With the next Gran Turismo 7 update scheduled for Thursday, November 24, the game’s official website has revealed the new content for players to explore with its usual pre-update post.
This confirms the identity of the cars that come into play – for which we had already made some pretty solid guesses – as well as the surprise new circuit: Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta. A long-awaited feature film will also debut.
As usual, the post and video you’ll see below is only for the new content in the update. We’ll have to wait for the update to arrive to check out some more new features, although we already know there’s a whole host of things coming to celebrate both the Gran Turismo World Finals this weekend and the series’ 25th anniversary on December 23.
Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.26 New Track
A new track is always the biggest news, and this month’s is an absolute smash hit: Road Atlanta.
The circuit in Georgia, USA is near Lake Lanier, one of the Netflix filming locations. ozark replacing Lake of the Ozarks – in the hilly northeast of the state. Working with the topography, the 12-turn circuit features impressive elevation changes and challenging curves.
Once owned by motoring legend Don Panoz, the circuit has hosted top-level events in Can-Am, Trans-Am, Formula 5000 and even NASCAR, but is perhaps most famous as the home of Petit Le Mans. by Panoz.
This ten hour (originally 1,000 mile) endurance race is closely based on the rules of Le Mans itself and sees some of the most successful closed wheel cars compete for the title.
The inclusion of Road Atlanta means that all three GT7The new real-world circuit sites of Daytona, Watkins Glen and Road Atlanta are North American circuits that host top-tier IMSA races.
The preview does not reveal whether the different layouts available on the circuit, but the images suggest that there will be weather changes as well as a day/night cycle.
Gran Turismo 7 update 1.26 New cars
Along with the new circuit, we have official confirmation of the three new cars coming on Gran Turismo 7 too.
First on the list is the classic 1996 Nissan Silvia (S14) Ks Aero, a car that has been in Gran Turismo (other than minor titles and GT Sports) as long as there was a Gran Turismo.
It’s the top-of-the-line model of the S14 generation, sporting the 208bhp version of the SR20DET and – as the ‘aero’ name suggests – some aero additions above the base model. We’ll likely see the car enter the used car dealer rotation, although it should be available as a “hot” addition when the update arrives.
Another classic, but probably the one heading to the Legends Car dealership, is the Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500. This limited-run model – 500 cars only – was a homologation special, converted by Aston Martin and Tickford from the original RS Cosworth.
As well as being given an additional 20bhp from the upgraded engine, the car was the basis of a hugely successful Group A race car which, among other things, won UK Touring Car Championships ( BTCC), Australia (ATCC) and Germany (DTM), as well as the Bathurst 1000. Twice.
Finally, there’s a modern performance car, in the form of BMW’s M2 Competition. This coupe is based on the 1 Series sedan sporting the BMW S55 engine, producing 40 hp more than the already potent 365 hp N55-powered M2. We expect it to fit into Brand Central.
Additionally, there is also a special 2019 Red Bull X 25th Anniversary Gran Turismo Edition, available to participate in one of the 25th Anniversary Special Events. It is unclear whether this is a separate car, a livery or an unregistered car like the Dior De Tomaso.
New Features in Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.26
In addition to all of the above, 1.26 will see the start of something fans have been asking for. Gran Turismo 7 launched: salable cars.
A post on the PlayStation Blog for the update confirms that players “will be able to sell cars in their personal garage once the GT Café menus have been completed.” Of course, we don’t yet know how this feature will work, but it will probably be great news for players who have 412 Honda NSX Gr.B cars for… whatever reason.
Two new collections of Scapes will also be added in the update, with ten locations on the new Road Atlanta circuit and a set of 26 locations called “Illuminations”. It seems to be themed around places with decorative lighting.
We don’t yet know what other features the update will add, but it will likely be revealed in the patch notes once the update is released.
A period of server maintenance will take the game offline from 06:00 to 08:00 on Thursday, November 24, during which time players will begin to be able to download the update. However, you will not be able to log in and play the new content until the maintenance period is over and you update the game.
