It's like a Porsche front, fiero rear glass, and Ferrari rear. I guess this is how they get around licensing fees for repro's.

What do you guys thought and opinion of simulated wheel disc brakes? It a nice touch for guys that like to show off their car.

Personally I think its a really nice touch especially with that body style. Just don't use those nasty looking dished wheels with decals ever again. GT class is all about realism and how much the cars look like their 1:1 counter-parts. I think you're car does the best at accomplishing that. Throw in the spoked wheels with simulated carbon brakes and you have a winner!
