    Default Virtua Racing (1992) Development article

    "For years, stories have persisted that its origins lay in a concept demo AM2 created of a Formula One racer as a pitch to show off the capabilities of the new board. Supposedly, it so dazzled Sega executives that it was subsequently used for the actual game. Suzuki dispelled this story once and for all in a 2014 interview for Read Only Memory's Sega Mega Drive / Genesis: Collected Works, when asked if the landmark title began as a demo:

    No, it was always intended to be the first full game for the Model 1. It was a very difficult project as the hardware was still in development when we began designing the game. This meant that we had to simulate the software using a PC."


    Here is an interesting article about the development of the original Virtua Racing for Model 1:
