Gran Turismo is an internationally popular and well-known series of racing video games. The wide appeal of the series is largely due to its accurate driving physics simulation, which continues to invoke a revolution in the field of racing games.

The latest title, Gran Turismo 6 (GT6), introduces aerodynamic analyses using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to more accurately simulate the aerodynamics of real vehicles. Software Cradle Co., Ltd, SC/Tetra CFD software, was used for the aerodynamic analyses which includes realistic body geometry and properly characterized aerodynamic components.
