The cat is out of the bag!

As a special treat for the fans of the original games, Isopod Labs is including eight original V8 PS1 car models in V8: Arcade.
The guys labored hard in the labs, converting the original 3D geometry, textures, and removing advanced texture-blending, to ensure that these rare replicas are restored to their authentic old-gen glory.
And, for the ‘history’ buffs, Isopod is proud to unveil the original Piranha — the first vehicle ever built for V8, but never included in the commercial versions of the game. This orange muscle car was based on the ‘Pickard Piranha’ from Interstate ‘76, driven by the character of Jade Champion and later her brother, Groove. The car was dropped early in development, after V8’s design was retooled as an arcade car-combat game.
These ‘Classic’ V8 vehicles can be unlocked by successfully beating the Single Player Quest of each character.

Yes, it’s true. Seven of the original PS1 car models plus the never-before-seen Piranha prototype (based on the ‘Pickard Piranha’ from Interstate ‘76) are included in V8: Arcade as unlockable vehicles. Check ‘em out below, each at (almost) 200 incredible polygons! :)
