Reduit Automotive


1969 was an important year for many.... man landed on the moon, Kobacrashi's dad was born... and probably some other stuff happened too. However, on some small island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the government commissioned the creation of an automotive marque to operate out of the nation's many sheds.

What follows below is a collection of the many “creations” from the sheds in question. These “creations” will be listed in this post for no other reason me wanting to make a list… apparently each “creation” will have it’s own post in the thread too, but I guess you’ll have to wait for me to post those.





1979 Reduit GSR14

So basically… this car is weird… and very awful…

The entire story behind this one is about as boring as the car (very if it wasn’t obvious). Reduit was contacted by a bloke from the Europes, who wanted to build a crap family car to sell to the masses… we said oui.

A car so weird it has a different name…

So this one has a weird story… basically, when Reduit tried to sell performance cars in french-speaking countries, they realised that having a name which meant “discount” probably wasn’t a good idea. The name AYO is a direct result of the traditional exclamation “ayoooo”, which was used by the CEO upon discovering this naming issue. Also, this car is a wagon so I understand this may make some of you “excited”, but please try to remain calm.

Engine: 2.8 litre DOHC 24v V6
Power: 235hp @ 6800rpm
Torque: 206lb-ft @ 4800rpm

Choncc: 1501kg
Economy: 30.4 MPG (UK)
Speed: 148 MPH
0-62 MPH: 6.3 seconds

Looks a bit Saab-ish, especially from behind, and not too heavy, at just 1.5 metric tons. The AYO is clearly one of your better efforts - it just makes me want to say “Ayo!” whenever I see it.


2018 AYO NR5
The Brucemobile

So the story of the Brucemobile is unique, just like the ute itself, of which only 5 were made. Commissioned by a wealthy businesswoman in Hong Kong, the Bruce offers all the comfort and schport of a coupe on the track, as well as the practicality of a utility vehicle when needed. This rare vehicle is also one of the most economic vehicles ever produced by Reduit Automotive Group.

Engine: 2.6 litre DOHC 30v Inline 6
Power: 223hp @ 6400rpm
Torque: 235 lb-ft @
Thiccness: 4.75 metres long and 2.81 metres wide

How a country as small as Mauritius could have its own car industry seems to defy logic on paper, but I’m very glad they do. And yet… If you have such a long history in competitions, why aren’t many of your earlier builds shown here? At least you have resumed showcasing your builds with your TMCC 18 entry.

To answer your questions.

  1. Coming from myself as a Mauritian, the country itself just defies all logic so I wouldn’t worry lol.

  2. I got rather busy with edumactions so I didn’t have much time to fiddle with the thread every time I made a car. (If everything wasn’t incompatible I might’ve gone back to do it, but alas I can’t) I do hope to post a lot more of them now that I have the time though. In fact, If I can find pictures of my older cars I may do posts for them, but these would be without stats for obvious reasons.
