Video: the new Corvette in Gran Turismo

To try and drum up interest in the new ‘vette, Polyphony is letting gamers download the car for free so you can do your own digital development testing around the ‘ring. Unfortunately, there’s no feedback screen so you can’t tell them what you think, and even more annoyingly, it doesn’t give any clues away about what it’ll look like.
 
Both the interior and exterior are slapped in camouflage, so you’ll have to wait until the debut in Detroit on January 13th for the unveiling. Until then, you’ll just have to imagine what it looks like.

Ferrari teases “Most powerful Ferrari ever”, we prepare

Note to self: on February 29, 2012, Ferrari will unveil the successor to it’s big grand tourer the Ferrari 599. In order to tease us, it’s released a video… of it’s sound:

All we have at the moment is this teaser video, released with the sole, merciless aim of coaxing us into a fizz with the promise that “a new era of extreme V12 cars dawns”. Messrs Alonso and Massa appear to have stolen the keys to a prototype too, as the two Ferrari hotfoots take it out for a spin.

It’s the successor to the much feted 599 - codenamed F152 - and by definition, will need to produce more than the 660bhp of the FF’s 6.2-litre V12 (the most powerful Ferrari on sale today) and the 670bhp 599 GTO. Think 700bhp, and you’re probably about there.

Expect the GTB’s first appearance at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. In the meantime, you can visit TopGear.com for more info.
