i imagine it could provide different power delivery options. so like a linear response, or maybe a very fast initial acceleration for city driving ect.
Then those aren’t transmission modes.

Thanks for reading and we`ll see us next time!
Maesima Motor Corporation unveiled its sL1000 premium luxury sedan for the Sachiuri brand at the 2017 Antiyita International Motor Show, the new flagship of the brand’s model line-up. The all-new Sachiuri sL1000 will compete at the top of the luxury car segment with truly world-class design and technological innovations with the highest levels of refinement, convenience and dynamic performance.
The sL1000 builds on Sachiuri’s unmistakable Evoco design language introduced with the entry-level sL200 sedan. The strikingly bold design with a coupe-like silhouette punctuated by flowing organic Evoco design language. A new driver-centric performance feel comes from building the sL1000 on the company’s all-new critically acclaimed rear wheel drive global architecture for luxury vehicles (SL.I). This premium rear-wheel-drive platform, an extended version of the one used for the stunning new Sachiuri Sagitta sports coupe, will offer a more dynamic experience on the road while further improving comfort.
The sL1000 silhouette is both powerful and refined, with its prominent hood, generous wheelbase, minimized overhangs and sophisticated rear deck surfacing. Inside the cabin, fine materials and textures from around the world meet refined ergonomics to provide occupants with absolute convenience and luxurious comfort.The sL1000 stands out from the field with its flowing organic design and supreme quality. It’s strikingly bold exterior highlight the companies design ethos to focus on the creating a vehicle that is both luxurious yet unique and bold.
“The sL1000 is the flagship of the Sachiuri brand", said chief designer, Erik Schweitzer "We’re taking on an extremely competitive segment, which is why more than any other model, it has to embody everything the brand stands for and that’s why we’ve been so extensive and focused in all elements of its development.”
At its market introduction, the all-new Sachiuri sL1000 will start out with the option of RWD or Sachirui’s X-TRAC AWD system and three engine options in most markets, an extensively re-engineered 3.2 V6 ActivBoost engine, the 4.4 V8 ActivBoost version. But the big news is all-new flagship V10 engine, this naturally aspirated 4.5 develops over 500 hp. All engines offer supreme refinement, ample performance and high efficiency. Appearing later will be a mild hybrid variant developed with new battery technology which will drive down fuel consumption even further in real driving conditions.
In addition to bold styling, new powertrains and opulent interior, the sL1000 is full of innovative technology. Its the most advanced vehicle Sachiuri have ever built. From launch, the vehicle will be available with Sachiuri’s automatic driver and traffic control system that enables Level 3 autonomous driving. The car takes over the task of driving in certain situations. Unlike at Level 2, the driver no longer needs to monitor it permanently.
They must merely be capable of taking back responsibility whenever the system prompts them to, with the system active, the driver can relax. They can take their hands off the steering wheel permanently and, depending on national laws, focus on a different activity that is supported by the car, such as watch a TV program on the 12-inch SACHIURI iX infotainment display in the centre console.
During highly automated travel a small camera in the driving area detects if the driver tires or falls sleep. If that happens, a multi-stage warning is given. As soon as the speed rises above 60 km/h (37.3 mph) or the line of vehicles breaks up, the traffic jam pilot informs the driver that they need to take charge of driving once again. If they ignore this prompt and the subsequent warnings, the new sL1000 is braked to a standstill.
Detailed information will soon be available on the Sachiuri webpage.
2018 Automation EOTY Awards
Press day 2 isn’t quite done yet, so we’re gonna wait a little while longer before summarising all that. In the mean time, however, I’ve been on a load of roadtests. Time to see what some of the hottest new vehicles at this year’s show are really like once they’re off the display stands.

A study shows Sachiuri is directly correlated to an increase in the sperm production worldwide.
Thanks for your feedback, Gavin!
It will be solved before the first deliveries!
these are the keys to 2 test cars
Mont Royal Deco Vision 2025 Concept
Following the RCM Ace Vision 2025 Concept, Mont Royal’s designers have designed their own interpretation for the return to the twenties. The design is inspired by the art deco style that began in the 1920s but offers a modern twist on it from this century. The Deco Vision 2025 Concept’s cabin can accomodate four occupants in supreme comfort, with the unequal smoothness of a naturally aspirated V12 for driving comfort and performance.
