Kasai Motors at Geneva Motor Show 2019
Introducing the 2019 Kasai Calibri R - A New Kind of Fun.
Kasai Motors is proud to reveal their all-new performance hatchback - or hot hatch - models, the Calibri R and Calibri R GT.
Throughout the years, the Calibri hatchback has gone through a number of different shapes and iterations before finally entering the more radical, higher performance grounds with the R and R GT trims. Both the Calibri R and R GT are powered by a street-tuned version of the 4KME engine previously used as specialty rallycross engine, capable of putting up to 272 horsepower and 324 Nm to the wheel, with Eco Mode for in-city driving, and forged parts enabling it to rev up to 8.300 RPM. That is nearly 2-3 times the power of all other Calibri trims, for comparison.
A Direct Race Derivative.
Thanks to years worth of racing engineering experience, the Calibri is equipped with an array of motorsports-inspired technology, such as viscous limited slip differential, all-wheel-drive system, a selection of 6-speed manual transmission (R trim) or dual clutch transmission (R GT trim) with Launch Control feature, Race Mode ESC, and soft compound sports tires. This gives it a 0-100 km/h time of just under 5 seconds and a top speed of 240 km/h (electronically limited). Cornering also goes up to 1.15 g. With this, you can go down the Alps without any worries of crashing to think about.
A Love Letter For Enthusiasts.
Coming from an economy car background, the Calibri R does not forget its lineup’s main advantage: Affordability. With a starting price of $28.000, the Calibri R is among the more competitive models when it comes to the amount of Price vs. Features and Performance it offers. It’s set as the ‘starting ground’ for people who are just starting to enter the performance car scene, people who are looking for cheap horsepower, or tuners who are interested in tuning the Calibri to its maximum potential.

The all-new 2020 Tanaka Akuma
Tanaka Akuma S shown in Metallic Black
The time has come for a new generation. Times have change and Tanaka has been left behind just by a little bit. But that is about to change, because the new 3rd generation Akuma is here.
Tanaka Akuma S shown in Iced Stone
The front is a completely new design language. The designers at Tanaka wants to have an aggressive but a professional look. The front of the Akuma clearly shows that. The headlights are thin with a curved black line that follows the shape of the car connecting the two headlights. These, combined with the large side vents make this car a looker.
As for the sides, the side profile is quite clean. The lack of a visible vent on the sides contributes to the cleanliness. Here, you can notice the black strip on the bottom part. There is a vent hidden behind the black bar. There is a scoop on each sides of the car to take in air to cool the engine. The overall shape of the Akuma is smooth.
The rear of the car goes compliments the front of the car, smooth yet aggressive. This way, the Akuma looks professional. At the diffuser, there is a rear fog light which is mandatory in Europe. However, it also makes the Akuma look more sporty.
At the roof, there is a bubble top. It is there to differentiate this car from others. Not only that, but it gives extra space for tall people with helmets to be comfortable and not hitting this roof.
Here is the bare chassis of the Akuma. As you can see, there is the carbon-fibre tub with aluminium tubes going around the car. This new chassis is now 20% stiffer than its predecessor. This is also the first Akuma to have all-round pushrod suspension to stretch its handling capabilities. The 4.7 litre twin-turbocharged V8 is connected to a 7-speed dual-clutch transaxle. The Akuma is of course, an AWD-only vehicle.
Tanaka Akuma S shown in Metallic Black
This is the Akuma S. This is for those who would like to use their Akuma as their daily driver. It is equipped with 19-inch alloy rims as standard. It has a sports interior with a premium HUD.
Top Speed: 217mph
Fuel Economy: 28.1mpg
Starting price (no mark-ups): $80426
Tanaka Akuma R shown in Gunmetal Gray
This is the Akuma R. This is for those who would like to use their Akuma and have fun in the weekends in the streets and the racetrack. It is equipped with 20-inch carbon-fibre rims as standard. The Akuma R is lighter than the S because of its reduced safety features and the lightweight carbon-fibre rims. Other changes include an R-Exclusive wing, sportier suspension tuning, wider tires and individual throttle bodies (ITB).
Top Speed: 207mph
Fuel Economy: 27.2mpg
Starting price (without mark-ups): $86647

Arkadus, "Only A road To happiness"
The IkaMagic model range makes a radical turn into 2019, predicting its own new future design elements that would in turn "radicalise the shape of sports motoring as we know it.
