Doing laps of the Top Gear test track in Duke Nukem Forever GT5 – Click above to watch video

We'd heard that Polyphony had the rights to in-game representations of the Top Gear test track, and here we have the evidence in moving images. In the next installment of Gran Turismo 5, said to be let loose in November in 3D (we'll wait while you grab that grain of salt), you'll be able to do everything the Stig can do, with all the cars in which he does it. Except, most likely, you won't go anywhere near as fast. Follow the jump for the video, and get those 3D goggles ordered already! Thanks to David for the tip

      I hope they have some fun with this on the show.

      CAN. NOT. WAIT.

        Well, looks like it's time to buy a PS3!

        I don't think anyone would have sussed this if it was claimed to be a lap from real life. Those graphics and physics are just extraordinary. And rightly so, this game has been in production since the Pyramids were built.

      Closest thing I've seen to McLaren F1 around their test track. Hope they hand the McLaren over to the Stig.

      Aaaaand across the line!

        It's so ingrained at this point, I heard Clarkson in my head the whole race.

      Even with the tiniest amount of research you'll find that not only is the game coming out Nov 2, 2010 in North America (you have to wait for the Euro Gamescom this August for the EU and UK release date) but that it's first and foremost still a regular 2D game (or a sim, unlike Forza 3's or NFS SHIFT's more arcade persuasion) but will be available on the same disc, a full 3D version if you have the tech to support it.

        I agree with Riley. I will buy it when it comes out, but judging from the video, the physics appear to be as disappointing as GT5 Prologue, which I have played extensively despite its flaws.

        Forza 3 is significantly closer to a sim (like GTR2) than GT5 Prologue. It's really disappointing, especially since my PS3 Logitech wheel is so much better than my Xbox 360 wheel. If only Polyphany put as much time and effort into making this game a sim as they did into making it look so pretty.

        I will eat my own shorts if this game has better physics that Forza 3.

        Did you see the way the guy was driving, and how somehow the car was able to stay on the track, pass supercars with little difficulty, and basically win the race?

        I'm worried after this video.

      I hope there is a way in GT5 to keep track of your best times without having to be online. There is no way in Forza 3 as far as I can tell. Prologue would do it so hopefully GT5 will as well.

      Is that November 2011 or 2012?
      • 4 Years Ago
      I like how someone other then TopGear Sony or PD had this video taken down.
      • 4 Years Ago
      i demand reliant robin!

      If the release date is final for GT5, then it look like it's finally time to get a PS3.
        • 4 Years Ago
        All signs suggest Ford GT. And it was driven so poorly...
        • 4 Years Ago
        November 2nd. They say its officially official. I purchased the collectors edition the day it was available.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I swear, this game will triple ps3 sales overnight. Also, what the hell were they driving that could outgun a mclaren f1?

        @spyker3292
        They've had "final" release dates before... It's never stopped them delaying it before...
        But I really do hope it gets released then. Can't wait.
        • 4 Years Ago
        It is final :D
      • 4 Years Ago
      They probably will have porsche under the guise of Ruf.
