Polyphony Digital has released a new update for their Gran Turismo 6 Playstation 3 racer.
Aside from several small changes listed below, the 2.1 GB update introduces two brand new “Vision Gran Turismo” cars from Aston Martin & Nissan.
These fictional concept cars have become a popular trend in the Gran Turismo world as several manufactures have now designed concept cars for the title.
The two newest ones can be seen below, while the Aston Martin comes with a 800hp V12 engine, the Nissan uses a V6 bi-turbo hybrid setup with no less than three electrical motors.
Brake Caliper Paint
It is now possible to repaint the brake calipers on cars equipped with [Racing Brakes] purchased within the [Suspension] menu of [Tuning Parts]. Please note there are certain cars that cannot be repainted using this feature.
More Car Number Customization Options
More cars have been made compatible with the [Driver Number] feature in the [Garage]. There is also an increased selection of [Base] sheet designs on which the numbers can be displayed.
Engine brake reduction control on formula cars disabled
Engine brake reduction control that was active on certain formula cars has been disabled. This is a feature that helps you avoid spinning out from excessive braking forces generated by the engine while the throttle is in the off position. This was accomplished by slightly opening the throttle while cornering even with no input to the accelerator.
GT6 owners can update their installation by simply starting their Playstation 3 with the console connected to the internet. Gran Turismo 6 is available for purchase here.
