Members Choice XXIII Pack!

Like buses, two vehicle packs are coming out at once this time around! The 8th Gold Member Pack and the 23rd Members Choice Pack. These packs feature vehicles belonging to and those that have been chosen by members of the community, respectively.

Gold Members VIII Pack

  • 2000 BWL E30 2.9d SE:

    Putting a diesel engine in a refined executive saloon may have been seen as sacrilegious only a decade prior. But by the turn of the century, the engines were getting more refined. With plenty of torque and improved MPG, they continued to win fans for years to come.

  • 1994 Jeppi Chalakee 4.0 Sport 4x4:

    This generation was more compact than its predecessor but offered improvements in many areas. The chunky American styling will be a tempting prospect for those looking for something a bit different.

  • 1983 Prosher Typ 92 2.0 Lux:

    Created originally as part of a joint project between two major German marques, this model made an affordable entry into the illustrious brand at a fraction of the cost.

  • 1999 Nesson Slither 2.0 R Aero:

    Whilst only sold new in Japan, previous domestic models assured there was plenty of demand back in the UK. The R Aero version furthered its sporting credentials as it fully embraced the now maturing JDM scene.

The following vehicles were also updated:

  • Minor revisions to 1988 Prosher Typ 94 2.5 Turbo.
  • Added additional member owned picture for 2000 Matsurza SP-5 1.8i S.

Members Choice XXIII Pack

  • 2000 Crystal PG Carousel 2.4:

    Another Y2K era, retro throwback. This time, more unusually, the styling is adorning a practical family 'wagon. Loved and derided in equal measure, it is nonetheless pretty unique and unlike many other controversial designs, its retro looks haven't dated beyond the obvious.

  • 1999 Prosher Typ 91 3.6 CG3:

    Preparing for the 21st century, the classic design was sharpened up for the new millennium. This one is one of the lightweight variants, but don't worry, the fried-egg headlights survived.

  • 1982 Lancrossi OCG 2.0 Stradale:

    Somehow looking even more bonkers than its sport car like predecessor, and just before the 4WD revolution, the rally version of this car became the final rear wheel drive car to win the World Rally Championship.

  • 1961 Jacquard Mark-E 3.8 OTS:

    Regarded by some as one of the most beautiful cars ever made, this car certainly made waves when it launched in the early 1960s and it didn't stop there. It remained relevant past its replacement and even found a new cultural purpose in the late 90s. Shagadelic baby, yeah!

  • 1980 Fitalia ABF 0.65 De Ville:

    (Bonus) Created by the Italians as a replacement for its 1950s predecessor and then lovingly adopted as a people's car in Poland where it earnt the nickname "Maluch". It stayed in production for an impressive 28 years.

Shop Page Revisions!

Following feedback, the shop has now been updated to help lay out membership options and merchandise in a clearer manner!

Discord Moderator Update

Following the recent Discord moderator recruitment round, which made use of a new “Vacancies” area on the website, I’d like to welcome two new Discord moderators: jm930 & leond__!

Many thanks to everyone who applied. There were far more applicants than I expected and I am very grateful to everyone who offered - thank you!

I would also like to extend a big thank you to outrun1986, for their efforts in moderating the server and all their many other efforts to date.

Development Roadmap Task Count

To aid transparency, and to show how much work is planned and indeed logged, I now plan to periodically update an outstanding task count on the development roadmap page:

This also gives an incredibly simplified metric to show whether the work coming in is greater than the work going out. “Spoiler alert” – it is, with it currently sitting at about 650 tasks.
