Monaco F1 Circuit in Gran Turismo 5, Yamauchi Interview

Gran Turismo 5 83 October 21, 2010 by

Car Magazine has just posted a new interview with Kazunori Yamauchi, as part of their big feature on the Red Bull X1 Prototype. It’s a good read (keep in mind it was conducted before the delay), but the most interesting revelation actually comes from a small new screenshot included in the article, taken from inside the X1’s cockpit at the Monaco F1 circuit.

Of course, the track is not new to the series – it first appeared in GT3 as “Cote d’Azur” (renamed, presumably, for licensing reasons), and it’s good to know it’s back for GT5. The screenshot is taken from the turn-out of the Grand Hotel Hairpin, one of the tightest, slowest, and most famous corners in Formula 1 (here’s a real-world photo of the hotel in the background, along with a screenshot from the same location in GT PSP). The article also included another new shot of the X1 passing the Colosseum at Rome:

Thanks to everyone in our forums for picking up on this!
