When creation began on this virtual model, very close attention was paid down to the smallest of details. However, the game designers did add creases and wrinkles to the body that will not be on the real-life version, ensuring that Chevy’s design will still be a surprise when it’s finally revealed. Sony’s game model will be a tremendous platform to see how the vehicle actually drives, but to see exactly how it will look, drivers will have to be patient.
Chris Perry, Vice President of Chevrolet Global Marketing, said that this is the first time that “access to such an exclusive driving experience” has been granted to fans of both the game and the vehicle.
Since the Gran Turismo gaming series was first introduced, all of the previous six generations of this Chevy sports car have been available for players to use in the game. Since the Corvette is one of the most popular vehicles used to race with, Chevrolet is glad that consumers have the opportunity to download the new, seventh-generation.
The Corvette prototype is available to download immediately through the PlayStation Store for no extra cost. Some of the world’s most well-known race tracks, such as Daytona International Speedway and Nurburging, can be driven on to test how the new Corvette runs.
Kazunori Yamauchi, president of Polyphony Digital, Inc., the company that develops the Grand Turismo franchise, said that they’re “excited to partner with Chevrolet to bring the first-ever Chevrolet prototype vehicle into a racing game.” Yamauchi also commented that it’s exciting to be able to give fans an “extraordinary level of access to the seventh generation Corvette that otherwise would not be possible.”
