The latest free update to Gran Turismo 7 is adding a group of five cars, a couple of new layouts for Nürburgring, and you can see the cherry blossoms bloom in Japan.

The 3.1 update goes live tomorrow, March 30, and while it is not a game-changing update necessarily, it is always welcome to see new content for gamers to play around with added to the game.

The five cars being added to the game include:

  • Audi RS 5 Turbo DTM ’19
  • Mazda3 X Burgundy Selection ’19
  • Porsche 959 ’87
  • Porsche Carrera GTS (904) ’64
  • Toyota Alphard Executive Lounge ’18

When looking at the list above, the one that easily stands out the most from the others is the Toyota Alphard Executive Lounge. In a game filled with cars built for speed, this vehicle is a popular Japanese minivan that you can drive around for a more relaxed drive.

In addition to the cars, Nürburgring has a couple of new track layouts being added to the game. The first is called Nürburgring Endurance and combines the Grand Prix and Nordschleife courses and is expected to be a tougher challenge for drivers. The second layout, named Nürburgring Sprint, is a shorter version of Grand Prix and is built for lower-speed cars, so maybe you can get some use out of the minivan here.

Finally, on the smallest of sides of this update is a new scape of cherry blossoms you can use to take some fun pictures with your favorite car.

Update 3.1 won’t blow you away, but if you are a big fan of Gran Turismo 7, it might be worth downloading to look at the new content.
