Dude, just accept you were wrong. It’s a covet, not a GM, that’s that. Why not compare it to the covet? You’ll see.
its so the covet but i cant help but see it now
all i see is boxy small grand marshall now
someones gotta make it a mod now
I would like to do my best to inform people of the fact that all we’ve seen of the new Civetta is some concept drawings. I find it likely that there is a 95%-100% chance that it will come with 0.25. I wish people would stop being so hyped over something that is highly unlikely to come out for many months, and certainly not less than a normal update cycle after it’s first concept reveal to the public.
Not sure why everyone seems to think the Miramar is largely based on the Hakosuka when it's clearly based on the 410 Bluebird and S50 Skyline with small design inspiration from the Hakosuka. Still waiting for that long nose though
And the T50 Corona. But it's clearly got Hakosuka inspiration in it too, kinda like its spirit car in a way.
its been 5 months. cant be long now
Not sure if it's a good idea to share, hence the url has been marked over.
A little update on this, the certificate for this site was renewed yesterday in fact... Perhaps this is not just an old left over page.
Perhaps it will be released a long the update? Which means we may be close.
I don't know if it is, but it might just be one of those websites automatically created by bots to capitlise on some hype. Probably saw heaps of people on the internet saying "we want BeamNG merch" and a website was created by a bot setup by scammers to try to fish users in and take their email using that enter email section to sell to other people. The different fonts, vague wording and lack of any branding or imformation makes it seem like pretty untrustworthy. Theres a 99% chance that any official merch store is hosted under www.beamng.com. Unless the blurred out URL says www.beamng.com of course.
I found it myself and can tell you that it is still the beamng.com domain.
Huh, i guess they just kinda abondoned it. Weird how it has the log in with password, which isnt found anywhere else on the forums. All the fonts too. I tried every combination of merch and store i can think of but i guess its better hidden then that
It is definitely hosted by BeamNG, but I understand where you are coming from
The lack of wording and information is probably because it isn't finished yet.
It's a shopify shop, so that's why the font etc isn't what we are used to.
Yep, a slightly longer front end would be great for fitting a 2-liter Inline-6, like that of the Prince Skyline 2000 GT (S54) vs the basic 1500 Inline-4 (S50)!

What site is this? Is it for merch content?
The first photo of the Covet was also a concept/in-development photo. They wouldn't share anything unless it was already mostly finalized.
the initial covet teaser was the model of the rear quarterpanel, all they had to do since then to get it releasable is:
-finish modelling the new parts such as the group B body panels and engine bay (and an alternate bodystyle if that exists),
-adjust or remodel some existing parts, like the interior and regular engine bay,
-make new textures for basically everything
-then make new JBeams for just the new parts, and otherwise only do relatively minor tweaks to the existing ones.
to finish the civetta, they have to:
-finish designing, then fully model the body,
-design and model the whole interior completely from scratch
-design and model all the mechanical components completely from scratch
-then comes the easy part, modelling a chassis not only from scratch, but also one which is far lighter and stiffer than anything they've done so far, meanwhile probably stress-testing it to remain stable at much higher speeds than usual.
-then finally, very finely tuning the chassis and suspension setup handling, to make the new-found sim racing audience happy. similarly, this is going to be far more difficult than with any existing car, as it needs to be not only well balanced, like the SBR or bolide are aimed towards, but also with the precision of the vivace.
that being said, they have been keeping fairly strictly to the 2-cars per update schedule, and unless there's a secret sunburst remaster (or something) planned, it seems they are intending to release the civetta with this update.
I kinda thought it was more less a coincidence that they've done 2 vehicle related things per update, but that could be a thing they are doing. It's kinda hard to predict what this update will be, since we really only have the covet remaster confirmed. But I feel like they would release the Civetta as its own update. Say they release it along with a new aerodynamics model, and maybe a ETK K-series remaster (because imo a GT3 K-Series like the sketch esesel posted would be pretty cool along side a new hypercar)
I think if they were to release the civetta with the covet, we'd be waiting a little bit longer for the update. Which is a possibility, but I think they would prefer if this thread didn't lose its mind
Shopify is a commerce platform aka a platform to sell stuff, such as merch but technically anything.
Hear me out, I think the supercar is a terrible idea. The BeamNG engine is not adequate to simulate a vehicle with the required grip and stiffness, nor does the aero simulation scale well to high speeds. It may go fast but I can't shake this feeling it will end up handling like a D-Series. Probably best to play to the engine's strengths instead of giving the audience whatever they want
i sorta see where you're coming from, but if the beamteam can get a french hatchback to handle great, they can make a supercar handle great
we're getting an actual supercar for the first time, at least try to enjoy it
also please do not start drama over this
