Overview Manufacturer ETK Production 1985-1993 Slogan "Race-bred performance" Body and Chassis Class Mid-size (US), Compact Executive (EU) Body style Sedan Layout Front-engine, RWD or AWD

The ETK I Series is an executive sedan (midsize by US classification) produced by ETK between 1985 and 1993. The car is quite small for its class. It is available with a 2.4 or 3.0 liter Inline 6, with optional turbo, as well as rear or all wheel drive. The vehicle was added to the game in version 0.6.


Development

The I-Series during the early modeling stage

It's as comfortable carving up winding back roads as it is taking a beating in a demo derby.

—Gabester, BeamNG Dev Blog, 10 December 2012

The I Series' shell was first shown in a blog titled "ETK 2400i" in late 2012. In a community poll for vehicles that people wanted in BeamNG.drive, it was the sixth most popular entry in the list, with twenty votes.[1] In a subsequent poll, it came in fourth, with thirty-six votes.[2]

The 2400i was first shown in-game in two development screenshots in March 2016[3][4], with other screenshots following soon afterwards, showing progress and customization. The vehicle had one of the longest development times of any vehicle, and it was finally released as the twentieth vehicle with the 0.6.0 update on July 23, 2016.

Overview of Models

So far, all I Series models have Inline-6 engines, with the model number of each vehicle (3000 for example) corresponding with the displacement of the engine the model contains (3.0L or 3000cc).

Facelift models replace the amber turn signals with white ones, have different wheels, anti-lock brakes (unless otherwise specified), a slightly different trunk logo (unless otherwise specified), and lose the plastic perimeter trim. The front and rear bumpers are also reshaped slightly to account for the dropped trim.

2.0L Models

Although there are not currently any models with this engine, there are badges for potential future "2000" models in the 0.6.0 game files, which may include a 2.0L engine.

2.4L Models

All of the models featuring 2.4L engines are badged as "2400".

2400

The basic 2400 is the low-end trim of the lineup. It has a detuned engine, chrome and plastic trim, and a classic black and blue plaid interior (replaced with gray for facelift models).

2400i

The 2400i is a step up from the 2400. This model features stock engine tuning, more chrome trim around the perimeter of the body, a front lip with turn signals, and headlight wipers.

2400ix

The 2400ix boasts far more obvious changes from its lower-level sibling, including all-wheel-drive, nicer wheels, black trim around the windows, and a new cream and black interior, while retaining all the improvements of the 2400i. It is also seemingly slower than the 2400i due to the increased weight of the AWD system. Both variants of this vehicle have anti-lock brakes and alternate trunk logo.

2400ti TTSport

The 2400ti TTSport is equipped with TTSport badging, Stage 1 turbocharger, sport suspension and quick ratio steering, twin exhaust, sportier wheels, body colored trim, black interior, and a three-spoke steering wheel. A vertical bar between the tachometer and the speedometer shows how much output the turbo is applying.

The 2400TI Version as seen in 0.6 Update

2400tix TTSport

The 2400tix TTSport is similar to the 2400ti TTSport, except this model has AWD, and anti-lock brakes are available on both variants.

2400ti TTSport Evolution

Similar to the facelift 2400ti TTSport, but this model replaces the Stage 1 turbocharger with a Stage 2 turbo, and also has race suspension parts, lowering the ride height. The trim and bumpers have been swapped with a Brigsby body kit, and a tall Brigsby rear spoiler. The wide exhaust and vented hood from the Custom are also present.

2400tix TTSport Evolution

Similar to the 2400ti TTSport Evolution, but with a front transfer case, and all wheel drive.

3.0L Models

All of the models that have 3.0L engines are badged as "3000", and are a higher trim level overall than the 2400 models.

3000i

The 3000i is similar to the 2400i, although it has the cream and black interior and the wheels from the 2400ix, as well as a twin exhaust.

3000ix

The 3000ix is similar to the 2400ix, although it has body colored perimeter trim, and both variants have the white facelift turn signals and alternate trunk logo.

Special Models

Models that include aftermarket parts are built for specific activities and rarely are directly identified by a number. Unlike most of the production models, which included pre-facelift and facelift variants, special models are only built with one or the other.

Street Tuned

The Custom I Series is based on the pre-facelift 3000i. However, it has a vented hood, an Arinda racing wheel, Stage 3 variable boost turbocharger, wide exhaust, small lip rear spoiler, riveted fender flares, and side-mounted front license plate, as well as the body colored trim, black window trim, and white facelift lights of the 3000ix.

Track

Based on the 2400ti TTSport Evolution. Features a Basso race skin, rollcage, vented front bumper, and a Nomi wheel. The headlights are covered, and the passenger seat, rear bench, lower turn signals, inner door panels, trunk badging and license plates are removed.

Rally-Gravel

Based on the 2400ti TTSport Evolution. All of the blacktop suspension parts and tires are replaced with Rally-oriented parts. Like the Track model, the door panels and rear bench are gone, and a rollcage and Nomi wheel (albeit a different wheel) are installed instead. The rear badging and license plate are gone too. It also has AWD, a twin exhaust, and the Custom's riveted fender flares.

Knallhart

A unique custom variant with massive power and all-wheel drive. Appeared in the 0.9 update.
