    I feel like this pays more tribute to Matra than does Alpine...I mean long tail French Le Mans car really is more of a Matra-Simca thing...

    Excatly, although it is funny to announce this early. Than again, it was announced at a auto show so, nothing wrong with that.

    That kind of tells you that they had to organize everything around the auto show. The real car is on display so even if the virtual car isn't ready, they have no choice but to tease it right now because it would look silly if the car was in the Auto Show with no mention of it in the game. It's just a timing issue, nothing to worry about. When you have to coordinate the real and virtual world, things don't always the way you want them to:sly:

    I took a good look and the track doesn't match either of those. Suzuka has elevation changes, but not at all hilly like that. Same goes for Spa. In-fact, I don't think there's a single licensed or fictional track like that. So either its something made up just for that press or its a new track (unlikely yet at the same time, maybe). Either way, I can't find any track on GT6 that looks like that.

    Maybe it's Le Mans? I dunno, could be that track... Actually, I can't really tell, the section shown in that part of the video isn't something I've seen in other GT games. It could a PR trick, or an actual new track, who knows?

    As bumpy as Circuit De La Sarthe is, its not THAT bumpy.

    Looks very Suzuka to me, but I don't think it's really Suzuka. Doesn't match Motegi either.

    I wonder how it will feel driving it, something remarkable with a deep soul and unique feel or just another race car totally planted on track and somehow lifeless, hopefuly the former.

    I also hope it's the former. At least the specs seem promising on paper; this is not a 4WD hybrid GT car like most VGT cars, so that's a start. Hopefully, the Alpine brand's smooth handling and sharpness will also be a part of the car.

    Bugatti Circuit? You can see its course map at the cockpit's HUD screen on one of the Alpine's photos. @doblocruiser also captured it (post #274) ;)

    Do find a corner similar to the one shown on the video and you will be right. I don't quite remember how the Bugatti Circuit looks like, so there needs to be a visual proof of what you're suggesting.

    I don't think it's Bugatti either, I can't see red barriers like the ones present in the shots

    Just watched an onboard video at the Bugatti Circuit and I could not find something similar to what we've seen in the trailer

    This is the video I saw (Really nice video, BTW)



    I have a feeling that it is actually a new circuit, becuase I can't remember a fenceless mound after a corner, in any track of the game.

    I think it looks more like COTA

    I agree, unless they changed the landscape, I highly doubt it's the Bugatti circuit. See below:

    Can it be COTA? Isn't that in Arizona? Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't that area mostly arid environment?

    COTA's in Austin, Texas if I'm not mistaken. It's inclusion within a future GT6 version would be no big surprise actually.

    We have a 1% possibility until someone finds what's the track shown in the video (of course it would be a track or just a kind of demonstration to promote the Alpine....)

    Ah, ok, that makes sense. For a rough reference, here's an image of COTA:

    To be fair, there are lots of trees in the background and COTA... well.. Texas..
    It's in Texas. I don't remember watching a tree around the circuit..


    This is driving the thread off topic.. is this worth a new thread?

    I'm going with Spa... But maybe they want to release the car with the Bugatti track but it's not ready yet?

    Yes, that's my train of thought, Texas isn't the most forested area I know of...

    And yes, perhaps it's better to speculate on another thread, and keep this one on topic about the Alpine VGT.

    Bathurst has similar-ish barriers but is much more twistier than what is shown.

    Even though for instance, that Matra 660 you posted came after the A220 that this was partially inspired by? ;)

    In fact, Matra's Le Mans cars came after Alpine's so it was Alpine that did it first.

    Nurb GP track after first twisty part of the track... I think that is track in trailer.

    It could be the curve before the chicane at the back straight.

    I don't think so, because the curbs in the trailer are way to flat compared to the Nurb GP circuit. They also are more "rounder" if you know what I mean. It could be Spa...
