When fans fire up their PlayStation3 (PS3) systems they’ll have a chance to become part of Corvette history.
Chevrolet and Sony Computer Entertainment America, LLC (SCEA) are giving gamers a first-of-its-kind driving experience by offering a camouflaged Corvette C7 Test Prototype as a vehicle download in the critically acclaimed PS3 racing game Gran Turismo5.
Chevrolet and Polyphony Digital Inc., the developers of the award-winning Gran Turismo franchise, collaborated to provide an authentic driving experience in a seventh generation Corvette prototype currently available to only a handful of people in the world.
During the creation of the virtual Corvette prototype, careful attention was paid to the tiniest details from the creases and wrinkles in the soft camouflage used to disguise the new design to specific driving characteristics that are currently being tuned and refined ahead of the vehicle’s official debut in January.
The camouflaged Corvette C7 Test Prototype is immediately available for download through the PlayStation Store from your PlayStation3 at no additional cost and can be driven on some of the world’s renowned race tracks, including Daytona International Speedway and the infamous Nurburgring – one of the track surfaces used in testing to evaluate the new Corvette’s driving dynamics.
