Mastermind of a virtual reality.
In the past, when he was still at school, he used to recognise the cars on the roads from afar. Brands, models – he could allocate every little detail. And today it is no different. Kazunori Yamauchi is crazy about cars. What’s more: he’s a perfectionist. But above all, he is the mastermind behind the “Gran Turismo®” series.
That racing simulation that is one of the most successful console games in the world. That is entirely the achievement of this modest Japanese man. With his love of detail and his uncompromising will, he has created an almost perfect reality which captivates millions of enthusiastic players.
