That’s hot.


#84

W-what? A sensible Arion?
Looks hawt regardless, great use of those new rims


#85

Thank you both for your comments! I’m so glad about the new rims, I love the Piazza Waffles, and will be using them on quite a few more Arion cars :wink:

And yes! Sensible, roomy, comfortable and easily drivable, but most importantly fun and cheap, but only in price not quality! Hehe. ^V^

Arion Galaxy - 3.2L “316” V16 - Luxury {1988}

Featured in Arion British Racing Green Metallic III

With the old Arion lineup getting cut off for a new era, the second to join in was the new Arion Galaxy. Retaining to it’s routes all the way from the late 40’s. This luxury premium has the snazzy looks, enough chrome to dazzle, and enough performance to pull down the motorways.

Featured in Arion Solde Blue II

The second generation Galaxy was quite a change up in style from it’s first back in '49. With new, sleeker, yet less curvy lines the new Galaxy was well received, and had an amazing markup, gaining instant popularity from it’s rather low price to enter the luxury car market.

Featured in Arion Brilliant Blue

With the Mythos’ production at an end, there was no real sports sedan from Arion till the Galaxy Sport. With the original comfortable, smooth, able 184hp 3.2 V16 engine tuned by Cosmos to having a whopping 335hp, and weight reduction from sports seating and trim, the Galaxy Sport did prove to be a mighty car, even with it’s heavy weight.

Featured in Arion Hellfire

The Sport model could hit a top speed of 166mph, 0-62mph within 5 seconds (4.90s) and an impressive 13.27s at the 1/4 mile. Around the airfield it got a neat 1:24.75s.

Featured in Arion Cosmos Pearl II

The Sport model got upgraded again in a limited trim: the Cosmos SuperSport. A small production run of 1,000 Cosmo Supersports were produced, and it helped make it one of the most desirable luxury sports sedans ever made, from it’s uniqueness, to rarity and overall outstanding comfort and prestige, it ranked highly in the league of racy sedans.

Featured in Arion Sterling Silver III

The Cosmos wasn’t all about looks and creature comforts however. The performance was boosted slightly further than the sport: It could hit an improved top speed of 174mph, 0-62mph in a quick 4.60s and a lightly improved 13.15s at the 1/4 mile. Around the airfield it got a 1:23.02s, a time not to be messed all things considered.

Returning to the MKI’s routes: This Galaxy was made longer and more spaced out inside, converted into a stretch limousine almost. It has a lot more room and comforts than the standard GL, some even included internal fax machines!

How the hell this makes me remind more of a 2010’s car rather than a 1980’s one?
Nice job though.

Arion Dune - 3.2L “320” V8 - Standard TwinTurbo {1988}

Featured in Arion Brilliant Blue

In 1988, Arion produced their first truck: The Dune. This was a premium truck with high quality materials, intended for farmers and workers who want a bit more luxury over anything else in the market, although amazingly many civilians also wanted one just for the snazzy styling.

Featured in Arion Wine Red Pearl II & Arion Black two tone

The Dune was released as a single and dual cab, as well as SUV for the GL model only. The dual cab had 4 seats but less space in the rear tub for anything. It aced towing and load weights all around models, with the maximum towing weight of upwards of 1,600kg and maximum weight load of over 2,900kg!

Featured in Arion Grey Monotone & Arion Black two tone

Thanks to this new addition to the Arion family, it brought quite a lot of new investors, who had chats with Arion. It seemed they wanted a more “base” model edition for use in industry from the majority of feedback, and so they delivered: Producing a less premium Arion Dune Industrial edition too.

Featured in Arion British Racing Green Metallic III

Having being an Arion car, the brand wanted to have a high end GL model just for good measure. It didn’t sell as well as the more cheaper, standard trucks in comparison to the market, but became an instant cult classic for being so out there in it’s own niche.

Along with the dual cab GL, there was the SUV version, having more room in the back as well as lots of windows and dual sunroofs. It was more popular than the dual cab for being a bit more comfortable and affordable as well as slightly better MPGs.

As the Arion investors requested, the Dune Industrial was a more low-end base edition to be used for companies and businesses, but was also sold to the public too. It came with base steel wheels and no roof light bar, that was an extra fitting of £650.

Arion Perseus - 2.0L “199” V6 - Standard TwinTurbo {1988}

Featured in Arion Off-Purple

Brought in as a higher class, sportier more luxury sports car, the Perseus sat just above the Spica both in performance and comfort not to mention price too. The stylists at Arion worked to try make the Perseus a lot more desirable, creating a sleeker yet roomy body, enhanced further by the giant panoramic roof and chrome “Arion bullet” accenting. The grill and bumpers trim are somewhat a throwback to the 50/60’s era Arion cars, featuring a similar bar grid and thick chrome.

Featured in Arion Wine Red Pearl II

The Perseus has a perky 2.0L V6 TwinTurbo with a VVL intake manifold aiding it at lower RPM to provide a sporty experience. Equipped with 18 inch sports wheels and tyres and a heavy front end, the FF powertrain proved it’s self worthy with a lap time around the Airfield track of 1:29.02, 0-62 of just under 7 seconds (6.91s) and top speed of 141mph.

Featured in Arion Grey Monotone

The interesting hood had quite the overhang which was designed like so to act as a front lip, helping scoop the air to give more downforce than a smooth hood would. But you cannot miss the outright unique panoramic glass roof, definitely an eye-catching spectacle about the Perseus compared to any competitor.

As per tradition now with all Arion models of this era, the Perseus featured in a Grand Limousine (GL) trim, having a more luxurious design with additional chrome fittings, the fancy GL rims, and of course a fully hand made interior customised to each buyers own vision in terms of colour and materials.

Featured in Arion Deep Ruby

Along with the Perseus came new sparkly pearl paint tones; Deep Ruby, Emerald Dusk & Off-Purple. The GL was the only trim to come in Deep Ruby & Emerald Dusk.

The much more dynamic track-oriented sport model was the variant most customers wanted, having body-colour trim and thicker wider tires with a tuned up engine it proved to do the best in the market.

Not only did it perform well in sales, but the Perseus Sport was a great track machine. It achieves 0-62mph in 5.82s, top speed of 148mph, and a speedy 1:26.08 lap time around the Airfield track.
