At this year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Polyphony Digital Inc. and Toyota officially revealed the Toyota FT-1 Concept coupe.

Owners of Gran Turismo 6 will be the first to test-drive the FT-1 after a free online update that will be made available tomorrow, 14th January. After downloading the update, a unique seasonal event featuring the Toyota FT-1 will be made available in the game. If you receive a bronze or better in the FT-1 challenge at Laguna Seca, you will receive the car. Drivers will also be able to purchase the vehicle from the Toyota dealership without having to complete the seasonal event.

Calty Design Research has worked with Toyota over the last 40 years, concepting some of the manufacturer’s most cutting-edge vehicles, including the FT-1. As part of the design process, Calty approached Polyphony and asked the prestigious video game studio to recreate the concept digitally as part of the design studio’s pitch to Toyota executives. Watching the concept car in the Gran Turismo game engine helped Toyota make the decision to build the concept model.

“Thanks to the amazing capability of the Gran Turismo game engine, gamers can enjoy a very real simulation piloting the ultra-high performance FT-1 on the tracks it was designed to master,” said Kevin Hunter, President of Calty Design Research.

Be among the first to drive the future of Toyota design tomorrow!

Isto não é um update, é uma tentativa de morte à PS3, cada vez que aceito actualizar a consola desliga-se e depois tenho que restaurar o sistema. 3 vezes seguidas até que desisti.

Everytime i try do update, the sistem goes off and and then have to rebuild the sistem. Killing update… 3 times in row.

tried to download the update twice and on both occasions it failed causing my console to shutdown.can you explain why please?

When the “Update Notice” comes on screen, press “Cancel” (Circle-button). Then it might ask you to “Log in”, “Cancel” that also. Now the game should load in offline-mode. Now go to “Notifications” and the game should ask you to “Log in” again, now accept it (X-button). Then it should ask you to donwload the update and it should work ok! 🙂
I had the same problem and was able to update the game with that trick.
