E3 10: Gran Turismo 5 Collector's Edition unveiled

9:15 PM on 06.15.2010 // Samit Sarkar

At Sony's press conference, we finally got a release date for Gran Turismo 5: November 2, 2010, in North America and Latin America. Now we've got the announcement of a Collector's Edition for the game, and it's looking pretty sweet.

The whole package, which will retail for $99.99, includes the following:

  • A copy of Gran Turismo 5
  • Exclusive limited edition 1:43 scale diecast 2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V with custom Gran Turismo livery designed by Polyphony Digital, produced by well-known collectible car maker Kyosho
  • In-depth 300-page car-lover’s guide written by the experts at Polyphony Digital, covering everything from the history of the modern automobile to driving techniques and game reference material
  • Custom etched Gran Turismo key chain
  • Voucher for five exclusive high-end DLC cars with custom Gran Turismo livery and performance upgrades
  • Numbered certificate of authenticity
  • Custom collector’s packaging

Yep, they'll all include a numbered certificate, because quantities of this Collector's Edition will actually be limited. You'll be able to pre-order it soon at a variety of retailers; pre-ordering (the Collector's Edition or the game itself) will net you one of a number of exclusive in-game cars, such as the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and McLaren F1.

Check out the gallery for a larger image of the contents of the Collector's Edition, as well as a close-up of the GT-R Spec V. How many of you are going to pick up the Collector's Edition?
