Gran Turismo PSP Pre-Order Bonus Items Revealed

Stephanie Yoshimoto's Avatar Posted by Senior Product Marketing Manager

Hey there. We just announced the ZR1 Corvette as our cover car, and now I’m back to announce of some exciting pre-order items that are coming soon.

Pre-order Gran Turismo, and you’ll get a voucher that will add one of the top cars to your in-game collection of cars in an exclusive color. This means that on day one, you’ll be able to smoke your friends in 4-player Ad Hoc Mode multiplayer races with one of these rare sports cars while they are just getting started saving up credits.

First up is the 2009 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 in the Black M color. Sporting a 16-cylinder engine with four turbochargers delivering over 1000hp, this is one of the most sought-after cars in the world, not to mention the fastest production car in the world. And by that, I mean it can do over 254mph.

Also available will be the 2002 Enzo Ferrari in Giallo Modena (yellow). With unmistakable Ferrari style and a 6.0-liter V-12 engine, this car should make it easy start racking up credits to start building your collection from the more than 800 cars in the game.

Next up is the 2008 GTbyCitroen in yellow. You may remember this concept car and its sleek, futuristic style from last year when it was announced at the Paris Motor Show. This car is the result of a close collaboration between Polyphony Digital and the French automaker Citroen. And now it’s making its way into Gran Turismo for PSP.

The fourth car that will be available is the metallic blue version of the 2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V. The new GT-R is one of the hottest cars on the market right now, complete with the in-dash multi-function meter designed by Polyphony Digital. The Spec V reduces overall weight and improves suspension and handling over the previous GT-R, making it even better for whipping around corners at high speeds. Now you can get this exclusive metallic blue color of the GT-R Spec V, on the PSP.

And last but not least is the classic 1974 Lamborghini Countach LP400 in Arancio (orange). Yes, that’s right. Lamborghini. GT fans know this is special, as it marks the first time Lamborghini has ever been in Gran Turismo. And as you can imagine, this won’t be the last Lamborghini in a Gran Turismo game, either.

And these are just five of the more than 800 licensed cars that you can drive in the game. Everyone who gets their hands on the game tells us that these cars look just amazing, speeding around the track at an unprecedented 60fps. Watch the official Gran Turismo website for more specific information in the coming weeks.

Don’t forget, Gran Turismo for PSP launches on October 1, 2009, available at retail and from the PlayStation Network.

Darkdragon2 said:

This question has been asked many times before but what about the PSP Go buyers. How do we get these things if we are going to get it off the PSN. Those are one of my concerns with digital downloads.

JeNeI said:

August 4th, 9:08 am

I have a question.These cars will be in the normal game too,or just for pre-order?

ADR143 said:

August 4th, 9:09 am

ZAANOS said:

August 4th, 9:23 am

Nice cars! wonder if GT5 or GT PSP will have the Honda Fit…hmm

I saw a Citroen parked in Montebello here in Cali recently. I was like what the heck is a car like this doing in this part of the city.

Pre-order Bonuses?? what if I wanted to get it off PSN?? Can I get a pre-order bonus? Much rather have this on MemStick

ThreeLeggedFreak said:

August 4th, 9:37 am

Where do I have to pre order from? What about if I wanna download from the store, can I still get the bonus?

ThreeLeggedFreak said:

August 4th, 9:50 am

Hey can you also take this happy time and confirm Porsches, Maserati, Koenigsegg in the game? :)

phinnv8 said:

August 4th, 9:51 am

Don’t care. Gran Turismo 5 news please.

Miyagi99 said:

August 4th, 9:53 am

And for those of us planning to download the game…what?

Mcgnnis said:

August 4th, 9:54 am

Awesome…now i have to preorder that game just for that Veyron.

Thordor said:

August 4th, 10:00 am

Do the bonuses come for any place we do our preorders from or is it only available for a specific place?

madeup6 said:

August 4th, 10:05 am

How much space will this game take up?

cnn93 said:

August 4th, 10:08 am

oh well, i mighht as well!

on more thing, the veyron is the 2nd fastest and goes up to 253 not 254.

TailsTheCat said:

August 4th, 10:12 am

Where do I pre-order this to get the cars? I want to buy this from the PSN store for faster load times. Let us purchase it on the store now, as a pre-order, then we DL the full game upon release. I will not support Gamestop.

I remember there was a Lamborghini in the japanese version of GT3, but it’s nice to finally be able to race with one. :D

Shocked, stunned, stupified, excited, amped, stoked, happy, too…. many… emotions….

StalkingSilence said:

August 4th, 10:26 am

Can I pre-order from the PlayStation Network? That’s how I’ll be downloading it, so you might want to think about that before pushing people to get the game in advance.

I’d like to be able to buy it, have it download and install automatically as soon as it goes live.

    Not currently, but we are always exploring ways to enhance functionality. Please read my other reply for those like you who plan to purchase from the PSN.

singhjeet29 said:

August 4th, 10:36 am

How would you pre-order if you plan to get this for the PSP Go. I really want that Veyron! I’ve always wanted to drive that car in Gran Turismo.