Their highlights from the International Motor show include high-end sports models that are as sporty as they are form-making, implementing a design element that is said to “Slightly reduce drag by increasing air resistance.” And on this very day, the Aero Fin has become synonymous with IkaMagic’s sporty range, ushering in the Fin Era as the fans have called it.
Another new innovation announced by IkaMagic is the new Variable Valve Timing system they called MVTS (Magic Valve Timing System). It is said to immensely boost engine efficiency, giving itself the power it needs without having to strain itself as hard as other engines from the manufacturer.
So far they have released a teaser image of their latest car to be shown at the auto show.
There have been various rumours about this car, some people wondering about the protrusion from the side. Some debating that it might be a long whale-tail for a sports car, while others may have thought of a shooting-brake inspired grand tourer.
Honghu Press Day 2
Honghu shows off two new vehicles at this year’s auto show, starting with the refreshed 88888888; China’s flag carrier since the 1970s.

Today is the day where car companies would showcase their arsenals and their potentials to the world. Meanwhile there has already been a series of billboard attempting to poke fun at each other just outside the convention.
Zenshi at the 89th IMS
Zenshi comes to the Geneva Motor Show with a sample of it’s current lineup, from the Nimessa, to the Altrea Newman R, to the Axia, one model stood out from the crowd, looking louder from it’s group with a very recognizable colour.
Now resembling the recently redesigned Nimessa, the Newman R variant comes back, now looking more serious that how it was last presented, but still carried it’s some of it’s rowdy appearance, like a punk rocker wearing Sunday clothes.
ZMD plans on making the Newman R brothers look different from one another, with the S taking the spotlight first. The head designer of the Newman project has stated to make the M version look more mature and subtle compared to the S’s louder qualities, but both should boast a very slight difference in performance on a track.
The 2020 Nimessa Newman R, compared to it’s previous versions, will be considerably different performance wise. The IA25-GDAT 2.5L Turbocharged I6 was dropped in favour of something completely different: The AG23-GDAT.
The AG23 is an Inline-5 engine developed as a downsized variant of the TDF’s AG30 engine, in which ZMD was given the new engine as a means to see what potential it can have performance-wise, and the results were well-received by the team: 415 HP and 322 lb-ft, mated to a 6-Speed Manual transmission.
While the AG23’s stats are about as similar to the IA25’s, the weight is a lot lighter, and the turbochargers offered a lot smoother boost delivery. This resulted in a much more nimble, yet smoother Nimessa Newman R.
So, then, would you be prepared for a completely new experience within a more matured machine? This dog has learned some new tricks up it’s sleeve.
IkaMagic's 2019 Sports Range.
The first highlight of the new range is a hatchback that is said to revolutionise and invent the term “Super Hot Hatch”. They dubbed it the Neon Tetra, showing off the latest range of sports-oriented machines titled ‘Specification X’.
The Spec-X Neon Tetra is said to reach 340HP from a turbocharged 3-litre flat six engine, ensuring power whenever the user needs it to tear down the track. They plan to give the range a 6-speed Manual or Dual Clutch Transmission, giving customers choice depending on levels of driving expertise.
Patented Aero-Fin technology helps to keep the car down onto the ground yet also reduce drag from the sides while giving the car a completely menacing look that matches with the rest of the body.
Not only does the Aero Fin technology help keep the car gripped to the track like it’s made for it. Providing a top speed of 165mph, it also has the oomph that lets it keep up with some of the big boys that are also specifically designed to take the track.
Promotion of the car was also rolled out with the words “Make the track your enemy.” printed onto bracelets following the name of the hatchback. Press is expected to make big waves of this new breed of hatchback.
After the teaser image for one of their cars to be displayed at the show, the new car has been officially shown as part of promotional material for IkaMagic. Thus, they ushered in the next generation of Sailfish, a coupe model that was prominent in the 1980s as a car with sporty flair.
However, this modern Sailfish isn’t just any Sailfish like the ones in the past. This featured model is a limited-run model that they plan on only making 500 models every year until the end of the car’s life cycle. They have dubbed this the Noir, a dedicated supercar version of the Sailfish that challenges the likes of others in its similar vein. It is said to be the ultimate Sailfish variant, a sporty car that has the looks to match supercars like it.
It comes with a naturally aspirated Z-series 4.9L V12 engine that produces nearly 560HP, which would seem rather modest for a supercar in this modern age. However, what makes this engine stand out is when it comes to life. The Z-series’ special feature is the absurdly high RPM that it reaches for a fully road-legal supercar, able to reach 11000 revolutions per minute with minimal horsepower loss. People would question its engine placement for a car of its kind, but IkaMagic states that regardless of the engine being placed at the front, it would be competitive enough to hold its own against other supercars.
