The twisty road in the last pic reminds me of some of the tracks in nfs pu. Road and track magazine used to be associated with the first nfs games. Wondering if they had to do anything with the kind of roads selected. Maybe their favorite roads to test the cars in the real world. Any idea where these roads in the pics are from?

You know N4S, I was thinking the same thing last night when I saw these pics!
Corsica/CoteDeAzur/Normandy etc.. (though I've been thru real Corsica/Cote/Autobahn.. and they're not even close to what they've shown in NFS:PU. But these are identical.
Thanks Shan2nu (again).

I see a Lexus RX300, the Lexus GX470 and of course, the Cayenne. That looks a lot like LA. Great pic Pferdestärke.

Edit:
The one behind the RX could be a Jag XJ.

The two ferraris are racing... the McLaren is the time keeper of cousre He will press start on the stop watch go to the end and press stop for who ever passes the finish line first. Duh!!

Yes the picture of the girl at the golf is an Indian. Many of us in SA are, the hot ones that is

BTW this is not thru my wind shield... i was standing in the road taking the picture.
