Ferrari F50 and More Added to GT Sport 1.31 Update

The December update for GT Sport is finally here and they are ending the year in style. Everything in this update is awesome, but the new cars are definitely the highlight. It doesn’t matter what you’re into they have a cool car you’ll like.

New Cars

Ferrari F50 and McLaren GTR

The two most notable cars for me is the Ferrari F50 and the McLaren P1 GTR. A lot of people love the Ferrari F40, but the F50 basically took what the F40 did and modernized it with smoother styling. It is also considerably rarer as there are less than 400 while there are a bit under 1400 F40s. That is almost 1000 less F50s in the world, which is quite a bit.

  • Ferrari F50 ’95(N500)
  • McLaren P1 GTR ’16(Gr.X)
  • BMW M3 Coupé ’07(N400)
  • Tesla Motors Model S Signature Performance ’12(Gr.X)
  • Pontiac Firebird Trans Am ’78(N200)
  • Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray Sport Coupe (C2) ’63(N400)
  • GReddy Fugu Z (N300)

However, the most special car to be added is actually the 2015 Gran Turismo Awards SEMA winner which was an S30 Datsun Z, nicknamed the ‘Fugu Z’.

About the car:

The car was built by the actor Sung Kang, known for his role in the ‘Fast and the Furious’ movie series. It is based on a 1973 240Z which he bought in a stock state, and it was custom built to his desired specifications. The most notable feature of the exterior is the Rocket Bunny body kit consisting of very wide fenders and front/rear spoilers. And of course, the car is not just for looks. The engine is the famed RB26DETT from the Skyline GTR converted to natural aspiration, with mechanical tuning bringing its power up to 216 BHP. Using E85 Indy car fuel, it can produce about 295 BHP. To withstand this power, a roll cage is welded to the interior. In order to reduce weight, the dashboard and console are custom made by CarbonSignal.

New Track

GT Sport - Tokyo Express Loop

Fans of Japanese city race tracks will be happy to hear that Tokyo Expressway South Route has been added to the game. There is already a Central and East route, but the South route is very different. It features many mid to high-speed S curves, and its home straight is right beside the high-speed railway. Not only that, but there is an Inner Loop layout, which goes through a shipping terminal. It has many hairpin turns and chicanes making it quite an exciting drive.

GT League

Seven new rounds have been added in total. Also, Circuit Experience has added Catalunya Circuit Grand Prix Layout.

Beginner League: Two new rounds have been added to the Nissan GT-R cup event.

Amateur League: Two new rounds have been added to the Real Circuit Tours event.

Professional League: Two new rounds have been added to the Mercedes AMG Grand Prix event.

Endurance League: One new round has been added to the Gr. 3 Endurance League event.

There is also an FIA section in the Museum. To end things off, Scapes has Peugeot areas at Brand Central as well as a “Season’s Greetings” backdrop for Christmas time has been added.
