Hah, yes! There's the good-looking Impreza in there!

Anyways, this can't be the full car list. I know I saw a classic Dodge Challenger in one of the publicity screenshots. And what happened to the S14? Wasn't that supposed to be in there?

Very nice list of tracks and cars, though i do have some problems.

Questions:
- The M3 GT2 & Falken Mustang - can we customize these?
- Why did you ad a Scion? WHY?!?!?!?!?!?
- Why do we still have concepts, i can understand the LF-A, but the Challenger concept when the actuall vehicle has been out for 2 years and (in my mind at least) looks better?

Cars i would have liked...
- '69 Charger
- Toyota Supra (even though i hate Toyota in general)
- 2010 z4 instead of the old one

But overall i am extremely pleased. Especially knowing that Nordschleife is on the track list, I LOVE THAT TRACK!!!!
Shift is sounding better everyday! We even get a Maserati & the Reventon!!
The power,
the glory
of having a fast Volvo?

Awesome car list and quite a few surprises. Lots of European cars too. Curious, they managed to get a Maserati in but no Ferrari?

Nooooooo... No NSX or Supra :(

S14 is in their as the UK 200SX model. Should be an S14a going by the year.

I would like to see a Lexus/Toyota SC/Soarer as I own one, but I don't think they'll put it in. Oh well it's in Grid anyway.

Maserati? Where do you see one?

Atominist wrote:Nooooooo... No NSX or Supra :(

I agree, quite the loss. This would be the first NFS game since before Underground that hasn't had a Supra. I really hope they have DLC for Shift.

EDiT
Just noticed the Maserati.

I like the carlist. Though I'd add some other cars.

And that Lexus LF-A :shock:

Nice car list. :D

There are some additions there that I really like. The SEAT being one of them, I just love the Cupra! And the Maserati MC12 GT1, Mazda MX-5, Lamborghini Reventon, Impreza, etc. :D

I just miss the old american muscle, like Cuda, Camaro SS, Dodge Challenger, etc. It would be cool do to some races with those beasts. But yeah, overall it's a really good car list, even though the Supra is missing. Maybe we will get good DLCs to expand to more cars?

PS: I still want to see a Ferrari there... I guess it's not this year. God damn it lol...

Pretty decent carlist, with some very nice cars.... but like most NFS games 80% is recycled stuff (some times just to many times without changing to a better version)

Things I don't get:
why didn't they get the right version of these:

- '07 Ford Focus ST ----> '09 Ford Focus RS (way better car and better looking... same series but better car)
- Honda Civic SI ---> Honda Civic Type-R (JDM version, better looking, faster the the US version in every way)

2 Audi 4 series (same generation) they added a S4 and a RS4.... yet again just recycled the ProStreet list.. still don't get why they got them both when the RS4 is better in every way.
Replace the S4 with a RS6 or something, or something older a S2 perhaps.


There is so little that is really new....not the the cars that where in prev games where bad... but a bit more new stuff added on top would be so much nicer.

The car I'm most excited about is the Falken Mustang (driven by Vaughn Gittin Jr in Formula Drift), this thing is a 750bhp monster.

Those 2 cars are totally different though. And I'm sorry but the North American Civic is 10x nicer than the European version. We actually have a new '09 Civic Coupe, which is the closest we'll get to the SI and it's nice-looking car. :P

This is... cool? I really like the car list. But it seems like their trying to cram a large variety of cars in such a small car list... If there's one Formula D car, there should be quite a few. Same goes with the GT racecars. But I suppose you can always build your own full blown race/drift cars...

I agree with Stig on some of the car choices... There are many better alternatives. And I much rather have an E30 rather than a E36... And I thought there was gonna be more cars in the 2000GT-R era... But there isn't. :(

As for the tracks... I am totally satisfied. :) Nordschleife! Called it!

We've gone over this... It was the new Challenger in that screen shot. And the S14 is there (200SX). :)

The S14 wasn't there when I first looked at the list, it must've gotten added in later.

And yeah, I remember the discussion about the Challender now.

This is so far been one of the best lists of cars for NFS that i can think of....

...but there could have been a lot more they could have added too.. like all the old muscle would have been nice and maybe a few cars from Australia too lol

But thats me being hopeful lol

Nice tracks they got here :D
hang on... how fast did you say i went again officer??
