Adonijin is a collaboration company between myself and @Obelisk, they are a brand that focus mainly on sports cars, off-roaders, hypercars, and motorsports. The engineering half is done by Obelisk, design is done by me, and we will both develop the lore together.


History:

Adonijin are a South Korean brand, founded by a Korean engineer and British designer in 1960. They were founded to compete with the dominant Japanese brands and entered the market in 1964. Adonijin specializes in low-volume cars of varying types.

Adonijin 800I

The Adonijin 800I, a mid-engined sports coupe first released in 1964, was an instant hit for its unique design and massive power hike over its competitors in the 800cc market - boasting a whopping 100 HP while its closest competitor made about 70. It was originally intended to have a 1 litre engine, but the decision was made to downscale to 800cc to increase the redline, shave weight and bolster reliability. The original 1L engine prototype was prone to mechanical failure, but the 800cc engine was as reliable as a Toyota.



The biggest trouble the developers had when developing the car had to do with the front fascia - as distinct as they are, they proved problematic. An early prototype of the headlights produced some sort of anomaly that the engineers refused to discuss in post-launch interviews - although the rumour mill says it had something to do with one of the wheel arches attempting its best imitation of gelatin while the vehicle was stationary. Later revisions of the headlight design resolved this issue, and the car was swiftly pushed to production. The 800I would remain in production until 1971 with little change.

I’m looking forward to what this collaboration produces. The name is kinda… hmmm… idk, interesting lol

But, the first car is quite a marvel. Good work, guys!

A lightweight mid-engined sports car with modest power? Sounds like fun to me!

Adonijin Dallang Adventure

In 1968, Adonijin announced it was to begin development on a new, compact 4x4 intended to rival the then-current Jeep’s offroading capabilities while keeping to their small-car philosophy. The end result of that project, the Dallang Adventure, arrived in 1970. It became apparent almost immediately that Adonijin had done something incredible - the Dallang was everything they had announced and more.


It came in at a featherweight 882.8kg, and boasted a 2 litre boxer producing a mild 67 HP and a surprising 103 ft-lbs of torque going to all four corners of the vehicle.


The Dallang was praised for its remarkable offroading ability, being able to tackle even the hazardous trails without breaking a sweat. It was capable of scaling a 40 degree (or nearly 100%) slope without too much difficulty, and its small dimensions allowed it to handle narrower trails and tighter bends that its peers couldn’t.


The Dallang sold quite well in its first year, guaranteeing a future for the little off-roader and putting tremendous pressure on Jeep to keep up.

I love it, it’s like an old Patrol and an old Land Cruiser and an old Jeep and I love all of those!

I’m honestly very proud of how the Dallang turned out mechanically - it really can climb and drive in some of the roughest conditions on BeamNG without flinching. I distinctly remember during the driving test of the prototype being very impressed by its ability to get up and go in most conditions.