Cobra1 said:

August 4th, 10:48 am

You know…. I think it would be awesome if Sony were to include a voucher for your choice of those cars in a PSP Go! release bundle. It would be even better if the PSP Go! color’s matched the cars! :P

Just think… an Arancio PSP? What could be better?

Pleeeeaaaassse? :)

SlayerGT said:

August 4th, 10:48 am

5 down! 795 more to go!! =)

stinkey said:

August 4th, 10:50 am

do you get one Car from a specific retailer? Or do you get all the cars when you pre order? As soon as I got confirmation on this game after E3 and Ran out and bought my fourth PSP I ever owned. This one was of course the PSP3000. I don’t think I will be getting the GO anytime soon. GT FTW… Heck PSP FTW! all these great games coming out starting with Final Fantasy

TailsTheCat said:

August 4th, 10:51 am

So where do we pre-order(not at Gamestop) for these bonuses? I want to buy it from the store. Please, Sony come up with a solution for this.

Antonisbob said:

August 4th, 10:53 am

aw man… this game makes me wish I had a PSP..

TailsTheCat said:

August 4th, 10:54 am

Im selling on on ebay. Mint. Check me out.

PatriotEyez27 said:

August 4th, 11:06 am

What if I play on getting the digital version for my future PSP Go?

WEALLLOVELUNA said:

August 4th, 11:08 am

sounds good, but fyi, the ccs aero is the worlds fastest production car ( as it just trounced the vayron ) so yeah, check it sometime

jBat17 said:

August 4th, 11:08 am

Finally, Bugatti and Lamborghini on GT!

for sure those cars will be in GT5, too.

OMGGG

GT PSP will sell between 5m-15m copies lifetime

Crotin said:

August 4th, 11:39 am

Welp…I know what to buy with my PSPgo now

headwing45 said:

August 4th, 11:43 am

I’m planning on buying a PSP GO the day it releases with Gran Turismo PSP as my first game, I have a few questions about the pre ordering…

1) Can we still pre order the game if we plan on getting it off PSN, because it seems to me that PSP GO users will be excuded from this offer.

2) If there is a way for PSP GO users to get this deal, is this a American exclusive or is it North Amercan (U.S and Canada)

I strongly agree with #49

I really hope you guys have Porsches. It’s my all time favorite car in the entire world. No Porsches, no buy for me!

Oh.. im sorry.. i dont know that i was forbidden to write a comment in the US blog just because i wanted.. geez

Any news from PD/Sony about Gran Turismo is good thing. Keep it coming guys(and girls in this case)!

A lot of us were wondering when the Marketing Department was coming back from their extended vacations. :-b

    Thanks! Believe me, I\’d love to be on vacation, but we\’re here working on getting GT to you.

headwing45 said:

@88

He was just saying you should not blame Sony since it is the North American blog.

But you’ll be happy to know that the deal is also in the U.K, so you will not be forgotten…

FoolKiller79 said:

@LBFANSTi

You can comment all you want but yelling at Sony North America about what Sony Europe is or isn’t doing is like fishing for marlin in a pond. It won’t do any good. SCEA cannot help you with your issues with SCEE.

And by the way, I see you are now aware that the EU Blog did post this. Although, they appear to be lacking the Veyron.

anonymouszombie said:

August 4th, 12:54 pm

I’ll take the Enzo, GTbyCitroen, or Veyron. The GT-R can choke on the dust left behind by my ZR1.

thegriefer said:

August 4th, 12:56 pm

what if we are getting on the psp go? Also please make a psp go/gt psp bundle.

awsome_robot said:

August 4th, 1:11 pm

can somebody clear this for me? how does this pre-order work? (what i mean is, since we only get to choose one, will there be different voucher codes for a specific car or will one code give me option to choose in the game? i don’t want the store i pre-ordered the game to run out of codes of the car i want).

Zephram said:

August 4th, 2:21 pm

I’d like to know if GT will run at a smooth framerate on the PSP-1000, or will I have to upgrade.

Also, the price should be lower for those of us who choose to download, especially if we don’t buy at a retailer.(It probably won’t though)!

Protohype said:

August 4th, 2:51 pm

Lambo it is and preorder shall be. I kahnt wait. GT5, take as much time necessary to finish as I will be playing the #&%^@ out of GTPSP. Thank You Steph and PD.

katsuo7171 said:

August 4th, 3:05 pm

Anyone know how to pre-order over the playstation network. I’ll be getting a psp Go and don’t currently want a PSP 3000. Any help will be appreciated.

BlueNinja111 said:

August 4th, 3:22 pm

IceCold said:

August 4th, 3:36 pm

Humm this game alones makes me want a psp go. Not sure yet bu I’m getting the game.

penguindude5 said:

August 4th, 3:57 pm

Bundle this with the PSP Go, and I will buy it :). Also, good to see Lambo in a GT game, I guess this means they’ll be in GT5 too?
