Gran Turismo 7 Update Adds New GT Vision and Other Cars, Events, Photo Exports, and More

Gran Turismo 7 update 1.18

A new Gran Turismo 7 update hits the track today, featuring new cars, circuits, Café menus, the ability to export photos, and more. Fans have been speculating about the new cars following a hint last week, but the guesses weren’t entirely accurate – players can look forward to the Toyota GR010 Hybrid ’21, Roadster Shop Rampage Camaro, and a new virtual fantasy car, the Suzuki Vision Gran Turismo. You can check out the new rides in the trailer, below.
