Updated Mazda LM55 Vision Gran Turismo

The Mazda LM55 Vision Gran Turismo, introduced to Gran Turismo 6 in December 2014, has been updated to reflect the changes made to the full scale model appeared at the “Goodwood Festival of Speed” in this year. The main updates include changes to the decals and the colours of the wheel rim, the use of carbon for the brake covers and the change to Dunlop tyres.

If you already have an LM55 Vision Gran Turismo in your garage, the car will be updated automatically to the 2015 version. Please note that those changes will be reflected also in all Replay Data saved prior to the update.

In addition, it is also possible to obtain the updated version of the car by participating in the new Seasonal Event, available only for a limited time.

The SRT Tomahawk S Vision Gran Turismo, SRT Tomahawk GTS-R Vision Gran Turismo and the SRT Tomahawk X Vision Gran Turismo have been released.

After the update has been installed, the cars can be purchased from the [Vision GT] option within the [CARS] section in “My Home”. Alternatively, it is also possible to obtain the SRT Tomahawk S Vision Gran Turismo by completing a lap (regardless of the lap time) in the new Seasonal Event, available only for a limited time. The two other models can be won as a prize by obtaining a Bronze award or better in the Seasonal Event.

Furthermore, the SRT Vision GT, SRT Development G-Suit and SRT Race G-Suit matching each of these car will be given out to everyone after the update.

Addition of the new GT Academy 2015 cars

The Nissan Zytek Z11SN Greaves Motorsports from GT Academy Round 3 and the GT-R LM NISMO from Round 4 have been added to the [Dealerships] option of the [CARS] section in “My Home”: they are available for everyone to purchase.

Sweet. I already got the Academy cars by taking part in the event. :) But I can’t wait to try out these 3 new SRT Vision cars. Isn’t one of them a ridiculous 2000bhp or something? I hope with all the work that has been put into these Vision cars that they are all part of Gran Turismo 7. I would also love to see a return of the Seattle track for GT7, maybe if you have a word with Sucker Punch Studio they could share their assets? :D

It’s great to see continued support for Gran Turismo 6 on PS3 but it’s also odd that SCE want to keep a large amount of players on the old console.

How about an update on the current gen console and not an obsolete one? Turn10 will soon have had 2 Forzas released on Xbox One whilst PD is still stuck on PS3. Get a grip, you’re a joke. Considering we heard nothing at E3 and the games we did hear about aren’t out until next year I suspect we will be waiting until 2017 at the very earliest for GT7.

We close the comments for posts after 30 days.
