    Wonderful, new content - when are we going to see some enhancements to the base game, cough UI, cough AI, cough realism of cockpit lights. too many things lagging here

    Who doesn't love an Aston Martin? FOOLS that's who!

    Great addition to a Great Pack of cars and Le Mans and Sebring and Bathurst (just because) and <insert your fave track here>!

    Bring it on.

    I just hope, and I know I'll get TONS of disagree, that they stop with this GT only content. GT3, GTE, I know they're not really the same, but they are similar, both part of the modern GT family.

    We have 2 GT3 packs and 4 GTE cars, for a total of 14, FOURTEEN cars. And they're probably going to license the GT4 cars, so even more GT cars, like there is the need for more GT.
    I mean, there is a lot out there, other than GT. F1, TCR, DTM, historic just to tell 4

    The GT I'd like to see? GT1 from late 90s

    Oh, I forgot to mention the Group C, which is historic, but deserves to be mentioned

    I think I might be in the minority here but I would like even more GT3 cars. I love the variety in the field. I appreciate that's not a popular opinion.

    A new UI I can get behind, but cockpit lights against new content? Aren't you being a little petty?

    I'm a real RF2 fan, but think ratio of paid content vs base game updates is getting further and further diluted

    On first glance, that model looks markedly better than their GT3 counterpart. Hope to see some close up pics with the cockpit too, hope that is a huge improvement also.

    I guess this means that I wont be able to race the other GTE cars I bought online anymore unless I buy this new car?

    Same. What gets boring is driving these cars on the same tracks (most of Blancpain schedule) but if you take them on tracks like VIR it's super fun. What S397 really need is tracks! Especially from US and Australia
    Plus I want to race IMSA and rF2 is the only sim that offers everything that series needs at this moment (except for class order pit open under fcy) so we need some more GTs and the DPi too

    I don't even know anymore what "soon" means to S397...Still waiting for that new UI and Nordschleife.

    This is what I meant. We already have 10 GT3s and 4 GTEs. I understand that the GTE field is not complete, but the GT3, there are 10, you really need others?:roflmao:

    To be fair they just released a number of tatuus open wheel cars for free plus the older Mclaren formula cars and then there is the formula E so it certainly isn't all GT cars! The more cars in one class the better for me for variety!

    I was hoping it would still be the old model... ah well, any Aston Martin is better than none. Now I'm hoping for some more historic content :redface:

    Yes, but looking at the future I think the GT4 class will be introduced (in the interview Marcel said that one between GT4 and TCR was coming, tbh I see the GT4 more likely to come since it seems more popular). So in that case even more GTs:roflmao:
