Corvette C7 Prototype in Gran Turismo 5 as Free DLC Today, New Video & Screenshots Released

November 28th, 2012 by Jordan

Chevrolet and Polyphony Digital formally announced their special collaboration on the next-generation C7 model corvette today at the Los Angeles International Auto Show.

First spotted in Gran Turismo 5 by GTPlanet community members earlier this month, the heavily camouflaged prototype will be drivable in the game “today” by downloading the car as free DLC from the PlayStation Store.

According to the press release, Polyphony Digital paid careful attention to every detail in the creases and wrinkles in the soft camouflage, used to disguise the prototype while its driving characteristics are currently being tuned and refined ahead of the vehicle’s official debut in January.

“Until now, only the most skilled drivers on the Corvette team have been authorized to push the test prototypes to the limits on some of the most challenging track surfaces in the world,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Global 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.”

“Gran Turismo has had many firsts and we’re excited to partner with Chevrolet for yet another – bringing the first-ever Chevrolet prototype vehicle into a racing game,” said Kazunori Yamauchi. “As car enthusiasts, we’re thrilled to give fans this extraordinary level of access to the seventh generation Corvette that otherwise would not be possible.”

Chevrolet will formally reveal the 2014 Corvette prototype on Sunday, January 13, 2013. More information on the announcement will be available at One13Thirteen.com.

    Two years later and people still griping, perhaps you should have stopped playing a year ago or something. You aren’t the perfect definition of insane but you are bloody close to it.

    Interesting that PD released this freebie, close to christmas I wonder what we will get for a christmas present this year? Perhaps PD can notch some stuff with Ford, BMW, AUDI and others for the hook up with soon to be released cars. Would love the new M3 GT and Ford Mustang ’13 and Camaro LT1. Hey it’s cool if we don’t get it, I have got my money’s worth out of this game and I’m close to 90% and I haven’t touched A Spec Extreme in almost a year. Spend all my time buying cars, hoarding money and tuning anything and everything to run on comfort tires.

    Honestly I thought PD was done with this game, but I guess not.

      I feel the same about everything you mentioned.

      I have the “best” feeling that since we didn’t actually get anything for the two year anniversary of GT5, that we’re going to be getting something amazing for the 15th Year Anniversary of the Series. Think about it. Why release an update or something else and saying, “Hey, here’s a gift for the two years that GT5’s been out,” instead of mentioning the 15 years that GT’s been around for. That was a complex sentence for me to articulate so excuse me if it’s confusing.

      The release of this car doesn’t necessarily mean that PD will support GT5 like they have been all this time. It’s a sign of it, but it isn’t definite, you know?

    HAHA! I just tried the new Vette around the Nurburgring! I love it when PD comes up with these unexpected surprises.

    I’m surprised auto manufacturers haven’t thought about unveiling cars through video games before… I mean… Is there even a downside? And now people will get to test the car virtually, so they won’t have any worry of the car being damaged, and potentially more sales on the car if it’s good. And it could lead to better and more realistic competition, so the manufacturers will push the developers to make the games as realistic as possible, and have the brands fight severely with each other to make the best car. Win-win for consumers.

      This is Gran Turismo :) Not their first collaboration with the auto industry and hopefully not the last! I love it that they do this kind of projects!

      Have you forgotten the GT by Citroen? Or the reveal and unlocking of the R35, literally as it was unveiled in real life? There are some others too. Check out PD’s official site.

    I love the humour of offereing the car with cover – a nice touch.

    • Nov. 29, 3:22am
      XPOWER180

      It’s got nothing to do with humour! If you take the time to read the article it explains that only a few Chevrolet test drivers have been allowed to drive the car and push it to it’s limits so in a collaboration with PD they are sharing the driving experiance ahead of it’s official release.

    • Nov. 29, 4:31am
      MeanElf

      I don’t think you’re understanding what I said. I realise that the wraps are ther for a reason and due to that they offer a car still wrapped…hence the humour.

      Chiil dude…

    • Nov. 29, 5:05am
      another_jakhole

      ?
      Seriously. Explain what you’re on about. Not messing about, some of us are slow to comprehend the “obvious”.

    • Nov. 29, 6:45am
      MeanElf

      I thought it funny, as in amusing that the car is offered and driveable whilst still under it’s wrap; at least I’m assuming so like in the promo vid.

      Now I may be wrong, as like so many, I cannot download it from the store just yet – but that appealed to my sense of humour, driving a car around with a cover on it – just seemed like a good, fun idea.

      No big deal really…and now the joke is spoiled.

    • Nov. 29, 3:24pm
      Bom15

      I didn’t get the joke either. But manufacturers do it all the time. And it’s not like a ‘wrapped’ car hasn’t been in GT5 before. Nissan GTR Black mask.

      These cars usually get driven to and from places on public roads. Or as part of the development anyway. It’s under a wrap so other manufacturers don’t copy the styling until it’s released. There’s usually slight differences in styling between concepts and development cars. Adding a car into a game during development is a good move. Raises the cars profile and therefore create more sales. Also if GT5 is as realistic as it said to be. It could also help development.

      Jaguar XK mk2 went to Goodwood FoS a few years ago wearing a wrap. This year they took the F-type and Mercedes took a C63 Estate. I think it was a C63. And I also hope that it was a sort of wrap to hide certain things. It was done up with Zebra stripes. Not nice.

    • Nov. 30, 3:21am
      MeanElf

      Well I do have a somewhat unusual sense of humour, so don’t take it personally.

    • Dec. 4, 3:17am
      MeanElf

      Bom, I’m not sure that the Black Mask is the same kind of thing – as I’ve seen other cars driving around on the roads with the same style ‘mask’ on the bonnet.

      I agree with him though. I’m happy to get the C7 but I’d much rather have the new Viper. It sucks that Flopza has it but not GT. No biggie though. Viper > Corvette

    I knew that PD was going to give their fans something this month, this is one of the best gifts ever for GT5. The C7 handles amazingly compared to the C6.

    Wait, what? Is this for real?!!?? I’ll go check right now! And if it is, does it mean that we will be able to buy the production model some time soon?

    • Nov. 29, 12:39am

      Hopefully, but when that is unveiled & released, it’ll probably cost $0.99. Not that I’m complaining

    • Nov. 29, 1:33am
      HuskyGT

      I have like 3 bucks in my wallet now that I’ve checked, so I think that’s enough to buy anything that PD might trow at us in the near future. I just tried the car and it feels ok.

      It’s such a shame about that that even words can’t describe how wrong that is. If we get an event on the next go around, that would be awesome actually. By far, it’ll give people enough time to get the hang of the car.

    Fix the lacking a-spec and the ridiculously stupid and bad ai. Fix the shifting simulation. Then I’ll care about gt again. Right now GT5 (and all of GT) is completely DEAD. Kaz did a great job of killing it..

    • Nov. 29, 1:13am
      Quakebass

      He is kinda right, but I don’t think this will be fixed in GT5. Maybe an extended A-Spec, but not much else. So if these issues won’t allow him to enjoy a game he once loved, I think he has right to complain. I can still find enjoyment in the game, so I don’t need to complain as much. But as soon as I run out of things to do, everything BWX has said is what I will be saying, for in my eyes, these are the most pressing issues in GT5. I’m excited for this new car, too, but there’s a lot to be fixed in the game aside from that. It’s one car, this is is many, MANY other issues.

    • Nov. 29, 1:38am

      Thanks a lot, sayba2th. I mean, the man is CONSTANTLY (even consistently) being like this.

    • Nov. 29, 11:28pm
      Quakebass

      Well, he’s fed up with some issues that could have been fixed. Some couldn’t have, but an extended A-Spec is DEFINITELY something that could’ve been and still can be done, but isn’t. So I think he has a right to post these complaints if he can’t be satisfied with the game and the developers won’t seem to do much about it. BUT, as I’ve said, I don’t think anything other than an extended A-Spec can or will be fixed, or is WORTH being fixed in GT5 before GT6. I’d just say save it all for GT6. So I partially agree with his point, but also disagree with some of it.

