    changing the subject ... Almost all the car manufacturers in Beamng have a well-defined history on their career, Gavril was in business until the early 2000s, Ibishu also, and so the other manufacturers ... You do not find that there is a strong gap, of at least two vehicles as far as the etk is concerned, since many years have passed between the I series and the 800 / K series? I expect more etk models in the next updates, you?

    Yeah and also a more modern 4 door sedan, like in the same range of years as the 800 and k series

    I don't thing Gavril went out of business in the 2000s as there is still a Gavril dealer in business. Still there is no sign of a modern Gavril yet. I'm hopeful for a modern Gavril and Bruckell.


    Obviously the devs focus should be on filling important Niches like a Modern euro truck and van.




    I just realized there is no official vehicle with Torsion bar suspension.

    The LeGran has a torsion-beam in the rear.

    I should have mentioned Torsion bar front suspension, Plus the Le Gran has beam Axle rear suspension with a panhard rod.

    Torsion bars are used on the front and back of Piccolina, and the LeGran has a torsion-beam aka twist-beam aka torsion-bar suspension. A torsion-beam uses a flexible unpowered rod connecting the two wheels. A beam axle is another name for a solid live axle, used on cars like the D-Series, Barstow, Moonhawk, and all the other American vehicles.

    Oh I forgot about the Autobello. huh. I was mostly referring to the layouts of the 60's and 70's Mopars (The Dodge coronet exists I suppose).

    Or really more modern cars in general - all the American cars are older than the Roamer, at like 17 years old... at least the Europeans and Japanese get a new car :D

    That would be nice but aside from giving the existing gavrils (specifically the d-series YET another config to the already great wall of d-series configs) a modern facelift, but I dunno about the grand marshal, that might require a new body outright probably the same with the roamer since both those bodies would be really dated in a modern design sense. On the topic of the legran wagon, I know its possible to do a transversally mounted engine and still be all wheel drive but here's a thought on the chassis sub-subject and I know its the case of the eagle since they used a jeep's drivetrain...hopper drivetrain maybe? It's really hard to speculate much on a car config that supposedly awd when you know the car is unibody when the other vehicle drivetrain's are for body on frame cars with so little info, but that is my best guess which is so wrong since Bruckell and Ibishu are two entirely different companies from different regions but its just a shot in the dark.

    Although there are some interesting options for the mystery Bruckell's drivetrain, I doubt we will see anything too weird with it (relatively speaking, since the vehicle itself is already rather strange). The Pontiac 6000 (GM A-Body platform, closest thing IRL to the LeGran) was offered with AWD. Throw on a big lift kit to that and we have this new LeGran derivative. This is a lot less work and more sensible than any alternative I can think of.

    Possible its just a Lifted FWD wagon ?

    OR like a Pessima AWD with lifted springs.


    Mind you a AWD wendova With 5 speed super charge. Those good looks ( i love the way it looks now shoot me ;) ) And a G920 yes sign me up


    Time will tell.

    Just because something doesn't appear in-game, doesn't mean it can't exist canonically. By that measure, you could also argue that bugs, the Black Sea, and New Wave religion don't exist in the Beam-verse. :p

    About the legran wagon, if it wasn't much to talk about they probably wouldn't have deleted the pic of it right after posting. I'm assuming it's official since the game literally doesn't have any older wagon at all.

    Yes and no. If you go to the configs, you will find 4 and 6 cyl models. 4 cyl = 854, 6 cyl = 856
