Gran Turismo 7 update 1.17 brings three new cars, an international circuit and additional menus

Suzuki V6 Shield Pikes Peak Special ’98

Returning to the series for the first time in a decade, the legendary ’98 Suzuki V6 Escudo Pikes Peak Special is a monster machine developed specifically to compete in the toughest conditions for any race car as it conquers the treacherous hill climb. The frame has a completely new design that uses an aluminum space frame. To maximize performance, the drivetrain was extensively modified, moving the engine from the base model’s forward position to a mid-mount configuration. The fully overhauled 2.5L V6 engine has been fitted with twin turbochargers allowing it to produce a maximum torque of 981 BHP and 95 kgfm.

Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo (Version Gr.3)

This model is an embodiment of Suzuki’s motorsport prowess, extensively tuned to meet Gr.3 regulations. The base Suzuki VGT uses the 1,340 cc (1,340 cm³) Hayabusa engine connected to 3 high-output electric motors in an all-wheel drive drivetrain. However, this Gr.3 version has been changed to a simple front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout with a twin-turbocharged V8 engine made up of 2 Hayabusa engine blocks for a total displacement of 2,680 cm³ (2,680 cc). In this form, the monstrous engine can produce a maximum of 577 BHP at an astonishingly high 10,000 rpm. Compared to the base model, the design aesthetic was modified for more downforce, with a larger front wing, as well as the addition of front and rear diffusers, a GT spoiler, and hood scoops.

1932 ford convertible

In the world of custom cars, the US is often number one in terms of quality, volume and gender. The oldest of these genres, now an iconic part of American culture, is the Hot Rod. This was a movement that originated in the 1930s, where the Ford Model T and later Model A and Model Bs were heavily modified by their owners. Extensive exterior modifications were made to these cars, such as removing the wheel arches, hoods, and cutting the body to make chop-top convertibles. More powerful engines were then added to cars as the technology improved over the years.

Watkins Glen International

Nicknamed “The Glen,” Watkins Glen International is a historic highway loop in upstate New York, approximately 260 miles northwest of New York City, that opened in 1956 and is surrounded by rolling hills. The first half of the track comprises high speed sections with medium to high speed corners, and the second half features combinations of technical and tight turns. The undulating track is also narrow, which encourages high-intensity racing battles. The back straight leads to a high-speed chicane, followed immediately by a right turn onto an Outer Loop section, which is one of the highlights of the track. From there, the Long Course will bump into the technical section known as “The Boot”, while the “Short Course” bypasses this segment entirely.

Gran Turismo Café: additional menus

The following 3 additional menus have been added:

  • Toyota 86 Collection – Opens at collector level 20
  • Honda Type R Collection – Opens at collector level 20
  • Rotary Engine Collection – Opens at collector level 32

Be sure to keep an eye on the official GT and PlayStation channels as there will be plenty more updates to come from the team. Until then, happy racing!
