This was a fine round; I echo the sentiments about how much effort went in, especially with the flavour thrown in when English is not your first language. Good stuff!
I’m always happy when in a round like this my entry is crowned best performance. You’re entirely right that in reality my Legatus was intended for a person with a rather larger budget… Phongbhan would be eating instant noodle for eternity
Rather I am happiest knowing I’ve finally made a suitable car to debut Matteo Miglia. To footnote, the i5 in this version is not canon, and at this point neither will the V6 be! Matteo, having seen the completed design for his first car and falling in love with it, was aghast at the limitations of the engine bay and literally could not afford to engineer a way to make a welded V6 work in it. So instead after some negotiations Znopresk grudgingly agreed to let him use the same 2L i4 12v block as used in the Zest! It delayed the release of the car by a year to 1983, but the result was a turbo tuned i4 engine pushing out 215hp with a much earlier spool (ultimately the actual costs of the car turned out to be the same, too).
I’ll upload that car onto the repository when I get a chance. It’s tuned for Beam, not Automation, as, uh, min-maxing the suspension to get the minimum comfort actually caused the front overhang to bounce off the road under heavy breaking
