As of version 0.9, it comes in seven options.
The introductory models of the Miramar comes with a 1.6L engine that produces 84 HP at 4050-5200 RPM. A 4-speed manual transmission is standard on this model, but you can get a 2-speed automatic transmission labeled as "Mira-Matic" in the vehicle selector menu. The suspension includes an independent front and live axle rear suspension, where both front and rear use drum brakes. 13x5 steel wheels and 135/95r13 narrow striped white wall tires with dog dish hub caps are used on these models. There is also a 4.56:1 rear differential for this RWD vehicle. Both weight approximately 1045 kg (2304 lbs). The manual goes from 0-60mph in 13.9 seconds while the Mira-Matic completes it in 12.1 seconds.
The Luxe versions of the vehicle carry over the same engine, transmission options, differential, weight, and brakes as the base. The changes include body-colored steel wheels as well as whitewall tires with Luxe rear hubcaps. Performance times remain unchanged. The top speed is 94 mph, or 151.6 km/h.
The GTz version of the sedan features a 1.9L engine that produces 95 HP at 4050-5250 RPM with a 4-speed manual transmission. The differential has been upgraded to the 4.11:1 limited slip version. Other major changes include an improved specialized suspension setup, 13x5.5 wheels with 155/90R13 base tires, and sport seats. Weight has decreased minutely (0.5kg/1lb). This version achieves a 0-60mph performance time in 10.9 seconds.
The Custom variant, added in the 0.8 update on December 21, 2016, is changed massively compared to the production variants. Sharing the same high-revving 1.9L DOHC engine and 5-speed race manual with the Miramar Race, the Custom comes with race suspension, custom 14x8 TIMS Egota wheels wrapped in 205/55R14 sport tires, fender flares, a 4.56:1 race limited slip differential, and a black-painted roof. Finally, this version of the Miramar has a high-performance radiator to cool down the high-performance engine. This vehicle has a 0-60mph performance of 6.5 seconds, which is slightly faster than the Miramar Race. The Custom also has a slightly heavier weight of 1070 kg(2359 lbs).
The race version has the most changes of any Ibishu Miramar. It features a 1.9L DOHC engine that produces 200 HP at 6500 RPM with a 5-speed race manual transmission. The differential is now a 4.56:1 race limited slip, and the suspension as well as the brakes include racing parts. Wheels are now 14x8 Wangan-RS rims and tires are 195/65R14 Grip-All racing. The racing body has a roll cage, only a driver's seat, performance radiator, Nomi Mod.307 racing wheel, no headlights, an external oil cooler, fender flares, and a race exhaust. All of these features increase the weight to 1065 kg(2348 lbs). The most powerful of them all, 0-60mph times are achieved in 6.7 seconds.
