If you grew up in Australia in the late 90s, you'll know that the original GranTurismo on the original Sony Play Station was the first that most of us saw of the plethora of Japanese sports cars that would flood the country over the next ten or so years. It was the first time that things like the Nissan GT-R, Mitsubishi 3000GT and Toyota Celica GT-FOUR really became known. Sure, we all remember the R32 dominating Bathurst in 1991 and 92, and the Celica was winning rounds of the World Rally Championship, but these were still outside what the mainstream would have seen. 

Anyway, check this out. This is Japanese magazine Best Motoring's 1996 shootout. And it looks a lot like GranTurismo but in live action...
