    This thing looks awesome. I bet it's an absolute blast to drive. Hopefully this one comes quick (but I'm not gonna hold my breath on that one)

    About time too. What about the GoPro Camaro that won in 2016? (It was 2016 when it won, right?)

    For reference: FuguZ scanning announcement was in November 2017 and the car was added in December 2018 (1.31). Makes you think...

    Simply put, because the FuguZ is truly one of a kind. The Pandem EG is generic SEMA fodder.

    It can be faster this time, we don't know if the people charged on the FuguZ have to finish X cars before that one ...

    I'm a bit hung up on that "upcoming release" statement...

    The PS5 is rumored to release some time in 2020, and GT7 afaik was confirmed as a launch title. Up above you guys mentioned the FuguZ was put into the game a year after it was scanned, so...upcoming release sounds far more interesting now.

    Not bad looking at all

    It looks like it could be used to steal DVD players in an era gone by. Are they obsolete yet?

    A game can't be confirmed for a launch title if the system itself doesn't even have a launch date. :p

    Didn't the pagani huayra take 3 months from scanning to release?

    There is no confirmation,some infos from that leak was confirmed but that rumor still has chances of being fake

    How much power does this Civic have?

    What's a DVD player?

    Considering they're both running kits that are SEMA Fodder, I fail to understand how one is actually unique and the other isn't in this case.

    Front driver..
    Yuck.
    Actually that's not fair, as there are fun front drivers out there.. I just truly despise Civics.

    Like most SEMA cars it looks much worse than the original. Hopefully it handles alright.

    Yes it can. PS5 will be launched at some point in the future and GT7 will be a launch title at that same point in time.

    EG's are the lightest and best-looking Civics. You can't change my mind. I had a 95 Coupe EX back in the F&F days. Fantastic daily. New Civics are bloated monstrosities.

    Nice wide tyres. We need an all out Gran Turismo Awards event. Add the WRX Time Attack and BR-Z drift car. Maybe I'll do a Lobby for that.

    It seems a lot of SEMA/show winners have been announced as "coming to a GT near you" but how many actually have

    Except the Civic is actually built for time attack, and has history on the track. The only reason it hasn't been on track in its current state is because Phil didn't want to have an accident before it got the chance to be scanned into the game.

    Some great shots of the car:
