Camouflaged Corvette C7 Appears in Gran Turismo 5

November 11th, 2012 by Jordan

Two very curious reported discoveries in GTPlanet’s Forums are attracting quite a bit of attention today.

The most significant comes from GTPlanet user jstickboy13, who reports having seen a camouflaged Corvette C7 appear during one of the game’s “screen saver” sessions, which displays race replays or Photomode locations during period of player inactivity.

GTPlanet user edwinpr also saw the car, and was able to verify jstickboy13’s claims with the following video.

UPDATE: GTPlanet user Furinkazen has also confirmed the car’s existence and recorded another video.

Close observers will note the car’s license plate appears to display the word “POLYPHONY” in the blue stripe along the top. Those following development of the new Corvette will recognize it from many recent spy shots which have been published in the automotive media.

The inclusion of a camouflaged car is, of course, not unprecedented for the Gran Turismo series; GT5 Prologue introduced a camouflaged version of the Nissan GT-R, which was later updated in the game after the car was officially unveiled.

The second curious sighting comes from GTPlanet user Ferraridude308, who reports having spotted a striped Lamborghini Aventador in Gran Turismo 5‘s online Photo Stream website. However, since this blog post was originally composed, the suspicious stripes have since been proven to be shadows cast on the car.

As always, stay tuned in to our forums as our community continues to analyse, discuss, and verify these claims.

UPDATE: GTPlanet user priesty_lfc has now captured new photos of the Corvette C7:

    Just go ahead and release it now! We can drive it with the cover on.

    GT6 no doubt will have TONS of dlc .. Sony is testing the waters with micro transactions * cough cough* last Bach of cars .. And uncharted has micro transactions for everything in the game * even stuff you can unlock* hopefully it docent go that far but imagine getting 500 Premiums PLUS 3-6 new cars a month… ;P

    Doesn’t PD try try to make exact and true to life detailed models of each manufactures vehicle, with that said, it’s possible that they could pull the covers off this Vette whenever Chevy is ready to make the official debuts.

      To be honest that’s the detail I care mostly about, because it shows PD think about real license plates, imagine they would introduce a license plate editor to GT6 (or GT5 Spec III… speculations FTW) where you can choose from real countries and than choose custom characters…

      I don’t think that we’ll be getting much of that at this point… So all I really want for this game is event packs. The seasonals just aren’t cutting it for me. And at least SLIGHTLY improved AI algorithms, and same physics online as offline.

    Look at post #163 and down. People are recreating the stripes already. And i don’t know if you don’t know this but not all shadows on GT5 are blocky

    If there Shadows on the Lambo then why are they perfect and not jagged at the edges? And there to well aligned to be shadows.

    @ topolino

    Are you really wanting to be that ignorant?
    Have you ever seen a car with everything covered driving around where you live? If not well i used to live in Michigan about 20 minutes from Detroit and i had seen this many times. Pretty cool actually. I always tried to guess which car they are. I had seen the 2003 viper & 2005 Mustang before.
    I am sure the zebra print isn’t the final result. But the covering looks just like what I had seen in Michigan for years.

    But come on bro. Why can’t you be satisfied? They don’t have to bring it in at all. Be happy.

    Pretty sure the C7 will be coming soon considering it says in the dealership 17 cars but there are only 16 cars at the moment.

    As for the rumored chrome line avantador. No it is shadows creating the stripes on the car at SSRX. And these stripes have been recreated on other cars and probably more as we speak.

    I wouldn’t say that the Corvette C7 is camouflaged exactly, its more like a disguise that is a common practice used by manufactures to put on development vehicles (just like the Nissan with the black mask). They are used to obviously disguise the shape of the vehicle underneath from prying eyes. I’m sorry if I have missed that if anybody else has already made this comment.

      Camouflaged… just leave it at that.

    • Nov. 12, 2:18pm
      seanchump

      Camouflage is the correct term in this case since it applies to an object and not a person. The definition of camouflage is a set of methods of concealment that allows otherwise visible objects to remain unnoticed by blending with their environment or by resembling something else. A disguise conceals or changes a person’s physical appearance. Camouflage is a type of disguise for people, animals and objects.

