Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.17 brings three new 3 cars, an international circuit, and Extra Menus

Suzuki V6 Escudo Pikes Peak Special ’98

Returning to the series for the first time in a decade, the legendary Suzuki V6 Escudo Pikes Peak Special ’98 is a monster machine developed specifically to compete in the most extremely harsh conditions for any race car in conquering the treacherous hill climb. The frame is of an all-new design using an aluminum space frame. To maximize performance, the powertrain has been extensively modified, moving the engine from the base model’s front position to a midship configuration. The fully tuned 2.5L V6 engine has been fitted with twin turbochargers allowing it to produce a maximum 981 BHP and 95 kgfm maximum torque.   

Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo (Gr.3 Version)

This model is a realization of Suzuki’s motor sporting prowess, extensively tuned to meet Gr.3 regulations. The base Suzuki VGT uses the 1,340 cm³ (1,340 cc) Hayabusa engine linked to 3 high-power electric motors on an all-wheel drive powertrain. This Gr.3 version however has been changed to a simple front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout with a V8 twin-turbo powerplant comprised of 2 Hayabusa engine blocks for a total displacement of 2,680 cm³ (2,680 cc). In this form, the monstrous engine can produce a maximum 577 BHP at an astoundingly high 10,000 rpm. Compared to the base model, the design aesthetics have been altered to achieve increased downforce, featuring an enlarged front spoiler as well as the addition of front and rear diffusers, a GT wing and air ducting on the bonnet. 

1932 Ford Roadster

In the world of customized cars, the US is often number one in terms of quality, volume, and genre. The oldest genre of these, now an iconic part of American culture is the Hot Rod. This was a movement that originated in the 1930s, where the Ford Model T and the later Model A’s and Model B’s were heavily modified by their owners. Extensive exterior modifications were performed on these cars such as removing wheel arches, bonnets and cutting the body to make chop-top convertibles. More and powerful engines were then added to the cars as technology improved over the years. 

Watkins Glen International 

Nicknamed “The Glen”, Watkins Glen International is a historic road course found in New York State, roughly 260 miles northwest of New York City, which opened in 1956 and is surrounded by rolling hills. The first half of the track comprises high-speed sections with mid to high-speed corners, with the latter half features tight, technical turn combinations. The undulating track is also narrow which encourages high-intensity racing battles. The back straight leads to a high-speed chicane, immediately followed by a right turn into a banking section (Outer Loop), which is one of the track’s primary highlights. From there, the long course will run into the technical section known as “The Boot”, while the ‘Short Course’ bypasses this segment entirely.

  • Also egregiously you don’t allow a test drive before any car purchase, with the “economy” such as it is and no ability to sell cars even at 10-20% value it really put me off. How am i supposed to know if i want the car? why would i PAY TO WIN/COMPETE for online if you cannot try the car. You used to be able to test drive.

    Don’t act like your 3 cars in this update are some gift to players, that is clearly not the case.

    The tracks and driving model are compromised doing things this way.

    You want your cake and eat it to, but instead you should have made two games, a career offline game and a f2p game, or what actually would have been innovative is a career online game. F2P or not.

    I won’t play f2p games, and if you graft $70 into f2p extra i won’t support that, as someone who buys 75%+ of Sony exclusives. I will just move $60 over to my son on his switch.

    Just so disappointed over this game, got a lot right after the last ones be sad.

    There’s different ways to make money post launch off a $70 game and this isn’t it. It bodes very worryingly for Sony and it’s live services strategies going forward.

    The tactic with the reviews that was pulled also demands derision and future mistrust as well. They wanted that high metacritic by any means.

    The drm is just to protect their mtx shop.

    Look at forza horizon 5 they are offering a hotwheels expansion pack. This is how you do it offer something compelling for a clear cost.

    not roulette into 2k credits 15 times in a row. with a link in that menu to the $$$ credits shop.

    You see the difference and why i would rather support turn 10?

  • Buy Turn 10

  • Selling cars would break the economys

    Why don’t you actually think about it and be a little more intuitive. You should not be able to sell every car, that would be a disaster. All you would have to do is play the campaign and sell the 100 plus cars you get for free and you could buy any car you want. It would sort of take away the aspect of collection and the thrill of earning a great car.

    What they should do is allow you to sell duplicates. That’s it. Just duplicates.

  • And it’s so lazy to say Horizon is better looking. If you are talking about the actual cars and a game about cars then absolutely no Horizon is not better looking the car models are nowhere near Gran Turismo. Are talking about realistic lighting then probably not. If you want to compare out of bounds trees Horizon has an advantage but even then the foliage in that game is far from consistent.

  • ford mustang mach e

  • more co-op games

  • more co op games and split screen

  • New map and New Avatar Skin Wheeel Spin more realistic better Graphics

  • When to adjust the settings of the second player on 2 players which is still

  • Do you not have internet?

    You are going to miss a lot of good games if that’s your requirement.

    One time over the course of 4 months there was a server issue. Once. If you have a normal internet like 99% of people it really shouldn’t be a problem even though I’m not a fan of the online requirement it baffles me as to why that would keep you from playing the best racer in years.

    And like I said to the other person selling duplicates needs to be a thing but selling any car isn’t the way Gran Turismo works and I really hope it doesn’t happen. Everybody will just sell all the cars they receive in the campaign and buy literally the best cars in the game. Owning Great cars will have very little meaning and the collection aspect will all but disappear.

    But just to let you know Gran Turismo 7 is the best Sim racer I’ve played since the PS2 days of GT. On PS5 it’s truly incredible especially considering how amazing the game feels with a pad. You literally don’t need a wheel because a racing game has never felt this Good on a controller. The physics, car models, driving quality, haptics, these are all benchmark for the genre. You can actually play the game offline by the way. Despite the lies out there you can play arcade mode offline. If you don’t have internet I’m sorry but gt7 is the best racing game this generation too bad you have to miss it.

  • Lol.

    If you can’t play the campaign enough to unlock missions or whatever else it is you are crying about good luck in multiplayer.

  • Do you guys remember the London circuit? I think it was from GT 5 Prologue. I wish we could get it back in GT7. Anyway, the last update was great.
