Gran Turismo 5 getting free 2014 Corvette Stingray DLC on Jan. 15

Polyphony Digital's sim racing title Gran Turismo 5 will receive the recently-debuted 2014 Corvette Stingray as free downloadable content on Jan. 15, publisher Sony announced today on the PlayStation Blog.

The Stingray is the finalized version of the Corvette C7 Test Prototype released for the game last November, which has been test-driven by over 500,000 players, according to Sony associate product manager Ken Chan. The Stingray boasts 450 horsepower and is capable of going from zero to 60 in under four seconds. It is also being marketed as the most fuel-efficient Corvette to date. Its likeness in Gran Turismo 5 includes all details of the new design, both on the interior and exterior, as well as how it handles on the roads down to its 7-speed manual transmission.

While the car itself was first announced at the 2012 LA Auto Show this past November, Polyphony and automotive company Chevrolet collaborated for several months developing the car for use in Gran Turismo 5. The Corvette Stingray will have its world debut at the 2013 North American International Auto Show, which runs today through Jan. 27 in Detroit.

Gran Turismo 5 has been steadily receiving additional downloadable content since its initial release in November 2010. Players can grab the Stingray exclusively through the PlayStation Store tomorrow.
