Sony has announced the Gran Turismo 5 Academy Edition, due out this autumn to coincide with the fourth year of the collaboration between the GT Academy and Nissan.

It's the original game with DLC already released for the PlayStation 3 exclusive racer and a new car:

  • Complete Pack (Car Pack, Course Pack, Special Paint Pack, Racing Gear Pack).
  • Car Pack 2.
  • Car Pack 3 and Course Pack 2.
  • The Nissan GTR driven in this year's Nurburgring 24 hour race by series creator Kazunori Yamauchi. .

The GT5 Academy Edition launches on 26th September 2012 and costs £19.99 / €29.99.

Gran Turismo chief Kazunori Yamauchi said: "GT Academy has captured the imagination of many Gran Turismo fans. It is exciting to watch what Lucas Ordóñez, Jordan Tresson, Jann Mardenborough and Bryan Heitkotter in the USA, are achieving in their new racing careers with Nissan.

"People can now see that it is possible to make the switch from being a fast gamer to become a real racing driver. We wanted to mark the tremendous success of GT Academy with the very latest version of GT5."