Zenshi at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show
Zenshi showcases two new vehicles that are more on the heavy side of things.
2019 TDF Furue ZMD Trail Edition
Shown in Ultimate Black Pearl
The 6th generation TDF Furue came out in 2015, and once again will be given the “ZMD touch.” While ZMD is primarily known for making performance vehicles on the track, they too have knowledge off the road, and the Furue is their weapon of choice to apply this knowledge on.
The result is the TDF Furue ZMD Trail Edition, “Trail Edition” meaning that this is the version made for off-roading. The Furue was used by Zenshi in various rally racing events way back when, and the current generation was no stranger to the events, as it was used by ZMD’s Rally Racing team last year for the Dakar Rally.
The ZMD Trail Edition could then, be considered, somewhat of a homologation, as it possesses many similar performance traits to the Dakar Rally. The body was somewhat wider to accommodate the use of wider tires, and overall was given a more aggressive front end.
Underneath the pickup’s body, contained ZMD fine-tuned suspension, Torsen differential, and large disc brakes with ramune blue-coated calipers. Powering the terrain crawler is a 4.8L naturally aspirated V8 similar to the one used in the Pike, making over 400 HP and around 370 lb-ft of torque. All of this is linked to Zenshi’s recently developed Super Drive 6-Speed automatic transmission and SM-AWS system.
With all of this in mind, it would be clear that ZMD has tuned one of Zenshi’s simplest vehicles up to 11.
2019 Taiko Pike
When it comes to Taiko, a division of Zenshi that specializes in utility vehicles, it doesn’t really matter what year it is, if it isn’t broke, why bother fixing it?
The 2nd generation Pike is still being made. Despite being many generations behind to Zenshi’s counterpart, Taiko utilizes the body and keeps in focus with what it was made to do: disregard weather, acquire heavy things.
To get on with the times a bit, the Taiko Pike was spritzed up in 2010 to look a bit more modern. Inside, the running time machine has a bit of nod to how it was since 1968, utilizing various gauges to tell the driver the car’s elevation, angle, etc., but with more modern touches, such as an infotainment system and rear-view camera.
The Taiko Pike will have a choice of two engines: the 3.7L naturally aspirated LY5-GME I6, and the 4.9L turbodiesel RD49-DDA2T V8. Both can either be had with a 5-speed manual, or automatic transmission (the 4.9L will have a 6AT instead).
The Azanti Asada. Making bold statements and breaking new grounds.
Ashbury 2.0 Turbo X trim shown in Paris Blue Metallic on Xenon White accents and roof.
Azanti is proud to present the 3rd generation Asada at the 88th International Motor Show. When the original Asada broke cover in 2007, it created an entirely new group of Azanti fans worldwide. Now, built on Kimura’s CM-T (Compact Modifiable - Transverse) Global platform, the Asada returns with improved handling, comfort, and all-terrain capabilities. With widespread usage of lightweight high-strength steel, the Asada is able to retain it’s rigid structure whilst maintaining a low curb weight. A first for Azanti vehicles is an all-new AllTrak system which can be adjusted by the driver for every setting. Thus, the driver can prepare for on-road difficulties and off-road situations easily and effectively, improving the dynamic nature of the Asada. This system is available only on 2.0 Turbo X models. The suspension has been completely reworked for sophisticated yet spirited on-road mannerisms. 4 options are available to propel the Asada; a 2.3 L naturally aspirated I4, a 1.3 L turbocharged I3, a 1.6 L turbocharged I4, and a 2.0 L turbocharged I4. In the interest of pursuing a greener, more eco-friendly future, Azanti will no longer provide a turbodiesel engine, with the 1.3 L I3 taking it’s place with comparable power and less weight. These engines may be mated to a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic and 4WD is optional.* It is possible to achieve an EPA estimated 41 MPG highway with the new Asada. Foraying into the new decade, the Asada will prove to triumph over its competition.
*1.3 and 1.6 models are not available with 4WD. 1.3 and 2.0 turbocharged models come standard with 8-speed automatic transmissions.
Ashbury 2.0 Turbo X trim shown in Xenon Metallic on Blackberry accents and roof.
