Gran Turismo 5 will feature over 1000 cars (for the Gran Turismo 5 Official Car List click here), the most ever in the series. Itís a collection of the hottest and most desirable cars from around the world, both past and present.
There are two tiers of cars in Gran Turismo 5--Premium cars and Standard cars. The differences between the two are as follows:
Exquisitely Detailed, Premium Cars Are Stunningly Recreated Both Inside And Out
From the seductive curves of exotic sports cars, to the inviting sight of the road ahead when you slide into the driverís seat and peer past the glass, down to the intricately detailed instrument panel and dashboard... Every one of the over 200 premium cars recreate every last detail of the car, inside and out.
Gran Turismo 5 contains over 200 of these "Premium" level cars.
Updated Cars From Past Gran Turismo Games Present An Unrivaled Lineup
The massive lineup of cars from past Gran Turismo games has been beautifully recreated through the latest technology and the Playstation 3ís cutting-edge graphics.
Gran Turismo 5 feature an astounding 800+ cars, a vast collection covering a wide range of eras and categories.
*Standard cars do not support vehicle interior camera views.
Intricate Details Raise The Bar For Racing Games Yet Again
The quality of the premium level cars is of course the intricate modeling of every tiny detail of not only the exterior, but the interior as well. No other game offers this level of ultra-high detail.
This level of detail extends from street cars to custom racing machines, where the unique instrument panels, colors and textures of the seats and interior materials, and more, have been painstakingly recreated.
In Gran Turismo 5, cars have fully-functioning headlights. Premium cars even feature both low and high beams for a variety of racing conditions.
Premium cars: Headlights with high beams and low beams
Standard cars: Standard lights only
NASCAR: Americaís Most Popular Motorsport
For the first time in the series, Gran Turismo 5 will feature NASCAR. Drive real licensed NASCAR cars and see well-known NASCAR drivers including Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Joey Logano, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the game.
One of NASCARís unique points of interest is the incredible skill and speed of the elite pit crews of each of the teams. Cars are lifted up, tires are changed with lightning-fast precision, and tanks are refueled in mere seconds. And all of this is faithfully recreated in Gran Turismo 5.
