Gran Turismo, and racing simulators in general, have struggled to nail the sense of speed so common in arcade racing games and real-life racing. Even Gran Turismo 5 didn’t seem to have made progress in this area, but the latest footage puts this issue to bed.
In a video of the GT5 Nürburgring 24-hour circuit demo, a lucky gamer takes a Lexus out for a spin. Using the game’s new professional driving physics, the gamer does a bloody good job at posting a respectable time at extreme speeds.
Now, we’re not sure if it’s just the quality of the driver, or the choice of camera, but the sense of speed in the following video is palpable. Let us know whether you agree in the comments section. We’ll hear more about Gran Turismo 5, which is expected to release later this year, at next months E3.
