Ugh, the Vitz isn't in any Forza game, so there goes any chance for someone to recreate this...

Anyway:

a Grand Turismo game simulation competition


That should be "Gran Turismo".

If you play World of Tanks, there's quite a few people who produce itasha skins based on Girls und Panzer and other series for the armored vehicles in that game. Given how popular the show is with the player base, other modders have also tried their hand at replicating the color schemes of the tanks featured in the show.

As for real-life tank itasha, for what it's worth, Wikipedia says that demilitarized T-34s in civilian hands tend to go for up to US$40,000. Better save up if you want one.

If they can do it for a helicopter, they can do it for a tank. Laughing



So go rent that tank - just don't run it into a house!

That's about £1500 worth of stickers on that car. That's another reason why they call it "painful". I would agree they would have been better on a tank, but then how many tanks are allowed on public roads theses days? Laughing

They have just announced that they are going to sell those cars starting Feb.14th Very Happy

Since there are only two cars (Prius and Vitz), they are going to offer people to apply for an entry to have an negotiation with Toyota.

It will be about $26000 USD for the Prius,
and about $15000 USD for the Vitz.

It may be a bit pricey for used vehicle, but since it is wrapped with custom made sticker with good quality, it might be at a good price range.

we can make a exact replica stickers just for your car if you want Laughing
