Previous Round

Like with all CSRs, If you are not sure about the rules of CSR, it would be greatly appreciated if you read the rules by clicking this link here. If you are still confused, you can also ask here!

CSR 101: Dreams of Anime

August 2013, some place in South Wales

“Emiri Midori” (Emily Green) is a 20 year old student at Cardiff University. She is a weeb. A huge weeb. She is obsessed with Japan and all that surrounds it.

At the moment she owns a 2008 Automan Aveanto, which she bought used for 3000 when she turned 18. The Aveanto was cheap, cute and nice to drive, but it spent far too much time at the garage. Every other week something would cease to work or fall off.
Turns out, it was cheap for a reason, as the Aveantos had a very bad reputation for falling apart after 3 years, and back then she wasn’t aware since the car was still relatively recent, so not as many faults were reported.
By now, she has had enough of the Automan, now covered in anime bumper stickers and with a dakimakura of her anime crush in the passenger seat. The unreliability meant she was late far too often, both to work and to lectures. She needs a new car, and she needs it now.

Her best friend, a normal Japanese man, Haruki Fujikawa, of which she works with at times has some knowledge on cars, as so she came to him for suggestions on what she should look for in a car.

Emiri: “So I need jidousha, my Automan has cost far too much to keep on the road!”

Haruki: “I am not a mechanic but I do know that a Japanese car is very reliable.”

Emiri: fangirling “I love Japan! Their cars must be as great as their anime!”

Haruki: even more confused “Ok…”

Emiri: “So I should look at something reliable, but also nicer than my broken Automan?”

Haruki: “Yes, exactly. Do not be afraid to spend some more money, a high quality car is not always cheap.”

JUDGMENT:

She wants a car which is reliable, long lasting and efficient with good comfort and a little driving fun, while remaining reasonably affordable.

PRIORITIES:

DESIGN: Emiri-chan somewhat wants something “cute” like an anime character, but also remains period correct. Even if you are making something miserable, at least it should look good. ADD EFFORT! Low effort designs will not resonate well with her at all and will lead to a bin.

Reliability: The Automan’s unreliability has left her very irritated at the bakas who make Automans, and as so she wants a car that will last a long time with minimal issues. After all, nothing’s worse than a car which spends more time at the dealership than the road… Environmental resistance also matters, she does want her car to last and hold value after all!

Drivability: Drivability is an important factor. Emiri-chan is still young, don’t expect her to be good at handling immense oversteer. But she doesn’t want a car which just ploughs through turns. She can drive manual or automatic, but manual is preferable since she finds it more fun for some reason.

Comfort: The Automan was bearable, but more recently she has been driving through long trips and as so comfort is valuable to her.

Fuel economy: This car will be a large expenditure, as so she will be running on a tight budget for the first months of ownership, and fuel is expensive in the UK so fuel economy is valuable.

Size: Too large a vehicle will prove very hard to drive in UK roads, especially dense, urban roads.

Performance: Her previous Automan had 90hp, and was enough to get her from A to B, with an acceleration of 14 seconds to 60mph. Some performance is appreciated, but too much engine power will be very hard to insure and as so expensive to run .

Practicality: 4 seats minimum. She doesn’t carry much but sometimes she does take some manga and dakimakuras with her, so it is still somewhat valued.

Sportiness: Not much, but she does want a little of fun.

RESTRICTIONS:

General restrictions:

Trim year must be 2013

Engine variant year must be 2013

Must use 95RON unleaded, or be capable of running on 95RON

3-way catalytic converters mandatory (standard 3 way or high-flow are permitted)

At least one muffler is required.

Must have ABS at least

Semi-slick tyres will lead to instabin.

Sports compounds are allowed but will lead to a penalty.

Overly minmax choices will be looked upon with suspicion, possibly leading to bin.

Statistical restrictions:

-Emissions (trim) 100 max

-Loudness (engine), max 35

-Engine ET: 110 max

-Trim ET: 110 max

-Trim material costs: 6000 max (Automation currency)

-Sportiness: At least 2.5

-Comfort: At least 20

-Safety: At least 45

[FINISHED] CSR 102 - A Free Decision
#2

AWWWW YISS LET’S GO BOYS


#3

I might have to enter this CSR to try and avoid such degeneracy in future CSR’s.


