Sorry if posted before. I recall that he posted concepts and images of the models but now you can load the models up in the browser and rotate and look at them. Very sad we didn't get these in the game. :(

Neat find. I recall there being a few static images and concept art of the vehicles, but this is the first time I've seen 3D turntables of them. If he worked on/has access to the Mr. Slam and Yellow Jacket models, it'd be really cool if uploaded those to be viewed, or even the alleged Pit Viper and Spectre models I don't recall ever being revealed.

I don't like how orange Crazy 8 is. Should be red.
Twister looks about the same as it always has in the series.
According to Barker had the DLC existed it would have been them 2 vehicles & Yellow Jacket...
But what about Mr. Slam? Was Mr. Slam not considered for the cancelled DLC? I can't understand why they would not have put him in, considering Mr. Slam's popularity.

As for Spectre I believe that vehicle simply became Kamikaze,
and Pit Viper, who knows if that model actually exists. Jaffe claims there was a model made for Pit Viper but there's no evidence of that on the internet.
There is a hidden easter egg in the game that suggests the vehicle was considered... in Sunsprings, CA if you look on the side of the school buses on the map you will find the name "Fortin" in reference to the fake name Pit Viper's driver used (Angela Fortin).

Really odd how poorly thought out the vehicle roster was. For instance, Brimstone wasn't even considered for the roster yet Preacher is in the game.
Roadkill & Death Warrant were too similar. Kamikaze & Crimson Fury were too similar. They could have cut one or the other in those pairs & included a Crazy 8 or Yellow Jacket or Twister.
Hammerhead was another mistake, wasted as a non-playable vehicle when HH (or Slayer) should be in the playable roster.

No one said Mr. Slam wasn't planned.
I'm talking about how on this 3D Artist's page he wrote "This model was created for Twisted Metal on the PS3, intended for DLC. Unfortunately DLC for Crazy 8, Yellow Jacket and Twister were canceled shortly before release." So according to this guy the cancelled DLC would not have had Mr. Slam despite the beta model having been made.
Also, back when I used to play some TMX I would notice a bulldozer in the Diablo Ass, i mean Diablo Pass map. Used to remind me of Mr. Slam.

I think Angela Fortin is named after Jennifer Fortin who was a co-dev
