GamerHub.tv recently released a video featuring an interview with video game U.S. Gran Turismo producer Taku Imasaki recorded after the GT6 reveal last month. Imasaki gave some insight into what to expect when the game hits shelves this holiday season.
Perhaps the most exciting tidbit of information that Imasaki shared is that gamers can expect to see the most recent SEMA Gran Turismo Award-winning cars in the game including the 2010 GT Award winner Mark Stielow’s ’69 Chevrolet Camaro and 2011 GT Award winner Mary Pozzi’s ’71 Chevrolet Camaro.
Each year, at the Specialty Equipment Marketing Association show in Las Vegas, the Gran Turismo Awards offer exhibitors the opportunity to add their ride to the famed Gran Turismo racing franchise with a feature spot in a future Gran Turismo title.
Mark Stielow’s 2010 winner is a ’69 Camaro equipped with a supercharged 427ci engine and a unique combination of LS7 and LS9 architecture, which allows the car to run 10.90 e.t.'s at the strip. The “Red Devil” tears up road courses and autocrosses at Pro Touring events across the country while maintaining a happy 650rpm idle and keeping Mark comfortable with cushiony seats and air conditioning.
Mary Pozzi’s 2011 winner is a ’71 Camaro powered by a 402 LS2 stroker motor and equipped with a T56 Magnum. And while this clean Camaro has all the makings of a show car, Hotchkis Suspension parts all around make it an accomplished autocross and Pro Touring competitor as well.
The highly customized Camaros are expected to join previous winners featured in Gran Turismo 5, including Art Morrison’s 1960 Corvette.
