Everyone's favorite car seduction simulator Gran Turismo 5 will be getting some free DLC tomorrow in the form of the 2014 Corvette Stingray. As far as test drives go, you could do far worse. Technically, the Corvette Stingray has been in the game since November last year, but "camouflaged" as part of a marketing campaign. The real-life car was unveiled January 13 and so the actual the camouflage comes off and the full car is available in-game.
"The Corvette Stingray will produce an estimated 450 horsepower and 450 ft. lbs. of torque, is capable of accelerating from 0-60 in less than four seconds and will achieve more than 1g in cornering grip. It will also be the most fuel-efficient Corvette ever, exceeding the EPA-estimated 26 MPG of the current model."
Considering how little I know and really care about cars, you'd think I'd be rather apathetic about this reveal. That was true right up until I watched the trailer for the Corvette Stingray DLC. Is it possible for a video game car to be sexy? Is it right? If not, I think I prefer to be wrong.
Gran Turismo 5 is a PlayStation 3 exclusive released in November, 2010. While the game received mixed reviews, there's no argument that it makes cars look good.
