Gran Turismo 6 Update 1.19 Available Now, Adds 2 New Cars

The latest update for the racer won’t be bringing any new game features but will add two highly anticipated cars, the Peugeot Vision GT and the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO. The update clocks in at around 270MB and is available to download now.

The Peugeot Vision GT is staggeringly beautiful with 1:1 power-to-weight ration. The concept car is powered by a turbocharged V6 3.2L engine which delivers 875hp and weighs in at 875kg. All of this allows the Vision to accelerate from 0-100 kph in an impressive 1.73 seconds. The car can be purchased in the Vision GT area of “My Home” or it can be won by competing in the car’s new Season Event, which will only be available for a limited time.

The Nissan is a very radical car, it is a front-wheel-drive, front-engine prototype and is powered by a 600hp twin-turbo V6. What makes the car unique is that the gearbox is connected to the flywheels, which makes it capable of sending 1,000hp to the rear wheels in three second bursts. These definitely look and sound like race winning cars.

  1. I’m wondering if I’m in a time warp. I was sure this update would be tomorrow morning after maintenance, and to line up with GT Academy round 4. Still glad it’s here today, more fun for the GT6 meet this evening.

    I’m guessing that there will be no new track for round 4 either, so we’ll probably see something bonkers like the 3 minute long le mans circuit.

    • The one unique fact that GT Planet forgot to mention was that the Nissan LMP1 will only be available tomorrow through round 4 of GT Academy. I wish they’d have found out what was what, it’s not hard given the correct info is on the official GT website.

      • *from tomorrow

      • Ah, good spot. I was hoping we got race the Nissan tonight, looks like Peugeots than!

      • Same here for that Nissan LMP1. Looks like it’ll be going into a wall at Monza next week instead.

  2. Nice as it is supporting an old game, a PS4 version might be better?

    • This.

      • With a little forethought, they are not mutually exclusive. It’s already been said that all of the standard cars are likely to be included in GT7 and it’s not as if they can’t be making these cars to GT7/PS4 level and then scaling them down further to be in GT6.

  3. It’s always puzzled me why these small sized updates take so long to download and install in comparison to other games’ whopping Gigabyte sized updates or DLC that whizz through.
    They must use some form of winzip file compression with a 5:1 crush ratio.
    Anyhoo, that Nissan looks stunning with fun to drive written all over it!
