New Chevrolet Corvette C7 Prototype Now Available in Gran Turismo 5 [video]

If you fire up your PlayStation 3 today, you’ll have a chance to become part of Corvette history by downloading the upcoming Corvette C7 test prototype.

Chevrolet and Gran Turismo franchise developer Polyphony Digital collaborated to provide an authentic driving experience in a seventh-generation Corvette prototype currently available to only a handful of people in the world.

“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.”

The new seventh-generation Corvette is not the first one to appear in Gran Turismo, all six previous generations have been part of the popular racing game, though it is the first Corvette and first car to appear in the game as a test prototype.

Chevrolet will introduce the seventh-generation 2014 Corvette in January at the Detroit Auto Show.
