GT HD confirmed cars and a clip

Not only has Sony unleashed a lovely new clip of its Japanese Gran Turismo HD demo - you can see it via the movie tab above - but it has also revealed the date of when we can expect to hear more from Gran Turismo 5.

As you'll know by now, GT HD is the one-track, ten-cars, free demo due to be released on Christmas Eve in Japan - and, Sony announced today, in North America as well.  The demo will be available for free download exclusively on the Playstation Store for the PS3. And Sony has released the full list of cars that can be unlocked in the game - that is, once you beat the previously set lap times on the all-new Eiger Nordwand track, first in the Cappuccino and then in every car after that.

And while online play won't be part of the package, networked races will be available, as will the ability to download replays of other players' fastest laps.

Above: It's only one track and you can drive it forward or backwards, but it sure looks pretty

So here's the car list in full:

• Suzuki Cappuccino '95
• Mazda Eunos Roadster '89
• Honda Integra Type R'04
• Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV GSR'96
• Infinity G35 Coupe
• Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX GSR'05
• Lotus Elise 111R'04
• Nissan Sky Liner GT-R V Spec II '94
• Toyota Celica GT-FOUR Rally Car '95
• Ferrari 599'06

Sadly, that looks like all we will see of the series for some time, because series producer Kazunori Yamauchi has revealed that the next time GT5 will appear again in public is at the Tokyo Motor Show on Oct. 27, 2007 - which, if you're counting them off, is only 300 days away from today. Yay!
