ROUND I, PART III
Dario: Woof, that took a long time!
Dario: Oh great…
At this point, Dario takes out his gun, points it upwards and pulls the trigger.
Sierrabar: Zzzzzz…don’t waste my bullets…zzzzzzz
Dario: Oh well, there goes my attempt at entertaining the grandmas in the audience.

@Mythrin - Legore Monterosa 760 GTSi
The Legore Monterosa is a bargain once you sit in it.
Dario: Ooh, this one seems to drive and handle excellently!
Sierrabar: Other than being fit for you, what does it have for me?
Dario: It has a great interior and seems to be pretty comfortable, I guess.
Sierrabar: Seems good so far, not mentioning the design which is also good.
Dario: I presume this one goes through then?
The Legore Monterosa has made it to the finals.
@Rk38 - DHB DJ774G 6.0
While reading about the next car, Dario receives a phone call. Whipping out his Rotomola DynoTEC brick, he answers the call.
Sierrabar: Who’s calling you?
Dario: …grey import…Anikatia…bunch of letters…
Dario: Hangs up - Okay, I got a call from Diaz, saying he just unloaded a DHB on the docks. It’s practically brand new and has a V8…
Sierrabar: What, you want me to take a look at it?
Dario: Yes, that’s the point I was trying to make.
Sierrabar: Ahh fine.
The DHB DJ774 has made it to the finals.
@goblin95 & @Centurion_23 - Zimmer-Wagner L846i
The Zimmer-Wagner is stylish, comfortable and quick.
Dario: Congrats Mablo, this one is relatively cheap, quick and has a great interior.
Sierrabar: That’s all good, I’m just more intrigued with the compliments about its reliability.
Dario: The spoiler might seem a bit like overkill… but really, that’s my only complaint here.
The Zimmer-Wagner L846i has made it to the finals.
@Mikonp7 - Mikaza P (4DEU)
The Mikaza P brings superb handling for a lower price.
-Interior and luggage space
Sierrabar: Look at this thing, the Japanese have made something that doesn’t look like an appliance!
Dario: That’s offensive. Anyways, the interior equipment and quality is good but not as good as in the Zimmer-Wagner. It’s also slightly more expensive and costlier to run.
Sierrabar: What a shame, I really liked the look of this one.
Dario: It’s slower too.
Sierrabar: I got what you were saying before, no need to rub it in.
The Mikaza P has not made it to the finals.
@MasterDoggo - Banthaar Vanter
The Banthaar Vanter is another good performer.
+Safety equipment and rating
Sierrabar: Look at this, it looks classy and nice!
Dario: It’s pretty quick but then again, the handling apparently falls flat. Which doesn’t come as surprise considering that it’s such a luxury car actually - though it is a surprise that the suspension isn’t all that soft for a car like this.
Sierrabar: It says here that the Vanter is “perhaps another benchmark for other cars, in the same vein as the Honghu and the Anhultz”. I want something better than just a benchmark.
The Banthaat Vanter has not made it to the finals.
@saddiseased - Kansei Aspera
Another relatively cheap car, the Kansei Aspera is surprisingly comfortable.
Sierrabar: My god if I’m not in love with the look of this one… it’s just so good.
Dario: Let me ruin this one for you, they’ve gone the cheap route with a mediocre interior and quite a small V8. That means it goes from 0 to 60 in 8 seconds.
Sierrabar: Oh what a ruiner of fun you happen to be.
Dario: It’s pretty cheap to run and has AWD, but I don’t think that’s really enough to tie you back in, is it?
The Kansei Aspera has not made it to the finals.
@zschmeez - Albatross Mammoth
The Albatross Mammoth is the only offroader in the test, and that shows.
Sierrabar: Hmm, perhaps I could go for something huge like this. Though since it is what it is, the interior and design aren’t really on par with these other luxury sedans.
Dario: Well it’s big so it’s not going to be fun to drive and it’s not very fast either. I don’t want it.
Sierrabar: Here’s the one time I’m going to agree with you.
The Albatross Mammoth has not made it to the finals.
@N_A997 - TME MS
Even with good sides, the TME MS definitely isn’t for everyone.
Sierrabar: My god, why are the tires so big.
