Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.23 adds three new cars and two new scapes

Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.23 arrives today at 11 PM Pacific Time.

In addition to bug fixes and the like, Polyphony is adding three new cars:

  • Volkswagen ID.R ’19
  • Nissan Silvia K’s Type S (S14) ’94
  • Porsche Vision Gran Turismo Spyder

Here’s how they describe the ID.R:

The ID.R’s body is made from carbon-fibre with oversized wings placed on the front and rear to produce maximum downforce. At 5.2 m long, the car is relatively large but actually weighs less than 1,100 kg. The dual-motor 4WD system produces a maximum 500 kW (670 BHP) / 650 Nm (66.3 kgfm), allowing for a 0-62.1 miles/h acceleration time of just 2.25s. These performance statistics put it well on par with race cars using internal combustion engines. In the real world, the ID.R competed in numerous motorsports events around the world with record breaking results. At the 2018 Pikes Peak Hill Climb, driver Romain Dumas set a record of 7m57s, the first ever run to break the 8 minute mark. Again at the Nürburgring Nordschliefe, the ID.R set the record for fastest lap by an EV at 6m5s. At the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the car became the first to ever finished the legendary hillclimb in under 40 seconds with a record of 39.9s. 

But that’s not all. Update 1.23 also adds two new Scapes: California II and Tokyo II.

Gran Turismo 7 is out now on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. You can buy it on Amazon.
