Gran Turismo for PSP: A quick review

GTPSP_coversheet_Mech1

Earlier today, I picked up a copy of Gran Turismo for my little PSP.

The game does NOT have a Career Mode as Playstation versions of Gran Turismo have previously had.  In those versions, you can collect cars, compete in multi-car races, and keep a garage with a collection.  In this version, the gamemakers have NOT incorporated those features.  Basically it is single player race mode, time trial mode, and then a series of driving challenges to win you money and open up new cars you can buy with that money.

I think the purpose of this game was to give people a copy of their favourite tracks in the world—-to keep in their pocket, and play whenever one wants.  And for that purpose alone, GT for PSP is a superstar. Fantastic graphics and gameplay, and superb rendering of classic race tracks such as Suzuka, Nurburgring, Laguna Seca, etc.  All in all, a very cool idea.  I AM HOOKED ON the NURBURGRING, as always!

9/10.

NEW Bugatti on the way?

373911796

Rumour, according to Jalopnik this morning was that there was some sort of ‘secret’ Bugatti 100 year anniversary event, by invitation only—where photos of a special car which is gonna be released to coincide with the 100 year anniversary, were leaked (see above photo!).  Supposedly, this car is going to be debut’d at the Frankfurt Auto Show in the autumn.

Rumours are saying it’s a sedan—they’re probably right, but here’s hoping that it is a grand touring coupe.  That would be FLY.

something like this, maybe?

Lancia Aurelia B20 GT on Auction!

Y’know that car in the IEDEI banner up at the top of this blog? That’s what this car is.  I almost NEVER see this on auction OR on sale in the USA…..and this one has a buy-it-now of $50,000.  What a gorgeous car.  This is the car Nuvolari used to drive around in when he wasn’t racing……

Anyone got a spare $50,000 lying around?