    Right on!!! Another Corvette up for a Viper butt kickin! But thinking twice about the ‘C7′ nomenclature as Mr. Reeves Callaway used it in the 90s. I’d rather PD get around to TCing or RMing the SRT10 like they did the ZR-1 AND ZO6. Think it would more appropriate?

      Am I the only one that noticed how PD, instead of doing small things in a 2.9.1, then 2.9.2, etc., saves all of those small things for an update with a new tenths (or, rarely, a new ones) digit? I can’t remember an update for GT5 with 3 numerical digits.

  25. Nov. 12, 6:30am
    Tvensky

    I like when developer puts some hints and hidden stuff for users to discover… :)

    For now the only reason I dont play GT5 as much as in the release time is because of tracks… lack of tracks is the biggest issue… If ps update GT5 with about 30 new tracks or sell them in DLC… I could play GT5 for 3 more years with no need for GT6…

    Cars are already amazing in this game.. but lack of tracks makes GT5 life cycle for me way too short…..

    and thanks for fixing online, it seems I dont get online lobby freeze anymore and online itself is more stable… thank you!

      Unfortunately GT5 is getting old .. we all need an improvement, good to see some new cars, I really enjoy driving from the last update, multiplayer is now more stable … but we all need Tracks to play in the next 2 or 3 years.

      we don’t need GT6 with more tracks…

      @HarVee No events??! I organize and join professional multiplayer events every week… and we almost get bored to drive on the same tracks! … we are all waiting Project Cars to do something new.

    • Nov. 12, 2:56pm
      SZRT Ice

      I too agree with the lack of tracks issue. And I for one love these “wish list” threads. Because it shows the diversity amongst GT players on the front page. Many do not take the time to go into the forums to find info, so this tends to be the best (albeit, least productive) place to get people talking about what would make GT better.

      Mind you, not everyone who comes on this site posts. Many just like to read what others have to say. So for every one post, there are likely around 1,000+ views. But for the forums, It’s more like a 1:10 ratio.

      As for my 2 cents.
      Tracks (Mainly fantasy tracks with dynamic landscapes. A waterfall for instance, or an oceanside drive with a dynamic sunset, a 2-lane road through corn fields with crop dusting planes doing fly by’s, etc.), dynamic seasons (leaves on track during the fall, snow, etc.), no invisible barriers (or at least set them back 10 – 15 yards),

      Customization (let kids be kids and adults be adult (GT is meant for everyone to enjoy. Would be great for racing teams and online racing leagues, or simply to express your own style and individuality. Content concerns? Make a private lobby or host it, be selective on who you allow & pipe it. We can also save replays and take photos so if you really must, a report feature is not hard to implicate. Even TDU2 has one).

      Further rim, tire, bodykit, & race mods, waterpooling on select rally and street tracks (puddles, splash effect, hydroplaning), destructable barriers, dynamic crashes (your tire should be capable of rolling off the car if impacted “correctly”, certain accidents with damage on should be considered “race enders” and dirty driving penalizations should be severe (disqualifications) which would also be great for skill improvement/racing leagues.

      More race types. Point to point racing (street and rally), D1 (we already drift weekly online and it’s in the GTTV section}, Drag (I know people and teams that only drag and nothing else, yet we have no official drag tracks, system, etc., touge/kaido, street/highway. Terrain changes and grip variations (gravel for instance or DiRT styled real world rally courses). and ofcourse a GT free roam would be a dream.

      This is more of a GT7/PS4 wishlist, obviously this is not possible via update and it would be too much for GT6 or would push it back a decade. But any of these things implemented into GT would be a tremendous improvement in MY OPINION.

    I’ve mentioned before how GT5 had cars in the photos of the endurance races that are now in DLC. The Prologue Corvette in Nurburgring 4hours, the TC LANCER in Tsukuba 9 hours.

    • Nov. 12, 5:02am
      SCER

      The TC Lancer and the Lancer from GT Prologue are completely different cars; the TC Lancer is a more WRC styled car with single projector headlights and a WRC style wing as well as off road tyres, the GT Prologue Lancer was a street modified Lancer, with a subtle lip kit and a typical aftermarket style wing, as well as low profile tyres and a GT front window banner.

