The demo will be taken down at 2pm BST / 3pm CEST on October 12, so get it while you can.

All in-game progress in the Gran Turismo Sport demo will carry over to the full game upon release, and all earned in-game credit (up to $1MM) and personalized garage vehicles will be transferable.

The demo will offer up Sport, Campaign and Arcade modes. New features such as the innovative Scapes Photography mode and Custom Livery Editor are also available for the very first time.

For completing each trial, you'll get multiple rewards such as in-game currency, experience points, and even new vehicles.
