    That makes sense. I remember one of the devs addressing the V10 and explaining that it's there because it was a part of the sound library they've got with FMOD.

    It's been there for ages, so sadly it's old news... If I remember right, it's more of a prequel really... an early concept for a sequel to "Senseless Destruction" That never finished it's development. There's also another JRI interesting scenario in there somewhere, in the shape of a bus safari tour...

    EDIT: To clarify: These have been in game for years, so they're more likely to be abandoned concepts that leaked, than anything that would ever be released. They've most likely already served their purpose as a test for some idea or proof of concept, or something.

    I think it's a post-facelift with a bumper from an older car stuck on it, the actual grille part resembles a 1989-1996 Cutlass Ciera

    That's definitely a Moonhawk bumper on the pink sedan. What's interesting is that the turn signals have been removed. I wonder if that's going to be an option for the Moonhawk as well. The rear bumper on the wagon also looks like it was borrowed from another car.

    The fender-mounted turn signals are still on the wagon at least, which is unusual for a derby car. I think those should be stripped out before they get released.

    I'm going to take these things everywhere. To the Derby Arenas. To the concrete pads and tracks at the Industrial Site. To the figure 8 courses at Hirochi Raceway and WCUSA. Into traffic on ECUSA. All over Gridmap. Official derby configurations like these are something that's been missing from BeamNG for a long time.

    Maybe we’re getting pre and post facelift? They did it for the D series

    Could’ve added the moonhawk bumper just for the derby config, I suppose.

    Looking at the particulars of the derby bits in the teaser:

    2x new skins for the LeGran
    Moonhawk steel bumper and pointy welded front bumpers (looks like an older bumper on the back of the wagon as well)
    New to game fascia
    Bits to bolt the hood shut
    Window bars (this looks like just vertical bars opposed to a steel mesh or plate of plexiglass... This seems like an odd choice, no?)
    Some sort of upright headers on the orange car

    Not seen:
    The team could have a lot of fun with the interiors on these, hopefully it got a lot of attention.
    Fuel cell
    Roof mounted number plate
    As YellowRusty already pointed out, the orange car has turn signals that need to be deleted

    Updated my update expectations post

    Why would the derby car need turn signals to be removed?

    Glass bits in a demo derby are a bad idea

    Edit: Not my local track, but here's a random set of prep rules. This track actually allows a really wide array of cars compared to my local track.

    Looks like my wild guess about a new fascia was correct! And also with these new bumers it's looking much more like an Oldsmobile, also speaking of that, there was definitely some inspiration from the Oldsfullsize mod judging by the derby paintjob and the welded hood. I'll DEFINITELY swap all of these derby parts on my crazy Mad Max like configs, this is so cool!

    It's something of a safety thing - lights and their associated wiring are an unnecessary safety hazard in the event of a fuel spill. Glass used to be part of the reason they were disallowed, but that's less of a problem for certain eras of car.

    And it's good to remove them for another reason - parts at the vulnerable corners of a car are often in high demand at wrecking yards as people patch up minor fender benders. Selling whatever you don't need as part of the demolition derby prep process helps keep costs down.

    Plot twist: The Devs sometimes look at Update Speculation for ideas :p

    Anyways, I've always kinda loved having derby configs, so this is amazing!

    I do like this one! Seems to be in good condition.
    Iam just happy we get an old wagon, and which game give you tons of shitboxes nowadays...
    Prefer this over a supercar any day!

    At the back of my mind something tells me that the Moonhawk might be getting involved with this update (The bumper on the pink LeGran) It would be interesting to see them rework the Moonhawk as well to complete the Bruckell lineup for this update, but I highly doubt it

    I expect that thing to be a multi-part update like the D-Series since it's been in game without receiving much attention for so long. That's probably the only vehicle in game that has a chance to compete with the D-Series family for quantity of content.
