As part of the launch campaign for motor racing game "Gran Turismo 6," its opening movie has been released and features a look behind the scenes of automotive development.
A piano-led orchestral piece accompanies a selection of scenes that together tell the story of car design, prototyping and manufacturing.
That makes way for a montage of sleek, roaring motors and throbbing kickdrums to mark the PlayStation 3 game's December 6 worldwide debut.
It arrives 3 years after "Gran Turismo 5," a relatively short production cycle considering its studio's typical ambitious scope.
The game is now considered to have laid the foundation for a "Gran Turismo 7" in late 2014 or early 2015 on the far more powerful PlayStation 4.
