Nova Sports IK-2 Transcendence
A worthy car - remade to be legendary.
About this creation
The goal of the IK-1 was this: "...exactly what the IK-1 is made to do: to surpass all ordinary limits. Crafted with ultra-light carbon-fiber (or, in other words, some white plastic bricks), the Transcendence is designed to optimally reduce air resistance, optimize performance and give the best possible driving experience, surpassing its predecessor, the Vigor, in every possible category of performance. The whole thing is powered by an improved version of the Vigor's twin-turbo V6, which gives the Transcendence a 0-60 time of 2.9 seconds, and a top speed of 215 miles per hour."

And the designers at Nova Sports think that the IK-1 Transcendence met these goals.

They also thought it could do so much more.

And so they bring to you the IK-2 Transcendence - encompassing all that the original supercar was and much, much more. First, maybe most noticeable, is the change in engine - from a twin-turbo V6 to a 4.3 liter Twin-Turbo V8, providing a new 0-60 time of 2.7 seconds, and a 0-100 of 3.2 seconds. The car at the limits of its speed hits two hundred and twenty-seven miles an hour, all of the above times granted by 655hp.

Moving away from the powerhouse that is the engine, you can notice some other subtle changes - though the bodywork in most places is identical to that of the IK-1, the IK-2 has been fitted with large LED front lights. The interior is more welcoming than the spartan interior of the IK-2 - but not lush. Remember, this is not a luxury vehicle - this is a supercar. The six-speed dual clutch automated manual transmission is kept, but slight modifications to it give the car a more friendly driving experience that now makes the driver feel like he (or she) is truly integrated into the car, which is only right. And so, Nova Sports feels that they have succeeded, now, in capturing the essence of what a car should be; what a supercar should be.

This is IK-2 Transcendence.















With the announcement of functional doors, I would like to welcome you to the interior section. This is where you will be during most of your ownership of the IK-2, so as noted, we made as welcoming an environment as possible without going overboard.





Though at this scale I regret to say that I don't have an opening glovebox, I DO have a closed one.

Well, it's the thought that counts.



Peering through the engine bay window, we can glimpse the twin-turbo V8.



Let's have a closer look at it.









Inspired by TLG's F40 set, a Technic assembly keeps the pistons angled.



Let's put the engine back in its place to get an all-open shot. Sadly, the front doesn't open, preventing you from bringing cargo.
On the bright side, this enforces the idea that a supercar is meant to be used for pure enjoyment and not for a grueling morning commute!










I (and the rest of the somewhat nonexistent engineers at Nova) hope that you enjoyed this latest masterpiece from Nova Sports, and that you come to the dealership one day to get your own IK-2. If you do indeed like it, or see something to be improved (besides opening the front, because that's out of the equation (see earlier statement)), feel free to leave feedback, because it's always appreciated, and we (I) will not take offence.
If all is good, please feel free to leave a comment or one of those elusive smiley faces!

*Being completely out of breath, stops for one*

Thank you for having a look!

For reference, the IK-1 Transcendence.

Quoting Kevin Yoo Great work, this has a really nice shape. I especially like the hexagonal back window.
Thank you! I love it too - funnily enough, it was originally an accident/compromise due to lack of pieces! :) Glad it turned out well!

Quoting Lo var Lachland Glad that I was one of the first to add you as a favorite. Congratulations! Also, great car. I love the lines on this one, and the color white as a solid really compliments it.
Thank you! It's just a nice thing that white compliments it...even if it didn't, I wouldn't be able to help it...white's the only color I have in bulk. :) Thanks for the kind words!

Quoting Owen the Omniscient of Lithowenia Amazingly designed and elegantly presented! Well done!
Thank you, Owen! Yeah, the 'vignetting' setting (ugh, rhyme) in Photoscape is great. Creates those shadows at the edges. Oh, and I discovered that the driveway is definitely the best place for photographing my cars.

Quoting Daniel H. Oh, haha, that's fine. Also, when I said I needed one, I meant the car, not a dealership. Y'know, since you said to go to the dealership and pick one up... :P
...Well, you know, don't you need a dealership to go pick up a car FROM it? :D

Oh....oh, yeah. I probably need to build one. The only issue is, I already disassembled the car for another build. :/ Hmm, maybe another day. Thanks for the compliment, though!

Quoting Marco. qm Looks really cool, and the specs are realistic as well (Not 2000hp, 590MPH, 0-60 in 0.5s kind), but in all honesty looks a little boxy on the front. The interior is brilliant though, and rear and the engine bay look really cool.
Thanks, Marco! Yeah, I did do some research to find some reasonable statistics (that fit my car (I didn't copy any stats from another car)), and I do also agree that the front now looks boxy. It's the same front as ever save for the lights, so it's probably just said lights that give the impression of boxiness. And yes, I did want to improve the engine bay and interior the most, so...yay! :D Cheers!
