Townsend Motors Press Release
27 January

We would like to apologize to our customers, both existing and potential. Due to new government fuel economy testing methods, we regrettably must inform the public that the Townsend Titus’s revised fuel economy figures are lower than originally expected. The new combined rating is over 33 MPG.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this new government method has caused.


Silly game updates. :stuck_out_tongue:

sorry no stylish this and that or photoshop here, I barely have time but if I’m going to be judging UE4 cars I better try my hand at making one right and this is perfect timing to reveal the-

Armada Fore Gen. IV GTi

where the hell are the shadows!?!?

Despite the protestations of a certain Annabel Herrington, granddaughter of the founder of Armada, and current head of the Driver Development arm of Armada Racing, The Fore is as fine a representation of the company’s philosophy but also expanding legacy, as their first truly successful production model that also embodies their quirky dedication to the go-fast bits at budget prices. Even in an expanding array of trims as is the wont of the hatch and its versatility, the mainstay of Armada has been the GTi variant, the one with all the punch without sacrificing much of the trim. It’s the one you can live with every day but by golly it goes like the blazers. Ever since the 2nd Generation, Armada have nailed the hot hatch down to a fine art, and even if they only have the production capacity to capture a smaller slice of the pie, their customers know exactly what they want and that’s exactly what they get.

For as long as the hot hatch remains relevant, which we presume will be a long time, the Fore GTi always has had and always will have the following: four proper seats, a manual transmission, front-wheel drive, limited slip diff and independent suspension. It boasts a lightweight construction with an unbeatable combination of speed and fuel economy and grippy but pliant handling. It is an Armada promise to deliver the quickest liveable hot hatch for the price, but of course, the proof is in the pudding.

The ride is firm, yes, but tuned for dynamism and maximum cornering grip. This kind of performance, especially the cornering of all speeds, will see it outdo even more powerful dedicated sports cars, all while not burning a hole in your pocket with service and fuel costs.

For the real driver at heart, given the price, it is difficult to see why you’d want anything else… if you can get your hands on one. As every Armada car hails from the same single factory, these fly out the door faster than they can be made, so stake your claim now and find out for yourself exactly what strange magic goes on in that shed in Norwich.

The CY series (CY.I) Maesima Prova was released in 2006 and manufactured in Namju, Anikatia, the Prova was powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine. Transmission options consisted of five-speed manual or four-speed automatic units. It was a small, front-wheel drive vehicle that marked a major turning point in Maesima’s history. It was the start of a new era, the first-ever Maesima designed jointly with Cavallara Motors in Europe. Maesima having just survived the Asian Financial Crisis and Collapse of Communism in Anikatia. Its long term foreign partners Komodo Motors sold its substantial share of the company sold during the height of the financial crisis ending a partnership from the 1980s. The original Prova was product of the shared knowledge, it was big success that helped Maesima through the harsh periods of austerity and financial crisis. But now in a new era and with new partnership. Komodo sold to the Spanish brand Cavallara Motors, which quickly got to work on new designs.

The fruits of this new partnership arrived in the form of an all-new CY series Prova based on a shared platform, with a shared all-new engine architecture. Within Maesima it was known as the C-platform. Although the new MC-LC4M20-engine family shared the same basic block and internal components the layout and tunes were completely different. The engine had a cast iron block, an cast cylinder head, double overhead camshafts (chain-driven), four valves per cylinder. This engine was the first to feature Maesima’s Active Valve and Lift Electronic Control (ActiVEC) Variable valve lift and Variable valve timing with ActiVEC Plus technology which was developed from Cavallera’s own Camtronic Automated Valve Active Lift (CAVAL) system. Depending on the configuration the engine had either the just ActiVEC or the ActiVEC Plus. The 2006 Prova arrived with four engines based on this platform a naturally aspirated 1.5L ActiVEC, a naturally aspirated 1.8L with ActiVEC Plus a naturally aspirated 2.0L with ActiVEC Plus and a turbocharged 2.0L with ActiVEC Plus. All engines retained a multi-port fuel injection as did the Cavallara variants.

The basic C-platform shared the same 2.45m wheelbase and same MacPherson struts in front suspension, the Maesima retained a revised and returned version of the Torsion Beam setup of the original Prova. While the Cavallara variants used their own Semi Trailing Arm rear suspension design. The platform used AHS steel and steel panels for an extremely rigid and safe chassis compared to many of its competitors. While this gave the model a solid feel and greater protection, it also meant the design was generally heavier than its rivals. The highlight of the range was the return of the acclaimed ST-R trim. While a two door coupe was no longer offered. Moving with the times the ST-R moved towards a four door hatchback design. bringing new levels of sophistication and quality to the ST-R badge.



In 2009 the CY series II (CY.II ) Prova lineup was refreshed with all models getting a revised headlights and front fascia while taillights and rear were also updated, inside changes were to increase refinement and adding features. All engines were retained and retuned and refined while a new five-speed automatic transmission replaced the old four-speed and the five speed manual was further refined. The Prova continued to offer sporty styling, class-leading value with a plethora of standard features and safety equipment.

Available as a four-door sedan or five-door hatchback in five standard trim levels - Xz entry level 1.5L manual with optional automatic , mid level Tz 1.8L manual with optional automatic. Then the sport-tuned ST with a 2.0L manual with optional automatic. Finally the top grade premium trim ST-Z offering standard automatic and 2.0L engine with optional manual plus a comprehensive list of standard and available safety features that make it stand out from the crowd in a hotly competitive compact-car market. Finally the flagship ST-R performance model offered only as a four door hatchback. This striking design stands apart with a turbocharged 2.0L and five-speed manual and viscous LSD.

