Gran Turismo 5 Trading In Crummy Cars For Premium Models

In driving simulator Gran Turismo 5, there are over 1,000 cars. However, only around two hundred of them are premium. That, however, is going to change.

GT5 designer Kazunori Yamauchi tells Japanese game mag Famitsu that there are plans to increase the number of premium cars through future updates. Yamauchi did not specify how many cars will be updated, nor did he reveal when future updates will hit.

The premium cars not only offer players a cockpit view, but they also feature more detailed modelling as well as working windshield wipers.

In other GT5 news, Sony Computer Entertainment today revealed that it is giving away three "Chrome Line" cars to Japanese gamers: a Lamborghini Murcielago LP 640, a BMW M3 coupe and a Jaguar XJ13 race car. The Chrome Line cars were originally DLC in special editions of GT5.
