Zenshi Automotive Japan - ゼンシ


#25

The V12 is mainly used for smoother power delivery, allowing for a smoother ride for the driver and the passengers, the smaller size contributes to getting more power on the redline. The 4.8L V8 used in the Axia was originally planned for use, but was eventually scrapped in favor of the V12.

Nice. Still, 450hp out of it is very, very nice indeed on such a car as this :sunglasses:


#27

Zenshi Nimessa (6th Generation, XUN63), 2017-

The UN63 Nimessa made replaced the UN53 in the start of the 2017 year, now carrying the Shinka design.

The 6th generation Nimessa was heavily re-engineered from the ground up, including the engine ranges. The result is that of a slightly lighter body and more efficient powertrain options.

Given the Shinka design treatment, the Nimessa now sports an aggressive look, and similar performance to boot within it’s class.

At the moment, the Nimessa is powered by the updated QS20GDA 2.0L Inline-4 engine, with power rated at 162 HP and 144 lb-ft. Transmission options being the standard traditional 6-Speed Manual and the 6-Speed AvanTec. A turbocharged variant is planned to come at a future date.

The UN63 Nimessa, like before, will come in different body styles, such as a coupe, a hard top convertible (JP and EU only), and the Nimessa Penta hatchback. Coupe and HTC versions will arrive at a later date.

New Nimessa have a really good look! :wink:


#32

How’d you make custom tachos dude? Did you draw them yourself?


#33

Yessir. I mainly utilized powerpoint.


#34

You gotta teach me, I have a massive thing for unique tachos. Drawing pad or just photoshopping circles together?


#35

I may do a tut on how I do them someday!


#36

Really nice looking car, very impressed with that gauge cluster too!

Is the Nimessa marketed as a compact or as a mid-size?


#37

The Nimessa is Zenshi’s compact, as the Altrea is the midsize.


#38

Neat! Thought that might be the case. They really come across to me as sensible options for cars in their class. Certainly gives your fellow Japanese maker Saminda a run for their money…


#39

Looks nice, attractively priced and easy on gasoline… I can’t wait for the high-performance variants because this car has lots of potential!


#40

You’ll see one soon enough.


#41

ZMD-designed parts are now available as an option for the 2017 Altrea in Japan.

Zenshi GT (7th Generation, XRZ47), 2010-2017 (2017 Facelift)

The redesigned 7th generation GT was introduced to public view under the GTZ prototype back in the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. The base design was finally revealed just recently of April 2017 after many disputed design decisions until an unanimous one was decided.

Design-wise, not much was deviated for the front of the GT, which still clearly showcases the Shinka design. A leaner, more aggressive front is seen at first glance, letting the viewer know that this 2+2 boasts strong performance.

The rear is more rounded compared to before, and despite this, the GT still contains the styling found in it’s predecessors within the taillights.

For engine options, the 3.7L LZ7-RME inline-6 engine is carried over from the previous versions, with power rated at 310 HP. The 4.8L SA48GDA engine however, has been updated even further from last year’s update, now making 444 HP compared to 420 HP. Both have the option of either a 6-Speed Manual or the 6-Speed AvanTec.

Upper trim models of the GT feature a gauge cluster with a large digital display.

—MOTORSPORTS—

The 7th Generation GT is the car Zenshi will once again represent as themselves in the 2017-2018 Super GT season as the Zenshi Super GT.


#43

That machine is quite a looker… I’d order a 4.8 Manual in Ramune Mica if I could! And on top of that, I’d have an Altrea in Hyper Flare Yellow as a daily driver to complement it nicely.


#44

Zenshi is projected to officially reveal the 2017 Kamata sports hatchback later on tonight in Japan. A brief history of the model will be presented before the reveal.
