To give you an inside look at this year’s competition, we are partnering with Twitch to live stream the entire National Finals on Friday, 7/11 starting at 7am Pacific / 10am Eastern. It will be hosted by some of the most respected and experienced GT Academy and GT6 members.
Developed entirely in-house by the Design team at Aston Martin, led by Design Director Marek Reichman, DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo is a new, virtual-only GT racer that will be available for Gran Turismo 6 owners to download in July 2014, following the global launch at Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Yesterday, we had the pleasure to announce an exciting new partnership between Polyphony Digital and the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA); the governing body of worldwide motorsports such as Formula 1, FIA World Rally, FIA World Touring and FIA Endurance Championships.
This will be the biggest year yet in its history as our friends in Canada are added within the US competition*. This year’s GT Academy qualification demo will be available exclusively on Gran Turismo 6, so start practicing now as you now have less than a week before the start of GT Academy 2014.
GT fans! For those of you recovering from the release of Toyota FT-1 Concept and most recently the GT documentary, KAZ: Pushing the Virtual Divide, today’s 1.04 Update will surely keep you busy for the rest of the week.
At this year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Polyphony Digital Inc. and Toyota officially revealed the Toyota FT-1 Concept coupe.
GT fans! For the last few weeks, many of you visited www.gt6firstlove.com and shared your incredible first love stories, and witnessed the rebuild of Mario Andretti’s first race car that started his illustrious career — the 1948 Hudson.
Well, the moment is finally here. The Reunion video captures the magical moment when Mario Andretti sees and drives the rebuilt Hudson for the first time in more than 50 years. Without giving too much away, the video also shows the intricate process that Polyphony Digital goes through to recreate the classic Hudson in GT6.
Collector and auto expert Jay Leno took two cars from Gran Turismo 6 for test drives in the latest film episode of JayLenosGarage.com: 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.