The engine is also said to be one of IkaMagic’s smoothest and most responsive engines yet while also retaining minimal damage to the environment. It’s a marvel how technology could be able to get this far.
The sleek and aggressive styling is also what was to be noted, the car having a carbon monocoque frame that helps reduce its weight. However, the key for IkaMagic was also to provide extreme sportiness while remaining cheap for a supercar of its calibre as well. The Noir model only comes with a 7-speed manual transmission combined with an electronically-assisted one-and-a-half-way LSD, ensuring that the handling of this car is forgiving to those that can master it. The Aero Fins and its sharp exterior is also said to provide extra downforce to hunker the car further down onto the road, ensuring even more stability for a supercar of its calibre. Featuring a top-of-the-class heads-up display system that also displays hotlap information depending on track data and also mode adjustment on the fly. Its track-focused appearance also goes down to the double wishbone suspension in the front, pushrods at the back that provide active sports springs with dampers that act upon the suspension terrain and the mode it was set onto.
IkaMagic are looking for a strong high-powered car lineup to bring themselves up into the industry with innovation with their booth area involving a hands-on experience simulation with the two cars around a track, as well as a sit-around on the interior to show off the sleek interiors as well. There was also an hourly event where the IkaMagic Sailfish Noire would get a start-up demonstration inside of an area in their booth.
FAAL’s Legal Department wants to know your location
Mondo Official Press Conference.
Geneva Auto Show, March 6th 2019.
Welcome to Mondo’s first overseas international appearance at the 89th Geneva Auto Show. We will only be announcing one car today, however we believe its significance to us warrants its own event. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
The Mondo 10 Line.
Since it’s inception, the Mondo 10 line has been about one concept; create the ultimate highway cruiser. Such a promise entails these aspects: exquisite luxury, sublime comfort, excellent power, and supreme high speed dynamics. We envision a car where you can relax and tend to your businesses as you hurtle down the highway at speeds most cars can’t even sustain. As such, the process to find perfection is a multi generational endeavor.
Today, for the first time in history, we reveal the next step towards cruising perfection under the international spotlight of the Geneva Auto Show.
The All New Mondo E10 Raja.
Make Way For The King.
This is that next step. In this 6th generation, the Mondo E10 has been redesigned from the ground up to incorporate the latest in technology, bringing it to the forefront of the car industry. The Mondo E10 in Raja trim is the flagship of Mondo, equipped with the finest luxury balanced with generous power.
The first step of a luxury cruiser is unrivaled interior excellence. As such, the Mondo E10 Raja provides it in spades, and then improves upon it through technology. Sitting in the Mondo E10 Raja is an experience in itself, as intelligent ergonomics algorithms analyze your seating position and detects your dimensions, and then determines the best seating adjustment. Once settled in you may notice the extensive interior detailing. Panels are embossed with a subtle Parang type batik pattern, symbolizing power and prestige. Handles and other small trim items are wrapped in high quality Rattan, a durable plant based material traditionally woven by craftsmen. Mood lighting is comprised of infinitely adjustable LED strips and dots embedded in the trim, the panoramic sunroof, and seats. Said panoramic sunroof is also equipped with adjustable opacity, filtering out any harsh sunlight and heat. Along with 4 zone climate control, the cabin is kept at optimal temperature at all times. Further amenities include heated and cooled seats, massage functions, temperature controlled storage bins, integrated wireless charging, and a full compliment of premium Carman Hardon speakers.
Moving forward, the definition of luxury expands to not only mean comprehensive grace, comfort, and high quality, but also connectivity. Staying up to speed and updated is quickly becoming a modern day necessity.
As such, the Mondo E10 Raja SerbaConn+ infotainment system is essentially a smartphone on wheels. The dashboard is now a fully interactive surface, thanks to the advent of curved OLED screen technology
(Yes I’m sorry if this sounds familiar Yang but I swear I’ve thought of this independently years ago). Input is done through touch, gestures, or voice dictation. Important information such as vehicle information, collision avoidance, traffic information, and directions can be projected onto the windshield to maximize road attention. In addition to car information, SerbaConn+ is fully internet capable and is equipped with smartphone mirroring, enabling you to access emails, news, maps, and other media directly through the comfortably large back seat interface of the Mondo E10 Raja.
