The creator of the Gran Turismo series, Kazunori Yamauchi, has confirmed via social media, as an update next week, likely the update on April 25, will add the first new content to Gran Turismo 7 since its launch on March 4th.
Yamauchi’s post is short and to the point and only says “an update is coming next week”, but that includes the now traditional vehicle “silhouette” we have seen used across GT Sport‘s life to tease which cars come in the update.
As with GT Sportit looks like GT7‘s first content update will be a compact three-car package – and it’s not a particularly difficult puzzle to solve.
In the lower right corner we have the 2021 model Subaru BRZ. This will be the third BRZ road car in GT7along with two previous models, but this is the second-generation version that shares its foundation with the Toyota GR86 instead of the previous 86 GT.
It’s a car we’ve expected to get to the game, thanks to its proposed look in the 2022 Toyota Gazoo Racing GT Cup Series schedule. However, it is a little earlier than expected as its round is only in July.
Above it is a kind of sibling, in the form of the Subaru BRZ GT300. This car competed in the 2021 Super GT series under the R&D Sport team and took a victory in the race and the overall championship title for Takuto Iguchi and Hideki Yamauchi.
It will be the latest Super GT Series race car added to the series page GT Sport‘s 1.15 update added three 2016 machines. But as a lower category GT300 car that is relatively similar to GT3 cars in terms of pace, we would expect it to fit into the Gr.3 class rather than the Gr.2 class of the GT500 cars.
Finally, there is a recurring fan favorite with the Kei-class Suzuki Cappuccino. Strangely absent from GT Sportdespite the appearance of classmates, the Cappuccino returns from GT6.
We can not tell which of the two versions of the car this is – the original 1991 EA11 or the updated 1995 EA21 – and both were Premium models in GT6so it retains at least some mystery.
Of course, this only reflects which vehicles are coming GT7 in the update and no other content or changes.
Fans will remember Yamauchi’s open letter to the GT community regarding the poorly received v1.07 update, in which he laid out a brief roadmap for GT7. Among the points specifically mentioned in this announcement were “updates implemented between now and the end of April, which will add new cars and track layout”.
As the end of April is fast approaching and the April 25 update is likely to be the only remaining option, we have yet to see any additional course layouts. This means that this update should bring new layouts, probable variants of circuits already in play, as well as other fixes and changes.
