As expected, Gran Turismo 7’s March update (update 1.44) is arriving this week, bringing three new cars to drive.

Kazunori Yamauchi teased them in his traditional silhouette image on X, and the lineup looks solid. With a super SUV making its Gran Turismo debut and a legendary classic returning, there’s a lot for GT7 players to look forward to this week.

Three new cars teased for Gran Turismo 7

In a post on X, formerly Twitter, Kazunori Yamauchi confirmed that three cars are coming to Gran Turismo 7 in update 1.44 this week. While he didn’t confirm their identities, fans have already worked them out.

Judging from its distinctive shape, the legendary Toyota GT-One will seemingly headline the update. First seen in Gran Turismo 2, the GT-One is a Gran Turismo staple that fans have been requesting since GT7 launched.

It was built as a homologation special for Toyota to enter the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1998 and 1999 but sadly didn’t win. Presumably, the GT-One will be a GR.1 car in GT7 and only available to buy in the Legends Car Dealership at an extortionate cost.

Joining the GT-One appears to be the Lamborghini Urus. Launched in 2017, the Urus is one of the fastest production SUVs in the world, powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8. It’s not clear yet if GT7 will feature the original model, the 2022 facelift, or the hardcore Performante variant, so we'll have to wait for Polyphony to confirm.

Although the Urus has prominently featured in Forza Horizon 5 and The Crew Motorfest, it will make its Gran Turismo debut this week. Despite SUVs dominating the car industry, it also marks GT7's first modern production SUV. Perhaps it will pave the way for the Ferrari Purosangue to appear in GT7.

The third and final car appears to be the second-generation Audi R8. Again, it isn’t clear which variant is coming to GT7, but the prominent rear wing suggests it’s either the V10 Plus Coupe or the limited R8 Coupe GT RWD. Regardless, all variants are powered by a 5.2-litre V10 engine.

Yamauchi didn’t’ reveal any other details, but most GT7 updates include new GT Café Menu Books, World Circuits events, and Scapes location.

This will likely be the case in update 1.44, but we’re hoping for a new circuit. The last new track added to GT7 was the Lake Shore Snow circuit in the Spec II update last November. It's also been over a year since we've had a new road circuit with Grand Valley Highway.

Update 1.44 coming this week

Yamauchi confirmed that GT7’s next update will arrive this week. We don’t have a date yet, but most GT7 updates come out on the last Thursday of the month. That means update 1.44 will likely launch on Thursday, March 28.
