    You barrel out of the fourth turn doing 240 or you test the wall. Either way it's heaven.

    Could there be anything more glorious than the afterlife? Consider a lineup of over 500 of the world's most prestigious driving machines. From unrepentant speed demons to the burliest of American muscle cars. Of course, you don't drive them as much as you try to contain them. Each one is engineered according to exact specifications. You can customize them to blistering levels of performance. Sound excessive? Not considering what you're up against. Twenty of the world's most unforgiving tracks. Along with an equally merciless Rally Racing Mode. Winning won't be easy. But then, accepting defeat could be far more difficult.

From www.us.playstation.com:
    Public opinion out there is ubiquitous: Gran Turismo 2 is the best racing game you can get for your PlayStation, period. Pick from over 500 Japanese, European and North American brand name autos, each accurately modeled to reflect its real-life counterpart. Not only can you tear through over 20 detailed tracks, you can also customize them with manufacturer and aftermarket parts purchased with your winnings. Visual details like reflective textures, tire smoke, and spinning hub caps helps to suspends one's disbelief. And sonically, Rob Zombie, Filter and Fear Factory lay down some of their crunchiest tunes over the roar of your combustible engine.