Operating such technology is SerbaConn AI, our latest and greatest vehicle operating software. It handles all your preferences and coordinates it according to your needs. SerbaConn AI also handles inputs into the infotainment system. With it, gone are the days of clunky commands, faulty speech recognition, and slow response. SerbaConn AI understands everyday conversation, meaning inputting a command through SerbaConn AI is as easy as having a chat with your acquaintances. It is no longer just another way to interact with your vehicle. It is your new travel companion, assistant, and is actually a good friend to have around.
Despite all the features and conveniences packaged with the Mondo E10 Raja, it is not without driving competence. Such is the nature of the perfect highway cruiser, therefore we will not settle for less. The heart of the Raja is the Z57 engine, a turbocharged 5.7 liter V12 tuned to produce 465 horsepower and 710 Nm of torque. Coupled with an all-aluminum construction, reducing the total weight of the Mondo E10 Raja by over 100 kg, and aerodynamic drag reduction engineering, this means a 0-100 km/h time of 5.3 seconds, a top speed nearing 300 km/h, and a comfortable cruising speed in excess of 280 km/h. Despite the performance, the Mondo E10 Raja still achieves a more than respectable combined fuel economy rating of 7.4 L/100km.
Such speeds cannot be sustained safely without supreme high speed handling dynamics. As such, we have paid careful attention to bringing the power of the Z57 engine to the wheels. SerbaDrive AWD keeps the power and control constantly applied to the ground, and the advanced ActiveHydro suspension has been tuned to strike a balance between comfort and handling superiority. As a result, the Mondo E10 Raja has grip levels exceeding 1.00g.
A staple of Mondo since the beginning has always been carefully crafted design. Each car has been molded into the form it is destined to take, creating a perfect synergy between form and function. The Mondo E10 Raja continues this tradition of excellence.
The large front grille of the Mondo E10 Raja allows plenty of breathing space for the large Z57 engine, while simultaneously exuding the presence it deserves. In times when such cooling is not required, the grille is equipped with intelligent flaps that close to improve aerodynamics, resulting in even better economy. As per Mondo design, the grille is split down the middle by the Mondo Wrench logo to signify its hierarchy on the vehicle.
The GarudaWing lights, a signature of Mondo. Its stacked configuration and bending shape is intended to depict the wings of the Garuda bird. For the Mondo E10 Raja, the GarudaWing lights have been upgraded with BirdsEyes technology, adaptive laser lights that automatically adjust direction and brightness according to conditions. Working with radar technology, BirdsEyes can also intelligently distinguish potential unseen dangers and highlight them on the road.
The direction line, another Mondo design staple. It is intended to depict a guiding hand pushing the vehicle forward, signifying speed and confidence. The Mondo E10 Raja takes the direction line into the modern era by infusing it with technology. It is now also an active sensor system, alerting you of potential harm from the sides and rear. Also integrated into the direction line are the smart door handles, with a flush aerodynamic design and fingerprint detection entry.
The rear fascia has also been designed to bring about an air of presence. The stacked tail lights point towards the center, where the Mondo E10 name is enshrined in chrome. The elegant lines of the lower bumper trail from rear brake ducts that function to keep the brakes cool, and direct the extracted air carefully as to not impact the Mondo E10’s aerodynamics. The liftback configuration, while providing excellent practicality, also provides superior aerodynamic characteristics as opposed to a traditional saloon layout, as well as bestowing upon the Mondo E10 an elegant, flowing silhouette.

The all new Fuji Imperator
The Imperator was designed, like its predecessor, to make you feel. Cornering is its target, and everything else is a bonus - so, although there is a four hundred horsepower engine, it’s not a big V8 - it’s a six cylinder behind the front axle. The Imperator isn’t all wheel drive - it still goes from zero to sixty in just four seconds. And, then, once you’re at sixty, it can stop in just one hundred feet.
KEEPING THE CORE VALUES
Although it has been 20 years since the last Imperator was sold, the same core values apply - good power, light weight, and great handling. Even though the new model has a wheelbase that’s 10 inches longer and modern safety features, it still weighs less than the original Imperator thanks to the use of carbon fiber body panels. So, with its near 50/50 weight distribution, the Imperator can pull 1.3G on a skid pad, and look good while doing it.
And even though it weighs just 2800 lbs, the Imperator features a full premium interior with comfortable but secure bucket seats, an advanced entertainment system, electronic stability control, launch control, a dual clutch transmission, and incredible safety features. The Imperator scores a top safety rating for its class, and can even get up to 28 miles per gallon, making it supremely driveable.
