Nissan's popularity expands to the digital driving world

June 7th, 2014 by

If you are fan of video games, then there’s no doubt that you know about Gran Turismo. It’s basically THE video game to have for driving enthusiasts – and there’s plenty for the average gamer to love as well. The real-life driving dynamics offered from the game are top-notch. The game has even been considered a good trainer for those just learning about driving. Nothing replaces the real thing, of course, but Gran Turismo in its many versions through the years comes pretty close to the real thing. So why are we bringing this up on a Nissan dealership blog? Well, it just so happens that Nissan is the most popular brand of vehicle even in the Gran Turismo games.

How many Nissan cars are in Gran Turismo?

To be exact, there have been 148 different Nissan vehicles appearing in the Gran Turismo games. While having the most cars in a video game doesn’t mean anything in particular, it does speak to the performance level of the Nissan lineup. People like to drive performance cars – whether it is in real life or video games. So the large amount of Nissan representatives in Gran Turismo seems to imply that the brand is considered one of the best for car enthusiasts. Given the choice in a game, are you going to choose the Nissan GT-R or a Ford Pinto? Yeah, that’s what we thought.

While this trip into the video game world is interesting, back in the real world we have some impressive vehicles for you to check out right here at Nissan of Auburn. We have several Nissan 370Zs in stock and we have been known to see a GT-R in our area from time to time as well.

So if you want to be in with the cool crowd – or just want a quality vehicle – you are probably going to want to go with the Nissan brand. Just look at Gran Turismo – it’s kind of a virtual Nissan test drive!
