- GraphicsAchieving 4K*, 60FPS, HDR**, with Wide Colour Process
- Compatible with the best imaging technologies available today, providing 4K, 60fps, HDR and Wide Color. Not only has the output been made to support HDR TV signal formats, a True HDR workflow was specially established in order to maintain true HDR and wide color processing from the initial material capturing processes to the final output. The development actually started with the development of an HDR wide color capture device in cooperation with the Sony Corporation.
As a result, not only is the output compatible with HDR TV’s, the images produced achieves a level of realism never seen before, even when viewed on a conventional TV.
*A PlayStation®4 Pro and a 4K compatible TV is required to enjoy 4K images.
**An HDR compatible TV is required to enjoy HDR.

- CarsFrom stock cars, race cars to concept cars, a total of over 150 cars have been recreated for the game.
- Excluding the CAD data used by automobile makers for their manufacturing, the 3D models created for the game are the highest quality, highest precision models in the world. From the curves of the body, edges, spacing between body panels to the headlights and turn signals, every detail of the car has been precisely recreated.
- TracksFrom high speed ovals to an urban expressway, 18 locations are provided with 54 different layouts.

- Physics SimulatorThe best automotive simulation in GT series history, balancing both realism and ease of driving
- In parallel to the development of its vehicle physics simulation, Gran Turismo has performed technical support for cars racing in the real life Nürburgring 24 hour race as well as the LMP1 class of the Le Mans 24 hour race.
Gran Turismo Sport is equipped with the latest vehicle physics simulation that includes knowledge gained from both the real and the virtual. A physics simulation that is ‘easy to drive because it is realistic’ has been achieved.
