    Good, now some premium Aussie cars… :)

  2. Oct. 3, 6:19am

    Too much excited! So much good tracks! Wtf GT6 is too great

  3. Oct. 3, 6:13am

    What a great job PD have done on this track, it looks absolutely gorgeous, & I can’t wait to go for a drive on it! :D

  4. Oct. 3, 6:05am


  5. Oct. 3, 5:36am

    I hope the sounds used in this video, will be some future updated sounds in the game. That would be sick!

  6. Oct. 3, 5:29am

    Is it too early to say that with this track coming to GT, is a hint of GTA coming to AUS too?

  7. Oct. 3, 5:16am

    This video just oozes passion for Motorsport! A passion that only Gran Turismo seems to be able to capture!

  8. Oct. 3, 5:08am

    Great video!!
    Engine sound!!!

  9. Oct. 3, 4:52am

    I just wish there will be any brand new Australian cars in GT6?

    Really great to have this track.

  11. Oct. 3, 3:58am

    this is wot i,ve been waiting 4, nurbergring 24hr and gp , sarthe , spa , laguna etc and now this track, racing will be sweet as

  12. Oct. 3, 3:46am

    Hopefully this track is playable for the EB Expo in Sydney this weekend.

    Incomplete without V8 Supercars. Or V8 Utes.

    • Oct. 3, 3:29am

      Who’s to say they won’t be coming?

    • Oct. 3, 4:20am

      Exactly Elf, that’s what I think we will get to find out next week at the 1000 I’m hoping!

    • Oct. 3, 7:24am

      That’d be cool – the track begs for some classic V8s. If no news soon, then I’m really betting on a Bathurst car pack.

    • Oct. 3, 7:41am

      Well Elf, the other “top secret” Australian location should be the right time to introduce V8s and typical Australian automotive selections. Remember, every month is DLC, and every DLC contains one circuit, which I personally think it’s likely it is related to the theme of the cars selected in the DLC.

    • Oct. 3, 8:31am

      Something else to keep in mind is the fact that we’ve only been told of 25 cars that ARE coming to GT6 out of 200! There are still 175 cars we don’t know about yet!!!
      Will our Aussie V8’s be amongst them? Hard to say at the moment, but if there’s going to be 2 Aussie tracks, it stands to reason that there’d be PREMIUM Aussie cars too!

    • Oct. 3, 9:50am

      Yup, I was going to mention the 200 new cars but forgot the number for some reason (probably getting old) so I do think it stands to reason. Hell, if we can have a bunch of NASCAR then the V8s deserve a few premiums too.

      Off the subject, but still on about the 200 new cars (well, 170+ now) I think maybe the Triumph GT6 might get included – with a name like that, it just has to…

    • Oct. 3, 5:12pm

      The “Trumpy” GT6 would have to come in and, if it does, so would the TR7!

      Also, on cars that SHOULD be in the game, the MG X-POWER would be nice! In GT5, one of the paint colours we were “given” was called X-Power Grey! That’s right, an FR, V8 MG! If you want to know more about this car, follow this link –

      With regards to a Bathurst pack of cars, I was thinking an Australian pack of road cars with the option to race modify and have a choice of 8 liveries per car! It would save PD doubling up on cars!!!

    • Oct. 4, 1:59pm

      Codemasters hinted at a TR7 rally version for D3 but that appeared to fall through – I’ve been wanting one in a game ever since…

  14. Oct. 3, 2:45am

    Looks great, this will be the first track I drive.

    I never thought I’d see Mark Taylors head in a GT game but there you go. Onya Tubby!

    • Oct. 3, 3:13am

      Time to make The Donut King Monaro, Commodore and GT-R

  15. Oct. 3, 2:35am

    That’s a lovely track :)

  16. Oct. 3, 2:32am

    It looks so official on the Gran Turismo website. :D

  17. Oct. 3, 2:21am


  18. Oct. 3, 2:21am

    Im so excited!!!!!

    • Oct. 3, 5:10am

      cant wait to play GT6!!!

