Driveclub: An Extensive Look at The Car Selection Menu – Several New Cars and Categories Revealed

on May 23, 2014 9:58 AM

Yesterday, in a video published by PlayStation Access we got a glimpse of Driveclub‘s car selection menu. Turns out that, despite being scrolled very fast, it shown almost all the cars included in the game, or at least their thumbnails. Below you can check out a collage showing the whole thing, including 43 of the 50 rides we’ll be able to drive in Evolution’s upcoming title:

We can see that the cars are divided in groups, and the ones unveiled in the video are Hot Hatch, Sports, Performance, Super and Hyper. It’s very possible that there might be a sixth group for open wheel cars in the portion that isn’t shown, as we already know that the BAC Mono and the Ariel Atom will be in the game, and they definitely don’t qualify as hypercars.

Quite a few cars are shown by name, including previously unannounced ones:

  • Mini John Cooper Works GP
  • Audi RS 5 Coupé
  • Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG 45th Anniversary Edition
  • Aston Martin V12 Vantage S
  • Hennessey Venom GT
  • Audi R8 V10 Coupé Plus
  • Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
  • Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Coupè Black Series
  • McLaren 12C

But that’s not all. While identifying every car is impossible due to the size of the thumbnails and to the fact that many are covered by the lock symbol, there are a few that are unmistakable:

  • Volkswagen Golf R
  • Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupé
  • Bentley Continental GT V8 S
  • Aston Martin Vanquish
  • RUF RT-12R
  • Maserati Granturismo
  • Ferrari FF
  • RUF R-35S
  • Ferrari 458 Italia
  • Aston Martin One-77

It’s hard to be sure about the others, but from what we can see it definitely seems that the line-up is very focused on European cars, with the Hennessey Venom GT as the only recognizable American car for now, and absolutely no Japanese rides.

Of course feel free to squint and see if you can identify more of the cars included in the pictures, and leave a comment below with your discoveries.
