Like the CSR this is a shopping car challenge.
DISCLAMER, To avoid any misunderstanding: The following sentences only partialy reflect my ideas (as i explained HERE), there are made only to make a context to the challenge.
This may be very unpopolar: i’m tired of overpowed cars, every time all the cars submitted (and requested) to the challenges are IMHO largely overpowerd. For examples:
CSR 34, he look for a crossover, explicitly not too powerful, i submit a 120hp car (the same power of a Nissan Qashqai, the best seller in many european states) but it’s underpowerd
Purchasing Department Challenge: they was looking for a truck, i submit a 190hp pick up (more than any Mitsubishi L-200 ever made) but was too weak.
I can continue like this for pages and pages…
So, i think it’s time to end this:
Milano, Italy, February 2017
My 18yo son just got his licence and now he want his first car. Only one rules: make a car that is attractive for me to buy him with 18000$ (at 30% markup).
But be aware of the italian rules:
-For the first year of licences you can drive only cars that have less than 70kW AND the power to weight ratio is lower than 55 kW/t.
-Milan city center is restricted to pollutants (under Euro 5) cars.
EDIT!!! To make things more realistic, engineering time is penalized.
Suggestions: -Price around 18000$ (30% markup) -Must be safe and economical -Not too big (parking space is limited) -Appealing for a young guy Rules: -Max 70kW (93.8hp) -Max 55kW/t (73hp/1000kg or 31.7hp/1000lbs) (with symbol "t" i mean metric ton, 1t=1.102 US ton) -Sellable in Fruinia -Under 75 emissions (last tab) -If the sum of car and engine engineering time is more than 145, for each month over the limit 100$ will be added to final price.

You will earn bonus points for advertise your car in the thread
P.S. In Italy the minimum octane rating at the fuel pump is 95, they don’t sell anything under that.
Questions I replied on the thread:
- I can only use FF or RR? No, you can use all the configurations you like, FF and RR are only two examples.
- I need to add 75kg to the weight of the car? No, even if the italian laws sum the driver weight, the weight to calculate power to weight ratio is the one you can find in the last tab of the car designer.
- Can we get some more info on how the competition is scored? No, but you can read THIS to have an idea.
- The price can be higher than 18000? Yes, but it’s not recommended.
