    Looks like there's only 13 days until I start a new thread for GT Sport. Since the official car list came out today, I picked out the cars I will be testing. My rules are that they must be real cars that you can, or will be able to, purchase from a dealership and drive on public roads.

    Here are all 43 of them:

    N 100
    Mazda Roadster S (ND)
    Toyota S-FR

    N 200
    Alfa Romeo 4C Launch Edition
    Alfa Romeo MiTo 1.4 T Sport
    BMW i3
    Citroën DS3 Racing
    Mazda Atenza Sedan XD L Package
    Peugeot 208 GTi by Peugeot Sport
    Peugeot RCZ GT Line
    Renault Sport Clio R.S. 220 EDC Trophy
    Toyota 86 GT
    Volkswagen Golf VII GTI

    N 300
    Audi TTS Coupé
    Ford Focus ST
    Honda Civic Type R (FK2)
    Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track
    Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition
    Renault Sport Mégane R.S. Trophy
    Subaru WRX STI Type S

    N 400
    Aston Martin V8 Vantage S
    BMW M4 Coupé
    Ford Mustang GT Premium Fastback
    Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG 4MATIC

    N 500
    Chevrolet Camaro SS
    Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (C7)
    Jaguar F-type R Coupé
    Lexus LC500
    Lexus RC F
    Mercedes-Benz Mercedes-AMG GT S
    Porsche 911 GT3 RS (991)

    N 600
    Dodge Viper GTS
    Ferrari 458 Italia
    Honda NSX
    Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4
    McLaren MP4-12C
    Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
    Nissan GT-R Premium Edition

    N 700
    Dodge Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat
    McLaren 650S Coupe

    N 800
    Aston Martin One-77
    Lamborghini Veneno

    N 1000
    Bugatti Veyron 16.4
    Ferrari LaFerrari

    I will be starting from N 100 and working towards N 1000 at a pace of one car per week. I don't want to have to come back to a car and try to do better. 7 days should be enough to squeeze all the time I can out of each one.

    I believe the track will be Suzuka Circuit. This is going to be fun! I hope all you guys who followed this thread will join me on my next journey!

    Hey! Long time since you posted any time-attack lap time. Glad to see you back!

    My proposition is that you test the cars in Interlagos. Suzuka is one of my favourites alongside Spa, Monaco, Laguna Seca and a few more for sure but Interlagos is epic also.

    I might tackle back the time attacks as well, do you have a specific order you plan to follow ? Could be fun if we follow the same order ;)

    I will test at Interlagos this time. Thanks for the suggestion, @Rotorist

    And like I said, I'm going to start with the slowest cars and work up to the fastest, so the MX-5 and S-FR will be my first trials. I hope you do get back into the time attacks. I enjoyed your thread @GT_Alex74

    Interlagos has a nice layout for sure.

    I'll do it again for sure, I might wait a bit before starting though, a bit of time to get hold of the game and my new G29 won't hurt.

    I think I'm going to wait until 2018 to start the trials. PD keeps updating the handling. I've also reconsidered the track selection. In the interest of saving time, I'm going to test at Suzuka East. I've done some pre-trials already and I like how short the lap times are. The stock Nissan GT-R can do it in under 1 minute. I've tested the Toyota S-FR and it can do 1:08 or better.

    Wise decision imho. Handling physics changes in the first few months and might make results unfair for some cars.

    Well guys, I finally got a wheel (T300 RS Ferrari and Playseat Challenge) and just ran 10 laps in a MX-5 to get familiar with it. I saved my best lap replay from when I used my DS3 before the 1.06 update, and my new best lap is 4 whole entire seconds faster. Not sure how much of that has to do with the update and how much is thanks to the wheel, but still that's amazing. Wish I had this when I tested all of these 700+ cars :(

    Surely most of the time improvement has to do with the change in the physics model of GT6 with the 1.06 patch. Also, 1-2 secs comes from the T300RS since MX5 is playful and the feedback helps a lot to not overdrive when pushing on the limit or over that. Have fun using that!

    This was a great effort - good to know you will be carrying on with GTS. :cheers:
    A great reference thread, deserving of being pinned for players who continue to play GT6. :tup:

    Thanks. I am sometimes amazed that I spent so many hours on this project. 700 cars is quite a lot!

    I'm already at 70 cars tested in GT Sport, although only 8 of them have my seal of approval so far.

    Link to that thread is in my signature. I hope you'll check it out :)
