SRT Tomahawk Ready for Racing

by David Zatz on

The SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo car in Gran Turismo 6 is now ready for use on the Sony PlayStation 3 gaming console. The car is set up as a 2035 model (presumably SRT will be back by then), and comes in three versions, starting with the 1,007 Tomahawk S, moving up to the GTR-S, and finishing with the Tomahawk X.  All have a powertrain that includes a 7-liter V10 with a pneumatic drive system for the front wheels. The X includes active aerodynamic panels for higher downforce when needed.

The car is optional in the game with release 1.20. There is also a seasonal event which allows people to earn the car rather than buying it; the event runs through July 24, 2015. To win the base car, players must complete the 2.5-mile Big Willow track at Willow Springs International; for the GTR-S, they must finish the Daytona road course in 1:28; and to get the X, they need to finish the 13-mile Nürburgring Nordschleife in at least 6 minutes.

The manager of advanced concepts for SRT engineering wrote that beginners should start at the beginning. Once the have their Super License, they should learn the Nürburgring track first. All players should try to use a force-feedback steering wheel controller at the least, and not try to use full throttle until the long straight.

He also recommended that players with a tendency to keep their foot down on the pedal go to the Options section of the main menu and switch active steering to Strong.  Original story in the FCA-NA blog
