= Compilation of Removed/Added Cars and Features in GT6 =

Thought I'd make this post to help organize info on what stuff has been cut from GT5, and what new things can be expected in GT6

Check out this thread on GTPlanet for a good running list of added/removed cars and tracks, and more comments from other users

Here's a copy-paste of the OP of that thread (formatting is messy, I'll touch it up soon):
I wrote a program to remove the duplicates from the lists of cars from GT5 and GT6. I still got a lot of mismatches (around 200) that I had to go through manually (a lot of cars were slightly renamed, but we can easily assume it's the same car). As for the "Removed Cars (with similar alternative present I'm still almost sure that it was a naming issue and that it is safe to assume it's the same car, but I put them there anyway. Note: for those of you who are curious, I attached the mismatch file ("out.txt") so that you can judge by yourself if the cars are the same or not

Removed Cars (no alternative present) Ferrari F10 '10 Ferrari F2007 '07 Citroën C4 WRC '08 Ford Focus RS WRC 07 '08 Subaru IMPREZA WRC 2008 '08 Suzuki SX4 WRC '08 Ginetta G4 '64 Jensen Interceptor MkIII '74 Nissan 350Z Gran Turismo 4 Limited Edition (Z33) '05 Nissan 370Z (Z34) (GT Academy Version) '08

Obviously licensing didn't work out. The reason they were so restricted in the first place is because Ferrari didn't want them to be raced alongside non-F1 cars, and most (if not all) other team licenses are owned by F1, while Ferrari was still independent and therefore available in the first place. If PD was to get any other team, they'd probably have to get a license from F1 that would be super expensive, and it's possible games like the F1 series already have exclusivity on that

Happy that the Top Gear track is gone. Every time I went into a room with that track online it was full ofjust blasting up &&down the runway

Just an observation; if there was a room where the owner was using a KSA account (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia), the likelihood of the track being the Top Gear track was up over 80%. Do they just really like the show? I never went in those rooms due to them only having 1 bar (or no bars) for the quality of the connection

My PSN account is a Saudi one (I am Indonesian, actually, but I live in Saudi Arabia at the moment), and I often getsoff with those because I want to race. Though often I wouldthose Hagawalah rooms by entering a X2011 or Minolta,theout of them till I got kicked out.
