Gran Turismo Sport’s January Update Adds Eight New Cars And The First Returning Fantasy Track: Special Stage Route X

38

The first update of the year for Gran Turismo Sport is an interesting one. We are getting new cars from various eras and the first returning fantasy track.

The track in question is Special Stage Route X. Introduced in Gran Turismo 5 via DLC, it does not feature the highway routes of other Special Stage Route courses, but it’s essentially an oval track. An oval track with a whopping 12,000km straights, tight bank corners with the ocean surrounding the two long stretches of road.

It’s not the iconic fictional tracks fans may have expected, or that was teased before. But, there’s now a proper track to push the top speed limits if you’re into that, and the third oval track for some bump-draft racing. Those classic tracks are coming, surely enough.

As for the cars, it’s an eclectic mix like always. For Japanese cars, we see the return of the Honda Integra Type R and Nissan Fairlady Z Version S (Z33), otherwise known as the 350Z. We get another muscle car in the form of the¬†Shelby G.T.350. The rest are European machines, including the first-ever Porsche car model in speedster form and the return of TVR.

Here’s the car list:

  • Porsche 356 A/1500 GS GT Carrera Speedster ’56 (N100)
  • Shelby G.T.350 ’65 (N300)
  • Ferrari Dino 246 GT ’71 (N200)
  • Nissan Fairlady Z Version S (Z33) ’07 (N300)
  • Honda Integra Type R (DC2) ’98 (N200)
  • BMW Z8 ’01 (N400)
  • TVR Tuscan Speed 6 ’00 (N400)

Update 1.32 is also adding new GT League events and a new Circuit Experience for its previous new track, the new Tokyo Expressway South Loop layout. The update should arrive today.
