Among the new cars of this upgrade, we find a silhouette well known to fans of virtual asphalt: the Suzuki V6 Escudo Pikes Peak Special in its 98 model returns after a decade of absence. After its debut in 199X in Gran Turismo 2, this earthy bestial appeared for the last time in the sixth installment – skipping the Sport episode altogether. It therefore integrates once again the franchise of Polyphony Digital through this new updatewith a few new features, including a V6 engine mounted in the center rather than the front – and, we hope, an unforgivable ride, steering wheel in hand.
From the concept car to the hot rods of Gran Turismo 7
In another kind of idea, the Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo has a version specially designed for the Gr.3 class. The car benefits for the occasion from all new lines – including a spoiler of the best taste – as well as a twin-turbo V8 engine, fuel at 10,000 revolutions per minute, just that. Finally, the game’s latest addition to the garage couldn’t be more different as it’s a hot rod: a modified version of the 1932 Ford titled Roadster, which slashes its roof and rough-hews its body to guarantee optimal aerodynamics.
It’s not just cars in life; there are also circuits. Gran Turismo 7 welcomes the Watkins Glen International, famous North American mechanical race track. Located in the state of New York, this circuit is particularly famous among NASCAR fans, with its long chicane and its narrow and winding sections. Finally, three new collectible menus have been added to the Gran Turismo Café: Toyota 86, Honda Type R and Rotary Engine. It is not yet known whether this update will have an influence on the various prices displayed for cars in the game, whose fluctuating nature towards inflation has recently been controversial.
