I didn’t think I’d manage it either, but I should focus on csr149 reviews now! Thank you for the kind words too!
Well, it looks great, there’s no need to argue about it. I generally like the Porsche Macan and that’s why I’m excited about something like this. Yes, the prices for it are cosmic, of course, and that’s why I’m thinking about a used car. I would probably pay more only for the sport seats, keyless entry into the car, rear view camera, heated steering wheel, dynamic lighting system, navigation and ventilation of the front seats.
Some mighty fine cars in this competition
I got motivated waaaay late in the game and made mine yesterday.
Do you want an Italian hypercar, or do you want an ITALIAN HYPERCAR? There’s a difference. If you just want the former, you can go to Fiat and their pet stable and ask for a carefully measured and balanced pony. If you want the latter, you’ll have to dig a little deeper.
From the perpetually angry and passionate region of Southern Italy hails the Bizzarro automotive atelier. We do it the old-fashioned way: Chasing speed, consequences be damned. We lay up our CFRP body panels by hand; By God, your car will be unique one way or another. We don’t have the budget to design an entire new engine, just our unique 5-valve head designs - so to get maximum power, we slapped a couple of them atop a race-prepped aluminum 454 big block. We give you the most top-end navigation system possible - by contracting some big-name German electronics company to make one for us.
The GR-X is our latest and most insane car, with a current output of 730 horsepower from that GM-based engine (and yes, it chops a fair amount and sounds beautiful), and it’s good to reach the monstrous milestone of 400 kilometers an hour. That’s 249 mph for our most valued American customers. 0-60 is 3 seconds, quarter mile is 10.3, and 3280 feet is 17.8. The design language is meant to evoke past great Italian hypercars, because God knows the new ones look like melted cheese. We did go seriously, unironically all out on the car’s safety system - because you can’t buy another one if you’re a corpse. Downforce is a balanced affair, allowing you to reach the maddening aforementioned top speed while keeping tire grip steady at any pace. Finally, we at Bizzarro trust our customers - therefore, you get a real manual. No F1 flappies here, you control the whole car… God help you.
Well, I been driving all night, Devil by my side,
I used to call him Jekyll, now I call him Hyde.
Teeth like granite, fingers of gold,
Are we gettin’ ugly, or are we gettin’ old?
Sugar, sugar, sugar, you look so mean!
Honey, honey, honey, drinking gasoline!
With an additional submission from @Texaslav
I did the car in 7hrs…
And as far as it being the worst looking car of the bunch…I appreciate your kind words.
Considering I’m doing the CSR judging right now, I’ll pass hosting round 10 to next in line! @abg7
To be fair it was a very tough competition, all cars looked cool
My engine was too small maybe(3.0 ttV10 making somewhere in the very low 400s) annnnnnndddddd I tuned the turbo by myself lol…bad move. Oh, and I thought fiberglass was cool to use in a supercar from that era, but I was wrong. At the last minute I wanted to make a bigger NA engine but starting the SS2 the day before the deadline and going 7hrs strong, I was burnt out lol.
I still like the car tho.
I am indeed hosting the next QFC after all - just give me some time to come up with a suitable premise.
Well damn, I was really hoping to have this one. If I hadn’t decided against throwing in ESC, I very possibly would have. As ever, my desire to fit some automotive stereotype I like (in this case, the downright hazardous analog supercars of the day including the Carrera GT, the CC8S and Ford GT) got the best of me.
But congrats to Aruna! It took some serious confidence to go with that 16-cylinder, and I’m glad a configuration as radical as that was able to win overall.
What kind of engine exactly did you use to attain that output? Regardless, the dyno sheet shows it’s naturally aspirated, but I’m wagering it’s either a V10 or V12.
As for highest sportiness? It’s a modest 5.3L V10. For this project I “added lightness” and focused on overall attainable, usable performance. The car runs like a bat outta hell in Beam, especially on the Nur circuit. It’s only scary driving tendency is with full-manual esc mode, where the rear will step out with too much throttle, and it doesn’t want to come back as easily as other cars I’ve made.
As for pushrod suspension, it didn’t seem to fit the model year and price range.
I’ll take the highest sportiness credentials as a win on its own, and yes McLaren + Lotus + a little TVR was the inspiration. Thanks, great competition and beautiful cars.
Yeah that was a nice challenge ! Congrats to all of you !
Concerning LED headlights, they are period correct, since this technology started to be democratized in the 2000’s. I thought a little exoticism was right for this challenge. And yeah, 674 hp RWD, with a gearbox tuned for performance and not drivability, it’s intended to not be that drivable. (I am open to partnerships with funeral services XD)
@LS_Swapped_Rx-7 how was my suspension tuning? I feel as though I put some real effort in getting that right, so can you tell me how did I fare in that category?
And would my car not have been so bad in the 5 categories if my hp was on par with the rest of the competition?
Ill take the hit on fuel economy because I have no idea how to tune a turbo.
