In the 1990s, ETK decided to start replacing their straight-six engines by more modern V6s. This particular engine debuted in 2001 on ETK 1000 Series.
Their fans were greatly disappointed and were mourning the classic ETK straight-six. After two decades, ETK finally listened to their complaints and started bringing the straight-sixes back, gradually phasing out the V6s. This was the last V6 to remain on ETK vehicles, being manufactured until 2017.
This engine is loosely based on one of the engines a real German premium car manufacturer uses on cars similar to ETK 800 Series.
