Hidden Testarossa in Shutokou Battle 2?

Post by DreamCasting »

This is new to me! :roll:

So I've been reading and watching some videos about it.
But how exactly can the car be unlocked?

Btw, the demo version (taikenban) is it available somewhere? Or it was never dumped?

Also, if I was a betting man, I reckon it will tell you in here how to unlock it.

TXR2 is quite influenced by the popular manga (now anime) Wangan Midnight. The blue Datsun Z boss at the end is basically the main characters car from that series. There are also several other notable cars from that series in the game, like the Porsche 911.

In that manga there is also a rich guy who races a testarossa around on the highway. It's very likely this secret car is more than a nod to that character.

I heard about the testarossa awhile ago, but what I heard is that you don't unlock it through normal gameplay, and it's only accessible through a gs code. I guess the devs got cold feet about putting it in, either that the game would be too close to the wangan midnight franchise and there could be some legal exposure there, or perhaps that Ferrari might be more zealous about protecting it's intellectual property than some of the other manufacturers (I heard the devs didn't exactly get permission to put all these cars in the game).

Although I don't care for the franchise unless Dreamcast+beyond, that collection baffles me, there are SIX of these on PS1?
