    Regardless of how weird and Japanese that commercial might be, that is a bit of marketing genius… and a great commercial. even though it’s only really about 10 seconds long.

    So far I guess all of them will be featured on GT5 (I have mi doubts about the Datsun 510), but all the other ones, they have been featured on last iterations of GT, or news.

      Did you see Impreza 2008 NON-Turbo?? (no hood scoop??) I have an ’09 Sedan 2.5i, would be sweet to drive it in GT5 and make upgrades, etc….

      Where in commercial and or making of vid did you see it?

      I remember the Subaru was a WRX STi white or silver, but i dont remember exactly which sec was…I didnt see any 2.5 version

    • Oct. 6, 1:20am

      It was on “making of” video

    • Oct. 6, 10:14am

      I saw the Impreza (white), is in sec 25, just 2 cars away from the F1´s

    • Oct. 7, 7:01pm
      BWX

      Yup I saw the white STI 5 door at 1:33.. No 2.5i

    You know what I love about that commercial? The simple fact that PD is so confident in GT5 they’ll make an add featuring toy cars to sell a video game.

    Lets see Turn 10 do that..

    • Oct. 5, 3:35pm
      Pie ‘n’ Peas

      Turn 10 is not a Japanese developer either…probably why they would not do a wacky ad like that! Besides, they are doing perfectly well with their Forza franchise, which happens to be a perfectly good racing game if you can step out of that bubble for one moment.

    At 1:05. The red car… Is that a BMW X6? Looks like it.

    That tune is a serious earworm. Haven’t stopped humming it since I watched the vid.

    Kyosho model cars.
    I love this puplicity, it’s not an agressive commercial film like we can see everywhere. It’s funny, cool, happynes, etc…

    It’s mind, enjoy with all this cars in GT5 !!!

    I also see they were using the same GT5 AI to control the cars.

      Funny!

    So were they Standard or Premium?

    I wonder if Kevin Butler’s GT5 commercial has produced yet. Should only be a matter of days or tops a week until it airs.

      That’s correct. I also spotted something like a 1977 RX7 Savannah, always missed that car in GT4 (not saying that all these cars are in GT5).

    That put a smile on my face, like this :)

    Nevermind. It’s the Mitsubishi i. Awww.

  25. Oct. 4, 3:27pm

    Chatocially funny.

    Also, if you pause it at about 1:16-1:17, you can see the little white microcar is a TATA Nano. I wonder if THAT’S in the game!

    Yellow Porsche (or RUF) 911 at 1:05 and possibly a red Panamera just behind.

    • Oct. 4, 3:47pm
      VeyronGlen

      The yellow car looks like an RX7 to me and the red one like an X6 or some SUV :/

    • Oct. 4, 11:20pm

      Looks a C5 Z06 and X6 to me you get a closer look in slo-mo at 1:15, anyone agree?

    Ahhh, that song’s stuck in my head again! Lol!

    Even tho they’re larger, it kind of reminds me of my Matchbox collection when I was a kid. I bought a car every week for about 4 years. Good times!

    haha that’s awesome … i’m gonna find all of my son’s cars, grab him, my camera, and a tripod and head to a park as soon as this damn rain stops. gonna make my own “we love cars” commercial. sadly, i won’t be able to take a film crew with me so there won’t be a “making of” video of my efforts.

    • Oct. 4, 3:19pm

      But you can do the dymanic weather version of this advertisment :D

    • Oct. 4, 6:11pm

      lol … that’s funny … could’ve seen some rain physics at play on a slide.

  32. Oct. 4, 2:12pm
    bucketseat

    All these cars have interiors…didn’t notice if they had working wipers or not since there didn’t seem to be any weather in this demo!
    Also…didn’t recognize the track…clear evidence of the track editor we’ve all been looking for…although I would have guessed they’d create a more interesting layout.
    Maybe I’m just “jonesin'” for a new fix of details. 2 Nov, while getting closer seems a ways away!

  33. Oct. 4, 2:08pm

    Do you think they only used cars that will be in the game for this commerical?

  34. Oct. 4, 1:58pm

    my collector’s edition will come with one of those cars =)

    I don’t like the sound. This is not at all what toy cars sound like.

    Does anybody else see the connection between GT5 and Canon DSLRs?
    1) There is this great DSLR Photomode in GT5.
    2) Some days ago, there where pictures from the RedBuul stuff with Yamauchi. There were Canon DSLRs used.
    3) I’m absolutely sure that this making of was made with a Canon DSLR. Not the commercial, but the making of.

      Well with all these new DSLRs filming in HD, they are poised to make film making a prosumer’s dream, and more convenient for everyone. With all the lens choices out there for these, I think a lot more things we see will be “filmed” this way.

    Does anyone know if these cars will be in GT5.Some of them are already in but the other ones not.I have a feeling they are not gonna be in the game and are just for commercial purposes, that’s my opinion because we almost already 1000 cars and these are more than that.

    • Oct. 4, 7:14pm
      LaBounti

      Many of them like the FT-86 slot car makes me wonder if these other cars will appear. I’m hoping the Starion and X6 make it. I’ will have to wear an adult diaper if I find you b’cuz I’ve been waiting since Sega GT to race with the Starion again.

    Well, no Smart in this game… What a shame!
    The smart Roadster is a really fun car to handle, and the smart fortwo with GSXR engine would have been pretty fun to play !

    Thank god Kaz wasn’t the director of that ad. It would’ve never been ready, because the cars bounced and crashed a lot.
