Gran Turismo 5 goes to Nürburgring

Sony has revealed that Gran Turismo 5 will feature all three courses of world-renowned racing complex Nürburgring when it releases for PlayStation 3 later this year.

The Nürburgring tracks are known for being extremely challenging and only suited for cars of high performance. Gran Turismo 5 features all three of these courses: the Grand Prix course, the Nordschleife, and the Nürburgring 24 Hours course.

“For a car enthusiast, the Nürburgring is the equivalent to what places like the “Eiger Nordwand” or “Mount Everest” means to a mountaineer,” Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi said. “There is that special allure about it that you just can’t explain in words.”
