    Yep, the 2.7 V6 could be put in the 'old' Pessima and the said 3.0 V6 could be put in the 'new' Pessima. Hadn't thought about separating the two V6s into one for each generation but it is the most logical thing to do, since the 'new' Pessima is quite a bit larger and heavier.

    Wouldn't say this about the wagon at least. The ETK 800-Series and the Bruckell LeGran Wagon are very different from each other so a Pessima Wagon, with the oriental flavor of the Sedan on which it would be based, would clearly add diversity.

    Yeah, you really feel it especially on an auto pessima it just is underpowered for the car. it takes ages to accelerate it from stop to atleast 30 mph while cruising normal which shouldnt be a problem for a car about 1500kg powered by a what should be a beefy V6 for smooth cruising and power delivery all across the rpm band

    I think most of that is likely tbh.

    I'm expecting this to be very similar to the LeGran remaster; including the taxi and rally versions (The Pessima has just as much IRL justification for AWD as the LeGran had).

    Diesels probably won't be included since overall that omission seems to be a running theme with cars in game built before 2010... We can hope though...

    The wagon is where I depart from those expectations though. While a wagon is possible, a lift back is more interesting and just as justifiable (as Capt'n Zoll posted about the other day). Best case scenario would be both body styles, but I would be shocked to see that much recources invested into it.

    Tbh, with a logical exception, I haven't noticed any weak spots in the "2.7 V6/4-Speed Auto" combination for the 'new' Pessima. Yes, it naturally is slower than the "2.7 V6/V6 5-Speed Manual" combo but it too is fairly powerful throughout the rev range.
    The only logical exception is when cruising on 4th gear and want to accelerate full throttle. The 4-Speed Auto dulls the experience down a bit in this case due to its slow reaction to the full-throttle signal. It takes a while to downshift.
    Oh well, it could be worse: it could be the Bruckell 136hp/225nm "3.3 V6/3-Speed Auto" combo having to move the ~1440kg LeGran or, even worse, the ~1600kg Wendover! :p
    But yeah, the 2.7 V6 would certainly have easier work to do in the smaller and lighter 'old' Pessima.

    That could be a great opportunity to begin that "dieselification" !:)

    A beefier V6 for the Pessima makes a lot of sense to me, I know Toyota has a line of 3L-3.5L V6s (the MZ and GR) they use in the Siennas and top trims of some sedans and SUVs, and they make a solid 250-300 horsepower.

    Considering we're getting that race-spec'd variant, I'm sure there will be an appropriately angry powerplant to go with it.

    Yeah right, as i said it would make sense to age up the 2.7 a bit and throw it in the 1st gen and give the 2nd gen a worked up 3.0 V6 to match with the larger specs of the car and keep up with the times

    Interestingly in BTCC/Super Touring the rules (which the racing config seems to based off especially a mix of the Primera and Accord) limit engines to 2.0L, so that likely means we will get a true racing version of the I4, rather than the V6

    I wouldn't mind seeing a racing version of the V6, i just hope they make it a high revving N/A engine instead of lazily slapping a turbo on it

    We dont know if they are going according to the btcc rules, so a better v6 isnt out of the question. However a more powerful 2l would be good to see.

    The 3.0/3.5l V6s could also power an Ibishu Minivan, if it ever comes!
    And the Bruckell 3.3/3.8 V6s and the 4.4 V8 could power a duo of Bruckell/Soliad Minivans! :cool:
    --- Post updated ---
    A turbo V6 (especially a single-turbo V6) would be nice since it's not represented in BeamNG yet! But yeah, since we're talking about a race car, a high-revving NA V6 would be better, since it isn't yet represented in BeamNG either!

    It very likely will be an i4, although there were V6 BTCC cars (notably the Mondeo)

    High revving N/A engines in general aren't well represented in game, as far as I know the only ones are the Bolide V8 and the old Pigeon 600cc bike engine (which was removed)

    Aight, so here’s all of this threads requests for the pessima as far as I remember:
    • High revving NA v6
    • Diesel engines
    • Race parts in general
    • Lots of new configs
    • Wagon body
    • Lift back body
    There’s probably more, but even this is a lot.
