Zagato TZ2, Mazda Rotary Concept Lead Latest Updates For Gran Turismo Sport

The developers at Sony’s Polyphony Digital studios have released a series of new updates for Gran Turismo Sport this month, including nine “new” cars and one very challenging racing circuit.

Not the least of them is the 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ2, a very rare and timelessly beautiful classic crafted by the talents at Zagato. Only twelve of these were made, solely in racing spec, with bodywork not unlike those of the Ferrari 250 GTO and Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe – and this is the closest the vast majority of us will ever get to driving one.

Even rarer still is the 1960 Plymouth XNR, a one-of-a-kind concept designed by (and evidently named for) the legendary Virgil Exner and crafted by Carrozzeria Ghia.

Not into rare Italian classics? Don’t fret, dear gamers, because there’s more. Seven more, in fact, including the 2011 BMW M3 GT racer, the 1970 Mazda RX500 concept, the 1992 Honda NSX Type R, 1989 Nissan 300ZX Twin-Turbo, the GT3 versions of the Porsche 996 (from 2001) and 997 (from 2008), and the 2006 Dodge Viper SRT10 coupe.

Finally, gamers will now be able to drive these (and all the rest of the cars already featured in Gran Turismo Sport) at the Fuji International Speedway. The circuit is one of Japan’s finest, made up of some 4.5 kilometers (2.8 miles), 16 corners, and a 1.5-km (0.9-mile) straight. Moreover, there’s a smattering of new events and features included as well in the September update, which you can check out right below.

    I so love that cars design

  • Another free update and more cars! (albeit some has been featured previously in the series).

    I love the RX 500 rearlight that will glow more when you hit the brake (similar to Aston Martin Ogle Sotheby Special)
