[Kee museum] Zavir Legacy thread - FUTURESIGHT: A glimpse of the future


#5

Yes. Two photographs of the same car in the same perspective, but in different colours.


#7

Yeah, it’s cool. I plan second company (to show it chronologically, quite spinoff). Thanks for tips :smiley:


#10

I?m happy with word drescriptions. Maybe you can just post the Design tab :slight_smile:


#11

i personallly like seeing the actual stats of the car for comparisons sake.


#14

##Futuresight
Different series of posts, in which I’ll be showing just a snap of future cars - just one trim, with no backstory and almost no stats. Something for you to wonder :stuck_out_tongue: And more seriously, I start it because after recent loss of Zavir cars and engines I’m slightly averse to “current” (40s/50s) Zavir cars, but still want to publish sth here without breaking the chronology completely. Aaand I had to create this car to check how that engine would perform in its intended application.

So, this time in Futuresight:

##Squalo IV 3.6 tcv




It’s the fourth generation of Zavir top limousine, the first Zavir car that used turbo for economy and the last that used the long-lived S42E engine. This 5-seat, 5.2-metre limousine is powered exactly by S42E-6MZA - that’s 3.6-litre turbocharged V6 with Cambiovalvole (thus the designation 3.6 tcv - Turbo CambioValvole), which allows it to go 250km/h (electronically limited, but not by much) and get to 100km/h in about 9s. All of this while consuming ~10l/100km, which is not bad for a 2-tonne car.

The engine itself is in Zavir Motori thread, so you can download it and play with it.


PS I wonder if someone here knows (without googling!) from what other game the term “Futuresight” is :wink:

Roulette Runner [FINAL RESULTS]

2016

The latest and most advanced generation of Zavir’s “finest compact in the world”.

The new Luna is an exceptionally innovative car - the first Zavir compact to be made fully of aluminium, the first Zavir to have laser headlights as standard equipment and the first Zavir to be offered solely with our Seletronica™ III double-clutch transmission. Also the reActive™ suspension is highly modernised compared to the previous Luna, while still being active double wishbone / multilink setup. As its predecessors the new Luna is offered with RWD or 4Forza™ AWD in four different bodies, three trim levels and with various I4 and V6 engines.

Style

The sixth generation Luna is available as usual in 5 door CC, 4 door Berlina and 3 door Coupe body styles, but in this generation the soft-top Spider makes a comeback into the lineup. The CC and the Berlina both offer 5 seat, while the Coupe and the Spider are equipped with 4 individual seats, lightened exterior plastic trim and frameless doors. The CC and the Coupe are both available for the base price of 25 600 €*, the Berlina requires 500 € extra* and for the Spider that’s 1 000 € extra*.

* taxes not included

Power

The engines remain largely unchanged from the predecessor, still providing excellent balance of performance, refinement and efficiency. Two i-ACD™ turbodiesels and three idea™ gasoline units - standard I4 and Zavir’s signature, naturally aspirated and high revving V6s, with their mightier counterparts powering the top of the range Sportivo and Z Sportivo variants.

1 - electronically limited // 2 - price including 2Forza™ differential, standard with the 2.7 engine // 3 - engines available only in their respective trims, see below for pricing

Soul

Sportivo - classic sports variant of every Zavir car since 90s. Available in every body variant with a 2.4 ics™ V6 engine transfering its power to the rear wheels through a viscous differential. Widened wheel arches house grippier sports tyres on 20" alloy rims. Car’s lightweight body features subtle changes for increased downforce and reduced drag, employing active aerodynamic components and a functional rear diffuser.

Z Sportivo - pure-bred sports car in the form of a compact. Available only in Coupe body style with a 3.0 ics™ V6 engine and drivetrain resembling that of the Sportivo, yet with a dedicated, blazing fast variation of the Seletronica™ gearbox and a geared LSD with an optional electronic one for maximum control and immense acceleration. Yet the modifications go further, with a downforce generating undertray ending with an advanced, race car derived rear diffuser. Additionally the car features a special, lightweight interior which helps keeping the weight as low as the Sportivo variant.

Touring 2000 - race car developed for under 2000 cc classes, based on the road going Z Sportivo variant. It undergone a strict weight reduction with not only a stripped interior but even a simplified and lightened 6 speed gearbox. This made it the lightest Luna by a big margin, weighing just 1100 kg. It uses a heavily modified naturally aspirated I4 of 1960 cc capacity. It raced in ATCC for Zavir’s factory team Z Motorsport with Andre Vaillncourt as the driver, where it got the 6th place.

Saminda took around 2 years to develop the C2000R , hopefully it will not disappoint us


#17

That baby NA? 4.4 0-60 off a RWD is no joke.


#19

Well there’s no denying that that is a fantastic looking car.


