2020 8th Generation Tanaka Aventus Ready for Production
Perfect for Japanese VIPs...
Because there was once a post from Killrob that the car using this body that was built in older versions of the game are cocked up, I might as well redesign this to fit more in line with my design language in this version of the game…
From left to right: Tanaka Aventus 5.0 G, 5.0 L and 5.0 L Executive. From now on, our newly revealed cars will be displayed at the main entrance/lobby of Tanaka’s design studio.
The Tanaka Aventus has always been our full-size luxury sedan since its debut in 1975. This has always been one of the go to luxury sedans for Japanese and probably whole of Asia. The Aventus entered the US market in the mid-80s (During its 4th generation, 1985-1995) and the European market (During its 5th generation, 1995-2005). Since then, this is now its 8th generation of the Aventus. Its 1st design was revealed at the 2019 North American Auto Show. But then the designers kept tweaking the design until its final design, which is down below.
Following Tanaka’s rebirth of the brand to be more upscale and more exciting, Tanaka made the Aventus more sporty, but also more elegant than its original design. The grille now follows the new design language, which has 6 sides. This make the grille more pronounced. The LED lights are tweaked to fit the design language as well as being more effective. The side are also tweaked so that it has more details and also fit the design language. Like the recently revealed Aventis, the roof and part of its trunk is black to make it more cotemporary from its glaring contrast with bright colours. Like the X-Series, it also have black trimming cutting through the C-Pillar. The taillights are unique to the Aventus. The rear bottom fascia is also similar to the Aventis. The wheels we have selected to be put on the Aventus blends in well with the whole design of the car. The higher trim level you go, the more chrome trimming you get.
Step inside the new Aventus and you can see almost everything covered in very high-quality leather sourced from Italy. The rest are covered in your desired choice of trimming (be it wood, artworks behind glass, engraved signatures, etc) You can really see the quality of the leather as there are virtually no blemishes in there. In fact, the entire seats were made in the Tanaka luxury upholstery division in Italy. The seats are 30-way adjustable, both for the front and back. As expected, the seats are heated and ventilated, and also have massaging functions. Our iPad Pro-sized infotainment system is the most luxurious and most technologically advanced ever from Tanaka. They are very sensitive to the touch (sensitivity of touch adjusted by phone companies) to the level of smartphones. Our gauge cluster is also fully digital and fully configured. In the centre like always, a clock is in there. Not just any clock, but But the real party is in the back seats. With its 3.1m wheelbase, legroom is virtually endless. There is also a leg holder in case of you want to sleep in your Aventus in long journeys. For the 5.0 G and 5.0 L, there are 3 rear seats (the centre can be pulled down to reveal a tablet to control things you need). For the 5.0 L Executive, there are 2 rear seats only (the 2 seats are divided by a panel continuing from the front to back. Not only does it has the tablets, but also some storage space. But most importantly, a fridge at the back, or what we call the “Cool Room”. The bottles of champagne or wine can be put there together with 2 wine glasses or whiskey glasses (comes with an adapter to secure the glasses in place). If not, there is also an adaptor to secure either whiskey bottles, beer can or bottle and even a water bottle). And no, they are not optional, they are standard on the 5.0 L Executive unlike other manufacturers. Luxury obvioulsy means bussiness here.
The bare chassis of the Tanaka Aventus 5.0 L Executive with all the suspension and drivetrain components…
The chassis is made of glued aluminium (will share the same chassis as the upcoming Crezta) and the whole body is made of aluminium to save weight. Its aerodynamic and elegant hatchback design makes the Aventus achieve a total drag coefficient of only 0.232 cd. Its wheelbase was extended to 3.1m. The engine is the F50DI-C1 EarthBoost unit (a 5.0 litre twin-turbocharged Direct-Injected DOHC V8) producing 414HP and 641lb-ft of torque to pull all that weight effortlessly. This 9-speed Torque-Converter Automatic is Tanaka’s most advanced yet. Of course, AWD is standard like usual. And of course, all safety feautures including autopilot that exists right now is standard on the Aventus.