  19. Oct. 3, 2:16am


  20. Oct. 3, 2:11am

    Engine sound,

  21. Oct. 3, 2:01am

    For those who are asking the name of the song: Akihasa Yamaguchi - The First Person – LINK on YOUTUBE: /watch?v=4YQbhVWYqko

  22. Oct. 3, 1:44am

    Wonderful new track with day/night transition! Now it would be nice to have many V8 cars from historic to actual ones.

  23. Oct. 3, 1:24am

    YES. Everything is ok now.

    • Oct. 3, 4:20am

      The track list has shaped up very nicely so far!

  24. Oct. 3, 1:09am

    Man their attention to detail on this track is insane. It’s GTA V-like

    • Oct. 3, 3:01pm

      It’s definitely one of the “Premium” tracks.

  25. Oct. 3, 1:02am

    Man, I knew it was coming but it is just amazing to finally see it.

    best rendition of the track so far.

  26. Oct. 3, 1:01am

    Now we need some V8s+ a plain body version of every V8 and a livery editor

  27. Oct. 3, 12:40am

    THAT!…sounds amazing.

    • Oct. 3, 1:26am

      Looks amazing, sounds amazing. I’m hoping this is a preview for what their sound generation is going to be like when they patch the game. Because the sound is this video, is just amazing.

  28. Oct. 3, 12:18am

    I know there are a number of skeptics at present re the sounds which are brilliant in the concept vid, but Kaz has been openly saying that they (PD) are working on this but as ccar795 states below “I’m thinking, Polyphony is using the trailers as a testing area for the new sounds” does this not make some sense?
    Of course the announcement has been made about these being patched in day 1 but can we at least look at this with an optimistic view to a change in PD, GT6 is already shaping up to be the best GT yet, the new cars already announced, the tracks, the course maker and the physics have all had snippets shown in some way shape or form.
    Once again let’s not jump to conclusions and make assumptions about what we are or are not getting til we see what release day and patch bring, for me things are looking very promising!

  29. Oct. 3, 12:07am

    The sound in the video was amazing. I hope at some point the in-game sound is equally as good.

  30. Oct. 3, 12:07am

    Wonder if it’ll sound like that in the game after a few hundred updates. The circuit looks gorgeous though. I guess that’s the most important part, huh? ;)

    • Oct. 3, 12:24am

      The most important are the cars to represent the Mountain. Turn 10 said theyll have 2 cars but, could be a full grid of V8SC as thwy have done prwviously. GT6 need to have the Altimas at the minimum. Im sure the sounds for the race cars will be food. As far as the road cars, Im not worried. Most of my gaming experience is invested in Gran Turismo. All I can picture is me only racing on the Mpuntain for 24hours. Id happily race back to back to back as soon as I pick up my pre-order.

      Just realised I’ll be at the Sydney 500 when the came comes out!!!

    • Oct. 3, 12:26am

      Please excuse the typos. Got a Samsung tablet and it seems a bit slow in the typing department.

  31. Oct. 3, 12:06am

    I tell you, if PD do attend and have some simulators down there and they have some a V8 Supercar Demo, I say, they win.

    • Oct. 3, 12:08am


  32. Oct. 2, 11:52pm

    Ok, time to fix my PS3…

    • Oct. 3, 3:15am

      63 days are still a long wait. And yes, we all hope for that sound to be soon in-game sound!

  33. Oct. 2, 11:52pm

    does anyone know the name of this trailer song ????
    and cool video -_-

  34. Oct. 2, 11:41pm

    I’m thinking, Polyphony is using the trailers as a testing area for the new sounds? :o

    • Oct. 3, 12:19am

      It’s a good line of thought, here is hoping

    • Oct. 3, 7:51am

      but some of the cars in the spec 2.0 and original opening movie still sound similar. Such as the Mercedes SLS when it’s at the nurb and trailing the Ford GT.. But in my opinion, when you can close your eyes, and it sounds like your at Le Mans on the pit straight, and its on a game…

      That will be awesome.

  35. Oct. 2, 11:41pm

    Oh and also. It does look like PD is listening to their fans, because I remember from the feedback section this track was highly requested. And the fact that Bathurst is in GT6 now, this proves PD does listen to their fans no matter how much the naysayers say they don’t.