Dario: The interior is good but my god the suspension has not been tuned for comfort.
Sierrabar: Why did they think this design works…
Dario: It’s decently quick and gets decent fuel economy too.
Sierrabar: Honestly though, what are those tires.
The TME MS has not made it to the finals.
@Ludvig - Turin Turamba
The Turin Turamba is certainly an odd car.
-Oh god the design
Dario: This doesn’t seem bad. It’s quick, comfo-
Sierrabar: I refuse to sit in a car which looks like it came out of Enderjeds junkyard.
Dario: Oh come on, it’s not that bad!
Sierrabar: Keep telling yourself that.
The Turin Turamba has not made it to the finals.
The Zenith Manhattan is another example of the classic American luxury car.
Sierrabar: This seems good. Comfortable, has a nice interior.
Dario: Hmm… it’s not that fast.
Sierrabar: What? Seems perfectly to me.
Dario: I mean in the sense when you compare it to what else we’re planning to drive.
Sierrabar: Okay, whatever you think. I’m more worried about this line however - “the engine is not all too quiet, a shame considering the rather uninspiring engine noise”.
Dario: Oh dear, it’s not even all that nice to drive. I’m not sure about this.
Sierrabar: Well I like it. I’m not craving for it, but I like it.
Dario: That’s a 50/50 split here, man.
The Zenith Manhattan has not made it to the finals.
The Warren Sutherland is surprisingly cheap, considering the equipment.
-High running costs
Sierrabar: And another looker here, this looks really rather fantastic.
Dario: I agree, it’s pretty rad.
Sierrabar: Other than the design… that suspension is not suited for a luxury car like this one. Running this thing won’t be incredibly cheap either, but I guess that’s not a big issue.
Dario: It’s quick, driving it wouldn’t be anything special though.
Sierrabar: That presumably sums it up then.
_ The Warren Sutherland has not made it to the finals._
@Arvok1 - Alfora Meteora
The Alfora Meteora is by far the least nice car to be in when it comes to this test.
Sierrabar: Oh my god… this interior would fit something a plebian would drive and I’m not even going to comment on how it describes the test drivers back after a long trip.
Dario: I guess if you’d have to set a numerical value to the ride of this thing, it’ll be about 6 maybe?
The Alfora Meteora has not made it to the finals.
@GrandsonPyrodrone - Irmingard A750MG
The Irmingard A750MG is another cheaper car here.
Dario: You won’t like this chief, there’s a decent interior here for the sake of being cheaper.
Sierrabar: First of all, don’t call me chief. Second of all, yes I would have preferred a better interior for more money. The real downfall is the suspension however, it’s just not all that comfortable.
The Irmingard A750MG has not made it to the finals.
@patridam - Hirondelle Galahad SLS
The Hirondelle Galahad SLS shines with its interior, and doesn’t make itself stand out anywhere else.
-Cheap safety equipment
Sierrabar: So from what I can gather, it’s comfortable and has a great interior and after that it’s pretty average.
Dario: Yep, I think you’re right. Decently quick, decently reliable and they’ve skimped out a bit with the safety here.
The Hirondelle Galahad has not made it to the finals.
@Lordred - LHE Orbital
The LHE Orbital is another good car, with not much making it stand out.
Sierrabar: Oh my, this is another 50/50 car. It’s decently nice to sit in but not too reliable. It’s pretty cheap to buy but not that cheap to run.
Dario: It’s pretty quick but handling ain’t nothing to brag about.
Sierrabar: Could you not interrupt me when I’m speaking?!
The LHE Orbital has not made it to the finals.
@cake_ape - Mons Icarus
The Mons Icarus evens out in terms of quality.
Sierrabar: Well it’s time to pop the champagne Dario because we’re at the last car baby, and it’s… not good enough.
Dario: It’s quick, I’ll give 'em that - too bad the brakes are going to be made of burnt dust once I’d inevitably go fast in it though, these brakes fade quickly.
Sierrabar: It has its flaws. Do you have anything else to say?
Dario: No, not really.
The Mons Icarus has not made it to the finals.
Sierrabar: Well, that was a whole lot of reading you just made me do. Now, what did we shortlist?
Dario: I didn’t keep tra-
