Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.36 Patch Notes: 4 new cars come to GT7

After skipping July, the latest Gran Turismo 7 monthly update is here, and with it comes the Gran Turismo 7 update 1.36 patch notes.

Weighing in at 1.28 GB, update 1.36 brings four new cars plus new GT Café Menus, World Circuits events, and a bonus reward coinciding with the Gran Turismo movie. Let’s dive into the Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.36 Patch Notes to discover what’s new.

Gran Turismo 7 update 1.36 out now

No GT7 update is complete without some shiny new cars to drive, and the August update is no exception. Update 1.36 adds four new cars: the Chevrolet Corvette (C1) '58, Maserati MC20 '20, Toyota GR Corolla Morizo Edition '22, Toyota Ambulance Himedic '21.

The Toyota ambulance is certainly an unusual addition, but we’re happy to see more obscure cars added to GT7. From the Toyota Pod to the 1886 Mercedes-Benz Daimler Motor Carriage, the series has a history of celebrating the weird and wonderful.

However, the two Toyotas aren't accessible immediately. The Toyota GR Corolla Morizo Edition can be entered in Sport mode practices and Round seven of the Toyota Gazoo Racing GT Cup (TGR GT Cup) on 27 August.

Players who register a time in the Points Ranking will receive the hot hatch as a gift on 28 August. After that, it will be available to purchase from Brand Central in late September.

The Toyota Ambulance Himedic '21 can also be won by entering the Gift Viewers Campaign by watching the World Series Nations Cup on 11 and 12 August. It will then be sent as a free gift on 14 or 21 August depending on which broadcast you watch. Like the Corolla Morizo Edition, it will be available to purchase from Brand Central in late September.

There’s a bonus car too. To celebrate the release of the Gran Turismo movie this week, players can claim a free Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 ’18 sporting a livery inspired by the movie car until 28 September.

There are no new tracks, sadly, but the update also adds a handful of World Circuit races, GT Café Menu books, and Brand Central museums.

There are also minor physics improvements, a new Special Picks sales category in Used and Legend Cars highlighting popular cars based on your wishlist, and a new Scapes location set in a Japanese fire station. In addition, a few engine swaps have been added for select cars.

All in all, it’s a standard GT7 update. While it’s great to see Polyphony still supporting GT7 over a year after its release, we hoped for a more substantial update after July was skipped. There haven’t been any new tracks since Grand Valley Speedway was added in February and we’re still waiting for Polyphony to implement Sophy AI.
