You know, it’s been a while since we heard from Kazunori Yamauchi and the crew at Polyphony Digital regarding the progress of Gran Turismo 6. You remember Gran Turismo 6, right? The latest chapter in the acclaimed racing game franchise for Sony’s PlayStation consoles that’s supposedly hitting store shelves 31 days from now? Yeah, that’s the one. Given the series’ reputation for lengthy gestation periods, we were really starting to worry about the chances of GT6 arriving on time.
Notice how we said “were,” because this latest trailer (plus a massive data dump on the official site that includes the 99.999% finalized car and track lists) indicates to us that this monolith of a video game is just about ready for rollout. Yeah, this video shows some of the heretofore unannounced cars (including the Ferrari 250 GTO and Jay Leno’s custom 1,000 horsepower, rear-drive-converted Oldsmobile Toronado) and some new tracks (Spain’s Ascari Race Resort and an interesting track inside a sports stadium), but HOLY HORSE VOMIT IT’S THE DAMN LUNAR ROVER ON THE DAMN MOON. If that doesn’t qualify as teabagging Forza Motorsport 5, what does, folks?
