Gran Turismo Sport 1.38 update patch notes

New cars

For those car collectors out there, the Gran Turismo Sport 1.38 update is a good one. It introduces not one, not two, not three, but five new cars to the game. The five new cars are as follows:

  • Audi TT Coupe 3.2 quattro ’03
  • Honda Fit Hybrid ’14
  • Porsche 962 C ’88
  • Renault R8 Gordini ’66
  • Toyota Sprinter Trueno 3-door 1600GT APEX (AE86) ’83

As you can see, the five new cars represent a few different eras and there should be something to please everyone in that list (we can’t stop looking at the Toyota).

New GT events

Five new cars isn’t all that is being added to Gran Turismo Sport thanks to the 1.13 update, however. New events have been added to the GT League, for example. You will now be able to take on additional rounds of the Competition de France, the Tourist Trophy, and the Group 1 Cup. On top of this, new visual enhancements have been made. Racing through Oceania should look better than ever thanks to the 1.13 update.

Of course, where would an update be without a few gameplay tweaks and fixes? Overtaking issues in various electric cars have been altered, a handful of tracks have been optimized, and you will no longer crash into semi-transparent opposition cars during online races. Other changes have been made too, but for those, we’d recommend scooting over to the full patch notes below.
