanced hybrid setup, which includes a mid-engined 2.4 turbo 4-pot, and with 4 seats. Cool. Really cool.

Zenith’s latest Cheyenne SUV and Safehaven medium-sized pickup does have it’s ways to survive the high-riding car wars, but how they are looking so tame, compared to the murderous competition?

Ecamobile just released a oddball hybrid sports car, and named in a oddly fashion known as "“Small Bid”. With an oddly luxurious interior, powered by an oddly small engine in a oddly designed setup. If that could sell like 50 then I’m pretty impressed.

The Ursula V8-powered Goldman Fenix, named after the main character Marcus Fenix from Gears of War has a Halo-inspired styling and a infotainment system designed by the guys who created the Forza Motorsport series. A car for Xbox fans I guess. Except it’s Australian and they also offers a Porsche-inspired factory collection service. With no words for price. (What’s next, Sony and some car company releases a PlayStation car?)

Remember that time Okul killed the V10 for a new boxer-6? (why no V8? /s) Boom. Meet Leo Khan, a company made by themselves to keep the V10 alive by launching 3 new cars to the market. Most of the cars look nice, but who knows how if they drive well?

Small 2-liter V10, supercar like style and performance. All in a cheap price of 50K. Meet the Akarui Kamakiri, a bargain supercar that I still think if there’s any corners cut to sell such a cheap price for such a car.

Axuma’s all-new SJ sedan has some good looks and a smooth engine for a F-segment competitor. However, it’s dated interior kills that praise I got for the car, and why it’s sounds cheap because of a lack of standard and optional kit? UPDATE: Looks like they got the wrong pic of the interior and they have corrected it. Now I’d say is worth it. Good looks, good interior.

And speaking of the Axuma SJ, Toréer have just beefed up the newly-launched sedan to have much more power (661 hp, 625 Nm if y’all is wondering) and now feels much better for a sports sedan, even it costs like 25K more than the standard. I still blame the interior tho.

Montes T90 is now back and it’s live, with a massively powerful yet smooth engine and extremely nice looks. But one question remains. Could this become another failure like the last one did, or it will become another success and prove the customers wrong?

Martlet Comorant is a large sedan with a woefully gutless V6 and a equally woefully slow acceleration times of worse than 9 seconds, while it’s fuel economy isn’t that impressive at all. If this could even sell like 5 in a year then I’m absolutely impressed.

The Biei from Satsunai has a nice engine, good performance and comfort with a front end ruined by a stupid hood ornament placement. But despite the stupid idea on the front, I’m okay with it.

Nextly here’s the Aeros Antiloch SUV. 237 hp L5, decent MPG, slow times. It’s going to be very boring to drive. At least it has decent towing capabilities.

Enough of the boring SUVs and shit, here’s something much more interesting. Leviathan Motor Company’s new Maladus is a neatly-styled V8 super GT that has 618 hp on tap. OK, honestly I like it. But any other info for the car, please?

Zenshi’s all-new Karis sports car is just looks too dated for my tastes. But wow, congrats for launching an all-new Karis after like, 50 years? It’s a pretty light and agile car for sure, however.

Bramhall revives the Brooklands name for the 2019 Viva hatchback. Even with excellent 3.2 V6 twin-turbo engine and performance, how does they sell one for a price of a Ursula F3? Maybe hardcore automobile fans would do that, but I’m not sure how that would work well.

Kazume launches a new large SUV named the KX7 here in New York. It’s large for sure, and wow, judging by the pictures, the kit and the price for the car, I’m sure it will sell well. But can we stop seeing more SUVs in this auto show? Thanks.

The new Orion Gyrfalcon hyper car focuses mostly on lightness. With a small boxer-six engine, low weight, high downforce and acceleration values that could scare it’s V8/V10/V12 competitors, the racetrack has now arrived a new hero.

Finally, Owl Motors has decided to launch their new sports coupe and sedan called the GranTurismo which is surprisingly not supported by Sony and Polyphony Digital, Both will be a pretty nice cruisers, I guess. And yes, also in the show we have the new Divo supercar with 800 hp from an unspecified engine and a impressive 2.6 seconds, with a surprisingly low top speed for a car of its kind. And it’s cheap for the kind of car I guess.


Well, guys, playtime’s over and the show has started. No more NYIAS coverage for this year. See y’all in Frankfurt. Enjoy.

P.S from the actual author of the post (not Carol, but me F12OM): I have decided to ditch the old format of the pre-show coverage (see NAIAS 2019 for the old format) because I have not enough time for doing this and that format wastes loads of time. So, new changes for the reports I guess.)

Okay, so what is this here? I only know CSR since 94 and I’m pretty new to this stuff.
What is this Auto Show thing?
Do we just submit cars, which we think would be presented at one?


#125

Yeah basically its to show off year accurate cars that we have built, some people we do just engines etc :slight_smile:


#126

Reason being is that Blaire had another designing failure and this time they couldn’t fix it. Gremlin & Quebec went out of business. So Blaire & Taimania will be at Goodwood.


#127

Personal note : i likely hurried stuff, and made a few mistakes. I would like to ask the Magazines to only cover Corsac, leaving out the whole company switch thing.
I would like to delete it, so it does not cause chaos.


