Gran Turismo 7 update 1.17 patch notes

As we’ve said, there aren’t tons of alterations to look out for in terms of gameplay, but merely new content being dropped into Gran Turismo 7.

New cars

The headline addition has to be the long-awaited, return of the Suzuki V6 Escudo Pikes Peak Special ’98 – AKA Pikes Peak Escudo – a monstrous powerhouse of a vehicle that long-term fans of the franchise will be instantly familiar with. It’s been 10 years since we’ve seen it in Gran Turismo, but it’s back!

Additionally, a new GT Vision car is on the way in the form of the Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo (Gr.3 Version) which is a simply stunning-looking piece of craftsmanship and will inevitably want a lot of your credits.

The final vehicle on its way is the 1932 Ford Roadster and it couldn’t look any more vintage if it tried. An authentic hotrod, the Ford Roadster will make a fine piece in anyone’s car collection.

It’s been too long old friend.

New track

Gran Turismo 7 already offers a copious amount of energetic and varied rack tracks for you to tear up, but the 1.17 update is increasing the total with Watkins Glen International.

This New York-based track has plenty of opportunities to go fast and naturally provides more Circuit Experience for you to gain.

New menus

Another tiny but cool detail is the incoming arrival of new menus to complete. Players will be able to undertake the following goals and there’s also information on when they will become available too.
