VTR - Performance. Enthusiasm. Lifestyle

Hello everyone!

You’re here for the same reason we are here: cars. Our passion for cars. And we’re here to share this passion with the whole world!

Formely known as Vector Motors and then changed to Victor Motors, the company’s founder needed to seek a new identity for the brand. And now, he believes he found it.

Now going full power by the name VTR, the brand represents a change of perspective on the previous cars and a refreshed idea of what the future ones will be. The company maintains its focus on performance cars while also trying new ideas and share those designs with the public. The goal remains the same: become a reference in the world of the automotive industry.


CLASS IDENTIFICATION

VTR Motors has its main focus on road cars. But as mentioned earlier, we want to try our hands on different types of cars too. With that said, our company will focus on 5 specific car types, each one identified by a different border color on its posts.

Let us explain how we will define these car types.



OFF-ROAD

Off-road vehicles, like the name suggests, are vehicles that excel out of the asphalt and are built to handle uneven surfaces or the ones with poor traction. Their design and structure allows them to move around those uneven surfaces with greater ease than normal cars. Due to their ability to drive almost everywhere, they have a sense of freedom and adventure attached to them.

Keep in mind that every vehicle has their limitations, so be sure to know your route beforehand or you could risk getting stuck in a deep mud puddle.


SPORTS

Sports cars are the entry cars in VTR Motors. They are mainly used for casual and city driving and are great for those who want an easy to drive car while also being able to have fun when going all out.

PERFORMANCE

These cars are the driving force of VTR Motors. They are superior than Sports cars, specially in terms of power, speed, acceleration and handling. Depending on the car, they are your first choice to take for a spin at your local racetrack.

In the hands of the right driver, Performance cars show why the boring city streets are not their natural habitat.


SUPER

Super cars are the most exclusive, expensive and exceptionally performing cars in the world. Their performance is somewhat held back on the city streets, but their design, exclusivity and high value makes them worth of admiration and awe either way.

Give them enough space to run and the Super cars show their hidden power. And provide to the most daring drivers an experience they won’t ever forget.


RACE

Race cars are prepared exclusively for the racetrack. Since they lack several components that are mandatory in normal cars (some of them related to safety, so it helps with weight reduction), they are not allowed for use in public roads. Their design, technology, components - everything in them are built in such a way to provide the edge they need to stay ahead of the competition.

With that said, may the Lord always guide us on our paths. See you on the road!

The placement, shape and size of the fixtures, combined with the choice of body, make it look like an early 2000s tuner car - way too simplistic and dated for the 2020s, let alone the 2010s. That said, the engine is fairly potent, but is that steel chassis at least treated? For the sake of environmental resistance, I hope it is.

You know there was an IRL Vector brand, right? Is this supposed to have picked up the rights to the name in Automationverse since the company is long gone, or is it completely unrelated?

I expect this one to be a completely unrelated brand, not just to the real-life company but also to the owners of the Automationverse’s Marvin, makers of the Contra muscle car whose modern-day replacement was the subject of CSC 32:

Originally I wanted my company to have my first name, but I wanted to come up with a more “original name”. I didn’t know there was a company that was actually named Vector; but since it’s gone, I guess I can use it and not be sued for it.

I guess I’ll have to change the company name to avoid further confusion.

That’s why I tend to google important names I come up with :smile:

As for the car - like Abg said, it looks more like 00s. Also, it’s a bit heavy I’d say for something meant to be fun on the track. Yes, yes, I know real life M3 is heavier, but it’s more powerful and from a more “regular” brand I’d say - this seems to be sth more like Porsche, from the description (I mean the brand, not the car itself)?

Yeah, it is treated. The first idea of this car was to make it based on the Fiat Tempra, a car that my father used to have here in Brazil. And in the school drawings I made of this car, I though it would look more interesting based on the “eagle-eye headlight Chevrolet Cobalt”; at least, the rear end of the car.

I think it stll looks good, despite using a 90s body.

Yeah, I liked the car a lot despite being so heavy for a track car. I thought “well, SUVs are heavy but they have a potent engine to make up for the weight”.

And also it uses steel as major body material, so… yeah - very heavy (unfortunately).

VICTOR TEMPERA V

I don’t know anything about you, but I am sure that when you were a kid, for some random reason you tried to skip the most steps of the staircase of your building. That’s the same idea with our Tempera. We raced through almost the entire alphabet just to get this far. Perhaps we might have gotten a little too far.

The Tempera V is an extremely radical change over the base model, made for high speed performance. Because of the huge power gain and the addition of a few other components, it ended up becoming heavier than the base model. But, the weight won’t be much of an issue thanks to the car’s overall improvements.

BODY:

  • 2 door sedan with 2 seats (driver and passenger), removed rear seats
  • AHS steel monocoque chassis with aluminium panels (appearently we didn’t learn anything from the base model)
  • metallic gray with carbon fiber and red details
  • “V” badges in color red
  • electric sunroof
  • xenon headlights and LED tailights

POWERTRAIN:

  • front longitudinal 2983cc inline 6 turbocharged engine, AWD, with 7-speed sequential gearbox
  • max power: 602 hp @ 7700 rpm
  • max torque: 651 Nm (480 ft*lbf) @ 6100 rpm
  • redline: 9500 rpm
  • max boost: 1,5 bar

HANDLING:

  • sport tires 20" carbon fiber wheels
  • brakes: 3 piston carbon ceramic (F)/ 2 piston carbon ceramic (R)
  • weight: 1619 kg (3569 lbs)
  • max speed: 330 km/h (205 mph)
  • 0 - 100 km/h: 3 s
  • cornering: 1,16 g

Price: $ 1140000

An updated version of the Tempera V with carbon fiber chassis and greater weight reduction will come soon.

