    plot twist: the reveal on the loading screen was accidental and the person who took the screenshot mistook the dev version for the 0.23 public release

    It's good to see The Team shedding light on some of the behind the scene inner workings.
    I honestly overlooked the Bolide for the last few years but recently started driving it more now that the tire model has been really overhauled. My LeGran station wagon track build does laps around it at most of the tracks in the game, but I'm sure with some more practice I can get those lap times down.

    On Hold just means they are currently not working on it, but it is in the plans to work on it again sometime. IDK how that is super hard to understand

    I love the bolide, and I'm sure the devs love it more than I do. So they should take the time to do this amazing vehicle some justice.

    The Bolide seats don't have any Jbeam, and the interior is so disproportional it can't fit a human taller than 1.5m inside, and if you fit you need to stretch your legs uncomfortably to reach the pedals, you need to have your leg straight to press the gas. Tested with the crash test dummy model, while its proportions might not be 100% accurate, they can't be THAT much off to cause these issues alone. I'd rather say it's an issue with the Bolide because no other car has such issues.

    I'm pretty confident that they've addressed the Jbeam as well as bringing it up to date with the standard of the other cars with the teaser splash screen we got with the last update.
    I'm not sure if you've ever been behind the wheel of an exotic car from that era or hell, a Lotus Elise, but the driver fitment is usually pretty cramp and awkward.

    proves that the bolide has become so outdated that the wip bolide shown was far from finished

    Sounds like typical Italian engineering design to me.
