Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.42 Patch Notes


Suzuki Jimny XC '18 new to Gran Turismo in Update 1.42

After the brilliant Spec II update in November, Gran Turismo 7 fans have been waiting a while for another update, but 1.42 is finally here.

Update 1.42 brings some new cars and the usual bug fixes and tweaks under the hood. But if you were hoping for more radical improvements to GT7 you will be disappointed.

Update 1.42 arrives

The update is now available to download and brings three new cars to the game. The headliner is the Suzuki Jimny XC '18, which is supported by two Vision Gran Turismo cars; the BVLGARI Aluminium and the Genesis X Gran Berlinetta.

The Suzuki and Genesis X will be available immediately from Brand Central, but the BVLGARI won't arrive until late February. Unless you bought the BVLGARI watch.

Other than those cars there isn't much. A new Cafe Menu Book has been added for the Jimny XC '18, adding three races. There is also a new Vision Gran Turismo Trophy with two new races but these aren't going to keep racers busy for long.
