    Nobody talks about the Ford GT GT3 ?
    That would add a bit of variety.

    Just to give some feedback based on questions in this thread: We are obviously already building the 4 remaining cars. All of them are modern GT3 cars, all different manufacturers. That's about all we can and want to say at this point. With official licensing we also have to comply with manufacturer approval processes before we can disclose any details. So why did we release this pack now? Because we obviously had to release the McLaren 650S GT3 for the competition and we wanted to give people the option of just buying that one, or the whole pack. It's a leap of faith for sure if you order the pack. If you don't feel comfortable doing that, just wait until we release the full pack in September. The price for the pack will not change.

    Just 2 requests:
    1 - endurance lights
    2 - set a fixed price for other countries, the price is fluctuating here in Brazil, very few cents for now tho, was R$55,13 at release, went to R$55,25 yesterday and it is now R$55,20. Stock market feelings lol

    The previous Ford GT (2005?) turned up in GT1, GT2 and GT3! Not really factory efforts though.
    The new GT is very much a factory program, and it's been extended through at least 2019. But no known plans for anything other than the GTE car at the moment.

    Thanks for the update.
    Are you able to make any comment re: fixed car setups - regarding how things may be updated over time?
    I've purchased the GT3 pack & worst case - if I personally don't like the way the cars drive - I'm happy to support S397 as a developer. As is, I have a couple of personal niggles with the McLaren.

    Is it likely that the car setups will be more customisable after the WFG events have been completed?
    ...or does the McLaren as is reflect the cars normal setup in real life and it will stay the way it is now over the long term?

    ...what I'm getting at is my earlier comments re: the fixed steering ratio, the fixed gearbox ratios and having more tyre compounds available.
    I appreciate you've got other priorities in the immediate future - but I'm curious how things may develop or get updated over time :)
    I'm not sure how close the McLaren's current setup is to the real world - you would know that far better than me.
    Thanks!

    The japanese supergt gt300 class has some nice possibilities for gt3 class cars as well (cough prius cough). Although the different tires used over there compared to gt3 could make it hard to balance the speeds unless you swapped the tires so all gt3 class used the same ones. But gt3 class cars do run with the gt500 in supergt so there is a multiclass option there too.

    We should have a sweepstake on what the cars may be.
    Based on existing licencing I have gone for Nissan GT-R Nismo, Renault Sport RS-01, Acura (Honda) NSX, Corvette Callaway C7, Radical RXC. Remember we also have the Camaro which should be updated to BOP as well. Yes I picked 5 (but 4 of these are likely) Acura is less likely IMHO

    I would buy the Acura as a stand alone if it was the same price as the Mclaren.

    With the McLaren, it was added to the game via an update. Because I didn't download anything once I purchased the pack, it simply just said "subscribed". So it'll add all of the paid DLC cars to the game but will do a check to see if you actually own it before you can use it. This will ensure that even people without the car can see it and race against it online.

    They are modern gt3s,so any guess really,because how modern defines the range of cars.
    I'm guessing an Audi R8,merc sls,Lambo and Ferrari

    I went for the pack rather than just the Macca.
    I am confident the rest will be good as IMO the GT1, 2 and 3 cars from ISI are superb.
    The Macca is very good.
    I also felt it was time to throw some money to the Studio. I bought the lifetime license 5-6 years ago and have >1000 hrs up of amazing driving.
