Gran Turismo 5 is the fifth part of the Gran Turismo series.
The games of the series are known for a detailed imitation of driving real cars. Each machine in the game is controlled and even sounds like its real prototype.
In addition to the characteristics of each model of the car, tuning is possible in the game. Tuning, as well as the acquisition of more and more powerful cars, becomes available as a result of victories in races, obtaining prize money and improving the skill of the driver. The upgrades acquired in the tuning process are as realistic as the basic qualities of the car.
Many of the car systems that can be tuned in real life can be customized in the game - and the consequences for the behavior of the car in the game will also be shown very realistically. For example, suspension settings affect handling.
The main mode of the game is arcade. But there is also a simulation mode that conducts the player through a series of races, constantly complicating the conditions and giving the player a chance to smoothly master the game, increase skill, earn game money for increasing the number of cars and other needs.
In Gran Turismo 5 there are 1031 cars, 26 locations and 71 variations of tracks. In addition, for the first time the editor of the tracks appeared in the game.
