Lusocosta (LC) motors


Created in 2015, by T.F.R.Costa in Odivelas, with the dream of build a completed designed and build Portuguese car brand to fulfilled all segments in E.U. car markets


LusoCosta Avar/Magiar
is a semi-premium 6 seater, column sifted mid-sized family car ( D-segment) with engines spanning from v6 1600cc to v8 3400cc petrol

Avar 1.6 v6 (150hp)
only add 1 thing, this is a beast of a car, because the safety systems the car weights more than 1500kgs
all engines are N/A
we are studying in future diesel engines ( possibly a 2000cc I5 supercharged diesel or 1800cc I5 )


@Lusobyzantine why 1.6 V6 ?why dont use a straight 4 or other inline engine ? :wink:


Lancer from 1999 had 1.6 V6 140Hp and this was normal thing.
BTW how much that car needs fuel for 100km?


@Lorenztypeok but its strange for me .What is the year of the car ?




in this moment 9.2 l/100


V6 & V8
2018 European car

Choose two.
Also, how much power does the 3.4 V8 have?

@Lorenztype No, it wasn’t normal, the norm is something common, and this was extremely uncommon. Except this and Mazda MX-3 I know no other sub-2.0 sixes after the WW2. And even those 2-litre ones were either a) BMW, and they were all about I6s, b) Italian, and therefore forced by Italian heavy taxes on anything above 2.0.


325 hp


v8 version bodywork photos


What’s the point then of making an exclusive engine (as a V8 in this segment surely is one) with the power of a modern turbo four?


It is a whim of mine


Your designs aren’t up to date or modern.


That we agree, i need improve the designs🤔
