Gran Turismo 5 Box Art, Trailer Unveiled

Next-Gen Gran Turismo To Arrive This Summer, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Graces Box Art

January 6, 2010 – It seems as though Gran Turismo 5 has been ages in the making. And it has been. But it’s finally coming to retail stores soon, and developer Polyphony Digital has released box art and a new trailer to confirm the exciting arrival.

Gran Turismo has a history of being the most realistic driving simulator in the world. Gran Turismo 5 will apparently boast nearly 1000 cars and will cross a broad spectrum of the racing world, from Formula One to NASCAR and Drag Racing. It will feature mechanical and external damage modeling, overturning cars, and stunning graphics. In addition, it will include many race tracks across the world.

Gran Turismo 5's box art must mean that the game will finally be coming out. Right? Please?

The box art features the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, a roughly $200,000 car that will arrive in 2011. In addition, the trailer shows off the SLS AMG as it tears apart road surfaces.

Gran Turismo 5 has an anticipated release of Summer 2010 in North America and March, 2010 in Japan.