TEMPERA SD

Time for a proper introduction. Now with a new identity, we can proudly share our latest creations with the world. And what better way to start over than with redesigning our first car? The way it should have been?

The last models presented to you were prototypes. We used the same body but now it has a better appeareance. Now both front and rear lights feature DRLs to bring out that sporty look (not only that, DRLs are cool).
Along with the changes, the car has a panoramic sunroof, new front and rear design, new wheels and a brand new identity.

The engine is still an inline 5 because it sounds cool, but now it’s strong enough to keep up with the car’s weight. It’s got a little extra displacement to make more power compared to the last car.

This car will come in two versions, a sedan (SD) and a coupe (CP); the latter will be presented afterwards.

That kind of construction would make more sense on a flagship supercar or grand tourer - a post-2010 mass-market sedan would be better off with an AHS steel chassis and partial aluminum panels, which is certainly heavier, but, on the other hand, is much cheaper to produce. It looks more period-accurate now, though, but still looks slightly dated to the late 90s/early 2000s due to the body unlock year of 1995 (as opposed to 2009 for the vanilla E82-esque body, and 2015 for the Polestar-like mod bodies). On the whole, though, it seems more resolved than the earlier incarnations were.

I tried using aluminium chassis on my first car but it turned out way too heavy for the engine. I used carbon fiber on this one to make it ligher. Yeah, carbon fiber is good for supercars but i wanted to make this one come competitive than the first Tempera.

TEMPERA CP

Now presenting the coupe version of the Temperal. It shares the same construction of its sedan counterpart, with the difference being, of course, the weight, number of doors, its 0-100 acceleration time and engine power.

On the outside, the CP has a carbon fiber spoiler, as opposed to the sedan’s wing, a 2 point exaust tip, a red metallic trim that goes through the side and rear of the body, white painted mirrors and the car’s trademark color: ‘Lenok Gray’.

Another explanation for its immense weight without the carbon monocoque: advanced 10s or 20s safety adds a lot of weight, mostly due to the sheer amount of equipment it comes with. Standard safety from the same era is lighter, of course, but that’s because it packs less equipment, and is therefore less effective.

DESERTOR V8

The second car designed during the early months of our company. While maintaining the important aspects of an SUV - interior space, confort for passengers and cargo space - it also has the right amount of power it needs to still make things interesting. Yes - the emphasis is the "sport" in sport utility vehicle.

Some of the defining traits of the Desertor are the beige interior, roof racks, rear spoiler and its defining panoramic sunroof which extends to both front and rear passengers. The trunk space has a cover with the same color as the interior which can be removed if needed. Even though its fast and powerful, it’s still a car for you to ease off the gas and enjoy the amazing view of the stars at night.

To stand out from other common SUVs, Desertor is equipped with a dual two point exaust to bring out all the roar of its powerful V8 engine, aided by a permanent AWD drivetrain.

HAVANA

A pickup truck's purpose is quite simple: carry lots of stuff from point A to point B. But what is the purpose of THIS pickup truck? Basically, burn rubber, make a lot of noise while carrying lots of stuff from point A to point B.

Inspired by the mad idea of our Australian friends, a V8 is the heart of this seemingly simple vehicle - but as the old saying goes: “don’t judge a book by its cover.” Once the engine comes to life, the story takes a whole different direction.

As you would expect from a V8 powered car, it has a great amount of power, and even so, it is still drivable and easy to control, specially for drivers who are not experienced with cars with more than 400 horses under the hood.

A few of the Havana’s features are the 21’’ 5-spoke wheels, high flow exaust system with dark aluminium tips, and in the cabin, a storage gap behind the seats and a extra compartment at the end of the center console, so you can carry your small belongings in the interior with ease.

The center console consists of two screens - the top one is related to the dual zone AC system and the lower one operates the radio and sound system, along with a built-in SatNav system.

SEVERO

The world nor time stops for anything. As we are moving on to the future, it seems our beloved cars will have a somewhat lifeless, empty or questionable design in a few years. Do cars really need to look like that? Will our cars be nothing more than just a means of transport? As one of our followers on social media said: 'if that’s what the future will be like, I rather live in the past!" So do we.

And that’s how the VTR Severo came to be.

This car represents what it would be like to make a car during the muscle era, but importantly, not letting go of the technology that makes the cars of today more reliable. And despite being made a few years ahead of the mentioned timeline, the car is not meant to be just another empty means of transport.

Unlike some of the cars built at that time, this one actually lives up to its name. A car with attitude, a car with a powerful engine;a car that puts the muscle wannabes of the 70’s and 80’s to shame. And now, it needs a driver with even more attitude so you both unleash your true potential.

Exterior features are chrome details on the windows and bumpers, chrome mirrors, black stickers on both sides and along the front of the car near the hood, hood scoop, full body kit (front bumper, side skirts and rear bumper), 21" 5-spoke black classic wheels, red brake calipers, rear spoiler and the “SEVERO” sticker on both sides of the rear end.

The interior is as simple as you would expect from a classic car, with the addition of speakers on the doors to accompany the JHD Sound System.
