This year's Tokyo Auto Salon 2010 with NAPAC, held Friday January 15 through Sunday January 17 at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba prefecture, is one of the largest car shows in the world with over 600 beautiful cars, 300 exhibitors, and exhibition runs by D1 Grand Prix drift racers. Gran Turismo is also making an appearance with its own dedicated booth.

Visitors to the Gran Turismo booth can take a guided tour, enjoy the latest videos for Gran Turismo 5 and a documentary about Gran Turismo Academy, and even try their driving skills on special demo stations featuring the Gran Turismo 5 Time Trial Challenge (available for download on PlayStation Network through January 25, 2010). Also in the booth is a real version of the Nissan Fairlady Z (370Z) that appears in the Time Trial Challenge.
