Automation allows the player to become an armchair CEO - to build their own car company from the ground up. Create and run anything from a boutique supercar manufacturer to a mass-market multinational mogul.

With powerful tools like the Engine Designer, the player can create cars and their engines in mind-boggling detail.

The grand campaign starts in the year 1946 and runs until 2020, with the main goal being to build a successful, renowned car company from scratch. All types of car manufacturers can be led to success if managed properly; building the right image over the years is key.

The player’s tasks are to design engines and cars, to manage factories, production, R&D, as well as advertising campaigns. In game, time advances at the pace the player chooses and pauses automatically for events and occurrences.

Automation is comprised of three major game components - the Engine Designer, the Car Designer and the Company Manager.

These components are naturally strung together by the game’s goals, made to be user-friendly and intuitive to use.

A multitude of tutorial missions, videos, and descriptive texts help car novices become experts.

Almost infinite options give the player all the creative freedom to create unique cars with vastly different engines.

We've been hard at work on the Car Designer, and thanks to the excellent and never ending physics work of vehicle dynamics expert Martin "Der Bayer" Herrmann, we've got some very in depth stat calcualtion for cars as well as a cool test track simulator, as a bit of a bonus feature. 

Below is a big pile of dev update videos by Killrob, outlining all the stuff we've been working on

Just purchased the game, I rebuilt the engine from my car in game (253 V8 4.2 Litre) and it output pretty much the correct horsepower (120 KWs) Added a 4 Barrel carb (Which I will be doing IRL) and the outcome was around 150 - 160 KWs, awesome stuff. Thanks to this game I have been given a good understanding of what modifications will do to the engines power. I know they might not be 100% accurate to what the outcome will be in real life, but this is awesome.
