The Hirochi SBR4 is a sports car produced by Hirochi from 2013 to 2016. SBR4 stands for Shooting Brake, Rear-engined, 4-comfortable adults.[1] Originally, it stood for Shooting Brake, Rear-engined, 4-wheel-drive, although some models are rear-wheel drive.

As a modern sports car, the SBR4 is very fast and comes with electronic stability control, which means it drives nicely as well. It has a luxury interior intended to keep the driver and passengers comfortable at 40 mph or 140. Two transmissions are available: a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) or a 6-speed manual. The car comes with a flat-4 engine with optional twin-turbochargers. It is prone to understeer when travelling at high speeds with the ESC on, but turning it off results in a more enjoyable track experience.

In the 0.16 update, the new fully electric eSBR was relased, making it the first official car in BeamNG.drive to use an electric powertrain. It also has plenty of exterior and interior changes compared to engine-powered models.


Overview of Models

RWD Base

The RWD Base model is the standard SBR4. It has a naturally aspirated 2-litre flat-4 producing 191 horsepower and a choice of either a manual or a DCT. It comes standard with Hirochi SunSport S wheels and weighs 1356 kg (2990 lb).

RWD S

The RWD S model is a sportier version of the standard RWD base model. The engine has been tuned, raising peak power output to 236 hp. The RWD S is equipped with Hirochi SunSport RS wheels and sport coilover suspension in both the front and rear.

AWD S

The AWD S model is the same as the RWD S, except for its all-wheel drive system.

RWD Twin Turbo S

The RWD Twin Turbo S model comes with stage-one twin turbochargers, boosting peak output to 316 horsepower. It also has upgraded sway bars, brakes, and coilovers. It comes with Hirochi TR89 wheels.

AWD Twin Turbo S

As with the S models, the only difference between the AWD Twin Turbo S and its RWD counterpart is the drive layout.

AWD Twin Turbo Stage 2

The AWD Twin Turbo Stage 2 edition is the most powerful SBR4 available to the public; its stage-two twin turbochargers give it a whopping 475 horsepower. In an effort to efficiently transfer that power to speed, it has been given special Hirochi SBRS2 wheels and an all-wheel drive system. It averages a 3.2 second 0-60 time, but correctly timed shifts can reduce that time to 3.0 seconds with the manual transmission.

Hillclimb - Asphalt

The race-spec Hillclimb - Asphalt is the fastest official SBR4 configuration, powered by a tuned 722 hp flat-4. As it is a race car, though, it is not publicly available for sale. Features include all-wheel drive, a large hillclimb wing in place of the retractable spoiler, wider wheels and Turbo Rabbit fenders to accommodate them, and a large air funnel in the middle. It was added in version 0.6.1, with an accompanying Apex livery added in version 0.15.0.

eSBR 300

The entry-level eSBR 300 is powered by a single rear motor producing a decent 318 horsepower (hence the name). It comes with Hirochi Lightning wheels and special aerodynamic hubcaps.

eSBR 500

With an additional front motor and grey eSBR wheels, the eSBR 500 adds an additional 202 horsepower making it have 520 horsepower and a significant boost in acceleration.

eSBR 800

The high-end eSBR 800 has an upgraded rear motor, resulting in a total output of 795 horsepower. While its power is nothing to be laughed at, its 1660 kg (3660 lb) curb weight causes problems in corners, and its direct-drive transmission means it can't exceed 161 mph (259 kph) without modifying the final drive. It has black eSBR wheels, black rear bumper trim, and black taillight trim.
