    I don't think it's the Caterham, it's far enough out that the headlight would be obvious but there is nothing. The other one is possible, although the fairing over the wheel seems smaller/further back on that real photo.

    Hell, it could even be a Panoz! But more likely something JDM

    I think that the best bet it's the Honda Project 2&4

    Actually that honda concept sounds plausible, PD is certainly no stranger to concept cars and it kind of vaguely fits with the lower tier N class cars.

    The car does remind me of an ariel atom. However think back when we were all looking through the VGT cars in gt6. The ones that were not yet released had concept images of most of them, and fords concept image was an open wheeler.

    What, no love for the Chappy call? :lol:

    I get the elephant in the room, and I was waiting for the point to be raised.
    Why would the 2X be in a field with a GT86 and a Pug 208?.

    But considering many seem happy to consider the Ford VGT, then unless we are assuming the Ford is an extremely low powered machine, I'm not sure why the Chappy should be instantly ruled out.

    So that leads me to another question.
    Should we be considering the Ford VGT as a candidate?
    Honestly, it would be my second call, but it's still (I assume) a strange car to be running in that field.

    Because it doesn't have exposed suspensions

    ...What car is that? Looks the closest to me, the angle of the coil over dampers, the placement of the rear view mirror, the front tires with no coverings.

    Is it that experimental Honda whatnot?

    Honda Project 2&4. I can't see it being any other car now honestly. Looking forward to seeing it in action, irl and in-game.

    Let's not mix things up. Having one or two road tracktoy cars, does not mean there will be any "open wheelers". Open wheelers are meant to be formula cars, not any road car or jeep or buggy that happens to have no wheel arches. Open wheelers as a class is something very different than a Caterham.

    This is very true, when Kaz said to VVV that there would be no open wheelers he obviously meant F1 like racers, having whatever this is in the game doesn't suddenly mean they've changed their mind and there will be a "formula GT" class or anything.

    By seeing the photos, I would vote for the Honda, but not without giving my option, the Polaris Slingshot :D[​IMG]

    What do you mean?

    No, I wasn't suggesting this car to be part of the game, I was just guessing maybe the mysterious car could be this.

    It's not one of these by any chance?

    I know you can't see the indicator lights, but could that be a LOD issue? Suspension looks right and wheel width looks right.

    Yellow shocks is the main issue, which could be a reflection or perhaps a visual tuning upgrade?

    If the overpowered car in the field theory is actually true, then there's most likely going to be an overtaking challenge of some sort.

    Disclaimer: This is all assumption

    Maybe multiclass racing?

    Only way i see the toyota overtaking the atom is on top speed, but i'm just talking out of my butt with that statement. i don't know the cars specifics to make that judgment. :p
