I played it on PC..the graphics are nice but I can't turn it up because of my ageing vid card.

Try turning off all the driver aids and play...it's so much harder, esp. in drift. I find that the drift opponent is rather easy to defeat even on 'Extreme' once you get the hang of the game.

I don't like that it is so easy to wreck your car. I like to smash my enemies muhahaha. But it is realistic.

Look at the background of the gallery area(yes, I waited and waited for everything to load).
I know a 1970-1971 Plymouth Barracuda when I see one and that is one! Well, it is close to one anyway.

As happy as I am to see that car on their site(and potentially in the game), it is flawed. The body is incorrect :(
See what I mean? The side the door and front fender don't have the same line that the real thing has.

Even the 71 still has that long line/outcropping/whatever across the side.

Oh well, hopefully if it actually is in the game it will be fun to drive.

*Edit
ok, looks like it is.
