check out the new cars in the update…
About a week ago, Polyphony Digital director Kazunori Yamauchi posted on his Twitter account the shadows of the next three vehicles to integrate Gran Turismo 7. Just yesterday, these were made official.
We go back to heat the bitumen
What could be better than a teaser trailer to introduce us to our new racing cars. We start with the Volkswagen ID.R ’19an electric prototype that broke speed records around the world:
The body of the ID.R is made of carbon fiber with oversized fenders front and rear to generate maximum downforce. At 5.2 meters long, the car is relatively wide, but still weighs less than 1,100 kg. The dual motor all-wheel drive produces a maximum of 500 kW (670 HP)/650 Nm (66.3 kgfm), enabling it to do 0-100 km/h in just 2.25 seconds. These performance stats put it on par with other internal combustion engine racing cars.
Let’s continue with the Nissan Silvia K Model S (S14) ’94the 6th generation model:
The width of the S14 is 1,730mm compared to 1,690mm for the S13, with track width increased accordingly. The new model is also 30mm longer, at 4,500mm, and 5mm higher, at 1,295mm, to result in an overall more imposing body. The softened lines of the body further emphasize the width of the car. The K model is additionally fitted with 16-inch rims as standard. The engine is a new version of the SR20 from the S13.
And finally, let’s end with the concept car Virtual Porsche Vision Gran Turismo Spyderdescribed as “the future of sports cars from Porsche”:
The Porsche Vision Gran Turismo continues this tradition of the German manufacturer while being a modern and bold vision of the sports car of the future. It combines iconic design elements of the brand’s historic sports cars with the racing genes of the 919 Hybrid and the pioneering spirit of Porsche’s first electric car, the Taycan, to transform everything into a lightweight, high-performance sports car.