    “…we’re thrilled to give fans this extraordinary level of access to the seventh generation Corvette that otherwise would not be possible.” -K.Yamauchi

    … like when an rFactor modder creates one with more accurate physics and sounds in, maybe, a week? At home? Certainly a possibility.

    To Polyphony Digital / Sony: Keep this man on a non-stop Autoshow/Tradeshow/Only-Car-In-Class Nurburgring Race tour for the duration. He is much more suited to things of that nature. The fans of this franchise are calling for a Racing simulator. More cars are nice, but what are we to do with them? Take photos? What would this game be like if the career progression had some Life to it? What if you hired a proportionate ratio of A.I. Programmers to Car Modelers- in 2010 it was a 2/29 ratio (5 of which are ‘car modeling directors’). Come on now. It doesn’t have to be 1/1, but 2/29 is killing us. Some sort of actual Tire model, detailed force-feedback settings, and telemetry wouldn’t hurt either. You really can make GT a top-level sim AND playable for the masses at the same time. Two-way communication with your patrons, meaningful study of your competition, and a full and rapid maturation of your decision-making processes is the only way that you stand a chance of long term prosperity. We all hope to see you succeed.

      Because we very well know that these fixes are possible, we just aren’t sure if PD will listen, and we’re trying to make absolutely CERTAIN that they get our message so we don’t end up with these issues in another game and have to suffer for another 3-5 years, depending on how long it takes GT7 to be developed.

      What spoiler? I’m probably dense but the tyre menu doesn’t look any different than it usually does. However, I am also happy to see the ‘Vette having only chassis reinforcement and the only tuning being ballast, engine limiter, brake balance, and tyres. I’m looking forward to the January release and hopefully the actual C7 will be out for GT5 very shortly after.

      BTW for those who don’t know the C7 is now in the new car dealer for $100,000, Level 12.

    Wow, GT5 needs more epic camera angles like in this video, hopefully it could be in GT6. The sunset scenes brought some tears to my eyes. GT5 nailed it on this video. Thanks for the car too!

      Totally agree! The shaking camera is SO much more realistic than the stedycam in GT5 that makes every single replay boring..! This video was AWESOME!

      It’s the just the effect of altering the gain and contrast – if you look the textures of the ground look exactly like the green grass and gravel of Le Sarthe.

    • Nov. 28, 7:05pm
      Xamado7V

      IMO It’s 1000% La Sarthe – and it’s not snow its just the lighting/effects. : )

    • Nov. 28, 7:14pm
      Dowlin39

      I reckon it’s just that Partial Color effect like they have in game for photos. It’s definitely La Sarthe though.

    • Nov. 28, 7:15pm
      timapexward

      Really , 1000% , 100 not good enough anymore.

      Now you mention it it looks like a partial colour filter , shame , sarth in the snow would have been fun

    • Nov. 28, 7:46pm

      @timapexward – I used 1000% for emphasis. So drop it and don’t be such a Pratt.

    If only they would work on the sound engine as detailed as they do on the graphics to replicate the real car.. still happy to see a new car added to Gran Turismo 5 after 2 years, just lost my hope about joyful sounds in this game, which takes away a lot of the excitement for me personally. I’m still curious how it looks in detail, how it sounds (it should be decent at least) and feels overall (will it deliver that special feel of driving a unique prototype car still in development?).

    • Nov. 28, 6:43pm
      Doober

      This car might not have the real sounds because it hasn’t been actually released. There might be some stuff they aren’t allowed to do etc.

    It would be nice if the existing Corvettes RM versions didn’t push like a truck! We had an online race recently,and there was a common theme…piece of junk. I think the car is one of the coolest RM in the game,but overall driving should feel just as good as both of the Camaro race models! I hope GT5 can adress this problem soon!
