It’s been widely known that Gran Turismo 5 features the track of dreams; BBC’s Top Gear test track, famously renowned for testing the driving diligence of celebrities and, of course, the Stig.

With this in mind, I decided to put its authenticity to the test by compiling a recorded lap in a Ferrari 458 Italia coupled with Jeremy Clarkson’s commentary from the Stig’s televised lap in the same car. The result is what you see in the video above.

While I think you will agree that with a spot of editing it is indeed possible to create a convincing Top Gear imitation,  it’s a shame the game doesn’t include the authentic camera angles from the show, not to mention his Stigness as a playable driver. Nonetheless, it’s still tremendous fun to drive around and offers great incentive to try and compete with Top Gear’s Power Lap board.

Gamer Limit’s review of Gran Turismo 5 will be up this week.

    Nice job.
    It’s a shame they didn’t use their heads when they decided to make the start a rolling start. Also, what was your time?

  2. Stig can’t be a playable character, he would basically instantly destroy every track if they made him authentic. That and the soundtrack would probably be replaced by bad 70′s disco…
