The automotive A-Z of vehicles, recreated in BeamNG via Automation
After much work and a lot of fact checking, I have finally managed to create enough vehicles to release this high detail, very realistic and near statistically exact automation replica package.
All figures including power output, engine size and gear ratios are as close to accurate as I could make them.
Featuring detachable parts:
Audi Nanuk (concept)
This perhaps lesser known concept is Audi's idea of an off-roading / rallying super-car. The Audi Nanuk is the result of what happens when engineers go mad i.e. a 5.0 litre twin turbo V10 diesel off-roading supercar with 544hp and 1000lb-ft of torque. The coupe body and I think rather fetching headlights also make certain that this thing looks good.
Aston-Martin DB11 and DB11 AMR
Power, prestige and beauty seamlessly transferred into the modern age. The Aston-Martin DB11 is the ultimate way to cruise in style, on a motorway/highway/autobahn or a country road. The DB11 has a twin turbo AMG sourced V8 with 504hp and a rear wheel drive configuration.
The DB11 AMR however uses Aston's very own 5.2 litre twin turbo V12 for oomph, providing 630hp to the slightly fatter rear wheels, along with minor suspension tweaks to make this DB11 ever so slightly more fun.
BMW M5 and 530i
The exec express. The BMW 5 series is the do it all car; from family car to uber saloon, the 5 does it all. 2 states of tune are shown in this package, the 530i 4 cylinder turbo petrol with 250hp and rear wheel drive and the M5 with a 4.4 litre twin turbo V8 producing 600hp and a clever AWD system to keep it all in check.
The Land Rover Range Rover
Go anywhere in comfort and style, up until it gets a tad too old and it stops being stylish comfortable and able to go. Anywhere. However whilst its still working, the range rover provides a sense of class as well as an ability to do pretty much anything you'd need it to. From mountain climbing to cruising the Range Rover does it all...except driving fast. power comes courtesy of a twin turbo 3.0 litre diesel producing 330hp and 600lb-ft of torque at low rpms to make it better off the beaten trail.
The Land Rover Series II (Convertible / Hard-top / Pick-up)
The first Rover with offroading in mind. The Series II was reportedly derived after the founder of Rover marvelled at his neighbors use of this thing called a Jeep to do work around they're yard, and hence the Land-Rover was born! The precursor of the Range Rover above, the Series II is one of the original Land-Rovers built simply for utility and not much else. power is provided by what at the time was considered high tech: a 2.25 litre inline 4 cylinder petrol with 80hp and not that much torque. But the Land-Rover is light so it doesn't need much.
Engine: 2.25 litre i4
Car class: Classic off-roader
The Porsche 911 2.7 RS
Arguably one of the best and most collectible 911's ever made. The Porsche 911 2.7 RS was a pure drivers car providing astonishing performance and handling at the time. The classic rear engine 911 layout is used along with a ductail spoiler (not replicated) and the introduction of a red on white paint scheme and the famous fuchs wheels. with 210hp and a 950kg kerb weight the 911 2.7 RS will propel itself to 60 in under 6.0 seconds!
The Porsche 911 Carrera S (1975)
The 1975 Porsche 911 was a naturally aspirated feather weight vehicle with little power in comparison to modern cars. Its weight is also much lower than that of a modern car meaning that it has an admirable power to weight ratio. This means that the car takes full advantage of the power and torque that it has and will make you want to drive (and crash) it more. (Warning it likes to spin).
The Ascari KZ1
The Ascari KZ1 was a textbook supercar built by British company Ascari, owned by a Dutch business man, in 2004. The car used an S62 BMW V8 similar to that found in the E92 M3 only modified to produce more power. The car was light weight at 1250kg and had a manual transmission. Every car was hand built and take days to craft. The company folded in 2010 after producing its final roadcar the A10.
The BMW 8 series was a luxury coupe designed to attract wealthy luxury car buyers to the BMW brand. It was not a replacement for the 6 series of the time and was supposed to be the very best BMW could offer. There were multiple variants including the 840CI which had a 4.2 litre V8 and the 850 CI which had a V12. The 850CSI however was tuned to be faster and harder with stiffened lowered suspension to improve cornering and more power. All variants were available with the option of a manual or automatic transmission.
Tesla Model S
The Tesla Model S caused quite the stir in the car industry and started a seismic shift in the direction of electrified transportation fueled by renewable energy. The car wowed with its insane technological features such as its autopilot system as well as its supercar shattering performance with the performance models. Perhaps the car to save the automotive industry?
The Jaguar I-Pace is something of a leap forwards for Jaguar (pun intended) as it now aspires to recreate itself as an all electric brand by the year 2023. The I-Pace is first on the agenda and is a direct result of the Tesla Model S (See above). The appeal of the I-Pace is the lack of any quality control issues and the hatch SUV/ desirable hatch SUV body shape and an outlandish eye catching design (I quite like it). The I-Pace may not beat the Tesla in all areas but its a fantastic first attempt.
Jaguar I-Pace eTROPHY
The I-Pace eTROPHY is involved in a one make racing series. This series is a support series to Formula E and involves the use of modified identical I-Paces being raced as a way of showing who is the best driver. I think its got the same motors as the regular car. Its just lightened.
The Mercedes S-Class
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is an evolutionary staple in the automotive industry, every new generation showcases new technologies that boggle and bewilder the mind. However the S-Class applies these technologies in such a way as to make them comforting, and allowing them to aid your experience. However I am unable to replicate the massaging system in the S-Class so all you need to know is; it drifts, it shifts and it'll turn into a million little bits.
Drivetrain: AWD 9 speed advanced automatic V8 Biturbo
The Audi A7 was designed to fill another niche market, namely people who wanted a luxurious saloon crossed with a sporty coupe. Thus the Audi A7 was born, sat between the A6 and A8. The car is now on its second generation and features an angular design with ever more complex headlights and taillights (the real car has animated ight sequences).
Peugeot 205 RX
(I'll make a GTI soon)
The Peugeot 205 is a car I know nothing about apart from its apparent fame and the popularity of many of its variants including the GTi. The car is an icon with its short boxy styling, small black panels on the C pillar, easily recognisable front fascia and perky engines making it a favorite amongst city dwellers, tuners and ricers alike. The model replicated here was a suggestion hence why its not a full blown GTi and was only sold in the UK and Spain.

Enjoy! - Please tell me how I can improve.
