A Prescription for Laughs (RESULTS ARE UP!)


A Prescription for Laughs

This is a very quick, straightforward challenge, kind of unlike anything that has been done before when it’s all over.

I am looking for a hatchback in the A, B or C segments, simple as that.


  • Trim and engine variant year must be 2019.
  • Minimum wheelbase of 1.90 metres, maximum wheelbase of 2.65 metres.
  • Must be a hatchback body style, either 3 or 5 doors.
  • Must have realistic engineering decisions that would stand up in a real-world setting; don’t make it out of carbon fibre, don’t have a V8 engine, don’t give it pushrod suspension.
  • Maximum cost of $25,000.
  • Engines are strongly recommended to be 3 or 4 cylinders, and have a maximum family displacement no less than 1250 cubic centimetres.



  • Styling - Your car’s styling is going to be the single most important criteria here, outweighing everything else. Make your hatchback look good!

  • Engineering Considerations - Your hatchback should be engineered in such a way that if it were to appear in the boardroom of any car company in the world, it wouldn’t be immediately rejected for being silly. Use conventional materials and parts, don’t put in a silly engine and you’ll do just fine. Don’t do this, and you will be binned!

That’s it!

Before you post about it; yes, the rules are vague, this is intentional. Don’t worry about the other usual judging criteria you’d see in a conventional challenge.


Whaa… Do I get it right that the engine family has to allow a 1600 cc variant at least? It would make no sense at all for the smallest hatchbacks and their I3s, that’s why I ask.

I like the idea though, despite very low chance of me coming up with a good entry :smiley:


Changed to “no less than 1250 cubic centimetres.”


The small BMW 1-series sized model has a wheelbase just over 2.6 metres, yet it is very much a C-segment car. Any chance that could be included within the ruleset?

Most C-segment cars these days are actually in the 2.60-2.70m range anyways


That body has a 2.60-metre wheelbase, so it is fine. I have lengthened the wheelbase requirement slightly though regardless. I’ve also upped the cost somewhat as well.


can we submit multiple models of the same car, say an avergae consumer model and a hot hatch one?


Either one or the other is fine, but you can’t submit both. In fact:


There’s nothing like that in the rules, so don’t mislead people.


i was just asking cause i already have a cool one that i woulda liked to submit, but i wasnt sure if i could submit it as a hot hatch or if i had to detune it


Is there any preference for an advert being present, or do we just post one for fun?


As with any Automation challenge, unless it’s specifically allowed in the rules, you should assume you can only submit one car.

There is no preference for an ad, but anything to sell me on your cars would be a good thing…:wink:
