It is the 90s and your company is planning to come back to the british family car market with a new model in the C- or D-segment. The previous model generation has not done well, thus a structured project has been laid out by your supervisors to re-gain as many customers as possible. You will show a concept of the car design to the public at the London Motorfair in 1993 to get a feeling if the public likes it or not.
- model year 1993
- car length at least 4.20 m (as shown in the final “Design” tab)
- car body from 1984 or later
- one variant of the used body must have at least 4 doors. Vans/MPVs/SUVs might not be beneficial in the later part of the challenge - you have been warned.
- chassis options: make appropriate choices so that you can turn this car into a sellable family car later on. This will be required to be successful later in the technical part of the competition. You may change your choices in part II, though, in case you think it is necessary.
Banned car bodies:
In a poll, every participant will give a score between 1 and 5 to all entries depending on how they like the design. Try to be fair and consistent in your voting. You will vote for your own car, too, to simplify the judgement. If everybody gives their own car 5 points, this effect will level out over the whole field, so just do it. Only challenge participants are allowed to vote.
In the end, not the star rating is relevant to your Part I score, only the relative rank of the car is relevant. So don’t be afraid to enter a less nice looking car - it might still score a lot of points for this part of the challenge. And there’s the technical parts still coming up!
Send your exported car file (no multiple entries, as usual) in a private message to me with the following naming convention:
Model name: Rivals - “your name”
Trim name: “your complete car name”
Ads are not required, but encouraged in order to build up some awareness in the community about your future moneymaker.
DEADLINE (Part I): 17th of July 2020, 06:00 a.m. CEST
DEADLINE (Part II): 27th of July 2020, 06:00 a.m. CEST
DEADLINE (Part III): 7th of August 2020, 06:00 a.m. CEST

Please note that one 5-star rating for each player is not counted (the vote for yourself), even though shown as a vote in the table. One player (WelcometoCostcoILU) is out of the challenge, due to not voting and not providing a car for Part II.
