The unveiling of the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray has been an exciting event for the auto industry, but the happiest people all of them all are Gran Turismo 5 video gamers, who come Tuesday morning will be able to use this car in the game without camouflage.
Including the new Corvette in the GT5 has been a part of the promotional campaign GM started months before the unveiling, but the gamers could only drive a heavily camo’d version of it. That kinda spoiled the whole point, because in a video game you won’t get any sense of driving whatsoever. The only thing you can get is a good look at a virtual 3D model of the car.
Now the Stingray is available in full, joining the other six generations of the Corvette available in the game.
Driving the new Corvette in the real world may prove a bit harder than before, as the Stingray is much more advanced than the previous generation, and that will affect the price. The new car features carbon fiber body panels, a high-quality, high-tech interior, and a new V8 engine.
