Gran Turismo 6 is now available to pre-order and again it’s the Tesla Model S featured in the video game trailer.

Dubbed the 15th Anniversary Edition, you’ll see the Model S appear a couple of times in this minute-long clip highlighting what’s bound to be one of the best racing games out there.

The Model S first appeared in the Gran Turismo 6 playable demo released earlier this summer ahead of this full-blown version.

The actual launch of the full GT6 is still set for sometime this “holiday season,” but you can pre-order your copy today.

GT6 marks the first time the Model S appears in the epic gaming series that is Gran Turismo.

We can only hope that Sony stayed true to form and portrayed the Model S accurately, as it certainly didn’t do with the Tesla Roadster in prior Gran Turismo releases.

    unfortunately, according to the track day reviews I’ve read on some of the Tesla forums, “accurate” in this context would be a couple of hot laps before the software starts limiting performance due to overheating in the battery, drive inverter, motor or all three… but those 2-3 laps are a blast!

      BTW, this is not a knock on Tesla, the track is simply not it’s core use scenario.

        Must have been a defective one. Take a look at this video of Model S running laps at “Willow Springs”:
