When GT Sport was released late last year, it had been four years since a Gran Turismo game had been released on PlayStation. As the first current-gen GT game, it offers a higher resolution than ever before and even comes with VR support for the very first time, giving gamers the chance to race across 40 courses in 17 locations.
Going from strength to strength since its launch, with a variety of free upgrades made available including a range of new cars and the GT League single-player, you get to drive your dream car on your PS4 first. But here are five cars from GT Sport that you can lease when you’re done with the game.
While Nissan might not have the badge value of some manufacturers, the GT-R has the distinction of being one of the fastest accelerating production cars in the world. Outperforming every other car on this list, the Nissan GT-R offers insane velocity, sublime handling and is available at a pretty reasonable price all things considered. With 0-62 achieved in 2.7 seconds and one of the most powerful sounding engines you’ll likely experience, it’s not really up for debate that the GT-R is Nissan’s proudest moment.
With its strong road presence on top of sports car looks, the moment you turn the key in the ignition of the F-Type you’re in for a treat. Offering 543bhp and 680Nm of torque, thrilling performance and outstanding handling, the car is relatively practical as well thanks to its selectable drive modes.
Honda Civic Type R
As one of the meanest looking fast affordable cars in recent memory, the Honda Civic Type R is a car that you will never get bored of driving. With 25 years of racing-inspired engineering behind every aspect of the vehicle, the 2017 Honda Civic Type-R has the distinction of holding the lap record at the Nurburgring. It’s longer, lower and wider than any previous model and is a real head turner.
When you think of sports cars, Lotus is one of the manufacturers who immediately spring to mind. The Exige is relentless, offering a fast and enjoyable ride for anyone crazy enough to get behind the wheel. With a 3.5 litre V6 engine roaring the second you touch the accelerator, and with a top speed of 120mph, the car sounds exactly what you want a ludicrous supercar to sound like. Needless to say, this is definitely an enthusiast’s car. It grips the road, changes direction electronically and handles like a true race car.
With a refreshed model due this year, we still get excited about the fact a 5.0 V8 Mustang is available to drive in the UK. As American as mom’s apple pie, the V8 Mustang is the type of vehicle that turns heads the moment people hear the aggressive note of the engine. It’s big, it’s brash, it’s bold and it’s also the most iconic car on this list.
