    the exhausts really confuse me, but their placement seems like they're trying to put equal-length headers on it and the reason why the exhausts exit almost straight down is bc they're trying to minimize space wasted. it could be a V10 with the last cylinder actually behind where the manifold pipes come together near the wheel arch.

    That list has been discussed to death... It's a collection of abandoned concepts which are nearly 10 years old, names mentioned in passing and since forgetten about, and some stuff with zero references outside that list.

    The Fulmine is one of the few that ever had any "official" discussion about it; it was a vintage Italian grand tourer which was abandoned while still in the concept stage. While the team is free to recycle the name as they wish; that wouldn't really fit right with me personally. Taking arguably the most well known abandoned vehicle concept, which was one that we still could really use in game, and recycling the name for an unrelated project nearly 10 years later would be really weird.

    It will definitely be completely undrivable and maybe hard to drive even with ESC

    So that wasn’t just me? Good to hear. Yeah, it would be great to be able to run more than two cars without a serious frame rate drop again…

    AMD in general is kinda broken rn, especially on the GPU side where i only get like 60-80% usage even on max settings, which would be fine if the game didn't struggle to maintain 60 if i didnt turn shadows off (which seem to be the main fps killer atm)

    Hope the Sunburst gets the Flat engines!! ;)

    'Fulmine' is Italian for 'Lightning'. Personally, the 'Fulmine' name makes me thinking of a car that rips through the air and tears it apart while doing 300km/h+. High horsepower Grand Tourers can certainly do this but Supercars are those that fit this description perfectly because, apart from being good in handling, they are also designed to be aerodynamic and, well, rip through the air. Just like a lightning does!
    So I definitely want the new Civetta to be called the 'Fulmine'. It will also be great company for the Bolide, which by itself is another natural phenomenon involving heat and light! ;)
    --- Post updated ---
    It's a modern Supercar, so I believe it will be easy to drive even without ESC. Don't base your judge on your experience with the Bolide, that car belongs in a different era. ;)

    Plus, while I'm on the subject of the Bolide, I find the Bolide to have quite neutral handling characteristics now. Especially the Naturally Aspirated 350 and 390 GT versions.

    That largely depends on what your understanding of "easy" is. It's certainly not a death trap, but you still need lots of skill if you want to master it without aids.

    Good, I can pretend to be a rich kid who tries to show off and crashes their expensive new car at the exit of a car show. Amazing!

    I think it will be. It's a modern Supercar after all. ;)

    Anyone want to parse what Diamondback just posted in the dev section? A dynamic RPM gauge with a redline based on engine temperature?

    Maybe if u crash the new car it will go into a sort of "crawl mode", where it limits speed and engine RPM so it doesn't self-destruct as quickly?

    So clearly it's in a state where it can actually be driven, and somewhat reflects the desired driving characteristics of a finished version. I'm betting on late May-early June, and I'm actually excited for it.

    I don't think enough people realize that BeamNG's cars don't exactly capture the essence of real-life cars, at least styling wise, because they aren't real cars, they are their own unique concepts so of course they look a bit "off" if you compare them to their real (non-)counterparts. If the Bolide were real, nobody would question it, and then when the BeamNG devs made the Ferrari 308, you would complain that it doesn't capture that iconic Bolide spirit

    True BUT if they where real most i will Buy if they where real. Like a Blurbuck. Bastion. And others. :)


    Also on topic. What OTHER goodies do you think we will get. Other then Covet and Supercar.

    I think some more skins and so on :)

    I think Mid June to Mid July.

    I think best shot is late June like last year. I know its abit of time. BUT considering its been 5 mouths. I think 3-6 more weeks is not bad :)


    But if sooner yay.

    if later you cant rush art ( even if am going insane Due to IRL harships lol )

    Yeah definitely, it looks like there was a finished covet posted in Community Screenshots yesterday, the new civetta has had its handling characteristics revealed, and there seems to be alot of new content pumped into the teasers

    Its like when you hint print and then all the copies come out at once, but with teasers!
    --- Post updated ---
    Also for those who didnt catch this in the community screenshots

    Anyone with photoshop able to brighten it up?
