Nissan's GT-R LM Nismo Racer for Le Mans Can be Driven in GT 6

Petrolheads with a gaming addiction can now experience the audacious Nissan GT-R LM Nismo prototype on the racetrack, but there's a catch. The action will take place in Pixel Land, as the LMP1 prototype is available to drive in Gran Turismo 6.

It's a good thing that Gran Turismo 6 spawned so many Gran Turismo Vision prototypes from renown carmakers, but how about those gearheads who like their auto simulators filled with motorsport flavor?

Where there's a will, there's a way some like to say, and it goes the same for video games. And you'll need some strong will and genuine virtual driving skills before having the GT-R LM Nismo.

First, gamers must complete three rounds of the GT Academy 2015 and qualify for the Final Qualification session, which is Round 4. Then, after just completing a full lap (without the pressure of lap timing), they can have the Nissan GT-R LM Nismo for free.

For those not too keen on driving the LMP1 prototype, here's something to persuade you towards doing so. First of all, the Le Mans racer will use a front-wheel drive system in real life, which will be emulated by the game as well. Secondly, the front-engine layout is also interesting in terms of dynamic behaviour, and thirdly, the aerodynamics work in such a way that the front axle receives 65 percent of the total downforce generated by the GT-R LM Nismo.

Sure, game world and aerodynamics don't usually work, but in real racing conditions, such details can mean the difference between success and failure.
