TSR Automotive

TSR Automotive

TSR Automotive is a company founded by 2 men, Ryo Eishi & Tomoyaki Takashiro. Tomoyaki’s father, Akira Takashiro loves cars. He runs a shop to service early Automobliles in the early 1900s. At 1909, Tomoyaki was born. Cars are his second nature. He loves cars so much but all that was destructed with the WWII. At 1939, Tomoyaki made engines for the war effort and at the end of WWII, he was rich. At 1949, he saw the market for cars and wanted in. So, he created TSR Automotive. TSR stands for TakaShiRo. So, they set up their first factory in Nara, Kansai prefecture, Japan. It was a small factory just like a workshop type of building. Tomo loves the deers there. He met Ryo for the first time and became best friend since then. Their mission is to make the best car for the money. With that in mind, the beginning isn’t as exactly planed as what they two have planed. They start with a very ambitious project, a grand tourer with heaps of power and comfortable. Seeing that the couple are very rich, they rolled out with their first model, the TSR Model One.

It is quite a good car. To learn more about this car, click here! Since then, they have made plenty of successful models over the years. TSR is now one of the largest Japanese car company in the world with many factories in America, Europe, Australia and Asia.

Not that I would have done it any better myself so don’t take it wrong. But the whole car looks very modern and up to date, and somehow the front end does not fully match it, it’s a bit like if someone grafted a front end from a late 90s Ford Mondeo on a modern car… But other than that I don’t have any complaints…it looks right for what it is. :slight_smile:


@Knugcab Precisely my thoughts!

Thank you for your opinion! We’ll try to fix that when there is a facelift.

This is a very attractive super sedan from most angles, but surely it does not deserve to have the front fascia from a 1996-99 Mondeo flipped upside-down? It’s definitely very fast, though, with its lusty V12, and should handle as if it were much lighter, thanks to clever tuning.

The TSR Kansai
First launched in 2010, the TSR Kansai has been the halo car for TSR. The target is to defeat the Nissan GTR R35 with a lower price. $113000 is the price for the top of the line NR5 model with a 10% mark-up. It is still in production today. The TSR Kansai has a 3.0 litre V6 producing 536 HP to 683 HP (depending on the trim)

Trims (all +10% mark-up):
GT ($90000)
GT Premium ($93000)
GTR ($100500)
GTR Black Edition ($105000)
NR5 ($113000)
NR5 Carbon ($118000)
NR5EE ($120300)

Special features:

  1. The NR5 Carbon has a carbon hood and rear diffuser.
  2. The NR5EE (Enthusiast Edition) is only available with a manual transmission. Less than 200 are made.
  3. The GTR Black Edition is all blacked out with some carbon fibre accents.

The Kansai line has a much more modern appearance than the FallWing, but I fear that its 3-litre V6 will have massive lag when turbocharged all the way to nearly 700 horsepower. However, what’s never in doubt is that even the base trim is guaranteed to be very fast.

And the lime green paint you’ve chosen as the signature color for the NR5 trim definitely works well on all your current models - it reminds me of Jungle Green on the Series II VF Commodore for some reason. Speaking of which, the nose of the Itakara also reminds me of the VFII.

The Raider is a premium SUV is bursting with presence… and power. But I still want more detailed specs on the Raider line. I want to find out how much power and torque both engines develop, along with the full set of performance figures for each trim.

Edit: Thank you for providing me with the details on the Raider range. But it should not have single-digit fuel economy, even though it’s a hulking full-size premium SUV.

TSR found that their fans aren’t happy with how the new 2019 Fallwing looks, especially at the front. Production will be postponed until early 2019. Prices will also change. Engine is changed. Chassis is still going to be the same. Trim levels are still going to be the same with an added trim.

The history of the TSR Ultra

1966, the Lamborghini Miura is born, Keika has their Keika I and TSR needs a mid-engine supercar to compete with. So, they design the 1966 TSR Ultra. Made from a space-frame chassis and a fibreglass body, the TSR Ultra is very light.

-MY67 TSR Ultra Competition (JDM Model)

-MY67 TSR Ultra GTS (JDM Model)

Soon after that, there is the 1966 Great Archanian Trek. TSR decides to compete. They thought they could use the 1965 Fallwing. But it’s too long and might get stuck on big rocks. So, TSR decided to use the Ultra. But not just any Ultra. They have to borrow a chassis of another truck and retrofitted the Ultra body onto it. The result, a 4x4 off-road monster with the same 3.2 litre all-aluminium V8 as the base model Ultra. Apparently by popular demand, TSR decided that they sell the Rally Safari Edition. Only 20 examples were only made.

At 1995, when they were tuning Honda NSXs and TSR Itakaras and won Le Mans, TSR and NR5 decided that they want to have their own NSX. So, they built one from the ground-up. Molding the NSX body by fibre-glass first and modify the looks, panels made of carbon fibre and NR5’s own bespoke chassis, are made of corrosion-resistant steel. Then, they design their own engine instead of using the NSX’s engine. It was an all-aluminium V8 with the code name B8-40A (for the Touring) and B8-40B (for the NR5) and just like that, the car is done. The NR5 N1 version is just a more track-focused version of the NR5 with stripped-down interior and higher downforce. They stopped production at the year 2000 with 1030 units made since 1995.

New Hope
Since the death of the Ultra at 2000, there were rumors that TSR is going to make a hypercar. That hypercar might be the Ultra. So far, only a picture is taken of that car. There are only little information about this car. But its mission is to beat the world record of the highest top speed of any street-legal production car.

2019 TSR Kansai Official Teaser

What do you think?

The history of the TSR Kansai

1955 (1st generation)
TSR needed a GT car. They created the Kansai. It sold really well and enable them to get big profit with big mark-ups. At 1956, they started importing the Kansai to the US to see if it sells well in the US. With import taxes and other stuff, the car became expensive although still sellable. The car was ahead of it’s time using all wishbone suspension (front and rear) and a 4.8 litre DOHC (Dual Overhead Cam) V8. At 1957, TSR makes the SL Fallwing trim which is exclusively for the US.

1960 (2nd generation)
The 2nd generation is also very popular. Although the front is weird, the rear makes up for it. It now utilizes a DOHC I6 instead of a V8. As expected, it sold well in the US and other countries.

-Luxor trim shown circa 1961

Original advertisement is here!

2000 (3rd generation)
TSR haven’t made the Kansai for 40 years since the first time the 2nd generation was launched. This one, the purist says is the worst and weirdest one. Normally, the older generations has RWD only. Well, this generation is FWD available with AWD for the 1st time. The base trim is an inline-4 with a V6 available in higher trim levels. The car’s design is very uninspiring. Some say the worst looking from all Kansai’s. Maybe because the design team only concentrated at the front rather than the back. Although quite competitive, this generation don’t sell well. At least for the first time, it came with an NR5 trim at 2002. Unfortunately, this generation is not a true GT car…

-RS trim shown circa 2001

2010 (4th generation)
TSR needs something to rival the Nissan GTR. It’s very fast and advanced. Well, they came out with the 4th generation Kansai. This time, no inline-4 and AWD comes as standard for the first time. Sales were improving. In 2017, the Enthusiast Edition was introduced featuring a Manual. Only for the NR5, it made sales increased by 5% only. Less than 200 Enthusiast Edition Kansai’s were made.

-NR5 Carbon trim shown

20XX (5th generation)
The year is unknown but the 5th generation is coming. Featuring a more aggresive design language and a different and more advanced V6. So far, only teasers were shown. As always, AWD as standard.

If you want to see the 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation Kansai, please contact (PM) us for a test drive. Unfortunately, the 4th generation is unavailable.
