Gran Turismo 7 launched earlier this year to great fanfare – though the title was admittedly missing some necessary features. One major omission was the ability to sell your cars as a means to purchase others. Fortunately, this (and much more) is now available thanks to GT7’s latest free update.
Making the announcement on the PlayStation Blog, Ken Chan – the senior product manager at SIE – revealed that the much-requested feature to sell your cars is now finally available in GT7, saying “With the latest 1.26 patch update installed (internet connection required), players would be able to sell cars within their personal garage once the GT Café Menus are completed.”
This should greatly help players with acquiring new cars, as they can now sell an old one in order to partially (or fully) finance the purchasing of another vehicle.
Speaking of new vehicles, this update also adds 3 new cars into the game:
- BMW M2 Competition ‘18 – “A hard-boiled FR that hides the power of a demon in its compact body.”
- Ford Sierra RS 500 Cosworth ‘87 – “A Cosworth tuned masterpiece that dominated touring car racing”
- Nissan Silvia K’s Aero (S14) ‘96 – “The top grade of the S14 adds a rear spoiler and leather wrapped steering wheel”
That is not all, as the update also adds one new track to the game in the form of the ‘Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta Race Circuit’ (Total Length: 4,088m, Elevation Change: 38m, Number of corners: 12, Longest Straight: 1275m). Finally, this update also brings with it two new ‘scapes’ for GT7’s photo mode.
Though the game was not without its controversy at launch, the litany of free updates released so far seem to be directly addressing some of the biggest complaints held by fans, meaning when all is said and done GT7 should hopefully be the best entry in the series yet.
