I checked a few angles and originally thought there was 3 colours, but It appears as though the White and Black car have the same gear on while in some angles (like the one you posted) it looks different.

Hard to say for sure, its very possible there are 3 colours.
Thanks for the clarifications, it's hard to tell if the top of the helmet is white or some kind of carbon fiber texture with a huge weird reflection on it that makes it look white. It'd be nice to have a 3rd color. :D

I agree, it strikes me as being the CF and light hitting it making it look different.

What Im thinking is it has something to do with the blue cars differences, wing, canards, lights. Like the blue might be a racing edition and the other 2 the street.

I say this because in arcade mode the gear defaults to dealership or special gear for the car, like Senna Gear. So its possible the gear used is default VGT gear specific to the model and because the black and the white car are both like a street version and the blue one a bit of a racing edition the black and white cars use the same gear but the blue cars helmet has the blue

That would make perfect sense, the only thing that makes me hope that those are racing gear for our avatars is the fact that they went through all the trouble to make a BELL helmet for this VGT, I would have assumed that they would have used the generic ARAI helmet with the brand's logo on it like on arcade mode, but I seriously hope that it's a racing gear we can buy in the game like the VW one so we can use it on our avatar, that would look so cool.
 
Came across this: http://www.carbodydesign.com/set/54...al&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer thought you guys would be interested in seeing the design sketches from the design process. Some of the other ideas were damn good.

Great find, it's always good to take a look at the ideas that weren't chosen as the final design. I particularly like this one:

Plenty of interesting takes on the car, great to see so many designers eager to put their ideas foward. 👍
 
315 kph on SS tires at the first Mulsanne chicane. Can deduce a PP from that....

Not LMP 1 numbers but 625-650 PP ?

315kmh is not very massive in top speed, I'd say somewhere along the late 500s if the SS tyres denote it as a normal type machine.

In this Thread Paul Frank is contacted, he then creates an account and makes a post about the Nike One, in case your unaware, Paul Frank Designed the Nike One... (How cool is that)

I guess its kinda the First VGT

Here is his post

Here you go. The drivetrain and interaction concept behind the Nike ONE from a few car/sports guys within. The overall idea was for a fun collaboration with our friends at GT4 and nothing more. Some of the stuff below is pretty rough and "innovative" so be prepared.

[The idea here is that the below content would be displayed in the context of a search performed on the ssww (solar system wide web) during the year 2022].


EMC2—Eletro-Magneto-cumunetics, Version 2: Nike Patent
#11251965-s

Defined

The super efficient transfer and storage of kinetic energy to usable electromagnetic energy. Service Release 2.

Abstract

In 2012, The Nike Sports Research Lab developed the first so-called Spark Suit. Essentially a wearable generator, it used nano-ion pumps to convert any movement—running, walking, even breathing, into usable electricity. A new generation of Microbatts and Microcaps made it possible to capture and store this electricity for later use. This technology has affected geo-politics worldwide and seen various applications in the sport world, especially as evidenced in a new vehicle called the Nike ONE.

Early History

The Spark Suit was essentially an accident. Originally developed as a training counterpart to Nike’s Swift Suit, it was designed to strategically impede movement. Internally called the Slow Suit, the idea was that strategic impedance would build muscle mass and improve coordination—Like the weights used by baseball players in an on-deck circle. This clothing would subtly and strategically strengthen and hone an athlete’s muscles.

The year was 2002 and Nanotechnology was in its infancy. Perhaps the greatest design challenge that Nike faced was in bleeding off the charge that inevitably built up around the nano-ion pumps. These microscopic bio-machines convert kinetic energy (movement) into tiny charges that cross potassium-sodium pathways by the mech-version of saltatory action—basically a muscle cell in reverse. Muscle cells generate tremendous heat. Since our bodies have an incredibly sophisticated system for dissipating heat, the early versions of the Spark Suit tried to utilize the body’s natural mechanism for thermoregulation. They were brutally hot. As the effectiveness of the nano-pumps increased, the thermoregulation solutions had to keep pace. Nike designers experimented with a method that turned the electricity into light—hence the name Spark Suit. These versions were incredibly bright, as energy was bled off via fiber-optic pulses. 10 years in development, the Spark suit looked to be doomed to obscurity.

Microbatts & Microcaps

Fortunately, Nike’s research was synchronous with the development of ultra-efficient, superconducting batteries and capacitors—so-called Microbatts and Microcaps. When Nike designers made the connection that there was no need to dissipate the energy—that they could effectively store and transfer it—a revolution in product design was perhaps the smallest result.

