Peugeot Vision Gran Turismo hits GT6, GT Academy qualifying enters final round

It’s your last chance to get involved with this year’s competition

I’m happy to announce that the Peugeot Vision Gran Turismo is now available in Gran Turismo 6, available exclusively on PlayStation 3. When Peugeot designers and Peugeot Sport engineers teamed up to create an exceptional super car the result was Peugeot Vision Gran Turismo.

This racing car, specifically designed for the Anniversary Edition of Gran Turismo 6, brings together the major elements of a hyper efficient endurance car. Boasting a radical style, the Peugeot Vision Gran Turismo stands out with its almost absent aerodynamic elements and its air-rending monolithic figure. Road-hugging aerodynamics that do not rely on spoilers. A pure driving ecstasy born from the sports prototype bloodline.

After Update 1.19 has been installed, the car can be purchased from the [Vision GT] area within the [CARS] section in “My Home”. Alternatively, it is also possible to obtain the car by completing a lap (regardless of the lap time) in the new Seasonal Event, available only for a limited time.

GT Academy update

If you’ve ever dreamt of becoming a professional racing driver, GT Academy could help to make those dreams become a reality. This is your final chance to join an exclusive list of Gran Turismo gamers who have gone on to become NISMO athletes.

The final online qualification round on Gran Turismo 6 opens today, 2nd June and runs until 16th June, finishing just after the actual Le Mans 24 Hour race. PlayStation racers will be given a unique opportunity to put the new Nissan GT-R LM NISMO car through its paces at the historic Circuit de la Sarthe, home of the Le Mans 24 Hours, before the car makes its real-life debut in the world-famous race.

Jann Mardenborough (2011 GT Academy Winner) will be competing alongside two other previous winners, Lucas Ordoñez and Mark Shulzhitskiy, in the innovative front-engined, front-wheel-drive 1250bhp hybrid race car at Le Mans 24 Hours on 13/14th June.

There will be no logitech support unless Logitech or a 3rd party makes a security chip for your device it won’t happen.

Please re-release this game or make a new GT7. Not many of us own a PS3 now.

GT7 is already confirmed for PS4.

Really?! Not many own a PS3?! Are you drunk.

The user base must justify these free updates, so doubt there’s ‘not many’ who own a PS3 right now.

I’m going to assume you’re trolling us with updates on your game that was made in 1999 because you’re saving GT7 for E3.

If not, there’s this new thing you have called the PS4.

What are you going on about? GT7 has already been announced for the PS4. GT was first released in 1997, BTW.

Is there a problem with this update? I keep getting error when i try & update the game. Error ‘80710723’ whatever that means :D

Front-wheel drive? In a Le Mans car? How does that work?

I have to admit that my knowledge of car technology is exclusively derived from playing Gran Turismo games. But those have taught me that FF engines are only useful in cars that are built for getting you there on the cheap, not for getting you there quickly. Citroën 2CV, VW Lupo. Not Le Mans cars.

Then again, I don’t think a 2CV has ever had access to 1250bhp – it would be ripped apart the moment you put your foot down on the gas.

Is this GT-R LM NISMO available in GT6? I have several Nissan / NISMO GT-R cars in my garage, but none that look like this. I definitely would like to take it out for a virtual spin.

Anyway, good luck to the Le Mans team!

*d’oh, I now see that the challenge *involves* driving it. I will certainly do that!

Its saying round 3 results are shut as of 2 june? Cannot rank…

Why don’t you guys at SCEE move the people who lost their jobs from Evolution Studios to Polyphony Digital and work on GT7? Those guys are quite talented

Hi William, could you guys please bring another “final” update for GT5? GT-TV was completely shut down a couple of weeks/months ago, and it’s no longer possible to get the Spec 2.0 intro for that game, in its 1080 glory.

We close the comments for posts after 30 days.
