Gran Turismo for PSP - Click above image to view the video after the jump

If you missed the Gran Turismo Playstation Portable ad we featured earlier this week, have a look. We'll wait...

Back? Great. What you saw was Tanner Foust and Rhys Millen running around Laguna Seca, with Millen behind the wheel of a Corvette ZR1 and Foust riding shotgun while running the track on Sony's PSP.

Millen was kind enough to sent us a link to a behind the scenes video of the shoot, and along with Foust and Millen, we also get to see director Jeff Zwart and Rhy's rally champion father, Rod Millen, driving a few other cars during filming. Zwart is a long time rally driver/racer along with being a photographer and filmmaker, and in the new clip we get to see a few other cars (GT-R, Ford GT and... is that an E39 M5? Awesome!) mixing it up and getting sideways at speed with a camera car in the middle of the action. Best job ever? Pretty close. Make the jump to check it out.

      Hats off to Polyphany Digital for coming out with a game that actually resembles the real-world tracks they are attempting to simulate.

      My chums and I were just lamenting the fact that in the recent game NEED FOR SPEED: SHIFT the track layout for Nurburgring is pathetic compared to the old game Gran Turismo 4 which literally modelled each and every tree, shrub, crack in the road etc. very accurately. Proof is (similar to this ad) in that you can watch a real-life video of a track attack at the Nurburgring and do a side-by-side comparo with Gran Turismo 4 and lo-and-behold the attention to detail is stunning. Someone could probably graphically overlay the video game over the real world video and the differences would be negligible.

      Too bad we have to wait until (at least) Spring of 2010 to get our paws on Gran Turismo 5 :(

      sorry for being the spelling police, but its written, "Rhys's" because Rhys is his name, not Rhy.
      • 5 Years Ago
      It is an E39 M5. And you should've mentioned Inside Line as your source. :o)

      I want this game so bad it consumes me!
      • 5 Years Ago
      Not to mention an Evo as the camera car! Yes! That shoot is made of win.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Yep, that's an E39 M5 for sure. Great video by the way.

      PSP is absolutely useless for driving sims. The steering consists of ON or OFF.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Whats the alternative? The DS??

      1:57 - An eight-story building? Really?
      Why must people find the need to exaggerate all the time? An eight story building is roughly 100-120ft tall. We see it in the video dude, no need to exaggerate.

      Anyway, nice Evo camera car.

      I bet Ben Heck will find a way to shove a PSPgo into a Logitech steering wheel.
