Lexus virtual test drive in Gran Turismo ® 5


COLOGNE : December 13, 2010 - It is probably the most hotly anticipated video game of all time recently to racing game fans from all over the world with the new Gran Turismo ® 5 immersed in a world of motor sport unprecedented detail and atmospheric density. Gran Turismo ® 5 will inspire not only amateurs, but also very quickly become the preferred training tool by professional racers who want to rehearse the curve of a race track right from your living room.


Countless faithfully illustrated race tracks, the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring on various city courses up to Fuji Speedway in Japan, can be driven with more than 1,000 different vehicle models. The animated models of real cars look confusingly similar, and also provide in terms of driving dynamics and handling characteristics a true reflection of their real life counterparts. With this: 19 LEXUS vehicles and more than 80 Toyota models from various eras. From the first Lexus SC Series 1997 Lexus IS F on the current up to the high-tech supersport LEXUS LFA enough bandwidth.

The detail of Gran Turismo ® 5 back to the perfectionism and obsession with Kazunori Yamauchi, who as a game designer and producer with his company since the start of Polyphony Digital Gran Turismo series 1997 revolutionized the world of racing games on the PlayStation. Yamauchi is driven by a passion for motor sport, he acts out not only in the virtual world, but in reality as a dedicated racer.

Kazunori Yamauchi

He is particularly indebted to the Gazoo Racing team and its for the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring constructed IS F: 2009 Yamauchi himself went with the vehicle in the 8th VLN race of the series on the North Loop to the start. In 2010 he returned to the Nürburgring and took part in the 24-hour race. Again, he steered it to the Lexus IS F by Gazoo Racing - and gave itself a proof of how close the virtual and the real world of motor sport are now available together. The Nordschleife and the Grand Prix circuit has been found for Gran Turismo ® 5 course, measured again in every detail. How many hours Yamauchi for their own preparation for the race to the virtual IS F Racing and Gran Turismo ® has trained 5 is not known.
