BF94387's Lore and Designs


#1

Hey!

I’ve built up a bit if a collection of builds, and I think it’s time to share some of them with the community

I’ve made a few fantasy manufacturers that I base my builds around, the main one at the moment is DMU but I’ve got some other things in the works…

I’m going to try and set this all out efficiently so its easy to read and navigate, unlike some other posts which are just a complete mess :joy:

Note that this is still largely under construction, and i’m still working on it. So there’s a lot of stuff that is “under construction” including most of the car pages.

Manufacturers

DMU AG
Ziamena Automobili
Aura


#2

DMU AG is a premium automotive manufacturer based in Duisburg, Germany. Founded by in 1949 and active to this day, DMU produces automobiles predominantly for the premium market.

The name DMU stands for Duisburg Motor Unternehmen [German], translating to “Duisburg Motor Company” [English].

Subsidiaries:

EXR

EXR


EXR are a boutique performance tuning branch of DMU founded in 1963. The acronym stands for Exklusive Rennarbeiten [German] translating to Exclusive Race works [English]. They mainly modify standard DMU models for performance, including engine tuning, boutique engine, suspension works, bodywork and aerodynamics.

They do a lot of custom work as well, completing many one off “special” orders. As said before, they primarily work on DMUs; however some customers have approached EXR with commissions, and their unofficial slogan speaks for itself: “Sie haben das Geld, Sie haben es getan” [you have the money, you have it done]. So if you have the funds, arrangements can be made…


Vehicles [chronological]

(More cars will be added as I design them)

1952 D6

DMU D6


The first production vehicle to come from DMU, the D6 is a midsize premium sedan, mainly fitted with the I640H2 motor, a decently powerful inline 6.

The I640H2 follows the typical DMU engine naming scheme:

I6 = Engine type, (inline 6)
40 = 4 litre (cc /100)
H = Overhead cam
2 = 2 valve

Notable features found in all models in the D6 range include galvanised chassis, double-wishbone/semi-trailing suspension.

Variants:

D6 A

Base model, with standard interior. Notable features are the auto two speed transmission.

Fitted with the I640H2-D, the base variant of the I640H2 series.

D6 S

Sportier and more premium variant, notably with the I640H2-S, premium interior and a much better four speed manual.

Capable of 195 Km/h and 0-100 in 10.5 seconds. How outrageously shporty!

DMU D6 D

The next year brought a wagon variant, much to the joy of the old grey-haired wagon enthusiasts (myself included, although I am neither of those two things)

This model is essentially a wagon version of the D6 A, you know, 2 speed auto and the good old I640H2-D.

D6 SD

Yes, it had to be done. A wagon variant of the D6-S. Nothing more needs to be said.

There will potentially be some more variants, although I might leave the ultra luxe demographic for another build.


1961 J6

J6

The J6 is the lower range premium sedan platform from DMU in 1961. It’s conceptually similar to the D6, having an identical chassis formula (Galvanised steel ladder frame) and a similar suspension setup (Double wishbone/Semi trailing arm.).

It’s also equipped with advanced safety in all variants.

It’s mainly fitted with the I630DA2 motor, a 3 litre inline 6 sporting direct acting overhead cams.

J6 A

The base model, although it still has a premium interior and radio.

Equipped with the base I630DA2-A, mated to a 3 speed auto. Not a powerhouse, but adequate for the base trim

J6 D

Wagon variant of the J6 A, slightly different suspension setup; slightly higher ride height for better ground clearance.

Equipped with the same I630DA2-A found in the J6 A.

J6 S

The shport coupe variant, featuring a real gearbox (4 speed manual), 17 inch wheels, sports compound tires, sporty suspension tune and of course, the I630DA2-S, making 135hp!


Then EXR got their filthy hands on it:

J6 EXR

This was one of EXR’s first projects, and they were ready to go all out. They scrapped the I630H2 from the original J6, and installed their crazy EXR built V838H4, a 3.8 litre v8 producing just less than double the horsepower of the I630H2-S. Other modifications include larger tires, aggressive suspension, magnesium wheels, custom bodywork/widebody and of course, the EXR engineers secret sauce: A lockable diff for maximum car-park fun.

1963 L6

L6 A

The 60s called, and they wanted a sports car. So DMU had to answer.

Here is the base model L6, fitted with a 2 litre inline 6 that makes 124 hp.

0-100 happens in 7.7 seconds, and the L6-A has a top speed of 183 km/h.


L6-S

Sport model, now with 137hp, higher redline, premium radio, bigger tires and other assorted upgrades.

0-100 now happens in 6.9 seconds



L6 EXR
The madmen at EXR got their hands on the L6, and dropped the V838H4-EXR motor (Orignally designed for the J6-EXR). While the big v8 is far heavier, it has almost double the power of the L6-A.

Other upgrades include EXR widebody, much wider tires, a handmade interior, custom body styling and more.
This turns the L6 into a supercar ahead of it’s time.

0-100 happens in 5.3 seconds, and tops out at 225 km/h.
(and it has a lockable diff… you know what that means :joy:)

1988 KT5

The KT5 is a premium midsize sedan/wagon featuring a turbo charged inline 5.
It can be compared to the BMW e30, Mercedes 190 E and the Audi 90.

KT5 A

The base model. Mainly tuned for economy, although still has a premium touch.



KT5 S

The sport variant, with more than 50% power increase, sports suspension, sports tires and sports body styling.


KT5 SD

A wagon variant of the Schport model. Awesome.



KT5 EXR

DTM homoligation special. Now with 241hp and custom EXR bodywork/aero.



KT5 EXRD

Of course, it had to be done. In all of it’s glory:
