Gran Turismo 6 update adds new cars, tracks and game modes

A wealth of brand new content leaves the garage today

Hello GT fans. We’re happy to announce that update 1.12 is now available to download for Gran Turismo 6. This update brings a host of new features and content to your garage and racing experience. Here is just a taste of what’s now available:

Toyota FT1 Vision Gran Turismo

The design concept FT-1 is honed to perfection in this rendition to enhance its features and designs required for pure racing competition. The designers’ original intention in designing the FT-1 was to unabashedly appeal to the die-hard car enthusiasts. This car can be earned by completing just one lap (regardless of lap time) in the new limited time FT-1 Seasonal Event.

Online Quick Match

Quick Match is a simple online racing mode that lets you take part in events with pre-determined regulations. When each individual event is entered, player matching takes place automatically, followed by the race itself. By selecting “Quick Match” from the My Home screen you can now quickly and easily join a race with players around the world.

Sierra Time Rally at Circuito de la Sierra

In our first original long course “Circuito de la Sierra”, modeled after the Ronda region of Spain, players will attempt to complete a lap around the course within the allotted time. The time remaining can be extended by passing through checkpoints in the 12 different sectors of the course. During your drive you can raise your score and combo level by successfully overtaking vehicles and passing through speed traps along the way. Be careful, any impact to the barriers or other cars will cause your combo to be lost.

In addition to the new game mode, the Circuito de la Sierra track can be played in both offline single player and online race modes.

Nissan GT-R NISMO edition

The GT-R NISMO is the ultimate articulation of the R35 GT-R. First released in 2007, Nissan engineers have been meticulously honing the GT-R’s performance with each version of the car that has followed. This latest version has set the fastest volume production car record at the famous Nordschleife (North Course) on Germany’s Nurburgring with a time of 7:08.679 with its retuned suspension, updated turbochargers and increased downforce. The new GT-R NISMO edition will be awarded as a free gift to everyone who participated in this year’s GT Academy online event.

Best GT-R ever. You can sell your Black Edition ;)

Awesome. It’s great you keep updating the game with that stuff for free. Other publishers (Codemasters) would charge like 10 euro for that track.

So when is the game getting b-spec?

cue happy motorracing fan (me) today, i will download this update ASAP (ps how long does it take to update?)

You will die waiting. I don’t see any problems with “soundz”.

7.2

@ icecrasher_zero play Forza 5 then say GT6 “soundz” are fine.

7.3

@icecrasher_zero
Firstly, stop seeing sounds and start hearing them.
Then, if the problem persists and you cant find any difference between the sound of a real car and its digital counterpart, there are specific doctors that might help you.

Regarding GT6: I dont hold my breath. I rented it and almost completed it in two days. The problem with GT6 is that Polyphony cant seem to get money from me (and, im sure, a lot others) for their product. Especially, when CARS is around the corner…

Huge update with free content, it’s pretty unbelievable nowadays. Thank you, PD.

The FT1 is great to drive. Sierra time rally is really fun even in the Fiat 500. I’ll try quick match this evening, sounds like a nice addition. All in all a nice update, thanks!

Impressive!

Yay, free stuff! Thanks

The Concept GT car looks so sleek! can’t wait to drive that!

I doubt there’s been another game with so many substantial free updates. Fantastic service to racing fans from Polyphony and a great return to form after the shocking disappointment that was GT5.

I am not able to update GT6 from version 1.0 to 1.12!

Any advise?