    Lets jump in glee everyone, W00T!!!!! ;D

    • Oct. 3, 3:38pm

      May be PD can do night time in Monaco. Plus, Yas Marina circuit with day/night cycle and Singapore F1 street circuit.
      Toko, do you reckon Yas Marina is high up on the tracks requested by fans list?

    • Oct. 3, 9:30pm

      Sadly it wasn’t sangdude82. :( But I wish it was though. Maybe someday we’ll see I hope, but I can wait. We got the course maker. :D

    • Oct. 3, 10:15pm

      Lame, Yas is spectacular and beats the living you know what out of a lot of other tracks. I would also like Circuit Paul Ricard as well!

  36. Oct. 2, 11:39pm

    This might have been one of the worst kept secrets in Gran Turismo history, lol, I feel as if PD was just like “Well we might as well acknowledge it already.” Still this is very very cool and the GT6 concept movies are still, as always, pure sex.

    • Oct. 3, 12:05am

      True 500 but as the saying goes it’s no deal til the cash is in the bank or PD officially confirm, now the fun begins!

  37. Oct. 2, 11:35pm

    Engines sound like engines!!

  38. Oct. 2, 11:29pm

    I have this feeling telling me that those engine sounds are what PD are working on. 0.0

    • Oct. 3, 1:06am

      It really could be. Getting a few cars right is easy. Getting 1200 cars to all have the same fidelity is quite a task.

      Eitherway I have faith they can deliver better sounds. The core sound of the LFA in GT5 was amazing. All it needed was maybe a little extra oomph and some ambient sounds to go with it and it would be perfect.

    • Oct. 3, 9:30pm

      +1 TomBrady. :D

  39. Oct. 2, 11:26pm

    I’m always a fan of new tracks!

    But I have to ask, why are there never any fans at a lot of the tracks in the GT series?

  40. Oct. 2, 10:56pm

    looks good but tire physics still looks behind Live For Speed tire physics…. no sidewall flex at all on any car that I could see…. hopefully they fix that along with allowing tire pressure adjustments…. only time will tell I guess…… hopefully some premium V8 supercars also….

  41. Oct. 2, 10:55pm

    this is amazing Bathurst is on next weekend

    • Oct. 2, 11:40pm

      Thanks for reminding me!

    • Oct. 2, 11:43pm

      Really!? Sweet! Thanks for reminding everyone skyhighguy86, was well needed. :)

    • Oct. 3, 3:39pm

      Yeah, it is on 10-13 October :)

  42. Oct. 2, 10:49pm

    Down Under we’d say PD has got on the front foot and smashed this one out of the park right over Long Off and cleared the Members Grandstand – luv’ ya’ work PD. :)

    • Oct. 2, 11:36pm

      I ‘d call that a fair shake of the sauce bottle.

  43. Oct. 2, 10:47pm
    Madman Apex

    its a shame that the cockpit camera/driver’s head wont bounce around like that in the finished game

  44. Oct. 2, 10:46pm

    I reckon the Nissan V8SC cars will be in the game. Nissan will want international recognition for their factory V8 Team and considering they sponsor GT Academy they’ll be in there.

  45. Oct. 2, 10:41pm
    Mr C5 Z06 Vette

    An R18 at Bathurst, that’ll be the day

    • Oct. 2, 11:24pm

      the same was once said about a black president and a female prime minister

  46. Oct. 2, 10:37pm
    Mr C5 Z06 Vette

    If only we can get some aussie V8 supercars (or V8 hypercars as I call them) and we’d be able to host an online bathurst 1000 using the new way to organize events that was looked upon briefly a while ago when we saw the new online room layout

    • Oct. 3, 12:08am

      No sign of any in this trailer, but they could be leaving it to reveal (if there are any) until the actual Bathurst event. Gotta say I’m doubtful though at this stage.

  47. Oct. 2, 10:21pm

    New engine sounds!

    • Oct. 2, 11:28pm

      Dubbed in.

  48. Oct. 2, 10:18pm

    Did they model the entire area around the track too?

    • Oct. 2, 10:52pm


  49. Oct. 2, 10:17pm
    Pit Crew

    One sound PD gets right without updates IMO, is the music to these official gt6 videos. Always seem to fit the atmosphere of the on screen action.

