Sony and Polyphony Digital have released a brand-new Gran Turismo 7 update. The 1.37 update brings with it new cars, track layouts, and more.

It’s always worth looking into what an update adds to a game and what it changes while you sit there waiting for it to finish downloading. Fortunately, the development team has detailed exactly what to expect from the new patch.

Read on below to find out everything the new Gran Turismo 7 1.31 update is adding to the game and for the full list of patch notes.

When is the next Gran Turismo 7 update?

This new Gran Turismo 7 update should go live at 6am GMT on 30th March, on both PS4 and PS5 versions of the game, with just one difference in the update between the two consoles.

For anyone counting along at home, this patch has been officially designated Gran Turismo 7's 1.31 update, and it's quite a significant one as we'll explain below.

What’s new in the Gran Turismo 7 1.31 update?

The Gran Turismo 7 1.31 update adds five new cars into the game, two new track layouts for Nürburgring, new scapes, and 120 fps support (PS5-only).

  • Porsche Carrera GTS (904) ‘64

New Nürburgring Track Layouts

Two new layouts for Germany's "Nürburgring" will find their way into the game this month.

  • Nürburgring Endurance
      • Total Length, 23,864m; Elevation Difference, 300m; Number of Corners, 85; Longest Straight, 2,135m
      • The "Endurance" layout combines the "Nordschleife" and the "Grand Prix" courses to produce a track that measures 23,864m in length. This challenging technical course takes a shortcut through the Grand Prix section for a faster return to the Nordschleife and has seen use in races like the Nürburgring Endurance Series (NLS.)
  • Nürburgring Sprint
    • Total Length, 3,629m; Elevation Difference, 33m; Number of Corners, 12; Longest Straight, 620m
    • The "Sprint" layout takes a shortcut at Turn 4 of the Grand Prix circuit to produce a short track that measures 3,629m in length. The tight nature of this layout makes it ideal for exciting races for lower-speed road cars.
