Straight4 CEO Ian Bell, shared two new GT Revival WIP screenshots showcasing two Group C cars in action on the Brazilian Autódromo José Carlos Pace, better known as Autódromo de Interlagos.
Ian Bell always stated that GT Revival would be an homage to racing and racing simulators through the years. However, when Straight4 shared the cockpit of an Audi Sport R8 GT3 car, as the first ever in-game screenshot of the upcoming title, many community members feared that GT Revival would be yet another GT3-based racing simulator. Somewhat later, Straigh4 debunked those fears, showcasing an in-game Image of a classic Ferrari 550 GTS, as raced in the 2001 FIA GT Championship.
I am sure the fans of historic endurance cars will be delighted to see that the latest in-game screenshots reveal a Jaguar XJR-9 and Nissan R89C Group C car.
The R89C is a Group C sports car prototype that was built by Nissan in 1989 to compete in the World Sportscar Championship and the All Japan Sports Prototype Championship. It was designed by Lola Cars and powered by a Nissan VRH35 twin-turbocharged V8 engine. made its debut at the 1989 24 Hours of Le Mans, where it finished 14th overall. It went on to win the Fuji 500 Mile Race and the Fuji 1000 Kilometer Race later that year.
The Jaguar XJR-9 is a sports-prototype race car built by Jaguar for both FIA Group C and IMSA Camel GTP racing, debuting at the 1988 24 Hours of Daytona. The car was developed by Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) and powered by a 7.0-liter Jaguar V12 engine. The XJR-9 was a highly successful car, winning the 1988 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 1988 World Sportscar Championship, and the 1989 IMSA Camel GTP Championship.
Alongside the new screenshots, Ian Bell also shared an updated GT Revival Logo design. Keep in mind that all the media, including the logo, represent a work in progress.
If all goes as planned, the GT Revival racing simulator will become available for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. Straight4 Studios is aiming for a 2024 release.
