‘WHY THE HELL SHOULD I CARE?’

- Sports · Cars · Automobili Lamborghini · Gran Turismo · Gran Turismo Sport · Adrian Newey

⊲ Gran Turismo has trans­formed from cult rac­ing game to vir­tual show­room and rac­ing sim. It’s a di­rect link to a new and im­pres­sion­able au­di­ence for car brands but, for driv­ers, it’s also a cheap way into com­pet­i­tive sport… if you have ac­tual tal­ent.

⊲ Win­ning races at an eS­ports level isn’t just about brag­ging rights; there’s real money to be had here. The win­ner of the F1 driv­ers’ cham­pi­onship gets £500,000 – and two-time win­ner Bren­don Leigh now works as a sim­u­la­tor tester for the MercedesAM­G F1 team. Quite the ca­reer path for a gamer.

⊲ Give a de­signer a pen and ab­so­lutely no lim­its and you’ll get an ex­treme ver­sion of some of the most ex­otic cars in the world. Lam­borgh­ini’s V12 Vi­sion Gran Turismo is a feast of wings, LEDs and di users. Gran Turismo Sport also fea­tures the X2014, an F1 car of the fu­ture from Adrian Newey.