Global Upheaval

Within a few years, global energy policy was turned on its head. N.O.P.E.C, the New Organization of Power Exporting Countries quickly replaced O.P.E.C as petroleum reserves dwindled and extraction became too costly to justify. Any nation with an active populace could become a world power. The so-called “sportocracies” gained prominence as countries slow to catch the EMC2 wave saw fossil-fuel powered industries fail against the comparatively cheap bio-lectricity. Even a small country with 300 million people could capture 20 terawatts per day, more than enough to power heavy industrial concerns like automotive manufacturing. As individuals became their own power source, obesity rates world-wide dropped drastically. Hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and type 2 adult-onset diabetes were effectively eliminated.

Nike, while releasing intellectual property rights for the good of the planet, has stayed in the business of product design.

The Nike ONE

Their new EMC2 vehicle—the Nike ONE, uses the next generation of the E-Suit combined with heel mounted Microcaps and internal Microbatts to power its HEP drive (Human Energy Potential) with speeds up to 230 MPH. Because the vehicle is powered solely by an individual’s personal energy reserves, transferred to the Microbatts from prior training sessions, combined with their ability to create energy on-the-fly, a new breed of athlete has arisen. Intense mental focus, combined with the need for tremendous physical stamina and a unique blend of fast/slow twitch muscle fibers, make those who master the Nike ONE amongst the most respected athletes on the planet.

Training

Training to compete in the Nike ONE at an elite level is legendarily intense. Foundational methods follow the basic tenets now familiar to users of Nike’s EMC2 products. Specifically, focused neuromuscular control training to recruit adjacent/local muscle groups (plyometrics) combined with strategic high-load strength training. Intensive cardio work is recommended to improve the efficiency of aerobic respiration. Meanwhile, elite drivers of the Nike ONE have been known to pursue intensive regimens aimed at building tolerance to lactate, a harmful byproduct of anaerobic respiration. This is commonly referred to as pain-training, or PT, and is NOT RECOMMENDED for any but the most serious competitors. PT Methods include sitting against a wall for hours on end, repeated deep lunges while carrying enormous weights, and so-called micro-methods, like standing on the tips of your toes or hanging by the hands from a bar for hours at a time.

About the Car

Drivers of the Nike ONE describe it as a cross between wearing a machine and being a machine. Control, acceleration and braking is achieved with the large muscle groups of the legs and arms, similar to working on gym training equipment vs. traditional wrist and ankle movements. The driver controls are centered around a gyroscopic cyber-throttle which integrates cornering, acceleration and braking in a single mental motion. The mind-machine interface uses one non-invasive bio-port at each hand to connect neurotransmitters in the brain to neuro-tranceivers in the vehicle CPU. All controls feature the latest generation Supersensortm components enabling micro-resolute command-calls for maximum efficiency in breaking, acceleration and cornering. Drivers say it helps them make tiny adjustments in speed and direction, and contributes to their overall feeling of connection, power and oneness.

The Nike ONE utilizes heads-up display with race line tracking, energy reserves, etc… Max Optics Smart Glass that adjusts color to conditions for optimal contrast and clarity, Hub-less MMIW micro-motor-in-wheel, carbon/titainium weave flex frame/suspension, active aero, variable profile regrind tires (motorcycle-like strait line profile and racing slick-like cornering profile) combined with active camber/caster, Nike SHOX seat suspension to name a number of the high-end innovations.

Now was that out there or what?? Check out the images.

I'm out. Phil


And people think the 2X Laser Power is out there, this is FAR past it in left field lol you need to run laps before you can drive laps lol

195 mph at Mulsanne is a 650pp Furai or Audi R18, around 500 hp and 800 kg weight. This could be a good 600PP+ racecar if full tuning is allowed.

Kinda makes you wonder what in the world is Nike planning for its "sequel"; the Nike Two, their actual VGT project...

As for the Alpine, I won't mind the lack of power (compared to other VGTs) or speed. Some cars have to be more accessible to the drivers, and the Alpine looks more like a handling machine. And I want it to handle well, leave the speed part for other VGT cars...

From the videos (of people driving it at the event) it looks a bit nose twitchy, I think it may be similar to the Aston Martin DB-100 but better. Fast as heck but takes something to keep it together. Dont take that as anymore than my guess by the few clips Ive seen.

Yeah, the same happened with the Chaparral 2X. Just because these cars appear in certain events, the game builds may not be the same as ours. In short, the car's handling is still subjected to future changes, so we need to take these videos with a grain of salt.

Alpine pushes 450hp at 900kg on Sports Soft Tyres, and doesn't seem to push as much hard aero as these machines.

The Alpine VGT seems more like a track toy than the rest of the machines part of VGT.
