Quotex' Design Challenge - Round 1 - "Back to basics" [ON HOLD]


what’s the car named? Commodore? Commidore? Commifore?



This. Was gonna do Commadore, but that seemed too similar to… something I remembered at the time. I typoed this ad to death. Seems like something someone who can’t design would do…

Really, whichever spelling you want is fine. I don’t remember if the badging on the car is correct or a “factory defect” either.

Edit: Turns out the wheelbase is too smol. I don’t have access to a PC for quite a while… so… I probably won’t be getting an entry in that’s legal after all.


Okay, last attempt with my only car that can fit this criteria without modding the game to hell and back. For funsies, it’s now got a two way Catalytic Converter, and i’m pretty sure still is one of the most economical cars engines here.


The new 1983 Hakumai Intruder.

(Forgot Wipers but will be fixed in the car file)


No changes were made to the 4th-generation Rigore Angeles since it began production in 1981. In 1983, it remained pretty much the same car it was as it rolled off the line 2 years prior.

More visuals on the European-exclusive base 200 ES model are located below. North American markets would get the 135 ES model, with the slightly larger (2.2 vs 2.0 l) engine.

Sunday Afternoon, the city of Teischelberg…

“Can you grab a cart dear? I forgot to lock the car, so I’ll be right back.”

Liane is out with her mother on a grocery run for tonight’s dinner at the local Maxis Super Store, her GMF Trend is out in the garage for its first annual MOT test, a system introduced earlier this year to make sure all older vehicles are still safe and roadworthy.

“Sure, I’ll go get one.”

Liane grabs a shopping trolley and starts walking towards the entrance of the store. It’s one of the largest stores in the region that sells anything ranging from food to camping equipment and other general goods.

As Liane gets near the Entrance she notices a familiar looking car…

The yellow sedan approaches Liane and rolls down its window. It’s her boss Lars.

He recently bought a YAZ 1500 Deluxe that the A&M staff can use for long-distance trips. It is a facelift of a model that has been in the run since the 60s. And from what Liane has read about it, the thing barely passes safety requirements to be imported into Gallia. But since they’re only just starting out with the Magazine, this is all the new car their budget could buy.

“Afternoon Liane, nice seeing you here. Doing a grocery run as well?”

Lars turns down the radio, it’s playing Mr. Flagio’s “Take a Chance”. He’s really into Modern Disco music, Liane enjoys it a fair bit as well, she actually wanted to grab the new Donna Summer album while she was here.

“Yep, I’m here with my mother to get Ingredients for dinner, and I think I might get some new Records.”

“What’s on the menu then?”

Hutspot, how about you?”

“I’m going to grab some fries with Devlin, I hear you two are getting close to a final selection for the D-segment comparison?”

“Yep, we should be done with our selection next week. Will you be lending us the YAZ?”

“Yeah, it drives like a charm actually, it’s not fast, but it’s reasonably comfortable and not too noisy once you get up to speed. Anyway, I’m probably getting a queue behind me, so I’d best be on my way to meet Devlin. I’ll see you around.”

“Ok, see ya Monday.”

The yellow sedan sputters off, leaving a small plume of smoke behind. Liane goes inside the store to continue her grocery run with her mother…

A Timer has been added to the main post so that you can keep track of the Deadline.

Thanks to everyone who has submitted an entry so far, due to the large amount of entrants and nature of the challenge (and me procrastinating :eyes:) it’s going to take me a while to get to everyone’s entry inspected.

I will be allow post-deadline resubmissions if I can’t get your entry inspected within the deadline, the deadline for doing so will be posted once Inspected all the cars.

Once all the able entrants have passed inspection, I’ll start Judging the designs and write my reviews. You can expect the finals to be out in 1-2 weeks after the deadline has passed. (I’ll be making detailed reviews, hence the delay in results). Before that I’ll make a few posts on the progress of Lianes and Devlins adventure to Fruinia. (AKA Prelims and Bins)

Introducing: The ЯAЗ (YAZ) 1500 DELUXE.

The ЯAЗ 1500 Deluxe, optional equipment shown, color: Цитрусовые желтый (Citrus Yellow) w/ Black Pinstriping.

The YAZ 1500 has been the Archanan go-to car for the commuter on a budget since 1967. Having recently undergone a facelift and several safety and powerplant upgrades. It has been cleared for Export to Fruinia and Gallia. The “Deluxe” trim level is meant specifically for Export markets, and Includes additional equipment such as a passenger door mirror, rear seatbelts and an entry-level ROTFUNKT™ stereo AM/FM radio. Optionally, you can further equip the 1500 with Häkka® Rallye-style foglights, aerodynamic front spoiler and a sunroof with low drag visor. The Deluxe starts at DCT 9,600 and can be yours today. Experience the durable and reliable form of transportation that has mobilized Archana for years.

That’s right, a prize car!

A YAZ 1500 Deluxe will be given to the winners in the Design and Engineering category. And you’ll be able to pick from 6 different colors.

Additionally, this car will be entering the challenge as a low-end Benchmark vehicle for the engineering category.


1983 SAV Gaviota 2.0 SX

Available in 2 door coupe, 4 door sedan, and 5 door liftback or estate.

This upper-mid trim SX comes with a 2.0 liter, electronic fuel injection overhead cam flat 4, front disc brakes, 15" alloy wheels, higher quality interior trimmings, and stylish, aerodynamic semi-hidden headlamps.



Pretty dang clean-looking.

I’m honestly glad that more models were allowed, I’m liking all this stylistic variety between competitors. At this point I’m just hoping I didn’t overdesign.


1983 RCM Kingston Hi-Way

(ad will follow eventually)



Guess who is back? Exactly! The Anhultz Dione XII-CX.

( When you put effort in making an ad but nobody likes it.)



With less than 25 hours left on the deadline timer, I would like to remind the people who’ve sent in a submission and have NOT passed the initial rule inspection, that they still have a chance to resubmit their entry before 00:00 am on the 21st.

The users in question are:

The reasons have been explained in a PM I sent out.

If you’ve already passed the first inspection, and still have your resubmission token, and would like to improve something, you can do so until the deadline passes.

If you have NOT received a PM from me yet, it’s because I have not gotten around to inspecting your vehicle yet. If your car gets inspected after the deadline passes and it fails, you will be given a time window for a resubmission. Up until all entries are inspected.

Once everything is inspected, I will commence the first round of judging (this will probably be Monday at the earliest. Because of the large amount of entries.)


Finally got around to making the ad for it.


What is the name of the font you used in the ad? It makes the ad look great
