The Crew may have been postponed a few months but Ubisoft are still spitting out some trailers for the game.

Today we get some interesting details on the PC side of things with some specs being released as well as a trailer entitled "Nvidia Trailer."

NVIDIA and Ubisoft have teamed up to bring a range of visual enhancements to the PC version of the game using NVIDIA's GAMEWORKS technology, which will obviously be available to those running NVIDIA graphics cards.

Together with NVIDIA, we have been working to incorporate GAMEWORKS technologies to add exclusive visual enhancements for the PC version of the game.

Along with the trailer, the PC specs for the game are as follows, noting that the game will be exclusively for 64bit operating systems:

We played the PC beta of the The Crew a few months back and weren't impressed, and funnily enough, the main element, crews, didn't even work for us. We will have to reserve judgement for the final release though.