    Those sounds samples are quite promising but please PD, don’t touch the Ford GT Spec 2 Test Car, or any Ford GT for that matter.

    • Oct. 2, 11:45pm

      + 1 PC, they always do a great job with evoking drama and anticipation with the music, cut scenes and slow mo’s to create that atmosphere you discussed.

  50. Oct. 2, 10:09pm

    Just need:
    2 Red Bull Racing Australia Commodores
    2 Norton 360 ALTIMAS
    2 Erebus Motorsport AMGs
    2 Volvo/Polestar S60s
    2 HRT Commodores
    2 DJR Falcoms
    2 BJR Commodores
    And we have our 16 cars for full grid!
    Or we can have the top 10 cars and PD add the Torana A9X, Brock’s Comodore, the Moffat Falcon coupes, Tuff Green Falcon, Winfield GT-R, SHELL Sierra, JPS 635CSi, TWR Jaguar and Greg Murphy Kmart “Lap of the gods” Commodore. For starters…

    • Oct. 2, 10:16pm

      You forgot to mention the Jim Beam Racing Altimas & Gibson Motorsport ‘you are pack of a******s’ R32 Skyline GT-R :D

    • Oct. 2, 11:11pm

      Thats the Winfield GT-R :)

      Jack Daniels Altimas wont fly in a Gran Turismo game. :(

    • Oct. 3, 3:45pm

      You reckon they won’t include Jack Daniels ones because PD doesn’t want to be the part of promoting alcohol brand? Oh, true… Winfield is a cigarette company, right? I wonder what PD will say about cigarette companies.

  51. Oct. 2, 9:54pm

    Although the sounds are dubbed, at least it shows that PD are aware what the cars should be sounding like.

    • Oct. 2, 10:03pm

      Despite my comment below, I think your comment explains it better. PD definitely knows how these cars should sound, so there is no excuse now not to fix them in-game.

      I’m not very demanding. They don’t have to use ultra-realistic sounds as long as each car sounds how it’s supposed to. The early videos of the Mercedes SLS GT3 sounded like a V12. If in this video they did make it sound like a V8, then they know, and as I said before, there is no excuse not to make it that way in the game.

    • Oct. 2, 11:31pm

      did you guys not ever see any GT5 promos? They did the exact same crap. At the end of one in particular was a superGT Xanavi GTR flying by the camera on the ‘ring making a RAUCUS sound.

      They’ve been dubbing/placeholding/falsifying for 3+ years now. There is no proof of a new direction here.

  52. Oct. 2, 9:48pm

    Forget Bathurst!! The sounds finally start to show some promise!!

    • Oct. 2, 9:51pm

      Yes they are just thrown in and still wrong in some cases, but the fact that they did it is a step in the right direction…

    • Oct. 2, 10:00pm

      hold on a sec. Those sounds could very well be just added for effects, but it’s surprising that some of these sounds do match with the car they are placed in. That Pagani did sound like a V12, the SLS GT3 sounded like a V8 unlike in the demo videos… I don’t want to jump into conclusions, but after waiting for so long, could it be that they are finally doing it right?

      If GT6 goes out and the Pagani still has the BMW M5’s V10 sample, after they made it sound correct in this video, I will feel a bit disappointed.

    • Oct. 2, 10:22pm

      Prepare to be disappointed then Husky.

    • Oct. 2, 11:06pm

      Yes, it wouldn’t surprise me. PD has done things backwards before regarding sounds. A good example: Mercedes Benz CL600, BMW M3 E46, among a couple others that had their sound right in GT4 and not in GT5.

  53. Oct. 2, 9:45pm

    The grass on Bathhurst is needed on Nurburgring and other furry stages like these, so it won’t look so damn clean cut all the time as if someone has the best gardeners in the worlds working on those circuits every few weeks. Bathurst 24hr anyone!?!?

    • Oct. 2, 10:20pm

      I’ve noticed about the grass too. They look more natural.

  54. Oct. 2, 9:43pm

    Ok awesome but we can’t have Bathurst with no FPV’s PD was gay for not putting them in GT5 an I want some V8 supercars not another ten GTR’s

    • Oct. 2, 10:02pm

      I’m gay and I would’ve kept the FPV cars!

