    Kaz must have seen this more then once on the Ring?

    My guess is he just doesn´t know about the hughe cultural influence and history this car bears, in europe and especially in its country of origin.

    If he knew, we´d already have it!

    If they fail to find the interior, then it will be standard. The PD don't include more premium cars because they failed to put interior image.

    That must be the most stupid thing I've ever heard. All cars PD has introduced since GT5 have been Premium, with Interior and everything. Even the Isuzu 4200R, a car that DOESN'T EVEN EXIST ANYMORE was Premium with Interior.

    Haha, if PD should ever make this car, I hope they model the interiour properly:

    Every detail is important!

    What about the XFR and Axela? ;)

    Also, the reason 4200R is Premium was because there is a remaining data available from Isuzu. (Try to tell that regarding Furai) Also, the Vision GTs won't have cockpits, and the 2005 GT-R Proto and the FT-86 II didn't have cockpits either, yet they are premiums.

    As far as I know they modeled the 4200R using old photographs and by working together with it's designer. Since the Furai was a much more recent Car, which also seems to be pretty well documented, it should be easy for PD
    to remodel it. Talking about concept cars: The GT-R Proto and FT-86 II are just that, also if you look at photos of those two cars, you'll see that both have blacked out windows, which usually indicates that the cars do not have interiors as such.

    Regarding the Axela and XFR, they probably are leftovers from GTPSP that didn't make it into the final game, but were included in GT5 and 6 anyways.
    Finally, how do you know that all VGT Cars won't have Interiors? As of now, the only VGT is the Mercedes-Benz one, and that one was probably rushed so it could be available as day one DLC.[/quote]

    Stop right there, sir. I don't trust PD to provide us with an interior for the AMG VGT... But we've been promised one. Which means that at least in Yamauchi's mind those cars will have detailed interiors, and if they won't it will be only because of time constrains.

    Yes, of course this Manta must be in GT6.

    MANTA

    This is the defining car of the 2014 Zurich Nurburgring 24 Hours.

    Kaz, we need MANTA.

    The big question is should the foxtail be fitted as standard or listed under 'other' in the aero section?

    After the Nurburgring 24H today, the Manta has completed over 1,000 racing laps since the car first took part in the Nurburgring 24H.

    Over 16,000 miles or 25,750 km on just the whole Nurburgring.

    This car is living a good life.

    After seeing the fabled Manta so heavily featured in EXP's PitStop posts, and then seeing it in this video, it would seem that at least someone at PD must have taken notice of it, so perhaps we've got an inkling of a chance of driving it in the next GT.

    The sticker on the front windshield already makes common sense that one day, it will be in a GT game.

    How many times do we have to tell you that's not the case?

    You once said earlier that VLN cars are supported by GT, and this one is.

    The VLN series is sponsored by Gran Turismo. None of the cars outside of the Autohaus Schulze GTR are actually supported by Gran Turismo.

    No, I said they sponsor the VLN. All cars bear the windscreen logo.
