    i'm still sticking with the theory of it being a grand marshal successor, the body resemblance to the omega is just too damn close.
    considering how frequently US manufacturers shuffled through names, it's not inconcievable for it to be an as-of-yet unseen gavril trim name. Alternatively, it could also be a burnside.

    At least we know that it is rear-wheel-drive (RWD) drivetrain, and that (in my humble opinion) should mean that there will be no front-wheel-drive (FWD). At best, RWD and AWD.

    Regarding the configurations - I don't really see it as a taxi (it could be, if it looked much older), unless it is in the style of German taxis that have a lot of new Mercedes Benzs in their fleet.

    Besides that, it is still too difficult to know what it is. We do know that it is RWD and a typical full-size sedan - it could be Korean, German, American, Italian, Japanese, etc. RWD and a full-size sedan still doesn't narrow the options.

    He's fooling you guys. I've snuck into his house and he was sitting there playing Beam... :confused:

    I think the sounds are great as they are, especially the engine sounds. Even if some gasoline Inline-4 powered cars (like the Hirochi Sunburst and the 4-cylinder modern ETKs) seem to sound older than they actually are.
    As for the size, I'd like to see the dimensions of each car written in its infobox.
    I'd also like to see the various different engines in a car have different physical sizes as well, instead of only being defined by their weight, their displacement and their power/torque curves. For example, the two Inline-4s and the two V6s of the LeGran seem to have exactly the same physical dimensions, even if they have different displacements (2.2 vs 2.5 Inline-4, 3.3 vs 3.8 V6). Same goes for the 2.4 and 3.0 Inline-6s of the ETK I-Series and the Flat-4 engines of the Autobello Piccolina (1.1 vs 1.3 vs 1.5 F4) and the Hirochi SBR4 (2.0 vs 2.5 F4).
    And this is even more apparent in the V8 engine choices for the Gavril vehicles because the displacement differences are greater between each other (4.5 V8, 291ci FleetPower V8, 313ci TurboFleet V8, 5.5 V8, 353ci SuperThrust V8, 6.0 Turbodiesel V8, 6.9 V8, 423ci MegaThrust/UltraThrust V8). It can't be logical for the 6.9/423ci V8 engines to be the same physical size as any smaller V8 engine below them.
    I was reading the Devblog about the modular meshes of the Cherrier FCV engines and thought "Trimming or extending the mesh to make either a 3-cylinder or a 5-cylinder out of a 4-cylinder is great but what happens when we have engines with the same amount of cylinders but with different displacements?".
    Something to think about.

    i4, i6, v8, and perhaps a v10?

    If it is American, it could very well be a Taxi too, with steel wheels and a ram bar up front! And (why not) a separating panel behind the front seats!

    The car seems to be a high end vehicle judging by the size and design, meaning it most likely as more complicated engineering and electronics, which, if broken, would be expensive to replace. That, coupled with the FR layout that leaves less cabin room and is less fuel efficient, would make it a very surprising choice for a fleet vehicle.

    An Inline-4 is out of the question in my book.
    I'd say a V6 and some V8s, both NA and Supercharged, are certain for this car. And since the car seems fairly new chronologically, I also expect the engines to be coupled to a modern multi-speed automatic transmission.

    So, basically the engines from a Dodge Charger. The displacements would probably be different as to not get some sort of infringement, but yeah. I think it would be like a 3.7 V6, 5.3 V8, and a 6.0 V8 and a 6.3 V8 supercharged.

    Quite possibly!
    But I'd say the displacements of the two largest engines could also be reversed, just like in the Charger (6.3 NA and 6.0 Supercharged in the BeamNG car, 6.4/392ci NA and 6.2 Supercharged in the Charger)!
    But they also could be a bit larger than that: 6.6l/400ci for the NA V8, 6.3l/384ci for the Supercharged V8! :cool:

    Well TDK did say that they are working on a new sound system for engine sounds and stuff that's supposed to be beyond that of Forza Horizon 5... so I wonder what it will bring

    ... and if it has an hybrid powertrain, it could have an I4 or a V6 :p

    Btw, in my opinion, an I4, even without hybridation is possible (maybe not if it's an American car), like a 2.0 turbo and 275hp

    The recent post on development screenshots simply referring to the car as "[redacted]"

    About the sounds what i meant is like: the barstow and moonhawk inline engine 6 has a very "new" sound for the engine q is e
    There could also be sounds of an I6 with direct exhaust and engines in malfunction and bad conditions but now one thing I think would be cool but it's already a lot of mine is to have different sounds of engines with the same amount of cylinders but with different sounds according to the nationality of the engine

    I hope they sound realistic, just like they do now.
    --- Post updated ---
    A V6 Hybrid could be very interesting for this car if it's American.
    The Inline-4 Hybrid powertrain could be used for a different car. Let's say a Vivace 200h, with the 1.6l, 160hp Inline-4 Turbo coupled to a 40hp electric motor and batteries large enough for true Plug-In Hybrid/Electric mobility.
    Hell, hybridization could also be applied to the 2.5 Inline-5, for making a crazy "Vivace S 510Q Arsenic Hybride" version, equipped with a 100hp electric motor or even two 50hp electric motors, one on each axle! :cool:
    And why not step it up even more and couple the Inline-5 to two 100hp motors, one on each axle, for making a Vivace S 610Q Arsenic Hybride? :rolleyes::cool:

    ...am i just misresding your post or something? Because the 90s Pessima, LeGran and Wendover all have V6s, and multiple cars in the game have superchargers...

    Well engine sounds are more so just placeholder samples anyway, the only car that has proper unique sounds has to be the FCV platform atm.

    I'd say all cars sound properly realistic, I don't find any reason for the sounds to be changed. Well, except for the Hirochi Sunburst and the modern ETKs with the gas 4-cylinder, these cars could have more refined 4-cylinder sounds! But yeah, can't find a reason for the rest of them why they don't sound realistic!
