still learning the game, but I did manage to make a reasonable first car. Need more practice with Automation. The idea behind the design was a sort of crazy over the top hot hatch, completely unrealistic for the most part. Might post some more stuff when I get to the campaign. I’ll probably remake this design later on and try and make it better overall. Some Ideas I had for the design are missing because they don’t exist in automation(yet).
Atlas Delta VT:
A high performance version of the mainstream Delta. The Delta VT is the ultimate evolution of the delta, pushing the envelope even more than the standard V model below it. Gone is the 2.0L Inline 6 twin turbo, replaced by with the 3.5L FSI DOHC V8 found in the Atlas Vortex sports car. The body has been updated with a wide body kit inspired by the body work found on the Delta X rally car. Carbon ceramic brakes and the lightweight alloy rims finish up the package. Also an optional track day pack is available which includes an additional set of rims fitted with track only racing slicks for superior control and fully adjustable spoiler that has been tuned by the Altas racing team.
I was inspired by the Juke R that nissan made when making this. The V8 design is loosely based on specs for Audi’s 4.2L FSI 40V flatplane V8 used in the Audi RS5. Its a 3.5L 40V v8 90 that produces 350hp at around 8800RPM naturally aspirated.
Atlas automotive™ company quick description:
Atlas motor company based in Canada first started in 1968, as a company producing Le Mans and gt1 cars. They also provided engine expertise on contract with certain companies, providing tuning, dyno testing, or even from scratch motors to the customers demands. The success in the racing scene pushed atlas to produce a road going version of the racing body used by a company for a limited production in 1972. This first car was named the Atlas Velocity 736 edition(7:36 being the time the early hyper car set around the infamous Nurburgring in Germany). The fifteen examples were quickly sold(with the Chassis #000 of 015 being kept with the company in the main headquarters lobby) and atlas began to consider their future in the automotive industry.
Another car wouldn’t follow until 1984 with the Atlas Vector V16, which was once again based on a modified version of the Le Mans race car Atlas produced. This time 50 examples were produced with moderate success. This was the first V16 engine that Atlas had produced and it was rather unsuited for anything other than track work. After almost a year of developments a upgrade program was offered to Vector V16 owners to fix the engines issues and provide a better road going experience. The new upgrades were very appreciated, however it didn’t do much to repair Atlas’ damaged reputation.
Later on Atlas would create the Velocity parts division in 1994 to help back their racing teams and new plans for automotive production. The Atlas delta hatchback was one of the first cars produced by Atlas in 1997(alongside the Atlas Vortex sports car(which was thought by many to be the spiritual successor to the 1984 Vector V16)).
Atlas’ slogan, based on their racing heritage, was “uncompromising performance, no matter the platform.”(later shortened to Uncompromising performance)
if you have any tips to help me out, I could use them. Let me know on the history I just wrote it up quick and I could use some feedback.
