Gran Turismo Sport’s 1.47 update adds new cars and Spa

Tomorrow morning, 31st October, at 6am GMT/ 7am CET the 1.47 update for Gran Tourismo Sport will be released and it adds a legendary race track and four new cars for you to pootle along in.

New vehicles

  • Porsche Taycan Turbo S ’19
  • Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce ’15
  • Mazda Demio XD Touring ’15
  • Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.8 AMG ’71

Here’s what Kazunori Yamauchi, President of Polyphony Digital, had to say about the new Porcshe.

The Taycan is Porsche’s answer to the question of sustainable mobility, their first fully-electric vehicle.

A sports sedan that combines sports performance with everyday usability, its electric all-wheel-drive system uses 2 electric motors mounted on the front and rear axles, with the rear-motor encompassing a revolutionary 2-speed transmission allowing unparalleled acceleration and efficiency at high speeds.

Both the Turbo and the Turbo S models normally output 460 kW (616 BHP), but with the overboost feature engaged the output of the Turbo model is boosted to 500 kW (670 BHP), and the Turbo S cranks out a staggering 560 kW (750 BHP).

This incredible power output is enabled by the first 800-volt power unit to be seen in a production car, which successfully achieves greater efficiency while drastically reducing charging time.

And of course no effort has been spared in producing dynamic handling. It features Porsche’s superior active suspension management and torque vectoring technology, controlling these systems in sync to provide the best possible driving experience under all driving conditions. Taycan’s technical advances also extend to its user interface, enabling media and air-conditioning to be operated directly through its intuitive voice control system.

The Taycan carries forward Porsche’s historical lineage while signaling a new era of automobiles. Truly a model in which heritage meets the future.

The new track is the Spa-Francorchamps which is located 40km Southeast of Liège, Eastern Belgium’s industrial city.

In addition, the following new rounds have been added to the GT League:
