1999 Satsunai Hikari AXRS2 Ute

Why does this exist?

Honestly, we're not quite sure ourselves, though our best guess is "it involved a lot of sake." This is based on a variant of the standard Hikari sold on the South African market as a bakkie - a FWD coupe utility made on a compact car chassis. Then someone at the performance division decided to put their high-power AWD AXRS2 package onto the vehicle, and then someone else at product planning decided to sell the resulting abomination vehicle in the United States, incurring a 25% import tax.

So it at least has some performance to back up the bizarre looks?

The 2.0L inline-five is good for 370 horsepower and 283 lb-ft of torque with the AXRS2 turbo, and its five-speed manual and AWD system is good for 0-62 MPH in 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 155 MPH. Braking and cornering are also comparatively good, and compared to other "rally cars for the road" its payload and towing capacity are in a class of their own... though that probably shouldn't be a surprise, all things considered.

How well did it sell?

Not well at all. Most Americans barely knew what to make of it, and that was before they had to pay a 25% premium over the equivalent sedan/wagon versions. Officially, Satsunai estimates that less than 500 of these were sold in 1999, the only model year it was offered.

...where are the taillights?

They exist! They’re a bit shy though.

So how do you retire a van that has been the back bone of your country for the past decade?

Well if you are HAIJU you go all out to celebrate the best model in the company’s history with a bang. Haiju took a humble K3 and almost scrapped it completely. The economical and bullet proof straight 1.5 straight was replaced by a four liter twin turbo V8 that outputs around 340 horsepower and 540 newton meters of torque, this small change now propels the van to 60 in 5.3 seconds and tops out at 260 kph.

The use of double wishbones make the K3T handle a lot better and makes it a lot more comfortable than the regular K3, however its still a van so that does not mean a lot. It’s just like a deep cut is more conformable than the bubonic plague.

The interior was completely redone having now six captains chairs, full leather, fake wood and a premium cassette player. And because we are talking luxury, a sunroof would not be enough so the K3 also sports four safari windows.

What makes this van truly special is its rarity, Haiju only made 100 of them and most of them have ended up in hedges or ditches all over the place. Although there isn’t an official number of those remaining, the general consensus is that at least half of them are gone.

CBR Vesania

A modern revival of the Shelby Cobra concept. A lighweight,V8 engined coupe that it´s also comfortable enough to ride it for 2 hours drive it on a daily basis.

The car became an icon until a few cars crashed after it´s release. Apparently, the parking brake would engage after hitting a bump due to a design flaw and apparently that wasn´t the best thing to happen on a mountain road.

All the cars were recalled and the problem was fixed, but people got too afraid to buy them, and so 3 years later production was stopped and never resumed.

Minivan market in North America was booming in late 80s. Forea wanted a place in this fast growing market. All major competitors already had their offerings in this segment, so Forea needed something that will stand out. Protostar was launched in 1989 specifically for North American market . Its aerodynamic shape combined with advanced suspension and engines made it a strong competitor in the segment, however Forea was late to the party. It needed to persuade customers to buy it.
.


.

Few months after the launch Forea embarked on a “Tour of the America”. 5 Protostars were chosen for the trip along with a team of the slickest salespeople. All Protostars were in a different trim so they could appeal to a wider audience. In a span of a few months Protostars visited most of the biggest cities in North America.
.


.

By the time the tour was over orders started to go up. Tour showed customers that Protostar was reliable, comfortable, spacious… couple that with car-like driving dynamics, responsive and fuel efficient engines, Forea had a perfect activity vehicle. Ultimately Protostar was in production until 1996 when it was replaced by the second gen which was very successful.
.


.

Protostar would not be so successful if not for the cunning planning and ideas from the marketing department.
.

Features

All models are equipped with corner lights. There is also a feature which allows headlights to stay on up to a minute after the car was turned off. Rear sliding doors have a mechanism that locks them in place when opened. Protostar allows you to open rear glass for easier grocery loading. 3.2 V6 models have leather seats and premium sound system with digital instruments. Variable hydraulic steering is an optional extra which offers 2 types of steering feel. Second row has captains chairs that can rotate 270 degrees. Airplane style reading lights and air vent in 2nd and 3rd row are standard across the range.

1975 Famal GR

The most luxurious, advanced and iconic car in the history of the French manufacturer Famal. The GR (from French grande routière) was carefully designed with comfortable high speed cruising in mind - from the most aerodynamical body in class, through the hydropneumatic suspension and the smooth, potent drivetrain coupling a boxer 6 engine with a 4 speed automatic to the plush, high quality interior. It’s a perfect 70s machine for any travel.

2.7 OHV B6 with MFI (from Aquila)
134 hp/162 lb-ft
0-60 in 10 seconds
FWD of course, it’s a French car :stuck_out_tongue:
Juuust under 40k for this 27S trim


Yes, it was made before the update, hence the currently unavailable scene and minor details. No time for new pics :smile:

No time for a fancy ad from me.

1992 Mosport Hydra Scamp

What do you get when you cross a sportscar and a dune buggy? The Hydra Scamp. Powered by a 3.3L turbocharged I6 producing 320 hp, the Hydra Scamp will hit 100 km/h in 7.7s. The modified suspension with rear solid axle and massive increase in ride height, along with offroad tires and a manual locker, allow the car to really rough it where no other sportscar can.

ACA DLX Super Turbo

In the late 1970s, ACA began downsizing their full-size models. Starting in 1978 with the new ACA DLX. Previously a high end trim for the ACA RoadCruiser, the DLX offered the comfort and space of its predecessors while having a smaller overall footprint.
However, with the downsizing of chassis, also came with downsizing engines. The behemoth that was the ACA 440 V8, a staple of high end full-size ACA's, had been dropped in favour of the smaller and more economical 300.
Therefore, to ensure that ACA was not seen as a "sedate" brand, ACA engineers devised a plan to make the DLX "sporty". Since the 1960's, ACA had been dabbling with turbochargers. Though unable to release a turbocharged engine early on due to reliability issues, by the late 70s, turbocharger technology had progressed to a point where ACA engineers felt it was reliable enough to put into a production car. And the first car they would put a turbo in, was the DLX.
