The Real Driving Simulator!

Since its release in 1997, the Gran Turismo series of racing games has proved one of the most popular franchises on the PlayStation. As these consoles have improved with technology, so has Gran Turismo to the point that the latest release, Gran Turismo Sport on the PlayStation 4, is almost photo-realistic. 

Here, you are giving a massive selection of tracks to race around, both real-life and fictional. It even includes Circuit de Sarthe, home of the legendary Le Mans 24-hour endurance race as well as the 20.8 kilometer Nurburgring, possibly the most famous racetrack in the world. 

Now tracks are sure to impress racing enthusiasts, but something else gets their motors revving even more - cars! As a car lover, I am sure you agree, the chance to race virtual versions of vehicles you will never see in person (in most cases), let alone drive, is something that draws us toward racing games like the Gran Turismo series.

And Gran Turismo has them all. Ferrari, McLaren, Aston Martin and many other supercar companies have given the all-clear for their vehicles to appear in the series, along with everyday cars we see as we sit in traffic. This is what makes Gran Turismo unique. 

The question is, could you identify the cars that appear in Gran Turismo from a single image? 

Let's see how you fare!
