    I came up with two custom Bruckell vehicles that are comprised of various different mods. These two cars are based off a LeGran chassis, however are designed for the German market. They were co-designed with Germany's ETK brand, which partnered with Bruckell to sell their 2400i sedans in America. There were two separate trim levels, the Halsbrecher (Breakneck), and the Straßenkreuzer (Road Cruiser). Both vehicles have an interesting "lift-back" design which makes these cars stand out from the American "econo-box" version. The Straßenkreuzer is the lower trim level, offering basic amenities in the interior and nothing much else. It is front wheel drive, and has a 2.2 liter inline four engine offering 105 horsepower and 110 pound feet of tourque. It was only availible with a slushy 4 speed automatic transmission, however the lack of horsepower made the terrible gear changes almost unnoticeable. With all considered, it still sold very well in Germany, enticing many by it's sleek body shape, and aerodynamic front fascia. Because the Straßenkreuzer was an all around economy sub compact, engineers at ETK created a performance inspired vehicle based off of the Straßenkreuzer's body. Unlike its cousin, the Halsbrecher had street tuned suspension, ETK alloy wheels paired with sporty tires, is rear wheel drive, has a supercharged 3.8 liter V6 engine producing 250 horsepower and 270 pound feet of torque, and an American Muscle style appearance package. It only came with a five speed manual transmission, which wasn't a bad thing in 1990, however the vehicle didn't sell well, with only 800 units sold that year, and 127 units in 1991.

    Hear are some pictures below:
