Rumortoid: MACH 5 in GT5?

   0
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.

Bring me... the bore worms



'You are not dealing with a student here, You're dealing with the Professor. Any time the military has an operation that can't fail, they call this guy in to train the troops, OK? He's the kind of guy that would drink a gallon of gasoline so he could piss in your campfire! You could drop this guy off at the Arctic Circle wearing a pair of bikini underwear, without his toothbrush, and tomorrow afternoon he's going to show up at your pool side with a million dollar smile and fist full of pesos. This guy's a professional, you got me?'
