While we are all celebrating the belated confirmation of Gran Turismo 5‘s release date, it’s time to analyse the fine details of the latest trailer shown at Sony’s conference.
Me being me, the first thing I noticed were the shots from 00:59, which clearly featured the prestigious Top Gear test track complete with authentic camera angles lifted from the BBC show. Look closely however, and you will notice that his Holiness the Stig is behind the wheel in many of the shots – could this mean we can fulfill our motoring fantasies of being the very being whose genitals are upside down and who once punched a horse to the ground? F1 racing driver Sebastian Vettel can also be seen recording voice samples.
In addition, some beautiful night time shots were in ready supply, and we were also treated to another glimpse of the touted damage modelling. A Mitsubishi Evo X is seen to lose control and veer into a tyre wall, which crucially results in the car going airborne, indicating that rollovers might indeed be possible.
Revel in the excitement and see it all for yourself in the Gran Turismo 5 E3 2010 trailer after the break.
