Gran Turismo 7 – What are the differences from Virtual to Reality

A real-life pro race car driver and experienced GT fan share their driving strategies.

Have you ever wondered what kind of driving similarities can be discovered from driving on the same circuit in Gran Turismo 7 (virtual) compared to real-life (reality)?

With just over a week away from the launch of Gran Turismo 7, we thought it would be fun and interesting to have two racing experts to help us answer that question – one from virtual, the other from reality.

Utilizing Willow Springs International Raceway as our testing ground, the super-fast 2.5 mile, nine-turn road racing circuit has been home to some of the most classic Gran Turismo battles, including the FIA GT Championships 2021.

Professional race car driver, Dai Yoshihara, pilots a race-prepped Evasive Motorsports’ Tesla Model 3 Performance vehicle provides his real-life pointers on how to be tackle the one of the fastest and most challenging tracks in the U.S, including the ideal vehicle modification, racing lines, and small nuisances that only an experienced driver would know.

In parallel, a longtime fan of Gran Turismo, Steve Brown aka Super GT takes a modified Tesla Model S and gives his detailed insights from a virtual perspective through his in-game experiences with Gran Turismo 7.

Watch our two part Virtual to Reality video series where these experts provide their insights on the differences in GT7 and real life. Be sure to not miss the Side-by-Side comparison video of a flying lap in Gran Turismo 7 and in real life through the cockpit of a Tesla vehicle.

  • Hello viewers!

  • who else is looking for the secret codes in these posts? 😂

  • So far, I think this is the best game coming to ps. It has replayability, looks good, and isn’t less than 15 hours to some sort of ending.
    Just brutally bummed it’s $70. I can’t let myself pay that price, so I’ll be stalking eBay.

  • Game look really great! Congrats to the whole team.
    Too bad is it only a 2012 Tesla S featured. This car is not made for track, will overeat after a couple of laps. The new model and 3 and newer model s 2022 Plaid are tho. Would have been great to include those instead, or at least feature them in the video if they are available in the game.
    Also, oil change on a Tesla? :D

  • I love it, I am playing of PS4 Pro(obvious reasons)

    Haven’t seen the graphics on it yet, It will do if it is as good as Gran Turismo Sport.

  • Hoping this is good haven’t played gran turismo since 4. I bought the 25th edition hopefully it was a well made decision.

  • I’ve been waiting for the day we can finally drive a Tesla in a racing-sim game. It might be the only way I can afford to drive a Model S Plaid.

  • Opened this hoping to read about PSVR2 support in GT7. Disappointed 😥. Maybe next time…

  • Ken, please find a decent editor. Reading this article was a trial.

  • oh, clickbaity article! First I thought they’ll reveal the PSVR2 support :)

  • I love how they’re talking about the realism of the game then show the ability to get an oil change on a Tesla LOL

  • I moved and couldn’t bring my TV for space reasons. Would literally buy this immediately if the PS supported 1440p displays but my PS5 is collecting dust right now cause of this
    Hurry tf up Sony. It can’t be that hard literally every device in the entire world that supports 4k can do this

  • The difference is one doesn’t require online only for it to work…

  • Static dead trees, It’s a GT game alright. For 20 years wind effects in games have moved trees yet Polyphonic still make the world look frozen in time. Stormy weather? frozen trees. Windy with flags blowing? Frozen trees…

  • Is this for PS4

  • Looks amazing!!!….just have to say. We gamers want tracks that show signs of actual racing. The tarmac doesn’t need to be so damn pristine…lacking the sign of lock ups…braking bump undulating the tarmac. In this clip… its too sterile. Its just takes away from the grit of motorsport and immersion.

  • I hope they can find a way to include the Lexus LFA in the game.

  • I appeal to the leaders of PlayStation

    On February 24, the Russian federation attacked Ukraine.
    Civilian are suffering. Army of Russian federation destroys civilian objects, kills civilians.

    The propaganda of the aggressor state turned out to be so strong that ordinary people in Russia still do not believe or refuse to believe what is happening.

    Those Russians who are currently playing must feel the changes caused by direct aggression against Ukraine.

    Therefore, I urge you to limit the access of Russian players to all online PlayStation services during the war against Ukraine

  • paynefulljimmy69

    I agree with Gouranga28 🤔🎯💯 Couldn’t have said it better myself.

  • I just thought of something. Them tracks are too clean we need some rubber marks on em just like real life :)

  • Another thing. Stop adding fake 2d ppl in places they arent on the real tracks. Its a distraction and waste of memory/buffer allocation. Thank you :)
