    I've so much mixed feeling about the updated standard cars. Some really look great now, I only discover I still don't buy them though.

    Does anyone know that the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution V's been updated?

    Doesn't look like poop. Wheel arches are rather smooth but it's not on the level of the mx5s or anywhere near.
    No clue what it looked like in gt5.

    You'll be happy to know that the Mira is pretty much the only Kei car to be given the semi-premium treatment. :)
    Here's mine parked next to my Eunos Roadster

    It's a shame, I was hoping for the Suzuki Alto Works to be finally fixed up. It was one of my favorite Kei cars.

    It's still quite possibly the worst of them all, and should never have made it into this, or GT5, in the quality it's in.

    Anyway, back to some goodies,,,

    Here's the two DB9's, in the same paint, side by side for comparison. The one with the full kit fitted is the premium, with the other being the cleaned up standard, which can also have the same kit added.

    Oh yeah, I did notice that the standard DB9 looked more similar to its premium counterpart in the dealership and it shows here. It is nice to know though that the standard MX-5s aren't the only standards that can have bodykits equiped to them.

    The premium DB9 is such a gorgeous model.

    The DB9 standard looks REALLY good. Almost cant tell which is the standard or premium model in that pic.

    The standard DB9 just has the premium shell with different specs.

    It's sort of an Easter egg at this point. There should have been a trophy associated with it. "All them jaggies" or something. I wouldn't be surprised if this particular car even makes it to GT7 just to troll fans.

    By this point, I just see it as the GT series' equivalent of MissingNo. Only it's an untouched relic rather than a glitch. But the designs are uncanny.

    If only GT6 had its own cereal:

    I can't believe the difference in some of these. The comparison pics are startling. I won't be ashamed of driving old cars anymore!

    Right here.

    It's not surprising that the Caterham was upgraded seeing as the same semi-premium model was already used in GT5 as the cockpit model after Spec 2.0.

    Thanks, guys! The Caterham is looking great. It might not be far too noticeable, but nevertheless, I'm glad they've put som more effort into making it look better.

    oh man it's nice to see those smoother lines on the Caterham, looks much better! I wonder, did they upgrade the polygonal mesh or is this a function of the new rendering engine?

    The Caterham was the first open wheel car I went after before the KTM X-BOW and the Rocket, all because it got updated which I liked. (>_l)b

    I don't like the fact that none of the GC8 imprezas got remodeled, but I like that PD at least fixed the jagged textures on them. Here's my Type R Sti:
