Video: New Gran Turismo 5 PS3 DLC - Corvette C7 Test Prototype

To quote: For weeks now, members of GTplanet have been speculating about the mysterious discovery of a camouflaged Corvette C7 appearing on the game's screen saver session.

Well the rumors are true - officially announced today at the LA Auto Show, Chevrolet and Polyphony Digital have been working very closely for months in developing an exclusive first-hand driving experience by offering a camouflaged Corvette C7 Test Prototype in Gran Turismo 5. The DLC is now available for free through the PlayStation Store.

With spy photos valued at an estimated $100,000, Chevrolet has gone to extreme measures to disguise the test car. In fact, a designated Corvette design team was tasked with developing custom camouflage to conceal the new design elements.





The concealed test prototype continues to undergo extensive performance and durability testing in preparation for final production. Millions of hours will be accumulated through thousands of rigorous performance trials before the car is released later in 2013.
