My 1980s Group A grid just got sweeter. Not only do I get to add the GTS-R, I get to kill two birds by adding the 240…. as an estate no doubt!
Also, can’t wait for the Volvo to get a V8 swap at some point.;)

Predicted the EG as a bonus. It’s going to be so cool to create an accurate JTCC model. Now, just need a fwd sedan(cough Primera) to compliment it. :D

The Suzuki vgt v8 would be perfect for the 240
 
Pretty decent list, but would have liked 3 VGTs and 2 EVs...
Great to see you're so supportive. Don't forget to also pay $5,000 for the exclusive wrist watch to access those vehicles. My money's just burning a hole in my pocket during this financial crisis, looking to just it spend it on such groundbreaking content that we've all been waiting for.

I’d prefer the classic 5.0 swap, but any V8 would do. ;)

Not for nothing, but this article from 2019 has a 1993 model wagon in it. I’m sure PD could have sourced one anywhere in the world, but interesting it’s Hagerty.
1993 Volvo 240 Wagon 3/4 front
1993 Volvo 240 Wagon BaT

Hope it’s a manual
Transmission choices for the car included four and five-speed manuals (1987-onwards for the latter), as well as three and four-speed automatics. Stick-equipped cars are much livelier than their auto brethren, especially in turbo form.

Considering the silhouettes, I bet we’ll get at least three new events. Specifically, a new round of the WTC 800, as well as one for events that are generally for European and Japanese cars. I don’t see the R31 being eligible for the Nissan GT-R Cup, but I think that’s obvious enough. There could also be more events that may not necessarily correlate to the new cars, as well.

For a new Extra Menu, I bet that there could be one for all three JGTC-era GT500 racers. I’d definitely be down for a new Bonus Menu, too, but I’m unsure of what motif it could have. Maybe we could see the return of the Type R Meeting?
 
Maybe an all Civic event.

Really hyped for the update. I’ll be buying many multiples of each and definitely using every one of them. 👍
In the past they have offered Honda Type-R events, which would disqualify the EG Civic.

Which car class in GT7 would that NSX fit into? Will it be Gr.3?
Given that its fellow JGTC compatriots (Castrol Supra and Pennzoil GTR) are on Gr.3, yeah its certain that its going to be Gr.3.

Also I'm hyped for this update as now I can start working on my JGTC grid. Had to wait for the NSX to come and now here we are.

Personally, I would have liked an EF Civic hatchback.
Great to have Volvo added. Hopefully the BTCC and 850R show up. Those are probably far more desirable to many people.
Thanks heavens there isn't another VGT.

If that's the case, it'll also mean a slight model change from the old one. Prevously we had the '88 240 GLT but the GLT trim level disappeared after 1990 so either it'll be something else, or they've just used a '93 for the modelling as it's the exact same car with some decal and interior material changes. The only difference is the rear hatch window which changed in 1990 so interesting to see if they got that right.
 
My first thought for the nearest car was Alfa 147 GTA, but I can see it being an EG, as well.
 
Yeah, that’s why I said All Civic rather than a Type-R meeting.
I should have worded my post better. My point was that I personally doubt they would do a Civic event without making the whole thing Type-R themed, as it used to be.
 
A financial disagreement.

Sadly the relative promise of a resolution as suggested by Lotus back in 2019 doesn't look to have happened yet.
Volvo and Lotus both belong to Geely, right? So one could think that the return of Volvo opens the door for the return of Lotus.

No. Geely, Lotus, and Volvo are all owned by ZGH (as are LTI, Lynk&Co, and Polestar).

No. Licensing is under the purview of PR and marketing, which each brand manages for themselves. The only company that operates the way you suggest is Stellantis (and even then, Maserati has its own teams).

The issue with Lotus not being in GT is between PD and Lotus.
 
Definitely. Previous JGTC cars were also Gr. 3 cars and are close enough to FIA GT2 race cars.

JGTC cars from at least 2003 and later were much faster, and thus, are those you can expect to be in Gr. 2.
What is the year or years that the incoming NSX was produced?
