The next free monthly content update for Gran Turismo 7 will be dropping today, May 25. Right on schedule as usual.
Update 1.34 will see three new cars being added to the racing sim game. There are no tracks or layouts but we do get one substantial addition which is the ability to buy engine swaps.
In GT7, you can swap the engines of a car with other compatible engines. Previously, engine swaps were only earned from the daily rewards- which itself is a random chance. So you’re relying on luck if you want to do an LS swap, some of the many issues you’ll face if you continue to play Gran Turismo 7 post-game as a single-player game.
The update will now add the ability to just buy an engine swap. It’s performed at GT Auto, rather than the Tuning Shop.
Speaking of the Tuning Shop, there is a new Ultimate tier of performance upgrades available as well.
Both the new engine swaps and Ultimate parts will unlock once you reach Collector Level 50, the current level cap.
Gran Turismo 7 May 2023 Update New Cars
Three new cars join the ever-growing car list of Gran Turismo 7. And it’s a mix of historic classics, JDM icons and a SEMA GT Award winner- the last since the award was discontinued after 2018.
Interesting to note: as of the time the update goes live, the two cars with model years earlier than 2000 are available at the Used Cars dealership, rather than the Legend Cars dealership as specified in the patch notes.
With the May 2023 update, the current car count in Gran Turismo 7 sits at 471.
- Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT Veloce ’67 – Used Cars
- Greening Auto Company Maverick – Brand Central
- Nissan GT-R NISMO (R32) ’90 – Used Cars
The update adds two extra Menus to keep on collecting cars and two new locations for Scapes: the National Stadium of Japan and The Lake District, UK.
The full patch notes of update 1.34 is available here.
Gran Turismo 7 is out now on PS4 and PS5.
