Gran Turismo 5 cover art is announced/revealed

Sony’s PlayStation Blog dropped a fun one today by announcing the cover art for what’s hoped to be the ultimate racing experience short of hopping in a really expensive car to race it: Gran Turismo 5. The post mainly boasts not the stylish presentation of the artwork itself, but the car used for it like Madden games advertising who will grace the cover of each year’s rendition. The GT5 cover will proudly portray the Mercedes Benz SLS AMG, which is apparently “the car of 2010.” Should you be in the market for a new car, the post will provide you with pretty detailed specs that are likely really impressive. If you’re looking for details on the actual game, a simple “stay tuned” is all for now. Keep an eye out for this slick cover art and the game disc inside sometime this year, or in March if you live in Japan.
