TriviaEdit

  • While the car is intended to resemble the Camel-sponsored 99T, one of the alternate color schemes of the car resembles the John Player Special-sponsored 98T and 97T.
    • This would foreshadow the appearance of the Lotus 97T in GT6 as a part of the Ayrton Senna content.
    • As such, out of all Formula One cars in GT3, the car bears the livery with closest livery to the actual car. Additionally, the yellow color features the car number #12, Senna's car number that year.
  • The "Power by Ikiuo" text (instead of Power by Honda text in the actual car) is a reference to Seiichi Ikiuo, one of Polyphony Digital's programmers.
  • The F687/S is shown to use Pirelli tires, despite the source car, the 99T, used Goodyear tires instead.
  • Internally, the car is named "lotus_99t", alluding to the base car.
