Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.35 Patch Notes: Who ordered the Music Rallies?!

The last week of the month has rolled around, and with it Gran Turismo 7 update 1.35 is here. June's update brings three new cars to GT7, along with a few new races.

There's no new circuit this month, but we do have six new Music Rallies, which has to be one of the most bizarre things to focus on in an update. So without further ado let's dive into Gran Turismo 7 update 1.35.

Ride of the Valkyrie

The most powerful Aston Martin road car is now in Gran Turismo 7. The Aston Martin Valkyrie is definitely the main attraction of this update, and will be an instant buy for players once the servers come back online. You can grab the amazing hypercar from Brand Central.

The Valkyrie isn't the only new car in this update though. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution III GSR '95 and Subaru Impreza Sedan WRX STi '04 are also coming to GT7. Both will be available from Used Cars and are also great additions for those with a love of WRC.

There are two new Japanese 4WD Challenge 600 races to test the Evo and Impreza at, including an off-road one at Fisherman's Ranch. There's also a new Hypercar Parade and WTC 800 race that are both surely intended for the Valkyrie.

Music Rally gets more content

In what must be the most out-of-touch aspect of any monthly update since Polyphony slashed rewards early last year, the Music Rally is getting six new events.

Music Rally is one of the few modes players can use when servers are down and even then it doesn't really get touched. So why Polyphony has decided to make it a core part of this update is rather baffling.
