Koenigsegg CCX rendered - Click above to view the video after the jump

We're pretty excited about the new Gran Turismo 5 video game for the PlayStation 3 and PSP, and the sneak peeks we've seen so far have been astonishingly good. We know GT5 will have some sweet damage rendering capabilities, night racing and weather changes. Plus, we know the graphics are damned impressive. But clearly there's more on the table.

GT5 will be all well and good, but what we're about to show you is about as eye-popping as anything you're going to see. After the jump is a video rendering of the rare and alluring Koenigsegg CCX done by a company called Proper Graphics. It is not, as originally thought, a teaser from GT5.

The clip is only 1:47 long, the engine doesn't start and the tires don't even budge. It's just a series of hovering camera shots of the CCX on a beautiful cobblestone road, and the detail is just shy of breathtaking. The sheetmetal, carbon fiber and interior appointments are about as detailed as anything we've ever seen, and we're hoping that we can expect a taste of this sort of thing in future GT installments. Hit the jump to see it for yourself.

      Forget GT5, I just love the look of the CCX. That's hot.

      Would look more realistic if they're rendered in a cameraman in the reflection on the paintwork. :)

      And what's with the ugly head unit like a big wart in the middle of the central console?

      Looks very real. Although rendering is different than in game. Looks amazing though.

      10 replies letting us know that this is not from GT5. Thanks guys.

      Gorgeous rendering. The reflections towards the end really do it for me. It could use another coat of AA... with that, i bet still shots would be all but indistinguishable from the real thing.

      Stunning no matter what it's from.

      OK, it is absolutely mind-blowing.

      But, in actual game play - you probably won't get any where close to it - since the computer has to process way more data and physics and ...

      Also, this rendering was probably generated using the absolute high-end system you can buy ($2K+).

      Nonetheless, I am optimistic this kind of photo-realism would be much more common in the next few years. GPU/CPU power is continuously increasing.

        "Also, this rendering was probably generated using the absolute high-end system you can buy ($2K+)."

        $2K+, you grossly under estimated 'high-end' system.

      Very impressed, needs an extra coat of AA, but still the best in terms of graphics, and even an improvement over the prologue!

      I can't wait. Definitely buying on day one. I loved the prologue and I will love this.

      A fantastic rendering. Incredible.

      But what I want to know is... what's the name of this song?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Holy cow that is nothing short of phenomenal.
      I can't believe this is really a video game.
        • 5 Years Ago
        because this isn't from a video game :)
