Kazunori Talks About Gran Turismo’s Beginnings in PistonHeads Interview

Interviews 95 September 1, 2012 by

Automotive news website PistonHeads had a brief chance to talk with Kazunori Yamauchi during his recent visit to the EU GT Academy 2012 finals.

The questions focus on the early days of the Gran Turismo series, and include a few interesting responses from Kazunori about the first game’s development:

“… When I first developed the game, I didn’t even have a chance to look at the European super sports cars. I called directly to the automobile manufacturers, can you meet me, I asked. I would see anyone available.

It was a bit of luck – lucky to get to know that car. No deep meaning, just about getting to know that car. I loved cars. I read lots of car magazines ever since I was at junior school.”

Head on over to PH’s website for the full transcript.
