A (Very) Brief Look at Production Car Damage in GT5

Gran Turismo 5 92 January 30, 2010 by

Here’s an example of when bad driving turned out to be a good thing, as it provides a quick (very quick…as in 2 seconds) but somewhat interesting peek at the scaled-down production car damage in Gran Turismo 5. As you may recall, there will be two types of damage models in the game: one for racing cars and one for standard, production cars. While the damaged Subaru WRX WRC car, with missing bumpers and doors, has become a rather familiar sight, the less aggressive damage modeling has remained a bit more mysterious.

Watch closely in the video above and shortly after 0:53, when the driver nails a yellow Gallardo going into the first turn of Tokyo R246, and you’ll see several dark scratches on the side of the car around the area of impact. Thanks to Tomaz for digging this up a few weeks ago!
