At a base price starting at just under $200K, you can understand why high-end car makers like Ferrari would be loath to allow anybody to gratuitously crash and damage one of their cars...
Kazunori Yamauchi, CEO of Polyphony Digital, as well as creator and producer of the Gran Turismo series, is in talks with car makers, like Ferrari, to subject its cars to crash damage in their game.
System 3 developer at Ferrari Challenge said earlier this year that "convincing Ferrari to put damage on the cars was a 'big challenge.'"
Games are virtual reality, and ones like Forza 2 feature licensed car damage on a colossal scale. Everybody knows it's not real.
Anyone who has deep pockets to burn on a luxury vehicle, probably also has the fortitude to not be put off by seeing a busted Ferrari playing Gran Turismo.