Offering 0-100 in just 6.5 seconds, while returning an average combined cycle of 7.7L per 100 km. Its the perfect balance of sporty fun and family practicality. The ST-R features sport-tuned, suspension and 17-inch alloy wheels and tires for better steering response and handling. Other standard features include cruise control, sporty design touches such as a rear spoiler, unique front fascia with fog lights, faux-leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob with perforated faux-leather, sport fabric on the seats and door panels and metal-finish trim throughout the interior, including metal pedals.



The Prova follow Maesima’s brand philosophy of offering great safety equipment, with standard airbags, four-wheel disc brakes are standard on all models, and four-sensor, four-channel anti-lock brakes with electronic stability control. Additional safety features include: front seatbelt pre-tensioners and force limiters, three-point seatbelts for all five seating positions, Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) and child safety door latches.

Incorporating a Turbocharged ActiVEC Plus and multi-port fuel injection, the ST-R Prova are powered by a 2.0-liter DOHC engine that produces 151 kW (202hp) horsepower and 240 Nm (177 ft lb) of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard, while an improved electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission is available as an option. The new transmission is lighter in weight, more durable and provides improved operation. The Prova ST-R’s suspension layout uses MacPherson struts in front and a Torsion Beam design in the rear, and was carefully tuned to achieve the optimum balance between a comfortable ride and responsive handling. Front and rear stabiliser bars are standard on all models and handling is aided by a precise rack-and-pinion steering system equipped with engine-speed-sensitive power assist.

A sport-tuned suspension provides both the ST-R with an athletic stance, while a strut tower bar provides additional torsional rigidity for better handling and quicker turn-in. Like all of Maesima’s vehicles, each model features an impressive list of standard features inside and out, including: auto-off headlights, AM/FM/CD audio system with four speakers, remote keyless entry, height adjustable steering column, tachometer, cruise control, six-way adjustable driver’s seat, digital clock, carpeted floor mats, in-cabin air filter, tinted glass, rear window defroster and dual map lights with sunglasses holder.

Like all Maesima models, the Prova ST-R is covered by a comprehensive warranty program, which offers unprecedented consumer protection. Included in the package are a 8-year or 100,000-mile limited power train warranty; a four-year or 60,000-mile limited basic warranty; and a four-year or 100,000-mile anti-perforation warranty. A four-year/unlimited mileage roadside assistance plan is also part of the comprehensive coverage program.

The first generation Cavallera Kunai joins the fray. Released in 2006 on the C platform co-developed with Maesima, and manufactured on production lines alongside the Prova in Anikatia, and on Cavallera’s own lines in Spain and elsewhere in Europe, the Kunai comes with a 2 litre inline four petrol engine, with variants all the way down to 1.5L. Either a 5-speed manual or automatic can be paired with any engine. Sitting on a 2.5m wheelbase, this top C trim differs from the Prova ST-R by putting power down through all wheels and sitting on a 3 door construction. The debut of this platform was a new page for the company, putting the new modular engine architecture to use, and allowing the company to gain new R&D capability, design influence and access to new markets - but it would also be the first foray into the world of hatchbacks after almost a decade.

Around the end of the 90s, Anikatia had slumped into the Financial Crisis. Companies were desperate for money but Komodo Motors was facing it’s own issues and backed out of their earlier partnership with Maesima. This offered a good opportunity for a smaller company like Cavallera to take a bold risk with it’s survival at stake for mutual success that would be a welcome boost to both brands. The first product to arise out of this joint effort was the new C platform, upon which the Kunai and Prova would be based. This platform would be a front wheel drive focused, monocoque AHS chassis with MacPherson front suspension and a choice between torsion or semi-trailing arm setup in the rear. Sitting at the front, transversely, is the 4M20, a 2.0L four-cylinder engine family based off the modular engine architecture from 2001, retaining older cast iron block technology and bottom end components, but forging ahead with a four valve per cylinder dual overhead cam design and employing the CAVAL system (variable valve timing and variable valve lift). This sporty C trim (C referring to Chiroptera, the technical name for a bat, the symbol of good luck and also the logo of the sports division of Cavallera) has the full size 2 litre inline 4 with CAVAL 1, meaning VVL together with VVT on the exhaust cams only, and a turbocharged and intercooler engine outputting 242 horsepower using multipoint fuel injection through individual throttle bodies for enhanced response and performance.

The Kunai was refreshed in 2009 at the same time as the Prova (the submitted variant being a facelifted Kunai C) featuring a more aggressive aero package, redesigned lights and a slightly retuned engine. While this spec is a 3 door, the 5 door is also available albeit in lower, civilian trims. Options for the Kunai C included a sports package for $1500 which upped power to 250hp, upgraded to bucket seats and added viscous limited slip differentials (not included in the submitted example) or the choice of 5 full sized seats at additional weight and cost. The vibrant colours of the Senyera play out across the car, especially in the red example submitted, however, all trims feature interior cues referring back to this theme. Other colour choices available are a dark blue, yellow, white, black and grey. Performance is sprightly and on par with other real-world performance hatchbacks, having a 0-100 time of 6.3 seconds, hitting a top speed of 233kph and pulling over 1g cornering force - all while returning 7.5L/100km. At the four corners are 210/50R17 tyres of a slightly harder compound than the Prova on account of the all-wheel drive. 100 to 0 braking takes around 33 metres, being slowed down by ventilated disks on all wheels.

All in all, the Cavallera Kunai C is an exotic Spanish Sangria - a potent, enticing blend of cutting-edge looks, driving pleasure and top-notch performance that can also star on the relaxing side for a meal of real-world livability. A versatile companion that can make memories and can make you smile. For only 14 grand (@0%), you can untame your heart.
