Rumortoid: MACH 5 in GT5?

I was sitting reading my issue of Road n Track (yes, I have a free subscription to road N track). And there's a write-up for everyones favorite car ever the Mach 5. which they treat as a ‘real’ road test of a pretend car, with some tech info from the movie:
8 liter turbo V-12, 1700 bhp, 8 speed manual transmission, 0-1/4 mile 2.6 sec, top speed 305 mph…..
But then what peaked my interest, the thank yous at the end of the article-

“Special thanks to Warner Bros. Studios for supplying the car; Yokohama Tire Co. for their support arranging the photo shoot; Willow Run Airport for renting us a hangar, and Polyphony Digital Inc. for creating a virtual simulation of the Mach 5 that we used for our performance tests.”

Now why would Polyphony work up a simulation just for a car magazine? Unless it already had one ready. Not that GT5 will be anywhere near ready for the movie debut and some kind of tie-in. But featuring what could possibly be the worlds most famous car whenever GT5 is released wouldn’t hurt sales.

My assesment: Enjoy your Mach 5 PStriple'ers.   read
