What is the car on the cover of Top Gear/Top Racer game?

The same car appears to be the cover for Top Gear 2/Top Racer 2, both for SNES and Genesis versions.

If it is fictitious, what car it was probably based on?

Edit: This is the game's cover art. enter image description here

  • Wow, that is the closest match so far. Even the livery is similar.

I guess it's based on this type of cars:a car
another car

Don't know the name of them in English (translator doesn't help either) but you can google them by "barquetas de carreras"

  • It would seem to be a version of a classic GT or "Le Mans" car. Commented Nov 23, 2016 at 17:01
  • @Kaizerwolf right, added to my answer :)

  • Nice, those Le Mans are more similar. This means the car on the cover is fictitious?

  • @Hydren I would say so. It's highly based on the type of cars shown tho.

  • @Hydren I would have to agree with Alex. It's likely it's based off the cars in the answer, but not real. If it is real, it's probably a one of a kind car which makes it very difficult to find a definite answer.
