Every monthly update brings an assortment of new cars to drive and update 1.46 continues this trend.

First up is Skoda's new Vision GT, revealed at an event in Prague. Inspired by the 1957 Skoda 1100 OHC Spider, Skoda’s Vision GT is a single-seater electric car.

This could signal the start of a partnership between Gran Turismo 7 and the Czech manufacturer that will see more Skodas added to GT7 in future updates. The Skoda Vision GT is available at Skoda's Brand Central dealership.

Next up is the 2024 Afeela Prototype. Rumors were swirling that the Afeela would be joining the game after its showcase at the 2024 CES show earlier this year and that now seems to be the case. This electric car is an evolution of Sony’s Vision S concept, with two 180kW motors capable of producing a combined 482 hp.

Finally, the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 completes update 1.46’s car lineup. This is the perfect example of classic American muscle, with a pounding 7.4-liter V8 producing a mighty 449 hp. This is the first time the Chevelle has appeared in a Gran Turismo game since GT6 over ten years ago.

There are also three new World Circuits events:

Japanese Clubman Cup 550
Alsace - Village Reverse

American FR Challenge 550
Trial Mountain Circuit Reverse

Vision Gran Turismo Trophy
Grand Valley - Highway 1

Completing update 1.46 is a new Scape location set in San Diego and a new set of engine swaps.

It’s been a long time since GT7 players have had a new track to race on. The last update to add a new circuit was the Spec II update, which added the Lake Louise snow track set in a Canadian ski resort nearly six months ago in November 2023.

However, we haven’t had a new tarmac circuit since Grand Valley returned in February 2023, so a new track is long overdue. Over two years on, several iconic circuits from past games are still missing in GT7 such as Autumn Ring, Apricot Hill, and Midfield Raceway.
