Sorry, I can’t come up with any Australian names…
I like how the new fascias are looking! However, I think these headlights are way too wide. Appart from that, you’re on the right track
The most popular TSR model in the 90s…
Just when you thought that the Ultra was the most popular, it isn’t. There was this coupe called the Mont Blanc. Many enthusiast said that this is how the Kansai should be. And for those who said that, it might be true. Switching to a transverse layout was not a good idea at the first place. The weight distribution is mostly in the front and who doesn’t like that RWD fun. Designed before the Ultra, the Mont Blanc has an all-aluminium V8. The Standard making 284 HP and the top of the line Turbo S and SE making 406 HP with a turbo. They are only available in Canada, USA and Europe.
This is the base model, the Standard.
The turbo is the most popular one as it gives the V8 a turbo and still keep it factory-looking. It can also get the same fuel economy as the Standard, which is 21.4 mpg.
This is the Turbo version. You can also see what the rear looks like.
The Turbo SE are mostly bought by elites as it was over $40000, $43542 (without mark-up) to be exact. These are the ones that you don’t see in the racing scene often.
The Turbo SE, the most expensive version of the Mont Blanc
These days, you can see most of them in the racing and drifting scene. The Turbo SE holds its value well while the others are relatively cheap in the used-car market. Although it was never made for the Asian markets, some people import them to Asia.
I’ll be sharing the car files. Have fun! Thank you…

Nice Kouki S14 :3
Maybe at least the base model could have given the third generation Vagant in its V6 trim some competition…
1975, still in the fuel crisis. TSR started using turbocharging technology to their Kansai in the form of the GTS Phase 2. They decided that they want to use that on a mid-engined car. But, the 1st generation Ultra was discontinued in 1973. Instead of bringing the Ultra nameplate back alive, they created a new one called the Comet. They created a turbocharged 3.2 litre flat-six with it. It was meant to be affordable (although how can a turbocharged sports car in the mid 70s fuel crisis be affordable?). Normal people wouldn’t buy these because of the fuel crisis. But, it’s way more affordable than the Kansai. So, some people would buy these…
A caramel brown 1975 TSR Comet
The Turbo 2 was introduced in 1981. It has better tires, more camber on the front and rear, different rims, a mechanical LSD, 3 piston brake calipers, a standard 8 track radio, variable hydraulic power steering, advanced 80s safety, new ball bearing turbos, single point EFI, and a three-way catalytic converter to improve airflow. It is now lighter thanks to a full aluminium body as opposed to the corrosion-resistant steel of the turbo.

TSR in Indonesia - 2019 TSR C-MPV
MPV dari TSR pertama di Indonesia! (The first MPV from TSR in Indonesia)
When TSR entered the Indonesian market in 2000, they sold the 1st generation Kishita for the first time. They were compared with similar cars such as the Toyota Yaris and Honda Jazz. Then, they sold the Itakara and soon he Kogarashi. Fast forward to 2018, they still sell those three cars. Right now, the demand for MPV is high and TSR needed a car for it. The Kazoku MPV (will be revealed later…) was too large. The solution is making a new compact MPV. They took the chassis from the Itakara and design an MPV body. The result was this, the TSR C-MPV. They built the car in Indonesia to avoid the import taxes.
TSR C-MPV Smart
This is the base model of the C-MPV. Equipped with the 2 litre turbocharged inline 4 that will be used in almost every single model (except for the Taikan, Ultra, Kansai, Fallwing and Tora). It can do 46.5 mpg. With mark-up, this car cost Rp 321,380,964 ($21578)
TSR C-MPV Style
This is the top-of-the-line model of the C-MPV. Equipped with a more powerful version of the inline 4. It can do 42.5 mpg. With mark-up, this car cost Rp 347,787,880 ($23351).
It’s main competitor is the Saminda Randis, Suzuki Ertiga, and more.

The pinnacle of TSR’s 80s luxury
Remember the Mont Blanc? Well, this is the predecessor, the Mont Royale. It uses the same flat 6 as the Comet, but tuned for more power. Because it is created during the Group B era, the all-wheel-drive technology is implemented to the Mont Royale. It was aimed to fill in the GT market that TSR has lost for 6 years since the last Kansai, the Kansai GTR. It was bigger and heavier, but also full of technology. They put in every technology they have in the 80s. All double wishbone suspension, turbocharging, cassettes, air suspension (only in the Turbo R) and more! The result is 1554kg (on the Turbo R) of a car filled with luxury and technology. The Turbo R also has a two-tone paint job with the colour combination of your choice.

The new 2019 TSR Itakara Interceptor
If you want to make this car a police car of a city, please do and if possible, decorate it to make it looks more like a police car. If you want to photoshop it, I would love to see it. If you just want to check it out, you’re more than welcome. If you want to put it in a movie, go ahead. Now arrest those bad guys!

