If Gran Turismo 5 Signature Edition isn’t quite your style (or in your price range), you can always look out for the Collector’s Edition, which is also suitably spiffy. This version of Grant Turismo 5 will go for €79.99, and contains a special #5 slip case, as well as the following items:

  • 200 page Apex drivers magazine with hints on driving technique, car tuning, future technologies and more
  • Five ‘ChromeLine’ Collector’s Edition cars plus
  • Six ‘Stealth’ vehicles
  • Exclusive dynamic PS3 theme
  • Five collectible artcards featuring handpicked rendered images

If all of that isn’t to taste (or to budget), you can also pre-order Gran Turismo 5 to get the six special ‘Stealth’ vehicles, all of which feature “performance and livery enhancements to give you that little extra edge in-game.”

Here they are:
