One day after announcement

I'm a Japanese car guy, but there's no denying that the newly revealed 2014 Corvette is a badass lookin' vehicle. It was just revealed at the Detroit Auto Show last night, and today we've received news that it will come to Gran Turismo 5 first in virtual form.

Chevrolet and Polyphony Digital have been working in the background  to create an authentic driving experience for this new addition to the GT garage. Only one day after its debut, GT5 owners will be able to test out this beast of a car (450 horsepower, 0-60 in less than 4 seconds) for themselves. The Corvette Stingray will be available as a free download through PSN on Tuesday, Jan. 15. 

As for the real deal, the 2014 Corvette Stingray coupe goes on sale in the third quarter of 2013.

Check out of gallery for in-game images of the new Corvette and one bonus IRL image.
