    I'm surprised no-one else has mentioned the "S2R" adaptive coilovers for the SBR.
    they first appeared in 0.21, at the same time as the adaptive parts on the vivace and modern etks, (the 800's were removed in an 0.21 hotfix)
    This is suggesting some sort of more extreme trim level, perhaps digging at the porsche inspiration with a GT3/GT2 RS style trim?I've always found it quite bizzare that the SBR's configs jump straight from oem trims to a full-on hillclimb spec, with no trackday, race, or even street tuned configs in-between.

    then again, considering nothing was added in 0.22, the other new content for the SBR might still be a long way off, and they just made all of the adaptive suspension parts all at once.

    Isn`t Hillclimb already supposed to be a racecar? It has skins and everything...

    For time trials yes, not for racing against other hillclimb cars.

    it is a racecar, but near every other car has intermediate trims, for less heavily compromised race cars. things like the sunburst track, the etkc and vivace 310 trackday, etc.

    Hillclimb racing cars in Beam are meant for trials. The proper real life hillclimb superbuilds are more "similiar" to gt3 or gt4 builds and in game they could use the same parts.

    But let's say there are many categories of hillclimb racing.

    Proper hillclimb car is similar to anything and nothing (if we speaking about Pikes Peak). There are practically no rules so as long it have engine and wheels it is true hillclimb car.

    The SBR feels due for another minor remaster. Maybe another facelift and/or some new model years? It doesn't need much, but it does feel underutilized in its current form. Maybe a config for a hybrid drivetrain testing platform used by Hirochi?

    The entire trim level/facelift selection needs to be redone. Currently the factory offerings are just a mess, it just has 2013-2020 model years for everything. It probably is realistic to have a lengthy model year run without major visual changes, like the 370Z/R35, but the introduction of the eSBR kind of ruins that. We could see a 2020 ICE facelift to go with the eSBR introduction, or call all the eSBR trims concept/test beds since they are kinda crazy (especially the eSBR 800).

    There's a ton of interesting possible configs too. There are so many crazy Porsche and R35 builds IRL that there's no shortage of places to draw inspiration.
    Drag /top speed builds? Track cars? There's plenty of real and insane GTR's built for those
    Police spec? There are community relations R35 PD cars out there, so it isn't that big of a stretch to give us an interceptor
    Rally? There are modern Porsche rally cars, so why not an SBR?
    Crazy factory trim levels? Take some inspiration from Nismo and give Hirochi their own counterpart to Gavril RS and Ibishu GTz
    Custom cars? Again, there's a lot of crazy Porsche and R35 builds out there, Turbo Rabbit and Nomi could both get some more crazy kits for her (Yes I know she already has flares and hillclimb aero, but there are so many more possibilities)

    If the cars under the tarps around the maps are teasing the next car, it seems to be something rear engine and a classic similar to the Citroën ds

    They are scattered around East Coast and Utah, and I think there might be a few on Italy and West Coast.

    The cars under tarps aren't teasing any new cars, if you look in the files the models are called
    deal_covered_car_sunburst_1.dae
    deal_covered_car_sunburst_2.dae
    deal_covered_car_roamer_1.dae

    The yellow car was easily identifiable as a Sunburst from the beginning because of the Sunburst front bumper.
    Edit: Thanks @ILoveDeloreans for my 350th agree!

    That's not entirely true. Hillclimb has many categories and strict regulations/rules. Check HSA or FIA.

    HSA categories:
    http://speed.hillclimbandsprint.co.uk/classes.asp

    Performance groups by FIA:
    https://www.fia.com/performance-factor

    My point is that the top-end versions over 2000cc are basically lmp cars, therefore gt1-2 with different configurations. Same with other versions that could use superbuild parts from gt 3 or gt 4 for a hillclimb build.

    Yessss! ;-D
    And eventually it got choked on one road, finishing its era...
    --- Post updated ---
    I don't really mind about metric gauges since I've learned both number scales but I really want diesel gauges to be added, because the stock 6.0 diesel V8 is very low-revving, it can't even reach the ~4800rpm a stock 6.9 423 gas V8 can!
    --- Post updated ---
    I just hope it gets a Flat-6! The 2.5 Flat-4, although an extremely competent powerplant, has its limits after some time! After all, the Flat-6 configuration is a niche to be filled!

    We already got a Roamer remaster, but they could be teasing it for those cars in the future?