    • Oct. 2, 11:34pm

      Yes of course they are, all of them at PD were on a float at the Sydney mardis gras might be coming as DLC. This boils down to licensing again. You had an FPV in GT5 Seton’s numver 5 2000 XR8 this will be in GT6 regardless of whether or not others are. However more of the V8’s are needed Holden, Ford, Nissan & AMG

    • Oct. 4, 11:53am

      And next year’s Volvo!

      FPV & FPR are not the be all and end all of Australian motorsport!

  55. Oct. 2, 9:42pm

    And it keeps getting better :)

  56. Oct. 2, 9:33pm

    Some of the background textures look awful.

    Oh well, new track.

    • Oct. 3, 12:22am

      Could just be the angle of the shot?

  57. Oct. 2, 9:27pm

    Pd don’t listen my A….

  58. Oct. 2, 9:24pm

    Cute video.

  59. Oct. 2, 9:20pm


  60. Oct. 2, 9:08pm

    How long till someone smashes Jenson Button’s lap record?

    Having driven it in an old ovlov and spectated there I can’t wait.

  61. Oct. 2, 9:07pm

    I used to listen to that track everyday from the GT5 music library, was so nice to hear it in this video. Was a really nice surprise for me.
    Once GT6 is in my PS3, that eject button will never be pressed ever again! GTA 5 will start collecting dust from the 6th December lol

  62. Oct. 2, 9:05pm

    The first thing I’m doing when I’m able to is I’m taking the Ford Falcon XR8 out for a track day here. V8 SUPERCARS RULES!

    • Oct. 2, 9:13pm

      Unless there are (in amongst the 200 new cars) some newer Aussie V8 Supercars…

    • Oct. 2, 9:17pm

      I’m taking a NASCAR out on it… that would be fun!

  63. Oct. 2, 8:59pm

    I was really happy just reading the title…that i’ve watched the video.. day night circle. Time to use the ”take my money” meme, probably.

    • Oct. 2, 9:00pm


    • Oct. 3, 4:00am

      Me too – when I saw the track has day/night I went straight back and watched it again. Some really great views there too.

  64. Oct. 2, 8:41pm
    Pit Crew

    Whew, thank goodness that’s over lol.

  65. Oct. 2, 8:39pm

    Nice video! Damn I told myself not to buy GT6 right away but I guess I would need to break my promise to myself. :)

    • Oct. 2, 8:45pm

      Lamo :)

  66. Oct. 2, 8:38pm

    Called it! lol

  67. Oct. 2, 8:38pm

    Hahahahaha, they even got Tubby’s mug on the Fujitsu sponsorship with the pic of the SLS, A cricket legend being immortalised in a car game, well played Mark Taylor well played, so much win in that alone!

  68. Oct. 2, 8:33pm

    I´m already hypped as it is just to get to race in Bathurst in GT6, and better yet, it can be at night, it would just be kick-ass if PD also gave the game some aussie V8 Supercars or just some australian cars.

    • Oct. 2, 9:41pm

      Holden (GM) – FJ, EH, HG Premier, HG Ute, HG Monaro, HK Kingswood, HK Monaro, HQ Premier, HQ Monaro, WB Ute, XU-1 Torana, A9X Torana (SLR5000), VF Sedan, VF Ute, Efijy concept.
      Ford – XY GT-HO Phase III, XC Coupe, XC Cobra, FG Ute, FG Sedan
      AND – HSV & FPV vehicles…

      Quick history note – Holden has won at Bathurst more than any other make of car!

    • Oct. 2, 10:09pm

      Well, thanks to Sir Peter Brock :)

    • Oct. 3, 7:34am

      Of course Holden have won more than any other manufacturer – Ford and Holden ensured they’ve had the last 20 years stitched up so no other manufacturers could compete.

      That’s like having Manchester United and Aston Villa as the only two teams playing in the Premier League for the past 20 years and marvelling that Man U have won more titles than anyone else….

  69. Oct. 2, 8:31pm

    What an awesome video! PD….I salute.