Group B [Reboot]
Forget about that Omega, I am not satisfied with it. It doesn’t look good and it doesn’t make us much power as I want. So, here’s the reboot, using the TSR Comet.
TSR is making an AWD system to fit in the Comet. Because it is very complicated, it took them 3 years (since 1982) to fit the AWD system. The result was the Group B homoligation version is called the Turbo 2 RS. It not only has AWD, but the turbocharged flat-six is producing 426HP. A lighter sports interior as well as a more tuned suspension. All the trims are now painted gloss black instead of plastic. Bodywork has been reworked to give both better downforce and a better apearance. Only 200 of these are made just like what the regulations said.
The front lip is now bigger and the fender has a scoop to release all the heat from the brakes. The hood is now black. The rims are change to the 8-spoke design that is still used in TSR models today, and it’s still made of magnesium like usual.
The rear bumper also has a lip. The trunk is also black. There is also a scoop right under the rear window to feed air to cool the 426HP 2.8 litre turbocharged flat-six.
And this is the rally version that is actually used in the Group B rally. The engine is now tuned up to 646HP. But the intersting part is that TSR decreased the stroke to unlock the ability to rev higher (7500 RPM). Tires are switched to rally tires, added an offroad undertray and a rally suspension to be able to absorb the landings after the jumps. A big wing is custom made to fit on the Comet to give more downforce, mudflaps are added and the rally lights are added on the hood.
This specific car never raced before. It is not sponsored yet. This one is kept in the TSR museum along with some other rally Comets that have been raced.

Cult of Personality [LORE] [FINAL RESULTS]
uh oh, you’ve just been arrested by the ISPLACEMENT OLICE
Endless ban from Group B will come to you unless you pledge allegiance to our lord and saviour Michelle Mouton and also update your cars to fit actual group B rules… You’re not that far anyway "^^
Also it’s a really good looking car and I can’t see it not participate so uh, yeah.
I should have researched it first. Don’t worry, I will edit it later…
EDIT: I HAVE ALREADY MAKE THE COMET FIT INTO THE GROUP B RULES
Do you mind if I make a custom car out of a comet?
Funny that I’ve also have a comet on my line.
Except that doesn’t tell the whole story. That only shows the categories that were used. They covered a full range of displacements to upwards of 5L…
“The FISA (FIA) mandated that forced induction engines (with a turbo or supercharger) would get a multiplication factor of 1.4 to calculate their “final” engine displacement figure. Meaning that, in example, a twin-charged Lancia Delta S4, although it had a 1759 cc engine, would get a final cc rating of 2463 cc. The adjusted figure was used to determine minimum weight requirements and maximal tire width for the particular model.
Race minimum weights;
~1000 cc = 590 kg (1300 lb)
1001~1299 cc = 675 kg (1490 lb)
1300 ~1599 cc = 750 kg (1650 lb)
1600~1999 cc = 820 kg (1810 lb)
2000~2499 cc = 890 kg (1960 lb)
2500~2999 cc = 960 kg (2115 lb)
3000~3999 cc = 1100 kg (2425 lb)
4000~4999 cc = 1235 kg (2725 lb)
5000+ cc = 1300 kg (2865 lb)
Maximal tire width combinations (for one side of the vehicle – staggered setups allowed);
~1000 cc = 16″
1001~1299 cc = 17″
1300 ~1599 cc = 18″
1600~1999 cc = 20″
2000~2999 cc = 22″
3000~3999 cc = 24″
4000~4999 cc = 26″
5000+ cc = 28″”
So… yeah. Take that!
I don’t mind. Its ok.
The new 2019 TSR Mont Blanc.
This is the new 2nd generation Mont Blanc. The 1st generation was in production until 2002. Then it goes through a 17 year hiatus. Now, the new Mont Blanc is revealed. If the Kansai was the sport-oriented GT car, then the Mont Blanc is the comfort-oriented GT car. And that is why they released the Mont Blanc. It was cheaper and less powerful than the Kansai, but more comfortable, luxurious, quiter, save more fuel and it’s cheaper. It also uses the new V8 that will be used in the 4th generation Fallwing. Of course, AWD is standard across all versions.

The birth of the Itakara
It is the beginning of the 90s and TSR needed a fun and affordable sports car for the family. So, they designed a car and in 1993, the Itakara came out. It has 3 engine options, the NA SOHC 2 litre I4, NA DOHC 2 litre I4 and a turbocharged DOHC 2 litre I4. The suspension is McPherson struts in the front and multi-link suspension in the back. The Itakara has many trim levels. Let us explain.
G - NA SOHC 2 litre I4
D - NA DOHC 2 litre I4
T - Turbocharged DOHC 2 litre I4, AWD standard (no need X)
Second letter and third letter
S - Tuned engine and suspension with alloy rims
X - All-wheel drive
Example: GSX - Tuned NA SOHC 2 litre I4 with tuned suspension and all-wheel drive with alloy rims
RS is not is not a combination of any of the letters mentioned. It means the sportiest and fastest Itakara with AWD.
This is the Itakara G. It is the base model. Equipped with an NA SOHC 2 litre I4 producing 116HP to the front wheels. These have steel rims only. When it was new, it’s price was $9292 without mark-up. That means that lots of young teenagers all around the world buy these cars and modify them.
This is the GS. It is the sportier variant of the G. It now has a sportier suspension, alloy wheels and the same engine but tuned to 138HP.
The D, DS, DX and DSX have their window trim gloss black. The D and DX have a 2 litre DOHC I4 producing 162HP. The DS and DSX have the same engine but tuned to 189HP.
The T and TS came standard with all-wheel drive. So, the letter X is not needed in the name. They both have gloss black roof and window trims. Both of them are turbocharged, hence the first letter is T. The T produces 236HP while the TS produces 253HP.
This is the ultimate first generation Itakara. In 1995, they wanted to go race in the Group A rally. They needed a good foundation to work on their Group A rally car. They created the RS. Only 2000 were ever made. They are the most sought after version of the Itakara. Due to the gentleman agreement in Japan, all of the JDM Itakara RS have a boost restrictor which limits the engine to 276HP. But, most people who bought them remove the boost restrictor for more power. Stock Itakara RS without the boost restrictor can produce 285HP.
The actual Group A rally car will be posted tomorrow. Stay tuned for more. Thank you.
