After Kazunori Yamauchi's Twitter teaser last weekend, Polyphony Digital has revealed what players can look forward to in tomorrow’s Gran Turismo 7 October update. Gran Turismo 7 will add four new cars and two new Scapes locations.
Four new cars coming to Gran Turismo 7 tomorrow
Arriving a week earlier than usual, Gran Turismo 7 update 1.25 will add four new cars. 1980 Maserati Merak SS.
Styled by Italdesign’s Giorgetto Giugiaro, the Merak is a mid-engine Italian sports car. Closely related to the Maserati Bora, the Merak is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 instead of the Bora’s 4.7-litre V8.
Other cars coming in Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.25 include the 1973 Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R (KPGC110), Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 '18, and Mazda Roadster NR-A (ND) '22.
Yes, you counted correctly: there are four new cars coming in tomorrow’s update instead of three like in most updates.
Whether we needed another Mazda MX-5 in GT7’s car roster is questionable, but it’s an eclectic selection nonetheless.
Additionally, Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.25 will add two new Scapes locations: Autumn Leaves and Whitby.
The latter is set in Yorkshire and the Humber, UK, while the former is set based on Nishiazuma Sky Valley, a 17.8-kilometre road in Fukushima, Japan. Perhaps this is paving the way for the return of Autumn Ring in GT7?
We may also get some new GT Café Menus and World Circuits events, but the lack of new tracks in the update is disappointing.
As with all GT7 updates, the servers will be offline tomorrow between 07:00 – 09:00 BST and 06:00 – 08:00 UTC on 20 October. This means Gran Turismo Update 1.25 will go live after 9am BST/ 8am UTC tomorrow, 20 October.
We’ll find out more when the Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.25 patch notes are published tomorrow.
