Was about to suggest this car, but saw it already was, so here's my like/vote! :D

This car is really a must have!

I've been thinking about the GT/FIA announcement and you'd have to say that this car would be a no brainer for the FIA championship as a control car. It'd be relatively easy to provide a full field (one car, 10 liveries) although I don't think many of the tracks can be found in GT6.

May I suggest changing the name of the car to include the "FIA Formula E control car" as it may help get more votes.

Formula E could gain a lot more followers if it is added to Gran Turismo, many people discover new racing series from these games.

I'd suggest the thread starter have this put in the first post. It'll provide a lot of info on the car right from the get go.

It's only faster than an InterSteps car. :lol:

Only for this year, I think because the series is said to increase as far as technical freedom goes over the next few seasons until it's completely wide-open. Whether Formula E will last long enough to see the fruits of that promise is another question entirely...

Another example of GT making "deals" and Forza making "content". Seeing this and the new Mustang added to Forza's lineup is pretty frustrating.
I see what you mean but surely these deals lead to content. We are yet to see any FIA related content but we see content once per year from Red Bull.

Indeed, but the wait leads to high expectations (Like with the Senna content). Whatever is delivered is unlikely to be less than what we've build up in our minds, also what's the point of having the associations if the competition beats you to the punch anyway? Forza's not delivering the world, but what you're getting is ready immediately not months down the track, if at all!

I would love content now as much as the next guy. However, I would like to see partnerships as they often lead to big things. We haven't seen anything from the FIA partnership apart from a championship and I am waiting to see what will come.

For other similar Competitors refer to Alternative Fuel Sources page under Electric Cars.

The Spark-Renault SRT 01E would be great competition for the Formulec EF01 or the Lola Drayson B12-69Ev (24hr Lemans Prototype). There are many great full electric cars listed on this page, as well as Air powered and steam powered cars. Please notify me if i have missed any electric, Air or steam cars.

The Formula EF01 was the testbed for the SRT 01E, and the Lola B12-69EV would eat it alive.

I thought it was awesome :D Only the commentators didn't really shut up long enough to let the viewer enjoy the sound of the cars :( Just hope the car will come to GT6... I'll be driving the cr*p out of it :D

I'm a big fan of electric r/c car racing, so the sound of the Formula-e cars was like music to me ^_^
