Chevrolet and Sony are giving Gran Turismo 5 (GT5) gamers the chance to download a camouflaged Corvette C7 Test Prototype as a free vehicle download.
This seventh generation Corvette prototype is currently only available to a handful of people worldwide – and now you can check it out for yourself on GT5.
The Corvette C7 will make its official debut in January 2013 – and best of all, Chevrolet is only announcing the 2014 Corvette on Sunday, January 13, 2013.
The camouflaged Corvette C7 Test Prototype - available today for Gran Turismo 5.
The GT5 Corvette prototype contains every last detail of the real vehicle, says Sony, as its engineers and designers put the finishing touches to the real deal.
Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Global Marketing says, “Until now, only the most skilled drivers on the Corvette team have been authorised to put the test prototypes to the limits on some of the most challenging track surfaces in the world. Through this unique collaboration with Gran Turismo, Chevrolet is able, for the first time, to give performance car enthusiasts access to such an exclusive driving experience.”
Corvette’s previous six generations have always been available in the Gran Turismo series and Chevrolet is still one of the series’ most popular vehicles to race.
President of Polyphony Digital Inc, Kazunori Yamauchi, says, “Gran Turismo has had many firsts and we’re excited to partner with Chevrolet for yet another – bringing the first-ever Chevrolet prototype vehicle into a racing game. As car enthusiasts, we’re thrilled to give fans this extraordinary level of access to the seventh generation Corvette that otherwise would not be possible.”
It's a first-of-its-kind experience in racing: try out the Corvette C7 Test Prototype before its January debut.
You can download the camouflaged Corvette C7 Test Prototype from the PlayStation Store – immediately... and for free – and race it around some of the most challenging and renowned race tracks, like Daytona International Speedway and Nürburgring, which has been just one of the tracks used to test the real Corvette’s dynamics.
The Gran Turismo series is the highest-selling PlayStation-exclusive franchise, having sold more than 67 million copies.
