I can’t confirm this, but I’ve heard that Polyphony Digital’s upcoming Gran Turismo for Sony's PSP Go features quite a few cars (I’ve heard dozens, but that seems a bit high), and I’ve also heard tale that one of the staples of the franchise is that players are required to sink in some serious behind-the-wheel time in order to earn enough credits to unlock the meanest rides the games have to offer.
Well, Polyphony is letting players skip a few steps by giving them the chance to get their hands on some exclusive rides on day one. If you preorder the game (no word yet on what retailers will be included in the promotion), you’ll receive a voucher good for one of five of the game’s most sought after cars, complete with an exclusive paint job.
Here are the official details to get your engines running:
"2009 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 in the Black M color. Sporting a 16-cylinder engine with four turbochargers delivering over 1000hp, this is one of the most sought-after cars in the world, not to mention the fastest production car in the world. And by that, I mean it can do over 254mph."
"2002 Enzo Ferrari in Giallo Modena (yellow). With unmistakable Ferrari style and a 6.0-liter V-12 engine, this car should make it easy start racking up credits to start building your collection from the more than 800 cars in the game."
"2008 GTbyCitroen in yellow. You may remember this concept car and its sleek, futuristic style from last year when it was announced at the Paris Motor Show. This car is the result of a close collaboration between Polyphony Digital and the French automaker Citroen. And now it’s making its way into Gran Turismo for PSP."
"2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V (metallic blue). The new GT-R is one of the hottest cars on the market right now, complete with the in-dash multi-function meter designed by Polyphony Digital. The Spec V reduces overall weight and improves suspension and handling over the previous GT-R, making it even better for whipping around corners at high speeds. Now you can get this exclusive metallic blue color of the GT-R Spec V, on the PSP."
"1974 Lamborghini Countach LP400 in Arancio (orange). Yes, that’s right. Lamborghini. GT fans know this is special, as it marks the first time Lamborghini has ever been in Gran Turismo. And as you can imagine, this won’t be the last Lamborghini in a Gran Turismo game, either."
They're all pretty sweet rides, but you're sure to have a favorite...Well?
