LWB Grand Marshal + Gavril V12 (NA + QuadTurbo) 1.0

Luxuriate yourself

  1. Velstydez
    Hi! Another little tiny mod here. A bit more ellaborate this time. A friend suggested that there are a lot of LWB mods now, but not for the Grand Marshal, a car that really deserves it. This is also an exercise to better understanding modding for a bigger project, mainly regarding texturing.

    The mod features:
    • Pre-made LWB configs (albeit not all of them,)
    • LWB Rollcage
    • LWB exhausts
    • LWB driveshaft
    • Compatibility with pretty much any of the standard GM parts
    • Working skins (although the rust/old ones are a bit shoddy)
    • Longer Ad-carrier
    • Windowless C-pillar (might add the stock one back in an update) (Added!)
    Update v0.2
    • The LWB, which is 6in longer than the SWB, now weighs 200lbs more, as it should. The weight is realistically distributed between the frame, the body (doors and glass) and the rear running gear.
    • The LWB configs now include Heavy Duty shocks and springs to make up for the extra weight.
    • Fixed some interior geometry on the C pillars
    • Config information now has actual weight information
    • Revised rear doors shading

    Added:
    • Now you can choose between both windowed and window-less C-pillar. The configs include both versions:
    • Cheap LWB variants have the windowed version: fleet, BCPD, etc.
    • More expensive versions, including Taxi and Police use the thick C-pillar
    • Gavril V12 engine, with custom ECU and Sound. Torque curve and main sound sample is from Automation, but it has been tweaked. There is a config with this engine included.
    Update v1.0

    The final addition to this mod: the Quad Turbo version of the V12




    Includes:
    - Fully custom engine model (save for the block)
    - Reorganized engine bay
    - Dual intake for the NA version
    - Quad Turbo config
    - Special Drift V12 Turbo Config

    Fixes:
    - Fixed missing center brake light
    - Replaced radiator with HD Drag radiator in V12 config

    Story of the V12

    Gavril started a performance related project, for which they took 2 modular V8s, removed 2 cylinders from each, and thus created a 90º V12. Although the base engine was the 4.5, which would give 6.75L as a V12, since the application was meant to be sporty, the stroke was reduced for increased revs and responsiveness, thus resulting in "just" 6L, and a conservative redline of over 7000 rpm. It produced about 300hp and 440 lbft (~600Nm) in a very smooth way in its NA form. This was not enough for the application, so Gavril decided to stick 4 Barrett Turbos to it, to build the perfect plumber's nightmare.

    Unfortunately due to the financial situation the project was cancelled at the very last moment, just after production for the V12 block had started. Only about a hundred units had been made at that time, but in order not to waste them, Gavril decided to fit them to the Grand Marshall, which was easy because it was the car that they were using to test the engine in the first place. Thus, the super exclusive but not so expensive V12 LWB Grand Marshal hit the roads. The turbo version never got to be fully tuned and was never sold. The only remain is a Grand Marshall in which Gavril was testing the engine.

    This was meant just as practice but I think it turned out ok, therefore I'm uploading it, hope you enjoy :)

      thanks :) unfortunately, although you could just make awd work with jbeam, when it comes the physical size of the components it would be pretty much imposible to fit awd in a v12 grand marshall without completely transforming the whole car... and i dont like when the models don't match the jbeam. it could be done but im already working on something else

    Listen... its great, it really is but you are not stopping!!!!
    I wanna see a 90s style nav unit instead of normal a/c and radio controls
    I wanna see steering wheel mounted controls for radio, cruise and tiptronic controls...
    I wanna see a 6 speed CONSOLE MOUNTED tiptronic transmission...
    I wanna digital readouts and a full on light it up digital display for different readouts, a bit like the bitron b2 but more period correct for this car and i would like to see rear tv screens and loads more buttons that erm... do stuff

    i love the Quad-turbo V12. It just has so much torque to play with!
    and gives nice MPG too :P
    Also, its engine cover reminds me of a Rolls Royce (it looks quite similar). maybe it's just a coincidence.

    I previously rated this mod 4 stars due to the absence of rear quarter glass. Now that that's been added, along with an entire new engine and weight improvements, I can safely say this mod is worthy of a 5-star rating. Great work!
