Gran Turismo 5 has been heralded as one of the greatest video games for car enthusiasts, but now there's word that the famous franchise has managed to slip in a camouflaged version of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette.

The car clearly resembles previous spy photos, so it remains unclear if this is an official tie-in or designers just having a little bit of fun. Regardless, we wouldn't be surprised if a production intent Corvette was eventually included in a future update.

As we have previously reported, the 2014 Corvette will debut at the North American International Auto Show. It will feature an evolutionary design which adopts angular surfaces and a four-tailpipe exhaust system. Power will be provided by a new 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine that produces approximately 450 bhp (336 kW) and 450 lb-ft (609 Nm) of torque. It should enable the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than four seconds and return 26+ mpg highway (US).
