New BMW M4, Ford Mustang get their first drive in Gran Turismo and Need for Speed

One great thing about racing games is that they give you a way to drive new and fancy cars anytime without having to sell a limb or two. The recently released Gran Turismo 6 and EA's Need for Speed: Rivals, for instance, now puts you in the driver's seats of the pricey 2014 BMW M4 Coupé and the 2015 Ford Mustang muscle car, respectively. While both rides aren't slated for release until 2014, the games' developers worked closely with the automakers to make the digital counterparts as detailed as possible. Both developers enjoyed early access to the cars prior to their unveiling, with EA taking the step of recording the new Mustang GT's V-8 engine for its game. As a huge plus, they're available as free digital downloads, so you don't need to tap into those emergency holiday funds just to take these for a virtual test drive long before they pop up at local dealerships.
