    I`m at work and have to patch first which will take hours. (Thank you "Deutsche Telekom" for being ignorant!)

    But I`m sure some people will have pictures of all colour schemes. So far I heard of M3 racing livery (the one that is seen every where) and a black one. Guess that`s it. Not sure if the black one has no stripes at all or if they just can`t be seen properly.

    One that you see it in the pic (white with red and blue strips) and black one with no strips.

    Cue aside, I think BMW has an interesting cycle when developing its VGT. Firstly they modeled an i8 to be a M1 successor, then BMW changed mind and instead modeled an M4/M235i to be a 2002 Turbo / 3.0 CSL successor.

    It does not. It's just... black. I was hoping it would keep the stripes. It would be edging towards this beauty.

    The BMW VGT isn't an M3. It's simply a modern 3.0 CSL. Every design cue is there from it. Just modernized.

    I feel that the BMW is a let down looking at those pics. It looks like a steroidal M235i rather than a wild M1-esque hypercar.

    It looks and it is, like a series 1 coupe race car version. Has nothing to do with a mid engine supercar.

    I like it. Like I said in another thread, it may not be like the render BMW showed, but it's decent at least.

    No interiors again?

    After six months? What a joke.

    Just a hint: these are cars being developed by Car Manufacturers. It's not simply a generic car for a game that someone do a drawing and think: "let's do this"... of course it's simple if you think "it's only a game" but it isn't.

    It's way more complicated, if you research about the design process inside a manufacturer.

    A simple concept like this may take months to be ready. Make that a year if you're going to show it @ an auto show (like the Benz VGT)

    I'm sad because they doesn't have interiors too but I've used to study car design for some time (huge enthusiast of it) and from what I know, its a long process. They wouldn't release something crap. There's the whole brand image involved in this.

    And PD didn't know this when they said that we'll get one car per month? When they teased the Mercedes with interiors?

    That is a fantastic looking automobile. It really captures the essence of the "Batmobile" CSL without being over-the-top retro.

    It looks really great but only from outside. I like the fact that you can tune it to your needs. I dislike the locked transmission though.
    Besides of these downsides, it handles great as well.

    It's a damn shame it can't be purchased or at least painted in any of the other BMW colours in the game.

    So what PP is the car? What can be tuned, what parts can be added? Change wheels, paint body?

    Beautiful car, but much less aggressive than the initial concept, I'm a little bit disappointed, I was hoping for something more unconventional and 'extreme' :p

    PD's fault for using GT as a marketing franchise. But that aside, they clearly have a concept of an interior once again. A really simple cockpit like this is all I demand personally, a steering wheel, a small display to show RPM/gear/speed and the shape of a dashboard around it. Would still feel much more immersive than this weird static black box surrounding you while you watch the track driving around you, which is how I feel in current 'standard' cockpit view at least.

    I agree that we really need those interiors to add immersion, etc... and it would make the projects more believable. But I disagree that they're using Vision GT purely as a marketing exercise. It's something to celebrate the game 15th birthday and it's really huge to get the car manufacturers involved in this way with the game. Car design is a really expensive area inside manufacturers (if not one of the most expensive) and having they interested and involved is amazing specially if you enjoy car design.

    Of course it works as a marketing tool, but I doubt the main idea is this.

    So huge that the second one took six months to appear.

    Yeah, manufacturers are rushing towards PD with new concepts all the time, they are struggling to see who will be the next. There was a battle between dozens of designers to discover what brand would be featuring an incomplete design in the game this month. And in november, six months for now.

    I'm SO glad I was wrong about VGT.
