    I believe, although this is only taking it from comments here and elsewhere.

    All cars have damage, but only 170 of the interiors will react to damage in some form.

    So it’s still only 170 cars with interiors and/or damage?
    That’s what we’ve been waiting for?
    No wonder they said it was ready for release at any time.
    The damn thing has no content!

    RIP FLOPZA3 aka garbage MS race

    GT5 has 1000 cars – But 830 of GT5’s are stright GT4 copies.
    flopza3 has 400 cars LOL

    GT5 has 16 cars per track
    Flopza 3 has 8 cars per track LOL – Quality over quantity

    GT5 runs at 1080p NO IT DOESN’T! 1080p mode is 1280×1080 (2xAA) THATS NOT PROPER 1080p
    FLopza 3 runs at 720p

    GT5 has weather and night racing – Says who?
    FLOPZA3 has nothing

    GT5 has ultrarealistic environment and cars
    Flopza3 has plastic cars and environment – Fords look pastic in GT5P

    GT5 has 95 REAL TRACKS + WRC and NASCAR tracks – Proof?

    Flopza 3 has just 50 real tracks

    Keep looking on the Japanese english language site, that’s where you’ll see it in english if anywhere.

  17. Aug. 18, 9:07pm

    Could be that 170 premium models where interior corresponds to damage means that 170 cars have properly modelled interiors, whereas the rest just have simple interiors modelled from photographs etc. and only the “premium” interiors will respond to damage, so they may get bent up, but you could also see things like warning signs light up?

  18. Aug. 18, 9:07pm

    it better have the datsun 1600 and be able to put an SR20 TURBO in it that would be the best
    i also hope all the cars have damage and full interior modeling

    @Gigi Manetta
    Wan’t the idea with GT5 (or maybe GTHD) to get you to guy the tracks on the game disc, then cars as DLC.
    I reckon GT5 will be the heaviest DLC game to date.

    So, 1000 vehicles, 170 completely new (read “never seen before in a GT game”) + 830 models already present in GT4 but fully remodeled for GT5. Interiors are provided for all the cars (1000)

    830 regular models without damage. ALL cars with interiors.

    Ha, if Gran Turismo 5 had almost 2000 cars and over half of them have damage and cock pit views, I’d find it hard to complain the rest didn’t. :P

    yeah RAugie , lets hope for that ..i with u on that :)
    please PD…………..

  37. Aug. 18, 8:57pm

    Maybe it means that only on 170 cars the interior takes also damage ;-)
    I cant imagine that there are over 800 cars without interior…

  38. Aug. 18, 8:57pm
    JDigital

    CRD… that would be almost 2000 cars unless I read that wrong..

  39. Aug. 18, 8:56pm
    RAugie

    i wont believe any of it until there is a full press release with release date and full info
    please let there be at least 500 cars with interiors.
    please let there be weather in the game……

  40. Aug. 18, 8:55pm
    CRD

    other comments here are talking about 170 cars with damage. i understand the translation as actually 1000 + 170 cars with damage because the translator has understood the japanese character for one thousand to be separate from those of 170. so 1170 with damage and 830 models like gt4 without damage. and 80+ tracks

  41. Aug. 18, 8:54pm
    xtaz

    So my best hope is that they mean there are only 170 NEW cars, and the other cars from GT4 also have damage + full interior view. To be honest that would sound more realistic than the other.

  42. Aug. 18, 8:54pm
    Zmann42087

    To be frank, I could care less if only 17% of the cars have damage. I rarely crash. :-p

    On the other hand, if only 17% of the cars have an in-cockpit view.. well, then that is something to lament. :-(

  43. Aug. 18, 8:53pm
    Jeremy

    Gameplay footage would really ice this GT5 info cake

  44. Aug. 18, 8:53pm
    xtaz

    If only 170 cars have full interior + damage, that would be weird.
    That means the other 800+ cars don’t have cockpit view or what?
    If that’s the case I’d be disappointed but still buy it anyway.

  45. Aug. 18, 8:53pm
    DrThomas

    Considering Prologue has 70 cars, all with interiors, there’s no way they only added 100 cars with that.

    I dunno, damage seems to be vague, but I’m guessing it’s 170 new cars, 830 cars carried over from Gran Turismo 4. I wouldn’t jump to conclusions though.

  46. Aug. 18, 8:50pm
    James

    I’m glad we at least got some new news, but some of it seems very disappointing, only 170 cars with interiors and damage? I surely hope that something that isn’t the case and that something has been lost in translation :(

    17% Of GT5 cars will have damage? surely that is too low. I guess we will just have to wait for a proper translator to arrive.

    170 out of a 1000 cars only with an interior, i doubt it, thats has to mean 170 cars that u can damage

  52. Aug. 18, 8:48pm
    JDigital

    Yea I think we still need a real translation, some of the translated items don’t make sense so people are trying to figure out what they mean. But with automated translation HUGE errors are very possible. We still don’t really “know” all of it.

    Until I get confirmed English info I wont be looking to much into this for the time being. Translation is still to vague at the moment.

    How in the world can they only have 170 cars with damage?

    Doesn’t Forza 3 have like over 400 with interiors and damage?

    May be false info….but if true….many shall be pissed.

    Heheh, glad I have both a 360 and PS3 :-p

    nice info, will be nice to get a full translation , and shed a little light on the interior car issue, if it is just 170 cars with interior thats only 100 more than prologue :S

    I believe it says.

    170 of 1000 car models have damage.

    Looks like the interior reflects damage…like shattered windows, bent doors.

    So it looks like the Nascar and Rally cars will have damage…if numbers are right. That’s it.

    830 Models are standard models…without full damage.

    NOT FULL DAMAGE ON ALL CARS

    So…830 cars carried over from GT4? WTF!
    Sounds like only 170 cars will have full interiors and damage.
    How many of them are carried over from GT5P?
    I don’t like the sound of this really.
    Seems like we are being set up for massive DLC (which is OK if GT5 is your one true love, I suppose).

    Why is everyone hard on Jordan? I don’t see anyone else putting time and money into a GT website as big as this one is. And thanks for the info Jordan. But I’m having a really hard time reading and understanding the rough translation, but it looks tight!

    That’s not the best English and I’m not great in English either, but that sounds great. Full damage, YouTube support, and even the Tesla in the game… wow
