The new update is finally here, and now we have the Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.19 patch notes too!
Along with the expected new cars there is plenty to be excited about for GT7 players.
Let's dive into the update!
The trio of new cars are here. Or, they will be.
While the Porsche 918 Spyder '13 is available right away from Brand Central, you will have to wait until Legend Cars ticks over on 29 July to get the Maserati A6GCS/53 Spyder and the Nissan Skyline Super Silhouette.
New menu books
Two new menu books have been added to the GT Cafe, giving those single-player-minded racers something to do!
Menu Book No. 43 is called ‘Enter the Neo Classical Challenge’ and No. 44 is ‘Enter the Hyper Car Parade’.
You will need to be a Collector Level 35 to unlock both of them, and of course have completed the previous books.
These books also bring new events, which will hopefully provide some good rewards too!
