Cool The real Gran Turismo car

Virtual is now a grand reality

Quote:
I’VE just turned virtual reality into motoring reality in the most bizarre drive of my life.

I took the frankly amazing GTbyCITROEN super car from the video screen to the streets of London to recreate its PlayStation fantasy journey.

This car looks amazing!
Too bad it drives worse than an Abrams Tank!

The tank would probably be more useful driving round the center of London!

I read the whole article & the guy that wrote it got to drive it around London.
Said it was more for show than go & drove terrible.
Very hard to steer & shift!

Yea you wouldn't have any trouble with parking & forget about problems with "Road Rage"...someone points a gun at you, you just blow them up with the cannon!
That brings to mind the time that guy got ahold of a tank from the National Guard & took it for a spin around town...ran over everything he could find! Kinda funny to watch, but not if you owned the car or RV he ran over...it was after all 100,000 lbs & made for that, just not around town...
They ended up killing him because he wouldn't stop.
