    The more GT cars the better! Hopefully production of these cars will ramp up soon, seems like at the current pace it won’t meet the deadline!

    • Big Ron

      If I read correctly, they are starting to outsource parts of the vehicle moddeling to get a better pace. The Mustang is from an external company, for example.

        I thought you might get a kick out of this one.
        The down voter is getting slow and almost seems to have lost a step this thread was unmolested for 1 whole day I think that’s a new record

        I think the down voter is an 8 year old kid who’s parents refused to give him the 3 extra euro for his Jr. tool pack for not mowing the lawn and by the time he did mow the lawn it was too late. Funding was closed.

      • Big Ron

        Maybe he found a job finally 😀

      • Tom Hunt

        That’s good, It’s kind of concerning how many cars have been announced for so long yet not started.

  • Alejandro Gorgal

    1989 Sauber C9

    Dear god YES!

    • Ken Izuchukwu

      ~401 km/h~
      CLK LM vs Toyota GT-One… just bring it!

  • Roger

    Great news!

  • Markus Ott

    Mother of god.
    Sauber C9
    2012 DTM Mercedes
    1990 190E Evo II to race against the BMW E30
    And the CLK-LM

  • YETIsaj

    Great list……although, I would have been happy with just the C9. Its my all time favorite race car. I really hope they get the sound right on this monster.

    • Alejandro Gorgal

      Looks like they are bringing a bigger sound team now so it’s very likely!

  • Wesley Modderkolk

    When I read it first I was shocked. The Sauber C9?! Really? That is amazing! It’s like my dream car I never think of lol, can’t wait to drive it in game.

  • Steve Shears

    More good news is the financial situation (related to the Eurogamer article) appears to have been resolved.

  • Guilherme Cramer

    The C9 means I’ll have to purchase the final game, not just “invest” in it.

  • Diromo

    Awesome list

    Ya okay If they were to post all the news of the day @WMD the virtualr site might crash so we offer you this one small tidbit on the days events. If you are a member @WMD it is important you go log in and catch up on the very important info we have been given today. Oh and we are good to go as far as FSA is concerned.

  • Chris Wright

    Attention all modders/developers reading this. You only have to see how popular the reaction to the C9 is to know that a decent Group C sim would be so very popular. Yes I know Virtua LM is working on one, but when, oh when?

    • Daniel Neil Marr

      MMK are working on a few cars as part of their classic mod.

      • Wesley Modderkolk

        “Yes I know Virtua LM is working on one, but when, oh when?” I think this applies to MMK even more

    • Marco Hooghuis

      I don’t think they’ll ever finish it. Well, not before rFactor 9 is out.

  • Markus Ott

    There’s only one car missing to make this list even better:
    1993 or 1994 Sauber Mercedes F1

  • Ernie

    My jaw is still on the floor.
    Awesome car list. Great job, SMS.

  • Ricoo

    Nice. Congratulation SMS

  • James Capper

    hope their gonna do this with ferrari and honda ……I’me thinking a few more 67 tracks combined with the 312 and the ra300 we can hold some proper 1960’s Online Races

    • Anonymous

      … and cooper, brm, brabham, AAR, matra and mclaren (though mclaren less important for that era).

      They only have lotus, there is a lot more needed so far. And that’s before we talk about limited number of historical tracks and their accuracy.

      Sadly i can’t see it happening 🙁

      Also, if you have a whole mercedes license it seems a big waste to have no W25, W125 or W154. Sad really 🙁

    I don’t know about you all but me I personally love this game and I will not be seeking a refund or payments for that matter. Just gonna keep rolling it over into future projects to build a retirement fund.

  • Jason Ganz

    Mercedes-Benz sounds WAY better than Staro-Motors…. just three to go… Pirault, Racer, and Asano…. And then the real-world cars will be completed!

  • Mitos

    Great! And DTM W204`2008 pls!)…
