If you’re intent on purchasing the sixth instalment in Kazunori Yamauchi’s Gran Turismo series, you might want to place a pre-order, as there are some seriously tasty treats available to those who do.
Writing on the US PlayStation Blog, SCEA Product Manager Ken Chan has revealed a number of incentive schemes supported by participating retailers that should succeed in getting GT fans to front-up their funds. For starters, a pre-order from most reputable vendors will earn you four bonus motors: the BMW Z4 GT3 ’11, the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 ’13, the Tesla Model S Signature Performance ’13, and the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (C7) ’14.
Put in a pre-order at GameStop specifically, however, and you’ll get these plus a 15th Anniversary Edition upgrade that adds a further 16 turbo-charged chariots to the racer’s catalogue. They are:
- Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale 2011

“Cars shmars”, you say? Well, Amazon.com is offering a whopping $1 million in-game credits to whomever pre-orders online, allowing players to build their dream car collection from the moment their career begins. They will also get the keys to the four vehicles pictured above in addition.
