Gran Turismo Sport Adds MAZDA RX-Vision GT3 Concept

Introducing two special events commemorating Mazda’s 100-year anniversary. 

The May content update for Gran Turismo Sport Patch 1.59 will be available tonight, May 21 at 11:00pm. (Internet connection required)

MAZDA RX-Vision GT3 Concept (Gr.3)

The MAZDA RX-Vision is a concept car announced at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. Based on Mazda’s “Kodo-Soul of Motion” design theme, this was a challenge to create the most beautiful FR sportscar that Mazda could come up with. This car is also powered by the next generation rotary engine “SKYACTIV-R,” a dream that Mazda wants to bring to life in the future.

Overcoming numerous technical difficulties, Mazda successfully introduced a commercial rotary engine through the Cosmo Sport back in 1967. Thereafter as the only manufacturer to mass produce rotary engines, they worked to improve output, fuel economy, and durability, and even took the overall victory in the 1991 Le Mans 24 Hour Endurance Race in their 787B.

The MAZDA RX-Vision GT3 Concept expresses the design beauty of the base car in the form of a more aggressive race car. To meet the performance requirements of the Gr. 3 class, the design draws from the 787B engine concept, with a 4-rotor engine brought back to life using SKYACTIV technology. This new rotary engine is mounted in a lightweight body to achieve unprecedented performance.

Two Special Events 

Mazda’s dream rotary engine racing machine, the RX-Vision GT3 Concept is finally coming to Gran Turismo Sport on Thursday, May 21 at 11:00pm PT. Mazda is celebrating its centennial anniversary this year since its establishment back in January 20, 1920. 

Starting on Friday, May 22 in Gran Turismo Sport, Mazda will be hosting two special events commemorating Mazda’s centennial anniversary and the release of the RX-Vision GT3 Concept; the “RX-Vision GT3 Concept Time Trial Challenge,” and the “RX-Vision GT3 Concept Livery Design Contest.”


The top winners from both events will receive special prizes from Mazda including a limited-edition sketch and miniature car. This is a unique opportunity to feel and share the spirit of Mazda’s motorsports and design celebrating its 100th year. We invite everyone to take on this challenge!

    • “100% Completed at Launch”…. Grow up. If they say it’s complete, then it’s complete. No sensible adult is making list of demands like a child. That’s not what this post is about.

    • shadysaiyanz
      You did not play Gran Turismo Sport on October 17, 2017, the game was incomplete and have been updating in more than 2 years to have more content, many features are still missing as I said in the first comment, God of War was released 100% finalized all content is recorded on the disc or the PSN download file, while one game was GOTY the other almost scored yellow on Metacritic.

  • Nice work Mazda and th sport. Looks so cool. Like how the rear end looks like the rx-7. I was playing th sport yesterday and in two player mode, thefe is some sort of limiter put on the throttle of one of the two players. This was using the cars from my garage. Please fix this or patch it.

  • GT Sport is the best sim on console.

    • iamtylerdurden1 It is a good game, the best is not, it lacks several resources that I said in the first comment above.
      The best simulator today is Project Cars 2

  • @TEW-SP-BR you really went out of your way on the PlayStation forums does not matter which car game in your opinion is better the sales speak for themselves on the best console period.

  • Gran Turismo is better known and has more history that Project Cars will sell more anyway, Metacritic is the best parameter to know which is the best and there it says to be Project Cars.

  • PhilS1990
    If you prove to me that there are resources in Gran Turismo Sport that I said in the first comment you can kick me out

    Truths hurt !!!

    • What you’re spamming here has nothing to do with the MAZDA RX-Vision GT3 Concept which this Blog post is about in the first place.

  • PhilS1990
    I’m not sending any spam, I’m asking to do a better job in Gran Turismo 7 with features that were lacking in Gran Turismo Sport, if you don’t like it don’t disturb it.

    I’m talking about Gran Turismo.
    You want me to talk about the MAZDA RX-Vision GT3 Concept, it is a beautiful car, thanks Polyphony for adding it to the game Blah Blah Blah.
    I’m going to talk about Gran Turrismo 7 better in terms of resources as I said in the first comment.

    • As I can’t fix it
      what a pity, you can understand.

    • I get that you didn’t like their online gaming-focused approach in the form of Gran Turismo Sport but putting up things that have nothing to do with the topic is generally frowned upon.
      I’m not saying that you aren’t allowed to say anything but it’s just not right to post stuff that has nothing to do with the topic.
      It just make people who do that look bad.

      By the way, didn’t you had another account here? Why aren’t you using that other account?

  • PhilS1990
    Yes I had another account, I will not stop asking for the job to be done correctly, I buy the game at launch and I want it to be a decent game with the amount paid
    a PS4 game in Brazil today is 30% of my salary, the PS4 cost two months of my salary, I want to buy the game and know that I bought something very good like it was with God of War and The Last of Us.

  • How do you get this car? Do you have to purchase a DLC?

  • I had GT Sport for exactly 36 days. Paid 23.99$ on the PlayStation store. 32 hour download. Had to delete 3 games that were installed for over a year just to gain enough hard drive space. I am a seasoned sim veteran all the way back to PS2 and Gran Turismo 2. Today at log in was final straw! I had an event, as event host, Im pretty important to be there as the player list was full. Low & behold! UPDATE REQUIRED! Ok, cool, no problem, I go to check, Another 8 GB? Nowhere else was there 8 GB. So Polyphony Digital is asking me if I want to play more, they have to use more space, which means deleting ANOTHER game!?! Whats the mean to an end here? AM I in a BETA test that is paid? Is the overall business model to consume the users gaming platform as much as possible? What gives? How do I get my 23.99$ back for fraudulent game specifications of 119 GB. Then lets go _ no dynamic weather, no active real world movement (Night/day), no in car wheel setting FFB, No Daytona and no team driving. Thats your “Real” simulator. I feel fleeced to say the least. Project Cars 2 beats GTSport any day of the week in play ability, Assetto Corsa Competizione will destroy GTSport! Rightfully so! I want my $ back convicts!

    • Now I’m really scared to start the physical copy if the game that I had purchased last Black Friday. I have a 500 EVO 860 SSD in my Pro, so not much space. Had to get rid of COD: Modern Warfare since it took up almost half of my 460 GB available space o my SSD at 214 GBs. 214 GB for a fps. That is just egregious!

    • vikings2018skol
      Gran Turismo Sport does not have many features that I said in the first comment, if the GT7 doesn’t have those features it will fail, a game must have a goal and GT Sport doesn’t, the goal would be in career mode.

  • YES, it’s a ROTOR👌🏼 How could you not love it. I really hope Mazda can bring a SkyActive Rotary too the people and mass produced a RX9 or something💯 Iv had a RX4, RX7 and now iv got me the awesome RX8😆 absolutely love every Rotary iv had and now got✌🏼

  • @granturismo can y’all please add the 2019 mustang 5.0 or atleast the 2020 GT500, that’ll be great

  • @granturismo can y’all please add the 2019 mustang 5.0 and maybe put 800-900hp
