An 80s compact American coupe and hatchback.
Hello, everyone. And I want to show you the new complete mod of mine.
It is an 80s American compact car that is 'dark' period of the American car industry. There was no old compact car of America on BeamNG.drive currently, so I want to make that one.
I have benchmarked Mercury Capri, Dodge 400, Honda prelude, Buick Riviera/Reatta, and Dodge Daytona for a coupe, Chevrolet Citation, Hyundai Excel for the hatchback.
The development process of the vehicle was made by joint development with Japan's Ibishu Corp. The era of the car's creation was a difficult time for many U.S. auto industries that failed to keep up with strict U.S. auto regulations. The independent development did not perform well due to U.S. auto regulations, and many people were trying to turn to Japanese or German products. In order to break through these difficult times, Gavril briefly laid down its existing independent development route and proposed to Japan's Ibishu to develop a subcompact based on compact cars sold at the time. Ibishu, who is on a roll with the bubble economy, is willing to accept the development of the project to advance into the field of large cars that were struggling at the time.
The Mione, a vehicle from the process, was developed based on Ibishu's U.S. market compact Corvette. The existing corvettes' short battlefields have been increased to enhance collision stability and improve hatchback structure to have a wider interior space. On the other hand, the absence of a sports coupe has led to the development of a two-door coupe model using a corvettes chassis. In the driving line, there was little change except for the four-wheel drive system, and instead it is equipped with Gavril's six-cylinder engine, focusing on high-performance models. The engine, like the Volkswagen VR engine, had a very short bank angle between the pistons, which made it easy to fit into the engine room of narrow corvettes.
In 1987, Mione makes her debut splendidly throughout the United States. From 2.2-liter passenger van specifications to 3.3-liter sports coupe specifications, the company showed efforts to recognize and sell various consumers. Gavril will not stop there and build a rally car based on the vehicle. Although he did not perform well, he achieved some success in his efforts to shake off the image of American cars as dull and heavy. Based on this, Gavril plans to sell the vehicle in Europe as well, and in fact has shown significant sales in its European branch. Confidently, Gavril decided to help Ibishu develop a semi-large car and emerge as a business partner, leading to a technical partnership until the economic crisis hit in 1998.
