The Ibishu Covet is a small, three-door Japanese hatchback built by Ibishu. It is equipped with a high-revving, single-overhead-cam 1.5L I4 engine by default, which outputs around 80 hp with its standard carburetor (and about 100 hp with the fuel injectors, as in the DXi/LXi).

The light weight of the Covet and its FWD system result in fast, responsive handling. It has a tendency for mechanical oversteer and power understeer, resulting in balanced, tossable behavior. In terms of safety, the Covet is relatively unsafe. During low-speed collisions, the soft body of the vehicle will absorb the impact very well, but the majority of the vehicle's structure lacks the rigidity to keep it in shape during an impact, meaning parts of the car may crumple inwards, potentially hurting occupants.

Overview of models

The stock model weighs around 950kg. The car is available with either a 4-speed manual, 4-speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmission. 0-60 mph takes around 12 seconds and the car will only reach 100 mph on a good day.

The ZXi model increases power output to about 115 hp, and includes stiffer suspension and 15" Ibishu Blades alloy wheels.

The Beater is a dirty version of the car with broken suspension which badly affects the handling. It can reach 60 mph in around 14 seconds. The Beater is the cheapest variant of the Covet so it makes a great project car or demo derby candidate.

The Track configuration adds a Stage 2 Turbocharger, stiff race suspension, racing steering wheel, 6-speed race transmission, limited-slip differential, faster 720 degree steering rack, roll cage, and swaps the default hubcapped steel wheels with custom 16" Folk ET73 alloys. With the Stage 2 Turbocharger, engine output is increased to around 190hp and the car can reach 60 mph in around 7 seconds. Top speed exceeds 130 mph.

The Rally-Gravel configuration includes the same upgrades as the Track configuration, but offers rally coilovers instead of race coilovers, 14" Dreid RallyPro rally wheels, and a tight 540 degree steering rack. The output of the Rally and Track models are identical (although the Rally is 20 kg heavier), but the Covet Rally is more suited to harsh terrain as its suspension has been completely retuned with variable-rate springs and advanced two-way dampers.

Trivia

  • The Covet was the first official vehicle with custom engine sounds. This was added in the 0.4.2 update, as part of advancing audio development. More proper sounds were created for the 0.10 update, two years later.
  • The Covet shares its factory trim level names (DX, LX, ZX) with the first generation Ibishu Pessima, as they were manufactured during the same time period.
