STI, NSX, RX-Vision - Others Make Cameos in Gran Turismo 7 Preview

For those of us who indulge in a little (or maybe more than a little) gaming, these are heady times, as Sony recently (finally!) previewed what its next-generation console, the PlayStation 5, is capable of. Alongside the likes of a new, fuller teaser for Grand Theft Auto V, the Japanese company showed off the latest iteration of its storied Gran Turismo franchise—and it looks absolutely fantastic.

Dubbed Gran Turismo 7, the racing game sounds quite good, too. Watch the preview video and gameplay demo and notice the wind and tire noise that makes its way into the cabin of the Mazda RX-Vision GT3 as it chases down a Porsche 917. The teaser also includes an appearance by an Aston Martin DBR9 from the golden years of GT endurance racing.

From the Editors of Super Street: Other vehicles you might notice in the trailer are a spinning WRX STI and taillights from the R35 GTR, 350Z and current gen. NSX. There's even a hint at what the new career mode might bring. The demo after the trailer teases more cars, tracks like GT originals Trial Mountain and real-life circuits like Daytona and Willow Springs, and a short length of gameplay footage that looks utterly amazing.

There is little doubt Gran Turismo 7 will be the most ambitious and sensational Gran Turismo to date. We've played our fair share of arcade racing games and racing simulators around the Super Street offices and we cannot wait to see what the next iteration of all these great games brings. Sony did not say exactly when we will be able to get our hands on either the Playstation 5 or Gran Turismo 7, but we're hoping it's safe to assume the company will sell both by the time the winter holidays come around.

The show must go on, as they say, and so that’s exactly what organizers of the much-loved annual Tokyo Auto Salon did, taking the 3-day event that usually happens in Chiba’s Makuhari Messe convention center and translating it (metaphorically, not literally; it was still largely in Japanese) into both streaming video and 3D. Auto Salon

Super Street: Anytime we talk about a vehicle prototype, the overwhelming response, once some of the initial smoke has cleared (and people are done cursing out the manufacturer and demanding that their design team be fired immediately), centers heavily on claims that the production car will look nothing like the demo car. In some cases,

You know the name Joel Tan (@jt_built) from his wildly popular SR20DET-swapped, ‘40s-era Willy’s Jeep that mingles among the top of Super Street’s most popular feature cars of all time, and we expect his 1972 Nissan Skyline GT-R and Toyota Trueno of the same birth year will also have a lasting impression. Both cars feature

The “most powerful 3-cylinder in the world,” applied to Toyota’s much talked about GR Yaris still sounds a little strange when you hear it, but you can’t deny the nasty 250+hp and over 260 lb-ft. of torque that are delivered through an eager AWD system, all packed into a relatively lightweight (by modern hatchback standards)

As if to pour a little salt into the wound that the hottest hatch in ages, the AWD Toyota GR Yaris, is not being brought to North America, the interwebs has begun to conspire against us by teasing us with modified versions from some of the biggest tuners in the biz. In December, those sneak
