This sort of is my thread for not quite over the top (or competition) cars which I put more than 5 minutes in creating and designing. Not in any particular order, not even time of creation.
In the - for germany - fateful year of 1888 on the even more fateful day of the 9th Novebmber, a young dutchman along with his half-italian colleague hand in the paperwork for their garage to become a registered workshop.
They call themselves H. S. van Oranje and P. R. Urbino, likely false names that just sound cool.
They have had found work in contracts issued by the Kaiser Wilhelm I. himself, and now, as the ‘Year of the Three Kaisers’ draws to a close, seek to utilize their established prestige to become independent entrepreneurs.
Over the years they have succeded in creating a stable company, even if it is rather limited in Production. They much more work as consultants to other industrial establishments, turning out actual production cars maybe once every five years.
During the Second World ███ , during which they seemingly continued as normal abroad, they have been rumored to have aided the creation of a state owned company called OMEGA, though nothing has been decisively proven.
Nowadays, Wagenmacher has a worldwide presence as a network of smaller production firms conceptualizing rather unusual cars and from time to time go after private contracts.
The badge of Wagenmacher is comprised of a fox scaling a ring, bringing life to the structual element.
the fox is fom Terrazis Animal Badge mod and the ring is an ‘O’
Alternatively, in case the fixtre isn’t available for whatever reason, just am overlapping WM
The last two I can agree with, especially with the car’s light weight, but the first one might put some off - here’s why:
Early 2000s sports coupes were mostly about agility, and a big, long, all-iron straight-five in the nose hooked up to an AWD system skews the weight distribution heavily towards the front (at least 60% front to 40% rear). Besides, all that iron can’t be good for emissions reduction, no matter how much less it costs (including PU/ET) compared to aluminum or aluminum-silicon alloys. Also, 10,000 more Euros just to get an extra 20 horsepower? That seems like a daylight robbery to me. It looks decent, though, especially as a rally car.
There's no car like this one. (55 km/h faster than the * cough * DB4, 100 hp up) - this is a true performance car, if there ever was one. Space frame chassis, aluminium panels and hand made interior make this a worthwile experience.
The 3.5 liter v12 isn't exactly outstandingly big, yet it has double the cylinders of a conventional i6 engine. It develops about 380 hp, catapulting the Turmfalke to 100 km/h in under 7 second, (3 whole seconds faster than the * cough * DB4).
The Exessiv version of the Habicht is, plainly, a turbocharged Supercar. And the main change over the Regulär is the use of even more aluminium. And the Turbo. And the Interiour. The list goes on and on.
But stops at the 20.000 Euros price over the Regulär.
