Are there any limits to this at all? Can we just post whatever car we like?

I’ve never heard of Magnolia on these forums, but this is a jaw-dropping start - and one that sets a very high bar for the company.

IVERA Motors AB brings their historic icon to Goodwood.


That historic icon is their Executive which originally came out in 1985. It took the whole world by storm proving that a Swedish company could be like the German giants. The Executive was sold throughout Europe but was known in Sweden as the IVERA 588. The car's design featured a unique front fascia with a strange quadruple headlight layout. Unfortunately, in 1992, the final IVERA Executive rolled off the production line at the factory in Malmo, Sweden. Today, the modern rendition of the Executive is a cheaper alternative to the German equivalents and is quite popular within the luxury markets.

1956 Mara Tovarish BRC Replica

Mara Motors has never been too focused on their history, esp. since most of it had taken part behind the ‘Closed Curtain’ - the Archanan isolation period before the global market liberalisation in the late 1980s/early 1990s. While Mara had a few appearances in international motorsport events over the decades, most of their early history was spent just ‘getting by’ under the constraints that had existed back then. It is therefore left to individual enthusiasts to preserve glimpses of that history.


Hillclimb time!

Cue this 1956 Mara Tovarish BRC in the unique racing livery that it sported during its brief stint in the 1950s BRC World Sportscar Championship in the under 1100cc class. None of the original cars survived, of course, but this faithful replica is as close as it gets. It is owned by a vintage racing enthusiast who plans to enter it into next year’s GT65 Historic Championships. Under the hood is a 1099cc Pchla I4 that had made over 50kW in BRC tune back in the day, and allowed the Tovarish to punch above its diminutive weight of 570kg. The replica building effort was aided by the fact that much of the Tovarish’ simple construction had remained largely unchanged between 1955 and the end of production in 1999.

That is basically 1990s levels of power output… in 1950. But with that engine installed in something as light and agile as the GP6-4L-50, its performance would have been otherworldly for its time.

Arion Heritage 2021


Presenting the Arion Heritage collection at Goodwood Festival of Speed, here you will find the most notable of Arions, past and present.


Arion ARD16 #8 '60

Shown in British Racing Green

The ARD16 (Arion Research & Development 16-Cylinder) is Arion’s first in-house built Formula 1 car, with an aluminium body and steel space frame chassis weighing in at 903.4kg paired to an impressive 4.5 litre V16 boasting 662.7hp @ 9200rpm naturally aspirated it made for an insane race car.

With no traction aids what-so-ever, this machine is only capable in the hands of the most talented racing drivers.

Goodwood Hillclimb time: 52.12


Arion Shoebill 545TI '18

Shown in British Racing Green

Featuring a peaky 545hp Twin Turbocharged 5 litre V8 able to reach 209mph and a 0-62 time of only 4.8s whilst weighing in excess of 2 tons (1997.2kg) the Shoebill 545TI is the ideal super saloon.

Sporting tasteful carbon fibre accents all over, a highly advanced air suspension system and a lightened but still plush with creature comforts interior what’s not to like?

Goodwood Hillclimb time: 59.75


Arion Polaris DKR #1 '20

Shown in British Racing Green

Arion’s late model Polaris was completely gutted down to the bare minimums, with a partial carbon-fibre tubular chassis and almost all the exterior panels being carbon fibre, the weight was brought down to an impressive 972.9kg.

The RWD Turbo Diesel 3 litre Inline 6 produces 370hp helping it achieve a 0-62 time of 3.1s and given enough room on tarmac, it’s estimated to be able to go 195mph, but the Polaris DKR wasn’t used on-road it was intent on winning the Dakar rally from 2020 onwards.

Goodwood Hillclimb time: 55.46


Arion Cassiopeia RS '20

Shown in British Racing Green

Introduced in late 2020, the Cassiopeia RS is Arion’s ultimate hypercar.

