Jay Leno Tests Out GT6: "It Does Feel Like The Real Car"
Jay Leno has an enviable, world famous car collection and is a confirmed gearhead.
That's why we like to hear his opinion when he sits down with a game like Gran Turismo 6. That's exactly what Leno did in the latest installment of JayLenosGarage. Check it out below; it's worth seeing.
Polyphony Digital took Leno's custom car, the 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado with over 1,000 horsepower, and put it into the game. Then they let him drive it, and he says it really does feel a lot like the real thing. The Toronado actually isn't the first of Leno's cars to be featured in a GT title; the first was his Tank Car, a massive dragster that actually used an engine from a Patton tank. As for the Toronado, it blends 21st Century chassis, suspension, and a twin turbo-charged engine from a Corvette.
Leno was also one of the first to drive the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision car (a totally sick vehicle), in reality and in the game. This guy has the life, doesn't he? Said GT creator Kazunori Yamauchi:
"We love Jay’s knowledge and enthusiasm for cars. It’s great having the Toronado in the game. I have driven it in the game and it’s a real challenge."
