Yu Suzuki and his development team, AM2, all purported driving fanatics, set out to create one of the most realistic racing experiences ever made while staying true to the idiosyncrasies of the F355 itself.

Of all of the countless racing games that have been released over the last few years, only a small few have managed to be true pioneers in what is possibly the most over-saturated genre in video games.
