As you can see, Sony has released the official boxart to one of 2010's most anticipated games, Gran Turismo 5. Along with the game's cover, Sony has also released a new trailer showcasing the next "real driving simulator."
As a game that will feature over 1,000 cars, Polyphony Digital had their work cut out for them when choosing the cover car for GT5. In the end, they settled on the 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, which the EU PlayStation.Blog assures us will be the car of 2010:
"" A spiritual successor to the 1954 300SL Gullwing, the SLS is every bit as astounding a piece of automotive engineering as the original 300SL was in its heyday. The statistics are no less impressive either; the power behind those graceful looks is delivered by a 6.2litre V8 which propels the supercar from 0-60 in just 3.8 seconds and on to a top speed close to 200mph. ""
In addition to the official boxart reveal, Joystiq has a brand new trailer of the game for your viewing pleasure:
Gran Turismo 5 currently has no official release date, but Sony executives have hinted it will be released for the PlayStation 3 this Summer.
