The camouflaged C7 Corvette that will strip down for the 2013 Detroit Auto Show has been seen on the roads as a coupe and as a convertible, and in a teaser video. Chalking up another appearance in video, the camo'd coupe does a screen saver cameo during demo mode in Gran Turismo 5. Out back it's hung with a "CORVETTE" vanity plate that looks Michigan standard but is actually from the state of Polyphony...

A camouflaged Nissan GT-R was introduced to Gran Turismo in the same way a number of years ago. According to a YouTube commenter, the Corvette dealership in the game has 17 cars for sale but only 16 of them show up. Our guess is that you can take advantage of the 450 horsepower lurking inside this one after 1/13/13. For now you can have another look at it in the videos below.

      A camo'd car in a video game is even more useless than a camo'd car on car forums...lol

      GT5 is so hopelessly behind on content that it's almost not worthwhile to put any new cars on it. I have owned every console GT and bought an X360 just for Forza 4, because the FM series has the right approach to content and the resources to deliver that content. I'm hoping GT6 corrects this because GT still has the better car physics and models.

        This exactly. It take 6 months to draw one of these cars for how many million polygons it is... and they go and waste it on a camo. Gran Turismo have lost it... they really have no idea. And their car packs aren't worth 5c.

      At least it is not another GTR.

        For those of you who downvoted him, I'm assuming you haven't heard that GT5 has like a million GT-Rs... it is a little ridiculous

          Remember Kaz Yamauchi programmed the computer you'll find inside an R35 GT-R. It was bound to be obvious.

      It's a damn shame that the LT1 will probably sound like a DOHC V6 in that game.

        True. GT5's engine sounds are pitiful.

          Agreed...V8 sounds are probably the worst....the 426 Hemi in the Super Bee sounds best as stock...you can at least hear some induction noise around 5K RPM.....it seems the stock V8 sound is the best with the generic race sound that is the same for many of the American cars not too bad. I have driven a Cuda with a 440-6 and it has HUGE induction noise....in GT5 it is pathetic.

      Not a Vette fan but this is the 1st time i am looking forward to the new vette & hope Chevy brings it into the 21st century & try to distance itself from the uncle molestti mobile image.

      Should be interseting to see how the new corvette handles vs a carrera.

      I wonder what happens if you disconnect your PS3 from the internet and advance your system clock to Jan 14th. If a downloadable update that will come out after the 13th reveals the car, then nothing would happen. If the update that gave them the camo car has a built-in flag that reveals it on or after the 13th, then perhaps someone can grab us a sneak peek.
