Watch Top Gear through GT5

Jeremy Clarkson and chums to be broadcast via GT TV

A deal between Polyphony Digital and the BBC means you'll be able to watch episodes of British car programme Top Gear via GT TV, the video download feature in Gran Turismo 5.

You'll be able to see Clarkson racing super cars and trashing camper vans in 40 episodes of the series that will be made available through the final Gran Turismo 5 game out late next year (not the Prologue version).

As part of the same deal, Gran Turismo 5 will also feature the Top Gear Test Track, which appears in each episode of the programme.

Polyphony Digital president, Kazunori Yamauchi, said: "We at Polyphony are great fans of the world's best motoring programme, Top Gear, so we're delighted to be collaborating with BBC Worldwide to deliver Top Gear content via Gran Turismo."


The game's already looking pretty sweet, as you can see in our comparison videos between the GT HD demo and the more recent and all-round sexier GT5 Prologue demo.
