Early 2000s cars were asked countless times and so far we've only had the addition of the Lancer Evo VI to the already existing cars, but even then it couldnt race the 2001s. Let's see what happens.

So far the game seems to be shaping up nicely, I'm only a bit hesitant to the cars and to the absence of DR1 rallies, specially Monte, Sweden and Wales.

I'd love peugeot 206 and 307 for a bit of variety preferably with the old WRC colours, however impossible that may be.

truly hope that tarmac handling was important to them for this sim, and the inclusion of so far unknown tarmac rallies fate is safe .
Monte was so beautiful in DR and sure hoping for a sequel of it.

Surprised no one posted this yet                     

Not a big fan of early car unlocks in the career, but I will be getting the deluxe edition for the Porsche, dlc and those four sweet sweet days of early access

In case it was missed when looking at Today's Prodrive post on FB, they posted one between yesterdays mic'ing session and the picture today - small video of the car idling and revving with the sound gear on it.  Caption underneath read you'll have to wait until the game to hear more.

Tuthill Porsche is literally 10 minutes down the road from Prodrive.  They could do old and new in the same day
Yes, just 10 mins away. Reality is, they don't have any cars to record that aren't customers cars. Which is why we went elsewhere. It's all so simple eh.
“Could” being the key word, assuming permission and availability.  
You seem quite frustrated.  Perhaps that would confirm that you are having to use the 80’s sounds for the RGT car and the 80’s car won’t actually feature...?

Nothing new there unfortunately, bar confirmations of a couple of liveries. Escort still looking lovely! Unfortunately looks like the Stratos is still in the wrong class, unless two of those five are from the same category.

Not willing to sign up for this until we know more about the content of the 'seasons' personally.

So you reckon it’s in?  I’m not so sure.  

Of course it’s specific and rare.  It’s still a Porsche flat 6 boxer engine though and more importantly - available to record.

The guy just said Tuthill had nothing in an RGT

Yeah, i reckon it's in, especially as ProDrive just told us to wait for the game to hear what they recorded.


Now, i know that's technically just hearing, they never said drive the car - however, as available as this is, the closeness is convenient, but doesn't matter as much.  This is available, but again, super rare and not needed, you'll notice it doesn't sound anything like the RGT, so bear that in mind along with the availability of RGT Porsches.

I can't speak for him, but I believe he meant that Tuthill look after customer cars, so they can't call Tuthill and ask them to start up a customer's car for recording. I've no doubt they will have found someone with a modern RGT car for the new car's spec. I don't think this guarantees the SC RS is in and we probably won't know for months, but the signs point to it:

- It's the model recorded, I'm sure they could find any other model they were after
- It's 'easier' to licence works cars (see Assetto Corsa), so the SC RS is arguably more likely than the SC (early 80s) or RS (late 70s)
- Group B RWD is a class with 2 cars, looking for another would make sense

There's no way they are recording that car for the RGT, the main reason being that they sound very, very different. Second, during the last livestream they were intending to show the RGT and mentioned that it sounds amazing (not the in-game car technically, but still.. they wouldn't say that and then show placeholders IMO.)

I actually belive they had a place holder sound of a Saab 96 for this particular live stream...

To back up your point, and because it's my favourite channel on YouTube...

SC RS (1984)

911 RGT (2014-ish)

and, just because it's about 3rd on my personal 'most wanted' list:

Na, not frustrated, I'm just blunt like that ;) You did make it sound so easy though, Kev. Also, we don't record at workshops, most cars need to be transported to a track or runway.

To summarise the context - Madhun suggested the RGT wouldn’t be hard to seek out as they are all over Spain & Europe?  I was referring to possible subjects perhaps being available a little closer to home, NOT belittling the work you do when you do actually manage to find one....

...or to be blunt - did you bother to read what you were replying to??? :P

I just hope that this pre-order package is available with the steelbook (would prefer not to have to buy two versions of the game to get everything).

http://www.codemasters.com/dirt-rally-2-0-day-one-retail-edition-and-pre-order-content-announced/

This press release raises more questions than it answers:

Exclusive Pre-order Incentives at selected retailers.
Available at selected retailers, players who preorder the game will receive an exclusive Steelbook, and/or the Opel Kadett C GT/E.
So is the Opel Kadett a pre-order exclusive (to a specific retailer), or is that unlocking it?

...includes the first two seasons of post-launch additional content, each with three locations (split between rally and rallycross) and five additional early vehicles unlocks
So are they selling 'unlocks' as DLC, or is a typo? Also, very vague about locations, but hope that will be revisited before launch

...early unlocks for the Fiat 131 Abarth Rally and Alpine Renault A110 1600 S
So are these included with the 'deluxe' version of not?

...early vehicle unlocks...
What even is an 'unlock' anyway - is it just for 'career' mode or are we prevented from using all cars in one off stages and rallies too?

@ChristinaMc If you'd be able to clarify some of the above, I'd be very grateful - thanks.