The latest Asada has a fully redesigned interior which exudes a chic and premium ambience. A newly designed leather-wrapped 2-spoke steering wheel comes as standard, with an optional plant-based faux suede option available. A rearview camera is standard on all Asada models. Automatic braking, Lane Keep Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitoring, Pedestrian Detection Systems with KimuraGuard™, featuring 360° parking cameras, are also available. Travelling to the exterior, a bold new design language is simultaneously unveiled with the latest Asada; based on a horizontal width-focused motif, the Parallel Diamond design takes Azanti’s design into a new era of avante-garde ideals. LED taillights foglights are standard, whilst full LED headlights are optional on all trims and standard on Ashbury trims. Varied personalization options are available for the Asada with 5 different wheel options, 5 accent colors, and 8 body colors along with 6 interior accent colors. With a practical interior and unparalleled design, the Asada returns better than ever before.

We’ve announced a slew of new performance cars for Geneva, and it’s time for us to bring a muscle car into the fold. Introducing the Wraith.
The Wraith (base model)
Armed with a tuned version of the Scylla S’s V8, the Wraith brings over 380 hp to the rear wheels. The top speed is over 180 mph and the 0-62 time is 4.7 seconds with launch control available to make it even quicker. This muscle car is built for more than driving in a straight line. Leviathan’s active multilink suspension makes for a responsive ride that keeps the power under the driver’s control. This Wraith has a tested Airfield lap time of 1:21.37.
The Wraith has 4 full sized seats and a high-quality premium infotainment system as a standard feature. The engine carried over some of the fuel saving tech found in the Scylla, bringing the Wraith fuel economy to 28.8 mpg combined. Pricing for the Wraith starts at $41,290.
The Supersport utilizes the recently developed 4.8L Hydra V8 to increase the power output to 516 hp. Staying true to the muscle car formula, that power is delivered to the rear wheels. The 0-62 mph time is shortened to 4 seconds flat and the top speed is well over 200 mph. The suspension, tires, and brakes have all been tuned to accommodate the power increase. The Supersport is over 250 lbs lighter than the standard Wraith, bringing the weight to 3,495 lbs. We tested this version at the Airfield and it achieved a lap time of 1:17.21. The price for this high performance model starts at $56,850.
That’s all we have for Geneva this year. We are constantly working to improve our cars and we look forward to the next auto show. Thanks for your time!
Baltazar at the Geneva Motor Show
Baltazar is proud to present the smallest car of the range, named after the smallest size conceivable within the standard model of Physics, a unit of measure named in honour of the man who conceived this limit, Max Planck.
For 2018, the Baltazar Planck has received a facelift, with new head and tail lights and new bumpers. The engine range still consists in the 1.0 3-cylinder unit, in two states of tune, a 70 hp NA model and a 95 hp turbocharged one. Drive is sent to the front wheels through either a 5 speed manual gearbox or a 5 speed automated manual.
Inside, 4 people can sit in lavish comfort, with the latest infotainment items available.
More information and detailed stats, soon on the Baltazar page.
Here’s a recommendation that should be heeded: next time you want someone to review one of your cars, just PM them the trim you want to be reviewed, rather than sharing them on an open thread such as this one.
With which fixture did you do your headlight?
Damn, man, at least be a little less “witty” and a bit more constructive…
Anyway, here are the new Aurora concepts, with new, more consistent design and a new “winged” logo.
Every single one has our flagship 3.5 liter twin-turbocharged V8 from the Ryujin. Yes, even the Airstrike.
Jetfire RII (Revision 2)
- 0-60 in 3.6 seconds
- 185 mph top speed
- 28.1 mpg city, 44 mpg highway
- 0-60 in 3.7 seconds
- 179 mph top speed
- 26.2 mpg city, 42.5 mpg highway
- 0-60 in 5.22 seconds
- 190 mph top speed
- 23.7 mpg city, 40.5 mpg highway
- 0-60 in 3.3 seconds
- Top speed of 175 mph
- 29.5 mpg city, 44.1 mpg highway
- 0-60 in 4.7 seconds
- Top speed of 142 mph
- 23.1 mpg city, 36.1 mpg highway
These models are planned to be released in mid to late 2018 with more trims and possible facelifts.
In other news, Norris are delaying their shows in order to fit them with Ronin’s (Aurora’s parent company) V8 engines.
If you want him to be more constructive, perhaps you should send him a car to review?
Good point, although he’d probably just find all the cracks in the designs.
