Video: Tesla Model S Makes Gran Turismo 6 Debut
MAY 15 2013 BY ERIC LOVEDAY
Okay, so perhaps a Tesla Model S is beyond your budget or maybe it’s not.
Never fear, there’s still a way to pilot the thrilling electric machine and it’ll set you back way less than $100.
Coming this July is the first playable demo of the automotive video game equivalent of the real deal: Gran Turismo.
Actually, it’ll be a a demo version of Gran Turismo 6 (GT6) that’s released this summer ahead of the launch of the full version “this holiday season.”
And, for the first time ever, the Model S makes its appearance in the epic gaming series that is Gran Turismo.
This isn’t a run-of-the-mill Model S. Nope. Sony went all out here by including the Tesla Model S Signature Performance edition in Gran Turismo 6.
We’re geeked, that’s for sure.
Sure, there are loads of those gas-burning relics in GT6, but it’s the Model S that truly the most electrifying, in more ways than one.
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.
Mark your calendars! GT6 is coming in demo form this July and with it the Model S debuts on the Gran Turismo scene.
(Video note: the Model S appears just before the 1-minute mark)
