Design Notes - Updated from this 2037 design:
Subcompact, Xhvy Ch., Hvy Sus., OR suspension, Medium PP, driver, 4 OR solids, MG front, SWC; 78 pts FP armor: F24 R15 L15 B20 T2 U2; Acc. 10 HC 2 (HC3 in 2063), 2760 lbs., $9566 (listed, really its $9,216.00).
At first it appears to be such a simple enough design (subcompact with an MG, gotcha) that it may not need updated.  But where's the fun in that?  It's possibly why I decided on a LMG with explosive ammo - i.e. just to not make this car a cliche.  Since it's OR, I added the brushcutter.  In order to make room/weight for the standard upgrades (WG, disch., CA) I reduced the engine from Medium to Light, accepting the reduction in acceleration, and offseting that with HTM (can't be 'Mercury' without being fast).

Name Notes - The planet Mercury.