      The Corvette doesn’t feature in any DLC as far as I can recall.

      It’s a shame that PD don’t add those cars though, if it’s because they weren’t based on a real car they wouldn’t have released the TC DLC pack.

      That would be awesome, but I doubt it. If we ever get that feature (and that’s a big if), they wouldn’t release two years later for a game they aren’t keen on heavily supporting. As they said with DLC, they don’t want to use all the best of their new stuff now, they want to save some for GT6.

      What else I don’t get is how PD is doing something no developer won’t think of doing? Adding cars into a game is not a new concept and putting in hidden content and keeping it a secret is ridiculous and annoying. PD is too silent as it is.

      Daniel’s right. It’s all well and good that two hundred and fourty cars or thereabouts are immaculate, but you can’t pretend that the eight hundred standard cars aren’t there.

      That said, two hundred immaculate cars and eight hundred standard cars is still better than any Forza offering, in my opinion. Sure, Forza cars are better than standard cars, but they never look real and breath taking like some of the Gran Turismo premium cars do.

    • Nov. 11, 10:56pm

      Amac500

      I agree, I never count standard when talking about the cars in the game. When comparing to Forza I have to include them, then point out how many if those cars are crap and that I’d much rather have Forza’s car list :P. The premium cars in GT5 and the psychics are still just so much better though :)

      I think I get what you’re saying TokoTurismo.

      I think that Gran Turismo 5 is the only genuine driving simulator on PS3 or X-box. Forza is like a cross between Gran Turismo and Need For Speed in my eyes.

      @SCER: Yes, and Forza is putting the proper fun factors that NFS used to have. Forza’s doing just about everything right, just the physics are slightly behind. I have a feeling that T10 will catch up, and soon, though.

      Like the others said, not driven yet. But this Corvette is suppose to be much improved. Instead of a plasticy body, one of the popular rumors is that Chevy is making the body out of a combination of carbon fiber and fiberglass, which will be interesting. The fiberglass will make the carbon harder to break and can also use it to influence air flow. That’s a big improvement. There is also talk of it being mid-engined, 50/50 if that will happen. Paddle shifts are suppose to be tere. Trust me, they found some stuff and it’s much improved over all. That stuff is strictly what I’ve heard and found in media. My uncle works at General Motors and he told me about some stuff they found, it has alot of improvements. A lot of people forget that the Corvette is competing on the level with the likes of Ferrari with the 458 and other supercars, but have far less funding and are much more under-resourced for it, which is impressive. Because Chevy is just an average car company, not a big performance car maker like Ferrari and Porsche and such, but they keep up. They found alot of stuff the others found out about a long time ago, this car will be impressive.

      Carbon fiber and fiberglass? On this Vette C7? Really? Now I like this one better than the new Viper. :) This car is very special.

    • Nov. 11, 11:43pm
      Amac500

      I know the plan at least was carbonfiber mixed with fiber glass. There was an article in either Road & Track or Car & Driver in like January and I know that carbon fiber has been on their lost anyways. The only way it doesn’t is if costs are to much, there is a world wide shortage if carbon fiber. If that doesn’t make the C7, which will be ready for the 2014 car year, watch for the LT4 for the 2015 car year. The LT4 is suppose to be like how there was the SS Camero and then the more expensive high performance ZL1 Camero. They are going to do that with the Corvette C7 and the Corvette LT4, which for example will have about 550-ish hp compare to the normal C7 which should have 480-500 hp.

    I am kind of surprised to see the Vette this soon in GT. It’s nice to see some surpring stuff in the game though I am still waiting for the SRT Viper :( I envy those of you that can drive it in Forza…
    I wonder if this would be a free DLC car. I don’t know if many people would pay for a car they couldn’t even see (it doesn’t seem to have cockpit either). I have seen some renderings predicting how the car would look like and I’ve noticed that the car appears to have rounded tail lights in the game as opposed to the Camaro style rectangular ones on the renderings. That’s interesting…

    Maybe the Aventador is new maybe. Maybe its a new chrome line and they will release packs with new chrome lines and new stealths with or without the old ones so everybody wins that preordered etc. Pure speculation but fun to dream.
