latest update for Gran Turismo 7 With us now, it brings a host of new content, higher value events, and one of the most requested features since launch Gran Turismo Sport in 2017.
At just over 2.5GB on PlayStation 4 and just under 3.1GB on PlayStation 5, it’s one of the most significant updates we’re likely to see in the life of a game – but also one of the most important.
Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.26 New Features
The biggest news for most players in this update is the new Car Sale feature, which will finally allow spare cars to be removed from your garage and offer you some credit rewards for doing so.
Officially known as the Car Valuation Service, it is the most sophisticated version of this function seen in a Gran Turismo game to date, taking into account the car’s mileage, tuning status and “market trends”; Although this is not specifically detailed, it could indicate that if a lot of players are selling the same vehicle, prices will drop.
Once you’ve scanned the GT Cafe Menu Book 39 – the ultimate master menu book – you’ll need to head to your used car dealer and click on the Car Valuation Service tool in the top-right corner to access the feature.
You’ll be able to select any car in your garage except the one you’re currently using, manufacturer loan cars, and DLC cars (including pre-order bonuses) and rate its value.
The valuation consists of two components: the body valuation, which is the car’s current estimated value (at about 50% of its “base” price) and changes daily, and the adjusting valuation, which takes into account any upgrades you’ve made. You will be able to sell the car at that total price; Beware that you will lose tuning parts, but keep any cosmetic changes made in GT Auto.
One fun feature is that you can only sell one example of a particular car each day. We hope you don’t have too many Honda NSX Gr.B to change…
Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.26 New track
Update 1.26 adds one of the most requested real-world circuits in the GTPlanet suggestion forum: Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta.
This 2.54-mile circuit near Braselton, Georgia is home to the annual Petit Le Mans event, a 10-hour circuit endurance race featuring some of the world’s fastest closed-wheel cars and a staple of the motorsports calendar in the North American IMSA Series. .
It features 12 corners and some sharp elevation changes which should provide plenty of challenge. There’s also a new Circuit experience to go along with the circuit, using a Volkswagen Beetle Gr.3, with a 1,000,000cr bonus for completing all segments in Gold.
Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.26 New Cars
Three new cars are coming in the update, too, with two in the used car dealer – like semi-permanent “Hot” picks at first, so they’re available right away – and one in Brand Central.
Perhaps the headliner for most motorsport fans is the Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500. Developed by Aston Martin and Tickford as a homologation model for Group A racing, this limited-run Sierra RS Cosworth was a huge success. You can pick it up for 200,000 kronor in used cars now.
Fans of modern sports cars will look forward to the BMW M2 Competition. This M car is a hot model based on the coupe shape of BMW’s smallest car, sporting a 405-hp, turbocharged straight-six engine. If anything looks more like the original E30 M3 than the current M3, it can be yours for 91,000 crowns at Brand Central.
Finally, there is a car for JDM fans, with the 1996 Nissan Silvia (S14) Ks Aero. This is a car that has been in every major Gran Turismo title (other than GT Sport) So it’s making a welcome comeback, and as a front-engined, rear-wheel-drive coupe with 208 horsepower, it’s plenty of fun to drive, too.
- BMW M2 Competition 2018 – 91,000 cr (Brand Center)
- Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500 1987 – 200,000 CR (Used Car)
- Nissan Silvia (S14) KS Aero 1996 – 60,000 CR (Used Car)
A new, fourth car is also available, though it’s technically a livery of an existing car while also having a unique name. This is the 25th anniversary of the 2019 Red Bull X, which features a stylish faded red/blue paint scheme and special badging. You will win the car by simply clicking on the 25th Anniversary event badge at the top of the home screen.
Gran Turismo 7 Update 1.26 New Events
There are a selection of new single and multiplayer events in the update, many of which are related to our 25th anniversary celebrations.
You’ll find five permanent additions to the race roster, three of which are at the new and regular Road Atlanta circuit location GT7 Awards values. They are:
- Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta
- Turbo sports car racing
- American FR Challenge 550
- Gr.1 prototype series
- Brands Hatch
- European FR Challenge 550
- Willow Springs Racetrack
- Masters of historic sports cars
At the top of the screen, behind the 25th Anniversary event badge, you’ll find two additional single-player events that will be available until January 3rd. Francorchamps – The Grand Final Race this weekend – and a Nations Cup race similar to Thursday’s Repechage event using the Suzuki Escudo Pikes Peak at Willow Springs.
Each is worth 1.8 million in gold credits – 300,000 kronor for the 10th or better, 500,000 kronor for the 5th or better, 1,000,000 kronor – and you can only win each prize once.
There is also a new beta online that uses the same Escudo/Willow combo. This continues, oddly enough, until Monday 5 December, and although the double prize money has been floated previously, it currently appears with the regular prize of 2,000,000 kr for golden time (equivalent to the current record plus 3%).
You will need a PlayStation Plus subscription for the other events, which come in Daily Race A and Championship events that are not yet available.
The Daily A race will continue through three Global Finals themed events over the next two weeks. The first is to race the Gr.3 in the Deep Forest Reverse of the Manufacturers’ Cup, running through November 28th. From then until December 2 is a Regional Nations event featuring the Lamborghini VGT at Monza. Finally, there’s a McLaren MP4/4 racing at Interlagos for another Nations regional event. Each is worth four times the usual prize money.
The tournament events will also be based on the World Finals. The Toyota Gazoo Racing GT Cup Series features a three-round event for the GR010 at Fuji on November 25, November 29, and December 2. The Constructors’ Cup will be three races at Spa in Group 3 cars on November 27, November 30 and December 3. Finally, X2019 and Trial Mountain Reverse for the Nations Cup on November 28, December 1 and December 4.
Finally, there are two new additional menu books, each featuring car assembly tasks. You’ll need to choose a trio of classic Rino Book 12, with a six-star parts ticket as a bonus. Book 13 is a Skyline GT-R set – and you’ll need to visit Legends Cars (you can add cars to your wishlist directly from the Menu Book to receive a notification when they’re in stock) – with a six-star engine ticket award.
Gran Turismo 7 update 1.26 has other changes
There are a few other changes too, starting with the two new sets of Scapes. This set consists of a set in Road Atlanta and a themed “Illuminations” set featuring creatively lit backgrounds.
New liveries, based on the one used at this weekend’s World Finals, are now available in the View section of the World Map. These are free to download and use on your vehicles. You’ll also find 23 new “real” car liveries available in GT Auto, the purchase of which costs in-game credits.
Penalty lines have been tweaked in reverse courses in Deep Forest and Trial Mountain, and there are physics tweaks to my Super Formula SF19 car.
Gamers using the Thrustmaster T-GT and Fanatec GT DD Pro now have new options for button customizations.
Although not announced, there are also a selection of new engine swaps available, which are still being revealed by the community. However, you can find all of the currently known swaps at Our dedicated forum topic.
