THE GAME

The appeal of the Gran Turismo series is due significantly to its graphics, a large number of licensed vehicles, attention to vehicle detail, accurate driving physics emulation, and the ability to tune performance, hence the subtitle "The Real Driving Simulator", incorporated to the franchise's iconography since Gran Turismo 4.

Handling of the vehicles is modelled on real-life driving impressions, tuning is based on principles of physics, and the sound of the vehicle's engine is based on recordings of the actual vehicles. The game has been a flagship for the PlayStation console's graphics capabilities, and is often used to demonstrate the system's potential.

THE CAR

Toyota GR Supra RZ '19

-

This flagship Toyota model, which carries over the inline 6 cylinder engine and rear wheel drive, is headed by chief engineer Tetsuya Tada, who also brought the Toyota 86 to life. Under the slogan "Numbers are one thing, feeling is what matters", he proceeded to create a car that speaks to the senses of the driver. Optimally balanced with a 50:50 weight distribution and a low centre of gravity, it provides powerful acceleration with a twin scroll turbo. The quick handling enabled by the wide body and short wheelbase is a result of a pursuit to achieve an ideal sports car, and its glamorous and elegant form and straight six engine sound combines to gives it an aura that is unrivalled by others.

The sportscar was developed for not only real motorsports but also with competition in Gran Turismo Sport in mind. Expectations are high for its glory in both real and virtual racing.
