#417

#DETROIT MOTOR SHOW : Saminda surprise Americans with the C5000R, for the first time CThousandR to be sold in US, under Saminda’s luxury division, Auxuras.

At the 2017 Detroit Motor Show, Saminda unveiled its 2019 C5000R which has stopped production since 10 years ago, will finally be available in the US for the first time.

“Teiko Sakahashi, CEO of American Saminda said that ''We’re happy to inform our US enthusiasts that the long wait for the forbidden fruit of Saminda CThousandR performance is nearly over.”

The CThousandR lineup, long regarded as one of the kingpins of the performance market, it’s unique to Saminda lineup due to it RWD platform which Saminda cars rarely have, is expected to live up to its lofty reputation.

Under the hood of the C5000R is an Swindon UK-built, 2.0-liter i-VIC ProAIR turbocharged engine mated to 2 electric motor pushing out 370 horsepower. The powerful engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission driving the rear wheels.

Unfortunately, the C2000R is only for the European market and will be releasing in Q1 of 2018, we can expect to see the C5000R on U.S roads around 2019-2020.

Saminda version for the European market will reveal in Frankfurt Motor Show this coming year.

Hm… a few questions arise.

  1. What are the physical dimensions?
  2. What do you estimate the pricing to be?
  3. What real-life competitors does the C5kR have/who are you trying to sell it to?

#419
  1. dimensions is around the size of an audi a5 sportback

  2. the C2000R cost around £34,990 and £39,990, the C5000R is expected to cost more than £40k

  3. the car doesn’t really have a competitor yet, but we are trying to sell to people who are looking at cars like 340i, S5 or C400 with a much sportier driving experience and much advanced technology (with electric motors)


#420

Now that’s interesting, because if this is an A5 sized car and it’s gonna cost “over £40k”, it could well end up being cheaper than a lot of the other midsize performance vehicles.

And we all love a bargain…

The 2018 ETL Spec-V will be the set to be the first performance variant for Auxuras, the most aggressive and sporty Auxuras sedan ever

Auxuras finally joins the high-performance luxury car fray today with the introduction of the 2018 ETL Spec-V

Auxuras has long competed in the luxury car market, but traditionally it didn’t have much to offer consumers who wanted a vehicle with exceptionally high performance. That’s all changed with the recent introduction of the Auxuras ETL Spec-V. Based on the regular ETL luxury sedan, the ETL Spec-V will comes with a V6 twin turbo engine, a track-tuned suspension, stronger brakes and special interior and exterior styling details. The ETL Spec-V does indeed offer a serious, no-compromises driving experience for hard-core enthusiasts.

Twin-Turbo V6 engine, from the legendary CZ6

Under the ETL Spec-V hood is a 3.5-liter V6 Twin-Turbo engine which is the same engine as the CZ6 but was de-tuned to produce a respectable 420 horsepower and 550 nm of torque. The transmission is an eight-speed automatic capable of 0.1-second shifts, controlled by paddle shifters on the steering wheel. Other high-performance features include engine oil and transmission fluid coolers and Super Control All Wheel drive

Agressive Styling, New Spider grille design from the Saminda F-Concept

The styling has also gotten the high-performance treatment with the quad tailpipes. For Auxuras’ first leap into the ultra-performance arena.

Pricing?

No official statement from Auxuras but you can expect it will cost around US$60,000-$70,000.

I’ve never seen anything from Saminda-Auxuras that was designed in UE4 up to now - this ETL Spec-V looks like a good start, and clearly shows that the revered Japanese marque has finally gotten its mojo back after a long time in the doldrums! On looks and specs alone, it deserves to lock horns with the Zenshi Nimessa Newman on the road and at the track. I can’t wait to see both of these reimagined executive samurais face off against each other!


#431

The ETL is a Luxury Mid-Size sedan, the ITL Spec-V will be more suitable against Zenshi Nimessa.

It will be in preview soon with more than 350bhp.


#432

Sooo ETL is sth like BMW 3 series?


#433

Ya know @Starfish94, if you ever fancied seeing how the Spec-V compared against rival mid-size sports sedans, a certain Mr Anderson is only ever a phone call away.


#434

@szafirowy01 5 Series*

@DeusExMackia Am honor to give Mr Anderson a ETL Spec-V to review, onces it’s ready to go production we will send you one!


#435

Awesome to here my friend, I he looks forward to it!
