Although we have known for a long time that an update to Gran Turismo 7 was due out soon, Gran Turismo series creator Kazunori Yamauchi has confirmed it will arrive this week.
Yamauchi has posted his traditional “silhouette” teaser on social media, revealing not only that the update will be released the week of August 22, but also the vehicles it will add to the game.
As we have seen on the other side Gran Turismo 7In its lifetime, the teaser features three cars, somewhat suggesting that this will be the monthly standard for the game pending future changes.
It’s a fascinating trio of vehicles this month, with an acclaimed modern sports car, cool classic muscles and one of the best Formula 1 cars ever made.
Perhaps the easiest to spot is the Porsche Cayman GT4 on the left. This is the first generation of the Cayman GT4, based on the second generation 981, from 2015, and the brother of the Cayman GT4 Clubsport already featured in Gran Turismo as Porsche’s Gr.4 race car. Both use a 3.8-liter flat-six borrowed from the 991 911.
Facing the top right of us is the 1969 Pontiac GTO “The Judge.” The Judge was a stripped-down version of the GTO versus the Plymouth Road Runner, with a 6.6-liter “Ram Air 400” engine producing approximately 370 horsepower. .
Finally, in the lower right corner, is the McLaren-Honda MP4/4. This was the most successful F1 car ever built, with 15 wins from the 16 World Championships in the 1988 season and 15 pole positions – and it didn’t hurt that Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost were the drivers of the team.
The MP4/4 would be the first new Senna-powered race car to be added to the series since the special Gran Turismo 6 Senna Tribute in 2014. However, it remains to be seen whether the car will be added with its real name or will be next to the F1500T-A – a modified version of the Lotus 97T from GT6 – as a fictitious model.
Of course, these won’t be the only new cars in the update. A special livery version of the De Tomaso Mangusta will also appear in the game, as part of a collaboration with Dior. The official announcement for that stated that the car and the special racing suit would be available on Thursday, August 25, rather than tightening the date for the game update.
As always, we don’t know what additional content the update may contain. So far the game has only had one brand new song since launch – Watkins Glen – and a second would put it on par with the speed at which GT sport received new songs in the first few months.
Additionally, the Gran Turismo World Series Online Season 2 has some holes in the calendar that usually point to new cars or tracks, so we wouldn’t be surprised if an additional location comes in the update.
Fans are still crossing everything that can be crossed for the opportunity to sell surplus cars, first mentioned by Yamauchi in the rough roadmap published in March. We also expect an expansion of the single player offering with new menu books and races.
However, we’ll probably have to wait and see what the update brings when it arrives, which is expected to be around 0800UTC on Thursday, August 25.
