Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.25 arrives today at 11 PM Pacific Time.

Polyphony Digital is about to bring new content to GT7 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.23 adds four new cars including Maserati Merak SS. Gearheads can expect the new update later tonight or early tomorrow morning, depending on your time zone.

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

  • Maserati Merak SS ’80
  • Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 ’18
  • Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R (KPGC110) ’73
  • Mazda Roadster NR-A (ND) ’22

Here’s how they describe the Maserati Merak SS ’80:

The Maserati Merak was a mid-engine sports car introduced in 1972. It was developed to be a sister model to the Bora which had debuted a year earlier. The exterior stylings were very similar to the Bora, both having been designed by Giugiaro. However, while the Bora had been a fastback, the Merak was a notchback with a fastback style pillar. This allowed it to retain the same silhouette while making the car feel lighter and improving engine cooling. Similarly, while the Bora housed a V8, the Merak was equipped with a 187 BHP 3L V6 taken from the Citroen SM. With this more compact engine, the seating arrangement changed to a 2+2 layout which allowed for some luggage space. A high-performance model was later released in 1975 as the Merak SS. The compression ratio was increased and other adjustments were made to tune the engine to 216 BHP, increasing the top speed from 139.8 mph to 155.3 mph.

That’s not all though. Update 1.25 also adds two new Scapes: Autumn Leaves and Whitby.

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