Re: The Essential GT Car List

Sep 17, 2012

Thank you, yes again, to those who are posting nominations as requested.   We are really really trying to be tolerant, trying to accomodate variations on a theme, but to be fair to all, and make this list easy to maintain, please please please could everybody post nominations in the format requested.

See the original post for more information.


Three easy parts:


1. A small list like this.

Manufacturer: Holden

Car: LX Torana SS A9X Hatchback , Holden Dealer Team #05 1979  (please put the year so we don't have to search for it)

Country: Australia


2. A picture.


3. An explanation of why you think it should be in the game.  A list of specs can be a useful addition but doesn't count as an explanation.


Without a reasonable attempt at #3 your nomination just may not make it to the Parking Lot list.


Thank you to all for your cooperation.

Re: The Essential GT Car List

Sep 21, 2012

Manufacturer : Ferrari

Model and Year(s) : 125 S 1947

Race Series or Class if relevant : road/race car

Country of Origin (some may be considered international) : Italy



Historical Significance

the first ever Ferrari built.

it has a tiny 1.5L V12 (yes a 1.5L V12) pumping a MEGA 100HP @ 7000 RPM.

only 2 were ever built. The 125 S won six of its fourteen races in 1947.


Is the car desirable to collectors?



Would the car be at home on the racing track?



Does your car belong to an identifiable category such as (but not limited to) Vintage, Classic, Art, Concept, or Truck?

vintage classic

All essential cars are in this list. Adorable post. I'd consider all those cars driven by the AI (cars with names over them) in the demo, as drivable. You did they same for the cars the AI drove in the trailer. I also doubt you would be racing against cars it would be impossible to access yourself.

Welcome to the GT forum. DarylCooper1!


There is a lot of good information, conversation (some might call it drama) and racing for you here, and we all hope you participate in things like our Essential lists.

Manufacturer: Ford SVT

Model: Shelby GT500 (2013)

Country of Origin (American)

Seeing as this is probably the cheapest production car to break the 200MPH mark I feel it should be put in, plus it's a beautiful looking and sounding car. Also it would compliment a completely lacking group of Fords in the game.

2013 Shelby GT500

Oh and also, if you need any more help making your mind up here

Actually, Oz, I have a request, if it's possible.


I would like to request the removal of one of my nominations: The SSC Ultimate Aero XT.


If the standard Aero isn't in the game, there's no reason to request a more specific model, in my mind.


Gojet-64 is now Encvell. (Gojet-64 is now only used for older games and Vita)

I also nominate the 2013 Ford Mustang GT500.. there's no arguement this car needs to be added to GT5 car list ASAP


Not to mention any 2011+ 5.0L Mustang GT, Boss 302/302R/Laguna Seca and even Cobra Jet models to give GT5 players something newer in the Ford Mustang camp than the old 2007 Mustang GT.
