Now this is an interesting company! Do you have any pictures of the rears of the cars?
Maesima is a threat to Saminda , do Maesima have luxury brands too ? it will be great to have a similiar competitors making similiar cars.
As long as we don’t have any recalls! But I’m sure Maesima would like to expand into the luxury market (they did attempt with the poorly timed and not quite there NL-992) But DHB brand is the only real luxury offering from Anikatia. Maesima is the only brand that’s really independent. While DHB and AAU both owned by DN Group (formerly Daesungkhu & Namkoong Group) and Huadai Group owns Huadai and Daisuma.
@Speedemon Don’t worry this is a just show of the current lineup each will get it’s own post with story, detailed specs if I can just figure out an easy and nice looking way to present it!
Now a question would people prefer things to go in chronological order from earliest model to the current lineup or just go from the current line up with a retro throwback posts every now and then?
Would like to see Maesim go from current line-up , as we are living in the 21st century irl , just want to have the feel that Automation brand existed irl
but it’s totally up to you !
Okay, let’s start from the bottom of the current lineup with the Maesima Levitas!

Popular Automobile --SUV vs MPV vs Wagon, Auxuras, Maesima & Monolith, which is better?--
How does everyone make such sharp looking headlights?
Levitas looks very good! I didn’t know it’s possible to make such good sporty minivan
this. Unless it is for an extreme situation where you absolutely need to cut off power at redline due to durability or fuel economy (rare) you should always have some rpms over peak. It will help the overall engine score, and will help other scores like sport.
My general rule of thumb is to start by increasing the redline until just before the power index drops off. This means 1940-1950s engines have around 200-300 rpm past peak hp, 1950-1980s or so has at least 400rpm past peak, and 1980s to current day have about 500 (sometimes more if its a flat hp curve) beyond peak hp.
The 2.5L is too overkill , some kind of racing engine
2.0L fits the bill
This is the best company forum yet, with accompanying backstory to the manufacturer’s country of origin (and it was one you made yourself!). Most of your cars also remind me of the Mazda range (2, 3, 6, CX-5, CX-9). It’s a shame that there are no new small minivan or FR sports coupe bodies after 1995, otherwise there would be no safety or desirability penalties.
Waiting for a supercar reveal
Not likely, but the whole range is compelling to most buyers. I first knew about this brand from CSR14; I did not expect the version of the Avellca to do so well in that round (a result of its low running costs), even though its lack of prestige ultimately held it back in a contest full of legitimate premium cars. However, the Prova ST-R should have been given forged internals, otherwise @strop wouldn’t have rejected it out of hand in CSR17. Why did you choose not to do so? And while you’re at it, you should also create an accompanying thread in the engine sharing forum showing all the engines your company has used over the decades.
One more thing: Crimson Sprint Metallic is very similar to Soul Red, which Mazda offers throughout its range, and it complements each car’s lines very well.
Finally! You have a company thread.
Your backstory is amazing, I’m astounded at the level of detail. Also, I love your company’s branding. You really give it such a unique and recognisable style.
I’m sure that is just a typo If you’ll check the info again.
@findRED19 Thanks for the tip I’ll keep that in mind for future designs. I think I got mixed up with the taco redline with the actual rev limit.
@Yamahafazer600 It won’t be production car if that’s what you’re hoping for but there could be room for Racing or Concept designs along those lines.
@abg7 Why? Well at the time it seemed like a cost effective method as that round had a focus on a limited number of production units although now I have a better understanding of how to setup my engines. Every failure is a step towards success and our products will be all the better as a result.
Don’t be like Saminda for not making any halo car …
“We aren’t Saminda.” CEO of Maesima Australia says as High-Performance MRZ-3 Variant teased.
Maesima has no plans to abandon enthusiasts, David Gruner, the managing director of Maesima Australia revealed. During the announcement of the latest high-performance variant of the popular rear wheel drive MRZ-3 sports car. Stating “We aren’t Saminda. We won’t forget about performance. While we must continue to improve fuel efficiency. We don’t believe that has to come at the cost of fun and performance.”
While the full details have yet to be released on the MRZ-3 range. We can reveal some stats on the STX-R below. A full unveiling is expected within 48 hours.
0-100 km: Under Five Seconds
Top Speed: Over 250 km/h
Power: Over 200 kW
Torque: Over 200 Nm
Looks tempting. Pity the body it uses is two decades old (hence the reason why the Harris CMC, using the same body and serving as my entry for round 1 of @CamKerman’s Realism Challenge, was introduced in 1998 but discontinued in 2004), leading to a massive desirability and safety penalty. However, it does not have the problem that the Toyota 86/Subaru BRZ have: insufficient torque. Moreover, unlike those two, I hope it has proper high-performance tires as standard. Finally, I am expecting it to have the intensity and precision that’s been missing from the Mazda MX-5 ND (at least according to some, including a few writers at British enthusiast publication evo,) but at any rate it will be affordable.
It’s really not that bad you know, by 2016 most bodies used would be a decade old.
And how the hell is the MX-5 ND not a precise car? It’s lauded to be greatest Miata generation.
On topic, you’ve some how made a corporate grill work. Kudos. Promising vehicle.
