I know they are doing a Rothmans livery in GT2, I reckon a GT1 fantasy version would be a stunner also
Correct - There was the round-headlight 911 GT1, the "996 headlight" GT1 Evo, and then the GT1/98 had the 996 headlight but also much more significant aerodynamic changes and superficially resembles the earlier 2 cars.Surely the longer, sleeker car is the GT1/98 as modelled by Slot-it and, originally, Fly. Not the Evo, which was mainly a front end redesign of the original GT1.
With the addition of the Toyota being the only car to compete in both classes 1998 as GT1 and 1999 as GTPThe GT1, GT1 Evo and GT1/98 were all GT1 cars, same for the Mercedes CLK GTR, CLK LM and Toyota GTOne.
Given the poor results they had in 1997, Lotus did not homologate the Elise GT1 to avoid the costs involved in the homologation. The cars were run on a new name, with a different engine (from the Viper if my memory is right), the year after, but the results were even worse.
