  2. "standard cars won't have interiors, which is a bit sad, but there are, like, 800 of them"

    from Eurogamer after talking to Kaz'

    *sad smiley face*

    so only 200 cars actually have interiors, hmmmm. the standard cars he talks of are the cars from previous GT games, so that's the lot from GT4 and GT:PSP, which have all been upscaled and polished but not interiors. i do wonder if they will have a standard type in-car view as in GT:PSP which is nothing more than an outline of the screen/side window.

  3. from Kotaku:

    There are over one thousand cars, divided into two classes: Standard and Premium. The standard classes are GT favorites like the Lamborghini Countach or the Ford Mustang. The Premium cars are newer automobiles like the Ferrari Enzo or the Lamborghini Gallardo. Those Premium cars will be the only ones that will featured "panel separation" and deformation. The developers have created fully modeled interiors for the Premium cars, as well as doing detailed modeling for the car's undercarriage and even the exhaust pipes! The Standard cars apparently won't have the exact interior modeling. For example, an Enzo's interior will look like the real deal, but your typical Mustang's will look like exactly like Mustang's.

    The level of detail, Yamauchi admits, might be "too much" and better suited for the next PlayStation. The developers even reproduced the graffiti from the Nurburgring tracks — something that is very much part of that track's tradition. And the team has been trying to keep the in-game graffiti as up-to-date as possible before it ships. (No, it will not feature the profane graffiti!)
