2010 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gets Cover Of Gran Turismo 5

Follow Nelson

Sony's much-anticipated and even-more-delayed Gran Turismo 5 is (for now) due out sometime this summer, but today we get to see the cover art for the game and a new video about Sony's collaboration with Mercedes-Benz to include the 2010 SLS AMG.

When it comes to vaporware, there's vaporware and then there's vaporware. In the realm of cars, the Tesla Model S is shaping up to be just such, Jason Calacanis's giveaway notwithstanding. But it's nothing on the scale of the computer world's capacity for vaporware, i.e. Duke Nukem Forever, a game that was in development for over 12 years before finally being canceled. Somewhere in between those two lies Gran Turismo 5.

Though it gives every indication that it will, eventually, come to fruition, the GT5's persistent and repeated delays have become something of a sore spot for fans of the series. Today's release of the cover art featuring the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG serves to whet that ravenous appetite, no doubt only making the hunger that much sharper.

According to Sony, the car's high-speed prowess and unique look were the deciding factors in selecting the SLS AMG out of the 950 cars included in the game.

  1. March is going to be a great month for PS3 owners: God of War III will be released, Final Fantasy XIII and also GT5 (hopefully). Awesome!!

  2. @valentines day,
    From what I've heard, GT5 will be coming out in March in JAPAN. That means it won't be coming out here until after that, and Europe probably even later. I'm looking forward to seeing if it blows Forza out of the water. I'm a long time GT fan, but Forza III is superb as well. It will be interesting to see how Sony/Polyphony ups their game (so to speak).

  3. I can't wait for this game! They have Koenigseggs, Lamborghinis, The Bugatti Veyron, Zonda's and most importantly DAMAGE!!! There's a video on youtube with some guy driving a damaged Ferrari 458 Italia! Crackin stuff!

  4. This is bound to be the biggest selling game we have seen in a while.
