Forza 5: Aston Martin Vanquish



This is the Aston Martin Vanquish and this is probably one of my favorite Aston Martins up to this date. To me, this is by no means one of the most beautiful machines ever made because this car, between you and me, blends the elements from the two defunct Aston Martins; the hardcore DBS and the softer Virage. Unfortunately for me, this car made me as silly as the dog from the Beggin' Strips commercial.



It may not be quite a direct competitor against the world's modern grand tourers, especially the Italians such as the Ferrari F12 and the Lamborghini Aventador, but the "Power, Beauty, and Soul" is what made the Vanquish a pure Aston Martin. I know it maybe a DBS replacement borrowing some design elements from the million-dollar One-77 supercar but this car is worth begging to have the driver, especially those playing FM5 on their X1, to be on the driver's seat of this car.





It maybe lovely on the road but it's not brilliant on the track because it feels a bit dynamic for a beautiful car of this magnitude. It takes a gentle driving style to master it and when you do, this is the car that treats you with care, no matter the circumstances you're been. No wonder this car sustained the least shots in the game of Aerial Laser Tag but no matter. This is still the best Aston yet by a long way.

What's in our Car Town garage today?

2004 Ford Mustang FR500S

This Mustang-based race car was driven by Eric Foss from Capaldi Racing for the 2011 Pirelli World Challenge season and this muscle car's quite a contender on the track. The FR500S is a mid-range track-only version that slots between the "Boy Racer" FR500C and the top-of-the-line "Man Racer" FR500GT. It uses the same V8 engine as the normal Mustang but uses a lot of track-honed essentials. Normally, it was built for use in a one-make race series but since it was ended, the Mustang was homologated for the World Challenge.

1955 Lincoln Futura

This is a concept car from Ford's Lincoln luxury brand that follows the same flow of the cars from the 50's and it's essentially based from the Lincoln Mark II. There's a well known fact that this car became the basis of the Batmobile from the classic Batman TV series starring Adam West as Batman. POW!

1977 Ferrari 308 GTS

The 308 GTS is the targa-top equivalent of the 308 GTB hardtop coupe. This car became famous for being the car of choice of everyone's favorite crime-fighting detective, Magnum P.I. This memorable and iconic berlinetta is powered by a 2.9L Tipo V8 engine which, in its hardtop equivalent, can get a sub-6 second mark in its 0-60mph time.

The 599 features the same V12 engine that was used on the limited-run Enzo Ferrari and it comes with a host of F1 technology, making it track-focused while being usable on the road. It features a very clever magnetorheological suspension to keep this car stuck on the road. It is a product from Ferrari's passion for motorsports.

Gran Turismo 6: A fitting tribute to the third-generation WRX STi



For many years, the WRX has become the pinnacle of the history of Subaru. From its God-given talent tried and tested for rally racing to the twists and turns at the Nurburgring, this Subie has been a favorite among Subarists everywhere.



According to some dealership print ads from Japan, the third-generation WRX STi will be phased out late February 2014 and some say, it will make room for the next model. However, we're not letting this third-generation STi go without a proper sendoff so here in GT6, a good send-off to the current and outgoing WRX STi, available in GR-spec hatchback and GV-spec sedan forms, lies to the question of...Which is the best of the third-generation STi? The winner will face off against...the last Subaru ever entered the WRC before its withdrawal from the World Rally Championship.



Here she is. Now all I have to do is to gather round four different flavors of the WRX STi and meet up at the Ascari.



First off, the GRB-spec hatchback STi. For a quick background, this car was launched at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show and sales of this model commenced moments later. Unlike its predecessors, which are comprised of high-performance saloons, the GRB WRX STi is a hatchback and this model do thrown a curve to the enthusiasts. Even though it's based on a hatchback Impreza, it's still a high-performance Subie that behaves just like its predecessors. Unlike the Evo X, this STi tries to be more of a comfortable car on the long road ahead rather than showing off its razor-sharp reflexes on the corners. Despite that, it sure loves to cut through corners even though this car was born from the rally bloodlines.

Two years later, a Spec C was offered and for this model, it sheds off 20kg of weight, making it a driver-focused WRX STi hatch that you can use it on the road or on the track. Anyway, can the 20kg advantage of the WRX STi Spec C do better?





These two STi hatches gave it a good thrashing round the Ascari and again, thanks to the Spec C's 20kg weight loss and the host of numerous improvements such as the sport-tuned chassis, it means it can scamper away from the standard model. The only downside is that since they wore hard tires, they can tend to understeer in some parts of the Ascari track. In just a few minutes later...I have the result...

GRB - 2:27.962
GRB Spec C - 2:26.473

The Spec C ate the normal STi before tea time in a second. So, what about the sedan models?



In response from numerous Subies because they still prefer the styling of the sedan because of its clean shape and long history as the top model of the Impreza, they unveiled the much-awaited 4-door version at the 2010 New York Auto Show and sales in Japan commenced in the Summer of 2010, just a few moments before Gran Turismo 5 hit stores late November 2010 after double delays. It may have the same mechanical stuff from the 5-door model but for this 4-door model, this is by no means the ultimate Subie ever made because it went round the Nurburgring in 7 minutes and 55 seconds. This Subaru managed to broke the 8-minute barrier at the fabled German race track and thanks to its sleek aerodynamic styling, it feels more well-balanced.

