At its launch, Gran Turismo was an excellent game, with excellent driving dynamics, but had little cars and tracks to choose from, without even an offline mode to play with. As time went by, the PS4 game kept getting better, adding more content and cars throughout its life. In its latest 1.13 update, Polyphony Digital has thrown in 12 new cars, two new track layouts, and more single player events.
The most interesting of all the cars is the addition of the Alpine A110, both in its 1972 1600S model and the revived 2018 model. This Porsche Cayman-rivalling sportscar has won the heart and soul of petrolheads worldwide, since the French brand’s recent revival, and we’re pleased to see the Alpine A110 finally in Gran Turismo Sport.
If that’s not satisfying for you, 11 more cars have also been added for free by Polyphony Digital, and that includes the 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1, 1970 Dodge Challenger, and the 1971 De Tomaso Pantera, an Italian-style supercar with a Ford V8 heart. The 1997 (W20) turbocharged Toyota MR-2, 1988 (A70) turbocharged Toyota Supra, 2007 Audi R8 4.2 FSI R Tronic, and 2011 Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 also make an appearance.
The 2016 Subaru WRX STI Isle of Man Time Attack race car, 2017 Turn 14/Falken Tire Subaru BRZ race car, and Gran Turismo’s own unique old-school F1500T-A grand prix-style, single-seater, open-wheeled race car.
Also, two new infield layouts of the fictitious Blue Moon Bay Speedway have been added, as well as three new events, namely, Stars & Stripes showdown, amateur Vision Gran Turismo trophy, and professional F1500 Championship.
As expected, bug fixes and behind the scenes improvements have been made to the game. Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’ll be turning off our communication devices, and we’ll have our eyes locked on our televisions.
