Widely praised for its exacting standards of realism, our most recent 'Shop Contest took Gran Turismo to the opposite extreme, with extremely hilarious results.
The task: Create a panorama in which Gran Turismo 5's cars would be indistinguishable from real autos or, conversely, where other cars would be noticeably out of place. The latter was the path most chose.
Fictitious vehicles were all the rage, including Cat Van (1) and Mutt Cutts (7); Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (6), KITT (9) and The Ecto-1 (10, with real specs). Iconic real vehicles included the Weinermobile (13) and O.J. Simpson's white Ford Bronco (19, leading an apparent higher speed chase).
Everyone tried a Mario Kart entry it seems; shadowsquid's was the best of that bunch. Capall provided the requisite Minecraft entry, Sam-B93 the requisite Inception entry, and Zinger314 the requisite (but very well done) Tiananmen Square tank entry.
Ding-ding! It's the shit-mobile; CoreyandTrevor (4) didn't have to try hard with his, but that doesn't mean it's not guffaw-inducing. Sonic4Ever is our obligatory serious entry, with a perfect inclusion of a non-GT5 car. Hunter's Motorstorm mashup was a personal favorite. Overall, my No. 1 is cheat2win's (3), bringing the stock car back to NASCAR.
Congratulations to all finalists. Take a bow, we'll see you back here tomorrow.