  70. Oct. 2, 8:27pm

    This morning (PST) I was strangely telling to myself that they were gonna release trailer today

    Not disappointed…

  71. Oct. 2, 8:27pm

    Now please give us more Australian cars besides the old VY Commodore SS and Monaro. We need the Ford Falcons, Valiant Pacer and E39 Charger too!

    • Oct. 2, 8:30pm
      Ittybitty Stigy

      Pretty sure there is a Falcon in GT5.

    • Oct. 2, 8:52pm

      There is a Falcon in GT5.

  76. Oct. 2, 8:17pm

    *%&^ ME!!!!!! It does not get much more real than that! I have had the privilege of driving this amazing track before as I have mentioned previously and from what I can see they have nailed it the way PD do when they deliver! Anyone who has never experienced this racing masterpiece is going to be blown away and it will become a favorite of yours very quickly.

    I was highly surprised though they did not wait til next week to make the announcement however this is extremely welcomed news. Looking forward to see if Phillip Island or Surfers Paradise or even Sandown, Melbourne GP or Adelaide GP to a lesser extent are on or two of the other Aussie tracks that will make GT6.

    This was something I have been waiting 15 years to see Mt Panorama in a GT game and as a Proud Aussie this is just pure magic!

    • Oct. 2, 8:21pm

      I think PD has decided to release the trailer today to counter the screenshots of Bathurst from Forza 5. I bet those two developers will bring their version of the track to Bathurst 1000 and we gonna see some game plays :)

    • Oct. 2, 8:25pm

      Makes me wanna up and get down there for the race next weekend Sang so I can see them if that’s the case any GT / Forza fans that will be there are going to have an epic time if they do!!!!

  77. Oct. 2, 8:14pm

    Looks sick!

  78. Oct. 2, 8:11pm


  79. Oct. 2, 8:11pm

    Now, will we get some love on Aussie road & racing cars?

    • Oct. 2, 8:26pm

      We can only hope!!!! Maybe that’s what will get announced race weekend now that the track is 100% confirmed

  80. Oct. 2, 8:10pm

    The Downshifts look really matched up with the sound for it to be dubbed, i hope its in game :(

  81. Oct. 2, 8:09pm

    I’m really going to enjoy the track during the night and going into night fall. This will be another favorite among the community.

    • Oct. 2, 8:29pm

      Doesn’t get much better! Awesome another 24 hour track to go along with Nurb, Sarthe and Spa which all run 24hr events. Peeps will go ballistic with this!

    • Oct. 2, 9:08pm

      It would be 1000 times cooler if FIA GT Series, Blancpain Endurance Series (24hr like Spa) & World Endurance Championship could come to Bathurst in the near future.

    • Oct. 2, 9:30pm

      Agreed Sang, I would love nothing more than to see an Audi R18 in full flight along Conrod would be just epic. Any of those series would benefit from having Mt Panorama in it’s season program.

  82. Oct. 2, 8:07pm

    So, I guess that both PD & Turn 10 will have the booths set up on Bathurst 1000 next week so people can have a taste on their version of Bathurst.

  83. Oct. 2, 8:04pm

    Amazing!!! Our spy at Bathurst was quite accurate with his info after all. lol

    Show more PD and put those sounds in the game!

    • Oct. 2, 8:56pm

      Although I’m certain those sounds are dubbed over I’m also mildly optimistic that they are also indicative of the sounds PD are trying to arrive at with their “breakthrough”. While I don’t really buy into the whole sound debate (I get it – but it’s not a deal-breaker for me), there’s no denying that GT’s sounds are fairly flat and thin, and that the sound in the trailer has much more ‘phat’ and is way more dynamic which adds greatly to the atmosphere and overall experience.

  84. Oct. 2, 8:02pm

    GreAt Job gt6

  85. Oct. 2, 8:01pm

    Fantastic track and can’t wait until I drive one of the best circuits in the world

    • Oct. 2, 8:30pm

      You are gonna looooove this!!!

  86. Oct. 2, 7:59pm

    Knew it, don’t know why anyone’s surprised, what were they going to do? Save it for DLC, or until GT7?

    • Oct. 2, 8:01pm

      DLC was always a possibility.

  87. Oct. 2, 7:57pm

    Bathurst! Finally for the NZ/Aussies!