#128

Bramhall are expecting to sell to the same market that love the IRL Golf R32 and Focus RS, with performance figures that match and beat them in some regards, with a price equivalent to those cars. I’m not sure if anyone has done an equivalent car in automation but these performance figures are part of what made every Brooklands badged road car so crazy. Only three times before has the Brooklands name been put onto a road car: The original Viva which cemented the car as an icon of Britain, the Viva Mk3 Group B homologation model which helped launch them into the era speed in 1984, and finally the Virage VS-Brooklands. A 170 mile an hour 4 door saloon, available for sale in 1987. This car featured Brooklands’ signature engine, a precision engineered inline 6 with over 400 brake horsepower. Hopefully the American market shows as much interest in this mad contraption as the European market has.


#129

more cars woopie yohoo lets cover them and stuff


Okul has a fleet of identically painted cars… what a way to break up the monotonous design and make them not at all look the same… not. I don’t know if this is a sub brand, or a new lineup, or what, but anyways… There’s an incredibly smiley V10 luxury supercar called the Leo Khan One, a GT car very originally called the Leo Khan GT, and a 4 door called the Leo Khan Exodus. They’re all powered by the same engine and transmission so I don’t see much point to choosing between them, but whatever, they’re there if you want one I guess.

Akarui has unveiled a V10 supercar called the R38. They claim it’s the everyman’s supercar, but with a 2L v10, pushrod suspension, and carbon ceramic brakes, I would NOT want to own that out of warranty. Even for under 50,000$. This is why everyman supercars just don’t work. Figuratively and literally.

Axuma has a rather admitely alright looking premium sedan. Certainly not segment leading by any means, and that V8 makes it a bit of a dinosaur by modern sedan standards, but it is certainly competent at least.

Montes has the new T90, and it claims to be a serious drivers car for realsies this time. Usually I find these premium luxury drivers sedans try to be all things to all people and as a result end up being nothing. But maybe the T90 will be different this time? Only time will tell.

TORÉER AUTOMOBILE has tuned up an Axuma sedan to create an almost 200mph super sedan. Why you’d want a luxury sedan to be faster than a Honda NSX around a racetrack, I can’t say I understand. But it’s there and it costs 75,000$ if you want it.

AL Autos has the new Via, still in trashy MTV Cribs Gold. Even in regular colors, it still screams “ballin on a budget” to me. If you’re the type of person to compare your infotainment screen and the price you got your SUV for like the new form of automotive dick measuring, I can’t help but feel this is the one for you.

Martlet has a rather hideous looking oreo sedan that can’t even get from 0-60 in under 9 seconds. That’s about the level of performance I’d expect from a toyota corolla.
Satsunai has a tiny little V8 deathtrap with the nose of a cat.
And Aeros has a similarly slow 7 seat SUV, and I can only assume the design building was on fire at the time of the design because it seems like the task was to design it as quickly as humanly possible and get out of there. I don’t know what else to say.

Finally. LMC has some gorgeous eye relief in the form of the new Maladus. The color is to die for, and this is a reminder of why they rule the GT segment. I honestly can’t think of a Luxury GT car I’d rather have for any price. Yes please.

Zenshi (See I actually read it this time) has a new Karis, and I must say while Retro design is usually my thing, this coupe seems a bit too hunched forward, while it does stand out, that isn’t always necessarily a good thing. A bright orange suit would certainly stand out. I honestly can’t see them selling that many. Nobody is buying affordable coupes these days, especially when there isn’t a drop top option.

Somebody should talk to Bramhall , I don’t think Bonham would particularly like the use of the Brooklands name on a nutso hot hatch with a 3.2L twin turbo V6. Honestly that seems like the type of thing that would be an undrivable mess made specifically for the purpose of braging rights and settings records around a racetrack. Yes, you can make a little car go fast by putting a big engine in it. But at what cost? Hot hatches have never been about setting records. But whatever.

EDITED: Kazume has made a new 7 seat crossover called the KX7,which must be a suicide mission mission for the company, because apparently they’re selling each one and making no profit. I assumed they liked staying in business, which is why I thought it was being produced so cheap. But hey, if they want to run their company right into the ground by not making any money, who am I to stop them?

Orion is clearly calling out GG with their Gryfalcon racing concept. Lots of numbers, but no track times. I assume they’re inviting GG to test the waters on that one first. I’m all for supercar duels, and GG is pretty unbeatable so we’ll have to see how that goes.

Owl needs to hire a new photography department, stat. Those photos make it impossible to tell what the cars look like, so I guess I’ll withhold my thoughts until I can actually, like, see them.


Alright… I think that’s it from me. Have a good one NYC!


#130

I love how the Brooklands is causing a huge stir right now XD It’s fantastic the impact it’s having, I can imagine social media will be lighting up with pictures of the Brooklands Viva all over the web, Carthottle would be going bezerk for it, even if Drivers and Motornation aren’t too interesting.


#132

With numbers like 450hp and 988kg it’s unlikely (and Orion can be quoted to have not intended to). Unless GG make good on their 2020 “Kelpie” concept which was proposed to run the same power but probably about 250-300kg less…

However I do hear of an unhinged “extra spicy” version which puts it much in the ballpark of a regular 2017 Lilith.


#133

Honestly, I don’t mean to compete with GG, I know that’s out of my league. I really just wanted to test if I could make a decent SWB 'egg body supercar with a (relatively) small amount of power. Really this was more of a design exercise than an actual performance one.

I can understand why it may be thought that it was meant to, and I’m sorry for that confusion. At the end of the day what I like (And what I think i’m best at) is designing cars and making cars that are fun to me, I am not a competitive car maker. I probably should have toned down the competitive overtones with the marketing, yeah?

Anyway, apologies for that, I’m probably overanalyzing it but I just like making cars for fun, I suck at competition.


#134

(I still want to look at this car, genuinely sounds like more useable fun than 800hp in 1250kg lol)
