Gran Turismo 7: Which Cars Are Coming With 1.13?

Did it arrive earlier than expected? Barely teased yesterday by the director of Polyphony Digital, update 1.13 arrived on today Gran Turismo 7. And for the first time since the game was released on March 4th, a content update has been rolled out. So the patch 1.13 arrives on the program with three new cars: the Subaru BRZ GT300 (winner of the Super GT 2021), the Subaru BRZ S of 2021 and the Suzuki Cappuccino of 1991.

A new path is added next to them: that of the 24 hours of Spa-Francorchamps, some images of which are available below. On the game’s official website, Polyphony Digital even provided some layout details. 7004 meters of asphalt with a vertical drop of 104 meters, 21 hairpin bends with the longest straight which measures 751.4 meters.

Of course, the new added content is the main implementation of this 1.13 update. Nevertheless, many improvements and adjustments have been made to Gran Turismo 7, as evidenced by the numerous patch notes shared by the developers on the official website of the game. In this regard, we especially note the changes aimed at improving the comfort of the game: the details of each race (temperature, tire wear rate, fuel consumption rate …) are displayed in the Event screen, while various options have been added to adjust the volume.

Hoping these fixes and this free update will allay players’ anger: Over the past month, players have been disappointed following a 24-hour overhaul on Gran Turismo 7. In addition to being unable to access the game, this maintenance had also been criticized for making it more tedious to get game credits.
