Polyphony Digital scans one-off Ferrari P4/5 for use in future Gran Turismo title

James Allen On March 11, 2013

An Italian engineering firm has revealed Polyphony Digital is at least in the process of scanning one of the high-end cars it maintains for future use in the Gran Turismo series.

The Turin-based company L.m Gianetti recently posted photos onto its Facebook page, clearly showing PD employees taking extensive images of the exterior and interiors of at least some of the cars it stores.

A majority of the images showcase the PD team analysing the Ferrari P4/5 Competizione, a one-off racing car that was created by Pininfarina (on the request of former movie director and Ferrari officianado Jim Glickenhaus), based upon Ferrari 430 Scuderia running gear and engineered to GT2 racing legislation.

Two uploaded photos also showed Polyphony employees photographing the Martini-livered Lancia Delta HF Delta Integrale rally car and the Alfa Romeo 155 TI touring car, the latter being something avid GT gamers should be familar with, having been .

Whilst it's always not ideal to jump to conclusions and generate assumptions, especially with a GT game, the fact Polyphony has been caught snapping the Alfa in the same time and place it was photographing the ins and outs of the P4/5, there is the slight chance the 155 GTA will be given the 'premium makeover' it was denined in Gran Turismo 5

At the very earliest, though, it's highly unlikely we'll be seeing the end result of this car scanning in GT5 anytime soon - given L.m Gianetti, when translated into English, labelled the album "Scanning for Gran Turismo PS4", it's almost certain the earliest we'll see the finished car models in GT6.
