    I was looking through some pictures and discovered a mystery Open Wheeled car in a GT Sport picture.
    it is quite well hidden behind the Peugeot 208. Can anyone help me identify what car it is?

    Closest I can think of is an Atom 3.5R

    Wrong class for the Ariel don't you reckon, the Ariel would monster these everyday cars?

    As would an LMP monster some of the cars we've seen on track with them. It's GT, anything is possible.
  7. ...I'll laugh my head off if it turns out to be nothing more than some old tires stacked together as a trackside decoration.

    That appears to be up on the racing surface.
  9. ...Hey, you never know - it could be a glitch from the work-in-progress build the trailer is edited from.

    As far as glitches go, yes, I've seen some ridiculous stuff over the years.

    Only thing that I can think off that fits the bill is the Aerial atom, and the large horizontal thing is the rear wing

    It's a weird one, PD don't do social engagement so it wouldn't really be like them to throw in open wheelers like this and see if people notice, not really their style. The wing mirror of the Pug throws you off a bit but it definitely looks like a wheel with a fairing, a small, round headlight and a yellow suspension arm.

    At a long shot it could be one of the unreleased VGT, like the Daihatsu.


    The large horizontal thing is the wing mirror of the Pug. It got me to start with, you have to look closely to notice which bits are still the Pug, and which are the thing behind it.

    Oh yeah you're correct, well this is impossible now. Could still be an atom or a new VGT but no way to tell for sure.

    So going from the visual clues (suspension geometry mainly) and the fact it's in such a low performance category I'm gonna guess it's a Caterham, unsure which power output but it seems to fit well.
  15. ...Actually, now that I've paid a bit more attention, it might be (could be) an unreleased VGT. Initially, I thought there's a decent chance that it might be a Caterham, but I can sort of see the other front wheel right below the Pug's lower grille, and for me the track width is too wide for it to be a Seven.

    Ideally, I'd like it to be an Ariel, but then the dark bit just above where the seats should be throws me off.

    So, a good chance that it's an unfinished, as-yet-to-be-announced VGT from someone.

    For a comparison, here's a pic of a Seven.

    Maybe PD picked up this concept -

    But my guess is on Nike VGT.

    Maybe it's the Tramontana R?

  24. Probably the Caterham Fireblade that's been in GT since 4.

    I don't know what it could be. They could just do the same like GT4 and get some cars like these: toyo.jpg nike.jpg

    My best guess is that it's an Ariel Atom, though a Vision GT is a good guess too.

    this also happened along the time gt6 came out, might just be an lod glitch.
