I can just hear those classic American On-Line sounds going on in my head… As expected from a professional ad maker, his work is good at promoting a car and sending you back in time!
As for my entry, it’s still receiving a few touch-ups as we speak. The ad itself will come soon, tomorrow at earliest, but for now here’s a thing not often seen in these threads. A visual teaser;
Dun-dun-duunnnnn! A new challenger('s) name has appeared! And yes, it would only make sense for it to be a Hugi. I mean there’s no red accenting anywhere, CSM would be ashamed to release such a car…

Oh cool! I think I’m gonna enter this. Expect my entry later today
I like the late 90’s - early 2000 design, but I do find it slightly underwhelming for something with a name as massive as Betelgeuse. (Note: I’m not calling the design as such underwhelming).

The Presto is refreshed for 2001 with new suspension, transmission and engine refinements. Fuel economy in excess of 26 mpg, sports-car-like handling, and room for two people, their luggage and their dog.
Yours for only $21,500.

did it ever occur to you that green text on a green car was a terrible idea?
I felt the some portions of the text had to match the green in the car… But yes, placing green text on top of the green car wasn’t the finest placement idea I’ve had. But what’s done is done, sadly…
Edit: Disregard that last sentence. Turns out there was a problem with one of the Griffonne’s stats, which has been fixed. Both the ad and the press photos will be updated accordingly in the original post to reflect the changes.
Well it’s a big name for sure, but in the lore I’m developing for FABEL, the Betelgeuse is the largest, most expensive and most luxurious car they make, so it fits!
That certaintly makes sense! the car itself doesn’t really look like calling up the image of an exceptionally large, expensive, luxurious car. It looks nice, but more like a sports coupe, than an exceptional luxurious car.
how are you achieving pushrod suspension in a midship car without blowing the engineering limit of 40 units?
