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.

Mercedes-Benz brought the AMG Vision Gran Turismo to Jay's garage directly from the LA Show. The Vision is the first of a series of concept cars from various manufacturers made for Gran Turismo 6. 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.

51w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton announced that Gran Turismo 6 is officially out on PS3 today, with details from Kazunori on Lunar Racing.

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.

To quote: Hey there, race fans. As many of you know, it's a huge week for GT. Gran Turismo 6 storms onto PS3 tomorrow, and to mark the occasion we held a grand launch event in Ronda, Spain.

Polyphony Digital president Kazunori Yamauchi was present to make a number of announcements, including the arrival of three new Red Bull cars in GT6: the Red Bull X2014 Fan car (X2014/F), the Red Bull X2014 Standard car (X2014/S) and the Red Bull X2014 Junior car (X2014/J).

These three cars were designed by Polyphony Digital Inc. in collaboration with Adrian Newey, Chief Technical Officer of four-time F1 champions Red Bull Racing.

Also present was a camouflaged version of the yet-to-be-launched BMW M4 Coupé. The stunning new car - shown publicly only as a concept until now - will go on sale in 2014. In collaboration with BMW, Polyphony Digital enjoyed unprecedented access to the car during its development, and it will be made available through a free update shortly after the release of GT6, allowing gamers around the world to drive it before it arrives in BMW showrooms.

Not only that, but the city of Ronda also honoured Yamauchi-san by...