This Subie racked up class wins at the Nurburgring 24 Hour and to commemorate this achievement, STi made a special S206 NBR Challenge Package which features numerous upgrades including a carbon fiber roof and a rear spoiler. They even updated the engine so that now, it develops 315HP of power and this model is limited to 100 units, available exclusively to the Japanese market.





Both of them are track-focused and usable on the road. These two STi sedans sure knew how to shake it up in the midst of their prime and it's kinda odd because I thought the S206 NBR was supposed to be the swan song for this current-generation STi but in general, the tS Type RA is the real swan song. Anyway, while the tS Type RA is not here, it seems that the S206 NBR gave the normal STi sedan a good roasting and moments later, I have the time. Let's see...

GVB - 2:26.593
GVB S206 - 2:24.764

This leaves now to the Spec C hatchback and the S206 NBR saloon and now, let's move to the Brands Hatch GP Circuit to see which of these two will be facing off against the WRC 2008 rally car.



Look at these two, all primed up and pumped up for their one last vow. Remember, I'm using the GP version of the Brands Hatch just to add a little challenge to these two STi models. For an added twist; let's not forget that the Spec C hatchback is a few kilos lighter than the S206 NBR saloon but because this S206 NBR saloon has more power than the Spec C hatchback, I'd expect this to be more of a similarity.





In the first half of Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit, both of the Spec C hatchback and the S206 NBR Saloon are doing pretty well while in the latter half of the track, things are looking to get a bit more struggling and it seems that a small mistake from the Spec C's understeer cost two seconds behind the S206 NBR. After one lap, there can only be one winner...

GRB Spec C - 1:44.755
GVB S206 - 1:42.899

The GVB-spec Subaru S206 NBR Challenge Package is definitely the best of the third-generation WRX STis offered on GT6 but will it be enough to take on the Impreza WRC 2008 Rally Car?



To find out, I went to Monaco Cote d'Azur and this is where the stage is set for the ultimate send-off for our third-generation WRX STi. Who will triumph? Road car or rally car?





Both the S206 and the Impreza Rally Car are like playing a game of cat and mouse as while the rally car can outrun the S206 on a straight line, the S206 found some advantages when it faces a corner, sneaking past the Impreza rally car! As they approached to the final parts of the Monaco Cote d'Azur, it's a fight to the finish and it's kill or be killed.

In this kill or be killed match, the S206 came out a second slower than the Impreza rally car.

Impreza WRC 2008 - 1:47.664
GVB S206 - 1:48.421



So there we are, even though it came a second slower against the Impreza WRC 2008 Rally Car, I can therefore conclude that here on GT6, the S206 NBR CHALLENGE PACKAGE is the best of the third-generation WRX STi models. Now the only idea left for me is...how can I say goodbye to this and waiting for the new model to arrive in the Japanese market and in GT6 as well...

GT6: Cars that are Gran Turismo exclusive - Tommykaira ZZII



Today, it's a Tommykaira ZZ-II. To pick up where the lightweight ZZ-S left off, the folks at Tommykaira envisioned its successor and powered by the Tommykaira-tuned RB26DETT engine that you find in the Skyline GT-Rs of the 90's, this is more of Japan's half-decent supercar of the new millennium but sadly, the ZZII never seen the light of its day and then Autobacs took over for the Garaiya project.

The ZZII will run straight through the Goodwood Hillclimb but at what time will it post?









It posted a 0:49.320 lap time! Although it may look gaudy thanks to its gold wheels but the 550HP straight-six engine and 4WD drivetrain made it quite an astonishing performer! Perhaps this is the kind of car Japan would have made to compete against the Europeans if it saw the light in its day.

Your hopes of seeing this car in another game is zero because it has a Gran Turismo exclusivity on it.

The Ukrainian small car road trip is the highlight of the third episode of Top Gear Series 21 but first, the Danish supercar called the Zenvo ST1 was featured. This twincharged thousand-horsepower viking was tested by Jeremy Clarkson right until to the part where the Zenvo was literally set on fire. After that, The Stig set a lap time of 1:29.9 on a very wet lap.

Anyway, on to that Ukrainian small car road trip, Jeremy Clarkson goes for the VW up!, while Richard Hammond drives the brand new Ford Fiesta, and James May...finally realizing the dream by driving the brand new Dacia Sandero. Great news for him but bad news for them as they're driving their way to the nuclear-stricken Chernobyl.

GT6: Cars that are Gran Turismo exclusive - DOME ZERO



Today, let's take a look at what is was supposed to be Japan's first supercar known as the Dome Zero. A vision from the Kyoto-based racing team, the Dome Zero was introduced at the 48th Geneva Motor Show and they have high hopes to produce this car. However, government standards rejected Dome from producing it and this concept car remains a memory as of now. It's powered by a 2.8L 6-cylinder engine generating 142HP of power and because it weighs less than a ton, the power-to-weight ratio is 6.48kg/HP.

The Dome Zero will run through the Goodwood Hill Climb but what time will this car post on a wet lap?









It posted a 1:06.083 lap time on a wet track!

Once a vision failed against all odds, it managed to brave through the rain with instrumental precision most sportscars had. But still, don't expect the Dome Zero to show up on any other game rather than the Gran Turismo series because why? Ahem...
