Arion Buckingham V '06

In late 2006, Arion’s highly prestigious Buckingham IV was replaced by the new Buckingham V. The latest model was a drastic change up from the previous, now being a 3.5m wheelbase, 6.43m long, monster of a car. The outlandish size of the car was comparable to the engine, having a 13L V16 with AWD. This combination lead to an extremely unique one-of-a-kind machine, the Buckingham V had many fans as well as it did enemies.

Despite the Buckingham V weighing 2824kg, it actually managed an incredible mileage of almost 40mpgs average. As well as the high mileage, it only produced 93.2 emissions. The greatness didn’t stop there either, thanks to the electromagnetic suspension which acted like air suspension, only much smoother with almost no feedback to the road, the driver and passengers could experience peace and tranquillity over any sort of bump in the road.

The Buckingham V redefined luxury car interiors, it featured the plushest of seats using highest quality Napa leather, making for stylish and comfortable lounger to go along with the elegantly smooth electronically adjusted suspension. Whilst enjoying the cushy journeys in the Buckingham V, the driver and passengers can embrace the euphoric surround sound system and even watch their favourite programs or even play videogames on the multifunctional TV screens fitted to the rear of the front seats, the screens featured the latest technology of HDMI for highest viewing quality.

Along with this release, many new Iridescent and Pearlescent colours were added to Arion’s colour lineup. These new hues were all very deep and luxurious, as well as this a first for Arion: Mystic Topaz is their one and only colourshift paint, having a mix of dark purple and golden rays of sunny gold over it.

Very long boi


#226

Not a huge fan of how long it is, and how the front and rear end clash together


#227

I wasn’t truly 100% set on the rear actually, but I didn’t really know how better to improve the look to represent front more… But thanks for the comment though!