#21

Holy shit is it pretty. Your design work is seriously underappreciated.


#22

That is pretty sick , please send me a Luna Belina Lusso for comparision


#24

Loving your work! (When do you ever make bad stuff anyway?) I’m almost tempted to build a hot hatch myself but… I need to restrain myself or else I’ll be failing school :laughing:

#Zavir explained
…meaning some descriptions, explanations and some lore stuff not belonging into the history part :slight_smile: This post will be gradually updated as the Zavir brand and its lore develop. It’s sort of FAQ, although nobody asked me them :stuck_out_tongue:

###What is Zavir about?
Zavir’s focus and actual activities varied throughout history, but it was always about quality, style, innovation, performance and comfort. These 5 things define what every Zavir car is - at least that is the target. The effects are… varied, to say the least :stuck_out_tongue: Often intentionally, as in case of the “WTF generation”.

Zavir is not about stat maxing, record breaking or offering the best price. It’s about creating a somewhat believable story, slightly altered by a bit of normal Automation craziness. Cars ranging from completely realistic to just an inch or two over the top.


###What Zavir produces, generally speaking?
Generally speaking, nearly everything you can pour fuel in. Premium cars under the Zavir brand are just a part of it - there are also engines available for other manufacturers (a lot of them even unavailable in Zavir cars - diesels for example), utility and offroad cars under the joint-venture Zeta brand, jet engines, marine engines, motorcycles, tanks, locomotives…

Zavir Group is a huge global corporation producing all mentioned above. But what you, fellow forum user, should know if you are interested in Zavir is that cars are produced by Zavir Automobili (premium and sports cars, this thread, 100% owned by Zavir Group) and Zeta (utility and offroad, to be created after UE update, 50% owned by Zavir Automobili) and engines (which you can freely use) are produced by Zavir Motori (here, 100% owned by Zavir Group).


###What all these names you use mean?
There a lot of names that I use for various body styles, trims technnologies and so on. Some of them don’t change and are used in Zavir since, more or less, ever:

  • Volante - always meaning a coupe of some sorts, 2-3 door one. If it’s added to another model name then it’s considered to be a semi-separate model, usually with a different engine lineup and possibly other options and parameters.
  • Turismo - an estate, usual 5 door vechicle to move more of your stuff around
  • Spider - a cabriolet, convertible, or whatever you wish to name it
  • Ultima - as it suggest, an ultimate variant of a car, usually a sports one, usually with a V12
  • Hydraspeed - hydraulic automatic transmission, generation ranging from I to VII - the 1st has 2 speeds, 7th has 9, there was no 6 speed generation

There are also some names introduced later, or used just for some time:

  • Berlina - a sedan, 4 door limousine
  • Coupe - a tricky one, because it might mean a 2 door coupe as well as a 3 door hatchback. But unlike the Volante in terms other than the body style it is exactly the same as the base model.
  • Z - yes, just a letter - but it’s as meaningful as BMW’s “M”, and means more or less the same - speeeed (or just a sporty look :stuck_out_tongue:)
  • Fastback - not a fastback, but a sporty liftback 5 door coupe (just corporate logic, scroll along)
  • Seletronica - sequential gearbox, first generation being a 6 speed single clutch, second a 6 speed dual clutch, third a 7 speed dual clutch
  • 2Forza - limited slip differential, just that - name used only if it’s optional
  • 4Forza - Zavir’s AWD system, usually with limited slip differentials
  • Hydraglide - hydropneumatic suspension
  • Airide - air suspension in two generations - the 1st has passive dampers, the 2nd has adaptive ones

###Things typical for Zavir
Zavir, despite its love for new technology, in some areas is a rather conservative brand. For example - in every single Zavir since about 1950 you’ll find a grille with a horizontal bar - sometimes just decorating it, sometimes fully splitting, but it’s always there. In older cars front indicators are often on the inside end of the headlights.

Typical Zavir car has a V6 engine, while typical high-end Zavir has a V12 engine - there are of course I4s and V8s available, but they are not as important and omnipresent in the lineup as V6s and V12s. V12s are available in Zavirs constantly since 1949, with two different families being usually available in the same time, and two lines of V6 families are available since the early 60s, supplanting an I6 and a V8. Typical Zavir car’s engine is relatively high revving and naturally aspirated (although, of course, there are exceptions) and is gasoline powered, despite a lot of diesels being available in Zavir Motori lineup.

Also the vast majority of Zavirs are RWD, with the only FWD model being the smallest Cittadino. Zavir cars are often made of lightweight materials - good example being the latest Squalo, made of aluminium and carbon fiber despite not being a sports car, but rather a big limousine.


