Top 10 Most Realistic Gran Turismo 5 Pictures

GRAN TURISMO 5 might  be a year and a half old now, but it’s visuals are still so impressive you might be fooled into thinking these pictures were real!

Gran Turismo is billed as “The Real Driving Simulator” but with graphics as impressive as these and the extensive Photomode, it’s more than about just driving.

In fact, over on the GTPlanet forums, there is a thread with over 600 pages dedicated to the most photorealistic images imaginable. We’ve sifted through them and picked what we think are the top 10.

10. Mazda 787B – Created by Aleman

Mazda’s screaming rotary powered Le Mans winner races around the 30km(!) Route X high speed oval at dusk.

9. RUF CTR “Yellowbird” – Created by Ariesps

The fearsome “Yellowbird” (although painted black here) was created by Porsche tuning company RUF. Especially impressive because this is one of GT5’s “standard” models.

8.Mazda RX7 & Nissan Skyline Touring Cars – Created by Fishyjuice

These touring cars were created, along with several others, especially for Gran Turismo 5 and they look great under the trees on the Tokyo city course.

7. Toyota GT86 – Created by Lyam

Toyota’s much anticipated GT86 sports car takes on Japan’s Tsukuba circuit. It’s the quality of the background that really sells this one.

6. Xanavi Nissan 350Z JGTC – Created by AdrianF1

The lighting and camera motion really gives this picture of Nissan’s 350Z, built for the Japanese Super GT Championship, a realistic feel.

5. RE Amemiya Mazda RX7 – Created by 20832

The RE Amemiya RX7 is usually seen going sideways but this shot of it emerging at speed from behind the armco looks amazing.

4. Audi R8 V10 – Created by Jamoru

This shot of the Audi R8 V10 at the legendary Nurburgring Nordschliefe looks so good it could be from Audi’s own press pack.

3. Autobacs ARTA Garaiya – Created by BlindArchangel

You might never have heard of this car, and you’d be forgiven for that, but it is superbly detailed and looks great with the sun breaking through the trees.

2. HKS CT230R Mitsubishi Evo – Created by Ariesps

This picture looks incredible, from the angle to the lighting and the shadows. Even the reflection in the chromed headlights. Epic.

1.Blitz ER34 Nissan Skyline – Created by NBDESIGNZ

Everything about this picture is just right, it really sets the standard for what is possible with Gran Turismo 5.
