To quote: Collector and auto expert Jay Leno took two cars from Gran Turismo 6 for test drives in the latest film episode of [Register or Login to view links]: his own 1000 horsepower Oldsmobile Toronado, and also the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo concept car designed especially for the game.

In addition to being one of the first to drive the Vision Gran Turismo in the game, Leno is the first person outside Mercedes-Benz to pilot the Vision GT concept car - which was revealed at the recent LA Auto Show - in real life, using a radio controller through his LA garage.

But, so far, the only one to be turned into a real car. Leno said he thinks games are taking over in determining what cars achieve cult status.





"Video games are where cars will achieve cult status going forward and, like the Mercedes-Benz, where we will see cars make their debuts...

To quote: Today, Gran Turismo 6 takes to the track. In keeping with the series' MO, Polyphony Digital has once again created an incredibly sophisticated and convincing racing simulation, which proudly wears the developer's unconditional love for the automobile on its sleeve.

And alongside the huge roster of new cars available to take for a spin, and the 37 tracks waiting to be mastered, Polyphony has thrown in something of a surprise. For the first time ever in a Gran Turismo title, you have the opportunity to swap the racing circuits of planet Earth for the Moon, and pilot a lunar rover across its surface. Hands up if you saw that coming?





"We had been working for a while on simulating the stars properly in the game, and the moon was being recreated very accurately. While we were working on that, the idea just came out of the blue," recalled Polyphony president and series creator Kazunori Yamauchi, when we caught up with him at the game's launch in Ronda, Spain, earlier this week.

"We thought, 'wouldn't it be interesting if you could drive on the surface of...
