It was only last month when the last update from Gran Turismo Sport dropped, giving us more nostaglic racers such as the Mazda 787B, a Formula 1 car, and even a new fictional track. Now, in line with their promise of continuously updating the game for free, Polyphony Digital has released Update 1.25.
For starters, there are eight new cars to choose from which are as listed below:
Ford Mark IV Race Car '67 (Gr.X)
Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe '64 (Gr.X)
Abarth 500 '09 (N100)
Lancia DELTA HF Integrale Evoluzione '91 (N200)
Mini Cooper 'S' '65 (N100)
Volkswagen Beetle 1200 '66 (N100)
Amuse S2000 GT1 Turbo (N600)
Abarth 1500 Biposto Bertone B.A.T1 '52 (N100)
The list is mostly comprised of classic cars and retro racers from the day, most of which are European except for the two Gr. X racers. That said, there are some newer cars tossed into the mix such as the Abarth 500 and the Amuse S2000 GT1 Turbo, a fan favorite from previous Gran Turismo games.
A new real-world circuit has been introduced into the game in update 1.25 – the Red Bull Ring in Austria. The 4.8km long track plays host to a number of motorsports events including Formula 1 and MotoGP. The Redbull Ring is known for being a high-speed circuit combined with numerous tight corners, long fast straights and a host of elevation changes.
To make the GT League more exciting, three new events have been added. In the Beginner League, there's the Beetle & Samba Bus Fest. There's also now a Group 3 Cup in the Amateur League and the Nostalgic 1979 Race in the Professional League.
More features have been added in as well. In Sport Mode, there is now an archive section to view rankings. More importantly, you can now test your internet connection quality. New sections in the Museum and a new location in Scapes round up the latest update.
