Polyphony Digital worked with Chevy to incorporate the seventh generation Corvette into GT5, which is now available as a free download.
Although Chevrolet won’t introduce the new seventh generation 2014 Corvette until Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013, PlayStation 3 gamers can get behind the wheel of a camouflaged Corvette C7 Test Prototype today. Sony and Polyphony Digital have worked with Chevy to bring this new vehicle to Gran Turismo 5 for free on PS3.
The car maker and game developer collaborated to provide an authentic driving experience in a seventh-generation Corvette prototype currently available to only a handful of people in the world. During the creation of the virtual Corvette prototype, careful attention was paid to the tiniest details from the creases and wrinkles in the soft camouflage used to disguise the new design to specific driving characteristics that are currently being tuned and refined ahead of the vehicle’s official debut in January.
“Until now, only the most skilled drivers on the Corvette team have been authorized to push the test prototypes to the limits on some of the most challenging track surfaces in the world,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Global Marketing. “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.”
