Subaru BR-Z Revealed in Polyphony Digital Studio Tour

Gran Turismo 5 216 September 16, 2012 by

Before the Gran Turismo Asia Championship 2012, the finalists were invited on a tour of Polyphony Digital’s new offices in Tokyo. A video which features some highlights of the event has been released, and contains a few interesting surprises.

At approximately 1:35 in the clip above, a 3D model of the Subaru BR-Z is displayed on a Polyphony Digital employee’s computer screen. The car, though based on the Toyota 86 which was introduced in Gran Turismo 5 earlier this year, is considered a separate model and is not currently available in the game.

As pointed out by “Foxiol” in our forums, a potential clue can be found in the file name displayed, indicating the model is “for_event_00”.

Though it’s not specified what such an event may be, a possible candidate is the Tokyo Game Show – the last major international event for the video game industry in 2012 – which begins next Thursday, September 20.

“Flaco13” also noticed the file appears to be stored in a folder labeled “Geheimnis”, which is the German word for “secret”.

Stay tuned for full coverage of any news which may come out of the show next week!
