Re: The GT5 Car Wishlist

Neither of those pics look like a true factory street version.  Still, that's all I'm saying.  I'd like to see either a correct G.T. 350 or a G.T. 350R (preferable the street version and as I mentioned, a 66' with a Paxton supercharger (just 11 built, though it was also added as a dealer add on option as well) would be my choice) instead of some hybrid of both.  The G.T. 350 is my favorite classic car and I hope PD gets it right.

I'm pretty certain the 1965 G.T. 350R will be in the game, based on it being in both GT4 and GT PSP.  That said, the car is incorrect in both versions.  First of all the horsepower is the same in the game as it would have been for the street version, when in fact the R version was tuned for more power.  Also, it is wrong cosmetically as well.  The R version has the large rear air vents removed in favor of Plexiglas side windows.

This is a GT4 Shelby 350R:


This is a real one (if hot-linking images is allowed), of which 36 were built:




However, this is a plain 350 (if you can call any Shelby plain):


So it looks as if the Shelby in GT is more like the plain old 350, not the R model, with the 350's power and the R's front fascia. A weird combo.

That's because the two images that you could see were not the street version.

The blocked image is now replaced with a normal GT350 showing the front end.

Yes, that is a sweet looking car.  That's what I want to see in the game.

I just wanted to set the record straight with what you were talking about.
I don't think I've ever seen the Shelby put under a microscope before.

Regardless, "All Mustangs" are at the top of the want list, so that would include other rare versions such as the Hertz cars.

Cheers,

Whatever ends up in the game, is what you'll either need to accept or not.  The Bottom Line is that Kazonouri Yamauchi designs the game and selects the cars - each of nearly 1,000 that are to be in GT5.  His wisdom and knowlege of motor vehicles is extraordinary. He is the complete perfectionist in his goals to provide us with realism.  So if a particular model of car is not as perfect as others think it should be, then shame on them. With everything that is included in the game, we should not be so critical of what he provides us, IMO. The subtleties that you are spaeking about are those that only the very hard core Shelby Aficianados would notice. This is a game that spans 11 decades of the automobile, it's history and memorable versions of different manufacturers. Please try keep in mind that Kaz Yamauchi is building a racing sim and wants to reach the masses, not a hard core Shelby expert. You and I will be awed by this next generation of GT when it is released, I have no doubt.:smileyhappy:
