Does The World's Best Race Track Look Better In GT5 Or Real Life?

This video shows a complete run of the Nürburgring's Nordschleife course, widely rated as the best damn race track in the world. On the bottom screen, a real driver, in real life. On top? Gran Turismo 5.

The real driver is Denis Malevanyi, a part-time veteran of the course. He's driving the exact same car as is being driven in the GT5 video, a BMW M3 E92.

While it's easy to pick the differences between the two clips, like the colour range and misplaced background scenery in the video game, it's also worth noting the stuff Gran Turismo 5 gets right. Like, pretty much everything to do with the track itself.

Thanks MtlAngelus!


    it might look better... but nothing beats driving in RL

      True, but maybe you can fund me (My wifes carer and Pensioner) a trip to do it in real life. M3 and everything :P

        I'll take the Nissan GT-R. Cheers.

          It's Nurburgring, I'd take whatever they give me AMG or KE corolla, just get me their please!

      This is a moot point. Gran Turismo is a celebration of motorsport, giving you the most realistic driving experience in cars and on tracks you'll most likely never see.

      I can tell GT5 is the closest I'm getting to a Bugatti Veyron. It's a fantasy, I don't play GT5 to experience driving around in my crappy hatchback in-game.
