Now You Can Drive The Pagani Zonda R In Gran Turismo Sport (If You Can’t In Real Life)

Good news, gamers: Polyphony Digital has released its latest round of updates for Gran Turismo Sport. And it includes nine very tempting sets of virtual wheels.

Chief among the mew additions for November, we’d argue (and wager you’d agree) is the Pagani Zonda R – one of the most hardcore, track-focused pieces of equipment ever devised by Horacio and his team in Modena. But that’s not all.

Almost as tempting is the 1984 Ferrari 288 GTO, the early twin-turbocharged supercar based on the 308 GTB that lead to the legendary F40 and kicked off a line of flagship Prancing Horses that has run straight through to today’s LaFerrari.

They’re joined as well by the 2008 Maserati GranTurismo S, which was, surprisingly, not part of the game with which it shares its name until now. So on that level alone, we’re glad to see that rectified. But if you’re not into Italian exotics, there’s more for you in store as well.

Like the three new Super GT-spec racers of the same vintage as the Maserati, based on the Honda NSX, Lexus SC430, and Nismo GT-R. There’s a 1961 Jaguar E-Type (widely regarded among the most beautiful cars ever made) and 2005 Mini Cooper S for the Anglophiles out there, too. And for rally fans, the 1998 Subaru Impreza STI 22B in all its all-wheel-drive boxer glory.

While they were at it, the programmers also added the Catalunya circuit. The home to the Spanish Grand Prix just outside of Barcelona joins the list of 18 tracks around the world that can be played in 54 different layouts. Plus there’s a couple of new virtual events and some new interface features as well – all of which adds up to an even better version of one of the top racing sims on the market.

      Uhm, not really. Of course they have cars that they already had but they also have new ones. Also, those older cars drive better now because GT Sport has better physics than GT5 and 6.
