For years now—yes, years—we’ve been teased with patents and renderings and mysterious photos that led us to believe Honda was making a new, small mid-engine sports car often dubbed the “baby NSX.” That seemed too good to be true. And it was. We now know it’s a Gran Turismo-only concept, not a real car, and here it is…
The 2018 Maserati GranTurismo MC is old as all hell, but it’s still pretty and sounds great. It’s definitely best enjoyed through our senses of sight and hearing.
I think the reaction most people had when they found out I was driving a 2018 Maserati GranTurismo MC for the weekend was: “Holy hell, they still make that thing?” Yes, in fact, they do and the world is a more glorious place because of it.
In terms of dinosaurs, the 2018 Maserati GranTurismo kind of is one, as the first GranTurismo came out in 2007. Surprisingly, you can still buy one new today and you know what? It’s still pretty good. Especially the sound.
Nissan is no stranger to cool Gran Turismo tie-ins with its GT Academy program, but this one is as large as real life itself. They hooked up a GT-R to a PlayStation DualShock 4 controller and let it loose for remotely-controlled flying laps around Silverstone’s National Circuit.
Sorry everybody, but all of those intriguing patents and leaks seemingly showcasing a new small, probably mid-engined “baby” Honda NSX seem to just be another one of those Gran Turismo video game concept cars.
Cars: they’re just video games you can actually die in. So when car designers get a chance to play around in the gaming world, it’s a chance to be free of the rules that govern so much of what we drive. The latest Gran Turismo concept comes from McLaren, and it radically reimagines how a person would even operate a…
Modifying a car always makes it better. Stock cars are as bad as cars can be. These are lies, lies told to us by Gran Turismo.
Today we heard about an online scam artist who has good taste in automobiles as he managed to con a Maserati dealer out of a gorgeous 2014 GranTursimo coupe. He may have taken some inspiration from two of our favorite driving games.
A total of 140 drivable cars from real life and fantasy. Miles of paved and dirt track. Incredible physical realism and a dazzling sensation of speed. Is there any way that the best part of Gran Turismo Sport could be the freaking photography simulator sub-game? Yes.
Gran Turismo Sport, the latest in Sony’s epic racing sim series, is supposed to take multiplayer gaming to a new level with FIA-sanctioned online racing available to everyone. So how do you keep things civil and competitive?
The days of the “Kids, quit playing video games and go outside!” stereotype may just be over, because the new Gran Turismo Sport video game could land those kids in a real race car. A new partnership with the FIA means that in-game progress can now count toward a racing license with the association.
Gran Turismo Sport is the latest game in the epic PlayStation driving sim franchise. It’s coming out on November 15, 2016, but you can get your first taste of what just might be the most realistic driving experience you can have on your TV right here.
When I first saw the vague sketch Aston Martin released of its new halo car during today’s partnering announcement with Red Bull F1, I had to stare at it for about ten minutes before I figured out which direction it was pointed. Then it was clear: we (may) have seen this before!
You may remember Nissan’s Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo, which debuted in both Gran Turismo 6 DLC and real-life form at last year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. Now it’s back again for the Tokyo Motor Show, and it’s very, very red. I’m a fan.
This new Bugatti won’t even cost an entire Lamborghini more than the Veyron, mostly because it’s not real. Yet they will build a Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo show car for Frankfurt, and it’s the Veyron race car we’ve always needed. And I want to poke it.
Those squat, boxy-looking sketches of the Mini Clubman Gran Turismo Vision Concept don't do it justice. The actual in-game car looks badass and I want it. Why, oh why, can't it be real?
Mini is the latest company to jump on the Gran Turismo Vision Concept bandwagon, and the car they're cooking up for GT6 is appropriately bonkers. An aggressive bodykit, two "barn" doors, and 395 horsepower make for the coolest Mini Clubman I've ever seen, even if it's not real.
How effective is the GT Academy, where Nissan picks the best gamers from Gran Turismo to train and turn into real-life racing drivers? We'll see this year at Le Mans. By putting GT Academy grads in their LMP1-class race car, we'll finally see them go head-to-head with some of the best driving talent in the world.
