Bonham Cars


#42

Everything seems just great except for… a sports car engine in a luxury car - I mean the 502 hp I6.

I meant to get a screen cap of the torque curve, but I forgot to do that. The engine might have a high specific output, but the turbo spools nice and early, with a linear power crescendo and let’s not forget this is an inline 6 engine, meaning it’s very smooth.
As with the entire Kashmir line up, it gets impressive drivability and comfort scores in game, with great market scores.

But still, revving to 7900 rpm for peak power in a luxury car is a bit weird :wink:

Tell me what isn’t weird in the world of automation :wink:

The 2019 Bonham Orwell

Bonham Orwell 2.0 Balmoral in Tour de France Blue

Revised for 2019, the Bonham Orwell has moved the game on in terms of desirability in its class.
The brand new face, with full LED headlights and tail lights, give it a distinctive look, with family cues relating it directly to the top of the range Kashmir sedan, but with its own unique personality, as shown on the intricate DRL detailing.

Down the sides, the body sculpting continues with the carefully styled chrome add-ons and blacked out pillars, creating the impression of a floating roof, which can be specced in body colour, white or black.

At the rear, the car continues with the LED theme and also continues the distinctive Bonham look.

All in all, this is the first crossover you could actually want to buy.