Powered by a 6 litre naturally aspirated V16 with 855.7hp @ 8900rpm aided up to over 1100hp with 250hp radial electromagnetic hybrid motors mounted to the front wheels paired to an extremely lightweight carbon fibre monocoque and body weighing in at only at 1259kg it could achieve 0-62mph in 2.9s and an eye-watering 290mph top speed.

The Cassiopeia RS utilises active aero and electromagnetic suspension giving it incredible braking and handling characteristics. Through the switch of a button the suspension can be changed from road-mode to RS-mode which lowers the height, adds optimal spring rates for the true racing experience.

Goodwood Hillclimb time: 47.75


We hope you enjoy the 2021 lineup and hope to see you next year!

NORDSCHLEIFE

6:10.385
Six minutes, ten seconds, and 385 milliseconds.

That was how long it took for the Splash-built Rinkai Magari time attack car to lap the storied Nürburgring Nordschleife. The car in question, designed, assembled, and tuned by Mizuiro’s Splash tuning division, is a silhouette car based on the original Rinkai Magari, a kei roadster from the late 1990s that takes its name from the Japanese word “曲がり” (which translates into “curve” or “bend”).

A custom-made turbocharged 2.4-litre inline-six and all-wheel drive add to the uniquely Japanese flavour of speed that many of the Magari’s non-kei contemporaries were endowed with. Of course, any competent time attack car can’t go without at least some attention paid to cornering performance, so Splash used a mostly-carbon construction combined with extreme aero devices and a wider track.

The resulting machine became a symbol of pride for Splash when despite understeer-inducing suspension issues, Hatzenbach Racing driver Bruno Aguette soldiered on to achieve a Nordschleife time rivalled by few others.

GOODWOOD

0:43.950
Splash, a Japanese tuning outfit founded by Akiichi Masugata (益賀多穐一) in 1997, started out tuning ECUs and suspension for various Rinkai models, usually by utilizing the potential of the stock engines with little, if any, detriment to reliability. In 2000, the formerly niche tuner gained more of a following when, on a made-to-order basis, they modified 50 examples of the Rinkai JIKO—a twin-turbocharged mid-engined roadster that served as the automaker's "swan song" prior to merging with Shimizu Automotive and becoming Mizuiro.

Over the following two decades, Splash would begin tuning Mizuiro’s turbocharged cars before manufacturing turbo kits of its own, as well as tending to other areas such as weight reduction and the ability to switch engine tunes on the fly. Their second full tuning package came in the form of a Mizuiro Hanabi with a longitudinal rear-wheel drive setup, limited to 250 examples. By 2005, Splash’s experience with and predilection for Rinkais and Mizuiros earned it a position as a first-party Mizuiro tuner; this status was promptly put to use with a run of 50 factory-modified Kasui hybrid sedans, some of which were sold outside of Japan. For Mizuiro, Splash served not only as an aftermarket brand, but also as a means of marketing themselves towards car enthusiasts in a more accessible manner. What was originally a comparatively mild tuning company had, by the mid-2010s, become a dedicated performance and motorsports division.

With a small but dedicated team of seasoned engineers and technicians, Splash is now Mizuiro’s way of showing the world what the company has to offer in terms of performance, with the Goodwood Festival of Speed in particular providing a golden opportunity to showcase what Masugata describes as his team’s magnum opus.

OOC: The section about Splash pertains to my future iteration of Mizuiro, as I plan on rewriting its lore when Light Campaign v4.2 releases. Also, the above "shot" of the Magari at the hillclimb is my first manip, so please do me a favour and don't tear into it too much. Thanks.

Oh, and this should be the last of me milking this car until I rebuild it in LCV4.2.

SC - 917 Terminus

The pinnacle of all V12 engines could only be found in an SC. In 2020 we wanted to push the boundaries in the high end automotive market. Since we have a small line-up with supercars, we wanted to go just one step further. An hypercar made for the road. Gentle and aggressive at the same time.

This year at Goodwood we celebrate the 917 Terminus it’s short but succesfull life. Now, let me be short and give you the time:
