Aston Martin Valkyrie Coming to GT7

Gran Turismo 7

A new Gran Turismo 7 update is inbound next week and one of the cars being added is the Aston Martin Valkyrie. Along with it come two additional cars.

Another month, and another content update for GT7 is on the way. As always, series producer and Polyphony Digital founder Kazunori Yamauchi posted the signature silhouetted image of all the cars being added.

Contained within the image are three cars, and one of them is unmistakably the Aston Martin Valkyrie.

Aston Martin Valkyrie in GT7

The Valkyrie is one of the fastest road going hypercars in the world. It has appeared previously in a video game, GRID Legends. At one point, it was being developed for entry into the Le Mans Hypercar class. This was before regulations changed and the brand diverted their efforts towards F1.

The car was designed in partnership with Red Bull Racing and Adrian Newey. It has a 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 developed by Cosworth which produces 1,160 horsepower in tandem with its electric motor. With its low kerb weight, that makes it incredibly fast, but perhaps that’s not the headline feature of the car.

Instead that would be its noise, with the motor redlining at an ear-bleeding 11,000rpm!

Expect the Valkyrie to cost a lot. The Bugatti Chiron comes at a price of 3,000,000 credits, so it’s a safe bet to say the Valkyrie will be somewhere near that. If you need a quick tip to help you make a load of credits fast on GT7, here’s a guide on how to do so.

What Else is being Added?

The other two cars in the image are two Japanese sport saloons (or sedans). One seems to be the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution III, produced between early 1995 and mid 1996. The other is undoubtedly the Subaru Impreza WRX STI produced between 2003 and 2005, nicknamed the ‘Blobeye’.

Additionally, the 2024 Toyota GR Corolla Circuit Edition is set to be added into the game, as reported upon by Jalopnik. It would appear though it won’t be in this update. It has also been a few months since we had a new track added into the game.

Grand Valley Highway was added in February’s update, so maybe June’s update will see the next addition. Whether that’s a real world track or an updated GT original, nothing is official as of yet.

If the update’s pattern of releasing every last Thursday of the month are to continue, expect the June 2023 update to release on 29 June.
