VIVA Automobiles is a fictional SketchUp automotive brand created in 2011 but originally founded in 1988.

HistoryEdit

VIVA was originally founded on 1953 as VAM (an acronym for Venezuelan Automobile Manufacture). It's very first car was the VAM 1100 , which was based on the Fiat 1100. Later on 1963, it launched it's first global car, the VAM S30, which sold from 1963 to 1968. On 1981 it was starting to get high problems when resources and sales meant. So, on 1987, it was under economical crisis and then on 1988 gone defunct. But some months later, VAM was resurrected as VIVA and then started to develop it's first car later. On 1989, the VIVA Warrior was presented, and had much expectations to sell in high levels. On 2002 VIVA launched it's first sports sedan, the SR Aero, which was literally a Renault Laguna for the american market. On 2004, it renewed it's logo and styling direction, which the first car that gone under this direction was the RV300, a compact LCV based on the Opel Combo II. On 2009 it got nearly the same situation of 1981, but got solved fast, with help of discontinuing bad models (like the short lived 2009 VIVA VR55 ). On November 2011, it was presented via the Google (now Trimble) 3D Warehouse and at the same time it presented the 2011 VR77. On March 2012 it revamped it's logo again and got developed a new design language, but everything for 2014. Currently, VIVA is in charge of 3 car brands, the VIVA R-Sport car line (a sub-brand of VIVA),  Azure Motor Company, a brand aimed mainly at economical italian-styled cars and Zenium Motors, a brand aimed at selling a wide variety of cars for all type of people, with it's lineup mainly based on Japanese cars.
