There's Twelve New Cars & Sport Mode Tweaks In Gran Turismo Sport 1.13

Blue Moon.

Another big update has pulled up for Gran Turismo Sport, adding a bunch of new cars, a few new events, track layouts and some interesting changes for the titular online Sport mode.

The twelve new cars joining the game’s garage include:

  • Alpine A110 1600S ’72
  • Alpine A110 Premiere Edition ’17
  • Audi R8 4.2 FSI R tronic ’07
  • De Tomaso Pantera ’71
  • Dodge Challenger R/T ’70
  • Ford Mustang Mach 1 ’71
  • Gran Turismo F1500T-A
  • Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 ’11
  • Subaru WRX STI Isle of Man Time Attack Car ’16
  • Subaru Falken Tires / Turn 14 Distribution BRZ ’17
  • Toyota Supra 3.0GT TURBO A ’88
  • Toyota MR2 GT-S GT-S ’97

While the new events in GT League add the Stars & Stripes Beginner League cup, Vision Gran Turismo Trophy Amateur League and the open wheeled F1500 Championship Professional League, as well as a smattering of new races in existing categories.

You can now race on the American themed Blue Moon Bay Speedway, with two layouts – Infield A and Infield B – and reversed versions of these.

A quite significant set of changes have also been made to the Sport Mode, with improved algorithms to the Sportsmanship Rating, the potential to incur a Driver Rating penalty from collisions, stacking time penalties if you don’t slow down, and the ability to be disqualified. Backing that up, you can now submit grief reports to Polyphony.

It’s not just the stick, but also helping to avoid collisions is the fact that lapped racers will now ghost, meaning they can’t ruin the game for those at the front with dodgy driving.

Here’s the full patch notes:

    I just had a go with the new update. The new events in the beginners league are certainly amusing. The Stars & Stripes cup let’s you use any car (as long as it’s American), but puts you racing against the most rubbish cars possible.

    So I picked some beast with the power of 1000 horses. A kilohorse, if you will.

    This did not end well! Autodrive, countdown, ready, accelerate rapidly into the back of some piece of crap car in front of me.

    I did win in the end, obviously.

    They’re heading the right direction by providing some new cars and SP content like the Monza circuit experience.
