To quote: GT fans! For those that are still waiting for the perfect reason to pick up Gran Turismo 6, we may have something for you.
Starting today, the newly announced BMW M4 Coupe is available for your virtual test drive in GT6, before the actual car goes on sale in 2014.
As a celebration of this collaboration between BMW and Gran Turismo 6, a unique seasonal event featuring the BMW M4 Coupe is available to all on GT6 for two weeks, from today until December 26th, 2013.
The BMW M4 Coupe Superlap challenge will take place on the Nürburgring Grand Prix circuit, and gives players the opportunity to drive the car to complete the event, giving anyone the chance to experience this stunning new vehicle in the virtual world before it launches in the real world.
Until now, the BMW M4 Coupe has only been shown publicly as a 'concept', but thanks to an innovative collaboration with BMW, Polyphony Digital was able to get early access to the car during its development phase in order to meticulously recreate the BMW M4 Coupe for Gran Turismo 6.
