    Unlimited/RPG cars are fun to design. To update this, I needed to balance whether component armor is more important than sloping (I basically chose CA, but I would've taken out the RL and gotten sloping as well).

    Name Notes - See the original. The art is of my favorite (foreign) car when I was playing Car Wars in the 1980s, the Lamborghini Countach.
