Four New Cars
Gran Turismo 7 update 1.20 introduces four new cars in the game. These are the McLaren MP4/4 ’88, Pontiac GTO ‘The Judge,’ ’69, Porsche Cayman GT4 ’16, and De Tomaso Mangusta (Christian Dior).
McLaren MP4/4 ’88 is a legendary F1 machine that marked the end of the Turbo era. It has a low height, low drag machine designed by Gordon Murray and Steve Nichols and powered by the Honda RA168E engine. It has maximum boost pressures reduced from 4 bars to 2.5 bars and on-board fuel litres to 150 litres in total.
Pontiac GTO ‘The Judge’ ’69 is the follow-up of the original muscle car on 1964. General Motors released ‘The Judge’ in 1969 which costs a mere $332. It included unique decals and racing stripes, a Hurst shifter heavy-duty suspension, wider tires, and a rear spoiler. The engine was upgraded to the 6.6L ‘Ram Air III’ V8, which was listed at 460 BHP but rumored to produce much more.
Porsche Cayman GT4 ’16 is a motorsport-focused Cayman with the power of the 911. Its notable feature is the powertrain. Based on that of the 911 Carerra S, it combines a 3.8L flat-6 engine with a 6-speed manual transmission and produces 379 BHP, more than the base model 911 Carrera. The brakes and suspension use parts from the 991 GT3 and the ride height has been lowered 30 mm from the standard position.
De Tomaso Mangusta (Christian Dior) is an Italian sports car reimagined by a fashion giant. The styling which exhibits both finesse and strength was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro during his days at Carrozzeria Ghia and is renowned for its gull-winged rear hatch. Racing number 47 on the bonnet represents 1947, the year of Dior’s revolutionary debut collection.
Three new Layouts Added to Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya
Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya GP Layout No Chicane
The chicane running into the final corner has been removed, transforming this once low-speed sector into a high-speed right turn and providing a thrilling layout where aerodynamics is thoroughly put to the test. To accompany the ‘No Chicane’ layout being added to the game, the existing Catalunya circuit has been titled ‘Circuit de Barcelona – Catalunya GP Layout’. Circuit de Barcelona ‒ Catalunya is a race circuit located approximately 30km north of Barcelona, Spain. It has been the stage for many epic F1 and MotoGP races since opening in September 1991
Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya National Layout
The home straight from the GP Layout now runs into a hairpin turn, resulting in a more compact track that completely cuts through Sector 1 and half of Sector 2. Yet, there is still plenty on offer as the long back straight and technical 3rd Sector are preserved, providing a very satisfying racing experience.
Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya Rallycross Layout
This special rallycross layout is made up of the GP Layout’s Sector 3 and infield areas, resulting in a unique hybrid track composed of paved and unpaved surfaces. The jump in the middle of the track is a sight to behold.
