WATCH: The History of Gran Turismo

Gran Turismo is a 24-year-old racing game institution that has sold well over 80 million copies and seen eight primary releases and a suite of spin-off titles. There’s even a street in Spain named after the lead producer Kazunori Yamauchi.

From the original Gran Turismo on the first PlayStation – the best-selling game on the platform – to 2017’s GT Sport, this is a rundown of the good, the bad and the ugly in Gran Turismo folklore. Glorified tech demos, Epson printers and kei cars – it’s all in here.

With Gran Turismo 7 set to release on PS5 in 2022 and promising a return to former glories, join Rich Hutson as he takes you on a voyage through Polyphony Digital’s opus to the motor vehicle.