    • Oct. 2, 8:04pm

      Oh yeah, I’m gonna have so much fun racing on Bathurst :)

    • Oct. 2, 8:10pm

      Same here! Can’t wait to see how Skyline looks before diving down into the Esses – PD hopefully will have nailed the gradient and everything!!!

  88. Oct. 2, 7:57pm

    One more reason I require this game to finish off my short but sweet stay in the 7th console generation.

  89. Oct. 2, 7:53pm

    The trailer is nice, despite the dubbed sounds.

  90. Oct. 2, 7:52pm

    At last, some good news!

    • Oct. 3, 4:16am

      Well, there has been other good news as well – but this is good too, agreed.

  91. Oct. 2, 7:52pm

    The downshifts from the onboard shots sound excellent!

  92. Oct. 2, 7:48pm

    Those engine sounds are awesome… looks beautiful too

    • Oct. 2, 7:51pm

      Shame they’re overdubbed, just like most Gran Turismo trailers.

  93. Oct. 2, 7:47pm

    I’m drooling!

  94. Oct. 2, 7:46pm

    Wow that looks amazing! Are you sure that’s on a PS3?? GT6 is gonna rock!!!

  95. Oct. 2, 7:43pm

    Bye bye Forza. At least until the Xbox One gets much cheaper and has decent wheels. But by then GT7 will be out anyways :)

    • Oct. 2, 9:35pm

      Turn 10 will be long gone after GT7 is released. If PD can make GT8 like what they did with GT5 on PS3, except on PS4, then I am pretty sure that every other racing game company will die. Bye bye, Turn 10, and Code Masters.

  96. Oct. 2, 7:43pm

    He’ll Yes! Beautiful Background Music! :)

  97. Oct. 2, 7:42pm

    This is very good news indeedy!

  98. Oct. 2, 7:40pm

    Wait for the comments from Toko. Haha :)

    • Oct. 2, 7:41pm

      Oh yes, haha. Toko will have a heart attack if Yas Marina Circuit comes to GT6 xD

    • Oct. 2, 8:00pm

      I think Toko saw the video and passed out around the 45 second mark. Soon as he comes to, he’ll be posting here…lol..

    • Oct. 2, 8:05pm

      Someone better send an ambulance to Toko’s place lol.

    • Oct. 2, 8:21pm

      Make that 2 heart attacks, I am chomping at the bit now we have the Mountain and if we also get the Marina then I will be stretched out along with Toko!

    • Oct. 2, 8:24pm

      Haha. You guys are funny. xD Love GTPlanet. :)

  99. Oct. 2, 7:40pm

    OMFG!!! It looks f**king amazing :D

  100. Oct. 2, 7:40pm

    Looks absolutely epic. Credit where credit is due, well done Kaz and PD!!! I don’t know if we’re hearing placeholders or not, but it sounds awfully good too. Day/Night too!!!

    • Oct. 2, 7:41pm

      Do you reckon it will have the weather option as well?

    • Oct. 2, 7:46pm

      Sounds are clearly dubbed, as usual.

    • Oct. 2, 8:00pm

      No idea about weather, have to wait and see.

      How do you know they are dubbed Samus, other than they are too good relative to anything PD has done before? Is it possible it’s part of the sound breakthrough they’ve been working on? I have no idea, just curious…

    • Oct. 2, 8:22pm

      absolutely JP, Kudos Kaz and PD!!!!!

    • Oct. 2, 8:23pm

      Agreed Johnnypenso!! +1 Well done Kaz and PD! :D

    • Oct. 2, 8:35pm

      I think the dubbed sound (it is probably dubbed or could be the sample of the new sound that PD were working on) isn’t the concern for most of us here right now :)

    • Oct. 2, 10:42pm

      @sangdude82. you can’t have Bathurst without weather. have you seen some of the downpours we have had there in the past

    • Oct. 3, 4:08am

      They have weather in Oz sangdude? I mean other other than horrifically sunny all of the time ;)

    • Oct. 3, 4:15am

      Damn, didn’t see Papapepe’s comment there…

    • Oct. 3, 3:48pm

      Was it 1991 Bathurst where the Winfield Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R has won the race under the red flag? That day was raining like hell.