###Zavir in the Unreal version
The brand will be normally continued with a revision of some things going on by the way - for example some lore or lineup details, engines, exact car designs and so on, but the overall character, naming, style, history will stay.

#Futuresight
Yup, Futuresight is back! This time inspired by @DeusExMackia’s Erin Scarlet, with a car that I thought would be good competition for it :slight_smile: So, this is it, a car with a factory “bad look”:

##Zavir Nova Volante II Sportivo

[color=#777777](yay, a central exhaust!)[/color]

It’s the sixth generation of Zavir sports cars, being one of the longest and most important model lines for the company. As usual, it’s heavily based on the mid-class offering, the Supernova II. The car you see here is in the top of the line performance trim, the Sportivo. This means aerodynamic additions, 17" rims with sports tyres, better brakes, sportier, yet still comfortable air suspension and, obviously, the highlight of this whole piece of engineering art - a 3.6 litre, naturally aspirated V6 (good old S42E family) providing its 333hp to the rear wheels through a 5 speed manual. Effect?

  • 257 km/h top speed
  • 5.5s 0-100 time
  • 2:20.5 ATT time
  • 51 drivability, 43 sportiness, 30 comfort

In short, a driver’s speed machine for $25 900 :slight_smile:

Edit: Ah, important info I forgot to add - it was produced and offered in 1985 - 1990.


Zavir. Il vantaggio della tecnologia.


Erin and ErinSport - Historical Thread ['62 Erin Ghaleda]
#27

I take the Sportivo is quite a bit heavier than the Scarlet? Especially with that air suspension, unsual choice but it would make it very comfortable indeed. There’s a real 190E vibe here too, and I approve :wink:


#28

It weighs somewhere around 1350 kg, but it has a premium interior, a radio and an advanced safety equipment.


#29

That would be it, much more equipment than the Scarlet then

#miniFuturesight (double)
Why “mini”? Well, it’s too little text* even for a normal “Futuresight”, but I thought that it’s worth reposting here. And why double? Because it features two cars to compensate for the lack of content - Cittadino III Sportivo and Aera Turbo, both being my CSR entries.

######*(from me - so too little of my own effort put in this)
EDIT: not so “mini” now, with Aera GTR :slight_smile:

##Zavir Cittadino III Sportivo
As entered for CSR29.

Sporty car? Of course that Zavir is coming to the party, especially since the new Cittadino just got released in 1996 (luck :grin:). So, here it is, Cittadino III Sportivo, (literally) a ton of naturally aspirated fun!

Few things about this little rocket:

  • 1.7 I4 with over 170hp
  • under 7s from 0 to 100
  • Z-line yellow colour unavailable in standard Zavirs
  • based on the smallest Zavir, being also the only Zavir with FWD
  • 15 700 $ and it’s yours :slight_smile:

And in addition, it’s review by @HighOctaneLove:


At lucky no. 7 on our list is the Zavir Cittadino Sportivo, which probably hails from the same part of the world as the Brivio, the Sportivo is a badass hot hatch which manages to overpower the ultralights without resorting to stripping everything out of the car. This is achieved by using a 130Kw, 1.7L 4 cylinder, to power the beast; which is achieved on 95RON fuel. The sportivo does kinda cheat by installing a crappy stereo but the interior is nice and comfy, rather than bare-bones.

Looks classy, although less exotic than the Brivio, but a bit conservative for our tastes. A new Sportivo will set you back $15,600, which is a good deal on the face of it, but resale might bite due to a lack of dealers around the country.

Verdict: Nice Euro with a real spring in it’s step, worth every penny!

The car was originally posted here and the review is taken from here.


##Zavir Aera Turbo
In 1987 spec (Aera I was produced in 1984-1990) with Airide™ II.

And the magnificent image and review, both by @Rk38:

The car was originally posted here and you can read the reviews here (first part, Aera is in the second) - which I highly recommend, if you somehow didn’t already :slight_smile:

Oh wait! That’s not all, I have a “little” addition from 1985 :grin:

#Zavir Aera GTR


This little monster is based on Zavir’s new light sports car model, the 1984 Aera. This exact build is roughly the same machine that will compete in the magnificent Group B from this season, replacing the aging Z Volante R2. It is powered by Zavir’s brand new small V6, the S27E in a turbocharged form which delivers it’s tremendous power to all wheels - an innovation introduced to improve performance in the highly demanding Group B rallying.

Some stats:

  • over 550hp
  • under 1100kg
  • under 3.5s to 100km/h

:smiling_imp:

#32

Just want to reaffirm how much like the Aera, especially that rear light design. It’s superb.

One question though; both the Aera and the Scarlet competed in CSR37, but you didn’t suggest it as a rival to the Scarlet Mk 1, instead putting the Nova Volante II down. Any reason? :smiley:
