Actually that would be the first in a long time they got to do that. There was only one machine in Ridge Racer 7, the Raggio (now Rauna) that has a sticker scheme of Neneko.
Besides, there even was an Ace Combat X The Idolm@ster..
In Ridge Racer 7, we can customize our car to have it's aerodynamics preventing them from staying in the air for a long time, therefore allowing the car to reduce speedloss. They call it a Downforce Control System.
EDIT: The return of the Ridge Racer 7 star car! The Kamata RC410!
