158w ago - SCEA Producer Taku Imasaki has shared new details on Gran Turismo 5 for PS3 today, which now includes more Nurburgring!
To quote: If you saw our Web site this morning, then you already know about the news.
If you're a true racing fan, you know that Nürburgring is a world-renowned racing complex in Nürburg, Germany.
It's known for being extremely challenging, a grueling testing ground for even the most seasoned race drivers and the most highly tuned performance cars.
It's home of various world-famous races including the Nürburgring 24 Hours race, and used as a testing ground for bleeding-edge performance cars by companies like GM, Dodge, Nissan, Lexus, and Ferrari.
In the words of Mr. GT, Kazunori Yamauchi himself, "For a car enthusiast, the Nürburgring is the equivalent to what places like the "Eiger Nordwand" or "Mount Everest" means to a mountaineer. There is that special allure about it that you just can't explain in words."
