    The most prominent difference I see when they are viewed in the front is that the Lambo significantly sits lower than the Jensen. Still, I'm surprised to see that they have a model with those twin rounded headlights.

    Another thing that lends itself to the Espada theory is the foglamps or indicators mounted underneath the main headlights.

    what the thonl.png

    If you look closely you can see that underneath the big headlights in this out of focus image you can see smaller lamps like the ones on the Espada. They seem to be amber like those on a series II Espada.

    Yup. It's a big nod to the traditional design of those classics where steel bumpers are still also a common sight on cars way back then.

    Its a very odd car design for todays standards but i like it,and it looks like the wheels on the espada are gigantic

    I need help with something.

    I've been recording the amount of miles driven each day (just for fun, not for serious purposes or anything) and I accidentally forgot to update how much I drove on April 2, 2019 (last updated: 233.3 miles).
    My total distance driven is 49,617 miles and have put in 63.2 miles this morning on April 3, 2019.

    I want to figure how much I really drove on April 2, 2019 as I must have driven more than 233.3 miles that day.

    I wouldn’t doubt that. They seem to have nicked up a few things with the last one that there’s little doubt some housekeeping is in order.

    Anyone else having issues logging into the GT website community page. Sometimes log-in home page says ‘Network Error’. Other times you can log in, but it says Access Denied.

    I’m using IOS/Safari.

    Will try another browser.

    Edit: Still no joy.

    Edit 2: Tried on laptop and the same.

    Edit 3: PS4, App and PSN site all log-in. So just GT site that’s down.

    Edit 4: Turn 2-step verification off and it logs in on GT Community site. So it’s a problem on PD’s side.

    Aren't there any leaderbords for time trial? Couldn't find other results than my one. Wanted to see how fast I'm with a 1:37:3 at Suzuka with the SF Honda.

    Today I learned here's a GT Cafe at Twin Ring Motegi. And they serve a dish called "GT Rice". Which sounds a bit gross, described as "tomato based starchy sauce and rice" but i want to try it. :lol:

    I recently opened a second PSN account due to different reasons, decided to play GTS on it aswell

    Completed the Nordschleife Circuit Experience. The wheel starts to roll. 330 P4 AND Aston Martin DBR1 are on the wheel. It lands exactly between them on Time Attack Impreza

    Completed Blue Moon Bay CE, wheel starts to roll, Gr.2 racer, Gr.1 car and some decent N class car, but the wheel decided to land on oldschool Beetle

    I've seen 2000GT three times on the CE wheel today, and didn't get it once

    Almost won a Shifter Kart, almost. But this time i got lucky and won an Aventador

    Seriously, it's like DWC gets worse and worse with every update #justranting

    Isn't there's also a road called Paseo de Yamauchi named after Kaz in Spain?I also heard about a road called Gran Turismo Dr.

    Putting the old Beatle in the wheelspin is just cruel

    Yeah. But they don't serve food. :cheers:

    There's a small road somewhere around Mt. Panorama, probably on the track grounds, doesn't show up on a map.

    The road in Ronda Spain, looks amazing Google reviews - here.

    Oh, wow, the elusive Gran Turismo Café! I wasn't sure if it was still around! Hopefully I'll have a chance to visit it soon...

    I covered it on the blog when it opened exactly 10 years ago.

    https://www.gtplanet.net/the-gran-turismorestaurant/
    https://www.gtplanet.net/real-picture-of-gran-turismo-cafe/

    I've always been a little suspicious of "Gran Turismo Drive" at Bathurst... Even though the mayor of Bathurst was there to christen it, apparently nobody else was (it was revealed while the GT event was happening in Ronda, on the other side of the world). :lol: None of the pictures from the reveal really showed where it was at, but the background of the launch video offers some clues:

    The painted checkerboard on the road is still visible on Google Maps!

    Yes, the Paseo de Kazunori Yamauchi was revealed during the GT 15th Anniversary event in Ronda, Spain. I have never seen Kazunori so surprised or embarrassed as when they pulled that flag over to reveal the sign — he had no idea they were going to do that. :lol:

    https://www.gtplanet.net/paseo-de-kazunori-yamauchi/

    [​IMG]

    It's actually more of a walkway (hence the name, "paseo") rather than a "road", but it is the most important walkway in Ronda (and quite a bit more impressive than that parking lot aisle in Bathurst!). It is in the middle of the city and offers the best view of the landmark bridge, the Puente Nuevo. Here are some more pictures that I took which show exactly where/what it is.

    You can see the start of it where the large group of people are in this photo, and you can see how it wraps around the edge of the cliff. It leads to a park on the other side that offers more views of the valley below.

    A closer look at the start of the path. You can see where the (covered) plaque/sign is on the short wall near the middle of the photo:

    IMG_1260.jpeg

    View from the path itself:

    IMG_1285 2.jpeg

    And from the valley below:

    IMG_1411.jpeg

    Thanks for a good excuse to look through all my photos from that trip. :D Ronda really is spectacular.

    Thank you for sharing those pictures.

    I searched online yesterday for pictures of Ronda. But yours are much nicer. I'd never seen the picture of him covering his face (that's adorable). GTPlanet truly is the place to come for GT info. :gtpflag:

    I knew Gran Turismo was special,
    but I didn't know it was that special.

    Doubt it, unfortunately. According to the profile he was last active Oct 30, 2018.

    However, upon forther inspection, it seems like it'll be possible to watch just on the website :)
