Akare Skykord Edit
The Akare Skykord was Akare's first production vehicle and flagship luxury sedan. The first generation was produced in 1966 and has spanned 3 generations thus far, with the third still in prototype stage.
First Generation Edit
|Production, Lore|| 1966
|Powerplant||Thruster, simulated 3L L6, 200bhp|
|Drivetrain||4 Speed thruster gearbox|
The first generation Skykord was put into production in 1966 (2007) as a large, luxury sedan. It was a massive car and exceptionally advanced for its time, utilizing early Wiremod's logic gates for a "geared" thruster transmission to provide a realistic acceleration and top speed (for the time). The car was set up to simulate the performance of a 3 liter inline six providing around 200 bhp. The car could reach 70 mph, a high speed for this era. The Skykord was comprised of all-physical vanilla props with a weld-based solid axle suspension. Steering was performed by thrusters, the front wheels did not actually steer.
Second Generation Edit
|Production, Lore|| 1970, 2014
|Suspension/Chassis||4 wheel independent, onboard slave steering|
|Powerplant||4.8L L6, 316 bhp (Restored)|
|Drivetrain||4 speed manual (Restored)|
|Top Speed||110mph (Restored)|
In 2014, Akare restored a single example of an original Skykord Coupe, giving it new life with the addition of a 316bhp 4.8L inline six provided from acf mated to a 4 speed manual transmission. The original chassis, steering and suspension was retained while the body was completely parented, versus the completely physical previous version, and the addition of spherical wheels. This "new" Skykord could scramble to 60mph in less than 6 seconds and reach a top speed of 110mph.
Third Generation Edit
|Production, Lore|| 2011-
|Layout||Front engine, AWD|
|Suspension/Chassis||4 wheel independent with geometry|
|Powerplant||9.2L V12 Diesel, 434bhp, 684 ft lb|
|Drivetrain||7 speed automatic|
