In their constant attempt to get you back into the world of simulation racing, Polyphony has released a new car for you to test out in the world of Gran Turismo 5. The Corvette C7 Prototype is available now on the Playstation Store for free and it is a sneak peak at the real-life version that is coming out early next year. This is an opportunity for racing/car enthusiasts to get a taste of something not even out yet, almost a tease.
Much like what they did with the Red Bull car, this prototype is bound to be a blast to drive and maybe help you beat a few career races.
Here are some details taken from the official Gran Turismo site:
During the creation of the virtual Corvette prototype, careful attention was paid to the tiniest details from the creases and wrinkles in the soft camouflage used to disguise the new design to specific driving characteristics that are currently being tuned and refined ahead of the vehicle’s official debut in January.
"Until now, only the most skilled drivers on the Corvette team have been authorized to push the test prototypes to the limits on some of the most challenging track surfaces in the world," said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Global Marketing. "Through this unique collaboration with Gran Turismo, Chevrolet is able, for the first time, to give performance car enthusiasts access to such an exclusive driving experience."
I know only five other people care about this DLC, but I just had to do a post on it.
