@CadillacDave THE MIGHTY LOTUS CORTINA That car is the entire reason I've made the Merna a BTCC legend in its story line.
@strop The Civic really has become one of the best touring cars of recent times, full stop. And doesn't that Castrol livery look snazzy!
And man, Super GT cars in GT4 were the best. I'll always have a soft spot for the Takata Dome NSX.
@ramthecowy IKR! It actually looks really good for a Toyota, especially considering the Avensis has only been run one by one team for some time now and never done much. Should be good this season with any luck.
Speaking of Toyota's, here's another incredibly Silhouette racer, the Celica LB Turbo
560hp was squeezed out of its 2.0l i4, single KKK turbo engine, making it particularly powerful for a Group 5 car. Had been designed to take on the Porsche 935s but didn't really stand a chance (then again, nothing did).
Still, its conversion to silhouette racer was done beautifully. Seriously, just look at this side shot...
Sadly it was pretty rubbish as a competition car, never really winning anything in neither Europe or Japan. But still, as an object to ogle at, it's a masterclass in motorsport design.
