The question is, did the TDF explode like in their 1982 review? :wink:

1996 Raver


Following success of the Land Climber and Model X, Katsuro saw the need for more road friendly SUVs. The market for SUVs was opening quite rapidly, and Kasturo saw the opportunity. Katsuro’s current lineup was ok, but there was space for more road friendly, practical family vehicles. The Raver was designed to flll that gap, as well as the company’s intention to deliver more compact vehicles to the Sport Utility segment.

MSRP: 24K

Katsuro entered 1996 unveiling an all new line of premium commuter cars from different classes, as well the unleashing of an all new 200hp light weight sports car called the Adara R. The Adara was the first car from the katsuro lineup to feature an all new variable valve system known as Tech-V, which allowed the car to have dual personalities. Elements of this new valve system was also used in these new models but to a lesser degree, and the investment in racing and KRD was starting to show it’s presence in the Katsuro lineup.

Adara R to be featured in 2003’s 2 Fast 2 Curious.
The feature car is rumoured to have been street tuned to 300hp with the addition of a turbo charger, and revvving all the way to 9000 rpm. The car was spotted at a gas station in the desert while suspected to be undergoing testing.

2007 Saw Katsuro Redesigning the King, Vatina and Adara. A new Crossover was also unveiled known as the CX-4.

The King was now fitted with a smaller V10 instead of a V12 like it’s predecessor, but now with 2 turbos. The results were profound after years of research and development of the induction system led to minimal turbo lag, huge amounts of torque and hp gains, and the company almost made it as smooth as the V12 it replaces.

The Adara R also received a total rework of it’s suspension, a revised engine now producing over 200 hp from it’s naturally aspirated inline 4, as well as a new facelift.

The Vatina was also overhauled to cater to the more premium compact sport segment, and was powerful enough to take on supercars.

The CX-4 was basically a jacked up Hatchback for the lower-middle income buyers who wanted a safe and practical family utility vehicle with some amount of off-road capability.
