If you can’t get enough of Gran Turismo 5 and have to buy the full happy-meal package, plan on shelling out $99 when the game is released on November 2. Jalopnik tells us that your hard earned money will buy you the GT5 game in a collector’s box, a keychain, a 1:43 scale model of a 2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V and a series of five downloadable cars not available to plain box GT5 buyers.
What additional cars do you get? How about a 427 Cobra, an Audi R8 5.2 FSI, a Mercedes 300SL, a BMW M3 coupe, and a Lamborghini LP640. All the bonus cars feature a high gloss, translucent paint job complete with a chrome GT5 logo. Joy.
There have been too many pushed back release dates for GT5 for me to actually believe it’ll hit stores on November 2. As for me, the plain box version will do just fine since I don’t need another key chain, car model or collector’s box. Even the add on cars leave me disappointed; out of all the cars ever created, these are the best five you could pick? How about a Lancia Stratos, or a Ford RS200 Evolution or an Audi Sport quattro S1? How about a Ford GT40 or a Porsche 917 or a Lola T70? Hell, I’d even be more amused by a Stanley Steamer than I would be with the 300SL or the Audi R8.
