Guys, is that a retractable spoiler under the fixed CF LM-style spoiler?

I see a lot of customization, but not Benny's level customization... :colgate:

I hope it performs as good as it looks. I'm probably going to get it.

99.9% chance that it has regular seating imo. I am very sure it is just the angle that is throwing ya'll off.

Same. But, there's still a possibility of it being one seater because it's one of the main characteristics of the F1.

Am I late to the party? Are we getting a new car?

A few new cars including a classic Turismo and classic Infernus. Also this car, the Progen GP1 which is pretty much the street version of the Progen Tyrus. Tyrus is McLaren F1 LongTail used on race tracks and the GP1 is the McLaren F1 LM, which is the street version.

 

Makes me think what they gonna be, Hoping for a Countach and maybe a Testarossa or F40 guess we'll have to wait and see.

See, from where I'm sitting, the driver looks like they're sat right under the roof vent:

 

e78cb7f193b52134796b20f39d59209f1ad7627c

 

 

That, and the wheel/dashboard shapes/position certainly look like they match the F1 LM:

 

MW2012F1LM.jpg

 

 

Compare to the Tyrus - driver's very clearly off-centre from the vent, and the dash doesn't project forward into the centre curve of the windscreen like the F1, and likewise the GP1:

 

c0beaa4ce83c6d8e4f6809b214f0b028d8396fcb

 

 

That said, it matters very little at this point - I don't care if it has a conventional wheel, conventional doors, awful stock wheels, no visual modifications, a rubbish engine sound, generic rear lights, terrible handling, and sub-par performance (and at a $3 million price tag, to boot!), and ...I'd still buy it. It's very much close enough looks-wise, and the LM is one of the few supercars I actually really like, so screw it - blame 'Ninetiestalgia' or something... :p

the angle in the promo pic is pretty dramatic and that might skew things to make the seat appear to be in the middle

 

also wait we have the Tyrus in-game. it's not that hard to like, get a shot of one in a race, go to the editor, and pose the camera exactly in the same position we're seeing the GP1 from and see how the driver position looks from there.

 

(ok positioning the camera might be a lil tough)

I'm wondering what color they used, not quite sure if this is a standar blue or some mix with a pearlescent, but it looks really great!

Look at the dash, that steering wheel sure seems to be mounted directly in the center...!

Man I'm excited, ever since the t20 and the advent of progen all I've wanted is an f1. The other new cars are icing on the cake, can't wait for a testa rossa!

I doubt they'll do center seating, they were too lazy to make the Elegy Retro RHD

Guys, is that a retractable spoiler under the fixed CF LM-style spoiler?

No. The F1 LM doesn't have one, so why would the GP1? It's just a lip spoiler, that's most likely the stock one, but bigger spoilers can be added.

Because it might not be an LM at all. It could be a standard* F1 with a custom spoiler & canards from LSC.

* well, if you can call a regular F1 "standard".

Don't forget that the Tyrus isn't just an F1 LongTail, but also a Saleen S7!

I was bored, so I went to SP, spawned Tyrus and tried to recreate the photo...

As you can see, Frank does look like he's sitting on the middle (I was unfortunately unable to capture the steering wheel, but still I'm confident that it's 2-seater)

 

 

Just a comparison between the two...

Yeah, not perfect, I know :catspider:

 

 

 

 

also sorry for watermark, just in case if YT'bers want to steal some things...

It is also apparent to me that they are two completely different models from that comparison. Like it isn't just a shorter Tyrus. It's a whole different car.

Well the F1 LM and F1 LongTail are significantly different from one another, but are essentially the same car. Sort of like the Gallardo and Huracan or Enzo and Laferrari. The younger ones are obviously derived from the older gens.

Good job making that comparison shot, but I'm still not fully convinced.

 

I hope it happens to be true though. The Tyrys should have been this way too, but then again it had some S7 influence in the design. This has a lot more F1 in it.

Thats what i was thinkin. The only option would be a single center seat. They could reuse a center seat animation for a Formula 1 car down the road. But i doubt they spent the resources on a new seat animation this late in development.
