Free Gran Turismo 7: On December 15th, gamers will be able to get their hands on the five new cars that have been announced for the upcoming 1.27 update to Gran Turismo 7. The update will arrive on December 15 at 0600-0800 UTC, which is in line with the scheduled server maintenance. Updates can be downloaded and installed during this time, but users won’t be able to access them until the server maintenance is complete.
This morning’s trailer hints that the update will focus solely on cars, as there are no mentions of new tracks or layouts in the upbeat 30-second short. The traditional practice is to keep any new features or other changes secret until the update actually goes live and the patch notes are made available while focusing solely on the content that will be updated.
It turns out that our predictions of the five-car pack based on Kazunori Yamauchi’s weekend “silhouette” teaser were spot-on. The teaser obviously highlights the Ferrari Vision Gran Turismo. At last month’s Gran Turismo World Final in Monaco, we got a look at the first Vision car from the renowned Italian manufacturer, but not everyone will be able to get behind the wheel of it anytime soon.
Players who answer the last “Viewer’s Gift Campaign” question correctly in the week following the Nations Cup final will be the only ones given “early access.” All other players will have to wait until the 25th anniversary of Gran Turismo—December 23—to purchase the automobile, which will be delivered for free to those players who preordered it.

The VGT is inspired by numerous historical Ferrari models, including the 330 P4 and the Modulo concept car, and it is powered by an electric version of Ferrari’s latest V6 engine, which can be found in the 296 GTB and the 499P race car. In addition to the latest iteration of Ferrari’s flagship sports car, three new performance models have joined the ranks of the most sought-after cars on the market.
The base version of Bugatti’s Chiron, the world’s fastest production automobile when it was released, will be included. With 1,500 horsepower and 261 miles per hour, the Bugatti Chiron is an ultra-luxurious grand tourer that has been anticipated since its introduction in the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo for GT Sport (and then GT7) in 2015.

This revision also marks the first appearance of the Chevrolet Corvette C8 generation in Stingray form, making it the first production mid-engined Corvette. The 6.2-litre, 490-horsepower V8 and the car’s new mid-engine layout have fundamentally altered the character of America’s sports car, and gamers may now compare it to the C2, C3, C4, C6, and C7 generations.

Alfa Romeo also offers the Giulia GTAm. Since the Quadrifoglio already has a Ferrari-developed 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 providing nearly twice the power of any other car in the range, it’s hard to envision the need for anything else.
Still, Alfa cranked up the power even higher and stripped the car down significantly, including doing away with the back seats, for the GTAm version. The four-door model is among the quickest available.
The Toyota Celica ST205 GT-Four rally vehicle, a perennial favourite, is also making a comeback. Since Gran Turismo 3 in 2001, this iconic but also highly contentious machine has been a mainstay of the GT series, although it was noticeably absent from GT Sport.
The upgrade will also include 40 new Scapes locales inspired by Norway in addition to the automobile content, but beyond that, its specifics are currently unknown. Once the update goes live on Thursday, December 15th, we will provide more information.
Gran Turismo 7 is like an everlasting Christmas present, even if it’s almost Christmas. Since the game has settled into a monthly update schedule, players on the PS5 and PS4 can look forward to a hefty free content drop on December 15th.

Creator Kazunori Yamauchi has hinted that the upgrade will include five vehicles, one of which is the Ferrari Vision GT. Those who participated in the Gran Turismo World Finals Viewer’s Campaign can get this for free upon launch.
The identities of the remaining four vehicles are up for debate, however, GTPlanet.net thinks they are the Chevrolet Corvette C8, the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTAm, the Toyota Celica ST205, and the Bugatti Chiron. Don’t take this as gospel, but it seems like reasonable inferences may be drawn from the silhouettes.
