2017 Mercedes F1, Mazda 787B Just Two Of New Additions To Gran Turismo Sport

Gran Turismo Sport is already one of the best driving simulators on the market, but it keeps getting better with new additions, like these latest rolled out for July.

Chief among them is the Mercedes-AMG F1 W08 EQ Power+ that Lewis Hamilton drove to the 2017 Formula One World Championship. It’s one of the fastest cars ever made, setting lap records and winning races on circuits around the world, which would be enough for some gamers. But there’s more.

Almost as enticing is the 1991 Mazda 787B, complete with the iconic neon orange and green argyle Renown livery. The Group C racer was the only Japanese car ever to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans until Toyota did the same this year, and is still the only rotary-powered car to claim the top prize.

Along with the racers, the developers have added a first-gen Ford GT LM Spec II test car (all decked out in matte black), a Ferrari 250 GTO (specifically #3729GT), and three little JDM Kei roadsters: the 2015 Honda S660, 1991 Honda Beat, and 2002 Daihatsu Copen. These are just seven of the amazing 218 cars that can now be downloaded from the PlayStation Store for GranTurismo Sport.

Polyphony Digital has also added the picturesque Circuit de Sainte-Croix in the South of France, a new in-game racing suit/helmet design studio and a handful of new events. Check it all out in the images and video below… if you haven’t already shifted your attention and booted up your PS4, that is.

    the graphics are simply stunning

  • I think the addition of custom suit/helmet design is a good choice, beside the new car and track.

    Also another news is that GT Sports now has a microtransactions feature, basically real money for in game credits. They reasoned because there are a lot of gamers who don’t have time to look for in game money but want to purchase the growing car roster in GT Sports.

    GT Sport is an amazing game, but it just needs so much more. The graphics are truly mind-blowing, but you can’t have races in the rain or at night. The CPU in racing is way too dull and slow, while online racing is fun, but the penalty system needs a little fixing. The tracks are not enough and nor are the cars, though they are growing and the custom livery editor is just fantastic (I only wish the F1 car was customizeable too, but it seems like Mercedes won’t let them do it). I don’t want them to make something as realistic as Project Cars 2, but I’m also struggling to find in GT Sport all the things that we loved so much about the previous Gran Turismo (GT5, for istance)… And yes, I wouldn’t mind not having to switch to Project Cars 2 every time I want to have a proper, realistic and competitive race.
