The Die-Cast Underbelly Of Gran Turismo 5

Illustration for article titled The Die-Cast Underbelly Of Gran Turismo 5

The underside of a Gran Turismo 5 racer reveals this curiosity: the logo for die-cast collectible maker AutoArt (lower side, center).

AutoArt's made Gran Turismo models before (that actually is the Nismo Skyline GTR, the same car depicted in the screenshot), and GT5 studio Polyphony Digital has plenty of the collectibles on hand.

No one's suggesting they base the entire car on AutoArt die-casts, but it looks like at least a generic undercarriage from one was used here.

Update: Looks like this is an Easter Egg. Reader ShiryuGN supplies this picture of an actual AutoArt undercarriage; it has no logo, like the one above.

Am I the only one who wishes Polyphony would include weird little easter eggs like toys and bodies that come flying out of trunks when the cars are sufficiently damaged, etc.?
