If you’re looking for one of the best racing simulators out there, you need look no further than Gran Turismo Sport. And it only keeps getting better.
This month, the programmers have added another batch of new cars and one very prominent race track: the Circuit de la Sarthe, home to the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The 8.5-mile (13.6-kilometer) circuit in Western France can be driven with or without the modern chicanes, so you can (virtually) experience the original 3.5-mile (5.7-km) straight flat out and unimpeded, if you’re so inclined.
And what better cars to drive it in than the Group C prototypes of the late ’80s/early ’90s. Polyphony Digital has added the 1988 Jaguar XJR-9, ’89 Sauber-Mercedes C9, and ’92 Nissan R92CP to the garage. The Jag and Benz won Le Mans in their respective years, and the Nissan took the C1 class title in the final season of the All-Japan Sports Prototype Championship. They’re the first Group C racers to feature in the game, and compete in the same Gr.1 class as modern Le Mans prototypes and Vision Gran Turismo concepts.
And along with them, the programmers have added a ’68 Fiat 500 F, ’67 Lamborghini Miura prototype, ’96 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IV GSR, 2011 Renault Sport Megane Trophy and 2016 Clio RS 220 Trophy, and 2015 Subaru BRZ S.
There are some new events added as well, including a Group 4 Cup, World Hatchback Championship, and Lamborghini Cup. And the devs have taken the opportunity to fix some bugs and enhance some other, minor features as well.
