Gran Turismo 5

AMG Vision Gran Turismo

Rather than go for a flashy Ferrari, Lamborghini, Pagani, Bugatti, etc., Bruce Wayne decided to drive the AMG Gran Turismo in the upcoming Justice League movie. It will appear alongside Wonder Woman’s E-Class Cabriolet, and the G-Class 4×42 SUV. “As a designer you have to create fantasy, so we often get inspired by the film industry. I am excited that this time, the film industry was inspired by us and our Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo became the car for a super hero. Extreme proportions, sensual contours and intelligently implemented high tech blend to form a breathtaking body and the perfect car for Bruce Wayne,” said Gordon Wagener, Chief Design Officer of Daimler.

When vehicles in Gran Turismo become a reality, you get concepts like the stunning Volkswagen GTI Roadster Vision. This roaster isn’t just for looks, it boasts a 503-hp, twin-turbocharged V6 that powers all four wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. VW estimates that if it fired up the Roadster it could hit 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and top out around 192 mph. Continue reading for a video, more pictures and additional information.

Finally, after several years of delays, the full version of Gran Turismo 5 has hit stores.

Shown at the Tokyo Game Show earlier, this incredible video shows off Gran Turismo 5’s dynamic weather system. Plus, “the game’s weather system is also auto-generated based on a trio of interacting factors: humidity, temperature and pressure.” Video after the break. Click here for more screenshots.

The combination of those three elements can result in fog, rain, snow or a clear day. Yamauchi said the team cannot even impose specific weather conditions on a particular race but merely suggest them by creating cloudy weather, for example. From there, the system takes over to create weather on the fly.

Top Gear fans rejoice! Here’s an in-depth preview of the Top Gear test track in Gran Turismo 5. Thats right, you’ll see the “hammerhead, follow-through, [a] useless driver spin around and then see nothin.” Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

Oh, and try not to be too harsh on the guy driving in the video. Like us, he’s probably totally shocked to see other drivers on the track at the same time as him.

The new Gran Turismo 5 trailer from E3 2010 basically “gives us a glimpse at three of the most hotly talked about features of the game – damage rendering, night races and the Top Gear test track.” Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

The latest spot features a little voiceover action from none other than Sebastian Vettel. It’s hard to tell exactly what part the Formula One guru will play in the game, and our imaginations are running wild as a result.

Despite Sony delaying Gran Turismo 5 indefinitely, they still managed to put together a new trailer as well as screenshots showcasing the Toyota FT-86 G. Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

But, the real news is the G Sports Series FT-86. Because it’s the FT-86 is still officially a “concept” Toyota isn’t revealing any hard data beyond RWD, 2.0-liters and six-speed manual.
