Generating 174bhp, an increase of 11bhp over the previous powerplant, the new 1.8-litre engine also delivers better performance and mileage. A 1.8-litre turbodiesel is also new, with 10-20bhp more than the 125- and 135-horsepower units it replaces.<p>An active damping system has been engineered for use in the SV100. Available in LX models and the RSport, it helps lessen body roll without hurting ride quality. <p>Several other features are available also, including active headlamps that illuminate corners, intelligent cruise control, and a power liftgate on LX estate models.<p>The front and rear ends of the car have been modified, too. The headlamps are surrounded by LEDs which give the SV100 a distinctive look at night. The tail lamps have been redesigned for a more up-to-date look, as well as the front bumper.<p>The new SV100 will be on sale worldwide by October.<p><B>There's also a hatchback model, which some of you might have seen, but I took the picture out.</B><br><IMG SRC="http://img142.exs.cx/img142/4671/montgomerysv100front23vn.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://img142.exs.cx/img142/6760/montgomerysv100rear24ve.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://img142.exs.cx/img142/5964/montgomerysv100interior29af.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><B>2004 Sales: 731,640</B><p><B>There's two other cars I left out, the Nova (compact MPV; Touran/Scenic/Zafira competitor) and the Grand Legend (Full-size MPV; Espace/Odyssey/Sienna/Citroen C8 etc. competitor). I left them out because I don't have any good drawings of them, but the Grand Legend will be facelifted early next year so I'll have better pictures of it then.</B><BR><BR>

i've updated this thread with clearer pictures of the pioneer, gyro, and SV100 (i went over the drawing with a better pencil and scanned them at a higher resolution). it would take less time to draw all new pictures than to mess with the current ones of the icon, so im leaving them alone for now (i might rescan them later though). also, i've decided to add new montgomerys to this thread in the future as the lineup expands (and when i get better drawings of the legend and nova). anyway, enjoy the higher-quality pics <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beerchug.gif" BORDER="0">

You've got incredible drawing skill!<p>But having said that, the steering wheels are from current Fords and some models look too generic, especially since the Icon looks like a mini-Pacifica.

interior of SV100 reminds me too much of Opel Vectra. I dislike strange design and proportions of Pionner. On the other hand I love SV100 and Gyro. My dad would love it!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Verrucci was the luxury company and Perregrine was the "normal cars"<br>Verrucci has osme supercars in it, but now that Ive gotten older and my design tastes have changed, Im going to redo the supercars.<br>

thanks for the comments everyone, i hope they keep coming <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/ylsuper.gif" BORDER="0"> i've noticed after some people have brought it up that my montgomerys do have a strong resemblance to early 90s mercedes cars, and that was completely unintentional. actually, the main influence on my cars is the current ford mondeo, mainly for the interior and exterior of the SV100, which is the oldest design in the lineup (i did the design in 2003, but it was supposed to come out in 2001 as a 2002 model, which i'm pretending it did). since then i've tried to be more unique with my designs. <p>on another note, montgomery has a luxury arm, shannon, and i have a thread for that too if anyone wants to comment on them.

01-03-2005, 09:18 AM
well, i haven't really thought about one, but now that i have i'd like to have one in the lineup. there's a CC (coupe-convertible) version of the icon that i'm planning to do, it'll probably be finished in march. the next SV100 could have a coupe variant too, but that won't be for a while (the next SV100 won't be out until mid-2007)<BR><BR>

Your drawings are really cool, very cleen, very nice, better than some cars out there right now. They only problem is that ford sells an Icon (different spelling) In many oversea's markets (and Mexico too), I think. Just a suggestion.
