Time for some track time with the Corvette

As Chevrolet takes the wraps off the all-new Corvette Stingray, fans of the Sony PS3 system will have the first chance to push the car to its limits in the Gran Turismo®5 racing game as the Corvette Stingray is now made available for download as a free content.

500,000 people have driven the camouflaged Corvette prototype after it was made available for download November last year.

“Getting behind the wheel of the all-new Corvette Stingray – the most powerful and sophisticated standard Corvette ever – is sure to be a thrilling experience,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Marketing.  “Through this unique collaboration with Gran Turismo, Chevrolet is able, for the first time, to give performance car enthusiasts access to such an exclusive driving experience the day after the Corvette Stingray’s world debut."

During the creation of the virtual Corvette Stingray, careful attention was paid to the tiniest details of the new design inside and out, as well as to the enhanced performance driving characteristics – down to the shift schedule for the seven-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Matching.

“The Polyphony team has had an unforgettable experience getting to know the Corvette Stingray, inside and out, and bringing it into Gran Turismo 5,” said Kazunori Yamauchi, president of Polyphony Digital Inc. “We’re excited to share our experience with fans and let them feel, explore and drive the Corvette in a way that wasn’t possible until now.”
