Title update 1.27 for Gran Turismo 7 is available as of 15 December, and with it are five new cars. Four are immediately available for purchase, whereas the final one currently remains only accessible to those who were able to answer a question during the Gran Turismo World Finals.
There is a retro rally car, a midship American sportscar, a sports saloon, a top speed king and a Vision Gran Turismo concept car.
Available to Everyone
The big headline for the four cars available to purchase from Brand Central is obviously the Bugatti Chiron. It has an 8.0-litre quadturbo W16 which produces as near as makes no difference 1,479 horsepower. Despite weighing just short of two tonnes, it is capable of going from a standstill to 62mph in 2.3 seconds. And will continue to a restricted top speed of 261mph.
The Chiron is based on Bugatti’s Vision Gran Turismo car that made its series debut in Gran Turismo Sport. It was discovered to be coming to the game in a datamine that we covered back in July. So it’s safe to say that the rest of the cars that were leaked are coming to the game as well.
As expected, the car is expensive. To get the Chiron, it will cost 3,000,000 credits.
The other cars included in the update are also going to be popular additions. Next up is the Corvette C8, the first in the nearly 70 year history of the Corvette range to have its engine mounted behind the driver’s cabin. The in-game model is the Stingray which has a 6.2-litre 495 horsepower V8, propelling it from 0-60mph in 3.3 seconds and onwards to 194mph. It’s relatively cheap, at 85,000 credits.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm has a 2.9-litre twinturbo V6, essentially a Ferrari Portofino engine with two less cylinders and 1,000 less cubic capacity. It’s still more than enough for it to produce 532 horsepower, which is 30 more than the Giulia Quadrifoglio. The GTAm goes from 0-62mph in 3.3 seconds and maxes out at 186mph. In-game, it will set the player back 220,000 credits.
Last but not least, the Toyota Celica GT-Four rally car from 1995. That year in the World Rally Championship, Toyota was caught using illegal turbo restrictors. It was subsequently excluded from the championship and banned for a year by the FIA. An action deemed impossible today, for the FIA to punish those who breach regulations.
The Celica GT-Four’s 2.0-litre turbocharged Inline-4 produces just short of 300 horsepower and only weighs 1.2 tonnes. Unlike the three previous cars, it isn’t found in Brand Central, instead in the Legend Cars dealer possibly for a limited time, and costs 250,000 credits.
Ferrari VGT – Available Soon
Now we come to the big one, the Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo. Revealed during the Nations Cup grand final on the weekend of the Gran Turismo World Finals. It was promised to all players who could answer a simple question. In the Viewers Gift campaign tab, players were asked which driver took pole position for the grand final. If they answered Takuma Miyazono, they would get the Ferrari VGT in their garages before it was available to everyone else.
As promised, the car has been gifted to those who correctly answered and will be available in Brand Central to purchase on 23 December. It’s perhaps safe to say it will cost a lot of money. We don’t know exactly how much yet but if you failed to claim the car for free, get saving now because the car is incredible.
The car shares its 3.0-litre twinturbo V6 with the 499P, Ferrari’s upcoming entry into the Le Mans Hypercar class. In tandem with three electric motors, it produces a combined power output of 1,363 horsepower. And the car weighs 1.25 tonnes, making it 1.09hp per kilogram.
All content is available now on Gran Turismo 7 through update 1.27. Also available in this update are some new Extra Menus in the Café, some new events in World Circuits and Norway is now available in Scapes.
