For many, the Gran Tursimo series (a racing simulator renowned for its lifelike graphics and accurate physic models) was their first introduction to Japan’s legendary supercar, the Nissan GT-R. Previous generations of the car were sold in limited numbers to only a handful of markets outside of Japan but thanks to the game it developed cult status and awareness all over the world.

The creator of the series, Japanese developer Kazunori Yamauchi was recently given the chance to take the new R35 GT-R around the Nurburgring and his experience of the driving the track in real life is explained in this video.
