Gran Turismo 6 Walkthrough
The next stage in the evolution of the world’s most popular and comprehensive racing simulator is upon us. Gran Turismo 6, the latest installment in the highest-selling series, will reach stores this Holiday season. Known for blurring the lines between virtual and reality, the Gran Turismo series has revolutionized the racing genre in the last 15 years, allowing fans to drive the most prolific collection of cars on the world’s most legendary racetracks. Gran Turismo 6 takes the real driving simulator experience to a whole new level.
A full list of new features included in Gran Turismo 6 was outlined by Gran Turismo creator, and President of Polyphony Digital Inc., Kazunori Yamauchi.
To quote: “It’s incredible to see what we have accomplished in the last 15 years, but we’re not done innovating yet,” said Kazunori Yamauchi. “Gran Turismo began with an idea that we could carve a new type of racing game that pushes the boundaries of realism while inspiring the devotion of car enthusiasts around the world. To see how the franchise has evolved since then into a true automotive brand fuels Polyphony to continue defining and transforming the genre with games like Gran Turismo 6.”
Gran Turismo 6 delivers the most complete and expansive racing game on any console. Highlights of the new game revealed by Yamauchi-san include:

- GT Academy: 5 years of success:
First developed in 2008 as an unprecedented collaboration with Nissan to unearth real racing talent from Gran Turismo gamers and turn them into professional racers, GT Academy has spawned a slew of successful champions. On hand to help celebrate the launch of Gran Turismo 6 were the first ever Champion, Spain’s Lucas Ordoñez, 2012 European winner Wolfgang Reip and the latest European recruit, Miguel Faisca from Portugal. As if to highlight the success of the programme, Ordoñez flew in from an important overseas test for Nissan, Reip from competing in the final round of the World Endurance Championship, while single-seater racer Jann Mardenborough, champion in 2011, was unavailable due to team commitments.
- BMW M4 Coupé to come to life in Gran Turismo 6:
Present at Ronda and Ascari Race Resort for the launch of Gran Turismo 6 was a camouflaged version of the yet-to-be-launched BMW M4 Coupé. The stunning new car – shown publicly only as a concept until now – will go on sale in 2014. Thanks to an innovative collaboration with BMW “M” GmbH, Polyphony Digital enjoyed unprecedented early access to the car during its development phase in order to meticulously recreate the M4 Coupé for Gran Turismo 6. It will be made available through a free update shortly after the release of GT6, allowing car enthusiasts around the world to drive it before it arrives in BMW showrooms. More news on the unveiling is expected soon!

How To Unlock: Special Events are carefully crafted challenges that require drivers to do more than simply winning races. Each event progresses in a different way. Please follow the instructions for each event.
The Special Events that are available depend on the progress you have made in Career Mode. And just like in Career Mode, the aim is to achieve total mastery of each event!
How To Start: From the Gran Turismo 6 in-game “My Home” main menu move left until you reach the “Special Events” (written side-ways) section. As mentioned above, if you only see the “Goodwood Festival of Speed” event, you’ll first need to make more Career Mode progress. Then go back to that menu to find the second event unlocked, the “Lunar Exploration” and start it.
Take control of LRV (Lunar Roving Vehicle AKA Moon Buggy) in this special event.
At the Dealerships, you can search for cars by manufacturer before purchasing them. After you select the Dealerships option, the available Dealerships will be divided into three broad categories: North America, Asia-Pacific and Europe. Use the directional buttons or the L1 button and the R1 button to select a Dealership. Select “Manufacturer List” in the top-left of the screen to directly find a specific manufacturer.
Once you’ve selected a Dealership, the cars they have available will be displayed. Use the sort criteria in the top-left to change the order in which these cars are displayed.
Recommended Cars are sub-divided as follows:
• Class: Cars that are suitable for each career mode class.
• Racing Category: Cars that can take part in each different racing category.
• Current: Cars that have attracted a high level of attention in events that are currently taking place. The line-up changes irregularly.
• Supercars: Cars that can take part in supercar races.
• Classics: Cars that can take part in classic car races.
Here are all 1200 cars in Gran Turismo 6. It’s the Dealerships full catalogue in one video.
