    [​IMG] GWA Studebaker Veinte Victorias '15 [​IMG]


    Miami-based Gullwing America (GWA) has sent us details and images concerning their most recent project, a tribute to the Studebaker.

    The 1954 Studebaker managed to grab 20 wins at the Carrera Panamericana race and 9 of them were consecutive (1993 to 2001). To celebrate this achievement, GWA has decided to pay tribute to the vehicle by developing the Studebaker Veinte Victorias (meaning "20 wins") which will be limited to only 20 cars. 19 of them will wear a yellow livery while the remaining unit is going to have a black hue to serve as a pace car.

    The classic body has a modern touch while underneath the skin resides a V8 6.2-liter LS9 supercharged engine developing 620 bhp (462 kW) sent to the wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. The Studebaker Veinte Victorias benefits from a reinforced tubular chassis and has received Brembo HPK brakes stopping the GWA-developed 19-inch wheels shod in Bridgestone tires. Gullwing America says the vehicle will feature a special suspension and will come an exhaust system manufactured by Fabspeed.

    Details about pricing are not available at this point, but will be released in the future.

    The sooner that you cease giving a damn about what other people think around here, the more it will all make sense. :D
  5. ....The last Gullwing America car I saw here in the suggestions made me shiver with pain.

    This one isn't as bad, but it's only marginally less horrid. That front....gawd nooooo....

    When I become rich someday, remind me NEVER to order a car from these guys....

    I'd rather keep the number of internet enemies I have right now at something low, Princess StarLight's Brigade are already enough of it for me at this place.

  8. I wish this car would be paintable if it was added to the game, I think it would look sexy in silver.

    Well, at least GWA stayed faithful to Studebaker, the car is as ugly as one of them. :yuck:
  11. Obviously you don't know anything about car design or style. The 1953 Studebaker is one of the most beautiful car designs of all time and possibly the best US designed car ever, not just my words.

    Even with some modern tweaks the cars still are beautiful in their lines and styling. What car do you drive Scorched? A cookie cutter, hard to find in the parking lot, millions of people can't be wrong right, kind of car?

    Enough. Have a month's holiday.

    Tone that down a bit. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    Wow, and that was not even close to the harshest terms he used to refer to his enemy on some PSN talks we had. But that's it I guess he needs to cool down his head.

    I predict you know almost zero about Studebaker's cars, go take a look at the Silver Hawk then come back.

    Anyways, I like how the car of this thread looks a lot like the older models of Studebaker. I only disagree about that yellow, it just doesn't seem like it's the right colour for it, the black one looks very nice.

    Butthurt much, aren't ya?

    Looks are subjective, each to their own. I may have the opinion that Studebaker's are ugly as sin but that doesn't mean I don't respect Studebaker's history and legacy.

    A 1974 Ford Maverick 2-door.

    You predicted it wrong, I tried to see if they had any car I liked, they didn't.
  16. ....I don't mean to take the thread slightly off topic, but I just took a gander at these GWA fellas' website, and I gotta say.....

    Out of all the cars on display there, only one car looks actually decent - a mock Lambo Miura.

    If you are that way inclined, here's the offending party's webpage.

    Have they actually built any of these cars? :irked: I have never seen any IRL pictures of their cars.
  18. .....:mischievous:

    My man, the clue's in the pic for that....Bentley thingy. Just look at the background, you'll see a neon sign for a shop. Now tell me what's wrong with that. :D
  19. I have had plenty of Studebakers and I personally don't care too much for the Silver or Golden Hawks. I also don't like many other Studebakers. The origins of those cars is the 53, which is a fine car to look at. That doesn't mean that all or any other is ugly. Some are great and if you owned one and spent any time with one you would understand the beauty. That said you might not ever want to do that. You own your Maverick and I wouldn't. I would not go as far to say it was ugly even though by your standards it is. Most cars after the late sixties got ugly. But I might say that about most Ford or GM cars for most years. Some are outstanding but they are few and far between, just like Studebaker, and the majority of years were just ad ons and bad designs.
