    Had a sketch yesterday, now I've started putting polies in place. For now it's a mid-engine RWD I4... mounted at an angle under the driver's seat. Lets the driver sit quite far forward so it should be able to seat 7 (well, 6 normal size people plus a midget)

    I had to put wide fenders on cause there was no legroom without the wheels mounted farther out.

    I can't get the blender exporter to work today or I'd try to get a shot of it in-game with the steel wheels the base model will come with.

    In the bottom Blender window make sure the "Vertex colors" is on, not just a single X in the box.

    Looks like a nice start... Scary, the rear end actually looks a bit similar to what I'm working on. :)

    Figured out the exporter, so I can get it ingame now (had to map a texture & UV coordinates to every material). I'm not really liking the headlights so I may look into some sort of design change there.

    Argh, didn't get a chance to do anything else on the model today but I did get the first draft of the company badge done (very important of course)

    Wow, that's a nice badge. How about making the arrow red or something to stick out?

    Long time without an update, well, I was extremely busy with school. Finally got a couple moments to tweak this. Hope the new front doesn't look quite as puffy. I think the hood needs changes still.

    More design work has been done "under the hood", I think I have a fair idea of the suspension and seating setup now.

    I got inspired by the side of an Acura TL, I'll be putting doorhandles on that groove.

    Edit: Further progress on the front, tried to separate the doors + windows somewhat.
