Eight new cars have been added to Gran Turismo Sport in the latest free update.
Forza Horizon 4’s exclusivity to the Xbox One and PC platforms means that PlayStation 4 owners are deprived of one of the most critically acclaimed racing games released in a long time. Of course, there are still plenty of other racing games available on PS4 for gearheads to get their virtual driving thrills.
Gran Turismo represents the PlayStation’s premier racing game franchise, but the car selection in the latest title, Gran Turismo Sport, pales in comparison to Forza’s comprehensive collection. You can’t drive newer cars like the McLaren Senna, Lamborghini Urus, and Porsche 911 GT2 RS like you can in Forza, for example. Happily, however, Gran Turismo Sport’s car selection is continually expanding. Best of all, new cars are being regularly added to the game completely free of charge in extensive monthly updates.
Gran Turismo Sport's free January update has rolled out, adding eight "historically significant” cars to the roster, as well as a new track to drive them on. There’s a vintage 1953 Aston Martin DB3S race car and 1956 Porsche 356A 1500 GS GT Carrera Speedster, while fans of classic muscle cars will favor the 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350.
One of the standout cars is a 1971 Ferrari Dino 246 GT, often hailed as one of the most beautiful cars ever made. More modern machines round off the list, including a 1998 Honda Integra Type R, 2000 TVR Tuscan Speed 6, 2001 BMW Z8, and a 2007 Nissan Fairlady Z Version S, better known Stateside as the 350Z.
You'll also be able to take these cars for a top speed run on the Special Stage Route X circuit included in the update, a high-speed oval that measures 18.82 miles and features two high-banked corners. New events added in the update include new Z Heritage featuring the 2007 Nissan Fairlady Z Version S, as well as new rounds in the Stars & Stripes, Vision Gran Turismo Trophy, X2014 Nations Cup, and Gr. 1 Prototype Endurance Series.
