Mazda Furai color rarity

12 replies 667 views Edited Aug 23, 2012

I regret to ask this question  but here  it goes anyway.....I know there are several colors available but  last night during a level 23 ticket flip I discovered a dark metallic grey one with red accents on the tail fin, the scoop on the roof, and around the rear lights....it almost looks like te real thing.... is this one the harder to find version?

 

Ilook forward to the answrs of my highly educated friends......SWERV_GRIFFIN among them.......

Yep it's a furai. I've got two in red/black and once before on my old ps3 I had the gold paint version.

Not sure if this helps but, best I can do :-/

That one is the Furai Prototype. The " Dark Gray" is how the car was first shown in 2008 in Detroit according to Wikipedia

 

( grain of salt, no extra chargeSmiley LOL)

 

. A noteworthy detail is that there is no color named above.

 

Or so I was told somehere else on the GoogleTubes. I can't find the quote right now, so you'll have to believe my report of something that was reported on the Interwebs.

 

We ALL know that everything on the Interwebs is true...........Smiley Very Happy

 

I can personally attest to the fact that it IS rare. I flipped Tickets and got one, accidentally restored over it , and it took forever to get another one in that color scheme. I do once again have one in 0.0 Miles condition.

I still have yet to get one in Gran Turismo Green Metallic, or as I like to call it " Money Green", Son.Smiley Wink

It's not luck, it lots of time-consuming hard work. On my main account, I am flipping (over 20) LVL 23 Tickets. It takes an unbelieveable amount of time to go through them and then reset, just to do it all again. The Furai in any color is very rare to ever show up, let alone in a color that I don't yet have.

 

Colors that I have ( so far)  on my SWERV_GRIFFIN Account:

 

Prototype -Color not officially named ( Semi-Gloss Dark Gray with Red Accents )

 

Gran Turismo Black

 

Gran Turismo Red

 

Gran Turismo Blue Metallic

 

Gran Turismo  White Pearl

 

Gran Turismo Silver

 

Still looking for:

 

Gran Turismo Green Metallic

 

Gran Turismo Yellow

I got a the Concept one by running the "B" spec race. The Miata race I believe. No flipping needed.

After getting the  "prototype" the last one I need is the "blue" one....I got the lovely shade of green first and  either bought them at the dealer or ticket flip.......I use a different method  then SWERV, do one level 23 a night and see what comes up....have a lovely Audi collection along witheFurai's..........this pursuit helps me build my colored R8 LMS as well......

 

SWERV....thanks for the color info asit helps me with the search..........you're a great resource.

No. I believe its on the second set of B-specs races. I just did it a few days ago. I think its the N-RA race, IIRC.

 

Yeah, getting these non-tradeable cars in all colors would definately be a huge PITA. Goodonya for having the patience to flip. I tried once for about 5 cycles and said," screw this!"