#4

What would be the maximum allowed wheelbase?


#5

would’ve been funnier if Emiri bought the car Peter sold off in CSR 100


#6

lol


#7

(Japanese-UK weeb hatchback coming soon™)


#8

How many doors does Emily need? 4 or more? If so, does she actually need a hatchback or sedan instead of an SUV, MPV or crossover?

Moreover, given that Emily won’t be going off-road, I don’t think chunky off-road tires should be allowed for this round. Besides, given that baka is Japanese for “fool”, why not use that word as a term for all the entries in the hall of shame?


#9

inb4 someone submits the iconic weeb car, the AE86!

I’m assuming stable entries are OK also, just that open beta is preferred?

(Aspire Shinjuku Edition ad in Japan)

2013 Permata Aspire ES Turbo Shinjuku Edition

Some backstory for the car, which is pretty pointless here

Mar 2011: Malaysian automaker Permata released it’s third and final facelift of the 2nd gen Permata, which was released on 1997. It’s next gen successor wouldn’t come until 2015.

May 2011: Permata announced that they decided to expand it’s business to China, Korea and Japan by 2013 (Although the plan to sell cars to Korea was later scrapped due to legal issues). Meanwhile, a factory was made in Henan, China, and it was designed as Permata’s production hub for the East Asian market.

Dec 2012: Permata officially launches the brand to Japan. Public reactions were unsurprisingly quiet.

Jan 2013: Permata launches an anime-themed “Excite” campaign in Japan, alongside this a mascot (which is that anime girl you have seen) is created to promote the brand. Suddenly public interest about the company gained.

Mar 2013: Permata Aspire officially launched in Japan. Sales of the car were unexpectedly decent.

May 2013: Permata released the Shinjuku Edition of the Aspire to the Japanese market.

June 2013: A British importer has decided to import several Aspire Shinjuku Editions to the British market, with government approval.


Firstly, why you’re using the same car from CSR100 again, this time in a different form?

Why you care about it? Is there’s any law prohibiting me to do this?

So, is this a Japanese car?

Read the (pointless) backstory again.

But it’s from a Malaysian car company…

Oh, god. It’s indeed a Malaysian hatchback, but it’s only for sale in Japan. Like I said, just read that backstory AGAIN.

Does any Malaysian car company actually sells cars in Japan? Are you an idiot?

Bruh. WTF.
BTW Proton is a goddamn Malaysian automaker, you a******.

Okay, you win. Just give me the specs please.

98kW 1.5 liter inline-3 turbo engine with direct injection. 6-speed DCT. Weighs less than 1.2 tonnes. 6.5 liters per 100 kilometers fuel effiency. Standard ESC. And a ride tuned for both comfort and sportiness.

And final questions, why there’s is an anime girl on the pic and who is she?

Because Japan lol. As for the girl’s name, I just have no idea at all. You can give her any name you like, I have nothing against it.


le me leaves the scene
Me: cyka blyat, you hoser keeps talking Scheiße again, I’ll will beat you wan*er up.


Forget about the (stupid) questions, here's some pictures for y'all.


Automation Social Media Coverage
#12

is this the price from the car menu, or the actual material cost (sorry if imm being dumb)?


#13

The price of the car menu is actually the car sale price, with markup applied. By material costs, he means actual material costs


#14


(GrApHiCdEsIgNiSmYpAsSiOn)

Is it Japanese?
Yes, it was designed and built in Japan.

But it’s a Dutch company? LARGE THONCC
It was designed by the Japanese Division.

What’s this Manga instruction thingy?
It’s basically a little comic of an anime girl going around the car and telling you about it.

But can it outrun a 100 year old vampire in an old british luxobarge?
Probably, it should be able to at least reach 200Km/h with it’s 101hp.

Yakaza is bringing something special to the table.

Submissions are open!

Suggestions may no longer be made. The rules are finalised.
