Fans had to wait an unusual long time for a new GT Sport patch. Developer Polyphony has already announced that this year’s updates will rather be “modest in frequency and volume”. Players had to wait for patch 1.56 for almost a month, even two for a new content update but now it’s finally here and presents three new vehicles.

The update introduces the Aston Martin DBR GT1 from 2010, which won the Le Mans 24 hours race in 2019 with Formula 1 legend Fernando Alonso and his crew behind the wheel. A strong contrast to the powerful Aston Martin is the Fiat 500 1.2 8V Lounge SS 2008. It is a compact, modern vehicle, mostly used as a city car. The third addition is the Nissan 180SX Type X from 1996, which is a fastback coupe.

On top of that, various events have been added to the “Grand Turismo League” such as the “FR Challenge”, “Group 3 Cup”, “Lamborghini Cup” and “X2019 Competition Endurance Series”.
