Gran Turismo 7 next free update unleashes Nissan beauties

By Kes Eylers-Stephenson,

Gran Turismo 7 is getting another free update for PS5 and PS4 players, so PlayStation Studio Polyphony Digital has teased four of the upcoming cars that will be made available. October 2022 will see four new cars.

Update: Gran Turismo 7's latest free update has now been fully unveiled in a new trailer. It features two Nissan's, and Maserati, and a Mazda.

Fully unveiled on PlayStation Blog, the update will drop on PS5 and PS4 on October 19th, 2022. It features four new cars, as noted in the speculation below. These are the Maserati Merak SS ’80, Mazda Roadster NR-A (ND) ’22, Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 ’18, and the gorgeous old Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R (KPGC110) ’73. With two new scapes also here for Whitby — a southern UK seaside town — and Nishiazuma Sky Valley — a Japanese autumn forest road — it is clear that there will be plenty of gorgeous new images to see after the content drops.

Gran Turismo 7 is one of our best racing games on PS5. What do you think of the new cars? Is anything taking your interest? Let us know in the comments!

Original Story: For Gran Turismo 7, the content doesn't stop even after a September 2022 update. This time, Polyphony Digital is teasing four new cars for the endless stream of free updates and new content.

GT7 revs up free update for October 2022

What have we got here? Well, after Kaz Yamauchi tweeted the teaser, a few gearheads have been digging into what these new autos might be. In the top left, there is the pretty distinctive Maserati Merak — a V6 version of the Bora with a slightly more gaudy rear end that has a big useless frame in it. GT Planet managed to work this one out from the bonnet, which is pretty wild. In the top right, we have a Nissan GT-R GT3, but no one seems too keen to label it as 2018, 2020, or a specific team livery version.

Then, in the bottom left, it looks like we are getting the gorgeous 1973 Nissan Skyline GT-R. This one will no doubt be hitting the Legends Car dealer because there are only 197 versions of the car ever made — but it is made legendary via its nickname "Kenmari" after a marketing campaign. In the bottom right, we have a Mazda MX-5 of some variety. The 1.5 is already in the game, so this will be a 2-litre variation or something more niche.

We thought highly of the game in our Gran Turismo 7 review, but it took a turn after a broken economy and a badly made trophy list. However, with the updates has come fixes and improvements, which makes sense given that PlayStation Studios has this registered as one of its many live-service games in its new PS5 era.
