    Nah, ETK isn't a direct copy of anything. Aston Martin had the V12 Vantage up to 2018. The Vantage was a small car.

    It's entirely realistic, especially if it's smaller displacement with turbos.

    the ETK k series in no way competes with the Aston Martin vantage. It’s more like a 3 series coupe than anything.

    The only thing is that real life equivalents to the K Series have Inline 4's as the base engine and inline sixes, V6's, or V8's as top spec engines. A V12 would probably be a class above vehicles like the K Series.

    A V12 would make sense for a luxury limousine like the BMW 7 Series or S Class Mercedes or a GT car like the BMW 8 Series from the 90's (we don't have many ETK vehicles that bridge the age gap between the I series and the 800/K Series).

    blah, blah BeamNG isn't in our universe so doesn't have to exactly follow real car trends blah.

    Luckily we don't have to care about what exactly real world car makes did or didn't do :)

    Over thinking speculation :
    Oh okay so it's totally possible to have a Bugatti engine is this small sport car ! ;)

    (This also means that devs can make original chooses in terms of design and engines)

    how to racecar: large engine + small car

    ontopic: the etks could still use something design wise to tie the brand together somewhat, like where did the ''not a bmw grille'' originate from?

    Its always cool to see these, some of the backround and details that went into projects. Seeing the expanded version of West Coast was awesome. Maybe someday it can happen

    I doubt it, the video appears to be quite old, and the 0.21 improvements removed the required blocked roads and turned them into tunnels.

    Looks interesting that there is only the current map marked like a square in the greenish color. Maybe more is still planned...

    Thank you sir. People seem to forget the BeamNG universe is separate from our own.

    I just noticed that the Wigeon has these occupant load sliders in the Tuning menu, as well as sandbag weights for the trunk in the parts menu. No other vehicle has them at the moment (including the pigeon). Speculating: Perhaps more vehicles will be getting these in future updates?

    I don't recall seeing them mentioned around the update buzz, but having driven a full car's worth of chunky passengers and heavy luggage around I can definitely say that those sorts of masses affect your average car's handling, which this game is perfect for demonstrating. So I am hoping for more of this to be added.

    Since these are light 3 wheelers it was necessary to add weight.

    Working windscreen wipers would be a pretty cool idea, seeing as the new Widgeon has such a massive one
