45w ago - Sony Associate Product Manager Ken Chan posted up a new Gran Turismo 6 (GT6) E3 2013 PS3 trailer video which shows Willow Springs and GT3 race cars below.

To quote: 2013 Press Conference, we proudly presented a new trailer showing highlights and new evolutions developed exclusively for GT6.

Without giving too much of the trailer away, pay attention to the effects of the new physics engine as it accounts for all the intricacies and complexities of a car's behavior, especially during cornering.

With help from KW Automotive, the suspension system of each vehicle, most notably the shocks, more accurately showcase how a car reacts to various lateral loads, reproducing body roll and wheel slip in an amazingly real manner.

Polyphony Digital worked closely with Yokohama Rubber Corporation to produce a new tire model that reflects the tire compound, tire structure and changes in characteristics during extreme load conditions.

Improving the overall look of GT6 is Adaptive Tessellation, the next generation in 3D model rendering technology. Tessellation involves dividing a polygon into multiple geometric tiles; Adaptive Tessellation takes that science one step further by automatically dividing the polygons to become finer according to the viewing distance and position.
