Corvette C7 Prototype released as free DLC!

6 posts in this topic

Chevrolet and Polyphony Digital formally announced their special collaboration on the next-generation C7 model corvette today at the Los Angeles International Auto Show.

First spotted in Gran Turismo 5 by GTPlanet community members earlier this month, the heavily camouflaged prototype will be drivable in the game “today” by downloading the car as free DLC from the PlayStation Store.

“Until now, only the most skilled drivers on the Corvette team have been authorized to push the test prototypes to the limits on some of the most challenging track surfaces in the world,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Global Marketing. “Through this unique collaboration with Gran Turismo, Chevrolet is able, for the first time, to give performance car enthusiasts access to such an exclusive driving experience.”

“Gran Turismo has had many firsts and we’re excited to partner with Chevrolet for yet another – bringing the first-ever Chevrolet prototype vehicle into a racing game,” said Kazunori Yamauchi. “As car enthusiasts, we’re thrilled to give fans this extraordinary level of access to the seventh generation Corvette that otherwise would not be possible.”

Chevrolet will formally reveal the 2014 Corvette prototype on Sunday, January 13, 2013.

You can't beat free, but it will still look pretty goofy driving that thing around with the cover on it. And judging b the video, it looks to have a pattern like the Lamborghini in that picture which is used so you can't really see the lines of the car.

That's exactly the kind of pattern it has under the vinyl. You can see it a little better in the first-person view. Breaks up the silhouette when viewing it on the test courses, since that's the company's copyright and all.

I like the car so far. It likes to slide, but it's a fun ride.

I expect once the car is unveiled in real life Polyphony will remove the cover, just like the GT-R in Gran Turismo 5: Prologue. That's why there is a masked version of the GT-R in Gran Turismo 5 if any of you are wondering. :P

Oh, and I'll post my thoughts on the car once I get chance to drive it.
