Sony confirms feature film development, new cars and Brands Hatch!

Sony has announced that PS3 racer Gran Turismo 6 will launch worldwide on 6th December this year.

At Sony's Gamescom presentation in Cologne, Germany, European PlayStation boss also confirmed the word from Hollywood that Sony Pictures and GT creator Kazunori Yamauchi are working together on a Gran Turismo feature film.

A new trailer was shown featuring a range of far-out concept cars designed exclusively for GT6 by manufacturers like Mercedes, Alfa Romeo, Peugeot, Renault Alpine and Aston Martin as well as famed coachbuilders Bertone and Zagato and, weirdly, Nike.

Also spotted in the trailer was a moutwatering range of classic cars and some modern motorsport machinery, including the all-conquering Audi R18 e-tron Le Mans racer.

The unmistakeable bends of Brands Hatch were also to be seen, confirming that the classic Kent race track will be joining Silverstone in Gran Turismo for the first time.

When Martin Robinson has cleaned himself up a bit, he'll be reporting from Cologne with more on Gran Turismo 6.
