    This is awesome! I really hope this means three things:

    • GT40
    • Ford GT
    • Shelby GT500 (since they made the cobra official as well)
    But I'd be willing to bet there's one we will get for sure.
    • Fiesta ST

    Sweet, I'd also like to see a Capri as well as the GT GT3 and maybe the FR500 too. Beyond that the back catalogue of Ford is massive so there's plenty of classics to go at.

    I'm all for the ZaKspeed Capri, these were a blast in rF1, especially when up against BMW 320 Turbo's great battles from the DTM revival.
    Another hot Capri would be the V8 Perana, 4.9ltr small block.....Sick fun

    Slowest Racer in Town...

    There was already a thread about this, here on this forum, yesterday morning. Where did it go?
  11. seriously why do people want slow cars like escorts etc... hope they go for gt40, fg v8 supercar
  12. Screw things like the Fiesta ST, let those silly Hoodie wearing urchins go without. We need classic Ford. Mk1, 2, 3 escort, Sierra Rs500 cosworth, Capri Rs, Cortina mk 3, Granada mk1.
    And a collection of mustangs from across the board. from the old gt350 and to the modern gt500kr's

    And to the person above, the answer is simple. They were the cars we owned, affordable racers..

  16. Escort RS slow :) are you kidding? its a Legend
  17. Let me assure you that the Grp. A RS500 is anything but "slow"...

    In true group a spec, it's 2+ bar turbo pressure and around 560 horses. It's a monster.

    Same for the "prototype" spec Capris. They were CRAZY :)

    In contrast, the V8 supercar spec is quite slow, due to weighing like a school bus.

    After the Eggenberger Grp A, next on my wish list, a car i have personally owned and raced: Escort Mk2. :)

  18. Great great great news!!!

    I would love to see the ZaKspeed Capri, but I think they need another license for it.
    I think they need a deal with ZaKspeed.

    The license for Cosworth historic cars are included in this deal? As Cosworth is now a independent company, does Ford has rights for Ford Cosworth cars?

    Maybe they should try to include one of the Jaguar or Stewart F1 cars :p but again there is other company rights involved. If they have Ford Cosworth license, they should create a generic F1 car powered by it. Maybe a fake 1988 Benetton.
  19. There are so many classic and great vintage ford race cars. So many amazing choises. I seriously hope they do not just pick 2014 models of various cars every game already has. It would be a tragedy if all the fords were just modern cars... Ford has amazing racing history that equals the likes of ferraris and porsches and it would be sad if kunos did not choose any vintage racecars.
